    Question New/unusual bottle for Chanel No. 19 EdP or counterfeit (Ebay)?

    Hi! I saw this listing today for Chanel No. 19 EdP. It's a bottle I haven't seen before(round gold cap, 125ml?!). Is this something new/unusual or could it be a fake?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chanel-No19-...#ht_500wt_1130

    Thanks in advance for any advice/experience!

    I've googled images for No 19 and none come up for that bottle.

    Rather than buy through eBay I'd take up Twolf on her offer. Guaranteed juice

    I'll say! Wow! Looks like:

    (1) generic low-end niche-style bottle
    (2) PC printer-generated label
    (3) cheap cologne
    (4) green dye

    Wild!

    can't say if it's authentic or not... but that bottle doesn't look very "Chanel"-like, if you know what I mean.

    To me, it's a fake. The spacing on the label--the text and the black border--defy the rules of design.

    It screams counterfeit, IMHO, for reasons already mentioned.

    The only thing that gives me pause is the atomizer stem looks awfully . . . designer. Which is strange because the label looks wrong. But hey, at least they got the stem right!
