    Default Deciphering Creed serial numbers.

    Last week I purchased a 1 oz. bottle of Creed Himalaya.
    Since then I have done some research on this forum and learned that the last two digits of the serial number represent the year it was made.
    My new bottle has "01" as the last two digits.
    This should mean that it came from a batch made in 2001. Is this true? Especially when I believe Himalaya was launched in 2002, and the 1 oz. bottles are relatively new.

    Can anyone help me decipher the Creed serial numbers and confirm that I have ten year old batch of Himalaya?

    Thank you.

    They are lot numbers, not serial numbers. The last 2 digits, until I learn otherwise, indicate which quarter of the year the fragrance was bottled. The year is before the letter before the 01. For example my 75ml bottle of Original Vetiver is lot# A4009Y01. It was bottled in 2009, 1st quarter. It is Creed fragrance #40. At this point I have no clue what the A or sometimes C designation stands for. There was a slightly different scheme prior to 2007 and you can read more about it by doing a search on Creed lot numbers or Creed batch numbers as there was an excellent post at the beginning of the year on this issue. I hope that helps. Martin

    Thank you Martin.
    This explains my A3909Y01.

    Just a note, some bottles and flacons don't have any lot numbers! I'm also thinking the last 2 digits might also represent batch run of fragrance for that particular year. Martin
