    Default Re: Fragrancenet.com is the WORST

    I ordered from them about 30 times in the last years - everything was fine- but my last order which I placed around X-Mas 2010 never ever arrived - and I never got a refund. Go figure! Of course, I'll never order from them again. I blew 100 Dollars... - no way they'll ever "see" me again.

    Shouldn't this thread be in "Internet Shopping and City Shopping Guides"?

    Anyway, I'm sure there has been problems and their packaging isn't the best but most people on the forum seem to use them alot and have no or little issues.

    Un profumo affettuoso - you've placed 30 orders but one goes wrong and you're never using them again - this sounds strange to me. What steps have you taken to get your goods or refund? How do you know the delivery hasn't been stopped at customs?

    Anyway I'm not saying there's no issues but it's also very easy to be negative on a forum.

    I made my first international fragrance purchase last month (02/07) and chose the FragranceNet to try.

    I'm still waiting for the order arrives. But I guess it's not a problem with FragranceNet but with the mail or customs here, because a week after this order, I bought some samples of a fellow basenoter and it also did not arrived yet.

    I'll post here if any of the orders arrive.

    Default Fragrancenet Buying UNBOXED Items Help ?

    Hey guy's I'm new to Fragrancenet, I wanted to purchase Chanel Allure Homme Sport, so I founded one really cheap for around $70 dollars since I'm from Australia it's expensive. I was just wondering if it's UNBOXED what package will it come in ? What does the UNBOX term mean, I'm curious so I just don't get ripped of and get a fake that's all.
    Cheers.

    Yeah, I bought an unboxed discontinued Hermès from them, and it arrived in bubble wrap and a plastic bag. It was full, and as far as I can tell, authentic.

    Lack of a box isn't the kiss of death on authenticity - it's actually a common thing in the discount world. Online discounters simply don't like to sell things in really bashed-up, taped-together, and torn boxes. I'm sure that on average, buyers receiving such boxes respond very negatively, and likely have a high rate of return and a low rate of follow-up business. (Think about when you see such boxes in places like TJ Maxx. Personally, I avoid them like the plague.) Boxes get trashed in stores before clearance, during returns, etc., or when stores turn regular stock into ad hoc testers. The discounters generally drop the price a bit for lack of a box (or a bad box which gets removed), and you can benefit. But boxless is also very common among eBay fakes, so watch out when you buy there. When I see $60 boxless Creeds, I laugh even harder than when they have a box.

    It depends on the frag. They low-price their slow sellers, off-brands, and unboxed, but they tend to give much less of a discount for popular expensive stuff, high-demand discontinued, etc. Occasionally they low-price some really great, expensive frags, and you can get nice savings, but I've seen those sell out quickly, too. In general, I think they price low enough to move stuff fast.

    How much of a price difference are you seeing? Be sure that you're comparing apples to apples - same size, concentration, and box state. The difference is generally minimal, but you will find occasions where fragrancenet really comes through with a surprisingly low price on something - it seems kind of random to me.

    in this case, unboxed does not mean its a tester bottle. It means the box was badly damaged, and they remove the bottle from the box.

    I agree with Red on this. Often banged boxes are discarded and the intact bottles are sold at discount.

    Testers are also the same in a way. They come in plain cardboard boxes and do not often come with the caps. Still the authentic juice, just no box.

    Finally, you can buy fragrance refills without the fancy canister/holder. Sometimes these come with a cap, sometimes not. (I have seen this for Guerlains and Boucherons.)

    I have had no problem with fakes from Fragrancenet and have bought from them many times.

    They also have a 15% discount when you type "basenotes" in the coupon box at checkout.

    Crazy New Bottle Of Creed GIT from FragranceNet.com Question Number #567!!

    Seriously help though.

    1.The arabic sticker on the box and bottle is new to me.

    2.The Ingredients etched on bottle with the serial number is really strange to me!

    3. The Box doesnt have all the fancy gold trim on front like my 2009 box.





    Maybe that little sticker means for sale middle eastern countries only??
    and never saw Toliet Water PGS on the sticker? anyone know what PGS that means?



    Is there any explaination or has anyone seen these markings on boxes from Saks Or Neimans maybe even a creed boutique..

    I have bought two bottles of creed One GIT and One Erolfa from Saks and Two from fragrancenet.com
    and this first time i am seeing these things

    I've never dealt with Fragrancenet before, I would assume that they don't sell bunk frags, but, you never know. Maybe you should get in touch with them and see if they will let you return it, or at least let you exchange it for another fragrance (one that is less likely to be counterfeited). Perhaps they didn't even know they could be selling a fake--- I'm sure they don't want to get a reputation for selling fakes.

    I Doubt it's fake I was thinking of returning it because If want to trade or sell it down the road the buyer will certainly think it is fake..
    I paid $175.00 from fragrancenet with the 15% off code.
    I was thinking a knowledgeable person on here would clear it up for me.
    I never saw this before maybe its due to arabic countries needing the ingredients On the bottle itself...?...
    Strange though. Never heard of the creeds millesimal being toliet water PGS
    Thanks in advance if anyone has any info.

    The lot number indicates a 2010 production year. So things may smell different from your old one based on the infamous Creed Batch Variability (CBV). They might have made modifications to their bottle labeling for other countries as well in the more recent years.

    Unless it smells drastically different (it probably is weaker due to it being fresher juice), then I wouldn't worry about it.

    Also check out this thread, somebody has your same lot: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread...=209892&page=5

    Odd that one of the member's lot numbers was A3219F91, since 19 is the location on the number that tells of production year and doesn't make sense(according to a pretty consistent theory here on basenotes..find the thread). Given that walgreens uses fragrancenet (I believe) to get their fragrances, and that weird lot number A3219F91, I'm not sure how legit their stuff is.

    I don't know, just use your nose.

    FragranceNet would never sell fake fragrances, period. They are a major fragrance seller and it would not make sense for them to jeopardize their reputation. Since this is the first time I've seen the bottle and package like yours, I'd guess that it was initially targeted for Middle East distribution and the sticker labels might help the product conform to consumer/ governmental laws. FragranceNet, most likely, purchases inventory from vendors worldwide, including the Middle Eastern Creed distributor. That's the grey market. BTW, it's my belief that mass grey market wholesalers and front-line retailers all pay about the same price for Creed fragrances. The big difference is in the selling price. Front line retailers have multiple times the overhead that online sellers do. That's what I think anyway. ICBW.

    I guess that the major annoyance is the etching on the glass with toliet water pgs and ingredients as well as serial number because if I sell or trade it a newbie might think it's fake. Also the box has no gold trimming on the front which looks very different from any creed box I have seen

    It is the real deal. My bottle ordered from Walgreens (fulfilled by fragrancenet) also had less gold on the box and an arabic sticker on the bottom. Fragrancenet sells many gray market products meaning they were packaged and intended for overseas markets. It would appear that the wholesale prices are cheaper that way as the frag store in my local mall told me they get all of their frags from Dubai and Bahrain. The savings must be good enough to go through all of that hassle rather than through a US distributer. Fragrancenet is also not an official channel per Creed but it wouldnt stop me from buying from them again.

    The difference in smell can be accounted for by the variance that exists from batch to batch and year to year. In some batches the lavander is amped up more, in others...etc. I very much like my GIT bottle but this milliseme hocus pocus to me just excuses poor quality control.

    If you like the iteration contained in your bottle, wear it proudly and in good health. Its the real deal.

    what was the theory behind that specific number? i've heard people say you can tell the production year through the lot number but no one has been able to back it up with a reliable source. i think it would benefit this community a lot if we can confirm this but until then people shouldn't make such claims.

    can you cite one reliable source that actually confirms that specific number as the production year of that bottle? again this is not a personal attack but i consider basenotes a reliable source of information and without solid evidence your claims are just speculation.

    that thread was based on speculation and is still yet to be verified. i don't think we will ever solve this until creed issues a personal statement on bottle production year verification, which will probably never happen. so until then believe what you want to believe.

    It's also consistent with bottle design changes. So the theory is likely correct.

    Whether it works for TESTERS a few years back is questionable. UNLESS I really do have a 2001 Green Irish Tweed tester (my tester actually has TESTEUR etched on the back..since I haven't seen that in years, it's probably really old!). Then again, IT IS SUPER POTENT. A decade of aging could lead to that. Still smells amazing. So all you worry freaks about spoiling creeds need to relax! (as long as the bottle hasn't been sprayed yet). Let me tell you, any recent batch is child's play compared to my bottle of GIT.

    i will wait till next year 2012 and if i can still afford a bottle of new creed
    if the bottle has A3112F01
    then the code since 2008 has been 08,09,10,11 for the last four years I will be satisfied.
    I have noticed with my bottles since 2008 that the first letter and the first 2 numbers are for the fragrance(GIT,Erolfa and etc..)

    The second two digits are the Year

    and the last letter and two numbers are the Lot.

    the year and lot are the only thing that changes.

    Exactly.

    I just bought a bottle of Green Valley from the Creed Boutique (I got the last one!) and there's an 06 in the middle of the lot number. At the end is an 02. It smells fresh, although I can tell it's not brand new by the brevity of the top notes.

    Earlier I made the mistake of buying Green Valley from a mall vendor. It had no lot number and smelled like garbage, but in comparison to the new bottle it's definitely genuine Green Valley - just really old and spoiled. My guess is the mall bottle is closer to ten/eleven years old and wasn't kept well. Since it has no lot number, I have no clue how old it is. But my new bottle has the four numbers mentioned above. If it was from 2002, it would probably smell crappy, but if it's from 2006, it should still smell good. It makes sense to me to interpret the middle number as the year of bottling and the last number as the general lot ID.

    I envy you.

    My new bottle of GIT has an 11 in the middle of the 8 lot number. This is consistent with the theory of the thread linked above. I had a GIT from 2001 before, and it smelled stronger and had more nuanced middle notes than this new one. Again, consistent with the thread's interpretation. My bottle is brand new.

    Thanks fletch31 did you buy from fragrancenet.com? i think the ingredients being etched on the back of the bottle must be a certain country's laws only.

    I purchased from walgreens but it was fulfilled by fragrancenet because they fulfill most of walgreen's fragrance orders. It was cheaper at walgreens at the time too. Mine also had the arabic sticker on the bottom (Still does)and the box had less gold on it as well. If you see my earlier post in this thread I mention that fragrancenet sells grey market fragrances meaning they are indeed packaged and marketed to other countries outside the US. All their stuff is legit though
