I have what I think is a vintage tester bottle of Chanel Les Exclusifs Cuir de Russie Eau De Toilette. The batch code etched on the bottle is 4301. Does that mean it was manufactured April 2001? I originally purchased in 2016. As I understand, these vintage Cuir De Russie are highly sought after and very hard to find. Do I have the Holy Grail? The batch # reflects manufactured Aug 2019 on Checkfresh which would be impossible since I purchased in 2016. It did say Chanel reuse their numbers every 8 years. Smells great. Only sprayed a couple of times. I remember when I first purchased, I did not like. It sat in my closet and forgot about it.


What do you think?

Actually your bottle should be July 2011. Les Exclusive EDT bottles are great overall.

You can take a look at the Raiders of the Lost Scent blog for identifying Chanel batch codes

Thanks N.CAL - Do you have any idea when they stopped manufacturing the Les Exclusive EDT and started selling the EDP version? Since it does not say EDT on the bottle, I want to make sure it actually is EDT. I did purchase in 2016 and as you said, the manufacture date is 2011.

I believe the EDT was launched in 2007 and the EDP in 2016.

If you look through the perfume at the back of the label it should say edt or edp.
