I am assuming they are high end brands?

If so then no they are not going to be low risk.

I don't know about that specific brand, but there are definitely phony perfume out there, and so I would say perfume in general is not low risk (maybe "medium" risk). Name brands are always high risk, though.

If you're trying to find low risk items to sell while the account is new, then random used things around your house works well, as does just about anything you can find at a dollar store.

anything 100usd price range is risky and brand name perfumes is risky. risky + risky = #REKT.

I'd say cologne is only really high risk if you say have 1 brand and want to sell like 10 of them in a short time frame on a new account.

There are ALOT of phake colognes on eBay.

You also can run the risk of a buyer claiming its phake and there goes your account...

Of course if it was a strong aged account, that 1 buyer wouldn't matter.
