    It looks like a bargain right now but there are five bidders circling the bottle and 20 hours to go. The bottle looks like a Frapin bottle, at least to me.

    very low feedback, new ebay user and it's his first sale on ebay... Somewhat risky!

    You never really know if it has been exposed to light and/or heat for a period(s) of time. So, I'd suggest that you just buy a brand new bottle or from someone on the Basenotes Marketplace, who knows how to take care of his/her fragrances.

    Certainly looks legit, but as others have said, there is always the risk of poor storage/handling. That said, as to the price being too low... It is already at $71, and almost a full day to go... My guess is it will sell at the market clearing price for the item when all is said and done, so there is no yellow flag on price, IMO.

    A lot of times, if it seems too good to be true it probably is. Save the $71 bucks bro, and get a new one.

    i say its not legit, because anyone who has L'Humaniste would never give it away.

    I think the seller is not doing anyone any favours by posting a pic that looks stolen from an ad campaign rather than being the actual bottle sold. The price is low because the auctioneer is probably expecting more bids. There's still a long time left.

    It's a pretty nice fragrance. I agree you're better off buying it off a BNer as the eBay item is not turning out to be a great bargain, considering the risks.

    Exactly...prices often double in the last few hours of an auction. It's just that with fragrances, so many items listed are buy it now only, so actual auctions look like deceivingly good deals until the last day.
