Okay, after thinking on it for a couple of weeks since leaving this so-called "company." I have decided that since no one else in the Colorado area has submitted a Rip-Off Report, it's up to me.

I'm going to give the longer version of my experience, as it was someone else's detailed story that convinced me not to waste my time.

I moved to Colorado about 2 months ago to be with my husband, who is Army and was stationed here after returning home. I quit my job making $50k a year (yes, I'm only 20) and packed my bags. Upon arriving here, my husband and I decided I needed to find a good job/career, as we bought a house and plan on staying here for awhile!

Like so many others, I answered an add in the paper that read "Must be a little crazy, enjoy MUSIC, FUN, AND $$$. Management opportunities, no exp. necessary. WILL TRAIN. 719 536-9300."

Of course, I'm like "SIGN ME UP!" So I call the number and try to understand the girl on the phone, who answered it as "katrina, oops! Claudia, can I help you?" with blaring rap music in the background. She scheduled an interview for me that day, telling me where they were located and that it was the office under the "blank, red sign." Blank red sign I ask?? Well, okay, maybe they just moved in?? I do take the time to ask Katrina/Claudia what the company does, but they only words I understand are "going through an expansion."

At this point I'm curious, a little excited, after all, I'm positive I can be a manager, and I'll do whatever it takes to get hired!

Anyway, I call my husband and tell him how odd the phone conversation was, and he tells me that the office is in a bad area, and to bring a gun. He also decides to call himself and find out exactly what they do there. Five minutes later, he calls me back and the first words out of his mouth are "What's with the music??" and "They're some kind of fragrance distributor." Okay, I can work with that. After all, I've been in sales for 2 years, I'll sell anything, and I need money!
But it's still kind of odd. My husband and I agree that if I don't call him by exactly 4 p.m. He WILL be showing up there.

Anyway, I dress up all nice, tell my father-in-law about the job and drive 30 minutes to this "blank red sign." I sit in a front room with about 6 other people, (all of whom are in jeans and sneakers and even younger than ME (20).) I'm still a little nervous. We're all sitting there and the receptionist (about 18 years old) is answering the phone and scheduling interviews, sometimes answering as Katrina, sometimes as Claudia (for some reason this sticks out in my mind). The music is blasting and she keeps asking us questions like "What did you do this weekend? Did you see the new 50 cent movie? What are you gonna do this weekend, Party?"

This woman comes out and takes three of us into her office, where she asks us questions like who we admire, and where we want to be in 5 years. She tells us that she doesn't believe in the "don't call us, we'll call you" so she will give us a time to call and let us know then if we made it to the second interview. If we did, we have to dress sharp, as her bosses will be there and we have to impress them, after all, we're on our way to becoming management!!!

We will train for 4-6 months and then be given money to open an office in a location of our choosing, where we will be in charge of 10-15 people. (She still hasn't told us what we will be doing) She does, however, mention that we will make $52,000 our first year, and not to tell our friends and family this, because they will not believe us, and tell us its a scam!!!

She sends the other two girls I interviewed with out of the office and tells me that I don't have to call back, she likes my attitude, and she'd like me to come on Thursday for a second interview with her bosses. Dress Sharp, notebook, and pen, etc etc.

I go home, thrilled of course, call my husband tell him he doesn't have to rescue me today, but it is a little wierd. We talk and we decide that although it's odd to target people so young for management positions, some companies have to do it, as they can pay us less than they would an experienced manager.

I go in the next day, dressed sharp, notebook, and pen, ready to blow her bosses away. I need this job! If I can make the same money I was making, AND gain management experience at the same time, I'll be set!

Again, the front room, some of the people I saw yesterday sitting there, again answering Katrina/Claudia's questions about what we're doing this weekend, again "Did you guys see the new 50 cent movie yet???" It seems that everytime we start talking amongst ourselves, she cuts in with some really generic comment. "I love this song!" (music goes even louder)

Okay, Daphna comes out, says hi, how was your weekend?? (it's Thursday) Claudia brings us into the back room where our second interview will take place. It is a garage. Complete with the garage doors on either end and the table where the tools should be, but where is set up a mini-tv and VCR. The garage is decorated with cheap dollar-store decorations.

To make this part short, I spend the next hour hearing about how much money we will make after the first year (over 50k) How they will give us the training we need to be successful managers, and how she won't waste our time telling us about her bosses Corvette or half a million dollar house. She'll just tell us that if we work hard, ignore our friends and family when they tell us we're not capable of being managers or making $50,000. She also made a point of telling us we weren't there to make friends.

Daphna then spent a few minutes making us all feel broke. We talked about beaters, buying $1.00 worth of gas with nickels and dimes, and how the money she was promising us was more than our parents were making. Again and again she emphasized to succeed we must ignore our friends and family. She also told us that yes! There was a LOT of negative bullsh*t about their company! In fact, here was a file that contained most of it!

At this point I told her that I had tried to research the company "Divine Scents Distribution" on the internet and could find nothing. (We had not yet been told the name "Scentura Creations")

Moving on, after about 4 hours of learning absolutely nothing about the company, she told us that again, she would give us a time to call and see if we were hired. She stated that this was to test our determination.

She then went down the row of plastic folding chairs, giving us each a scheduled time, until she got to me. (The irony of what follows is restated in another Ripoff Report on Scentura Creations: Platinum Marketing International - Platinum Fragrance International.) Daphna asked me if there was any reason that she should not pick me, and of course I said: "I can't think of one.

I know I'm management material. I just need someone to see in me what I see in myself: potential." And what does she do, in front of everybody she says "Congratulations! I see it, too!! You don't have to call, just be here at 11am on Monday with a notebook and pen!" Everyone claps, and I exit stage right.

Monday: We're there, We're dressed sharp. We're ready to learn. Once again, the music is too loud for us to talk to each other while waiting, and every time we try anyway, Katrina/Claudia interrupts. NO! I HAVE NOT YET SEEN THE NEW 50 CENT MOVIE!

We spend all day doing ridiculous things like jumping up and down, cheering when she flickers the lights, corny dance moves. (To motivate us)?! We even played a game in which to add up dollar amounts on the board. She would explain later what the results of the game would be used for.

By the way, at some point during the day, when Daphna gave us all "nicknames", she through in the point that "Katrina" was the name given to Claudia during her training.

The only useful thing we were taught on the first day was how to properly accept checks, filling in all pertinent information, how to write down credit card orders, and that YES! WE ACCEPT CASH!

At this point I'm wondering, Isn't it too early to be learning how to receipt in funds??? After all, we don't even have an office or FUNDS to receipt IN yet!

It all makes sense.

The end of the day nears. We are getting antsy. I'm sick of cheering, I'm not a yeller. I don't want to dance. I want to learn how to be a successful manager. The total dollar amount on the board is $825. It is time for Daphna to tell us how to earn it. One lucky winner will walk away with $825 on Tuesday!

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
We will have a contest, whoever sells the most bottles of perfume to family and friends on Monday night is going to get the $825. (ahhh ha!) Of course, to do this, we have to meet our group goal of 115, or 125, or something, I don't recall exactly. Between 8 people. (This was after we'd been told that we would not be telemarketing, selling door-to-door, etc.

Also, even if we didn't meet the group goal or sell the most, we would have individual goals!

If we sold 5 bottles of perfume, we would make $25. and so on. $5 for every bottle after the intial 5.
This was done so that nobody gave up.

Another pep talk on ignoring our family when they told us this was a scam. (Which it was) Another pep talk on how whoever didn't show up the next day was weak. Daphna made a point of telling us that over half of us would probably not be there in 5 days. She told us these were the weak ones, the ones who weren't management material. (She didn't tell us that the ones who didn't show up were the ones who recognized the scam for a scam)

We high-fived. We left.

I was talking to a couple girls outside about how I didn't even know five people in the Springs to sell perfume to, when Daphna came running out for more high fives, and stood there until we seperated and left.
I realized later this was because she didn't want us discussing our "friendly contest" with each other.

I went home, discussed it with my husband, decided that I wouldn't sell any bottles, even if I could, and got on the internet. By now I had the "Scentura Creations" name, and was able to find this website, which I have used several times since to verify local companies. Thank You! I wasted 3 days on those people but could have wasted more!

I decided to write this report because I feel bad for those that kept going, who may or may not by now have recognized Diving Scents Creations for what it is. I hope this helps somebody.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

I used to work for Scentura Creations!

AUTHOR: Nick - (U.S.A.)

I worked for Scentura Creations in (Mira Mesa) San Diego. The people there were very trendy, but professional, motivational, patient, forgiving and very nice all-around. I can't remember the owner's name, (started with a "Z") but I did like him a lot.

Selling perfume door to dooor was fruitless. I gave it a shot during the day, since I bartended at night. I actually watched one guy succeed and open his own store - and good for him! I did have luck downtown, and you have to be a mover and a shaker. It IS a true test of motivation, perserverence and accepting rejection hundreds of times - which is really not a bad life lesson to go through, especially if you're going to be in sales.

You got to name your own price. If you were good, you could shuck and jive a (then) $18. of perfume for $30.00. If you just wanted to make a sale or were unconfident, you sold for $20. If you were average, you sold for $25 and kept $7.00.

Anyone know the prices today?

I was making far more money as a bartender, which was also a 'rock n' roll' environment. (I STILL remember that rock and roll atmosphere line in the ad, which is what caught my attention in the first place!), so of course, flipping bottles of liquor was far easier than carrying bottles of perfume.

While they did warn me of "naysayers", and "doubting people in my life", I'm a little split on that issue. If a job causes me to turn from my family, it's not worth it and smacks of cultism. But if I believe the program works, then no-one SHOULD hold me back, and I shouldn't let them IF I believe in my product.

I learned a lot of lessons failing at Scentura Creations. But it wasn't because of them - the product was/IS good. I still buy it today (if I'm lucky enough to see someone selling it, which is not often!). I got to take a roadtrip with my co-workers to Yuma, where I learned from some of the best street sellers I've ever seen. I got a lot of doors slammed in my face. I was called names by strangers and friends. I learned that a $1.00 bottle of perfume split between the salesman and management was eaten up in distribution, processing, shipping, breakage and promotion. I'll never forget learning to walk up to strangers and introducing myself knowing that while they might want my product, hated being approached. It takes GUTS to do this job, and I admire anyone who does it.

I'll buy a bottle from you if you make me smile and don't BS in your pitch. I know the facts!

As for nicknames, loud music and 50 Cent, WTF?! Maybe that manager is trying WAY too hard.

To the original poster, good luck with management. You deserve to do well, and have done very well, especially at your age. The best to you!

I Can Only Guess

AUTHOR: Torie - (U.S.A.)

Chris, I've thought about your response for a long time, and I've now decided to respond. I have a few questions for you:


Is your "office" and "management" position similar to Daphna's position? Do your supplies include second-hand furniture and stereo? Do you conduct your classes in a dirty, cold garage with metal folding chairs and an 8-inch TV set? Do you encourage your "employees" to ignore their family and friends, who only care about their well-being? Do you offer an hourly wage to those in your training program? Or do you tell them they will get paid by selling perfume bottles to family, friends, and businesses as a "learning experience" or "friendly contest?" Do you keep the music so loud that no one can talk to each other?

Chris, my final question: Do you lie to innocent, hard-working people who are only looking to make a decent living?

Divine Scents Distribution scam...I was almost one of them until I saw Torie's article....

AUTHOR: Jessica - (U.S.A.)

My father sent me an email this morning about how he thought this was a scam and not to get involved any further. I opened the link to Torie's report that he sent me and I couldn't believe it! She went through all he exact same things I did. Only I have not been to the Thursday interview yet. I was told last Thursday to call back and see if I had made the secondary interview. I called back at my scheduled time and sure enough I had made it in.

Now 3 days before my second interview I am finding out all of this information and I am NOT going back. I'm not gonna let them fool me. I just wish there was a way to inform all those other people I was in that hidden hole-in-the-wall office. I mean, half if them came in wearing dirty jeans and didn't look professional at all and had nothing to say during our "3 person at a time" interview, but they all most likely got chosen to come back to have more BS fed to them. I mean hell, this guy I was in the interview with came in wearing dirty black pants and a Conoco shirt, like he just walked in from across the street or something. Then he handed Josh Wheaton (the new Daphna) a crumpled up resume from his pocked with scribbled writing where he had "updated" it while walking down the street to the interview and Josh took it like it the was the most amazing thing he had ever seen!

Talk about unprofessional but I'm just glad I'm done with this before I found my self trapped and dumbfounded when I found out the truth and way too late. Thank you so much Torie! And just for anyone's information, I have already sent the Better Business Bureau a complaint to try and get these pricks out of business. I'll keep ya'll updated with what I find out.

Chris, I'd love to know how much they paid you to post this, but Torie's story sounds sadly familiar!

In 2004 my best friend Loretta responded to the same ad. She too visited a building with a blank red sign, and she too was filled with a bunch of BS from Daphna! Maybe this isn't a scam, but it surely isn't a way to feed your family either! When Loretta asked how much and when she would be paid, Daphna told her not to worry about it because the company would make sure she had a roof over her head and food in her belly. WTF?

If you really did make it with "Divine Scents" then CONGRATULATIONS! But for the rest of you seeking a job, and not a hobby, don't call this company. It's telemarketing on the streets!

AUTHOR: Chris - (U.S.A.)

and yes i am a manager at 24 years old. its too bad you only gave yourself 3 days to make a judgement call on a training that takes 60 to 90 days. its ok that you didnt make it though maybe it wasnt for you. but to make the assumption that you dont get an office or become a manager off what someone else wrote on a computer (that by the way that said something bad about the company was probably just too lazy to work hard) that you dont know either, it not true. also just to let you know claudia/ katrina, its not katrina they were saying C-10, which is her nick name. plus claudia, and daphna are still really new, they barely finished there training, so they are overly Enthusiastic about the opportunity, and it might seem to you and come off kind of weird. we've been around for 30 years do you think we havn't gotten any complaints, of course any company does (Especially for 30 years). if we are doing something illegal, why have we been around for 30 years, and are still expanding? its kind of funny all the reports on here say the same thing.... "i was there for 3 days... and this is what happened in 3 days ....."... you cant judge your success off 3 days.... 3 days ... they told you training was 4-6 months, yes the training is hard, yes your gonna learn how to market or sell cologne and perfume, yes you will make dog poo in training, and a meager living, that is true, and was probably explained to you. and yes if you are loyal for 60 - 90 days we will give you the next office, and you will have a chance to make 30 to 50 to even 80,000 your first year in running an office. if you ask me this business has changed my life forever, my life will never be the same, the company has shown we a different way to think and feel, and live, and save, and to be a better person. before the company i was very miseriable. this business has taught me to except myself and things that happen in life. because not everything goes your way, and i owe everything to it. thank you.
