    Thumbs up Creed lot numbers...SOLVED!

    So, after collecting a list or LEGIT Creed lot numbers from numerous sources, I decided to run some analysis on the Creed lot number mystery. It was pretty straight forward once I glanced at all the data.

    First off, I’ve found that from 2007 and before, Creed used the 7-character lot designation, where the last two digits do in fact represent the YEAR. I didn’t bother to delve further into the other digits because: i) this system is now discontinued, and ii) people usually just care about what year their bottle is.

    From 2008 and on Creed used the 8-character lot number designation where the first letter (usually an “A”), represents the house of Creed (some newer bottles seem to have a "C" which also stands for "C"reed).

    The following two digits represent the scent ID number in their line-up (see sample list below).

    The 4th & 5th digits represent the YEAR, so you will only see an 08, 09, 10, or 11 (self-explanitory).

    And the last 3 characters I could only speculate on because I wasn’t given enough data from my sources to determine what they meant.

    The 6th character is always a letter, and in all my data I’ve only seen either an: A, E, F, G, K, X, or Y. The last two digits are only ever an 01, 02, or 03, which leads me to speculate that this may be a region code. Why I’m guessing this is a region code and not bottle size is because the data shows that there is too much variation between these last two numbers and size.
    **EDIT: now that "04" seems to be popping up I'm wondering if this means quarter in which the batch was made (ie Quarter 01, Q2, Q3, or Q4)**

    If you want to help solve the last 3-charater problem then reply to the thread with info such as lot number, scent, bottle size, language of inserts, and location of purchase.

    Creed scent ID numbers:

    01=SVanille
    02=S&W

    10=AA
    11=AC
    12=BdeG
    13=BdeC
    14=C
    15=CB
    16=E
    17=F
    18=OSpice
    19=REL
    20=RSL
    21=SI
    22=Vetiver (1948)
    23=ZMP

    30=BdP
    31=Erolfa
    32=GIT
    33=MI
    34=NS
    35=SMW
    36=RW
    37=GV
    38=Tabarome
    39=Himalaya
    40=OV
    41=OS
    42=Aventus

    50=FdeF
    51=FdeB
    52=TI
    53=Vanisia
    54=JIE
    55=RD
    56=SF
    57=2000F
    58=Irisia
    59=Jasmal
    60=LIB
    61=LIW
    62=VIW
    63=AF

    75=CM
    76=FdeTRB

    81=Windsor

    89=LesF

    96=RC

    EDIT: So, I did some more analysis of the 7-character lot number system (from ?-2007), and speculated based on my data that the 2nd "letter" is the scent ID code:

    Examples:
    B=Erolfa
    C=GIT
    D=MI
    E=NS*
    F=SMW
    G=RW
    H=GV*
    I=Tabarome*
    J=Himalaya
    K=OV
    L=
    M=OS


    *yet to be verified, so please contribute with your numbers!!!
