Essence of Luxury...?

#2
I just made a purchase from them, so far everything has been good- purchase went through easy and communication has been very prompt. My order should be shipped within the next few days and is coming via DHL so it will probably be a little over a week once it ships so at that point I can let you know how it went and what quality looks like.

Just to update on this, my order has already been shipped, I have the DHL tracking and DHL contacted me letting me know the package will be arriving on Monday. So I placed my order on the 3rd and I will (assuming there are no customs delays) have it on the 8th. I still can't speak to the quality of their work but I am very impressed with their communication and shipping turn around so far. I am super excited to update with my experience on monday when the package arrives.

Hi! I just saw these post, and I too am so curious about this site because I really want to order a specific bag from them but entirely hesitant. As soon as you get yours please update us on the quality etc.? Thanks!

My bag just arrived! So the first thing I observed is it is super well packaged. They definitely went out of their way to make sure it was not damaged in transit. It was bubble wrapped, around a fitted box (I had to actually cut the tape holding the box together because I could not slide the purse box out of the fitted box. Inside the purse box the bag was inside its dust bag and that had been wrapped in plastic. Inside of the dust bag the purse was wrapped further with plastic coatings on all of the hardware. Ok, so enough about the very secure packaging. How is the purse itself? I'm very happy with it. Its a canvas and leather LV Petite Malle, the canvas looks to be good quality, the leather is lovely, the hardware looks good. One thing I was really looking for in a replica of this design is the alignment of the monogram canvas along the purse's opening and they align perfectly- honestly I've seen a couple of authentic versions of this bag that didn't align as nicely so I am really happy there. All of the rivet/stud detailing has the appropriate inscriptions, the hardware is all marked. The hardware is maybe a little lighter than on an authentic bag but its not as light as I expected it to be, it has some heft to it. The Canvas has great texture, just as it should, and that slight sheen that you see on the authentic bags. All the proper markings are on the inside and the quality of the internal leather lives up to the quality of the exterior leather which is nice and thick. The leather is stiff but that's consistent with what I saw of this design in the stores- I am looking forward to working the stiffness out of it with use. Definitely from a distance this bag looks authentic. One thing that is off, is the date code on the inside. The code indicates that the bag was manufactured in France but Petite Malles are manufactured in Italy. Aside from that there are one or two areas where the stitching is not as ideal as it could be (its definitely not bad, don't get me wrong) I was going to say that is a little bit of a give away- until I went and reviewed a couple of the unboxing videos I had watched before of authentic versions and they have similar stitching issues in those areas so I suspect its just a challenge with the thick leather. So my final verdict is that I am really happy with the purse. It actually better than the one they have pictured on the site which has a sort of "give away" error that I had just accepted and knew going in but the bag I received doesn't have that error (its a monogram canvas alignment error) so I was really thrilled to see the bag I received didn't have that error. The bag does smell like treated leather. So its going to need to air out so do be warned about that, the smell is pretty strong. The purse box is definitely not a flimsy replica, its a thick box with th proper colors and lighter contrasting interior. The dust bag is the correct lighter cream/white color. The stitching on the dust bag is decent but definitely does not compare in quality to the purse itself. Overall totally happy. I think you really need to know LV and really need to know this specific design in order to tell the bag is not authentic (unless you look at the date code, lol) Based on what I received both the service and the product, I am definitely comfortable ordering from them again. The Petite Malle that I ordered was less expensive than I've seen on other sites (such as DD) and I was really torn about that, because its substantially cheaper on essence of luxury and I thought that might mean it will turn out to be inferior quality but I was willing to accept "pretty close" for the $ savings. I'm am very glad I did because the purse has all of the details that really mattered to me absolutely nailed even better than some of the sites where the design is more expensive. I of course can't speak to other models and designs but the Petite Malle is pretty detail intensive with a lot of challenging technical details particularly in the alignment of the monogram canvas and they nailed it, perfectly, so the gives me some confidence that they will have the details on other designs and items I'm interested pretty well covered. We'll see next time I order. Oh, they also included two freebies- a little purse keychain with their information on it and a pair of replica Chanel bead earrings (which are surprisingly heavy!) I feel my experience ordering from the company was great and look forward to placing my next order when I can.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience. You made my decision to purchase from them so much easier, so I just went and bought a bag myself. I will let you guys know my experience when it arrives as well. If this all continues to work out, it will be so great to have a new replica site to use that is reliable and less expensive. Thanks again for letting us know!! :)

No problem, I hope your experience is as good as mine was! I'd love to hear that the company is consistently good across different bag models and designers. I'm planning on checking out some shoes for my next order so we'll see how that goes.

So I bought a Chanel bag from essenceofluxury.com and had a really good experience. The bag looks like the real deal, and I received it quickly. I hope everyone else has the same pleasant experience.

So far I am really happy with my experience from the company- I've placed 3 orders so far, my second one was for a pair of shoes and they are amazing, I adore them. My third order is for another pair of shoes and they are unfortunately out of stock in my size but the company contacted me literally within 24 hours and asked if I would pick another design or if I was willing to wait a few days for the shoes to be made in my size which is what I opted to do. Also, I've never had any trouble with western union payments online with them, all three have gone through without a problem which has been really convenient. I've heard that westernunion payments often fail online but for me with this company that has not been the case at all.

I just ordered from them as well. Did they send you pictures of the product before shipping it for QA?
