Yeah, I've heard worse things about BeautyEncounter. They're notorious for grinding off the batch #'s. I remember someone posting about how they got A*Men Taste of Fragrance and the product code was cut out. Because of that the person wasn't able to register their fragrance online.
I've gotten all my Creed bottles from Fragrancenet and I'm happy with all of my purchases. I can see the batch #'s and they weren't grounded out or hidden. All of them have either been of the current year or previous year's batches, except one case (Himalaya) where I got a 6 year old batch. The Himalaya smells fine though, and I get great longevity on it (around 10 hours).
