Because I love scouring eBay looking for perfume that I probably should not buy, I present some current “Tempting eBay finds”, in no particular order, for those ‘fumies with cash burning a hole in their pocket:
The eBayer I bought my Alahine from is back with an 100mL bottle for $75, still a steal! (she’s also got the rest of the Teo Cabanel line, all at a great price)
Amouage Lyric, 100mL for $219.99 While I have not made a purchase from this seller, my mom bought her bottle of Montale Aoud Red Flowers from him, and had a positive experience.
Caron Yatagan, that heavenly lavender, (4.2oz) for only $30.95 (I have NOT bought from this seller)
Jacomo Silences EDP, 100mL (tester) for $16.75, shipped!
(I haven’t bought from this seller, but plan to…)
I have bought many fragrances on eBay, and have had a positive experience each time. I’m lucky, since I know that there are people out there selling knock-offs, diluted fragrances, or other nasty surprises for the unsuspecting perfumista.
Some of my eBay scores:

Aveda Chakra #7
Chanel Eau Premiere
Chanel no 19 EDP
Chanel no 5 EDT (vintage)

Have you bought fragrances on eBay? Have your experiences been positive, or negative?
