    Default Major ebay defrag: is it one of us?

    I saw this auction:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lot-Fendi-An...item23218f2c78

    Then I saw that this person listed a bunch of other lots that are similar. I immediately thought, "that must be a BNer!" LOL.

    The post office here has made it clear that we can't ship frag bottles internationally because it is always air mail. Domestically we can ship parcel post which is by ground.

    Yes, definitely one of us. And the prices aren't bad, yet. Nice collection of Dior fragrances, someone can build a collection in an instant from these sales. Too bad he's not shipping international..

    I've been wearing Burberry Brit Limited Edition lately and really loving it. It's like Brit became something from Comme des Garšons Incense Series. If anyone is looking at this lot of fragrances and wondering about Limited Edition Brit, I can tell you that it's good stuff (and it's still not in the Basenotes directory).

    I'm impressed with the one that's got all the a*men flankers, though it's significantly more expensive than the other listings...

    He lists Pure Malt/Havane as "very rare and hard to find", if he is a BN'er he hasn't visited the forums in a while.

    Except for the fact you need to have something like 500 posts to even list your items for sale on basenotes.

    Oh, and you have to have been a BN member for 1 year too. I had been lurking for years, reading and learning from things members were sharing... but I didn't make an account till I found out I couldn't sell anything on the sales forum. I guess I wasn't much of a sharer... plus I thought I would sounds like an idiot if I didn't know what I was talking about... so I lurked and learned.

    Just looked at his listings, there are some really good ones in there!

    Gucci Rush alone could fetch them way more than the current bid for the lot it's in among the other rare ones up for sale.

    Okie dokie, Auntie Knit admits curiosity got to her and I messaged the seller to ask if he was a member here. If he answers, I'll share.

    I dunno why but it's kinda sad to see someone selling off their collection. I can't imagine they just magically lost all interest in fragrance, is probably a financial issue.

    Anyway, I wish the seller the best of luck and I hope he gets a fair price for all his juice, that is (was) a very well curated collection.

    Not enough judging by one of his previous auctions.

    I could see the others going for reletive bargains, other than mugler though.

    you don't have to have both, you have to have 1 qualification from those listed

    Those are some really nice packages though, obviously they liked falnkers.

    I feel bad that someone has to sell off their collection like that. I'm sure it is for a good reason, though.

    I would have to assume they are a Basenoter and just don't have the time or energy to sell the bottles individually. It sure is a heck of a collection !
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    Please PM me !

    Curious that he's selling them in these massive lots, as I suspect that selling them individually would net him more money.

    He must really want to be quit of this hobby in a way that's clean, quick and involves as little personal fuss as possible.


    Having said that, you gotta wonder what few things he's decided to keep.
    Sort of like one of those hypothetical BN threads being lived out in real life.
