Ok so this is a 25 ur old bottle of 4oz. Ice Blue Aqua Velva cooling after shave. Stinks right? That's what I thought too when I was 10 and got it for Christmas. That's not the mysterious part. I have got to get rid of this bottle once and for all. I threw this bottle away way back in 1991 when I was in high school. Since then I have tossed it about 8 or 9 more times. Somehow mysteriously it reappears when I move and unpack, or just shows up in a drawer someplace. For years I thought I was losing my mind. So, earlier this year I flew to Atlanta to visit my sister and I took the bottle with me. I once again threw this bottle away in a business dumpster. Ill be darned if I didn't find this forsaken bottle on back of my dresser under my Bears hat. This is no joke people. I don't know if it is bad luck or good luck. I use to share it in jr high when I kept it in my gym locker. One friend who used it sometimes has since died. Don't know if that has anything to do with it but a friend guessed that may be it. I dont know. All I know is its freaking my wife out and creaping me out as well. Its not scary, just freaky. She has tossed it a few times for me too so I could prove to her I'm not going crazy. The bottle has a manufacture stamp on bottom of 0135. That how I know it is the same bottle. I thought that some scientific or paranormal activity researcher out there may be interested in this long living old Cologne. If I dont sell it I plan to destroy the bottle and hope it stays gone for good. In talking with a woman, who is a paranormal investigator, she suggested I list it on here for scientific purposes for studies or just to collect. So here I am. After this last trashing in Georgia I know something weird is going on. Again, in no way shape or form am I saying for sure that it is haunted, has a ghost or anything paranormal. I don't know for sure and dont know much about that stuff. I have just speculated from my experience with it and had the paranormal give her advice. All I know for sure is that it won't go away. My dog is even afraid to go near my dresser where the bottle sits. To some this may be scary but I know to some it may be interesting. Please bid!
I will accept Paypal or cash. An immediate deposit of $500 is required through ebay. I understand the rest may take a day or two. Buyer will have 3 days from bid ending to complete the rest of payment either in cash or paypal. For obvious reasons there will be no returns on this Cologne. I priced this how I did because I really want a serious buyer who will take it for the serious nature that I am dealing with. It is my hope that some professional or collector may determine an answer as to why I have encountered such an ordeal with this simple 25 year old bottle. I will ship no longer than one day after payment in full. Please serious inquiries only. Email with questions. (I am willing to ship almost anywhere to be rid of this once and for all)

I have had some concerns about the bottle ending back up in my possession. I assure you I had the same wonder. Before i ever thought of listing I spoke to a professional paranormal investigator who led me to ebay to sell. She said that making a formal sale of the bottle would exchange or "release" the bottle to the person I make the formal exchange with. That it will break my connection entirely. It was her suggestion that I list it here for sale as there are buyers out there who are interested in studying the behavior of particular items that have had the same effect that my cologne has. I hope that answers any questions. If for any reason I came across the bottle again, I would contact buyer immediately for a full refund. Hopefully this will ease any skepticism about bidding. All I have heard and read confirms her theory about the cologne being gone from me once and for all after sale. Basically I am giving it permission to leave I suppose. Thank you.
