That is a very small market, I think most people who would buy this already have their tried and true suppliers. It's a huge risk to take otherwise.
You might be better off taking the time to sell it in small quantities by cutting it up and packaging it nicely then try punting it on ebay.fr or something like that. I don't even know where you could get something like that officially appraised and authenticated.
I can't think of anyone who would buy that apart from a perfume house. Have you tried contacting any? The smaller ones would probably be interested but I doubt they would want to buy the whole piece so it might be better to cut it up and sell several pieces to smaller companies. You could try contacting the smaller houses and asking them for their suppliers' contact details and then try to sell it to them but I doubt such info would be easily given up. People like Slumberhouse and Tauer are very friendly though. There are some other perfumers who frequent the boards too, maybe try talking to them.
Or one of the big perfume companies like Firmenich: http://www.firmenich.com/ of Givaudan http://www.givaudan.com/ for that price you would probably have to fly over here and allow them to inspect it.
I would hazard a guess and say if you're serious about getting that sort of money you would have to come here to Europe since there are no perfume companies in South Africa that I know of.
Try posting in another forum like the Fragrance Industry forum
