    Default Re: FragranceNet.com raises Creed prices by $60+ overnight... WTF?

    How about the fact that Creed continue to raise their retail prices? Each new release seems to be more expensive, and numerous full range price hikes have come and gone. Maybe they can't source bottles as cheap as before, or maybe Creed is doing a better job at controlling distribution.

    I've been following their relentless price increase of Creeds too. I thought it could be because of the holiday season when their purchases multiply. It could well be the case of profit enhancement on increased volumes.

    I would definitely be reluctant on buying 4oz Creed bottles for usd 130. Has to be old or something, there has to be a trick somewhere imo. Maybe they want to get rid of old bottles or something, coz it's litteraly half the price of reputed sellers.

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.
    Hallo, fellow WVian! You can order GIT from Walgreens for cheapish. Until the 20th you can use the PERFUME code to knock off 20%, too.

    And they have a 10% off coupon on the front page.
    Parfum1 is legit, they're a company based in NYC. The generally have 15% off couples floating around at all times plus the occasional 20% off. I find they generally have good prices if not the best on many many frags. The only catch for me is that they sometimes charge for the shipping and I think they may charge taxes (at least when I order to ship to NYC) so the 15% basically cancels out. but I have ordered from them a few times and they are reputable.


    that Walgreens discount about is a solid deal, 4oz GIT for $120. not bad.

    Price increase might be due to Creed cracking down on unauthorized distribution channels, making the gray market bottles more difficult to procure. I mean, Creed must be hearing complaints from the "legit" resellers that discount online sites are cutting into their sales. All speculation, but you can imagine something like that going on.

    Ebay is definitely different. You know you buy it second hand. Was more refering to online stores, there has to be a catch if you can buy a creed for 30% (88 instead of 270) of its original price as marketed in places like neiman or creedboutique imo.

    It seems that they are reajusting a lot of prices in their site. I have already notice a fragrance that was significately incresed its price on their site from the day to the night. They have listed Vetiver frozen for 35 dollars and then the price raised to almost 50 dollars on the next day. The same happened to signoricci 2, which was 50 and then went to 80 dollars i think. So it seems that it`s a common practice of the store now.

    Take a look at the Coupons and Discounts Board for a few deals on Creed and others. For example Walgreens has a deal going through the 20th of November. (I calculate 4.0 oz GIT and 4.0 oz Original Vetiver @$120.00 after discount code). Free shipping over $25 purchase on most items also.

    I saw that Walgreens buy in another thread. Awesome deal w/ the 20% coupon. I was initially going to purchase GIT but decided to get MI instead because (as lame as it sounds) I'm trying to finish up my bottle of Cool Water first. Man I wish Walgreens sold MI, I would order one immediately if they did. Ah well, I may just go ahead and order GIT from them and ask for MI for Xmas.

    Default Re: My Horrible Fragrancenet experience

    I also recently ordered from FragranceNet and was quite pleased with the prices, as I find everything in Canada is more expensive... However, as others have mentioned, the packaging of the items leaves a lot to be desired. My YSL La nuit de l'homme is not even sealed, its box is a little beat up, and my JPG Le Male has a dent in the can.

    Oh well... I suppose I'll keep them, what do you think?

    I ordered from fragrancenet once a year ago, got my 2 items quickly and as described. But I haven't bought from them again. Bought my past few colognes on ebay with great prices, quick shipping, solid packaging, and sealed products!

    Default Re: Serge Lutens from Fragrancenet?

    I must admit, I will buy any fragrance cheap or expensive if I like it...I'm not a snob it that sense, however, checking out the prices on Fragrancenet, they are NOT that much cheaper than Aedes or Luckyscent; so to put my mind at ease and to absolutely assure myself that I am not getting a counterfeit product, I will buy from these niche boutiques especially at prices >$100 or more. This idea also includes other Haute-Couture fragrances such as Creed, Bond #9 New York, Frederick Malle, etc....as for "regular" brands/lines, such as Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, I will look at these other sites.

    This is just my own reasoning and two cents worth. :-)

    Default Re: Serge Lutens from Fragrancenet?

    I absolutely love a bargain and getting a Lutens for less than $100 is really a wonderful thing. That said, I've at least 4 bottles of Lutens from Parfum1 and they all arrived in mint condition. I wouldn't be surprised if they are sourced directly from the distributor as DocmannCC suggests. I've also noticed that many of the online fragrance discount shops seem to be working with the same inventory.

    Well they are definitely much cheaper with the 15% discount code factored into the equation.

    Yeah, I got a sample of it as well. Seems like a knockoff of Ed Hardy Love and Luck, but not nearly as good.

    When returning an item they claim it takes 2 weeks after receiving it to refund you which is bull****, you should get refunded right away not after 2 weeks OR more, who know?!

    Not the best place to order from because customer service is very important to me and to many online shoppers... but they're working hard on becoming the WORST place to shop for fragrance online I guess!
    I just ordered Bleu De Chanel from them and all they offered was unboxed. They ended up taping the bottle inside a half torn cardboard box. Thankfully, it arrived in great condition. My only complaint was shipping was a little slow, but it was free...

    FragranceNet: Ordered two bottles (both boxed) on Thursday 9 December with immediate email confirmation; email advice that it was shipped on Monday 13 December; item delivered (to Australia) on Friday 31 December. Packed in a box too big for purpose, lots of brown paper as 'packing', a sample of 'Exceptional' and a complementary finger nail block. Everything arrived in one piece, the box was a little worse for wear and tear.

    Default Creed product purchase from fragrancenet experience...Please help

    Ok, so as I posted earlier, I made my first purchase of a full bottle of niche fragrance (Creed GIT) from fragrancenet. Someone is telling me about their experience with Creed fragrance from fragrancenet. Stale and does not smell like the real thing. Anyone else experience this? thanks for your help.
