    Default Cosmetic Now

    Hello everybody, I find this page online based in Hong Kong, with a large line up of fragances, with fair prices on some lines, just wonder if any one has purchase something from them, are they legit, I mean they carry some niche names, just to be sure that they are not counterfeit, I got my eyes in some Evody fragances and the price are good, any info about it very much appreciated, Thanks to all.

    They seem to have a US address also, but haven't personally shopped with them. A note about the Evody fragrances since I see you are interested. The ones with the white labels are the original bottles. They have since changed all their packaging with the new smoky black and brown bottles. Great scents by the way IMO.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    They’re fine. I’ve used them several times. One item took a month to reach me however, so be patient.


    Mods may want to move this thread to the “Online Shopping” forum.

    My experience , so far , with Cosmetics Now.

    Cosmetics Now ,
    Ordered Fahrenheit Parfum , $116 on December 29th 2019.
    Tracking History
    Picked Up by Shipping Partner, USPS Awaiting Item
    WHITTIER,CA 90601 January 7th 2020.
    Today is January 11th 2020.
    No package delivered yet.

    A real time comparison

    I also ordered a bottle of Fahrenheit Parfum for $86 , a tester from
    Fragrancenet
    Order placed on January 06th 2020 .
    Packaged already received by me on January 11th 2020.
    Batch code 9C01 . It's the 2019 .

    So my take would be, if your buying for a certain event , birthdays, holidays etc,
    and you need it by in time for that event , upgrade the shipping if your buying from Cosmetic Now.

    I'll get back to this thread when my package from Cosmetics Now is delivered.

    Yeah, as I mentioned above, they are very slow. I ordered a bottle of Pure Havane which took at least a month to get to me, and it may have even been more like 6 weeks. I basically had forgotten that I ordered it by the time it arrived. It was a great deal--$35 for a new bottle--and everything checked out in the end, but super slow.

    I agree with you--they're not the best place to go if you're looking to get a gift for someone or something like that (unless you're way ahead of time...at least by two months). But if you have the time and are just adding a back up bottle or nothing that's urgent, they're okay.

    The order seems to be with their shipping partner.
    WHITTIER, CA 90601. STEP FORWARD FREIGHT SERVICE (NEW)
    I have Informed Delivery by USPS, that's how I know the shipper.
    Seems to be exactly what you've suggested.
    Extremely slow shipping time.
    I read a number of the reviews. The negative , low scores are because of shipping time.
    Here's one of the review links .

    Well, I get back to ya when I get the package.

    Glad to hear everything worked out! They're an odd company as far as their shipping goes, but they occasionally have some really good deals.

    I'm currently waiting on an order with a different company which also uses NEWGISTICS as its shipping partner. I'm not sure how these companies work, but I imagine they transport goods from the company warehouse to various Newgistics hubs, where it then finally goes out through the USPS. Judging by the dates and times I believe that its driven by a truck until it finally gets picked up by the USPS. That would also explain the extended wait time.

    There wan't a lot of info about Cosmetics Now, Just your usual ratings.
    Some of the low scores people gave them was because of shipping.
    So your response will help fellow basenoters, as well as others , in any concerns they have.
    Thank you . You a great help and asset.
