    Default Is this really Mitsouko in parfum form?

    http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...fvi%3D1&_rdc=1

    In one of the pics you can see "parfum" printed on the bottom of the bottles. Seems like the listing should have a higher price if it's really Mitsouko extrait, no?

    Looks like the real deal to me.
    There's three days plus left on the auction - you would be amazed how many people bid at the last minute too sending the price right up. The seller has 100 % feedback and doesn't seem to be selling other perfumes....so if it were me, I would bid.
    Saying that, you have to consider that the bottles have been opened- you don't know the state of the perfume inside- stale or otherwise , if it's ever been refilled with something else or just EDP etc...the 'what if' list goes on but it's a chance you take.
    You just have to decide how much it is worth to you when you bid and leave it at that. These bottles are somewhat worth less than two similar sealed parfum bottles with boxes IMHO.
    Just my two cents.

    Their color looks good. I bought a similar bottle last year, knowing its liquid had aged to a dark amber brown, but also knowing the bottle was sealed. I don't regret it. Even “turned” Mitsouko is superior to a lot of other frags.

    By looking at the seller's other items, you can see that this seller is not a perfume specialist and, for that reason, might not know what these bottles are worth, but the bidders will, and there will be a whole lot of sniping and last-minute bidding. My guess is that the winning bid will be for much more than you see here. If you want to know what Mitsouko is bringing on the ebay market do an advanced search, checking only the "completed listings" box, and you can use those figures to decide whether it's worth it to you or not.

    They do look legit. I have one exactly like them.

    I have bid on no reserve "bargins" many, many times for Guerlain extraits only to find them selling for astronomical prices in the last few minutes. Too good to be true usually is.
