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?
