    I imagine it would be pretty hard to fake one of those giant rubber flasks without cutting it open or something. But I dont know! My first thing on the Authenticity Checklist is matching serial numbers. Check it out. Should be a printed one on the bottom of the box and one on the bottle. They should be the same. Otherwise go by smell!
    Hope that helps.

    That and I'm pretty sure every bottle comes with a code inside that you can register at the TM website. If the code works and the serials match then I'd say it's real. It'd be pretty hard to counterfeit Pure Malt.

    I've never heard of Muglers being faked. I wouldn't worry.

    Those rubberized bottles would be very difficult and pricey for someone to fake.

    Then you have no code and can't authenticate it on the circle site.

    Wait a sec, I thought you were wanting descriptions of the box/wrapping so you could compare with yours, which implies that you have the packaging. Are you saying that you don't have the packaging?

    The easiest way for us to help you is for you to take pictures of your bottle/packaging and post them in this thread so we can have a look.

    The pure malt hasn't come in, once it does I'll post of pics of the wrapping box etc... I do have 2 amen (without box) that I want to make sure they are real. I know one is but not sure about the 3.4 one.

    It's fairly easy to press fake bottles.. it's all computerized. It gets drawn up on the computer, then pressed from a machine. However as others have said, it's difficult to copy most of the Mugler bottles, due to the snug fitting rubber skin. I actually have seen knock offs of A*Men in the refillable bottle, it looked pretty much like the authentic one, only the juice was darker, and the sprayer was cheap.

    Well with my two angel men one of them smells like the sample I got from TM (1.0z) however the 3.4 is more stronger (where it hurts the eyes and nose) and smells like deodorant Clorox type lol however after 2 hours it smells like the sample and 1.0z btl

    maybe it expired?

    oh and smells I got it off BE

    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/241...-A*Men-is-fake (i know, noob thread but this is my dark past)
    but this is A*Men, never heard about pure malt, pure coffee fakes, so IMO dont worry

    I picked up a fake B*Men refillable on an auction site. The packaging looked fine, but the typeface on the box looked a little odd, sort of weird lettering proportions like you might see on something cheap manufactured in China. And the bottle had obvious floaties in it.

    I didn't even spray it because who knows what the juice was made of. Sent it back and got a refund.

    So yeah, there definitely are fake Muglers out there - not just A*Men.

    This is my 1.0 I bought from online store http://i55.tinypic.com/2je46df.png

    And this is what I bought from ebay
    This is the inside the flask metal case http://i54.tinypic.com/25iptv4.png
    Underneath the 3.4 bottle, I lift up the label so it can be readable.http://i52.tinypic.com/n341ue.png

    seems more blue but maybe its because its in the flask...
    Sorry, not much more info on it. First time I mentioned it was here actually. Where I saw the A*Man knock off was at a dollar store, most of the stuff they sell is a buck, but that fragrance was being sold for 5, and was said to be authentic. They also has some "authentic" New Era Yankee's caps for 5, though they were hard and cheap, and clearly fake.

    Can't tell much by your pics, the first one is definitely legitimate. The one from Ebay though, I couldn't tell ya. I don't purchase fragrances from Ebay, unless they are sample lots. Why buy on Ebay, when you can go to an online store, where you can read reviews on their legitimacy, and get prices even lower than Ebay.

    To this day, I still don't understand the Ebay hype. It's a one-stop-shop, big deal. It's pretty much overpriced, or nothing better than any other online distributor.

    I guess it's good if ya want something that's discontinued. But something like A*Men, I would never in a million years buy on Ebay, unless it was from a store with a site.. like fragnet's Ebay store or something.

    Once again thanks guys for all your help!

    Once you have the back off, you just pull the bottle out of the sprayer head, which stays attached to the flask.

    Looks identical to my bottle. Give it a spray and make sure it smells right would be the best way to check, but I think it's real based on the photo.
