“shocking”

“Frauds and cheats”

Written on: 18/03/2012 by Chipmunk1 (1 review written)

Avoid this company at all costs! I ordered one bottle of perfume and two months later (long after Valentines day) I have been in ongoing email exchanges with them. They refuse to refund my money even though the goods have not arrived, and I have had to report them to trading standards. There are loads of reviews like this online and Trading Standards are investigating them. Their website gives a UK telephone number that doesn't work, their emails say they are based in the Seychelles, but… Read Full Review

I've had exactly the same trouble, I asked for proof of postage and they never provided it to me. I can't believe they were quick enough to take my money but can't be bothered to communicate. I hate companies like this and I wish I had known they were dodgy before I ordered. They had good reveiws on their website but I think they must have written them themselves.

“Very Poor...Scam!”

Written on: 13/03/2012 by hsrahman2 (1 review written)

Ordered perfume on 18th Feb 2012. Paid via bank transfer straight away, but after nearly a month still no delivery. I called both the telephone numbers given on website to no avail (line doesn't even exist). Got an e-mail response saying i should take it up with Royal Mail as i opted for the Economy delivery. Really not happy with these, lets be honest hustlers. Just contemplating what i should do next… Read Full Review

“Will not Refund my Money”

Written on: 05/03/2012 by CraigOm (1 review written)

PLEASE - do not order from this website. I ordered some Chanel - they took the money & then said that due to contractual reasons my order is cancelled and that they would refund the money in 5 to 7 working days. I have not received the money back - I should have checked up on this website - and would have found out they are a Scam. Good lesson learnt for me. Also they have a page on Facebook - I have reported this page as a scam - and hope many more people do the same. All I can say is that… Read Full Review

“Stay away!! Scam!!”

Written on: 25/02/2012

I ordered parfume for my girlfriend a month before Valentine's day. After three weeks I contacted essence-store.com, wondering where is my item. Their response was: "You have chosen Standart delivery,which is the cheapest and hides some risks. Please,check into the local post office of Royal mail,using your names" Are you serious?!! I picked the standard shipping method because I didn't need to rush the order, not because it is the cheapest! And what risks are you talking about?! The risk… Read Full Review

Ordered perfume for my wife in October 2011 and within two weeks I was worried. I contacted their customer services and I kept a note of all the E-mails I sent and a copy of all the E-mails I received from Essence, at all times I kept the input on a friendly basis.

“Scam artists”

Written on: 21/02/2012 by kp2627 (2 reviews written)

I purchased two bottles of Perfume from Essence Store on Dec 28th 2011. To date (24th Feb 2012), I have not received the goods. The company have claimed: 1) the goods are in the post 2) the goods are stuck in customs 3) the goods will be with you this week 4) please contact Royal Mail 5) as you did not pay for premium delivery, we cannot trace the goods and cannot take further action to resolve your complaint. My recommendation is that potential customers should avoid this company at all… Read Full Review

“I like most saw the website and read the reviews...”

Written on: 25/01/2012 by Vengeance (1 review written)

I like most saw the website and read the reviews without checking too deeply, I saw the price and thought they were reasonable, not cheap but not too expensive which is why they get everyone! It took 28 days for the good to arrive well after payment had cleared and were clearly fake, the packaging was inferior and shoddy, the bottle was cheap and flawed, the top was damaged, the label was askew and cheap looking and the EDT was pale looking and nothing like the original which I also had! After… Read Full Review

“Steer clear”

Written on: 12/01/2012

My order never arrived, I sent a query to both the payment company and to Essence. The payment company contacted me and said they would contact the store. Essence sent me an e-mail stating my order would be with me by the end of the week, followed a few hours later by one stating my order had been cancelled and stated that they had some issues with their bank partner. I told them that was not satisfactory as they had said it would be with me by the end if the week, they then said the issues had… Read Full Review

“Still waiting for the second bottle!”

Written on: 27/12/2011

In August (four months ago) I ordered two bottles of D&G Feminine. One bottle was delivered after a week. Since one bottle was missing I have been mailing their customer service almost every week. They only tell me that they have delivered one parcel - but it only contained one bottle. So I guess I just have to accept that the cost was twice the price according to the price list!… Read Full Review
