    Default Post eBay Fragrance Seller Feedback here!

    If you have purchased fragrances from eBay, please post your feedback here. Try to include a link to the actual seller if possible. I know eBay has their own feedback system, but Basenoters are more likely to pick up on fake fragrances compared to the general public.

    If you're a member of Basenotes, feel free to mention yourself.

    Please post only information and feedback about eBay sellers here. If you have any questions or want to say something off-topic, please start a new thread. Thanks.

    Creedirect

    The Good

    GIT is Good Quality (not stale)
    Very good price

    The Bad

    It was a tester

    My Verdict

    Poor People Take What Deals We Get; Good Buy

    Might depend on which market they are aimed at? I have some Guerlain packages with arabic writing on them, and they are absolutely 100% genuine. Grey market, I suppose.

    I'm having a problem with seller Legacy170 of Legacy Perfumes Plus. I can't proove it of course. Will probably have to eat the $100. I think the bottle I got was heat damaged or old or both. I am trying to get him to honor his money back offer on his website but it says it must be unused. It's a problem that will keep me off Ebay for a while, if nothing else.

    Fashion Scents

    I recently purchased Marc Jacobs - Marc Jacobs and Hugo Boss - Hugo (5oz tester, w/ original cap and bottle, also came in original box labelled tester) from this store. Both were genuine, as described and excellent deals. They shipped them out within 48 hours as well. Overall 10/10.

    High Trends
    http://stores.ebay.com/High-Trends_W...Q3amesstQQtZkm
    I purchased a couple more from these guys, and received my package as promised by FedEx tracking service. Their shipping deals are the best, $6.95 for the first item and then ONLY $1 each additional item. So you could buy 10 gift sets and only pay $16 in shipping. Some of their deals are amazing too. High trends is #1 in my ebay frag list.

    I had a dreadful experience with Legacy170 on Ebay.He admitted, after the fact, Violette Precieuse is 5 years old. Of course he won't refund my money just because it smells like turpentine. $123.00 down the drain.

    I have had very good luck buying samples and decants from Fragrant Fripperies. Very nice and always extra samples.

    I just purchased from 4realdiscount. *4realdiscount has a fragrance store on eBay. The order shipped quickly and I am happy with what I got. *So I just placed another order.

    I guess I should mention what I ordered. I ordered 20 sample vials of Guess Men (the kind that come on the cardboard backer). This is a 1991 vintage fragrance, and it seems to be in good condition.

    Service and product are absolutely top-notch, payment to my door in less than 2 days. Plus each decant was presented very nicely with some free samples. Highly recommended.

    My favorite Ebay seller is lisalaw. she is awesome. Such a nice lady and her service is amazing.

    DrBubba: I have dealt with FragranceExpress and I was very happy with them. I actually found one of their items on www.ubid.com cheaper than on ebay.

    Has anyone dealt with ebay seller bddllc?
    I bought a bottle of new Chanel COCO edp from this seller before noticing the feedback, which listed more than several accusations of fake perfumes (and a fake Coach wallet). His feedback approval is 96 %.
    http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAP...04654&frm=1883
    When I got my bottle it was hard to tell if it was fake. There were a few anomalies, but not much more than you'd expect (1. the black and gold foil label on the neck was loose and coming off. It turns out there were accidentally 2 neck labels put on, and the top one was ungluing 2. the label on the front of the bottle wasn't centered well).
    I don't have another sample to compare it to, but because of my concern over it, while it seems to smell fairly close to COCO, it doesn't seem as rich or deep as I remember my sample being (which the edp should be). But you know how difficult it is to tell when a fragrance is *fairly* close. Are fakes usually pretty obvious? I can't say I'm real excited about the spray I got, and I remember how rich and full the sample was. Am I imagining things?
    Any thoughts on this seller? Anybody use him ? I haven't left any feedback or contacted him yet about my bottle.

    Angry Re: Post eBay Fragrance Seller Feedback here!

    what would you do in my place? I bought pefume from German Ebayer dry-hannover, paid for it and never received the goods, now I see there was a negative feedback from last week and the seller has just removed it - didn´t know it is possible. Sure he has not responded to tens of my e-mails, seems lost agenda.

    Received my order very quickly. Too bad both fragrances are fakes. The Escada Ibiza Hippie was detectable to me almost immediately--the rim of the bottle gave it away. The Lacoste Touch of Pink is a better fake but the juice gives it away.

    Very disappointed. Emailed seller and informed them I would be returning the items.

    update: returned items and they gave me full refund. am going to email them to ask that they pay the return shipping costs as well.

    After I won the item for aprx $18 including her shipping and handling charges, seller reported item as 'Broken or Stolen' to circumvent eBay's Reserve Fee Policy.

    She had over a dozen identical items in her store.

    eBay did nothing to correct situation. *And somehow she maintains a 99.9% satisfaction rate.

    Wow, I did buy something from Violetta, and it went fine. She did seem fairly aggressive, to be sure, and began sending some spam after the sale.

    I have also run into this 'Broken or Stolen' tactic of cancelling a sale from another vendor, when I was trying to buy Live Jazz. A fishy move, indeed.

    I've also noticed that some vendors negotiate away negative feedback ("mutally agreed..") - I assume they've done a refund, sent something extra, or something like that. This may be an OK vendor, but when I see a lot of these, I'd wonder. I tend to think this is usually "weasel wording" in the listing that caused a misunderstanding.

    I must be the poster child for Ebay... I've built most of my collection from it, and have had few problems, knock on formica. I was going to trot out my list of fave vendors, but I see that all of them have at least some bad feedback, so I guess I'm leading a charmed life.

    Instead, I'll list some things I do, in case they may be helpful to you (some will seem obvious, no doubt):

    I tend to read every word of a listing like a lawyer, and look for highest feedback. I also read the feedback itself - sometimes it's surprising what you find even in people with high feedback. Sometimes the one bad thing out of 400 good ones will be enough to give you pause! Yes, it takes a little longer.

    Another idea... when I'm not sure about a vendor, I'll often ask them a question, even if I don't really have one - I'm simply trying to get the vendor talking to assess their responsiveness, personality, attitude, etc. For instance, if you ask something that would normally elicit a detailed reply, and they give you a 2-word brusque answer, that's one warning sign. A good answer is no guarantee, but it gives me more confidence.

    I could be wrong, but I think that our colleagues in non-U.S. nations seem to be having more trouble with Ebay. I would guess that international shipping adds layers of complexity that may tend to cause more problems. Sadly, no suggestion there.

    Having said that, I've slowed down in my Ebay buying - I now have everything good that's cheap. I guess my timing is good, what with Ebay complaints on the rise, big time.

    Fragrant fripperies and dragonfly scent me, and I'll add mikvic who I recently shopped with. There are a few more, I just wish I could remember all the fine ebay'ers who have sold me nice things. I don't shop there a whole lot, but from time to time, I get on there and do some buying. Some were definitely bad, but there is some good advice here and, like you all, I learned to read between the lines on feedback, etc. Most of the time I use online discount stores for full sizes, but not always.

    Edit: Got my scent from pumpkinred, two weeks later, yeah! First time an ebay seller was thrown off who actually followed through and sent me the item I paid for. She/he did seem good, excellent feedback and all.

    pumpkinred was my first experience on ebay and not a good one. Shipped very slowly, listed me as non-paying even though the problem was hers in that I had paid, but she got kicked off and therefore wasn't checking her paypal, and then never sent the items that I paid for. I never recieved any strikes as a result of this but have alerts in my mailbox that I can't get rid of because action is required and she can't/won't respond. Grrr... This of course causes me no problems, but irritates me.
    Great experiences with Serendipity Scents, Dragonfly Scent Me, and a seller called gemmaeden. She currently has nothing for sale, and did ship a little slowly but the product (ten SL's) was top notch, she has great communication, great packaging, and is obviously a kindred spirit of the perfume obsessed.
    I also just ordered from mikvik and am awaiting my items. Glad to hear positives from fellow members.

    You make a good suggestion here. Think about it! when you go into a boutique to seek out new fragrances, you have this interaction with someone eye-to-eye and you get a 'sense' about the person. There's something in this suggestion to getting something from the seller up-front.
    Another great suggestion earlier, is to go to toolhaus . org and see in a condensed form all the negative feedback on a seller. Wow. I took a look at those posted for a few of the sellers mentioned in this thread. The vulgar retorts from sellers with negative feedback was enough to keep me out of their stores. I don't care if they have a billion positives....

    Both mentioned above but I have had several great transactions with Fragrant Fripperies and You Smell Marvelous on ebay. AAA+++ all the way... and always extra samples... which is dangerous and lovely at the same time. *8-)

    I just stick with high volume sellers on ebay and I buy only from those with whom I've carried out transactions in the past. I don't mind an extra $2-$3 to ensure the authenticity of the fragrance.

    Hi All,

    I had a bad experiance with aroma*aura. Won a 4oz bottle of GIT. When it came there was no date on the back of the box. The juice was way off as if it had gone bad or the oils had seperated. Even though the listing said all sales final he agreed to take the bottle back and refund my money after being somewhat verbally abusive in his e-mail to me. I sent it back but sent it requiring his signature so he couldn't say he never recieved it therefore no refund. He kept saying he would pick it up at the post office but as far as I know he never did. He did refund my money but it took alot of constant non angry neutral language e-mail on my part to cagole him into completing our transaction. As far as I know the fragarence will be returned to me by the postoffice if it goes unclaimed. Got my refund so I left posative post with just a thankyou on it.

    I'm sorry, but I don't really understand why you left a positive. eBay's feedback is there to alert other buyers to such things as a seller peddling fake perfume.

    I have had several very positive experiences on ebay with the following sellers:

    lisalaw - great selection, most notably: Lutens, Malle, Tonatto, Aqaba, Different Company, Il Profumo, Mecheri, Les Nereides, Mazzolari, Micallef, and many others. Very good email communication, advice, free samples with order, and fast shipping.

    dbash1 - great prices on Tonatto and Carthusia, fast shipping. Apparently had a store and is now selling off stock.

    786hoodas - terrible name, but great selection of Creed, almost every one of them. Fast shipping, generous sample vials, about the same size as the ones from Creed.

    Excellent to do business with are Terrie's Temptations, Pinks Pharm and Fragrant Fripperies. Of course, Dragonfly Scent Me... All highly recommended!

    Avoid at all cost DONICA'S TREASURES. She sold me a rancid Aimez Moi, smells like spoiled maple syrup. She didn't even bother to wipe the grime off the bottle before she sent out.
