  1. Re: Fake or Tester? Creed Baie de Genievre

    I wouldn't worry too much about the lack of text on the bottom of the box. Baie de Genievre has been around for a while, since the 1980s, so there are bound to be some differences depending on how...
  2. Re: Fake or Tester? Creed Baie de Genievre

    Not really, as even if there was a sticker originally, it could have fallen off. There may be a batch code etched into the edge of the ridge at the base of the bottle.

  7. Re: Aramis Tuscany Per Uomo - light green-ish colored juice?

    No obvious differences, but my father's bottle can't be more than about ten years old, so might of itself differ from the original 1980s release.
  8. Re: Fake or Tester? Creed Baie de Genievre

    Genuine, and well worth buying if the price is fair. Baie de Genievre is an excellent fragrance.
