    Default Legit?

    I looked at this seller with a 100% positive feedback on eBay who is from the Ukraine and has Frapin The Orchid Man. Please check out the pics including one with the wrapper. Not sure if it's legit. I don't see a batch number on the wrapper. Maybe it's not how Frapin does it? Any help would be much appreciated. Please let me know.

    Instead of taking a chance with this seller, why not just get it from an authorized dealer - Fragrance & Art: https://fragrancesandart.com/en/bran...-riot/cocaine/

    After you register, it's only $161.10, it's a trustworthy retailer in Sweden. I have ordered many times from them in the past. After you register on their site, they will deduct VAT from the purchase. A safer way to go IMO.

    Hard to know for sure, but the photos of the fragrance seem fine to me.

    I’d say take this advice, just me, but I’d be sceptical on the other one.

    Funny, cuz I already had that website on my bookmark. I'd feel safer with that website than that eBay seller. Thank you sir!

    Yeah, I agree. I'm going to avoid this eBayer.

    Everyone starts at the beginning. This seller has very little feedback, but that does not mean he is untrustworthy. Even if you purchase from a seller with a lot of good feedback and you have successfully purchased from them before, you can never be sure that the next purchase will not prove a problem. I had that happen with a Dior a couple of years ago. It is a gamble. Go with your gut as they say. I agree with hednic, though, that your risk is substantially less if you purchase from a reputable retailer.

    Of course, your credit card company will protect you against any sort of fraud, but it is a hassle to pack up anything and send it back, and in the end, in costs you money even if the seller supplies the return label. It costs you packing supplies (tape at the very least and sometimes a box if seller shipped in an envelop which too many of them do), time, aggravation, wear and tear on your motor plus petrol to bring the package to the post office, etc. In case that may sound negligible, remember the old saying to "look after the pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves." Many of the largest fortunes in America were established using this mindset.

    Either way, I hope you are able to secure a good bottle of the fragrance. Wear it in good health!

    Funny thing...I had noticed this seller also had Franck Boclet Tobacco, and I decided to get that instead. The description of the FB Tobacco made my mouth watery, lol.
    I had tried a sample earlier and was blown away. I also like Aramis Tobacco Reserve, fyi.

    I don't think you'll be disappointed with the Franck Boclet at all. It's a keeper IMO.

    I never buy from anyone on ebay with less than 100 positive feedback, you will get your money back if there's an issue, but it's just a waste of time.

    Yes. The seller's feedback is 100% positive. I believe it's worth a shot.
