Most perfume and cologne is purchased at big name department stores. Like all products sold in these stores, a healthy premium is added to all the perfumes sold in order to offset the costs of operating such a large store. Outside of the expensive mark-up you also have to deal with the driving, parking lots, long lines and the lack of help that exists in department stores today. Instead, many savvy shoppers have discovered an alternative to the traditional high priced, inconvenient approach - shopping for perfume online.

Get Your Perfume at Perfume Emporium Today Every year, more people are buying their perfume and cologne from online perfume stores. These stores allow you to purchase your favorite perfume or cologne in the convenience of your home and at a discounted price. Depending on the state you reside in, you will probably be able to avoid sales tax. Many stores even offer free shipping, depending on the amount of your total purchase.

When looking for an online perfume store you'll want to consider a few factors before making a purchase. Some of these include:

  • Selection. Does the perfume store offer a wide selection of perfume and cologne?
  • Shipping. Does the perfume store charge a reasonable fee for sending you your purchase?
  • Return Policy. What if you're not satisfied with your perfume or cologne once it arrives? Can you return it for a full refund?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best perfume stores available today. We hope this information helps you make your next perfume purchase!

Perfume Emporium

PERFUME EMPORIUM Visit Site

TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award Perfume Emporium is the place to go when searching for online retailers of discounted fragrances. With over 15,000 original designer fragrances, competitive prices, supportive staff, and a very user friendly website, Perfume Emporium will keep you coming back for all your fragrance needs.

Started in 1999, Perfume Emporium is a dream realized by two brothers with a mission to satisfy customers with superior customer service and low prices. We feel Perfume Emporium is an excellent choice due to the full service nature of this site.

First off, Perfume Emporium offers an excellent selection of perfumes and fragrances. If you know a particular designer fragrance, you can easily find it with their convenient search facility. On the other hand, if you'd like to see what's new in their supply, or would like to check out the top customer rated fragrances, Perfume Emporium allows you to easily browse through those selections.

Perfume Emporium is also the only retailer that offers an incentive program in the way of Beauty Bucks. With these, repeat customers are rewarded with lower prices off the already discounted fragrances. We also really liked their Fragrance of the Month Club that allows you to try new scents each month for only $8.00. They are the only retailer we found that provides this unique and fun option.

If you're buying a gift for someone and don't know exactly what to buy, Perfume Emporium offers a Gift Finder facility. Simply answer a few questions, and they will suggest a fragrance to you. They also have a Gift Reminder option that will remind you in the future of important gift-giving dates.

While they have an extensive collection of perfumes and colognes, Perfume Emporium offers discounts on even more products. They offer a wide range of Skincare, Makeup, and Haircare products as well. Within these categories, you can search alphabetically by brand, or by price range to find the product you're looking for.

Savings are significant across the board on all the products they offer. Perfume Emporium ships both nationally and internationally. If you're not happy with your order, Perfume Emporium allows you to return it within 60 days of purchase for a full refund. This is much more generous than other perfume stores in our review. Shipping fees vary depending on the number of products ordered and start at $5.90.

Overall, Perfume Emporium impressed us with the large selection of discounted 100% authentic fragrances, and convenient search options. Further, they go beyond just a perfume store by offering a rewards program, monthly perfume club, gift finders, and product request. For all these reasons, Perfume Emporium earns our highest rating for Perfume Stores.

Fragrance X

FRAGRANCE X Visit Site

Fragrance X stocks over 8,500 discount fragrances, many of which are discontinued in stores and are difficult to find. Their perfumes are guaranteed to be 100% original designer fragrances, and shipping is free on orders over $35.00 or otherwise $5.95 for 2-5 day delivery.

Fragrance X offers a lengthy list of perfumes and colognes. You can easily scroll through their alphabetical listing of perfumes if you're looking for a particular brand. On the other hand, Fragrance X also provides a variety of perfume groupings to browse through. These include Top Sellers, Testers, Celebrity Scents, Hard to Find items Gift Sets, and more. If you're not exactly sure which brand of perfume you want to buy, these options can be quite helpful in determining your selection. Unfortunately, they do not provide a search option by price, which we think would be very helpful.

The return policy offered by Arrange X is reasonable, with a 30 day refund period for any unopened product. In addition to perfume, Fragrance X provides a number of discounted Skincare and Makeup items that you can purchase, although these are not eligible for return.

Overall, we were impressed with the quality of scents offered by Arrange X, as well as some of the search options they provide. They earn high marks for perfume stores.

Scented Monkey

SCENTED MONKEY Visit Site

First off, Scented Monkey offers an excellent selection of perfumes and fragrances. If you know a particular designer fragrance, you can easily find it with their convenient search facility. On the other hand, if you're more concerned with price, Scented Monkey allows you to identify a price range and will show you all the selections that fit your needs.

Scented Monkey charges a flat $5.95 shipping charge. We wish they offered a Free Shipping option on orders above a certain dollar amount. However, you'll be pleased to know that you can track your order online through the Scented Monkey website. For customers outside the U.S., Scented Monkey also ships internationally.

Scented Monkey features a unique Price Match Guarantee. If you can find the same product on another website for less, Scented Monkey will honor that price. We didn't find this on any other perfume retailer we visited.

Another feature unique to Scented Monkey is the "Try Before You Buy" option. This allows customers to choose from a list of 8 samples and try them for just $2.99. This is a great way to try a new scent without wasting money on a large bottle of something they don't enjoy. However, the selections offered in this program are hit-and-miss; sometimes their are no perfumes to choose from at all. It's best to check back from time to time to check on availability.

As a result of their large selection of fragrances and competitive pricing, combined with their low price guarantee, Scented Monkey earns high marks.

Fragrance

FRAGRANCE Visit Site

Fragrance is a publicly traded company that was founded in 1997 and has since built a reputable name for themselves. They only sell 100% genuine products. There are absolutely no knock-offs or imitations contained on their website.

Fragrance offers a choice of either 30% off your purchase, or free shipping to anywhere in the U.S. This is a unique option that we really like. It gives you the option to choose the discount that best fits your purchasing needs.

While the navigation found on Fragrance is a little cumbersome, they still provide a range of search options to help narrow down your perfume selection. For example, you can search by gender, category (for example, best sellers or new arrivals), brand name, product type, and more.

Unfortunately, Fragrance doesn't provide an option to search by price. This may prove a little frustrating if you're looking to stay within a particular price range when shopping. Instead, you'll need to search each product area to meet your needs.

Overall, Fragrance is a straightforward provider of fragrances, skin care items and more. With average prices and a middle of the road website design, Fragrance gets the job done simply and without annoying gimmicks.

The Perfume Spot

THE PERFUME SPOT Visit Site

Upon first visiting the site, The Perfume Spot looks like an outdated web store design. Navigation to find what you're looking for is a bit clumsy, and they don't offer nearly the range of search options provided by the other sites in our review.

On the plus side, The Perfume Spot does offer authentic, brand-name perfumes and colognes. They also provide a selection of Bath & Body products and Hair Care items as well. Many of these products are indeed offered at discounts from what you could find at traditional retail stores. They have served over 2 million customers, and have earned awards for outstanding customer service. They also offer a 30-day money back guarantee for any unused items that you receive.

However, The Perfume Spot comes up short when compared with other online discount perfume stores in some important areas. First, they provide only a minimum of search facilities to help you find your desired perfume. While they offer an alphabetical list of the fragrances they sell, missing are some of the convenient options we've seen elsewhere, such as search by price, by top sellers, and by gift sets.

Also, while The Perfume Spot offers free shipping, we were disappointed to discover that it only takes effect on purchases of $79 or more.

While The Perfume Spot offers quality products at discounted prices, their lack of search options and high free shipping requirement drops them in our ratings.
