    Hey all,

    I am perfume/oud junky new to this forum.

    I recently came across Ottoman Empire II for sale on eBay and other forums. I've seen that on Areej's website, the pre-sale is closed and sold out and I haven't even seen it for sale anywhere else. Can anyone comment if these could be legit? Has anyone actually purchased a bottle of Ottoman Empire II or Siberian Musk II?

    Many thanks!

    Marwan

    Yes, prices are very high. They could be legit. I know at least in one case where someone bought at a very high mark-up and then sold them. Best if you buy from someone with good reputation. So make sure it is from
    - a well known member of Ouddict/Gahrau/Basnenotes/Fragrantica member
    - an eBay seller with at least 99% reputation
    - a well known person on the Facebook group 'Fans of Areej Le Dore fragrances'.
    - You can post a request over there, or on Basenotes. But it is highly unlikely to get out of stock ALDs at retail prices.

    I purchased, it was legit, and I love it. I'm really glad I jumped on it because now I can't find bottles on the secondary market at any price.

    I really like Areej. My next purchase will probably be Koh-I-Noor for the wife (we share fragrances anyway).
