It looks legit to me.
I just got in the mail my Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin sold and shipped from Amazon (not a third party). I think it is real but something isn't right. There are no serial numbers on the box or the bottle. Both the box and the bottle have something scratched off so I figure that is where the serial numbers were. I will upload pics. The scent also seems weak. I smelled it in a discount shop at the mall a couple days ago and could pick up the heavy anise note. In mine, I cannot distinctively smell it. I have not tested the longevity. Please let me know what you guys think. Futhermore, the plastic wrapper had a green circular sticker on it with a few numbers. Thank you.
Amazon completely refunded my money and told me to throw the bottle out without any issues. Amazing customer support like always.
I apologize for all the pictures. I just want to show everything.
It looks legit to me.
Nothing indicating that it isn't legit. The serial numbers were removed due to it being grey market merchandise and the dealer was covering their tracks.
This is quite common. Something to do with avoiding hassle when importing/exporting fragrances from non-official suppliers (if I remember right). I wouldn't worry.
Anyone who goes through the trouble of creating a fake LL Au Masculin deserves any money they would take from me.
If you're going to freak about the legit-ness of every frag you get, then don't buy on ebay or other potentially unreliable channels.
I figured shipped and sold by amazon and not a third party would be a pretty reliable source.
My guess: real but has been through many hands.

You shouldn't be so paranoid. I assure you Amazon doesn't sell anything fake, since most of their stuff is dropshipped direct from the manufacturer.
Yeah I thought it was real but probably grey market. I get the feeling it is pretty old because it isn't that strong. I sprayed it about 20 times and it is a much stronger than before but still not like a new bottle. Oh well. I got a free old bottle of Lolita Lempicka basically.
Next on the list of purchases. Body Kouros!
So you got a free bottle from being paranoid. Good for you.
Can't smell the anise ?The scent also seems weak. I smelled it in a discount shop at the mall a couple days ago and could pick up the heavy anise note. In mine, I cannot distinctively smell it.
I can certainly see where you might be suspicious.
But yeah: a ton of those 3.4s coming down on e-bay recently. Not there aren't always a lot of them there, but whoever it is who is selling the ones that start off at 0.99 sure has a lot of them to move.
