Fragrance vs The Perfume Spot
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.
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.
Upon first visiting the site, The Perfume Spot looks like an outdated web store design.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.
When looking for an online perfume store you'll want to consider a few factors before making a purchase. Some of these include:
