Bought a perfume from eBay but it doesn't smell right, what shall I do?

Found 1st Feb 2010
Hi all.

I bought a 100ml bottle of DKNY perfume from eBay which was being sold as a tester. I still have my old bottle as well and they just don't smell the same.

It smells similar and the bottle looks okay authenticity-wise - I am wondering if the perfume has 'gone-off'?

Has anyone had this happen to them before? Should I report it to Pay as 'not as described' or what?

Thanks loads x

That happened to my sister, bought a perfume she always used off ebay and it was totaly the wrong smell, think it had gone off, she emailed seller who said was selling for a friend and didnt know what it should have smelt like, she gave her a refund. So drop them an email i would.

How have you got on with the seller?

The seller hadn't replied as of Tuesday night so I went through the eBay resolution centre and explained the problem. This morning I got a message back saying that the seller has aggreed to refund me upon receipt of the perfume back to them, so I sent it back today via recorded delivery :thumbsup:

Seller hasn't sent me any message but at least I will be getting a refund
