    Thank you for the tip, scentemental. I don't visit the basenotes community forum that often, so I suppose I didn't think to search for a similar question from an earlier time. I will go back and read this now. Thanks again --AnnS.

    Just a little follow up: the eau de Joy edp came OK, and smells perfect. Phew. I suppose I dodged a bullet, and will be cautious from now on. I suppose it does pay off sometimes to take a risk, though after reading the big thread mentioned above, I was pretty anxious about the whole thing. Thanks everyone, etc. AnnS

    Glad I typed "Perfume Network Reviews" in Google. Peace of mind for sure! Thanks, Basenoters.

    you have no need to worry, I have already used their services. item they sent to me is so nice and has low price. It is not of old stock. I heard that overstockperfume generally used new stock, they ordered for new stock if current stock is going to be empty. They never used old stock.

    Bump. Why? Because this thread deserve a place of prominence on Basenotes and in Google searches.

    Also, I pledge to bump this thread every time one of their shills posts here on Basenotes.

    In case there is someone who is not aware: most major credit cards will gladly credit back your account for a sale that goes bad for whatever reason. There are some cards that even credit your account for sales if the merchandise is lost in delivery.

    The credit card companies do this because on net it increases the reliability of their service and increases the trust of their customers who will then more readily use their credit cards. Also, they just take the money from the vendor's account, so there is not a loss to the credit card company.

    Check the fine print, or call your credit card customer service if you have been ripped off or if your merchandise was not delivered as expected.

    I don't know enough about paypal to comment on that, but if you use a credit card through paypal it should be the same policy on the part of your credit card company.

    Do not bet the farm on that.

    I paid for a properly researched program to work on my system and supposedly compatible electronic download of a computer program via my VISA card. The program was a mess. Damn near destroyed my ability to operate my computer and never worked properly either. I asked VISA to void the sale as it was totally unuseable and I had to pay a pro to rid my computer of the persistant remnants of the damn thing. They refused. I ate the $90.00 for the program and $50.00 to remove the remnants and fix the problems it created.

    Yeah. Software is a special category of merchandise. It is also difficult to return software to a brick and mortar store.

    Also on the Google Map listing it said "Also at the Address" Overstockperfume

    http://www.overstockperfume.com/ and click on About Us you'll see they have the same address except on the SECOND floor

    This is such a shady operation. Why have so many fronts if only to hide something?

    Haha damn I found more:
    According to this, Perfume Distributor was at the same address but now is elsewhere. (They even misspelled the address!) The address points to a residence.
    LOL slam. ya dude... its probably a fly by night operation. watered down solution. i wouldn't be surprised if people have bought 100 mL of water in a fancy bottle

    i think u did not read post of 'MassMenace' he got every thing fit and fine. and I've never had a problem with overstockperfume.com

    I don't think anyone is saying that these websites are always problematic, just sometimes so it's better to play it safe and shop at another website or at a brick and mortar store.

    I think perfumenetwork.com is also from the same bastards. I ordered once from 1stperfume, and got my package like 3 weeks late, never replied my e-mail; I just assumed my money was gone, and then all of a sudden my package arrived. With perfumenetwork.com I had the same experience, they only have an e-mail for contacting them, and I've ordered stuff that say that it is in stock, but they don't have it. My advice to everyone is to stick to good retailers like scentiments, beautyencounter, amazon (sometimes), etc.

    Now it all makes sense. That horrible experience that I had with Perfume Network occurred because it's one of the clones run by the same sleazebag operator as 1st Perfume! After sending multiple (unanswered) e-mails to Perfume Network complaining about a missing item and leaky bottle in the one order that I ever placed with them, I finally tried to post a review/feedback on their website. Miraculously, I was taken to 1st Perfume and my review disappeared. I think it's good to keep this thread going as long as this operation continues to cheat its customers. Everyone needs to be warned. Thank goodness my purchases were low-stakes and I'm out less than $25. I would not want others who may be tempted to spend more to have the same experience I did, or worse.

    I ordered perfume from Perfume Empo.rium. It took them six business days (eight calendar days) for them to get back to me and then only issue a refund as "Transaction cancelled by vendor." I was waiting for delivery! No personal explanation as to why. Not happy at all, as this was for a gift.

    Shipping should take, AT THE MOST, two days after an order, and I should have been told if the item was out of stock. The item should not have been posted if not in stock in the first place. Count me dissatisfied. They lost a customer and potential purchases.

    I find it incredibly frustrating that many of the online perfume discounters (even the supposedly reputable ones) will list things that are out of stock. Some websites list more "out of stock" items than in-stock ones. I will not buy from these sites.

    The worst practice is to list items as being in stock, but when you try to order them you are taken to a window that says "out of stock". Once this happens, the vendor is permanently off of my list of places to buy.

    Some places are slow to ship, but after an order or two I know what to expect in terms of shipping speed. I find this easier to deal with than the bait and switch tactics that so many places engage in.

    Default Our New Site. What do you guys think of this perfume site?

    Hi guys,

    Here's our current site: www.perfumeheadquarter.com

    Here's a snapshot of our redesign website: http://images.channeladvisor.com/Sel..._homepage1.jpg

    However we are in the process of redesigning the site itself. I've attach a snapshot of our new redesign. What do you guys think? Any suggestion on changes? Do you think our current site is better then our new site?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Anything that has a title that makes sense, as opposed to perfumeheadquarter, would be an improvement. (Headquarter is a verb, not a noun, and one that is used only infrequently.)

    Default Re: Our New Site. What do you guys think of this perfume site?

    Flemishpainter is right about "headquarter", so that's a good reason to change the name, even if there is no other. As for the site design, both of them look pretty much like all the other supermarket perfume websites.

    I second Doc Elly's comment, there's nothing particularly special about either. (I prefer the style of the new one over the old, but it's still rather "boilerplate" perfume website.) If you decide to stick with PerfumeHeadquarter, at least change it to "Headquarters" or HQ as I think you're trying to imply a wide selection and authority. If d'dara is the name... it doesn't make sense to me or "say" perfume. (just me maybe.) Hope that helps...
