    Default Chanel Platinum Egoiste Serial #/Code?

    Hey guys, just a quick question regarding Chanel Platinum Egoiste. I just got this fragrance off ebay a few days ago. I dont think I have a fake, but I found something a little odd. I don't seem to have a matching serial # on both the box and the bottle. The closest thing I have to a serial # on the box is on the bottom in silver font it says "124.450". Nowhere on my bottle does it have those numbers. However, it does have a 4-digit number written in white on the back of it underneath the Chanel writing. It also has "Chanel 50 ml" engraved into the bottom of the bottle.

    - I only buy from "Top Rated Sellers" on ebay who have very large listings of items for sale.
    - It came brand new, sealed in plastic and everything.

    Can anyone help me clear this up? Thanks

    FWIW, I have a 50ml bottle purchased from a Sephora brick and mortar store. It also has "124.450" on the bottom of the box and there is also a four digit number engraved on the lower back of the bottle that doesn't correspond to anything on the box.

    All boxes should have 124.460 on the bottom in silver. But near it there might also be a 4 digit number stamped/embossed into the box.

    I have 5605 embossed onto the bottom of my box. On the back of the bottle underneath the Chanel logo, there is a matching 5605. Mine was bought at Macy's.

    Yeah mine says 124.450 not 124.460 and there is no 4-digit number anywhere on my box that corresponds to the one on the lower back portion of my bottle

    Bump.

    I bought a bottle of PE from a Saks a while back. However, there is NO batch code on the box anywhere that I've noticed. The bottle has 6904. This is a taller style PE, rather than the shorter type. Now, I've only got my Chanel bottles from an official Chanel website and Saks Fifth Avenue only, and maybe ALL of them have a code on box and bottle... except this one.

    Why is there not a code on the box to match the bottle?...

    If any of you have a 100 ml PE (tall style) + box, can you please check the box for a batch code and report back?

    Thanks, .

    Can't explain the absence of a code, but if it smells fine to you, I'm sure you are OK.

    Do you still have the cellophane wrapper?
    I have 3 of the tall box versions, only one of which is still wrapped and it has the 4 digit number embossed into the cellophane wrapper at the bottom, not on the box itself.

    I've got the new short bottle in 100 ml. The 4 digit batch code is etched on the back of the bottle and embossed into the cellophane at the bottom of the box, not the box itself.

    Thanks guys. I actually thought about that - I saw a comment recently about the cellophane or w/e. Darn, I may not have saved any of that cellophane, heh. .
