  1. Re: Jomashop: Anyone Purchase Any Fragrances From Them Before And How Were They?

    They're fine. So help me, I think half these US retail sites just drop ship straight out of one warehouse in NJ, and the other half from some big house in Houston. So your "packing" has to do with...
  2. Re: Any experience with online discounter Azonlon?

    You know it might be fine. I think pretty much anyone--you, me, whoever---can tap into a wholesale inventory in New Jersey or somewhere and put their inventory on a website we make up, and...
  3. Re: Any experience with online discounter Azonlon?

    On a incorrectly-pictured Bottega Veneta, they have the same photo/description/SKU combo/method as fragrance11.com so I suppose they're using the same supplier and website source.

    But man, the...

    And this is the issue. I'd almost prefer they keep the Russian sellers because then I can see it's from Russia. And then for me it comes down to anything sold by a lot of Russians cannot be...

    Re: Russian fakes removed from E-bay ?

    Looks like a lot fewer. I input the Tried & True Bleu de Chanel (probably the most faked frag in the world) and found one, but not nearly as many.

  6. Re: Need Help Verifying Creed Silver Mountain Watee

    Oh dear. There's a lot of things wrong with the bottle, but just to start, I think they always say 3.33oz or 3.3, not 3.4. As far as the smell, the truth is some fakes are so good that they're...

    I do have a theory about some of these. I think if you're selling something fairly rare, they could buy it just because they want to try it, especially during the pandemic and/or it's not available...

    Re: Selling on eBay: The Wild West

    I think the inflaming statement was "I recommend in the future to buy your [BRAND] products from major retailers so you have more peace of mind. "

    Oh, well. It's Ebay.

    Absolutely agree the manufacturer is at fault. I truly don't understand some of these companies that make perfumes with MSRP of several hundred or even a thousand $ or Euros and won't take the...
  10. Re: Received leaking creed flacon from authorised Creed seller

    Yeah the stopper is hard to get off but still leaks. Take a perfect flacon in the box. Put the box on your clothes drier upside down and run the drier 8 hours, or throw it upside down in the trunk...
  11. Re: Received leaking creed flacon from authorised Creed seller

    I have never received nor heard of anyone receiving a Creed flacon that did NOT have leakage. Typical is 5-10ml. It would not surprise me at all to have 10ml leakage in a 500ml Creed flacon. More...

  18. Re: (UK) The Fragrance Shop.....'members club'....what a crock....

    I just do the math and see if it's worth it. At the lowest membership pricing you are paying 5 to upgrade your discount from 15% to 20%. So I'd look at it as 15% off on the first 100 only...

    Re: Less Than Honest eBay Marketing Ploys

    There is a hyperlink next to "quantity available" where it says something like

    2 available / 7 sold

    If you click on "7 sold" it will take you to a page showing when people purchased the items.
