    Default HELP: Is this a fake Chanel Platinum Egoiste?

    Hi guys, I am new to this forum,

    I have just purchased a Chanel Platinum Egoiste at my local store today and would wish to check if my bottle is a product of counterfeit good. I have tried to search for authentic pictures of the original PE and found that my bottle and packaging looked slightly different. I wonder if it is a new packaging, or is it fake?

    1) Should the bar code be at the back of the box instead of the bottom?
    2) There is the serial code on the back of the Chanel bottle, but not embossed. It was printed instead and already faded off slightly. (the serial code was embossed on the box and matched the fading code on the bottle though) [The serial code on the box was embossed below the bar code at the bottom of the box]
    3) The wordings on the box were not embossed.
    4) The information on the back of the bottle were not embossed either.
    5) The bottom of the bottle doesn't have Chanel embossed? It's so clear and ... clean.

    Nothing was embossed, anywhere =/

    I need your professional views on this issue as I am no guru when it comes to Chanel perfumes. Please let me know if you need any more pictures to clarify.

    Thank you all in advance!

    It looks fake to me. My bottle has Chanel and some other information embossed on the bottom of the bottle. Also, the serial number is embossed on the bottom of the box as well as printed on the back of the bottle.

    I have the new Platinum Egoiste, i bought it in summer last year, the bottom of the bottle is clear, nothining written, on the back of the bottle is the batch code (the same one is on the box beneath the bar code) and has something little written chanel/egoiste/paris/new york etc. the batch code is ok on checkcosmetic
    So i think your PE is ok.
