Should I sell my bottle of Vintage Tabarome?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I've got a big bottle of Creed Vintage Tabarome. Bought it in Paris some years ago.

Apparently, the stuff is now valuable. A bottle the size of the one I have would probably get me several hundred dollars on ebay.

I've barely used it. (It's so strong that a really tiny bit goes a really long way.) It's not my favorite fragrance, but I do like it, and it's pretty unique, not like anything else I've got in my collection.

Should I just sell it and buy shoes, or will I regret it and be sad because I can never get it again?

You're 100% sure that it's Vintage Tabarome and not the current Tabarome Millesime? (Don't mean to doubt you, it's just that I've seen people selling what they were calling vintage when it was just the regular one.)

If it's the real thing, you've got something that's very valuable. One possibility that lets you have your cake and eat it too is to sell decants from your bottle.

I suggest you decant about 10 ml for yourself and then sell the rest. That much will last you a long time. It's a really interesting scent, and very unique, but if you don't wear it often you might as well sell it and get something you'd appreciate more.

It's the vintage Tab. (I'm kind of a scent-o-phile, and I know the difference.)

I'm thinking that maybe I will decant some for myself to keep and just sell the rest. I've probably got 240ml left of the original 250ml. At the rate I use it, 40ml is likely a lifetime supply.

Will need to hit Basenotes and figure out what 200ml of Vintage Tab is worth.


Edit: Here's a picture:



I poured some of it into a Creed atomizer, but I've only used it maybe four times, so I've got quite a bit left. Could pour most of it back in the bottle and would have an almost full bottle.


Edit: Just saw this ebay auction. $1,300????? I'm not really sure I know what to think. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Tabarome-Creed-Private-Collection-250-ml-bottle-Only-10-Used-/220994424108?pt=fragrance&hash=item33744b4d2c&afsrc=1

Do this. And then sell it. You don't want to be in the situation, ten years from now, when you regret not having any left. But then you don't want to have an asset you can't cash in. Also, if you're vacillating on it you have nothing to lose by, at your leisure, decanting some and selling them off with a relatively low starting bid. I think that people will be competitive with such an item on ebay. Shit, look at your example!!!!

If you DO end up decanting it and selling it off, let me know . . .

I agree with this. If you're not wearing it, might as well move it along.

What's the diff between the two (the vintage and the Millesime)? What year did the vintage formula stop being produced?

I agree with all the previous posters, if you're not crazy about it definitely decant some for yourself and sell the rest after all why leave it sitting there when you can buy a pair of shoes that you do love!
