    Default Best fragrance deal ever?

    So, I Am a diehard YSL fan, and pretty much buy whatever they put out. The one that I have wanted forever but have been unable to find for a reasonable price was Kouros Fraicheur. So last week I found one on eBay with an opening bid of 9.99. I bid up to $123.45 and wound up getting it for $46 shipped! I'm pretty stoked. I was slightly concerned the seller would flake, but I got notice this morning that it's in the mail and on its way. Yay!

    What's the best deal you've gotten lately on a hard to find fragrance? I'm curious if I am entitled to bragging rights or if this is a common occurrence. :-)

    I once got Bel Ami, Habit Rouge, Kouros, Terre d'Hermes and Bvlgari Black, all in full-size bottles, for like $80 total. That was in a cologne shop in Tennessee about two years ago. They were all shop testers, but mostly full!

    I'm sure I read something the other day about somebody getting a bottle of RL Polo for $9.99. Ok, not hard to find, but as a deal that's got to take some beating?!

    I need to check out that store!! I keep hearing about it. I'd definitely pay a buck to try out Horizon, despite the marine notes...

    I recently scored a big ass 200ml splash of Kouros from the ebay for about $.20/ml. THAT was a great one!

    However... probably the best luck I had was scoring a used 100ml bottle of Vermeil for Men for $5 and maybe another 5 for shipping. It was right up my alley and blew me away, so I googled and found 3 bottles available at discount and with coupon etc. from the scented monkey for $11 each all-in. I think you'd pay more for a glass of water at dizzknee world. I'm old school, enjoy Vermeil (happens to be sotd), and THAT is my best deal EVER!

    Some shy away from ebay and I understand why. But I don't.

    So far it has been at Dollar Tree in Maryland, Virginia, Dallas Tx. They had about 50 of them next to the "Our Version Of" crap. I had 4 of them in my hand but put 3 back after i realized it was crazy to buy that many. Sticker on the bottom is for $27. Its worth at least $1 i think.

    All these deals put my normal purchases to shame. I did end up swapping bottles with a friend who only paid $48 for Pure Havane from Thierry Mugler's website with a coupon.
