    Default Le Male owners - have you got a min......

    Hi

    Ive just recieved a new bottle of le male and it might just be me losing my mind, but on the last bottle I had, im sure there was something etched onto the underneath of the bottle where as this one is blank?? Could someone flip theyre bottle over and have a wee look for me to confirm, cheers

    What is it about buying scent on the internet that makes me so paranoid lately!

    What is "etched" on the bottom of mine is:

    PARFUMS JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
    EAU DE TOILETTE
    75 ML. 2.5 FL. OZ.
    MADE IN FRANCE
    (some code numbers) PARIS

    On the bottom of my bottle I have a "sticker" that reads

    Parfums Jean Paul Gautier
    Eau de toilette 75ML-2.5 oz
    BPI 75116 Paris

    When I peeled the sticker off, it was a flat bottom with no etching.

    The bottle use to have a sticker and that was replaced with etching I guess to help reduce the counterfits.

    Did you buy your bottle at a discount perfume shop? Has stated in a prior tread they some times remove bar codes and sticker from their bottles.

    I actually bought the bottle off ebay. It came in its tin and was 'hard' cellphane wrapped. Thinking about it, there was also no documentation in the tin neither. I am pretty sure the scent is original but if it IS a counterfeit, theres no way im letting this guy mug me on ebay.

    What do you think....is Le Male a well known counterfeit problem?

    Buying in person at the store for me from now on >

    My bottle doesn't have a sticker or etching, but there is writing in a grey/silver color saying bottle size, made in france and frag name. I bought in person in a department store so it is legit. Also, there are not any pimples on the bottle of mine, but I have a smaller bottle (40ml), not sure if that matters...

    edit: I didn't realize how old this thread was until I posted .

    My bottles are etched same as the ones above.I can't confirm this, but it is said that JPG is the most copied/counterfit cologne on eBay. It is also said that many are pourly done and easy to spot. You know the juice, give it a test run. If the juice is fine and your still not happy there's only one thing to do, return it.

    Yes, the thread was started in 2005, but what the heck, I'll post anyways. Perhaps this will help put at least one person at ease in the future! This is a pic showing bottom of my bottle (40ml, '1.3' oz size) that was bought sometime between maybe... May and August of this year (2012) at a Sam's Club.

    Welp, looks like you two have fakes... Hednic, do you still have the same bottle? Because that website is an indicator of fakeness. It's not a real website.

    It was the official site back then, when those bottles were made... Check up on the facts, before you post something like that.

    Everything I've read points to the only website printed on bottles is the www.jeanpaulgaultier.com one. No one ANYWHERE has said otherwise. I spent a couple of hours last night combing the web, reading forums and archived sites. So those are the facts as I know it. Various fakes have similar sounding websites, but jeanpaulgaultier.com is the only one everyone agrees is legit. So far, you're the only dissenter I've come across. Got any evidence?

    First of all, hednic owns a bottle with that site address, he is not really known for having to buy cheap bottles on ebay...
    Second, this thread is from 2005, back then that site existed. You do know, that sometimes websites are closed or moved, right?

    Alright, just checked the internet archive. And yes, there was a site way back then.

    God, this Le Male hunt is so damn tricky... My apologies.

    No worries, actually I should apologise as well. Sadly, I can at times be a little intolerant, when people do not follow my (very strict) logic.
    My girlfriend has to tell me every once in a while, that what might seem obvious to me, is not necessarily obvious to everybody else, and that I should not let it bother me. Sorry for being a d**k.

    My bottle does not have a web address and it is a 2003 bottle, so the web address must have been added sometime after 2003?

    Just picked up one at a local shop. Guy claims he's been using it as a tester (95% full) for at least 5 years. It has a sticker on the bottom, no website and no Gaultier imprinted across the upper back. Wonder how old it is? The batch doesn't come up on checkcosmetic.

    How many bottles of Le Male do you have? Have you compared them side by side?

    I only have one. I know it's legit, just trying to find out how old it is. Performs like a beast and I only paid 60 bucks.

    Looks like it is the yellow coloured liquid which makes it a vintage version.

    ^ Nice. So what I get from that is ... my bottle is possibly older because of the use of a sticker on the bottom. Yours looks like it's printed on the glass.

    It's original. Pre 2002 bottles doesn't show up on chek cosmetic and no website because doesn't exist for that date or before.
