    Angry CHANEL "BOIS NOIR" on eBay - Auction starts at 849 USD

    Insane? or really worth the price?
    i like Egoiste Concentree a lot and ready to spend some money on it, but is the BOIS NOIR similar to EC?

    No clue. It's Ebay, where anything goes.

    The price is crazy because finding a bottle of Bois Nior is like an Elvis or 2Pac sighting or Nead Nitram posting in the forum. It was only available for 1 year in 1987 and is claimed to put Egoiste to absolute shame.


    The Perfumed Court actually has samples of this mythical fragrance.

    If the person is selling it for that price he/she must know how badly someone must want it.

    Supply and demand. I have a sealed flacon of the original green bottle Vintage Tabarome that I was offered over $1800.00 for. Wouldn't sell it though.

    Mythical it is but Bois Noir was a commercial failure. It was re-released as Egoiste (not the EDT concentree) after a light reformulation. Let's put it this way: BN was a prototype for the more successful Egoiste. Claiming that it put Egoiste to shame is like rewriting history.

    I suppose you could look on it as an investment, but I would never spend that much on a scent for wearing unless I had tried it first. I was looking for a bottle of Dior Cologne Blanche, and bowed out on Ebay because the prices are insane.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Never smelled BN but I would be extremely hesitant to drop $850 on a 25 year old fragrance, especially without smelling it first.

    Bois Noir is one of the rarest and most sort
    after fragrances out there - it's legendary.
    It's certaintly worth the 850 dollars, and
    I'm sure he would have had a winning bid
    above 850 dollars, if he had listed it at a
    much lower starting price.
    I'll reckon he'll get no bids with this price.

    It very rarely comes up for sale, so it's probably to be expected that a sealed box / bottle will command a high premium. Of course, anyone who pays that price is paying for the scarcity of the item more than the actual quality of the fragrance, although I don't doubt that it's extremely good...

    He actually have two bottles for sale;
    one splash and one spray.

    It will be interesting to see how these
    auctions turn out.

    It is certainly true that Bois Noir is a rare, highly coveted fragrance. Damn. That starting price is so high.

    Thank you!

    I am tempted, believe you me, but,
    it's simply too expensive.
    If I am ever to buy a bottle this
    expensive, I need to sniff it first.
    Even though it has been boxed,
    chances are, that it has gone bad.

    But, again; damn I'm tempted!

    I remember in your vid you said you'd be willing to cough up $500 for Bois Noir haha, but ya your right, the price is crazy. I've heard from a select few that this fragrance is something special but only people with a "mature" nose will be able to appreciate it's beauty. I don't think a bottle of Bois Noir has been up for sale in a few years, even on ebay.

    Whoever gets it, will have one of the most highly prized, sought after fragrances known. Congrats to whoever gets it LOL.

    I wouldnt mind ordering a sample just to say I've gotten to try this fragrance.

    Not more?! I can't remember what I said in the video.
    But, I'd be willing to pay waaay more than 500, if I
    had the option to sniff it before buying.

    I have an 8ml decant. It is a solid fragrance that smells very good but I prefer Egoiste, to be honest.

    haha, maybe order a sample from TPC? Or did you mean from the actual bottle the guy is selling? Either way, this certainly would be a gem to have.

    Agree with argument, that seller could easily sell it higher than 850, if the starting point would be at let say 200 USD

    Oh and for the record.....Perfumed Court has raised the price on Bois Noir dramatically since last Nov when I bought mine. Then it was 65.99 for 8ml, now it's 144.99. I think it was out of stock for a while, then they found some more.

    I coulda swore they had the 15ml for $129 this morning.

    Awesome!

    The sealed box is the safer of the 2 bottles they have up for sale since the splash has been used and therefore exposed to air.

    What are you willing to pay if the other bidders start rolling in?

    Holy crap, I just found this thread? LOL. Wow, never thought I would see BN on Ebay! New and sealed? Whoa. LGD..lol..if somehow I ever got a real steal on that..as in like..dirt cheap or something LOL, ya right, I would totally just give it to you!(well, at least half!) LOL. Congrats to all who can afford it! Good luck to all who end up bidding! Who ever wins should send Duckie a little tiny, tiny dab though! Just a wee, wee tiny one??..so he can smell it and review it!

    I have vintage egoiste edt, current edt, just got my cologne concentree today, and have a sample of Bois Noir from the perfumed court. I REALLY wouldnt waste your money on the Bois Noir, as the Cologne Concentree puts its brothers to much shame. The concentree is much easier to find and is MUCH cheaper. Vintage EDT is most similar to Bois Noir IMO. Good luck bidding if you have to have the Bois Noir though, its still a solid frag!
