    Default Oiginal vs. fake: Chanel No.5

    Hi Basenoters,

    I could use your big brains again. I was wondering about bottle sizes of Chanel No.5 (or any other Chanel) pure perfume concentration. I've seen sizes of 7,0 ml as well as 7,5 ml, which is the size currenly available.
    Is the bottle size an indicator for age or for fake vs. original? Does anybody has more information about the 7,0 ml bottles?

    Thank you for helping,
    Bandit

    I don't know about 7ml bottles, but on eBay you will often see sizes rounded up or down to the nearest ml. I have bought Chanel parfum advertised as 7ml, but it was the standard 7.5 bottle.

    Older Chanel bottles are 7, 14, 28 and 56 ml. There are bigger ones as well. I have No 19 in 14 and 28 ml bottles and a No 5 in a 56 ml bottle.

    Edit: By "older" I mean roughly 80's and onwards to fairly recent times. Don't know about earlier sizes.

    Thank you, tott. I suppose, the 7 ml bottles are as safe or fake as any other. Good to know.

    @sean-dt: The bottles itself are marked as 7 ml, so I guess, they really only hold that amount.

    You were both very helpfull, thanks.

    No, I wouldn't pay a lot on ebay for Chanel. But I had indeed luck getting vintage No.5 and No.19 for small money, which really made me happy. Buying Chanel on ebay is a game, like gambling in Las Vegas.
