    Lightbulb Cologne, EO, and Pheromone exchange thread

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    Okay! I thought I'd give this idea for a thread a shot!

    If any of you are like me, you probably have a

    shelf-full of colognes, essential oils, pheromone products, etc. that have accumulated over time that just didn't

    work out, or you're no longer interested in. Or perhaps they were a gift that just wasn't right.

    So, what to

    do with them? They may be too good to toss, or were just too expensive to see them go wasted. The resale shops

    don't want used "personal" products, nor generally do the church rummage sales. Not even eBayable! And you don't

    have someone else to give it to (especially if it was a gift from someone who might find out...).

    So here's an

    idea. Use this thread to "Offer" these unwanted products to other forum members. Or post a "Wanted" if

    you are looking for a product you might want to try, but not spend big bucks on. Deals could be worked out privately

    using the PM feature (rather than load the thread with negotiation messages). As items are disposed of, "Offerers"

    could edit their original posts to remove the disposed of items (or add new ones), or of course just add a new post

    (but that may get confusing).

    Yes LS has a "return" policy for their products, but this would cover those items

    that don't qualify.

    Of course, whatever deals made would be between users, and not involve LS. You'd have to

    depend on each other to be upfront and complete the transactions. You could ask for payment (eg via Paypal), or just

    offer stuff free. Whatever.

    Just make it clear if you are "Offering" or if it's a "Wanted." Be specific,

    upfront, and detailed in your descriptions. Make people know if an item is no longer available.

    I'm going to

    leave it up to Bruce and the Powers-That-Be to decide if there should be any restrictions here. A competing seller

    to LS would probably be a no-no. Mainly for us common end-users only.

    Be nice, use common sense, and we can all

    win and be the better for it.

    Have at!

    Doesn't quite feel right to

    me.

    We might like it, but it seems to me that Bruce should not have to compete with forum members for scent

    dollars.

    I'm leaving any final desicions up to the Powers-That-Be.

    What the idea here is is NOT to

    compete with LS but:

    A) give people a chance to get rid of unwanted or underused items they don't want

    anymore.

    B) give people a chance to try out products that aren't readily avialable as samples and/or are too

    costly to purchase in a large quantity.


    It's not competeing with LS, because we're not talking about

    selling "new" products in a "retail" sense, and it includes products that LS *DOESN'T* sell, like straight

    colognes.

    For LS products, yes you could buy and try, then use the return option if you don't like it. But that

    just loads up LS with "used" products that can't be sold as new. This could actually be to LS's advantage, in that

    it would give people an opportunity to try or experiment with a product they wouldn't have tried before, and could

    result in them placing an order to LS. Or suggesting a product LS could carry.

    This does depend on everyone

    being honest about their dealings. But I have faith that a vast majority of people on these forums will honor their

    transactions. People had doubts about eBay. Now look.

    ALSO! LS itself would be free to use this thread to offer

    *their* overstock or specials like they used to do with the auctions.

    Don't know until you try.

    Ill

    post this as an example of what I have in mind. And YES! This IS a valid "Wanted" ad from me.

    cost of shipping, and reasonable amount for compensation for cost of product.

    Please contact me via the PM

    option on this Forum. Located in USA. Thanks.

    Well Rbt, I guess if the

    moderators leave your message up then it's okay with LS;though it feels like your taking advantage of the LS web

    site by seeking a supplier for a product LS carries.

    It seems to me that if you have a desire for a product,

    such as A-1, that LS carries, you should make your purchase from LS rather than going through their web site to find

    a cheaper supplier from their forum membership.

    Using the LS forum as a clearing house for used and unwanted

    products doesn't seem to be fair and proper, in the business sense, to Love-Scent.

    trade for something. i haven't used it much (sticking to NPA), maybe 2-3 applications, so let's say 3/4ths of a
