Hello Sting1,

These are the pics of my 120ml Royal Oud. FYI.

That's great for the people who hate these posts and for the people afraid to post because they generate a lot of hate. Win, win. [emoji1]

Does this Gucci Pour Homme II look fake ...I just got it shipped from one of the discounter stores ..its a blind buy without testing ...so cant comment on the scent ...but it does seem weak ..and after the initial whiff of bergamot & Violet ..its becoming more and more like a skin scent ..so I am wondering whats the take on this ...
also the sprayer doesn't have a smooth finish with some ribbed aluminium / metal --is it normal ?

I once had a 100ml GPH1 (100% real) but the ''ribbed aluminium metal'' finish around the sprayer got stuck in the cap and was hardly to be removed anymore and my sprayer looked like this as well.

This is the worst box I've ever seen. I can't say whether the juice smells legit or not as this is the first bottle I've ever purchased, but it does smell similar to my Dior Homme with extra cocoa added. I only sprayed it on about an hour ago so I can't comment on longevity either. But, take a look at this glued together box and give me your thoughts. I think the bottle looks legit & the code on the bottle & box match. Have you ever seen a box this bad with a legit bottle of DHI? Thanks.

I was going to say it doesn't look bad at all until I got to the fourth photo - Yikes!

Yep. Could this just be a gray market bottle packaged in a crappy, cheap box? Seems to smell how i would imagine DHI smelling. I just got back from returning it, but really wanted it to be legit.

My dhi box is all black inside. I think you made the right call. :thumbsup:

Thanks for the info. It seemed to smell right, but not really wanting to chance it. Plus, if I kept it & ever wanted to trade or sell it later, I'd prefer a box that doesn't look like a 6 year old pasted it together.

Pure malt batch code: 0503516
Ultra zest batch code: 0513681

Are they look authentic?
They smell great though.

Hey everyone, I just bought this bottle off a local store for a great price. I never had a Creed with the batch code on the back of the bottle, is this bottle legit? From the smell, it seems legit to me as I have sampled SMW before. Please let me know your thoughts.

Batch is A3515Z01.

Thanks in advance! :)

OK now I have a dior homme parfum with similar issue.... and this is from fragrancenet... And I see how many people say this website is legit... Now tell me why is there white rips on the inside? And look at the box flaps.... Not to mention the bottom of the cellophane was taped over on the bottom as if it was tampered .... the upc code looks like it's stamped over..... Is this a real??? I can't test the smell because there is no dior homme parfum tester anywhere in the US.....
