It's about 15 months since I started collecting fragrances. I started in August of last year with Cool Water (a fragrance I had a very small bottle of years ago. It was the only fragrance I knew, aside from my dad's Polo Blue, which I liked as well. I started collecting cheapies such as Nautica Blue, BOD Man's, Adidas colognes, Tag and Axe sprays, putting an emphasis on quantity rather than quality.
One day I decided, I was going to discard (what I could not sell on ebay) all of
Does anyone know of a fragrance similar to Gucci Envy???
I recently purchased a great boxed set of vintage Chanel perfume tester bottles with box. Each measures 2 1/4 inches high. The glass appears to be in good shape with no chips or cracks. Chanel France is on the bottom of each. The box is in good condition but a little yellowed with age. The perfumes are Chanel #5, Chanel Bois Des Iles, Gardenia and Chanel Cuir De Russie. The Gardenia is full of juice and sealed and the Chanel Cuir De Russie is about half full. I believe the year is 1920. Great shape!
Now that you have sampled some fragrances, you found one that you love. You want to buy a bottle. If you don't do your research, you can be in for sticker shock. A bottle of Montale Cuir d' Arabie goes for $101 from their webstore, or $200 from another online perfume retailer. WOW, that is almost double! Creed Green Irish Tweed is $315 from the Creed website, but only $124 from several online retailers. DO YOUR RESEARCH! Don't jump at the first bottle you see. EBAY is a good place to buy,
