    Default Getting annoyed at Escentual now

    They used to and still have on some lines at least 10% of the RRP. But now look at Amouage, Juliette Has A Gun and other niche fragrances, they are priced similar to Harrods / Selfridges / Harvey Nichols.

    Is it just me or are they forgetting they are an online only?

    I find that more and more online retailers are shrinking or eliminating their discounts on certain brands.

    bgoc, escentual will have an agreement with their suppliers where they stick to the rrp, like most retailers. if they don't, the supplier can stop selling to them. and you wouldn't really use niche lines as your loss leaders, because they are likely to sell less anyways.

    Gblue is right

    These are luxury items and in this bad economy business have to do what they have to do to get by.

    I have twenty years worth of mid to high end fragrence for around a thousand dollars. I consider that to be a very good price and think on the whole fragrance is very reasonable.

    I love Escentual, but they have never been a discount site. They will have 15% off certain brands for a set period, currently it is Serge Lutens. But unless a sale everything is retail price. They don't buy their stock from the grey market so abide by the prices set for them.

    The Guerlain make up is cheaper than buying from a store I know, I bought Turandot Ombre 4 Couleur the other week and it was 10% cheaper.

    I order lunchtime and it arrives next day.
