    Don't buy from China - get the fake from reputable fake dealers from Bulgaria or Emirates - they would at least care to create something that may smell similar, and put a little effort to that.

    Re: M7 (reformulation). Is this authentic?

    On the other hand, a lot of genuine stuff sells in slip covers at the duty-free shops.
