    Yes, so long as you buy from Amazon directly (it will say "sold and shipped by Amazon" or something to that affect.)

    The issue with Amazon is 3rd party sellers who sell THROUGH Amazon. Amazon itself is 100% legit.

    Absolutely correct.

    Also be wary when it says 'fulfilled by Amazon' but the seller is not Amazon. This just means Amazon are facilitating the logistics and there is no check for authenticity.

    No way of knowing with either. Click on the company name to see feedback. Remember that the actual product reviews have no relation to the seller as whomever is cheapest takes ownership of the product page.

    There's always a risk. Are willing to take it, is the question.

    Agreed! There is not a company that I would trust more than Amazon in the UK. Their whole ethos revolves around customer service, even at the expense of profit. Being in business Amazon are a nightmare because they have no loyalty to brands or respect for thei SRPs, they simple trash pricing to always be the cheapest, but as a consumer they are a dream!!

    I'm unfamiliar with both Tuccini and BestPrice. It looks like sears.com has Eau D`Ete Summer Edition too and they have a solid online reputation.

    Sears has a marketplace now just like Amazon does though, so I think you still gotta be careful there. Maybe Sears Marketplace has a better reputation than Amazon does though, I don't know.

    Research the sellers you're thinking of buying from trough amazon. Google the name of the seller, look for reviews and see what comes up. If they're known for selling fakes, poor customer service, etc, people are going to be talking. That's what I do when I'm not sure about a place.

    I've bought probably 30 or so bottles from Amazon and have never gotten a fake. I know which sellers on Amazon are trustworthy.

    Exactly. Amazon does have sellers who are not quite affiliated with Amazon. Like eBay sellers, they just use Amazon as a way to get their product out there.

    I've bought Creeds and designer bottles through Amazon and never had a problem. With the money I've saved even if I get a bad one I'm ahead of the game. I do try to always buy from the store with the highest satisfaction rating even if it's a couple dollars more.

    tuccini is reliable. Ive bought from them several times through amazon. Actually I would buy that frag from either company. You dont have to worry about fakes as much from amazon as with ebay.

    As others have stated, if the seller is Amazon & not a 3rd Party you should be fine. I've never encountered a fake this way & even if you felt like you did, their customer service is very good, so you shouldnt have a problem with a return.
