Oh my! I just had a thought.
Since we know that the perfume is scraped out of the compacts before they are sold empty at the Estee Lauder warehouse sales, perhaps someone knows an Estee Lauder
employee at the warehouse and is able to purchase the solids that were taken out in vat containers and then is reselling them as refills in smaller containers. Wow all they would need to do is put the emptied real EL solid perfumes into little containers and then sell them. Now wouldnt that be something and Estee Lauder would know about it since they are the ones ordering the perfume to be scraped out. What a thought .... these refills just could be the original Estee solid perfumes. Maybe the seller doesnt want to jepordize their contact at the warehouse and just says they are homemade. Hummm...
Lets hope no one can find the boxes and labels they throw away at the warehouse or we will never know if the mint in box ones are legit either.
But as we know from waiting for EL to do something about the warehouse sales, they really dont care. It is actually EL that is sabotaging the collectors isnt it?

QUOTE: "Maybe the seller doesn't want to jeopardize their contact at the warehouse and just says they are homemade" As you seem to know so much about what goes on at the Estee Lauder warehouse perhaps you could enlighten us as to whether you think the refills being sold on ebay are homemade or 'original'? If all this wheeling and dealing was above board why would the person have to worry about 'jeopardizing their warehouse contact'?
QUOTE: "these refills just could be the original Estee Lauder perfumes" Why would anyone be stupid enough to risk being thrown off ebay and a law suit from Estee Lauder by calling them homemade if they were in fact original? Only rogue traders selling fake goods take that risk. Either way the solids have been tampered with so are not the real deal!
Actually it is not Estee Lauder that is sabotaging things for the collectors but unscrupulous sellers and their contacts...........
