    Default Green Irish tweed new box?

    Folks,


    A store near me has a new box of GIT lot a3211n01 and the gold rim on the front is no longer there. Also on the back of the bottle it says "toilet water" with the ingredients. I got a chance to smell it and it's much more potent and rich than my 2010 bottle. Do you think it may be a fake?

    The gold has been removed from all new issue Millesime bottle packaging. This was pointed out to me by a Creed specialist a few weeks ago. No doubt the seriously high cost of gold probably contributed to their decision to discontinue using gold there. You get the gold trimming only on the Royal Exclusive packaging. The juice itself is the same.

    I wouldn't worry. It's what's inside the box that matters.

    Martin,


    How about the fact it says toilet water on the back of the bottle with the lot number I'n the middle? Should that raise concern?

    No that seems to be quite common on the arabic laden boxes and bottles.

    The gold trim around the label still seems to be there on the new 250ml bottle boxes, At least here in the UK.

    Kron it has an Arabic sticker on the bottom of the bottle but says toilet water on the bottle. That's not fake?

    Nope not fake, The a3211n01 lot was the one released before my recent split bottle. I've also got an Arabic one with Toilet Water on the back from 2008 and its great.

    I'd only be concerned if the juice smelled phoney. The fake Creed Original Vetiver I had a few months ago smelled absolutely horrid--nothing like anything Creed. There must be some regional packaging variation with Creed, depending on what market the product is intended for. I know my 500ml GIT flacons came cellophane wrapped which helped keep the package clean. If not done by Creed, it could have been wrapped by the distributor. The juice is the real deal. They were the only cellophane wrapped Creed packages I've had.

    Yeh the lot was on the bottom of the box and this juice smells way better than my 2010 batch. Rich, and powerful. It was a discount store so i assume they got it from the Arabic market. I just didn't know there was such a thing.
