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.

SCENTED MONKEY

First off, Scented Monkey offers an excellent selection of perfumes and fragrances. If you know a particular designer fragrance, you can easily find it with their convenient search facility. On the other hand, if you're more concerned with price, Scented Monkey allows you to identify a price range and will show you all the selections that fit your needs.

Scented Monkey charges a flat $5.95 shipping charge. We wish they offered a Free Shipping option on orders above a certain dollar amount. However, you'll be pleased to know that you can track your order online through the Scented Monkey website. For customers outside the U.S., Scented Monkey also ships internationally.

Scented Monkey features a unique Price Match Guarantee. If you can find the same product on another website for less, Scented Monkey will honor that price. We didn't find this on any other perfume retailer we visited.

Another feature unique to Scented Monkey is the "Try Before You Buy" option. This allows customers to choose from a list of 8 samples and try them for just $2.99. This is a great way to try a new scent without wasting money on a large bottle of something they don't enjoy. However, the selections offered in this program are hit-and-miss; sometimes their are no perfumes to choose from at all. It's best to check back from time to time to check on availability.

As a result of their large selection of fragrances and competitive pricing, combined with their low price guarantee, Scented Monkey earns high marks.

Perfume Stores

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

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!
