    Default Massive Patou Pour Homme 3 oz bottle dump on ebay !

    Just noticed that an apparently reliable seller there has sold 13 and has more than 10 bottles for sale (at a hair under $300 each). Let the insanity begin! LOL.

    My 90ml from many years back is still full so will leave those for others who might be inclined.

    Let's see if the quality of the products from the "perfumer re-enactors" is going up.

    Is it good? Check.
    Is it real good? Check.
    Is it too good to be true? Check.

    Twenty-three bottles? I leave you to your own conclusions.

    I think it looks legit. The seller accepts returns, and I have some Patou PH. If it doesn't check out, I'll just send it back.

    Me neither. The only 3oz I see is a tester of the after-shave spray.

    One person bought one, and 3 days later bought another, must have been OK to him. If you can return it, not much risk, just hassle.

    Is $300 for 3oz a good deal for Patou pour Homme? I've seen this on ebay for a couple months now.

    Historically, it's not a bad price. The 2oz bottles have gone for >$300, although since this guy posted his auction, it looks like he's brought the prices down some. A 2oz splash bottle went for $215. Other 3oz bottles auctioned for $268 and $298.

    Compared to what you got, however, it's a terrible price.

    As far as I know, 3oz spray bottle of Patou PH is not sealed the way most modern bottles are, i.e. you can unscrew the top. So even if it smells right, there is still a chance that the juice might have been tempered with.

    I'm glad I have a bottle, but I don't think I need a backup at this point or ever. I never wear it (partly because it's so costly to replace).

    Also, I don't truly appreciate PPH until the heart and basenotes, which I think are pretty amazing. The top notes aren't that great to me, certainly not worth the price. But that drydown...

    I was surprised that this seller disclosed having that many bottles. If I had been interested in buying it at around that level, I would now wait for some bottles to appear on the sales/swap boards. Supply and demand !

    I noticed this listing on ebay too. I really think they are legit. I see some basenoters have bought from this guy too.
    The weird thing is about 6 months ago parfum1.com had these same 3 oz bottles for around $90 or so. I was able to get a few but they sold out quickly. I have no doubt that my bottles are legit. I have no idea where parfum1 got them from either.

    Also I've seen this 3 oz bottle sell for as much as $500 on ebay auctions in the past.

    I bought from this seller and it was an excellent experience. The juice, IMHO, is amazing and worth every cent. A high price, sure, but average in today's world of niche and rare frags. The juice is anything but average. I'm glad I got it.

    That's not really that great a deal.

    Also, I heard Patou Pour Homme smells like Bijan Men, which goes for 1/10th of the price.

    I've sampled PPH as well as the original Bijan for men, and there are similarities but PPH is softer/smoother in the base. I'm surprised that PPH is so popular on BN, where there is a lot more hype for the frags of specific companies or frags that are much more "edgy" than PPH. Why do BNers go nuts over PPH but show little interest in vintage Bijan for men, vintage Ferre for men, or others that have similar qualities and can still be found for very little on ebay (if you have some patience)? No idea !

    LOL

    Yeah, that smoky quality in the classic masculines is something you just don't get nowadays. It's a bit politically incorrect to list tobacco as a note, much less smell like smoke - of any kind.

    PS - signed up for a split! I'm hedging my bets on this one.

    I just use my phone app. Then if it's something I want no matter what, place a somewhat large bid. It'll default to the price just over the last bidder.

    Man, I'd like to try this one...I just don't have $300 laying around.

    One additional comment: for a while (maybe 3 weeks), this seller upped the price to $339. Only one person bit, so it went back to $299. This seems to be roughly the upper limit.

    10 ml bottles show up from time to time as well, priced from $70 to $125.

    The same bottles were selling for as much as $800 before this guy came across a case. Someone probably found it around the 9th arrondissement in Paris.

    Bijan for Men is cheap and rough. It's as far away from Patou pour Homme as a hawk from the moon.


    _________



    There are some great fragrances out there but I haven't found anything that approximates the deftness of touch and genius of compositional balance of Patou pour Homme.

    Patou pour Homme is made for those who have already have confidence. It probably won't go over well with the "I need pussy and compliments" crowd that pervades this site.

    I think I'm addicted. I came home and put it on again tonight. Count down to that amazing drydown...

    The unapologetic smokiness reminds me a bit of Ambrarem. They are not similar fragrances, as Patou Pour Homme is a slow-build, slow-burn affair whereas Ambrarem gives you everything it's got right away. And the smoke of Ambrarem is more angular--a harsher white smoke compared to an opulent brown smoke. But I think the mood that would have me reaching for one would also reach for the other.

    How silly is it that my points of reference for classics like PpH are contemporary esoterics? Oh well. That's the way my cookie crumbled.

    My suspicions are that speculators, like everybody else, are falling on hard times. Somebody with a big stash needed a bit of cash. One of the bright sides of the economy, I suppose.

    I wasn't going to purchase a bottle as I have bought and sold 3-4 over the years...never being able to secure one that the top notes hadn't burned off already (as the bottles out on the market today are at least twenty years old). This one magically has that amazing hot pepper top notes. I got lucky, I guess.

    Awesome! Not wishing to be bound by theory [as they say in patents], I'm wondering if it's because the bottle format is a later one, meaning this was one of the most recent runs. That, plus (most likely) well-kept.

    Missing or diminished topnotes is a really common blemish of vintage frags. My NIB, authentic D&G By Man has such a lifeless start, I almost regret its authenticity, and wonder if the ones with the wrong colored caps are better. Frankly, a well-done re-creation (fake seems so ungrateful) would be preferable if it got the entire fragrance right.

    Also, the seller had another one. Our split is so back on!
    Great news!

    Starting to wonder if the decant i had was off or something. It really was nothing special, may as well have been Lauder for Men or any number of other 80s frags. I guess i need to sample again.
