    thats not too bad if in box from UK
    If you wanna really save some money get petals from bottom garden and mix in a jar with water.

    I used to do it all time when i was little and my mum said it was her favourite perfume ever!!!!:rofl:

    Personally I wouldnt risk it either, but in saying that, Im probably only saying this because I have just been wripped off out of well over £100 from skanks claiming they have baby things for sale on there.

    Beside's, Yvanne, you really dont know what you're getting if you buy perfume from ebay. Could be scented gnats piss for all we know lol.

    Yup, I did indeed, but all they keep telling me to do is contact seller by telephone first which I have done 3 times, but guess what, its a false number, yet they STILL keep sending me an email telling me to call her. Paypal are useless too, cant do anything as of yet as the seller has failed to respond to complaint. Lovely.

    I bought my Mum some Chanel No 5 a couplle of years ago, I was a littl dubious TBH. Somehting just didnt seem right. It smelt ok, and the bottle and packaging was fine, but the scent didnt last very long. It may have been a fake, but it was a very good one (and waaaaaaaaay too expensive!!)
    Id be very careful!
    I know there are a few selling testers I think, with a few squirts gone. Id personally rather buy them.

    TBH I can't wear most perfumes, they burn my skin. My Mum wears perfumes alot though so I get her perfume for birthdays and Christmases, - she had quite a few added to her collection when I was trying to find a perfume that wouldn't burn my skin too, lol
