Topic: How to know the perfume is "Fresh" & not expired- If you buy on Ebay?
Hello everyone! I have a question.
I have been wanting to purchase fragrance on Ebay. But I have known people in my life who don't store their own perfumes right, and have gone bad. A best friend of mine thinks her perfumes are fine. But they are rancid from sitting in her hot very humid bathroom. How do you know who to buy from there and which ones sell them new &/ or fresh?
Also have purchased stale/ or fragrance gone bad at discount stores. I now know they go there, after they have sit on a shelf and past expiration dates in other stores. Also suspect they were perhaps sitting in a hot warehouse. TJmaxx isn't really focusing on storing them right like Perfumania, etc. They are discount store.
How do you protect yourself from this when you purchase from Ebay? I have never bought anything from there and don't know what to look for. How do I know they haven't been sitting in someone's hot attic? Or Bathroom, or that they aren't selling something that is expired?
Do you just take a chance?
What are your experiences, and how do you know you are buying from someone who knows about fragrances and will sell you something fresh, and not gone bad or old?
Most people don't know about that. So how do you know who to buy from there?
What has been your experiences shopping for fragrance there? Suggestions? Should I worry? I just didn't want to pay money and get something old. It's already happened to me in some stores. And I didn't want it to happen again, if I shop online. :( I would be so disappointed.
Thank you! I am afraid to shop there, and don't know what to look for.
