    Exclamation Another Fake Dior Homme....

    Week ago I bought on aukro.cz (something like Ebay) Dior Homme 50ml (1,6 fl) and I am very suspicious that I bought fake one. I already had Dior Homme...same size (the empty bottle) 100% original. Bad thing is that I cannot compare the juice in the original one with the other which I think is fake, because the leftover is too old. Reason why I thing that my new Dior Homme is fake is 1) on the steel tube is not engraved Dior 2) Number on the package is 0001 (first Dior homme ever made?:-) and no engraved number on the bottle , other one (real one) got 5G01 on the package and same 5G01 engraved on bottle 3) On the bottom of the fake one is engraved text hard to read and is hazy, on the real one is text clear as a day.
    I already bought some fake fragrances (Dior Higher Energy, Hugo Boss In motion green), and I was able to find out by the horrible smell, but now I am more than confused. Smell is identical….and what is worst…it lasts. If its fake, that is the first time for me to see, that somebody tried to fake 50ml (1.6fl ) bottle and juice with good quality.

    So what do you think? Is it fake?

    It is a bit suspicious. But you say it smells fine, and lasts?

    Have to agree. It looks a bit strange.

    But why would it even matter if the juice smells just fine?

    I think you have an original bottle, the quality of the production has simply gone down.
    My bottle also does not have an engraving on the bottom of the metal tube and the engraving on the bottom of the bottle is poor.
    It does smell fine though and was purchased directly from A Dior counter.

    I had an original sample from 2005 and it had a lot of iris and it was strong. The new dior is much more watered down , as the iris has been reduced a lot , that it seems like its a fake .

    So I contacted other guy, who bought Dior Homme from same seller as me. He told me, that on his unpacked bottle is same serial number 0001 as on mine. He did not smell the parfume, because he did not yet finished his old bottle. But for me it is clear sign, that I am an owner of good quality fake of Dior Homme. I dont think that anybody, especially not Dior, can release multiple fragrance with same strange serial number (0001) on the package, and without engraving serial number on the bottle.

    It was boxed, with the CD sticker at the top. Update....i finaly found serial number on the bottle....it is not 0001, but 0Q01...and is poorly engraved on the bottom of the bottle (hardly visible).

    Go and get a sample from a counter sprayed on your wrist. When you leave the shop, spray your juice on your opposite wrist. Wait and see how they both deteriorate. I am sure yours is not a fake. As you say it lasts and smells good.

    Unless you are into fragrance bottle collecting, I'd stop scrutinizing every bottle I buy & get on with the juice if I were you. Or better yet, buy fragrances from reputable bricks & mortar stores. End of story.

    I am sure the Creed house had something to do with this fake.
