Although I don't ever wear any perfume (gives me quite the pounding headache) I do adore selling perfume, especially vintage bottles. I was so surprised to learn that there is such a following for perfume. Many people don't even buy them at the estate sales that I attend. Not all of them are valuable so it's worth doing a quick research either at home and making note of brands that sell or researching while at the sale.
It was purchased two weekends ago. Funny enough I had just about run out of my supplies of vintage perfume and told myself that I needed to stock up. Perfume has become my bread and butter item to sell on eBay. Low and behold the very next day I found 12 bottles of vintage perfume including Hermes, Gucci and other rare French perfume.
The best thing for me about selling perfume is that I never even hesitate to consider keeping it. The only little challenging thing about selling perfume is that it is illegal to send it on an airplane because it's considered flammable. Now I do know lots of sellers that will ship it airmail. This is a even a hot topic on forums with some being okay to take the chance while others follow the law. For now, my listings state that I am shipping Parcel Post and that it is illegal to ship priority. Here is a bit more information on how to ship perfume.
Do you have a favorite brand of perfume (new or vintage) that you have had success with?
