    Default fragrancebuy.ca - great site in Canada

    Hi all,

    I thought I would share a positive experience with a Canadian fragrance website.

    I ordered 2 bottles of Bvlgari Black, a bottle of YSL Rive Gauche and a bottle of YSL Body Kouros from fragrancebuy.ca on July 1st.
    I got an automated order confirmation right after I made the purchase.

    Early morning of July 2nd I got a shipping confirmation email and got my shipment in the mail yesterday, July 3rd.
    Granted they are in Scarborough and I am in Ottawa but that was really fast.

    All bottles are legit, in the original boxes and original wrapping.
    There prices are pretty good and the have a fair amount of discontinued frags.

    I'll be ordering from them again for sure.

    Hey - thanks for this. I checked them out. They got some good prices and some niche stuff including Creed, Costume National, and Comme des Garcons. I just sent them an email about the lot numbers for their Creed products and awaiting to hear back.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Well, a guy got back to me within an hour on a Sunday which supposedly isn't a work day so I'm impressed with a few photos. The lot number of their Creed Green Irish Tweed is A3213T01 which is a really great batch according to a few online reviews. Placed my order. There's one left in case anyone was interested.

    These folks at fragrancebuy.ca are great. I've place 2 orders with them, Prompt shipping and questions asked and answered pronto.
    Prices are very good with a good selection.

    I've dealt with them a few times now, very good.

    Just finished my third order with them and it's been exceptional every time. Their Creeds are authentic and fresh batches. The Imperial I bought lasts for ages compared to the mere few hours I used to get from my older bottle.

    I also noticed recently they started to carry a few Bond No. 9 scents including New Haarlem.

    Just purchased a few cheapies from them as I wanted to take advantage of their 1 year anniversary sale!

    They also had a promotion going where if you purchased five items or more you were entitled to free shipping. I placed my order and the next day had to take one of the bottles off. They did so without a fuss and even let me keep my free shipping! Not only that but I received my fragrances within the same business week!

    Very impressed, will certainly be purchasing more products from them.

    Good to hear.
    Their customer service is amazing and I've bought from them about 10 times now.
    Everything is legit and well packaged.

    When buying any fragrance I look to them first every time.
    A gem here in Canada for sure.

    I just put in an order with them for several designer staples, as well as their last 120ml bottle of Creed Millesime Imperial. (batch code 83314D01) Seems like great prices in CDN $ for Creed, if you can catch them with it in stock. I'll report back when they arrive!

    - - - Updated - - -

    P.S. As for prompt service. They actually answered my email on a Sunday about the Creed batch version I was interested in.

    Agree - excellent customer service & great prices within Canada (can't beat Fragrancenet though on prices alone, but their shipping has gone too steep now).

    You buy 5 & you'll get free shipping too...

    I used to buy from Fragrancenet but since their shipping fees went crazy, I start looking to other discounters.
    I bought few times from fragrancebuy.ca and I was positively impressed by their customer service (Gary gave prompt answer to all my questions), fast shipping and fragrances I bought were authentic and in pristine condition. Sadly their niche selection is rather restraint.

    Based on the good reviews here I ordered some Chant d'Arômes from this site, the refill for the metal edt canister. Will report on developments.

    Editing to say it's funny--the refill is 93ml and I just noticed this is my 93rd post.

    Received my order today. Overall I'm pretty impressed with these guys. The bottle of Mugler cologne that was in the shipment seemed to leak a little in its box, but this was clearly a manufacturers issue because it was sealed. Seems the little splash cap was not 100% closed. Just a few drops, not really a big deal.

    The Creed Millesime Imperial looks to be legit from what I can tell. The Lot is actually S3314D01 not 83314D01. On the box sticker, the leading S definitely looks like an 8 with the fine print and font they use, but under a magnifying glass I can see how it's an S. The bottle itself is clearly an S. I did a spray test, what an intoxicating scent. Beautiful fresh citrus/melon/salt with a splash of something manly underneath. I can't stop sniffing the paper lol.

    I also picked up a YSL l'homme 100ml gift set, D&G the one, and a Perry Ellis red 360 just to see what it's like on the cheap.

    to these guys!

    Me too, I become a regular buyer for them. I am waiting for their next "bonus coupon" offer.

    Order made Friday morning, June 19th, arrived Monday morning, June 22nd, 9:20 a.m., in good order. Colour me impressed.

    Yes, the bonus coupons are nice. They're especially nice if they arrive at a time when you're ready to be in buying mode.

    What is the bonus coupons? Is it from the mail from fragrance buy?

    If you are on their mailing list, if they have a special they send a notice. I once got a coupon for a small discount; I think it was $5.00 off. At the time I did not need anything, though.

    Hmmm...I didn't receive one. Maybe they only send them to a percentage of subscribers at a time. No problem, though, because I don't need anything more right now.

    I noticed the three items I have bought were sold out right afterward, which leads me to believe they may only get very small numbers or even one only of a particular fragrance at a time from their various sources. As two of the items I bought were vintage, that would not be surprising.

    They do have a good selection, but it does seem like they choose who to send the 7% coupon to at times. Once I placed a high value order, and then right the next day they would send a 7% coupon + free shipping to other customers while I was being charged shipping on my $600 order (and they never sent a sales email with coupon to me afterwards). It's a really strange practice (very unethical). They completely take their customers for granted sometimes, and underestimate some of their customer base. But nonetheless, I still do recommend this company for their sheer selection and generally good prices, but in terms of customer service there are many better companies out there.

    It might be worthwhile speaking to them about it. Maybe they could give you a deal on such a large order. I have never understood their rationale behind charging no postage by number of items rather than by amount spent like other places. But I have found their service and prices good on the few orders I have made.

    Actually I did address with them about the 5 bottles free shipping policy, I stated that I could buy 5 cheapies totally to $150 and get free shipping while I could get 2 bottles worth $500 without free shipping, it just doesn't make sense. They just gave me some random excuse lol. They did offer me a $9 gift car though. either way it wasn't a big deal as shipping was just $9. Speaking of which they now have a few Roja Dove in stock (along with bunch of other stuff), I picked up Danger Pour Homme Parfum, that's $400 on its own, so it seems like a large order, but that's what one bottle of Roja can do to you lol. $400 is actually not bad.

    But I'm just not a fan that it seems they don't treat all their customers equally, I've ordered numerous times from them, often large orders, yet they exclude me from these customer appreciation emails with 7% coupons + shipping. It almost feels like they know I would spend the money anyway, even without the coupon I would put in a large order so they could make some extra money, I would be lying if I say i'm not offended, I obviously feel they take me completely for granted. My money is hard-earned just like everybody else. Based on this kind of ethic i'd rather take my business elsewhere, even if it means spending retail for a bottle of Roja.

    Yes, that policy is screwy. I don't even see how it's to their advantage to pay the postage on what is likely to be a heavier order. If you are on the mailing list to receive their promotional emails, it seems odd that you don't get sale messages. I get them every once in a while. Just got the same one yoshimi mentioned.
