The Perfume Spot vs Hott Perfume

Best Perfume Stores

To help you find the Best Perfume Stores, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of The Perfume Spot and Hott Perfume.

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.

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.

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Upon first visiting the site, The Perfume Spot looks like an outdated web store design.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.

Hott Perfume

HOTT PERFUME Visit Site

Hott Perfume lists all of today's preferred brands, from Alfred Sung to Yves Saint Laurent, and at prices that are impressive. For example, when we looked up a basic Polo by Ralph Lauren eau de toilette, their 4-oz. bottle was listed at $57.99, the second-lowest price we found among the retailers we reviewed.

Unfortunately, those low prices may not get you a true bargain. While there are a handful of customers who are satisfied with their purchase, the vast majority have had issues with product quality, often receiving a fragrance that doesn't smell like the original. Even when comparing them side-by-side, there are obvious differences in the labeling and packaging to indicate that the item bought from Hott Perfume is a knockoff.

Their B- rating with the Better Business Bureau is further evidence that customers aren't very happy with their experience with Hott Perfume. Many of the complaints there describe receiving bottles that were almost empty because they had leaked all over the packaging, and then getting no answer from the customer service email at Hott Perfume.

In fact, when we looked at their "about us" link on the site, we were directed to a page that had five coupons and a basic email address - not a toll-free number, an address, or anything else about the business itself.

There is also no listed return policy or shipping costs.

Because of their lack of information and the overwhelming number of unhappy customers, Hott Perfume receives low marks. We strongly suggest that perfume shoppers check out the other retailers in our review.

Continued from above

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?
