Why isn't the Lucky Rabbit on the same background?
There seems to be a new bidder (less than 30 days with ebay) increasing the auction right away.
Both descriptions are almost the same- liked perfume and used it and from my personal collection.
At the bottom of the auction seller claim to have another user ID, this ID has 125 + feedbacks 0 neutral and 0 negative, then why change the account?
Also under this different account all of what this seller sold is invalid.
Things with these two auction just come across a little strange.

Not saying this auction isn't legit, I would just hate to see anyone taken advantage of. I do think there is shilling going on with this auction.
I did get my princess from a seller with 0 feedbacks (she was brand new to ebay), I did verify her and her address as well as phone #. I spoke with her several times on the phone also.
Mediation would be the best possible thing, if the seller agrees than all should go smooth.

You are passing on valuable information, I truly appreciated. The escrow info is great. I'm keeping my eye on the ones. You(and Jack)are doing an outstanding job!

I am not saying this is what is going on for sure but it sure does look that way.

Not actually sure how you could confirm that the two user ids are in fact the same seller to make the previous feedback relevant.
As you can no longer see the email address of a user id the only other way would be to do a 'request for contact details' for each user and compare. As far as I am aware this is only possible if you are actively involved in a transaction with the other user id so you would have to be currently bidding. By requesting details you are also providing your details to the seller which may not be a desirable event. Also as the 'old' user id is not currently active a 'request for contact details'would not be possible for this one so you would have nothing to compare it with! hmmm So unless there is another simple way of confirming it I would imagine you would have to contact eBay for some verification - if they are able to. Very strange..I can only echo the sentiments of previous messages "buyer beware!"
...of course there could be a simple explanation for all of this! seems a bit long-winded but hopefully you get the gist

Sometimes you can get an idea of what is going on if you look at the feedbacks and then check out the other auctions they have won. Are the same names bidding on each other's auctions? Is the person buying very inexpensive items just to get some good feedbacks and then trying to sell an expensive item?
When you decide to use an escrow service, I'd recommend using only eBay's escrow service. There have been a lot of reports of fake escrow services being set up by the scammers as part of the scam! Granted, this has been mostly for items worth thousands of dollars, but still...BE CAREFUL!
