PERFUMANIA

If you've ever been to a mall in America, chances are good that you're already familiar with Perfumania. In addition to their more than 300 retail locations throughout the country and Puerto Rico, Perfumania's website brings all of today's hottest fragrances to you with a click of the mouse.

Finding what you're looking for is easy. If you know what you want, type it directly into the search box. Otherwise, you can browse by brand name, women's/men's fragrances, best sellers, and so forth. Further down the page, you'll find links to Perfumania's selection of haircare products and cosmetics, and in that same area you can click to see celebrity fragrances, selections under $100, and items under $50.

We were definitely impressed by Perfumania's pricing. Out of all of retailers in our review, they consistently had the lowest prices. For instance, when we searched for the classic Polo by Ralph Lauren eau de toilette, their price of $57.59 was well below the list price of $84 and was also the lowest we found among their competitors.

Perfumania is also one of only three retailers we reviewed that has a loyalty program. With Perfumania Perks, you'll earn a certain number of points for every dollar you spend online or in-store, depending on how much you spend over the course of 12 months. Those points can be redeemed for discounts on future purchases, and Perks members also receive other bonuses, such as discounts, free Travalo refills, free samples, and free ground shipping, depending on which rewards tier you qualify for.

Shipping costs are reasonable at Perfumania. Orders of $55 and up receive free shipping, and all others ship for a flat rate starting at $5.95 to US addresses (no P.O. boxes or APO/FPO addresses allowed) and $19.98 to residents of Canada.

Perfumania's return policy, while not the most generous among retailers in our review, is appropriate: unopened, unused merchandise can be returned within 30 days to a retail location or via mail to their Customer Care Department in New York, for a full refund.

Given their A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, lowest prices, and broad selection, Perfumania receives high marks. We're confident that your shopping experience at Perfumania will be a positive one.

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.

Perfume Stores

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

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!
