    No I ordered mine on the 4th and so did a few other people here. I'm unsure as to what their process is for actually processing orders.

    Idk maybe they have a system and are able to see the people who order a lot from their site and those are the people they chose to get orders to. Idk all speculation on my part.

    It does seem like you should have gotten yours if you ordered on the 3rd tho.

    It seems like it was a case of what, not when, you ordered. They obviously do not have a computerized inventory system, and unfortunately, someone was asleep in their warehouse.

    I just received my shipment and I'm really happy with it. I did have two scents cancelled from my order because they were out of stock, but I did get the other three I wanted-- and it was a great deal, pricewise.

    I got the following:

    Mure et Musc Extreme-- 3.4 oz. Vintage bottle. Smells amazing. I don't find this feminine at all. Very unisex. I have a small bottle of the original Mure et Musc, and the Extreme is everything I wanted the EDT to be. This is an instant favorite for me.

    Bois Farine-- 3.4 oz. Vintage bottle. A very strange fragrance in that I love the smell of it, but it makes me crave Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch with a vengeance. It's oddly gourmand to the extreme. Maybe it's because I haven't even breakfast or lunch today-- but I want to eat my wrist. I'm glad I was able to get a bottle of this, because it's so unique-- and at this price I could take a risk.

    Dzonghka-- 1.7oz. Current bottle. This one is weird too, but I like it a lot. I'd sampled it before. Very exotic. I do get lots of tea and incense. This is complex. Lots of stuff going on here.

    I'm really glad that I was able to get in on this sale. It's unfortunate that some people lost out (and there were several L'Artisans that I really wanted to get-- Timbuktu, Navegar, Voleur de Roses, L'Eau de Navigateur, Dzing!, Tea for Two, Patchouli Patch, Poivre Piquant-- that I lost out on)-- but some of us did get lucky.

    I'm also glad that my 3.4 oz L'Artisans arrived in the vintage, old-school bottles. They smell amazingly fresh-- and they match the other 3.4 oz L'Artisans in my drobe, which were also the vintage style bottles.

    This sale has renewed my interest in the house of L'Artisan-- I had almost forgotten how amazing their scents are!

    With my accidental layering of Mure et Musc Extreme and Bois Farine, I smell like both Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch AND Cap'n Crunch with Crunchberries! I'd better go get some lunch!

    Well, if customer A ordered eau du X on may 3rd and customer B order the same frag 15 hours later, shouldn't it stand to reason that customer A gets priority on the shipment?

    I agree with you. But it doesn't seem to matter when anyone ordered - without FragranceNet having a state-of-the-art inventory system anything can go wrong, and it apparently did.

    I ordered my Timbuktu on the 4th. And to be quite honest, the only reason I ordered it was because of the low price. I have enough samples of it to satisfy the amount of times I would actually wear it.

    Now if I missed out on a bottle of their Havana Vanille or Al Oudh, I would be really upset.

    Your bottles was unboxed? If yes, theyre completely new?

    FragranceNet handled this situation in a completely unprofessional manner. Boxed/unboxed, old/new; charging people's accounts on orders that they knew they could never fill, and then not refunding the money for days; my refund still hasn't showed up on my CC; sending out partially filled orders that may, or may not, include any L'Artisan product.

    I'm crossing them off my do-business-with list.

    It takes credit cards companies about 5 days to process the refund.

    I called Pay Pal and Fragrancenet and they both told me the same thing.

    They came new-in-box. Also, each bottle was unsprayed-- I had to prime the sprayers on each one.

    I ended up wearing Dzonghka to work and was surprised that I got a few compliments on it; hadn't pegged it as a crowd pleaser, but I was wrong. Dzongkha also strikes me a little bit like a cousin to Timbuktu-- there are some strong stylistic similarities.

    Yeah, and because of that precisely, the fragrancenet creepos should be aware that those fraudulent commercial practices do quite a damage on someone's account.

    This is true. I couldn't agree with you more.

    I am planning on ordering a Bond no. 9 fragrance from them, BUT until I see my money has been refunded I will not be ordering anything from them at all AND if I have to call after 5 days I will never order from them again.

    End of story.

    Edit..............

    Just checked my paypal and see where they did refund my account. I'm sure it will be processed by the credit card company in a timely manner.

    Definitely happy about this. Will order my Bond no. 9 now.

    Looking forward to reading more thoughts of the recieved fragrances....etc. Anything surprise you guys ? Any good blind buys ? I like this house, but only Dzing! really impresses me enough for a full bottle. If I had less full bottles, well, perhaps Merchant Loup. We should make this the L'artisan Parfumer humping thread .
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    I'd love to hear people's thoughts on these as they come in.

    And if this becomes the unofficial L'Artisan thread, think of how envious newcomers will be when they learn how many bottles were sold for $35-50 during the Fragrancenet L'Artisan Sale of May '12.

    All I can say is this vintage Méchant Loup is much different than the new Méchant Loup that I have a sample of, although about an hour into the drydown they are very close.

    My Timbuktu just arrived this afternoon brand new in box, that was the only one I ordered, placed the order on the 3rd late in the pm.

    Default Re: L'artisan great deal at Fragrancenet

    One of my orders containing 3 fragrances had a high shipping cost.
    Then they canceled 2 items and shipping just one, but the shipping cost remained the same. I will not complaint for 10 bucks on shipping that should have been refunded (specially with the risk of my item being canceled) but they should think on that, its not a fair practice.

    I'm wearing my Timbuktu today and it's actually pretty nice. The frankincense is the most prominent note that I smell. It actually smells like the incense section of a natural food store. The longevity was pretty good the first time I tested it on skin. I'll report back with the longevity later.

    My Timbuktu came in - no VdR, either, so they were right about not shipping it.

    It is an older bottle, the box is a bit dented, and the bottle 95-99% full, but definitely smells like the real thing. I get the feeling that these were returns, too.

    Yours wasn't full? Mine was BNIB 100%. I had to prime the sprayer. The box was dented at the top as you can probably tell from my pic earlier.

    Just a tad under yours. The level was a bit below the shoulder of the bottle. And it was partially primed - as if some had evaporated. Probably used as a tester in the store.
