    I am a real perfume snob I'm afraid and love my designer smells. This site looks amazing but I am worried that the aroma will match the price. The sizes would be just perfect for holidays however. I think I will just hang on until I have got some feedback from you Fern Merkin. Don't forget to come and report back. Thanks.

    Hi,

    I ordered some perfume from the perfume parlour a few days ago, I opted to pay by cheque by mistake so contacted them and said I wanted to pay by debit card, they asked if I had a paypal account (which I had) so sent me an invoice and I paid, the money has now come out of my account. According to my account my order is still pending, even though I have paid and the money has gone from my account. I have contacted them several times but have received no reply. Has anyone had problems with this company? Is the pending order normal, when the money has been taken (I have not received a receipt for my payment.)

    Many thanks
  • Just ordered 3ml Joop for DH and Kenzo Flower for me!not bad for £3.50 total - will update once i receive them.
    I find that ordinary perfumes dissappear after a hour or two, so hoping that these will be longer lasting.
    Thanks for the tip!

    Sorry to hear you are having trouble. I have found their communication quite good as one of the items I ordered was out of stock and they helped me pick another I would like. My order has been delayed by this so not received yet.

    Hope it works out ok.

    Good to know that you have received your order MXW. Will you re-post when you have had a chance to use it for a day or so. I would be interested to know if the smell is authentic, if it is long lasting and importantly, does it affect your skin at all.

    Thank you.
