    Well, the 1oz bottles might be. I don't think it would be very profitable to fake such small sizes. More likely, it's old stock.

    He has 100% feedback rating, and based on his selling history it seems like he just got a bunch of creeds from say a Neiman Marcus liquidation or something, and he didn't know what they were worth. If you see on his history, someone purchased an MI from him and gave him a good rating.

    Hmmmm. Should I?

    There's a tremendous surplus of Creed products out there and he probably just wants to move the things fast.

    They exist, but the concern over fake Creeds is way overblown and they're actually imitated far less than many other designer brands.

    I got one of his bottles. He's charging what others charge for a small decant, with free shipping, and I can always ruin his 100% positive feedback rating and avail myself of ebay buyer protection if it's fake.

    I'm thinking it's either fake or REALLY old dead stock. I'd stay away.

    I just looked a bit deeper into his profile, he sells dead stock of just about everything from shoes, to DVDs, to cuff links, etc. Probably legit, but I'd still deal with caution.

    Risky but as long as you are covered if proven to be not what you expect - then why not?

    I googled images for Rive Gauche spray and the container looks the same.

    The seller has no negatives in 34 pages of seller feedback. That says something about the seller.

    Default Just got a bottle of vintage Aramis from Ebay. it's so good

    So I tried Aramis at bloomingdales and whoof that's strong and pretty intolerable. Nose burning, somewhat synthetic and pretty offensive.

    But I just got a bottle of aged Aramis from Ebay. As you can see in the picture, the juice has turned very dark brown and opaque over time. This one smells much better though. It's lighter, smoother, less pungent, more natural and it has more depth. It still has that Aramis character and smell, but in a much classier and more tolerable way.

    Highly recommended.

    P.S. I see why Aramis is so highly praised. It's masculine, but unique. It's not really leather (although there is leather in it). Not really woody either (although there's wood in it). It's like L'eau D'Issey in the sense that you can't reduce to any one or two notes because it's its own unique smell.

    Wow, that does look dark. I have a current EdT which I find very smooth and refined. Still potent.

    Do you know how old your bottle is?

    Default Re: Just got a bottle of vintage Aramis from Ebay. it's so good

    Interesting. It might be lighter because it's an EDC (if the word "cologne" on the bottle represents the actual concentration). The current version is an EDT.

    Aramis smells fabulous in it's current formulation, IMO. Have worn it intermitantly since 1967 (got it even before its' faux tortoise shell packaging!).

    My favourite of the Aramis range is JHL.

    The current Aramis is very strong, but dries down nicely - although I do seem to remember the Aramis of days gone by having more of a rose to it somewhere in there.

    I'm not sure how old it is, but it must be pretty old to have changed color so drastically.
