i saw this , and im quite new to swapping internationally, otherwise i trade with people i know and dealt with more than twice nationally.
On fragrantica though i tend to get really um....'stingy offers' ?
I get offers like a perfume i can buy of fragrancex for 25USD wanting to swap for an exclusif line theirry mugler, oh an this takes d cake : a few 'body mist' from VS is okay for a swap of alien taste of frags
at the risk of sounding whiney im going to ask "i was just wondering if this was normal and has other members has similar experiences,"
You will also find that many swappers have drugstore items galore for swap that would be nice to have for equal trade...but, only have niche and ultra luxury on their want lists. It's a waste of your time. I wonder how they manage a swap.
And, when I say swapping cheap for ultra luxury, I mean that these folks are wanting bottles, not decants...and some luxury fragrances are so expensive that they have listed...one spritz would cost more that 30 ml of what they are offering.
It makes me mad. Especially, since I cannot afford ultra luxury, yet have offers worth equal value of what they are swapping!!
I can understand if an underrated offer is made by mabye $20-$40..you can counteroffer or say they have to come down to reality a bit. But, when the differance is $200+...that's insane.
But, it happens.
