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.

THE PERFUME SPOT

Upon first visiting the site, The Perfume Spot looks like an outdated web store design.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.

Perfume Stores

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

  • 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!
