    Default Real or fake Escada Magnetism?

    it just arrived in the mail today.

    on the back of the box i noticed arabic writing, which threw me off.










    despite it still being sealed, it feels really old, like it's been sitting on the shelf for a while..

    No expert on detecting fakes, and not familiar with the smaller bottle, but it looks OK to me. Wouldn't think that this would be one that one would need to be on the look out for as a fake, but then again anything is possible.

    As Hednic said, it doesn't look like a fake to me either.
    yea, both the bottle and the box have the same 0185EE code.

    Little known fact: Arabic writing always means it is fake. For instance, I used to think Egypt was a real place, then I saw their signs and newspapers were all in ARABIC! That threw me off, and now I know it isn't a real country. You should throw your bottle out.

    That is totally normal. The bottle used for this fragrance is really on the cheap end.

    I can read Arabic and it says "This is a fake bottle".
    Seriously though this is a grey market bottle meaning it was made for the Middle Eastern market and made its way to the US through a discounter. I'm not sure when this fragrance was discontinued but don't worry I'm sure you got the real deal. It was never popular enough to be faked.

    Looks legit, like everyone else mentioned probably a grey market bottle.

    It's real. Everyone is messing with you...the fragrance market in the middle east is very large. Sometimes you get a fragrance from there. Same stuff. I have the same thing, it's the same as yours. Vertical code, cheap feeling bottle, if the fragrance smells right you got the right stuff. Enjoy it.

    Thank you everybody :]

    After having this on my skin for some hours now I can say that I really enjoy the scent, and I do kinda get the grape soda vibe that some people are saying.

    Throw it to me! I collect all the fake fragrances that have Arabic on them. Some are so fake, they have Greek, Russian, French and other "foreign" languages, too! I will generously send you a 1.5-mL sample of Brut in return, but I guarantee that it is real!

    PS - shipping not included. You pay.

    Good deal!

    I have that scent, too, and the cheap bottle is just like that, with the wonky metal thing at the top. Even my Terre d'Hermès has a slightly loose metal plate at the top. Metal/glass junctions on fragrance bottles, other than the sprayer attachment, are generally not that good.

    Beleieve it or not I once purchased a fake before, the Box is completely cheap looking, it has that holographic look on it but it doesn't have that light purple gradient going through the middle, the center of the sprayer was white and not black as yours displays. I have a real one so I compared the two of them.

    I believe it. There are fakes for most mainstream releases ( which includes Creeds). I shake my head when someone says " LulZ...WHyz aNyONES FakEZZ VerSSACCEE dREAAMER...." . If they are selling it in perfume stores and is reasonably a decent seller....yes, there will be fakes.

    THe OP here made a pretty dumb assessment. Foreign writting has nothing to do with anything. Neither does a bottles seeming "old" or as though it has been on the shelf for a long time.

    Anyways, thanks RoyalJester for sharing. It is important for people to know that there are fakes of all fragrances out there, Escada included.

    escada magnetism mens 3.4edt, real or fake?

    I read a '12 post on how to id fakes and found it quite useful. Just like that post about a fake as was responded by reply. I have the same indications as that fake and none of the indicators of another reply, tending to confirm a second case as real, vice fake. My box bottom also has the bar code number 3393670001697 and no printing on the bottom of the bottle. The substance seems quite weak and watered down. Can you confirm real or fake from my independent description, or if my info is compared to previous post since '12 through present? Thanks!

    my pics are identical to thos 2012 posts for comparison. box bottom bar code 3393670001697, no printing on bottom of bottle and all other packaging indicators seem identical to this or those previously posted. thanksl

    additionally, the fragrance is very similar, if not the same, but it is weak, no lasting power and seems to be watered down, more like a weaker aftershave in an edt marketed bottle. thanks.
