    A search on kelkoo has brought up https://www.cheapsmells.com which is the lowest price for the perfume I'm after.

    Has anyone tried them? The reviews on kelkoo seem quite positive.

    I've used them a couple of times now and i'm very satisfied with their service

    Have also used fragrancedirect.co.uk twice in the last week and i'm extremely impressed with their speedy delivery , I ordered something yesterday and it arrived this morning! :T

    There's a code for 10% off at Fragrance Direct on the Discount Vouchers board

    Sadly Fragrance Direct only do a tester of the fragrance I need, amazing price, but it's a xmas present for my mum, so don't want to go down that route.

    Going to give Cheap Smells a go. They sound pretty impressive from what I've read.

    What scent lasts longer on men ? (i.e EDT/aftershave/spray etc), as when I put it on the scent doesn't seem to last long (currently using eternity for men EDT spray).
    Remember that even though you can't smell the fragrance, others will still be able to. Especially with something like Eternity.

    I made that schoolboy error years ago with Eternity - people were coughing and eyes were watering all around me!! :D

    There are a number of online cheap aftershave and perfume shops - they can cut the cost of smelly stuff in half.


    fragrancedirect.co.uk* (first one to try, good for benchmarking the price)

    halfpriceperfumes.co.uk

    These tend to sell testers and imported perfume and aftershave from other markets (grey imports).

    This shouldnt be a problem, but it can mean 'unboxed' perfumes - which may be a problem for gifts (quick tip: if you do want to do it as a gift, simply go and buy a nice looking gift box and pack it in that - the cost saved on buying the perfume should more than cover it).

    Of course not all cheap online perfume is what it says on the box (if there is a box) so it's always worth a healthy degree of skepticism. !Though i'm often told my own John Rocha aftershave bought this way still smells good ;)

    That's really a good price. I haven't ordered from that company before so sorry can't help. I did however buy the Diesel Zero Plus EDT for Men 75ml + deodorant spray (150ml) gift set from Superdrug the other day for only £9.50, if that is any help to anyone . They also have the Diesel Zero Plus for Women 75ml edt + deo for £9.50 too. Both I hope are good prices - I live in London so don't know if this is available nationwide?

    After following the advise from this thread I order a 100ml fully boxed bottle of burbary weekend as an xmas gift. I also took the option of gift wrapping.

    The package arrived very promptly and was well wrapper, I was very impressed.

    Gave it to my girlfriend to open early on Christmas eve and when she did it was 25ml gift set of Angel?!?!? She tried it and didnt like it, and she had asked for the burbary weekend, leaving me with a red face simialar to the one above.

    OK, I thought, it was thier fault they will sort it out ASAP for me to keep things sweet (not to mention the other person who order the gift wrapped Angel and ended up with my perfume).

    Their response was we will not send out the correct perfume you ordered until we get the wrong one back (which is not stricly legal as I have bought and paid for the item they are refusing to send). I asked for them to pay the postage for returning the wrong item, they sent... A 2nd class prepaid A6 envelope - valid for up to 60 grams bear in mind this is a big box

    Are they having a laugh?
