I got mine for $35 free shipping too... I don't care for those Creed scents. In high school all the guys wore English Leather and it reeked. Creed A-Z is the same stuff and you have to mortgage your house to have the opportunity to get nauseous.

    Don't be. I made the mistake of ordering a bottle of OV on eBay once, thinking I scored a deal as the bidding stopped at about $95 at 2am and no one outbid me in the middle of the night. Well, it was too good to be true - the bottle that arrived reeked like some nasty chemical paint stripper, and was leaking all over the box. Extremely poorly made bottle, but that's beside the point - the fragrance, if you can even call it that, was not even remotely close to OV. I contacted the seller immediately, and he quickly backpedaled that it was from a "new distributor" in New York, he only got a few bottles to see how the sales go, that he doesn't know anything about Creed, it was just highly recommended by the distributor, etc. Sob story. Needless to say, I got my money back, including shipping, and he got banned by eBay for selling counterfeits. eBay really doesn't like to see those, especially since there are federal laws in place against shipping counterfeit items across state lines - so they don't want to be involved even by association with these types of sales.

    They smell really, REALLY bad. They dont even try to make them smell good. The OV that I bought smelled like dirty water with paint thinner and lemon pine-sol mixed.

    I worry about counterfeiters all the time when dealing with Ebay and only use top rated sellers and when dealing with Amazon always use their authorized vendors. Sometimes a $20.00 to $50.00 savings is not worth it if you love the fragrance. I do enjoy the usual familiar discounters and never worried about all the batch controversy's and conspiracy theories that run the gambit over the past couple of years. I am afraid with Fragrances becoming very popular some of these shams will starting showing up more and more in the future.
