The online store and service is superb... Shipping was amazingly fast and the perfumes came nicely protected, but also beautifully presented.... I'm incredibly satisfied with my experience, I'll be doing my perfume shopping here.

I can think of no better place to purchase and try niche perfumes in all of San Francisco. Make that anywhere for that matter... Exemplary in all areas. From keen pricing, extensive catalog and above all excellent customer service and attentiveness...

Jerry K.

The best. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. Authentic... Best fragrance shopping experience of my life. Will definitely keep returning. Opposite of everything fake, pretentious, snooty, and off-putting about department store fragrance departments, while maintaining elite products and database of knowledge and suggestions and wise network of sellers.

They have an array of diverse niche perfumes you won’t be able to find anywhere else. This place was great, because you can sample some niche fragrances you won’t be able to find anywhere else. 10/10 recommend.

We had just one day in San Francisco and Tigerlily was amongst our top priorities to visit... If I had to describe our time there in a few words it would be "feels like home"... the people in Tigerlily are extremely nice and kind; regarding fragances for me coming from Europe this is paradise I could find lots of treasures from creators within the states.

Had the best experience at Tigerlily today! Was recommended by a friend and was so glad I finally got to check it out. I loved the vibe, the music, the service, and the selection! I loved the fact that there were so many brands that were new to me...
