    I think they are having major problems with their website. Here is what they announced on Facebook last Thursday(see below). Maybe everyone at the Court is currently consumed with getting the website back up. But typically it takes 2-3 weeks, and I live in the same state(Georgia). But then again it may just be the post-Hurricane postal service back-up.

    "Our storefront will be down for maintenance on Friday{11/2}, Saturday, and Sunday and we will not be taking new orders during this time. We will continue processing the orders we have already received."

    The website is still down as of today.

    This may or may not have anything to do with order delays, but I can attest that first class mail packages passing through the NY/NJ area have had delays. I had a bottle shipped Priority Mail from Portland that just disappeared from the tracking for 10 days. It took a total of 13 days to arrive in NYC.

    I'm in PA, it's not so bad over here (at least in most places). NYC and NJ got hit HARD and are in a lot of places, destroyed. I'm sad to say, if she was in one of those areas there's a good chance her shop no longer exists and all of her precious scents are gone. But in PA I doubt Sandy had too much effect. Many people in my area (myself included) didn't even lose power, although some of my coworkers lost it for a week.

    Just received my shipping confirmation (I placed my order on 10/25, so it's been about 2 weeks.)

    I'm REALLY excited to try Fields of Rubus. I can't wait till it gets here!

    Now their website says they're moving office, will be back up Monday and also gives a number to call. I actually wonder if they're trying to fix some of the issues. Here's hoping (and I may just find out if I really like that Fields of Rubus. Decant anyone?)

    I have been watching my package works it way through USPS and it looks it should be on it's way to Korea now.

    I did place an order with Surrender to Chance and they have been very responsive and have shipped my items already.

    I hope TPC is back up and running.

    Same here, just got shipping confirm. If their site had that info from the get-go, all the hella-belloo could've been avoided, even if it was storm related, simple enough to type 'Storm issues, be patient', obvious the storm didn't take down the server etc...still annoyed but happy things are moving.

    Trish McEvoy's site did have "storm issues" and I believe they still have well wishes and a place to donate for people who went through Sandy.

    I can't actually track anything with the tracking number they gave me. It says on the USPS site it's not really a tracking number but a confirmation number or something.

    EDIT: Nevermind, it must have turned into a tracking number after it got to the P.O.

    USPS doesn't update their tracking info regularly- it was still saying that my samples hadn't been received by the PO but I received them in my mailbox today.

    I'm disappointed that my Fields of Rubus didn't arrive, that was the one I was most looking forward to!!! Diane refunded it though. I think she must have been out of it. I'll have to order it from elsewhere.

    I ordered samples the day before yesterday and they shipped today. I think TPC may be finally getting its act together.

    Let's hope so! My samples arrived very nicely package (obviously with great care). I think maybe it's just hard for a one-woman business to keep up with demand.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new here and although I've worn fragrance for a long time, am just now starting to branch out and discover more than just the popular ones.

    Anyway, I placed an order with The Perfumed Court about a week ago. I had read some really bad reviews about them and although I had a good experience four years ago, I was worried that this time around wouldn't be so good.

    I got the shipping notice just a couple of days after ordering, but since then, it's been nothing but "electronic information received." I understand there was a holiday and weekend (although at least my local PO works a half-day on Saturday), but am getting nervous that I'll be ripped off.

    I'm probably just being an anxious ninny and there's nothing to worry about. I had no idea there were other etailers who did decants and would have ordered from them instead. My experience with Lucky Scent was very good, but they didn't have any of the perfumes I wanted to try in stock.

    So do you think I'm OK and will eventually receive my samples? It seems like things have gone fairly well for you guys going by the last few posts. I need to read more of this thread though.

    Thanks for any advice. I'm loving the forum!

    From everything I've read, you may need to wait longer than you would prefer to wait, but your order should eventually come.

    Thanks - I hope things go relatively smoothly. Next time I think I'll try another place though just to be safe.

    From everything I've ever read, nobody has been "ripped off" by TPC. I ordered recently, the day their site returned on-line after a brief hiatus, and got an extremely fast turnaround. There may be times you'll wait a week or two before getting shipping info but hey! If it was easy everyone would be doing it. The last time they kept me waiting for a week before giving me a shipping email I was quite ticked off but I've calmed down now. If you don't get what you paid for, yell, right here, because we will all want to know.

    Don't worry!!! You can order from TPC with confidence but don't expect fast service. Your samples will come.

    Don't worry. I'm sure you'll get your order from TPC. Mail is slow this time of year. If they've been having some sort of sale, orders are probably piling in and they're filling them as fast as they can. Just be patient.

    Thanks for replying, everyone!

    You're right - mail is slow, and if I had known they would be having a sale, I would have tried someplace else instead. My orders in 2008 took a bit of time to get here. It was just surprising to get a shipping notice so quickly, because I had prepared myself for a possible rocky experience, or at the very least a long wait time. So it's a little disappointing that the shipping notice doesn't really mean anything right now.

    Anyhow, I hope this is worth it. I almost bought the perfume discovery set from Ormonde Jayne, but decided to just start with a sample of Woman first. That is the one I am most excited to try because it's supposedly unconventional and that really appeals to me.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Well, the package arrived, but I'm so disappointed with the Ormonde Jayne sample. I should have gotten a bigger size because I can't tell what this fragrance is like on me with just the little bit that's in the vial. It's so odd - I put as good an amount as possible on my pulse points and barely smelled anything, yet applied a tiny amount (very little because I almost never like a Chanel fragrance) of Chanel No. 19 Poudre EDT on my wrists and that lasted an entire day and even was lingering when I woke up the next morning.

    So now I'm wondering if I should take a shot and just get the Ormonde Jayne in a full-sized bottle. It certainly smells nice in the vial. I had this happen with Child perfume too. The vial from PC barely lasted on me, yet the full-sized version lasted all day long. *scratches head*

    Have you guys experienced this?

    My experience with the purfumed court was the worst. Do not waste your money or time.
