    Default YourNewFragrance.com - good prices but any experiences???

    Looking for some Canali frags I came across this site that seems to have pretty good prices. I searched the forums and nobody seems to have mentioned this site.

    Would i be a fool to order off of here?

    Have bought from them once and received a prize through them on another occasion. The prize arrived considerably quicker.
    Both were the real deal and as per descriptions on the site, so no complaints there.

    One thing you do need to keep in mind, Justin: if customs decide to open your package they may add import tax to the total value of your package. So that's your own risk whne buying from outside of the EU!
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    There are two things that I don't like about it.

    First, the only address is a P.O. box in Wichita, Kansas. The Wichita part I don't mind - it's the P.O. box that bothers me.

    Second, in the bottom is a link to Discount Perfume, which goes to Perfume Bada Boom. At the bottom of that page is a link to Discount Perfume, which has a link at the bottom to Perfume Bada Boom. Those two sites only give a phone number.

    They may be fine, but I'm not willing to order from a company that won't freely give out its location.

    Default Scentberry.com

    Just thought I'd start this thread on Scentberry.com because I've seen their (new?) ad recently on BN. Others can put there experiences here and dpak can summarize it on his BIG list of online stores if y'all want.

    I just wanted to note that the ad says "we will meet or beat any price!!" but I cannot find anything about this on their site, so I imagine you'll have to call them if you want to take advantage of this feature. Given that the policy is not stated on the site, they can pretty-much qualify the price-guarantee any way they want.

    Also, they claim to be "The World's Largest Discount Fragrance Store", just as other online discounters claim the same thing in various similarly-worded statements. I plugged that exact phrase into Google and FragrenceNet.com pops up. A little further nosing around and turns out that both are located in Hauppauge, NY (but with diff street addresses). Partners? Just a FragranceNet.com alias?

    I really hate general, vague, sensational statements like this so these two issues above are already points against Scentberry.com in my book. However, I have not ordered from them so I can't attest to any actual experience with them.

    Default Re: Scentberry.com


    I have learned four things from almost a decade of online fragrance shopping:

    1- Any online fragrance site that claims they are the largest online retailer of fragrances, isn't.

    2- Any online fragrance site that claims they will not be beaten on price, will.

    3- Any online fragrance site that makes the two claims made above is not to be trusted as a general principle.

    4-
    Any online fragrance site that the does not have a phone number (and this one doesn't) through which they can be immediately contacted is definitely not to be trusted.

    A cursory check of their website confirmed that anything they sell can be found cheaper through other online fragrance retailers and eBay.

    My advice, avoid them
    and stick to the well-proven, professionally run sites with established integrity and customer service and care.

    Can you relate whether you had any issues with Customs on arrival in the UK? Invariably, we just can't get access to certain fragrances from UK stores which forces me to look abroad.

    Smile Re: Anyone purchase off of FragranceNet?

    Hello,I have purchased from fragrancenet quite a few times. The fragrances are brand new just like you would find in the department stores. There is no difference between the purfume and cologne from the department stores and the ones you get from fragrancenet other than the price difference. They have a large selection of great designer fragrances that are not knockoff's. I suggest that you give them a try. I cannot tell the difference between there fragrances at all. I have bought from department stores and fragrancenet. You will save a lot of money buying from them.

    "Royal Surface Mail" takes about 4 weeks to the Continent
    But the shipping and product price is awesome, I am just about to order again from them!

    The white tester boxes make a good impression as well (if they would not say "tester - not for sale")

    I have used them 3 times, unfortunately, I had never smelled the fragrances I bought from them before purchasing them so I can not speak to the authenticity of the fragrances. I definitely received one bottle (Live Jazz by YSL) that the ID Numbers cut off of the label. But the fragrance seems to hold up well. The other two bottles were as authentic as I could gather without having smelt them before. Good prices and great customer service and deliver.

    Don't be afraid, I've had an account there for a year, and I've never had any problems. My last order was in February 2009 for a half ounce of Joy at the best price I could find online. The customer service has always been excellent, I've dealt with Frank on more than one occasion, if it's after hours, and you leave an email you'll get a call back the next day. One of my favorite things about their website is that they don't list things they don't have, unlike most online sellers that when you click on the item you get the message: Out of Stock, or Notify Me. I always pay by credit card, or with Paypal, ( which they take) so I don't have to worry when buying online. I hate to hear people put down a business that they've never dealt with !

    This thread is old, I realize...but I'm having a bad experience with parfum1.
    Admittedly, the start of this issue was my own fault.

    Placed an order with them a few days ago but accidentally gave them the wrong billing address (d'oh!), I realized this morning, so I emailed them about it 8 AM, I hadn't gotten a response so I just called them...

    After about five rings:
    Parfum: *sounds annoyed* "Parfum"
    Me: "Hi...I placed an order with you guys a couple of days ago and---"
    Parfum: "Yeah..no, no, everyone is gone for the day" *Click*

    Veuve - thanks for the info.
    I have not recently bought from FragranceX- though when I have ordered several months ago - I have only ever had a good experience with them - fast shipping, customer service ,good prices . 4 products ordered separately last year- I rang customer services and said I had to have the last order quick - within 3 days as I was flying off on vacation - it was done without fuss or problems so I am surprised about the problems being had with them right now.' No smoke without fire' though so personally I won't be dealing with them again after reading about the delayed shipping and no contact. Especially no contact!

    www.beautyencounter.com - I have ordered from them twice. 1st order- no problems because I paid with a credit card. 2nd order is ongoing- what a headache ! because I paid via Paypal .Do not pay via Paypal with them - the way they handle Paypal leaves much to be desired . They require a screenshot of your order! Nonsense - If Fragrancenet.com can process your order via Paypal fast and without a screenshot - why do Beautyencounter need one ? All is now delayed and I think I will cancel my order and reorder using my credit card. UPDATE : turns out beautyencounter had to approve the Paypal payment - I let the order proceed-it's all getting a little tiring !
    UPDATE AGAIN : cancelled the order. Now they are out of stock .I am disgusted.
    I also want to add that www.reirien.com is an excellent online discount store- I have ordered 3 times from them . Perfect products . The lady who runs it, Dea - is very nice and I believe she is a perfumista. They have reasonable prices and a good selection of hard to finds. It's a new online store but I have ony good things to say about it. I order with confidence .

    I ordered from Beauty Encounter from their Amazon storefront. The item was listed in stock. I received conformation that my order was in process.

    A few days later, I received an e-mail stating the item was out of stock and told me to make another selection. I sighed and bought something else in the same line, but I would never do this again.

    I have ordered other items, however, with no problems. Fast service and comes well packaged.

    The same thing happened with me and Sephora on their Amazon store front. I ordered L'Heure Bleue EDT which was listed as in stock . They took the money but then I received an email saying the item was out of stock ! I had to ring their customer services 3 times to ensure my money was refunded and the order was cancelled. It took me over a week . I really did not expect such ineptitude from Sephora but I will not buy from their Amazon store front again.
