    I'd be willing to bet that any mixup might be a result of a customs guy somewhere being a selfish prick
    I placed three orders (one of which just paypal after talking to Florence), and received all three.

    Thanks to everyone for advice!

    Finally I was able to contact Florence by phone (this morning)
    and I have to say, she's really very friendly lady. I called
    +41 27 321 27 92 and she answered me immidiatelly.
    I gave her my address and my order/payment details.
    She asked me too if I would like to get samples of Nejma parfums.
    Anyway, I sent my details to their new e-mail address [email protected]
    and I hope, she'll solve problems with my order. As she said,
    their old e-mail address [email protected] is no more valid.

    Time to come out of the closet. This was probably really stupid, just motivated by bargain greed and all you guys bragging about your free gifts .
    I ordered (blind) Aoud Damascus and Patchouli Leaves. Damascus, as I now know from a sample I just got from another basenoter, is a pleasant rose-skin scent, quite subtle, a bit soapy, the oud disappearing rather quickly, and I find it totally boring. Hoping for Patchouli Leaves and a great freebie. My package is stuck at customs and I have to make a stupid trip to way down yonder to pick it up. Without counting freebies (probably sandflowers, hopefully some Nejma samples) savings will be:
    Retail Order
    Aoud Damascus €122 CHF 93
    Patchouli Leaves € 50 CHF 43
    Shipping 25
    Duties 27.37
    188.37

    total € 172 112.47 = € 59.53

    I think I placed an order for Black Aoud and Greyland on the same day! Don't worry, mine hasn't come in yet either. Although, I do live a lot farther away from them than you do. I just figure that it will take some time since they were busy with their sale and switching over their website.

    You know, it may be that US Post actually opened the parcel and when they saw it was perfume, switched it from Airmail to Ground, and thus it'll take longer to arrive.

    "Nous vous confirmons l'expédition de votre commande numéro xxxxxxx"

    I thought this is meant to be a shipping confirmation, isn't it?
    But that is simply not possible:
    My swiss shipping address would have received after 3 days, but it has taken two weeks and three days.
    So in my case the package was sent two weeks after I got the shipping confirmation mail. Probably a logistical error in the Montale system that they send the shipping confirmation on the same day as they got the order. Probably would be alright under normal circumstances, but not when hundreds of orders go in a day. Add some time for actual delivery times and maybe customs involved, you get easily more than a month in some cases, which wouldn't even be a delay.

    Well, I'm hoping to receive mine tomorrow. These UK postal strikes have been too much to bear. If I don't get it tomorrow, the only way to satisfy my curiosity of Aoud Ambre (blind purchase) would be to pop down to the Montale store in Paris because, after tomorrow, that's where I'll be for a few days.

    I bet you anything it turns up on the day of my departure...

    Well if you are looking for a good deal on the Montale's, you can surely try mailing her. Though i think calling her is a better option coz i don't think she really responds to her mail.

    If she is mailing my order today, i am sure she has got some leftover stock.

    With it was a box of three 5ml roller vials of Wood & Spices, Intense Tiare, and

    I'm starting to get ticked off. I ordered my stuff around October 4th and haven't heard a damn thing since. What irritates me is that I got a response to my initial email within a half an hour-- I posted my payment to paypal on the 4th and the records indicate that the transaction was completed-- and the money was debited from my bank account.

    I never got acknowlegment of my order, nor any confirmation or shipping info. Squat. I sent a few more emails. Nothing. Then yesterday I sent an email to the new email address. Nothing still. I don't like calling people on the phone, but that may be what I have to do. Christ, I don't care if it takes some time to get here, but I just want to know if it IS or ISN'T on the way. Instead of throwing free shit at people, why don't they just do a little better job of communicating. It's not like that's asking a lot.

    I'm giving them two more days and then I'm getting on the phone.

    This is kind of stupid, but I was going to call and then I realized I've never made an international call before and I have no idea how to do it.

    I'm in the USA, and I looked on Verizon's (I only have my cell phone) site and I don't see Switzerland listed as a company that I can place a call to. The phone #'s that I've seen here are 11 digits-- I thought there was supposed to be 10.

    Help!


    Update--my phone wasn't set up for international dialing and I can't get it added until 6AM-- so I guess I'll have to wait to call. this sux.
    --------------------------------------
    2nd update--OK, I got my international dialing set up on my phone and from the USA I dialed 011 41 27 321 2792.

    I didn't get a dial tone, but rather something similar to a busy signal, but not quite. It was one tone every three seconds. Can anybody give me advice?

    I think the sound I heard was just the Swiss ringback-- meaning nobody's there (I figured this out by looking at a site with technical info-- it gives the length, frequency etc of every country's telephone specific data-- The ringback tone in Switzerland is listed at 425Hz, I know the musical note "A" is 440 Hz, and so I played A flat on my piano whilst listening to the tone at the other end (I'm a musician)-- 425 HZ is closer to A flat than A-- So my deductions lead me to believe that...there's nobody there...

    I guess I'll have to keep trying. Maybe they're on lunch break.

    I can't believe what a nerd I am-- but I'm determined!
    --------------------------------------
    Yes! She answered the phone-- She sounded very nice --I'm glad she speaks English, she answered in French... She's checking her records and is sending me an email.

    It is a better idea to call them without delaying. Chances are Florence will say that i think the parcel is lost but i will send another one. I really don't know how they can lose so many parcels and they accept it so casually and send another one without investigating.

    I called her 3 days ago and she said she's got my no. on her cell and she will call back in 10minutes. She didnt call back for 2 hours. I called her back. Then she said that she's emailed me already. I checked my mail and there wasn't any. I called her the 3rd time and she said that she can't find my mail id. So i mailed her again while i was over the phone and ensured she got my email. She confirmed she did and said that she will arrange to send it again and give me a tracking number.

    3 days have elapsed and i have not got my tracking number yet. I did mail her yesterday and thankfully she responded saying the parcel will be shipped directly from Geneva and that she will mail me my tracking no. the same day. 40 hours later i still have NOTHING.

    I don't want to be too pushy but it surely is making me restless. If this purchase was on ebay it'd be so easy to sort things out. I just cannot digest how these people are so callous towards their customers who have placed orders valuing $400. I just hope that eventually i will get my bottles. I have never ever waited so desperately for any other parcel. This one just refuses to show up in the mail.

    My suggestion is call them, if its more than 3 weeks already.

    I am amazed at how Florence can expect to run a business with such a callous attitude. I was wondering how she could keep resending the missing orders, as she has limited stock left.

    I sent her six e-mails asking for the available stock list, as well as ordering a few more bottles, using both the old and the new e-mail addresses, but she never replied. I am fed up with her and I will order direct from Paris, they have a much better service; not worth the price difference. One can get good deals from Paris.

    After being relieved at getting Florence on the phone, I'm starting to worry again. When I spoke to her, she sounded polite, but also a bit rushed. She seemed to want to get off the phone quickly and she insisted that she would be sending me an email in 5 minutes. I never got an email. I'm having the same experience Gupts is.

    A few days ago I had tried to send an email to the new address at [email protected] , but received a message saying that address was not valid. Does anyone have a surefire email address that works?

    It does make me mad that they're throwing so many free bottles around-- they had better have enough left in stock to fulfill my order-- after all they've taken my money.


    Also, to you in the USA who have received your orders, what carrier delivered them? was it UPS, the Postal Service?
    --------------------------------------
    PS- Contrast this service with what I've received from Scentiments-- I merely sent them an email yesterday over their mistake of sending me Creed Original Vetiver instead of Vetiver '48, and when I woke up today they had sent me two emails, and they just called me five minutes ago expressing their apologies and offering to make it right.

    I still have not received mine either. In fact, I never received anything after the purchase. The only reason I know that there was a transaction is that I can see that they took money out of my account. I am planning on calling her tomorrow morning. We'll see what happens.
