I just Bought a 1.6 fl. Oz. bottle of M7 from a kiosk at the mall for $60. This box too has a black strip over what used to be the serial number I suppose. I peeled it off and the code has been completely cut from the box. Although the box was sealed when I bought it, the code was completely cut off the sticker at the bottom of the bottle as well. I did not have a sample to compare the fragrance itself to, but I like it. Seems like what it would smell like based on notes and reviews and itlasted all day as well. These cut codes worry me though. The other thing I noticed was that the ribbing in the cardboard was somewhat ebbed in the cap, not etched, just mirrored. I'm really not interested in returning it especially since I read the grey market article, guess I'm just looking for a little reassurance that I got an authentic product. Doesn't seem stale at all to my inexperienced nose. I looked it up on one of those batch code calculators and it says it was manufactured in 2003. I suppose that makes it authentic but I don't know. Any comments, recommendations are welcome. I have 7 days to return it for an exchange. Your thoughts?
