The difference is that ebay product is being advertised as a 'tester bottle' and thus doesnt come with the packing.

Why is there such a big difference in pricing? Could the ebay ones be fake? What would be a fair price for davidoff coolwater 125ml EDT?
I would say but it from perfume2order.I bought davidoff cool water from perfume2order and it think it is reasonablly priced.From ebay chance of getting fake products is more

Recently added Calvin Klein Obsession bottle to my collection.

Review:
This fragrance is regarded as one of the classics. I don't know if the original juice has ever been reformulated or not but this scent doesn't seem to last long. I expected a lot better from this scent especially because it belongs to the era of the powerhouse fragrances. The projection and silage is almost non existent after 2 hrs of application. It stays really close to the skin after few hours and you need to really sniff your skin to find its traces. Also i found the dry down of the scent to be nothing special. Just a blend of sandalwood and cloves. Get a thumbs down from my side.

I have heard that CK has discontinued this scent and is not available in any of the stores now. I bought my bottle from perfume2order.

Next Purchase: Polo Classic Green

Ah! the Acqua Di Gio, one of the popular scents from Armani. Have never tried it though.

Interesting that you say that because i've found the armani fragrances to have average longevity. I have the attitude from their house and its a disaster in terms of the longevity. The smell is absolutely delicious but lasts only for 2-3 hrs max. Its even worse then the CK.

Could you elaborate the Acqua Di Gio scent?

Recently purchased 'Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme' by Chanel. Loving the smell! Subtle and smooth, not overpowering but lingers on long after it's been applied.

I currently use the following:-
Acqua di gio homme (Deo)
Hugo by Hugo Boss
Tommy Cologne by Tommy Hilfiger
Police Dark
Diesel Plus Plus
Brut Aftershave and Deodrant

I heard somewhere long time ago - "A man should always smell the same". In other words, the speaker professing that men should stick to just one smell and use it. I personally dont endorse the view. Just wanted to know what are your views.

One of my favorites is the CK Eternity. It was my very own first bottle of perfume (imported) which was gifted to me more than a decade back.

I love the Polo range of perfumes.

Some of my favorites in no particular order:

1. CK Eternity
2. Polo Sport
3. Polo Classic Green
4. Aramis
5. Azzaro Silver Black
6. Davidoff - Silver Shadow
7. Polo Blue
8. Issey Miake
9. Givenchy - Pi
10. Givenchy - Very Irresistible
11. Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) - Opium

I love woody and musky perfumes more than the fresh/sporty ones.

Those who have similar tastes should give the ones above a sniff.

Smile re: Which Perfume/Cologne/Deodorant do you use?

Wanted to buy Acqua Di Gio by Giorgio Armani.

Checked out a couple of places online for the prices. I don't trust ebay for perfumes.

Flipkart has it for 3400.

Flipkart.com | Buy Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio EDT - 50 ml Online - Perfume - Price in India, Reviews & Ratings

And perfume2order has it for 4226.

Buy original ACQUA DI GIO perfumes in India

Is it worth taking a chance with flipkart ? I have heard wonderful reviews about them

Edit : Sorry. The volumes of both of them are different. Failed to notice it. Can't delete the post. So, thought ill add a video which would be useful for someone buying the same perfume online.



PS : The flipkart version of the image looks like the fake one described in the video :P Notice the dark grey lettering.

My Bottle of Jovian Sex appeal has finished. I got it last from Dubai Airport. Whats a reasonable India price for it in Bengaluru?
I find these things are overpriced in india.

Thanks
