    Default Did I get burned on this bottle of Carolina Herrera CH Men ?

    I love this fragrance, CH Men by Carolina Herrera.

    I purchased a bottle from a reputible dealer on Ebay. Their feedback exceeded 20,000, and was 99.7%. I figured I was safe. The thing that alarms me is the box. The box is quite different from the one I owned previously. The bottle and juice seem to be fine, but I haven't smelled it in about a year, so I don't trust my senses.

    The bottle/box I received:




    The bottle/box I owned previously that I know to be genuine.




    After some research, I see this example listed for sale in international "duty free" stores. I'm not sure what to make of it. Just tired of worrying of being ripped off. Ebay - never again.

    It's quite possible that they've changed the design of the box. As long as it smells ok I'm sure you're fine. eBay is actually a great place to buy fragrances. I've gotten some of my best deals on there, never had a bad experience.

    I have. I try to avoid it at all costs and do my research. But yes, the lower prices are tempting. I landed a fake Allure Homme Sport, and one previous fake CH Men. Really makes me weary of using the 'Bay.

    Get yourself over to a store in Tijuana called "LIVERPOOL". Tax free fragrances directly from France. If you live in San Diego you don't need to risk buying junk on EBAY.

    Believe it or not SEARS in Zona Rio (Tijuana) also has a great selection

    Don't forget your passport.

    A great, underrated fragrance.

    Wish I could help you but I have the same box as your previous one.

    How's the cap? The real one has a nice solid cap with a tight fit.

    I wouldn't worry about the packaging. If you like it and it smells right to you, that's all that matters.
