    No, no, no.. they've imporoved. I was so lucky to receive TWO small balls of brown papers!! The rest stayed the same lol .........

    From memory the whole process took 9 working days, I was expecting it to arrive 2 to 3 weeks later so 9 days was a good surprise.

    2 nights ago I made 2 orders: 3 items from FragranceNet, and 3 items from ScentedMonkey. SM shipped the next day, whereas FN still hasn't shipped yet. I have ordered from ScentedMonkey numerous times and they have been PERFECT every time. FN, if nothing else, is a little slow.

    Default My Horrible Fragrancenet experience

    Hey guys,

    Thought I should post my experience just as a forewarning, and perhaps so anyone else can chime in if they had any simmilar situations. I understand that people have had a few good experiences with them so its too bad that they dropped the ball on mine

    Sept 29 - Made my order
    Sept 30th - Inqired by E-mail if there was any price protection as I found the items cheaper on Parfum1, and if not if I could cancel the order. Tried to this by phone but no pickup at Fragrancenet
    Sept 30 - Standard E-mail from Fragrancenet stating that they recieved the order and its being processed.
    Oct 1 - Standard E-mail stating It is in the warehouse and they will let me know when it ships.
    Oct 11 - E-mail from Fragrancenet stating that they recieved my request to Cancel the order and that it has been cancelled (Odd it took them 11 days to tell me that they cancel the order, but I was ok with this, and made an order with Parfum1 immediately after)
    Oct 13 - E-mail from Fragrancenet stating that it has been shipped from their warehouse (WTF?, I respond back immediately asking if it was a mistake as I was told that it was cancelled, no answer, Email again on the 14th no answer, Email again on the 15th no answer)
    Oct 18 - Recieve e-mail from fragrance net stating that per my request the order was cancelled
    Oct 19 - Recieve my parcel from Fragrancenet (WTF)
    Oct 20 - Inform that I recieved it, no response to e-mail to date
    Oct 20 - Call Fragrancenet and spoke to an extremely rude CSR they stated that I had two orders for the same thing (False, I have checked my email thoughly and only have one order number), and that I could return them back at my cost - No way am I going to spend my money for their mistake


    Luckily they wern't high value items and I should be able to sell them at the price I paid Body Kouros and Rochas Man at $35 each. Their delay in responding to messages, messups with their Ordering department and Warehouse means this company will never get my money again.

    Poor experience, and I will be going to Parfum1 for most of my future cologne purchases (didn't get dinged on Duties either)

    Never ever email them, only communicate by phone no matter how annoying the reps are. They do not respond to emails.

    Hope I don't sound too "preachy" but: these discounters are able to offer the prices they do because they don't have to pay many people, among other things. I've ordered from them at least 20 times and never had a bad experience, but I don't expect customer service, any more than I would at a TJ Maxx or a Dollar Store. I did have a question when an order seemed to take too long recently, and called, and it was answered very politely and efficiently. Considering the lousy state of "customer service" in the perfume departments of, oh, just about any department store (ignorant, aggressive SA's who know nothing about their product) it is worth it to me to do my research online and then order from a discounter, also online. I refuse to pay retail markup for fragrance, and FN is my first go-to when looking for a full bottle. They've never disappointed me.

    Hey guys,

    Im thinking in get a Pure Malt from fragrancenet.

    New 68 and unboxed 61 bucks

    If the unboxed can be used for some reason i will buy a new, if not, never sprayed, i will get the unboxed one.

    Get the new, there was a whole fiasco when fragrancenet first started re-offering pure malt...alot of people had open boxes with missing juice

    Default Re: Unboxed Pure Malt from Fragrancenet are used?

    a bunch of people also returned theirs so unbox is probably used.

    Default Re: Unboxed Pure Malt from Fragrancenet are used?

    For the pittance of difference in price might as well go with the new and get it new. You'll have the box and no worries about how 'used' it was or wasn't.

    I don't have first-hand experience with them but we had many posts about items from FN that had bad juice, apparently due to bad storage, along with damaged boxes, etc. Based on those, I personally would shop elsewhere even if it means I pay a little more.

    Default Re: Unboxed Pure Malt from Fragrancenet are used?

    I got mine from there; was in a opened box with no seal on it but the bottle had never been used, took like 3 sprays to actually get the juice to spray

    There is a work around that. Turning the bottle upside down so there is no juice in contact with the long plastic tube attached to the atomizer and spray. That way the tube is empty and might seem that it is new and never sprayed.

    I also bought a bottle of pure malt from fragrancenet, which was open and some juice seemed to be missing. I suggest getting a new one.

    In what condition did the box come in? Was it still covered in cellophane? The PM I ordered from fragrancenet was scratched and the box a bit crumbled.

    Sorry I missed this earlier, I would've told you to go through TM directly or see if Nordstrom ships there because the PM bottles from Fragrancenet are skechy. At least you got a boxed one, the unboxed one that I got was used, skunked, and terrible. The 2 dollar discount for the apparently new one isn't worth it for the hassle, though it's nice to see at least they're specifying that it's unboxed now.

    Angry FragranceNet.com raises Creed prices by $60+ overnight... WTF?

    I went to order a 4oz bottle of Millesime Imperial tonight, and lo and behold, the price jumped from about $140 to almost $200. Green Irish Tweed went from $149 to almost $210. I had just checked these prices a couple of days ago. Looks like they did this all across the board. Not sure about other brands, but Creeds definitely went up by about $50 ~ $60 per bottle. I'd ask why, but I already know the answer... holidays are coming up, lots more buyers, jack up the prices accordingly. Nice, real nice. Needless to say I'm going to keep shopping around.

    Just a heads up, and curious if anyone else notices other brands getting overnight price increases.

    Well, you can't really give them crap for that. That's how a good business operates. Personally I'd simply avoid Fragrancenet, their attempts to scam you to sign up to some of their sponsor websites after you checkout seals the deal for me.

    I've been scouting fragrancenet prices on MI for a while, went from 144 to 177 to 192 to 199 ish. When I asked them why they said they have fresh 2010 stock which might be true but the last MI i got from them on oct 20 ish (at the 144 price tag) was complete garbage missing the top notes.

    Not sure you got it right a few days ago to be honest, usually Creed 4oz are way more than 140, pretty much everywhere online the 140 tag price refers to 1 oz bottle. For comparison, a 4oz GIT flacon is priced at 270 $ on creedboutique and neiman marcus and I doubt it was half the price at fragrancenet. 210 is still a decent price actually compared to that.
    Current top 10 in no particular order : Malle - Carnal Flower (pre 2008) ; Montale - Black Aoud ; Bond #9 - Silver Factory ; Tauer - L'air du désert marocain ; C&Z - No 88 ; Francis K. - APOM ; Creed - Aventus ; Amouage - Epic ; Profumum - Dulcis In Fundo ; Amouage - Opus V

    Green Irish Tweed was $149 just a few days ago. I almost bought one with the BASENOTES 15% coupon, but decided against it at the last second. And as ctran019 stated in this thread, he purchased MI for $144 less than a month ago. With the BASENOTES code, MI would have came to $123 for the 4oz bottle.

    they also raised hermes, and many others of the more costly ones. this happened sometime this last week... have you read the reviews on their website below the photo of each scent?.... 95%-100% 'thumbs excitedly up'..... especially for that thing there are not ashamed of sending everybody as a free sample. the hilarious thing is that the bottle looks like malle.... and there is a reviewer there stating he has stocked up himself with 3-4 bottles, just to make sure he would not run short on it.....

    parfum1 has about 2-3 of the gold bottles all of which are authentic, but these gold bottles are quite old so who knows if the top notes even exist as well.

    And roc xel I know for sure 4oz was 144 ~ as payed 122 with coupon and I still have the confirmation email from them. Sadly I received a garbage version of Millesime imperial.
