>I believe these bottles are known as Pernod ReFils.

this sentence is very funny...

...if you pronouce 'fils' incorrectly (i.e. as an english word)...your (and gb's attempt)to literally pronounce 'fils' in french summarily killed the light-heartedness of the pun...

My Dad was born in 1918 - Who knows, it could have been something from the days of old.

Pernod or Night Train...I only cared if it got me loaded as a teen.

"What a waste, it could have been used for drinking..."

Not worth worrying about -- unless you were born before 1900!

In my early youth, I remember mom telling dad to grab the "Pair-No" out of the liquor cabinet. She would use it for cooking.

What a waste, it could have been used for drinking...but, I didn't know that then.

One of the guys I use to work with, had lived in France for almost 20 years, he pronounced it "pair-know" with the accent on the "no".

I'm totally out of touch with french pronunciations.
Pernod ReFils would work,
but I have heard a large bunch pronounce
Pernod Fils "Perno Fee", and thus I have
begun to do so myself. I don't know if this is really
correct or not.

There are buyers out there...They don't necessarily know what they are buying. So, the sellers will keep on selling. Like Spam - One in a hundred will take the bait and that's what keeps it going.

I see eBay listings state: One time only...this is your only chance. It sells and 2 days later another will pop. I love sales...I did it for years.

Well, I guess this is a kind of eBay phenomena. People are "smelling" the big money they can make and try silly things. You can be sure, that one is going for that product. Maybe better not to buy expencive things on eBay.

It's such a shame that these incidents are becoming more frequent. I guess it will teach people to look more carefully at what they buy. But without first hand experience of the genuine article it can be difficult to tell sometimes i guess......

If I recall correctly, the buyer of said bottle realized the scam after receiving the bottle, and was pursuing a refund. Again, if I recall correctly, the buyer reported that the contents were not anything one would mistake as absinthe.

Be advised that the incidence of fakes of this sort has increased dramatically in recent times.

I can't remember who owned them and who bought the fake. But i do remember seeing quite a few takers and the amount was escalating.

Excellent eye Simon. Crosby pointed out the fakery on Louchelounge, but now this pic proves it. Did you report the seller as a fake and send the pictorial evidence? Do you know if anyone won the fake bottle?

Just found the other angle shoots of the 1/2 L bottle. That green colour is tragic!

A while back there where 3 empty Victorian 1/5l Pernod Fils bottles going on ebay. Then suddenly a month later one of them appeared back on ebay with contents. Claiming to be unopened with scary looking green contents. I feel for the poor being who thought this would work!
