This thread probably deserves to be stickied, considering the no. of posts wondering if their Creed is legit.
And somehow I don't see this sort of threads appearing in the Female Fragrance Discussion Boards.
I agree it should be stickied.
If anyone has any question if their creed is real....and you know they will!!....they can just read these posts and figure it out themselves.
my stuff for sale!
But to your point about a sticky, it would then more properly belong to the Basenotes FAQ forum, one of the top two on the index of forums page I think. No stickies about any certain house, please. We could all direct the newCreedworriers to the FAQ forum.
That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.
FWIW the rear bottom lip of the GIT bottle is etched with the same lot no and it is a 75 ml (the other GIT is 120 ml).
The SA gave me the line about variability because of natural ingredients, but I eventually got a refund after they were unable to find a C4210E01 to exchange. They either didn't know about or acknowledge the signficant variability across batches.
A42B10K03 had more pineapple than C4210E01, although the dry down of A42B10K03 wasn't as nice as C4210E01. I got less citrus and more fig/blackcurrant apple in the C4210E01. I also had concerns about the intensity and longevity of A42B10K03 compared to C4210E01. I didn't want to gamble at 280 a pop, so I'll stick to my Himalaya for now.
Thanks to this forum for validating this significant and unacceptable variation.

Awesome Thread John! Just wanted to post the serial number for the MI flacon you participated in the split of. FP3310B01. From what you said the F is for flacon. The 33 for MI. 10 for 2010 and maybe B01 for batch 01? It is nice to finally have some clue what the numbers mean and makes it easier to see if a bottle is legit.
GIT flacon FP3209X01 Newer style clear flacon. I'm thinking made in 2009? If it was older juice, what would be the harm if it was sealed? I've read where Olivier suggests to purchase older bottles. Any comments or experience?
Fantastic research! Gotta love a man with passion!

Have to admit, I honestly never give these numbers a second thought, but the analysis is interesting.
Just received a 1.0 oz bottle of Bois du Portugal from Beautyencounter.com. The Lot # is CA1T05. Has anyone seen a Lot # that short? (6 characters)
Makes no sense as the production year says 2002.
Hello, anyone knows how to decode the date code on Creed's batch?
My Top 10
1. Amouage Homage Attar
2. Serge Lutens - Muscs Koublai Khan
3. YSL M7
4. Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan
5. Chanel Egoiste
6. 24 Gold by Scentstory
7. Amouage Epic Man
8. Amouage Jubilation XXV
9. Bond No. 9 New York Oud
10. Serge Lutens - Chergui

Use the Little Orphan Annie Decoder Pin...ok but seriously I don't know but there is a thread floating around talking about this I believe.
Found it for you: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/270...ht=creed+batch

my bottle I just bought today has 7 numbers so its earlier than 08? Should I exchange it for another? This is my first Creed purchase.
