Hit or miss with this one, I guess that's expected with the low price. How they can be so very close on some fragrances and pretty far off on others is a mystery.Example : perfect Lolita Lempicka and pretty horrible Angel. Customer service is so-so although I have returned some items for exchange .Altogther, I could recommend this company with caveats- considering the price, you are not out much.To their credit, I have liked a couple of their items more than the original. Definitely go with their samples. In general, I think they are an average company of that type, although like all the others, they try to say they are exclusive.

Like other reviewers have said, it is hit or miss. Some of the fragrances were really great, others had a strange kind of chemical smell that is hard to indentify.
One of the oils went on smelling nice, but after applying it, the scent changed.
This was not just on me, but my daughter tried it too.
The oil stunk up the entire livingroom, giving everyone who was there a headache, and no amount of soap could wash it off!
When I contacted Hayward Enterprises, Laura was extremely patronizing, and she told me that no one ever had complaints before, that I was probably not used to concentrated oils, and that a little goes a long way. Then she proceeced to tell me how to apply it!
My reply to her was that I have been buying fragrant oils for years, and although many of hers were nice(the stinky ones had been mentioned) the majority did not smell like the brand.
An example I gave her was this: I had a bottle of Estee Lauder Pleasures, a fragrant oil from another company, and hers. Hers was nice, but smelled nothing like the perfume, where as the other oil was identical in its fragrance.
She told me to send the oils back(acting as if she was doing me the biggest of favors). The only reason they were never sent back was something very important came up, she was therefore no longer on the top of my priority list.
I will never again stray from my original seller again.

Most of the fragrance oils from Hayward Enterprises are very good. However, I ordered the Magie Noire Fragrance Oil and was very disappointed. It did not smell like the original at all and did not last long. The Jovan Musk was excellent and so is the Chanel No. 5. I would recommend that when ordering a new oil to order the smallest size possible so if you are disappointed, you did not spend alot and if you like it, you can always order more. I will order from them again and I would recommend them to others who do not want to spend a small fortune on perfume.

I skeptically purchased this product and turned out to be pleasantly surprised. Included in my order was Juicy Couture-Couture Couture Type/Juicy Couture-Peace Love and Juicy. I haven't smelled the brand perfumes, but the oils were amazing! I just put an order in for Victor and Rolf-Flowerbomb type,Chloe-Love, and Angel by Thierry Mugler and am looking forward to my orders arrival!

I ordered 5 samples from Hayward Ent. and really liked most of them. I am going to place another order. I really liked their Tova dupe - I am ordering a larger bottle of Tova from them. They ship the product very quickly. I got my fumes in 4 days.

Definitely hit or miss. Some were great (Calandre, Estee Lauder Private Collection, Creed Royal Water), but others were absolutely awful: Chanel 19, Chanel Pour Monsieur, Rive Gauche (M). The ladies' Rive Gauche smelled dead-on, but within 10 minutes turned into something that you might find at the Dollar Store.
When I emailed to ask about the availability of a scent not listed, Laura snarkily replied that no one had ever asked for it. Really? Agent Provocateur?
Thanks, but I'll stay with HolisticSprings.com and TheFragranceShop.com.

Wow! I'm impressed. I thought I'd take a gamble and try their version of Pure DKNY. I'd tried a small version of the real perfume, but something about my body chemistry - it hardly lasted longer than a body splash. My order from Hayward came in about a week. (*Take note - I received no notification that my order had shipped. This caused me to send an inquiry email to them on the day my order actually arrived in the mail; thus causing a "forget about my order inquiry email." lol)
For $10, I received the most gigantic roll-on bottle of oil. I'm truly shocked and SO pleased. So far, my initial impression is that the smell of this versus original is dead alike. I'm going to go order some more small perfume sizes imminently!

I was very pleased with the quality of the perfumes and colognes I purchased from Hayward Enterprises. I could not belive they smelled exactly like the name brands and they lasted all day. I bought several roll-on bottles a few weeks ago and they all arrived promptly and without damage. I would definitely reccommend this seller to my friends and family. Also, when I called in with a question they were very friendly to me.

I got 10 samples from this company. They were all in the same vein as the original perfumes, and a few I liked even more than the originals. A few I didn't like, but that was because I didn't like the originals either. Their version of YSL's Baby Doll is better smelling than the actual thing, although both scents are extremely similar. Their Hanae Mori is 100% spot on with the original. For the price, this is definitely worth a try.

These oils were just NOT good. Not even close to the originals. I actually wasted the time and shipping charge to return my stuff for a refund, but there was never any acknowlegment from Hayward of receiving the returned merchandise so therefore no refund ever came! I didn't even bother to follow-up, just chalked it up to another "iffy" on-line experience.
There ARE some very good online fragrance oil companies (with attentive customer service to match) who make really good dupes. But this company isn't one of them.

I tried 5 oils from the company and I must say I was sorely disappointed. Marine Groove was so disgusting I almost threw up. Can Can was god-awful. The Fancy type was weak and did not have many of the same nuances that other fragrance oils of the same type had. My mom has Hanae Mori perfume and noticed that although the oil smelled like it, the dry down was non-existent. In minutes you could no longer smell the oil.
I could go on for days about the product itself but what was most deplorable was the service. Their 100% money back guarantee (including shipping) is bullshit. When I returned the product they "never received it." Laura claimed she was doing me a favor and refunded the the purchase price but not the original shipping like the guarantee states. We go back and forth for emails and she then mentions something about in order to get the original shipping refunded I would have had to return the entire order. All in all my biggest mistake was not springing for the $0.90 delivery confirmation so that I could file a claim with paypal.
Overall a horrible seller if you don't like the products. False advertisement, mediocre to awful products and basically a waste of time. I have found that fragrantbodyoilz and sweetbodytreats4u on ebay not only have smaller, less expensive samples (to make sure you really like the product first), they are generally less expensive overall (for the amount you get), and ebay helps ensure that you receive the phenomenal customer service you deserve.
Do yourself a favor and learn from my mistake (I ended up paying over $10 for a 1/6 oz roll on of mediocre fragrance oil).

I have been purchasing these oils on and off for about 4 years. I love them and with most of them, they are dead on! They really do last and last on the skin, without turning, like a lot of "imitation oils" do. I have never had a skin reaction either. I have ordered all the philosophy fragrances, plus, burberry red (love this one!!), shalimar which is a teeny bit different, but wonderful, Chanel 5, honestly, too many to mention. Customer service is speedy and they are packaged reasonably well. I am sure I will repurchase. Once you are on the mailing list, you get special offers from time to time, which is why I have so many. I would recommend them to a friend.

We sell these in my store, and I have a few. These oils are pretty complex and reasonable facsimiles of the "inspired-by" scents. Their version of Marc Jacob's Daisy is dead on; Patou's Joy not 100%, but still fabulous. Juicy Couture and Flowerbomb are really popular, but not my style. They are very concentrated and last forever--very economical. I only dab a tiny amount and I'm set for the day.

Don't be fooled by the low price-- these fragrance oils are truly fantastic: very concentrated, nuanced, complex, and skilled dupes of designer frags. They are NOT the typical sickly, simplistic, godawful roll-on "body oils" we've all encountered.
Go to haywardenterprises.com. Really! And that's from a perfumista.
The Chanel No 5 and Anais Anais oils I ordered are spot-on from drydown to daylong wear. I am amazed. I actually like them better than the original because, minus the alcohol that is added to commercial frags, these actually smell richer and more rounded. I paid $4 for a 1/6-ounce roll-on bottle that is absolutely pure and uncut fragrance essence and will last forever.
**EDIT had to take off a lippie after a subsequent order of 4 samples was disappointing. The Chanel No 19 smelled like bug spray, the Michael Kors was just a generic gardenia, and the Ombre Rose wasn't quite right either. The "Leather Jacket" actually smells like a new leather jacket, which is kind of cool when layered with spicy scents. So, it's definitely more hit or miss with this one. But my first order was all dead-on hits: Chanel 5, Calyx, Cashmere Mist and Anais Anais. It's a $4 gamble, but when you win you really win!
