    Question Buying fragrances at a flea market

    Big flea market coming up by the Giants/Jets stadium in NJ. You think it's safe to buy fragrances there? Big chance of fakes? Did anyone end up getting burnt on a purchase from a big flea market? Share your experiences, good or bad.

    I have bought vintage fragrances (used, generally) at flea markets, and they've been okay.

    But as for current fragrances, there are vast numbers of counterfeits being sold at flea markets, and I would not trust them. Apart from the fact that you wouldn't be able to get a refund, consider what ingredients the fakes may contain that you'd be spraying on your skin!

    Never tried it, but almost tempted to do so.
