Is iFlorist the greatest website in the universe, ever?

Raised eyebrows at gushing customer reviews

Here's the beef, according to one alarmed netizen, who can't bring himself to believe the reviews are the genuinely florid outpourings of blissfully happy customers:

iflorist are leaving fake positive reviews to cover their terrible ratings

At the time of writing iflorist has 116 terrible reviews on Reviewcentre and 153 positive reviews on Trustpilot, of which around 100 of them have been left in the past 3 days. They are all clearly fake. e.g. "No wedding is complete without flowers.Flower is the symbol of purity.i Iflorist is doing a great job providing flowers."

and my personal favourite: "Iam buying flowers online from iflorist.co.uk cause i have never seen a wonderful store like iflorist"

I suggest you draw your own conclusions about a company which needs to make up reviews about it's own service in order to cover up bad reviews.

Here are a few more examples of the tremendous praise being heaped on iFlorist:

The first and most popular flower of love is the red rose. The red rose symbolizes love, desire and passion. Though this flower’s meaning is blatantly clear to most, it is best to give to a partner when the relationship is serious, or has the intention of becoming so.The fourth flower of love is ambrosia.

Ambrosia is the flower of reciprocated love and affection. This is the perfect gift to give in an engagement or upon accepting a date. Coupled with a red rose or dark red carnation, the recipient will have no doubt of the sender’s affection.
