    Default Ambre Precieux at Overstock.com

    Wondering you guys think this looks legit or not? Smelled this at Scent Bar today and loved it but this Overstock.com bottle looks different to me with the crosshatching? Is this a great deal or a risk?

    Looks fine to me. Looks like old bottle. Seems like a good price to me.

    Trying to decide if I should snap it up, or wait, because I have seen some discount shops online with a price just a few dollars more and I just spent $150 at Scent Bar today, shy to spend any more money on perfume for a bit, but that is a GREAT price on something I really loved.

    I'm noticing Overstock.com's prices are REALLY great for Creed and other high end perfumes.

    Excellent price. Goes for $130 in Paris.

    I've purchased some fragrances from Overstock - my Annick Goutal Myhrre Ardente and Cartier Santos Concentree - come to mind - and I'm sure that they offer the genuine article in very good condition. However, I find their return policy for fragrances rather restrictive and I think long and hard about whether I want to take the risk of being stuck with something that might not be exactly as advertised. They suffer in being informative because their inquiry respondents are generalists who are not very knowledgeable about fragrances in particular.

    As far as the picture of the vintage bottle, I've called them for assurance that the fragrance would be exactly as pictured, and they would NOT give me that assurance. That, coupled with their restrictive return policy, has caused me to pass up many fragrances that I ordinarily would purchase from them.

    Overstock.com doesn't sell all the products itself. In fact, I'd wager they don't sell any products themselves and are just a marketplace for different sellers in their network. Until and unless I know whom am I dealing with directly, I'd be wary of purchasing anything from there.

    Thanks for the help guys! Because the difference between Overstock and the other major online discount sellers is only a few dollars I'm going to wait until I'm really ready to purchase it. Thanks guys!

    Bought up two of them and they're the newer bottle (with the screw-on atomizer) - the jeweled cap had separated into two pieces on both bottles - nothing a touch of super glue didn't fix easily. Paid $178 for the two and I'm now knee-deep in my favorite amber I'll definitely be going back to check on other frags - fantastic savings!
