    Default Vintage Santos De Cartier..to Ebay or not to Ebay..that is the question..

    I have never been burned by ebay...never bought much from there either. I have been looking for original Santos De Cartier cologne. I have sampled the newer ones and it just does not smell the same. Is there anywhere one goes...some special cologne old ye magic shoppe I don't know about to find things...it is not expensive on ebay...unlike Gucci Nobile which is outrageous...just don't like ebay. Suggestions on where to find this stuff?

    You can maybe able to find a decant on the Crystal Flacon. Just Google it, it's a forum of people that sell samples and decants of frags, but the largest decant is going to be 10ml which is decent size.

    Ebay is a great place. I've bought over 50 bottles there all "items as described".

    If i were after this stuff, i would buy here

    That is used..only 1/4 bottle....shipping is almost $18 from Dubai....if I go Ebay it will be NIB and from the US...much less hassle.

    Ok, but if you buy a used bottle, you more likely get the right stuff. And one can tell from that picture (vs. some stock photo) that it's vintage.

    update: here is a vintage from U.S. and nib full bottle (as i write this the seller has 1 left, 13 sold)

    This Santos Vintage is imo a wonderful fragrance. For some reason i don't like Concentree version but do like this a lot.
