    Default Just received YSL Rive Gauche - Box and Tin look brownish, is it legit

    In many pictures I see online the box and tin appear black. Mine looks brown with distinctive black bars that run horizontally. So the whole thing isnt black.

    Legit or not?

    Is this the old formulation or the new one?

    Some of the bands on mine have a brownish tint in some light.
    I just took it outside and they all looked black, but under a lightbulb the brown shows up at certain angles.

    Online it looks black but in the reality its brown or wine.

    Looks legit. I always thought the tins were black and silver, but in certain lighting, the black is in fact a dark brown.

    My 2 are like that. I think I was expecting full black as well, but it really is a licorice color. And it's amazing!

    As everyone says, the tins are brown and black.(and silver). It would be a pretty foolish error on the counterfeiters part to pick the wrong colour..

    Sorry for hijacking. How is the silage and projection with this one? And how is the smell? Its $44 delivered for 125ml so fairly inexpensive to give it a try.

    The one pictured in the OP is the original formulation.

    RGPH was so inexpensive, I would have found it hard to believe that counterfeiters would even bother.

    Looks legit to me. And if it smells like Barbasol after you spray it on, you've got the real stuff.

    Not sure of the difference between sillage and projection. It's certainly in the first division of projection and longevity in my book, and is THE bargain frag to me. (Especially as it's now been replaced by an apparently inferior and more expensive product without the iconic tin.)

    This is a must have in my opinion. I have my third tin on my way to me!

    I don't believe in safe blind buys, but this is about as safe as you can get. Smells fantastic, excellent Longevity and Sillage too

    Very dark brown is the correct colour.
