    Default Fragrance eBay Ban

    So I was browsing perfume on eBay, and when I clicked on a listing for Kenzo Love & Peace I got this message..

    Unfortunately, access to this particular listing or item has been blocked due to a Paris commercial court decision that bans trade of certain authentic perfumes and cosmetic products on eBay because of French selective distribution laws. eBay is appealing this ruling but is nevertheless required to enforce it. We are blocking your viewing in an effort to comply with this court decision. Regrettably, in some cases, we may prevent users from accessing items that are not within the scope of the decision because of limitations on existing technology.

    so are they saying that select fragrances won't be able to be purchased on eBay? That's incredibly frustrating considering eBay has some of the best fragrance deals

    edit: it seems like I can't view ANY fragrance listing on eBay, even those made and sold in the US!

    Hi HanuToYume
    No problems for me in the UK. Maybe it's just a Canadian thing?

    I can view listings just fine here in the USA, too. (I tried one for Kenzo Power.)

    Maybe try a different browser? I've had this message on one browser but no problems with a different one.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Has something changed here? We bought decanting supplies from ebay as late as last week, but now I cant go into any perfume related ebay sites due to the Paris law. - et norsk parfymeforum

    Well I don't know. It seems like we have a Dutch ip-adress, even though we are in Norway, and that might be the problem.
