Review: Perfumes.com.ph

 
Perfumes.com.ph is what you might have guessed it to be - a website that sells perfumes! Yey! I recently purchased two perfumes from them and thought I'd give a review as their site is relatively new.

First off, you might be wondering why I resort to buying perfumes online when there are so many malls to buy them from. Thing is, I live in a province that boast of innumerable resorts but very scarce shopping malls. I know of only one department store that sells designer scents and the choices are pretty limited. So my only option is to get the scents I want online. 

Second, Perfumes.com.ph sells authentic (not class A, not Singapore-made) perfumes for a lot less. 

Price:

I can't fault their pricing. They are really cheaper than the ones they sell at the malls. Plus, they ship it to you for free! 

Scents: 

They have a wide array of perfumes for sale - even designer ones that are a bit hard to find in department stores like the Gap Heaven one I bought. You can find Salvatore Ferragamo, Marc Jacobs, Versace, Moschino, Lanvin and many other designer scents as well as celebrity scents like Mariah Carey, Justin Bieber and Jennifer Lopez to name a few. 

So if you are looking for a perfume and can't find it in your nearest mall, chances are, you can find it at Perfumes.com.ph. 

The scents are really authentic and stays with you the whole day. Don't even waste your money buying the Singapore knock-offs. They promise a few hours of staying power but they rarely, if ever, deliver. Just spend a bit more on the authentic ones and you'll get your money's worth.

Service:

Buying is very easy and seamless. Their payment options are as extensive as their perfume options. Paying through paypal is the easiest as your order will be processed promptly. I suppose they will contact you with their details should you opt for other payment methods.

Packaging was neat. The perfumes were wrapped in layers of bubble wrap so there's not even a dent on the boxes. 

My second transaction came with two vials of perfume testers (Davidoff's Cool Water and Lanvin) so thanks to Perfumes.com.ph for that pleasant surprise! I couldn't be happier with your service and the quality of your products!

Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Review

I might as well squeeze in a review of the scents I got. Elizabeth Arden is my all-time favorite, being a fan of green tea scents and all. I'm not so adventurous in my choice of scents as I like clean, summery and refreshing scents more than the extremely flowery or citrusy ones.

I have vertigo and I get severely motion sick when traveling so I need scents that will not contribute to that. Elizabeth Arden's Green Tea Scent Spray offers that to me. The scent is an instant pick-me-upper. It reminds me so much of summer, which I really love. The green tea notes aren't very overpowering and blended so well with the citrus ingredients.

Gap Heaven Review

This is the first time I'm trying Gap Heaven although I've heard so many good things about it. But honestly, it took me a while to like this scent. I was expecting a lighter, fresher scent but got something with a more exotic orchid-like fragrance instead. It initially reminded me of JLo's My Glow, which I absolutely loathe. 

But I gave it a chance and wore it last Saturday. To my surprise, it worked well with my body chemistry and actually has a nice scent once it stays and works its magic. It's not as overpowering as JLo's My Glow. I think I'm going to keep on using this for those days when I want something more flowery. 

So there. I hope this review is useful especially to those thinking of buying from Perfumes.com.ph. I think I'm going to save up for the much-vaunted Marc Jacobs Daisy or maybe get myself another bottle of Davidoff's Cool Water. Till next time ladies at Perfumes!

  1. Glad you were able to nab some perfumes for yourself Kathy!! Shame that you don't really have a place to get them on foot but it sounds like this online service works out even better :) The Elizabeth Arden perfume sounds lovely, I've got to go give it a sniff one day!
