    Default Need advice on eBay seller (perfumeandbeauty)

    Hello everyone, new to this site (great site BTW)

    I recently discovered Terre DíHermes and absolutely love it. I found a seller on eBay- perfumeandbeauty that has a 16.9 oz bottle for sale at a good price. They have 99+ % positive feedback but I still have had some bad experiences on eBay even with sellers with great feedback. I was thinking of buying my next bottle directly from Hermes, but the eBay deal is very tempting. My current bottle was bought from Costco and everything on that bottle seems legit. So my question to all of you much more experienced eBay frag buyers...have any of you bought from this eBay seller? If so, are they legit? Too good to be true? Or should I not risk it and buy from Hermes?

    Welcome to Basenotes Maistroyoda, I hope you enjoy your fragrance journey. There's some great deals on eBay, but sometimes buying directly from the manufacturer is the best peace of mind there is. Best of luck.

    I regularly buy fragrances on Ebay, and after investigating the seller everything looks legit; however, I would not recommend paying so much.
    6.7 ounce bottles from other sellers appear to be a much cheaper per ML.


    I recommend buying a 6.7 from this seller; I can personally vouch for this seller.

    I can echo PartySnake - I have 2 positive transactions with this vendor.

    Also, if you’re more interested in the scent than presentation, Dealperfumes has good prices on TdH in both damaged boxes and testers, too. Always good to have choices, right?

    This is the route I'd take if I were you.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I did notice the good prices on the damaged boxes. Have you bought from Dealperfumes?

    I personally bought a 1.6oz damaged box of Terre D’Hermes from deal perfumes for 31.99, It was good, the box had a slight razor blade slit down it.



    Honestly, how much experience do you have with Terre D’Hermes?
    I couldn’t imagine going through a 6.7oz bottle, none the less a 16.9 oz personally.

    Perhaps it’s just better to buy the $30 bottle like. Preferences change, it’s possible you could get sick/bored of the fragrance, or simply want to try something new.

    I liked it enough to consider the huge bottle. I tried the other Terres’ (Parfum, intense Vetiver, and eau Tres fraiche) but really only like the EdT. The tres fraiche smells like armpit to me.
