    That's cool, as long as you aren't being charged for them.

    No, never a charge. I believe it's just a free 1 year subscription and then they stop. Of course, when I buy another fragrance, I get another magazine, so it never truly stops.

    So on Dec 2nd I had ordered some Aventus from fragrancenet, they took a week to process the order then told me it was shipping a few days ago or so. Well the shipping hasn't updated and its been in some fed ex surepost in Allentown Pa . its already the 14th and still nothing...the est delivery date is for the 20th btw and I PAID for fast delivery. Again slow shipping and slow order processing after PAYING for 3 day shipping.

    So on the 4th I order two more colognes and I get a email a few days after saying its in "the warehouse" well on the 9th I get a email saying that one of my orders is out of stock and that I will be refunded, and that my other cologne will still ship out. Again no updates and its the 14th...and still NO REFUND! I doubt that I will even get the other cologne that was shipped anytime soon being that the tracking on this one says est date the 27th now. Makes me mad that it says in stock when I ordered too!

    IM SICK OF THE BS FROM FRAGRANCENET! For now on im buying in store only lol man oh man also the emails ive sent get nowhere just automated bs. Even after calling on my refund they simply say it takes days before it gets refunded...but its been a week.
    that's why I like to shop in the shops...you can save money on the net..but all the hassle how much does it cost???

    Sorry to hear that. They do have some very nice prices. I've only used them a couple of times in the last 10 years or so. I usually go to Macy's.

    Yes, sometimes, within reason, you can even return scents that have been used. At least at one time you could do this. Years ago, I bought perfume and my boyfriend hated it. I also got a headache when wearing it. I took it back the next day or so and exchanged it. This was at Dillard's.

    I get Details magazine and my wife gets Cosmo, compliments of FragranceNet. We actually read them, so it doesn't bother me one bit.

    I have some friends in various online vendor industries, and these "free magazine" subscriptions are essentially companies like FragranceNet selling your information to the publishers. The magazines make their real money based on their subscription numbers, so they're happy to pay an online vendor a few bucks to get a new address to a confirmed purchaser of certain goods. Been happening for some time.

    Ive ordered a number of times from fragrancenet without any issues. Around the time the OP ordered Aventus I believe there was a major run on it since Walgreens (whom I believe is supplied by Fragancenet) had a sale on some of the Creed line. This may have been part of the delay IMO...

    Walgreens sells Creed ? Are you joking? I'm in the Midwest and it's been impossible for me to sample this "amazing Aventus".

    Actually bought a Creed from Walgreens once, a year or so back that I believe was fulfilled by Fragrancenet. The price was
    very cheap if I recall.

    really wild, What part of the country? Major metro areas, I suppose.
    I went to Von Maur. They had never heard of Aventus. Then I realized it was a Creed. Von Maur and Dillard's is all we have here. It's pathetic.

    Buy from Amazon, they have a great selection, prices are very competitive and they deliver in two days anywhere in the country for free if you sign as a "prime" user.

    The slow shipping was probably just because it was before Christmas. Ive ordered from them 4 times in the last couple of months and had no issues.

    I am an Amazon Prime subscriber. Every fragrance page I have looked at on Amazon has included the following exception (or similar language):

    Special Shipping Information: This item is non-returnable and is not available for 2-day shipping due to additional shipping requirements.

    Seems that Amazon only ships fragrances by ground per the rules but other companies that sell through amazon send it regular first class or priority USPS.

    I noticed, while searching for Creed M.I., that it's $17 cheaper on eBay through FragranceNet than it is on their website. For the same 120ml size.

    Wonder why?

    I generally have good luck with FragranceNet. I have noticed that they seem to be averse to answering their phone, but they do answer my emails. All in all, not bad.

    How unfortunate that you find yourself in need of frequent communication with this company. It sounds as if things often get screwed up.

    Use the 21% coupon available for the site and it will probably be cheaper there.
