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.

PERFUME

Perfume has been in business since 1995 selling authentic perfumes online at a discount. Their site lists more than 10,000 scents and just over 1,000 well-known and lesser-known brand name perfumes. If you are uncertain of which type of perfumes or colognes are right for you, Perfume has written several guides and articles on topics including the history of perfumes and guides to choosing the right perfumes or colognes.

Prices range from $5 for inexpensive men's cologne brands such as Bod up to $527 for elite women's perfume brands such as Jardin Blanc. With each purchase, Perfume guarantees that products are 100% original brand names with no imitations. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your order you may return it for a full refund. Shipping offerings range from free Standard Ground in the U.S. for orders over $35 to Next Day Air for $13.95 plus $5 per item. They do also ship worldwide for upwards of $14.95 plus $0.99 per item, or more for premium shipping.

We did find, however, that Perfume has a less-than-satisfactory rating in online reviews. Their Better Business Bureau grade is a B-, with negative reviews describing problems with the ordering, shipping, and returns process not being as advertised on the Perfume website.

Other reviews online emphatically insisted that Perfume's products were not authentic perfumes and colognes as advertised. Many reviewers noted things like bottles arriving labeled as "natural spray" and that the fragrance only lasted 30 minutes.

Because of the issues with authenticity and longevity of the fragrance once applied, plus a definite pattern of ordering, shipping, and returns problems, we recommend that you choose a higher-rated perfume and cologne seller in our reviews.

Perfume Stores

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