World Perfume and Scentura Pyramid Sales Schemes

Like thousands of other people across the world I spent five wasted days in "training" with the company World Perfume, a break off of Scentura Creations. During those five days I was manipulated, blatantly lied to, and taught how to lie to mislead potential customers.

For those of you not completely familiar with these scams, there is a brief explanation of what World Perfume ( WPI ) and Scentura is and how they operate.

On the fifth day of training it struck me: World Perfume was the most elaborate and devious multilevel marketing scam I had ever seen. And I am not alone, HUNDREDS of people like you and me, middle class and lower class have raised there voice in anger and frustration with this vicious scam.

After quitting, I then began to research World Perfume extensively on the Internet:

Enraged by the distributor's blatant lies and the distributor's weekly manipulation of young people who are unemployed and looking for that "lucky break", I decided to use my anger and frustration in positive and constructive ways.

I only lost five days of job searching because of this company, if information like what is on this web site had been available I would have never gone to that first scripted interview and would have found real employment sooner.

Why hasn't the authorities closed down Scentura and World Perfume?

A question that I asked, and I am sure many of you are asking yourselves is:
If Scentura and World Perfume are so horrible and the business practices of all distributors are so unethical and illegal, why are they allowed to continue to be in business? The reason is because of the deceitful cunning of the founder of Scentura, Larry Hahn.

All distributors MUST sign an independent contract before they can sell ("drop") a single piece of perfume. This independent contract makes the parent company legally immune from anything that these distributors do. No matter what illegal, unethical practices the distributor does. No matter how many people these distributors lie to and cheat, the parent company is legally immune from prosecution. Even though the Scentura web site takes credit for developing the concept that distributors use as a model for running their businesses. (Note 1)

When Johnny Whitworth, formerly one of Larry Hahn's biggest distributors, quit, he stole the entire concept of Scentura, including the "independent contractor" idea. (Note 2) World Perfume and Scentura are virtually identical. (More on the independent contractor license)

Why did we write this web page?
We write this web page in the hopes that others will avoid my same mistakes. This web site is named after the ruling of the Second District Court of Illinois ruling against Scentura Creations. The court found in favor of a former Scentura Creations Distributor who left the Scentura scam to join the World Perfume scam.

The court ruled: "In our view, the consignment contract between plaintiff and defendant is properly characterized as a chain referral sales technique or pyramid sales scheme"

Within two months we had closed down our local World Perfume distributor. We build this web page in the hope that others can use the EASY STEPS to close down their local Scentura or World Perfume distributor and help others to avoid being scammed.

Please help us close down World Perfume and Scentura.

Recent Distributors which have been closed down and/or forced to stop advertising in the classifieds:

Scentura distributor:
July 26, 2004 :

I applaud your efforts. Actually, we have shut one down. That's why David Babb is
in Missouri
now, and not Central Florida. And let's see if E-O-E is here 6 months from
now. We have raised the ad issue with the attorney general's office before, and we will again.

Thanks for the site with all your information.

July 7, 2004:

Now TWO distributors have been shut down in Salt Lake, a World Perfume distributor and a Scentura distributor:

Scentura distributor:
Commercial Wholesale advertising in the Salt lake Tribune and Deseret News
Salt Lake City, Utah

"I spoke with Susan Hessler, the director of the Newspaper Corporation, which
does classified advertising for the Salt Lake Tribune and the Deseret News, and
she said that all four accounts for Commercial Wholesale have been locked and
they are unable to advertise in those papers anymore.

If you call any of Commercial Wholesale phone numbers:
467-8971 or 467-8972 or 467-8973 the phone numbers have been disconnected."

See the full web posting

Commercial Wholesale is ran by one of the largest distributors in Scentura:

Richard Greenly AKA Richard Wentz

If we can close down this large distributor, no distributor is safe!
You can close them down too! Call your newspaper classifieds today!

World Perfume and Scentura Distributor Aliases

Scentura: 570 sales offices worldwide according to Buffalo News; Buffalo, N.Y.; Mar 28, 1992
(Based on other Scentura dubious claims this is probably a gross exaggeration)
World Perfume: about 50 sales offices according to inside sources.

Linked distributor names have additional information available, usually BBB reports.

[I trained under these managers originally. Tammy and Joe used to work in Salt Lake City before we closed their offices down. Johnny Whitworth said he would "investigate this further" about all of the dishonest and deceitful practices that I reported, instead, we shut down this distributor, and then Tammy and Joe moved to Florida to practice the same dishonest and illegal tactics.
So much for World Perfume's promise to "investigate this further". The fact is, that every World Perfume and Scentura distributor use a script, which is the same for every distribution center.
The Salt Lake distributor's training practices were the norm. Every distributor, Scentura and World Perfume alike, use the same dishonest script.]

World Perfume WORLD PERFUME worldperfume cologne scam fake perfume distributor better business bureau BBB World Perfume international Scentura John Whitworth Johnny Whitworth witworth Larry Hahn lary han larry han scams fraud scam Scentura creations international opportunity

Special thanks to Mike Barrick, Michael Cronin, David Dombrowsky, Catherine, Traci, Amber and the dozens of former managers and owners who decided to expose this scam for what it is to me directly and on chat borads, and the hundreds of people who have written me directly or post online detailed accounts of the Scentura and World Perfume scam. Without your continued moral support, suggestions, and information on how these pyramid schemes work,
this webpage would never have existed.

My only wish is that this web page someday become obsolete because together, we close down these vicious pyramid scams once and for all.

(1) From an archived Scentura Creations website:

"Twenty-three years ago in Atlanta, Georgia, Scentura Creations, Inc. established a unique concept that provided an opportunity for people to be in business for themselves. By removing many of the barriers on the road to financial independence (lack of capital, education, or experience) Scentura Creations discovered a way the average person can realize the American dream of being his or her own boss."

(2) I do not accuse World Perfume of stealing the concept of Scentura without ample evidence. Although I have always suspected this, only recently have I began to post this. But after compiling a side by side comparison of Scentura and World Perfume training, it was strikingly obvious that World Perfume and Scentura train out of the exact same manuals.
