but I automatically noticed it so I called their customer service. (in 10 reviews)

I don't get why a lot of people complain about fakes and other stuff on fragrancenet, I've been buying from them for a long time and the merchandise is always good, the colognes last some a few hours some all day but that depends on the cologne. I took a few colognes to the mall and they checked out just fine.
I think people who complain are either those that you don't really want their business to begin with anyways because they're the bitter ones who will complain about the water if it rains or complain about the heat if it's a sunny day, just whiners doing their stupid tantrums or it could be that department stores ask their employees to complain trying to create a bad reputation since they simply just can't compete or simply refuse to compete on the perfume market.
The only real complain if you want to look at it as a bad thing would be the time it takes for you to get your stuff, so to be safe, if you buy from them give it a two week window to receive your colognes, unfortunately, it takes a while to get them that's why I gave them 4 stars only.
It's weird that there are so many bad reviews I've bought from them twice I have like 8 perfumes from them and no fake perfumes here fast shipping too def not fake Ive had the perfumes I bought before and smell the same I also compared it to seohora and same thing I will be buying again too
I ordered 3 bottles of perfume..HALLOWEEN & 2 BOTTLES OF DOLCE BY DOLCE & GABBANA. I HAVE TO SAY I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE DELIVERY AND MY PRODUCT..IT TOOK EXACTLY A WEEK TO GET IT...After receiving it, I did read a lot of bad reviews so it made me wonder..but the next day I took it and compared it to the dept. Store product and wht do ya know... IT WAS REEAAAL!! The employee even said she has ordered from them b4 after I told her what I was doing..lol .. WITH THT BEING SAID ..I AM INDEED A REAL person tht bought from this company!! And was very PLEASED!! DON'T KNOW WHY SOOO many bad reviews!!♡☆♡☆
I ordered a bottle of Hermes Kelly Caleche on Feb 22 and received the order Feb 28. I had bought a bottle in Paris at the Hermes store, and still have it. The bottle I received from Fragrance Net smells the same, and came in a box, with Made in France on the bottom. If it's fake, they fooled me, but I don't think it is. After I placed my order on Feb 22, I read all the bad comments about this company and wished I hadn't ordered from them, but I got what I ordered and a little earlier than they said, even with bad weather up north. I don't work for them, nor do I have any family members who work for them. i would use them again. Not sure what happened in the other cases I've read about.
The discount claimed by this site isn't valid. I found the same items for less at Amazon. I placed an order and they never sent it or notified me. When I went back to check the site said 'more information needed'. I have never seen a site with worse custmer service. They have earned their bad reputation. Don't shop here.

My daughter order perfume for my birthday. It didn't seem like the real thing so I wanted to return it. I have called several times to return it, but am placed on hold. I have emailed, but no answer. Worst customer service ever!! Beware of this company!!!
Tip for consumers: Don't order from this company.Ask s about FragranceNet
Disappointing. I researched this company online before I bought 3.4 oz Hanae Mori for my Mom as a Christmas gift. I saw the numerous bad reviews, negative feedback, broken bottle complaints and such. I didn't listen, and I thought it couldn't happen to me, until I received a package with huge stains from perfume leakage. The FedEx delivery man said that denying the package was the best course of action, so that's what I did. No gift for Mom on Christmas Day. DON'T TAKE THE CHANCE, because the low price isn't worth the huge risk.
I saw this website advertised on TV so I thought I would check it out. I could not believe how cheap their stuff was. They claim the perfumes are real but they are not. I immediately knew the perfume I bought (pink sugar) was not real just by the packaging. I decided to smell it and realized it was fake. After discovering this, I decided to look online for reviews of the company and came across this and a bunch of other people saying their perfumes are fake as well. The company charges a 20% restocking fee which is ridiculous. How am I supposed to know if it's fake or real without smelling it?! I will not buy from them ever again.
Tip for consumers: Don't do it! They are fake perfumes!Ask Missy about FragranceNet
Sad.i can't believe I got fake stuff. I immediately knew the stuff was not authentic! I received it and within 10 minutes I was sending this junk back! I should have known better ! My fault for ordering this stuff !! Pay and get the good stuff ! My stupidity and they make it tough to send back!! Shut this place Down!! Sorry but true!!
Tip for consumers: Forget about it!!Ask Gene about FragranceNet
Order arrived just on time but i think the cologne leaked out the bottle a little but it came with chapstick coupons and a sample of another great cologne for my man! Was very satisfied
I had to give them a star for having the nerve to send this CRAP IMITATION period. I have ordered Fidji by Guy Laroche from fragrancenet.com. What a joke. Now they did not credit my card with the full refund. They have the nerve to charge a restocking fee for sending this TOILETTE WATER back to them. DO NOT ORDER FROM THEM!!!! IT IS A RIP OFF!!! I have worked in the Cosmetic business for years, including Chanel. I am never going to order from them again.
My first time to order from fragrancenet.The Clinique Happy I bought smells different from the one I bought in store..and you have to pay shipping fee when returning the item.
I have ordered men's colognes and women's perfume multiple times, and never had a problem. I find them cheaper than anyone else, and then service is great. They do offer a money back guarantee. I am a very satisfied customer from Fort Myers, Fl.
Delivery of my order was quick but I had doubts about the product right at the get go...I purchased Jean Patou 'Sublime' and Jean Patou 'Joy' eu de perfume. The 'Joy' smelt different to some I already had and the 'Sublime' smelt stale immediately. I'm trying to use the Joy quickly as I'm worried it might go off and the Sublime.....well I can see that one going in the bin.
Although the prices were better than say Myer or David Jones, in the future I will return to these stores to purchase (they generally have specials at Christmas), that way at least I know I am getting what I pay for. I've unsubscribed from Fragrance Net but they still keep sending me emails.
I agree with other rewires that fragrancenet sell fake counterfeit fragrances. if your review is negative they don't even post it. I ordered Creed Aventus & knew how good it is. First I ordered the sample to check. sample was fine so ordered the bigger size. To my utter disappointment that larger size was fake. I realized it as soon as I opened the packing.
but to my surprise they refunded me full amount with out even me starting a refund request. I just wrote the review in which I mentioned that I will ask for complete refund.
I finally got my shipment today... I order on 8/12/14 they sent delivery info to fedex on 8/14/14 but it was actually shipped on 8/16/14 and at first it said to expect delivery on 8/20/14 but I actually received it today which is 8/18/14 so I got my order sooner which I loved!! I got very excited when I received my order I was very pleased with the entire order!!! I order 5 perfum and all were great...I was a lil worried as I was reading the reviews but I gotta disagree with most of the ones that said not to order from this site!!!! MY FIRST TIME ORDERING AND WILL ORDER AGAIN HOPEFULLY WILL HAVE SAME EXPERIENCE.... YES THEY ARE LEGIT!!!!!!
These people shipped me expired suntan lotion. Order placed and received in June 2014. Lotion expired in October of 2011. They have no sense of quality control nor did they seem apologetic when contacted. DON'T buy from them
If you think its too good to be true it usually is and that is the case with fragrancenet.com. I've been wearing Viva La Juicy for years and i know the true product when i see it and what was poorly shipped to me was completely FAKE! I compared it with my old bottle and the emblems did not match (which the fake one actually fell off the bottle the second i opened it), The cap was much lighter and made of plastic not glass like the original. I received the box which was wrapped in plastic just like the department store so i thought it was legit at first but as soon as i carefully slid off the plastic the box reeked of rubbing alcohol and was soaking wet, and the bottle was almost half empty. Every time i moved the bottle it would leak. The smell is very close to original but will not last nearly as long, real Viva La Juicy will last for days on my clothes. Overall this website is a sad excuse for a business and i should of known better, however i am currently in the return process and I expect every penny returned to me or it will not be pretty. BBB has given it an a+ rating which is complete BS and i dont know how that is even possible. Save your money an buy the real thing people its worth it.
ordered a perfume for my mother but when it arrived the package didn't look the same as on the picture and it didn't smell really good. my mother didn't like it either. and it wasn't even that cheap.
This site sells FAKE perfumes under the guise of half price. The sad part is that it appears on Amazon.com and EBay as a legitimate perfumes retailer. I noticed that most international customers are being scammed by Fragrance net. I am in the USA and i also bought perfumes from them Calvin klein and Elie saab the perfumes smelled like alcohol and disappear in minutes. I got the sample from a Mall the difference is loke day and night. The sample from the mall is beautiful lasts all day. Fragrance net should be shut down. Please report them to Better Business Bureau for this. Disappointing. Don't let the prices fool you. Buy at a mall or a reputable retailers in your region.
I ordered 2 men's fragrances, Christmas 2013. My purchase was originally $61.90. On the right side of the order page was a notice "included with your qualifying FragranceNet purchase is a magazine subscription valued at $19.95. If you prefer not to receive a magazine & receive a rebate for its stated value, please print & return this form with a copy of your order,"..... blah, blah, blah." I sent all the required documentation in immediately. I should have received my rebate in 6-8 weeks, instead I received "Living" magazine. After multiple phone calls to FragranceNet.com, whom then gave me multiple other companies to contact for the rebate, I still have not received my rebate and no one can help me. Beware, of this scam. I also only received part of my cologne order because they ran out of stock on the other one.
I've never shopped at this site, but I am a cosmetology student and I know for a fact that you cannot get real (or good quality) Pravana, Matrix, BedHead...salon quality brands from anywhere except a salon or a salon professional store. You cannot buy it online or in a Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid...only a licensed cosmetologist can buy these.
I had absolutely no problems with shipping, I received my order within a week. The perfume is genuine and fresh. No complaints what so ever!
Never again! Read the myriad bad reviews posted and they all confirm my bad experience. This company took days to even bother processing the order. A week goes by and THEN my two orders were shipped. Two weeks later and they're still not here!
Other sites promise orders are shipped the same day received and you get them days later!
I've read too, too many conflicting reviews about fragrancenet, but based on fragantica threads I decided that it's mostly OK but I had my reservations. I ordered two mainstream fragrances (pretty common, on good discount) knowing that they could be older stock or store returns. I think that issues come with ordering niche or rare fragrances where people seem to think those are fakes or really old. It took them about a week to ship to me, granted I live closer to their warehouse than other parts of the countries. International orders seem to have the worst reviews but the fragrances I received were full, one was completely new - the other one may have been opened (aka a very new store return) but both smelled fine. I would say, it's a great site for mainstream fragrances (esp. if your guilty pleasure is hasbeen celeb fragrance) but its split reputation has its reasons, so if you want that Marc Jacobs or Britney fragrance it's probably OK. One of my peeves is when companies say (we ship using FedEx, UPS, USPS, OR DHL but we can't specify which unless you order) so I'll mention that for me it was FedEx Smartpost which is notoriously slow but for a cheaper price, I don't mind the wait.
Terrible customer service. No update on my order for 6 days. Finally called and was told makeup and skincare takes longer to be shipped.Rep says it could be another week. Then she begin to blatantly lie about my order date.
I requested to speak with a manager, the rep ressponded "there is no manager". She then hung up the telephone in my face. I requested the order be canceled. Still no response.
packaging and bottle all look like the real deal, but my cologne smelled like rubbing alcohol. Ive been wearing Pleasures for men for 15 years(yeah, I like it) anyways I know what it smells like, this crap smells nothing like it. bottle of Pleasures at Macys $70 came out to $50 from this place. Really dumb not to spend the extra 20 for the REAL stuff.
I have ordered several fragrances from this merchant over the past five years or so. I worked in cosmetics and fragrances for quite a few years and would be able to recognize counterfeit packaging. Everything I have received from FragranceNet has been legit.
As for the observation that a fragrance doesn't smell the same as what you bought ten years or however long ago: fragrance companies have been changing some of their ingredients, even in France. This has been due to allergens, animal testing, availability of substances, etc. They don't publicize this, but it does happen every so often.
I placed an order on 12-10- 2013, did not receive my order as yet, no communication from FragranceNet, Tried to contact them this morning, Sat morning,business closed. Order charged to my Amex card. I have a record of my transation, first time i have had problems getting my order from them. Should have been no problem with misdelivery since we have been in very small community for over 30 years. What happened to my order? 90$$ and no perfume. Something smells and not like flowers or spice.
Placed an order on 17th Dec 2013, and still waiting for the items. Got an email on 24th Dec saying that the items have left warehouse via Australia Post with a tracking number, but the tracking never worked! Always displayed 'Invalid Tracking Number' on Aus Post website. Wonder have they ever sent out the products or they just gave me a fake tracking number???
I had my doubts about this company but decided to give it a shot. Although the perfume smells exactly like the original, the smell does not last at all! I purchased one perfume and received another as a gift, both perfumes I have owned and used before. Both perfumes, Chloe and Gucci guilty intense are strong, long lasting perfumes. When ordered from fragrancenet, the scents did not last even an hour. This site is horrible. I would rathe pay more and know what I'm getting is legit. Do not make the mistake I did!
This place S.U.C.K.S. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Waiting three days for tracking info to find out there is a hold on my "Confirmed" order. Called to find out why. Was on hold for 46 minutes. Then I get a B-atch who eventually hangs up om me!
WOW! Customer service? More like F-you, we got your money, now piss off!
DO NOT BUY ANYTHING HERE!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been on hold for over an hour just to speak with someone as I ordered gifts for the holiday over a week ago and was excited that I finally got my order or I thought so. The packing slip shows that they shipped both items, I only received one. When I finally reached customer service I was told the money was refunded as one of the items was out of stock. I purchased this on a gift card, I have no idea if it was refunded. They said they sent an email which I never got. I will NEVER purchase from this site again. Customer service has an attitude also after waiting over an hour on hold. There are other sites and stores that sell discounted perfumes. There is no reason to return to them and be treated so poorly. While some may have a good experience, I think these are their employees are relatives, 95% have had the same or worse experiences than me. Do not order. I wish I would have read all this first.
I Used This Before For Hair Products And Everything Was Fine. This Time I Used It For The Same Products, Ordering On Monday And Paying Extra For Shipping Before I Went Out If Town For The Weekend. By Thursday After Checking tracking, My Order Was Still In The Warehouse. They Would Not Let Me Cancel, Even Though It Hadn't Shipped. It Finally Shipped And Two Of The Three Items I Ordered Were Out Of Stock. That Would Have Been Nice To Know When I Put The Order In, since I Would Have Gone Elsewhere. I Will Not Use This site Again.
This is the first time I've ordered from this company and after reading the bad reviews, was worried that I'd been scammed...of course I didn't read any reviews until after I ordered :-(. I received the order today, 1 week after I placed the order. I got the perfume I've worn for over 10 years and can tell it's the real stuff. I also ordered cologne for my husband and it's the real stuff! Both packages were factory sealed. I don't know if I was just lucky with this purchase but I'm 100% satisfied.
I saw a lot of feedback about this company so I was a little Leary when I read both good and bad reviews, unfortunately, I had already ordered. After reading the reviews I tried to call but there numbers did not work...scary!! (this was a bad sign to me..)
I ordered both the coach poppy and A juicy Couture Fragrance, the larger size. My colleague also ordered from this site. We both got our tracking number and tracked it through fedex! They gave us an estimated delivery date and both came on time!
Both of my fragrances were perfect. Full size, the right ones and smelt good! This site was awesome in this aspect...and such a good deal! I wanted to post a good review because I had such a good experience! I would definitely use them again! I figured if they did over 10million fragrance sales it must be legit...but reviews did scary!
Love my new fragrances!!! Would do it again!
THIS COMPANY SELLS BOGUS PERFUME, AND THEN, PRETENDS THAT THEY HAVE NO RECORD OF THE TRANSACTION. THIS, AFTER AN APOLOGY, AND SENDING ME A RETURN LABEL TO SEND THE 3 BOTTLES OF "WHO KNOWS WHAT" BACK! THANK YOU AMEX! THEY HAD A RECORD OF MY TRANSACTION, MY RETURN, AND ARE TAKING THE $75.00 CHARGE OFF MY ACCOUNT. THESE PEOPLE SHOULD BE FORCED OUT OF BUSINESS.
I ordered 4 different perfume for Xmas present for friends, when I got the order one of them was smell terrible, that make you throw-up..too old for what it looks like.. I tried to call their numbers, none of them exist..those people said are happy about their purchased probably dont know the real thing..I will definitely return all my purchased. I Thot I gave them a try..very disappointing
Ordered L'EAU Bleue D'Essey. Paid on 11-15-2013, received on 11-18-2013. Is original and in original packaging. Priced for $62.00 + tax at local department store. I paid $40.00 delivered from Fragrancenet. I saw the reviews of the company after I ordered, so I was concerned. I'm happy with the transaction.
While I've never had a problem with the fragrances I've ordered from this company, the problem I do have with them is their processing and shipping time. The website states that expedited shipping is 2-3 business days and to me that means you receive your order in 2-3 business days. Other websites I've ordered from like ThePerfumeSpot, Scentiments, and ScentMonkey always process and ship the order the same day (if it's before a certain time) or the next business day. Fragrancenet didn't process my order even the next business day, but TWO business days later. That's completely unacceptable for expedited delivery service of 2-3 business days. And when I emailed them to complain that my order still hadn't been processed and shipped, their reply email stated that they don't guarantee processing and shipping for any certain amount of time. What??? Then why don't they change their shipping policy to "expedited shipping will arrive 2-3 business days AFTER we decide we feel like processing your order which could be anywhere from 2 days to whenever the mood strikes us after that." Their horrible processing and shipping policy is exactly why I haven't ordered anything from them in almost 2 years!
I ordered 4 perfumes from fragrancenet - 3 I purchased on reviews of other reviewers so i cannot comment if they smell true as i have never smelt them before but I won't be buying them again. The 4th was one I was getting low on and is hard to find so I do know what it smells like. I can tell you the perfume I received from fragrance net is totally different to the one I have. It is called Cassini and anyone who knows this perfume will know how devine it is and that the perfume lasts all day and all night. What I received was a perfume that smells nothing like the original I have, the colour of the liquid is a horrible dark brown and the perfume lasts about 1 hour. It also had the word Elixer on it which it didn't say on the website. I emailed them but got no reply and I put a review on their website which has never appeared. I have learnt a lesson to never buy from this company again. I am very disappointed with their products and service.
I ordered cologne on June 10, 2103.It is now July 2,2103 and my product hasn't come.I asked on several occasions to speak with a manager and on every occasion, the representatives told me their was no manager available to speak or contact me about the where about of my purchase. Never will I order any products from fragrance.net again!!!!
"I will never use this company again. On April 19th I ordered three Kings & Queens sugar body milks for my friends. The total shipping charge was $25.95 USD to be sent from Belgium to Greece which is expensive but still within reason.
After having sent several emails over the following 12 days asking when my order would be shipped and opening a case for non-receipt in Paypal, I finally got a reply with a tracking number. When I entered the tracking number on the site I was directed to, it turned out that the package has not actual been shipped yet (as of May 2nd).
I then had a look at my Paypal case and discovered that it said I only ordered 1 item. $25.95 USD for one 200ml body milk to be sent from Belgium to Greece is ABSOLUTELY OUTRAGEOUS, the most it should cost is about $8.00 USD and that's stretching it. The body milk was only $6.80 USD.
I have been ordering beauty products from all over the world for years and I have never encountered such bad service and practices from any company that I have dealt with. If FragranceNet.com doesn't have something in stock, they should give the customer the choice of wether or not they want to back order something and wait.
Also, they should not be overcharging customers for shipping to line their pockets. And changing someones order without informing them and then not adjusting the shipping, that is downright swindling."
Whilst the price I paid for some perfume for my wife was the best I could find (despite VAT and shipping costs from the USA), the bottle took over 3 weeks to arrive and was labelled as a tester and wasn't in the normal container.
And then, on checking the receipt in more depth, noticed that the VAT rate was being charged at 30%!
As this should be calculated at the local (i.e. UK rate), I sent a polite email question to them to which they didn't respond. And then another...and another....
I'll leave you to make up your own mind on this.
This is now my 5th order and everytime the items come quickly and nicely.
The last time i ordered though, they sent me a knock-off. but I automatically noticed it so I called their customer service. They were quite nice to me, and DID send me the real item but it took a 6 week delivery... that was a little upsetting, but after 4 consecutive good orders thats fine. Recommended BUT DONT rely on.
