AdvantagesA big variety of makeup,skincare,hair products and fragrances.


"...such on the internet and Fragrance Direct came up. At first I was like, 'Oh God, only perfumes?' but I was really surprised to say the least and happy because they did not only sell fragrances but also makeup,skin care and hair products and MEGA cheap prices - what more could a girl ask for?!

The aroma of fragrance Direct

Fragrance For All

AdvantagesGood range of items, most products in stock, cheap and fast delivery, great discounts.

DisadvantagesNot all products listed on the website, new fragrances can take 6 months to be added.

"Fragrance Direct is a website managed directly from the UK that specialises in fragrances for men and women as well as beauty products, skin care and body care too. It's considerably cheaper than buying direct from high street stores due to cutting out the middle man (i.e. shops and staff) and buying direct from the perfume houses. The company itself was set up in 1993 and the site was founded back in 1999. Using the Website- - The website itself ..." Read review

Smells Good

Advantagesdesigner perfumes and makeup at cheap prices

Disadvantagesunfortunately there is no smelly testing by pc monitor yet.

"...£35 at other online stores Fragrance Direct have it with a box for £28.50. This is not a tester. Now I know the postage is often where you get stung for deals like these but they charge a flat rate of £1 per bottle for orders in the UK - not bad in my books. As well as mens and womens fragrances this company also sell a skin care range, cosmetics and body products such as shower gel. Another range is their gift sets which do come boxed and there ..."

Advantagesmuch lower prices than the shops

Disadvantagesnot a good first experience ..

"...note stated that the Bvlgari fragrance was out of stock No e mail .. no letter from the company ... nothing I checked my bank payment , and they had only charged me for the one product , but had I been told there was a problem I may have cancelled the order and bought both elsewhere ( I had already seen them on another site and had wondered which to use ) I was pretty annoyed at this , and found the whole experience rather disappointing , BUT ..."

An Excellent Company

AdvantagesGreat prices, quick delivery, excellent customer service.


"I've been ordering from Fragrance Direct for well over a year now and the service they provide is excellent. They have a wide range of perfumes, cosmetics, etc, and the prices are always really good (especially for tester perfumes which can be incredibly reasonable) and delivery is always very fast. I've always received my orders within a couple of days of placing my order, even though I've only ever used the standard delivery option, so I wouldn't ..." Read review

AdvantagesAccurate website, prompt delivery, bargain prices

DisadvantagesMay have to wait for your favourite perfume to be in stock

"I am so impressed with Fragrance Direct- 1 spent £40 and got 2 100ml bottles of high end perfumes, normally selling for £37-£45 each. I ordered 2 products from them online Sunday and received them both on Tuesday, even though I only chose standard first class delivery. I bought both products at about half their RRP, a real bargain. The first one was in mint condition, cellophane wrapped, as described on the site. The second, marked Tester ..." Read review

Fragrance Direct - Fantastic!

AdvantagesClear description of item & condition; speed of delivery; extremely well packaged

DisadvantagesAbsolutely none that I experienced!

"...gift set of Armani Code fragrance & shower gel. In my opinion, website couldn't be clearer and easier to use - different ways in searching for items, whether that be by brand, style of fragrance, type of item, etc. Immense range of brands. Codes make the quality of the item clear, ie. whether tester, no box, no lid, etc. Ordered on Friday afternoon for birthday a week on Sunday and ordered standard delivery - website states within 5 working ..."

Order never arrived, money lost.

Advantagesgoot products

Disadvantagesvery expensive postage, unreliable

"I've ordered from outside the UK. Ddelivery is VERY expensive: Tracked Service- £6.50 for the first item. Each individual item £2.50! If I order 10 items - do they deliver everything seperately? 10 items would cost £29 postage - even if they are small and cheep products. Delivery cost many times more than usual. But since they were the only company who still offered the product I was looking for I had to choose them. I chose normal delivery ( £2.49 ..." Read review

Fantastic Fragrance

AdvantagesCheap, Fast Delivery, Well packaged.

DisadvantagesNone to name.

"...high street and other online fragrance retailers. Fragrance Direct were the cheapest by some margin compared to high street stores so I was a little dubious. Their website is pretty professional looking and lists an address and contact number which any reputable company should. There is a decent selection of the latest fragrances along with the old classics. Payment was made via PayPal which is pretty handy and one fo the safest payment methods ..." Read review

Quick review of Fragrance Direct

"Excellent I ordered Paul Smith Extreme for my husband on Monday and I received it on Tuesday. Excellent service. Would recommend and use again as the prices were so good. The site is laid out really well, telling you if the item is a tester or unboxed or as in my case new, boxed with a wrapper.

Cheap products but is it worth the hassle?

AdvantagesCheap products

DisadvantagesStandard delivery takes too long, unhelpful staff when things go wrong

"...ordered a few eyeshadows from fragrance direct and I waited 15 days for the goods to be delivered....... but they never arrived. When I asked for a resend I was told that the items that I had originally ordered were no longer in stock, so I asked for a refund,but fragrance direct wouldn't refund the P&P, only the value of the goods, despite the fact that failure of delivery was not my fault! I've been buying things of the internet for the last 2 years ..." Read review

Not just great smells!

AdvantagesWide range of products at credit-crunching prices


"...designer perfume bargains. But Fragrance Direct don't just sell perfume - there's also a huge range of bath, skin and hair products, cosmetics and a men's section. There's also lots of little extras, great for stocking fillers, such as the cute little ice cream flavour lip balms. At Fragrance Direct they know we love a bargain and have even included a "specials" section for each category! My order included Paul Smith perfume for £17.50 for my ..." Read review
