    Question Snuff de Schiaparelli blind buy

    Buy or pass?

    Hello all! I am really fond of that little quirky bottle and some of reviews, yet the question still stands.

    Vintage? Definitely buy, a classic masculine, an aromatic tobacco, with a chypre base. But the prices I see on ebay are very high.

    I also don't know if there are recent, inferior versions - I think Schiaparelli perfumes are extinct, but who knows.

    Not familiar with the scent, but the bottle does look nice. Did you find it for a good price?

    Well, relatively affordable. Much cheaper than Amouage and other niche brands.

    If you decide to go for it, let us know what you think when you get it.

    Yup, it is vintage, and I am mostly sure there are no recent editions of this particular scent.

    Well, yes, I am almost ready for it and sure I'll share my impressions there's also some negotiations with the seller about stuff. The shipping is not that easy as I thought initially.

    Definitely go for it if you get it for decent price - which for me is under 1 euro per ml for vintage bottle with the pipe style cap on it.

    Well, my initial item is impossible to be bought now due to shipping restrictions from UK. And it seems like I have only one option here — a 100ml splash bottle with the pipe cap, but for like 250 USD. But, I believe, that is quite a lot now. I'll try to negotiate.
