  3. Re: How do you identity if a Creed fragrance is authentic?

    Thank you for the info.

    I'm looking at Spring Flower. It is an Ebay seller (100% positive rating), says it is an unwanted gift and the starting price is quite low, £40.

    Am I completely naive...
  4. How do you identity if a Creed fragrance is authentic?

    I was wondering if anyone can help me with this. I'd like to get a Creed perfume from an online seller but need to check if it's a real deal first. What do I ask for as a sign of authenticity?

    TIA!
