Affordable Scents / Do not buy from them

1 United States

A few months ago I gave in and decided to splurge on some fairly expensive "Opium" Perfume that I've always loved.
I found it on line at a Company called "Affordable Scents" at a slightly discounted price.
Their Website was plastered with exclamations like "Brand name - we guarantee you'll love it" !! "Thousands of satisfied customers", etc.
So I purchased a medium size bottle for $65.00 plus Tax, S & H, etc.
When it arrived a week or so later, I knew as soon as I opened it that it was BAD. It looked like the Brand name I was used to, but it smelled like a mixture of Vinegar, "Raid", Pot-Pourri, & Corn chips (I kid you not!)
It was so obviously bad that I was certain the company would take it back and refund my money.
When I emailed "Affordable Scents", they said I was wrong and that "All Sales are Final". (She also did not sound surprised at all with my complaint...) I asked them "What does it mean that you say all over your website - "You'll love our perfume - we guarantee it"! Basically that means absolutely nothing - just a figure of speech loosely translated from an Asian culture.
I was very angry because the perfume is so disgusting that I would not even give it away! I said "Just let me return it, you smell it and then decide if i am crazy" - They would not even do that.
I decided to wear it one time to work hoping maybe it was my olfactories gone awry - and I swear to God when my Boss came in that morning she said right away - "Did someone spray for bugs"? UNBELIEVABLE!!
So now it just sits on the counter looking pretty reminding me of the $78.00 I threw away!
