    I hope not. I just opened seven 5ml decants from Scentsei, with seven more on the way.

    I've bought perfume from sellers on Bonanza. All, were the real deal.

    I've had great experiences with Bonanza. Never a problem. Some of my most treasured decants were obtained there.

    I've only bought frags there twice, but both experiences were flawless.

    I told you about those severely watered down Roja decants that were coming from Azerbaijan. That's where that Nuwa sample you had, came from. Well, Myscentsei on Bonanza bought from this scam artist, and then sold the decants to me. When I told her it was diluted, she initially got defensive and denied it, then admitted she got it from an unofficial source. She took them back, but kept some of my money because they'd leaked, but I had showed her a photo of them having leaked (a lot) on the way to being delivered to me, as soon as I received them. She immediately put them back up for sale, and is still trying to sell that original formulation Nuwa, that is clearly watered down, smells awful and she knows full well, being familiar with at least every other Roja. She told me she had Nuwa for sale back when it was first released -- so was that diluted, too? The juice is supposed to brown, opaque, but you could see through this yellow juice. Needless to say, I haven't bought from her since, and won't. I was a steady customer for a year, until she pulled that shady business.

    That's awful, Hothamwater. Like eBay, Bonanza has sellers that are good, bad and indifferent. I usually stick with the sellers I know, but that's not always possible when you have a particular fragrance in mind. Always a gamble, online!

    That is sound advice.

    I had no issue with this seller until this transcation, aside from the occasional unwarranted curt, crabby reply from them. It would've been one thing if she owned up to the mistake of buying from an obviously shady seller on ebay, apologized for the partially full, spicy well-water I received, taken down the listing for the diluted juice, and given me a full refund, but she got upset with me, blamed me, and decided to keep some of my money on return. Myscentsei was also hesitant to send me a decant she owed me, as part of a bottle trade agreement we made in private messages, prior to the the debacle, once she had my bottle in her possession. I will say, that original formula Nuwa is the only scent I had even a suspicion of being inauthentic. The other decants were fine. I can't recommend Myscentsei, but, if you do order, maybe make a video of yourself opening the package, so you have proof, in case of a needed return.

    Good to know. I'll keep a wary eye on these samples I'm getting from her.
