LUXURY PERFUME

Pricing at Luxury Perfume is slightly higher than many of its competitors. For example, the 4 oz. Polo by Ralph Lauren eau de toilette is sold for $63.90, while at least two other retailers sell it for less than $60. We also noticed a number of products that were listed as sold out.

The website itself is somewhat clunky. When looking at it on a smaller screen, the search bar covers up the logo, for instance. Also, products can only be sorted alphabetically by brand or searched for directly; there is no feature to narrow down options by price, hot trends/brands, and so forth.

The return policy at Luxury Perfume is reasonable: unopened items can be returned within 30 days of receipt for a full refund, and open/used products can be returned for a refund with a 20% restocking fee charged.

Shipping is free for all orders over $59 within the 48 contiguous United States. Luxury Perfume is one of the few retailers we found that does offer worldwide shipping as well; prices vary depending on the order's destination and the number of products in the package.

A few aspects of Luxury Perfume's site had us scratching our heads. We were excited to see that they are one of only three retailers in our review to offer a membership loyalty program - but other than the "Membership Loyalty" box in the middle of the home page (that didn't go anywhere when we clicked on it), we could find no further information.

Also, at the bottom of the home page, there is a rotating series of photos and testimonials; we thought that some of the individuals pictured looked familiar. We were not impressed to discover that the images were taken from online articles at Forbes and other places, and then attributed to different customer names (for example, the photo for "Brian Peterson" actually came from a story on Tomas Laurinavicius, the founder of a magazine for design entrepreneurs). This raises questions about the authenticity of the site itself.

On the other hand, while some customers have expressed concerns over product packaging (having received bottles that were leaky or even broken) and fragrances that don't smell like the original they were expecting, other reviews rave about receiving excellent customer service. This is particularly true when a fragrance went out of stock between the time of the order and the expected ship date; many shoppers said that Luxury Perfume went the extra mile to either refund the order and provide a discount for a future order, or even to send the product in a larger size for no extra cost.

Overall, Luxury Perfume seems to want to please its customers, but the results may be somewhat hit or miss.

THE PERFUME SPOT

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.

Perfume Stores

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

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!
