My favorite indie perfume shop- nothing but good things to say

Post by lisaplusplus on Mon Sep 15, 2014 1:30 am

I've ordered batches of sample from this shop a bunch of times recently, and my experience with them has consistently been really positive. Every time I've ordered, they've shipped early the next day with a tracking number and arrived within three days. Samples are always thrown in, which they let you specify in the order line if you'd like. Anytime I've had a question, I've been able to get a really quick response from the shop owner on etsy.

I love so many of their scents, and have found their quality to be very consistently high. I have around 50 samples from them, and maybe 6 or 7 of them were misses for me (which, to be fair, I probably could have guessed from the descriptions, but I got excited enough about trying things that I experimented with a few scents that would normally be out for me.) The prices are really fair too, especially if you're looking to sample a lot of scents. All time favorite indie perfume shop.

My first order with Alkemia was for 10 samples because I just couldn't decide which ones I wanted most - so many sound AMAZING... anyhow, when my order finally arrived a few weeks later (I live in Australia) I ripped into the package to find two full sized and two samples and as I had multiple orders from multiple companies I was waiting on, I didn't initially realise the mistake. I didn't recognise the names, but when you have a serious addiction, that's an easy mistake Wink Anyway, I hadn't ordered what was sent and whilst I fell in love with one of the full size bottles, I wanted my samples. I immediately emailed them (as I was just as concerned about the person who's package I'd received missing out on THEIR order) and they couldn't have been more helpful! They told me to keep the order they'd sent me and would post my samples right away... they haven't arrived yet, but hopefully soon as I REALLY want them! I was very impressed with that attitude though, I must say, and will purchase again.

Fast turn around time. Samples are priced very reasonably. I did not enjoy any of the perfumes when I orginally recieved them, as they all smelled like soap. Month or so later, I tried them again and they smelled completely different and some of them I now liked.

Love love love Alkemia. I've order both samples and full sizes from them and they always ship promptly and get to me in 3 days. I also don't know what sort of witchcraft they use to pick my samples but I always end up adoring them, sometimes more than the samples I pick out myself. Definitely will order again from them in the future.

Nothing but great experiences with Alkemia.

I've ordered from Alkemia a couple of times and have had nothing but great experiences. I love the art their team uses for scent listings, and I like that they sort their fragrances by notes. I have ordered both samples and full sizes, and everything is packed very securely. I have liked most, if not all, of the fragrances I have received. Most of them last quite a while on me.

What I'd really like to rave about is the TAT, though. I ordered one full sized fragrance on Black Friday, and it was at my doorstep in Texas on Monday. It was incredible. I will for sure order from Alkemia in the future.

Love Alkemia. They were my first indie perfume order, and they were fantastic. Fast TAT, cheap samples, large catalogue and great perfumes. I find that the samples sometimes had to sit for a few weeks before they settled down fully. I have only ever had one dud from them, which is incredible! Recently I ordered just one fullsize bottle and they added two samples for me! Would recommend them time and time again.

Very nice fragrances. I was happy with it. I got Smoke and Mirrors which is a nice scent for layering. My next etsy purchases will be Winter Kitty ( Strange Women) and Contess ( Siberie Perfumes). Love the niche fragrances, the price is right and it's fun to switch it up time to time.

I got a couple of samples in a swap, and decided I wasn't yet ready to commit to full sizes, so I placed an order for some of those same samples, and some new ones, as well as one full size. One of the samples I had fallen in love with was discontinued (though I requested it in my order just in case), but to my surprise when I got the package, there it was! I got my sampler of 5, and two free samples. Quick TAT, even to Ireland.

Overall a very positive experience!
