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.
Upon first visiting the site, The Perfume Spot looks like an outdated web store design.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.
To help you find the Best Perfume Stores, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Perfumania 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:
