Scented Monkey vs Perfume

We recommend

 

Disclosure: We are not compensated by companies for their reviews, but we may be compensated for links and advertisements on our website. Click here for details.

 

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

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 Scented Monkey 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!
