    Default Anyone have experience with lilydirect.com?

    Hi,

    I know I'm new to this forum but I do read up on all of the post. I know that beautyencounter, fragrancenet, lucky scent, and many other sites are reliable but I ran across www.lilydirect.com and they have very good prices. I just want to make sure that they are a legitimate site before I make my purchase.

    Yes I will tell you its for REAL...This email confirms that your order was received at Lily Direct. You will receive an additional email once your order is shipped. Contact us if you have any questions about your order.
    Up there is to confirm my order I made on Thursday and the shipping says 3days, and I got it on Saturday afternoon, which was so amazing....I had to leave them a voice msg saying Thank you. So feel free to make you order.(Thank you and we do appreciate the help. I was just wondering, where did you see that review from? I mean from which site was someone asking about lily direct? As you know we are a new start up company and not many have heard from us that's why they are skeptical to make a purchase and hopefully some of our customer can let the perfume community know that we are selling 100% authentic perfume and colognes.

    Thanks,
    John )

    So I recived my 75ml GIT from lilydirect. I am not satisfied at this point. It was a tester and the box and bottle lot no match. Its a C3211X01 batch. The opening is alcohol followed by the greenish scent. However it is way to weak for any GIT that I am familar with. I have only had it on a few mins so I cant tell you what the longevity is like. But I can say it feels diluted. Is this typical of this batch? More than likely it is going back and I will try elsewhere.

    What are you thoughts on the bottle and lot no. I can say that the sticket on front is felt and the sprayer is typical of Creed...but the juicr is WEAK!!!!

    THANKS

    Do you think its legit? Is it a fake or just bad juice? If not lilydirect would you recommend fragrancenet or beautyencounter?

    Thanks

    I'm actually not sure if it is legit or not as I only have one Creed and haven't been a big fan of their products. I've shopped with both Fragrancenet and beautyencounter before and I have yet to be disappointed by either. But at the same time I haven't ordered any Creeds from them so I don't think I'm of much help.

    I see nothing to be concerned about from the pictures. Was it a brand new bottle? Did it take a few priming sprays before the juice came out?

    I've heard that GIT gets better after spraying, but who knows...

    Had you ever smelled GIT, or do you have any reference to go by to determine if it's genuine?

    If you think it's defective somehow, send it back.

    I like Fragrancenet a lot, but don't think they will be as low as you paid for that bottle.

    Sorry this may be so much later, but was looking at buying from lily direct and thought first to google. Sure enough, same old thing. It's the latest gimmick. I bought 3 bottles of perfume from same guy on ebay, never imagining how evil people can be. What they do is leave the real cologne in the tube so first few sprays are the real thing, then the rest is all watered down. You try it so think it's okay, then after you wear a few times, you suddenly realize that the scent last about 1/2 second. If I didn't know the perfume I bought, one reason is that it last all day and lingers. So, I noticed it immediately. These people are horrible. The ebay people returned my money, but many people go unknowing if they never bought the perfume from an authentic seller or department store.

    Does anyone know a legitimate website that has good prices.

    Sorry for your bad experience. What about Fragrancenet and FragranceX? Have you tried those?

    I've now ordered three fragrances from Lilydirect in two separate orders. Creed VIW tester, DHI (5oz), and Varvatos Vintage tester. My only issue with the two orders I placed was the packing for the second order which included DHI and the Varvatos. The DHI was fine but the tester box for the Varvatos was mashed up. Otherwise, I think they're safe to order from based on those two experiences (if that's of any help to others).
