    Default Who can tell that this is a fake???

    This is a copy (A Grade). If the seller told me it's genuine I would have believed her. No, I'm not interested in buying this, but just want to ask those who own Le Male if you could notice anything that tells you it's fake?

    Default Re: Who can tell that this is a fake???

    I would not be able to tell just from this picture. I would have to compare my bottle to this bottle and my can to the can in the picture. This is a grade A fake....It is very hard to see the details even with a good picture.....This is why I purchase my fragrance from retailers that I can trust. A savings of 10 ,20, or even 30 dollars is not important to me at all. I'll pay the price for the real deal anyday.

    Because the seller said in the post. It's in Thai. I even have seen the same bottle sold on the street and the seller was honest enough he told me it's a Grade A fake and set the price for it at 750 Baht (USD22).

    Is the bulge that big on the real bottle? "Le Male" indeed!

    Well, on the real bottle and packaging, there are several key differences:

    - "Jean-Paul Gaultier" is not hyphenated on the real Le Male can fine print like it is on the fake.
    - The bottom of the can should also say " Beaute Prestige International 1995" and the full address of Beaute Prestige International, which is 28/32, Avenue Victor Hugo, 75116 Paris.
    - Newer real Le Male bottles have laser-etched text on the bottom, along with "Gaultier" stamped on the shoulderblades of the guy's back.
    - The bulge at the bottom is slightly smaller and more curved.
    - On the bottom of the bottle, it's spelled "B.P.I.", not "BPI".

    Still, this is one of the better fakes I have seen... good enough to trick the average Joe.
    Top 5 for Winter:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Back to Black - By Kilian
    3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5) John Varvatos Vintage

    It's a pretty good fake, but the stripes on the shirt are a give away for me. They're uneven and look like they've been peeled off. I probably would have fell for it though.
