Words: Emily Venables
The process of shopping to many people means meandering around their favourite stores, picking up items, trying them on and in the case of perfumes, smelling them before deciding to buy. However, if it’s not possible to visit a shop in person, you can have a great experience shopping online too!
If you’ve never shopped or bought perfume online before, follow our step-by-step guide on how to find a fragrance at The Perfume Shop and get it delivered to your door.
Step 1: Find a Fragrance
Online at The Perfume Shop, you can browse hundreds of scents and discover a wide range of luxury and bestselling brands. Use our handy ‘Fragrance Finder’ to narrow down your search and find the perfume that is right for you or a loved one.
Once you’ve found a fragrance you like the sound of, select the size you wish to purchase and click ‘add to basket’.
Step 2: Use our ‘Try Me’ service
If you’ve found a scent you like the sound of but want to try it before you open a full-size bottle, why not give our ‘Try Me’ service a go?
Look out for the ‘Try Me’ logo on any of our product pages and add a sample to your basket along with a full-size item. This way you can try the sample at home, if you love it you can keep the full-size bottle, if it’s not for you then you can return the unopened bottle free of charge using our Collect + service.
Step 3: Personalise Your Order
Fragrance makes such a special gift for someone as they can enjoy it time and time again. However, at The Perfume Shop, you can turn an already fabulous present into one that is truly unique with our Personalisation Service that allows you to engrave a message on to a bottle. You can choose from over 300 scents and write a message with up to 66 characters to create the perfect gift.
Step 4: Collect Points as a Member
When you have finished filling your virtual basket, it’s time to finalise your purchase. If you’re a member, you can use your Loyalty Card online, just like you can in-store. Sign in or sign up before completing payment to collect your member points.
