Scentura Creations - Perfume Scam At Scentura

45 of 56 Scentura Creations reviews

The perfume scammers at Scentura won't give Investigative guy John Mattes a manager job.Why do they always kick him out from all the offices he goes to . What are the folks at Scentura hiding? Why do they not like TV cameras?

For 10 years Investigative reporter John Mattes has dropped in to their offices only to be pitched out as soon as they see his camera. So you be the judge and enjoy the tape

Scentura Creations in Milford CT was managed by a real scam artist back in the late 80's. His name was Dave - his line was "Let's get fired up". Same thing, send everyone off to sell cheap imitation bottles of perfume to their families and then off on the streets. His pitch line instruction for you was to tell the buyer that it's actually the real authentic product just that it's from the bottom of the barrel. I'll hold off on his last name for now, he ruined a lot of people. He was the true definition of *** bag. I hope he's rotting in jail somewhere by now.

This is one of the longest-running scams out there. If they are so legitimate as they like to claim, why do they operate under so many different names? (Your local "office" is never called "Scentura", names vary from location to location).

I 'worked' with Scentura over 10 years ago. As you sell the perfume you are permitted to sell the perfume at lower prices, so you can continue to try to sell it at the higher price and keep a larger part of the profit, or you can try to sell them at the lower prices in order to advance faster. You are out with people who are able to sell it for lower prices than you, trying to sell the same product to the same people. Find me another place where people who have been around longer can sell the product for less than you so that they get the sales instead of you.

As for all of those people who have moved up through the ranks and are allegedly doing great and making lots of money, I had to drive one of the hot shot managers home one night because he didn't own a car. He was in his forties, living in a run down house with his mother. Anyone can say they are making a lot of money.

Yeah, I went to an interview session to one of these, you can just here the BS coming out. Larry bla bla bla has this much money bla bla bla, wants us to make him money bla bla bla...i went back to this place not too long ago and it was left empty and the people were no where to be found. If in one year you can make 50,000 dollars? where are these people now? lol..so much for that new office and all them new people that were promised...lame, and whoever backs these people up must still be out there selling perfume..lol

This is not a scam, its a free handout for people who are serious,eat,breathe,and sleep success. IF YOU CANT HANG WITH THE BIG DOGS,STAY UNDER THE PORCH. I just began working there,and it may be extremely challenging,but I have met with people who have finished the training program, and now own their own office. If you know how to hustle,then you will get through this program and become a successful entrepreneur. I know I will. God bless you all and may you find what you seek.

Big dogs? LMAO! They are panhandlers! They are parking lot hustlers, begging for money in seedy parking lots. People who scrub toilets command more respect than the homeless looking sales slobs who try to push this over-priced knockoff perfume. You know that zit-faced kid who took your order for 2 cheeeburgers from the dollar menu at McDonalds? THEY make more money than you AND they have better working conditions. They also aren't in danger of being arrested for panhandling without a license.

You all are Lame.... This isnt a scam it's called work your *** off to sell this *** so you can own your own office.... I havnt been there for a week yet and already know 2 guys who are at the level of Sr Manger and in the next week are going to be opening there own offices... I have even seen the office space for my self... SO if your afraid to go out and give it your all then maybe Managment and owning a bussniess is not for you Becuase in sales you have to work hard to get that money... Money just doesnt fall in anyone's lap And if you cant handle going out and talking to strangers, Then your better off being what we call the cow !! Someone who just wants to work there every day petty job and be told what to do untill they retire... Have it... And good luck.. I'm a rhino I want it i see it and i'm going to give it my all and make sure i'm going to make it to the top, and you have to ask your self if they are a scam how the *** are they still in operation from the early 70's ????

Ok... Logic check please. You receive a product from a distributor that you then must sell, at profit, and then send a portion back to said distributor (Scentura). Fail to do so, and you will be sued. Larry Hahn isn't giving this stuff away. So how does that make you independent.
Simple things please simple minds. All these turds have to say is, "You will get your own office." And you tools get weak in the knees and starry eyed. Tell me, in that eight weeks of slave labor.... ooops.. I mean training that you performed, did you learn how to actually RUN a business? Things like payroll, inventory, accounts receivable? Do you even know what I'm talking about? I doubt it. I mean come on! You get your own office! Huzzah!! All that other stuff is for rubes right?
The cow? A Rhino? How quaint and hokey! A sure sign of a pyramid cult is its propensity for silly catch words. Diamonds, Emeralds, Cows, Rhinos, polished turds.. what have you. When you are dealing with the bottom of the barrel you have to keep restive drones happy. Dropped out of High School? No problem! We all know that education system is designed to keep you from succeeding. Kid at 15? No worries! Nothing wrong with starting early!
I actually pity people like you. Is your life so devoid of achievement that even the faked empathy that the Scentura vultures throw your way is a light in your miserable tunnel of existence? I would prefer no pity to contrived pity any day.

This is Nick Brunson, web-admin for Scentura Creations. Unfortunately, it seems there’s a lot of negativity and false information circulating the internet regarding Scentura, and I think it’s based mostly on people’s misunderstanding of the Scentura Opportunity. I thought I’d post something brief that would help make things clear.

First of all, Scentura Creations is a manufacturer and supplier of rendition fragrances. They distribute their product line to Independent Wholesale Business owners throughout the U.S. They’re unique in that they provide merchandise without any capital outlay to these Independent Wholesale Distributors , meaning they don’t pay Scentura until after they’ve sold the merchandise. This is key because it removes a huge barrier of entry into business… Inventory costs.

Second, the sales model used by most independent businesses that sell Scentura’s products is that of Direct Selling. It’s a business to business, face-to-face sales strategy that has worked for over 35 years. It’s not glamorous, and it’s probably not for everyone, but it just works.

Last, and most importantly, Scentura doesn't ask you to invest any money, it's not a franchise, it's not a pyramid or multi-level marketing business, there's nothing to purchase, there are no sign-up fees. The only thing required from you is your time and hard work, and you’ll get a chance to run your own business. How many companies out

I'm so glad the woman next to me at our group interview asked about more information about 'Gryffon Mgmt', and our interviewer mentioned Scentura. I'm grateful I found about this scam before I became involved, and am sorry about the people who were seriously screwed over. I can provide their latest location, phone#, if need be. Thank you for saving me.
