mustafa really cheap..

I bought 2 x John V's Oud for only 105 bucks a few days back.

Should be authentic right? Packaging all these looks ok. Somemore from a major shopping center.

Authentic yes, but i still feel the quality is a bit off...

Maybe got to do with how they store or transport the materials.

Or maybe they mass purchase the older / unsold units that makes the price super cheap?

Hi Bros and Sis,

Anyone knows where I can safely buy genuine samples (eg. 1-5ml) of perfumes such as Oud for Greatness and Tom Ford Oud Wood?

Much appreciated!

This has been discussed till death. Most of the items there are clearly not old stocks, if you are a regular there, you will just be amazed how good the sales are and how fast the stocks move. And quite a good number of the products have expiry dates, or if not, you can check them on sites like checkfresh to get a sense. I do not know what it is meant by not transporting or storing them properly. If it's just gut feel and not based on evidence, then it's better to stay silent than to speculate.

Carousell has some reputable decanters. Look for Tanqueray10 or passionforfragrances

Visited Mustafa for the first time in a long while. Decent prices but the range has become patchy and is a mere shadow of last time.
Previously, could find some hidden gem from old stock. Now the focus is on safe, mass market fragrances that can command volume.
Oh well.
