    Default Does this seem legit to you guys?

    http://www.amazon.com/Chanel-Allure-...e+sport+chanel


    Cheapest version of any Chanel bottle I could find. However, I question how genuine the bottle is. The company selling it seems to have good reviews and sells multiple beauty products apart from fragrances.
    Hmmmm

    How come it's $30 less than anywhere else on the internet. Just seems sort of alarming to me considering Allure Homme Sport is known as being one of the most faked fragrances out there along with Le Male and 1 million.
    Plus, was considering this to be a gift for a family member would be dreadful if it was a fake.

    I generally have no issue buying from ebay and Amazon but Chanel is very commonly counterfeited. I would not buy it from a 3rd party seller on Amazon.

    That is an Amazon-seller. If you are going to buy from Amazon, make sure it is from Amazon directly.

    It seems ok.
    I also just bought from Amazon an Allure Edition Blanche 3.4 oz for a close similar price (55$) and everything went smooth.
    It turned out that *unboxed* versions are much more affordable than boxed ones. Nevertheless, the content is identical and they are not testers. Great buy, btw.
    "I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day". I don't want to miss that

    That seller ships from Hong Kong. They take returns, but would you want to return it to Hong Kong if there is a problem?

    Do not do it please! I never ever seen discounted Chanel fragrances and this price would look legit for 50ml but not for 100ml.

    I've been buying fragrances from eBay for years and have looked at several without buying on Amazon. In my experience if you see Hong Kong as the origin of the seller or as the shipped from location, STAY AWAY! Fortunately I've never been burned, but I know plenty who have .
