    Just purchased this 3.5 ML of Egoioste Cologne Concentree from eBay and I'm doubting the authenticity. I see white flakes floating around that sink to the bottom of the vial... When I smell it does smell like my EDT version but more pronounced but not mind blowingly so. Should I keep the vial and transfer to an atomizer and see if I get better results, or should I just get a refund? Attached are some pictures, thank you for your responses. This was the only one the seller was offering btw. http://imgur.com/FB204pN.jpg http://imgur.com/vyIwWXa.jpg

    The "flakes" your seeing are probably just stuff coming off yer skin from dabbing. This happens w/ dab vials and roll-ons. Since it is a small vial, i would not bother returning it. The difference in strength of this and your edt could very well be the difference in application method, i.e. dab vs. spray. Yes, i would transfer it to an atomiser and see how it does.

    Yeah, the dab versus spray application can definitely make a difference in your perception. If I'm seriously considering a sample, with plans of buying a full bottle, I usually transfer to an atomizer to get a better feel for it before going all in.

    I would not worry either.

    Thanks for the replies guys! Sorry for the late response in my own thread I was afk for quite some time. I actually took a pipette so I had no skin to vial contact. I have read that it's probably just due to the ingredients age etc. I will just get another atomizer and transfer and see how it goes. Thank you again!
