Topic: Where to buy authentic discount perfume online?

Now I am absolutely terrified of buying perfume online sine I have gotten 3 total bottles of fake perfumes. What sites have you used to buy perfume that you know you can trust? I was going to order from fragrancenet.com, but today I learned how to tell the real Viva La Juicy from a knock off. Besides the color being off, on the front of the box it should read 3.4 oz 100ml on the authentic box, on a knock off box it reads 100 ml/3.4 oz, and when i was about to buy it off fragrancenet.com I looked at the picture and the picture had the knock off box....Please help! I'm hoping that they just used a picture they found online and sell genuine perfume because I'm ready to rip all my hair out right now knowing how I was played like a fool on eBay.http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.4410.jpg  Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy

Re: Where to buy authentic discount perfume online?

I use cheapsmells and I haven't really had any complaints. I did have some similiar worries with my Mitsouko and Femme, but I just compared with the perfume in the store and it was the same. Sometimes perfumes can be reformulated to the point of non recognition. http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.207.jpg Guerlain Mitsouko  has become much more watered down, but still smells good. I also ordered about 3 fragrances from Amazon and they are all good. However it is a bit of a hit or miss. Sorry about your bad experience. Did you pay a lot for your bottle?

Re: Where to buy authentic discount perfume online?

Sorry to hear your bad exp.  Both sites below are my favorite and they confirm the authentic product. Their rating is very high. & Sorry, i never buy from eBay or Amazon so i can't mention on that.

FragranceX (always cheap) >> they claim " All products are original, authentic name brands. We do not sell knockoffs or imitations." and i trust.

& StrawberryNet (check the price well, but when they have promotion >> grab it as soon as you can.) >> this site is fair enough to tell you if they are on sale for any item which is expired-soon product

I rarely buy from Ebay, unless I know the perfume coming from an individual and the post actual pictures of their bottle in their darn kitchen, or whatever...I never trust a seller who uses a standard stock picture...Not EVER....they sell fake Coco Mademoiselle's on there too..

They always give you a discount code and take a lot of money off the entire purchase with Fragrancenet...Oh and if you live close to a TJ Maxx, girl go there for your Viva! I got mine from them at a steal...all of their stuff is legit too..

Or Amazon!

Sorry to hear about your experience, report their butts to Ebay! At least now you will be perfume savvy,and you won't get ripped off again.

Re: Where to buy authentic discount perfume online?

I paid $65.00 for it. I was beyond angry. I sent a message to the seller telling them it is illegal to sell fraudulent perfume and that i will take proper action against them and I swear ten minutes later they sent me a message saying that they are refunding my money. I checked my paypal account and 15 minutes later it was in there. I just don't want to see this happen to other people who will think it is genuine. It really angers me!!!!

When I looked at the photo on fragrancenet.com it had the pinkish liquid of Viva which is the knock off....do you think that is just the photo they used? I want to order from there but I am so weary now of ordering online.

Re: Where to buy authentic discount perfume online?

So glad you got your money back! 65 Dollars is a lot of money to lose. I'm too scared to buy from ebay as well although I've seen a couple of things I'd like to buy. I think I'll just keep my eye on the biddings. Take care  30

Re: Where to buy authentic discount perfume online?

Thinking of buying a few bottles from FragranceX. I usually buy on eBay and always use PayPal for payments. I have received a fake Dior Fahrenheit, fake YSL La Nuit de L'Homme and Dsquared She Wood Velvet Forest and I once ordered a Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche I never received. 2 of them immediately refunded as I sent them a message. With the 3rd fake it took about an hour but after threatening to file a claim with eBay, they refunded. The item I never received got refunded by PayPal, took about two weeks. With PayPal I'm certain that I will get my money back if fragrances are not what they should be.

The feedback ratings on eBay give insight into whether or not a seller can be trusted. I mostly rely on other peoples feedback now.

Sometimes they'll even sell "unboxed" items for really cheap!

I am trying to find a good deal on an Aqua Allegoria scent and these came up as the cheapest online. But I'm a little apprehensive.

Amazon as long as you buy it through amazon retailer. You can tell when you select your item and it tells you who the item ships from/what shop owner sells it. I've bought 4-5 fragrances direct from amazon for almost half off and all were authentic plus they have 100% customer guarantee so if it DOES somehow turn out fake (never has happened to me)  they will refund you no questions asked. They have insane customer service.

Re: Where to buy authentic discount perfume online?

I think this one is a good resource of buying cheap perfumes:

http://www.ibeautycity.com/

There are many brands there.  Besides, that you may try amazon.com perfume part, I found many are quite cheap too. but pay attention to the seller performance of the store.

Re: Where to buy authentic discount perfume online?

I have never received a fake from fragrancenet but read here of a few saying they thought they had. It does have a very good reputation though.

Also, they use stock photos, so what you are seeing means nothing. I've seen some complain that they thought they were getting old stock HP and MP because of the photos and were upset when, of course, they received the current versions of these perfumes.

I've also ordered directly from Amazon with no problems - both times, I received the real deal at an awesome price. Amazon is great!
