    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!

    I have never in my life saw that cap for PE. It should be a plastic rectangular, chrome, top the same width of the bottle.

    Thanks for the reply! Yeah! I have the rectangular, chrome cover for the bottle. I removed it in the pictures. The black portion is the neck connecting to the atomizer.

    But I have a weird feeling this bottle with all the ambiguous tellings ...

    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.

    Looks fake to me also. Too many things are wrong with it.

    Do u mind letting me know which areas are portions that are definitely wrong? I'll go approach the shop tomorrow, but I think they might deny the fact.

    Yes, my PE has embossed Chanel and other numbers on the bottom as well.

    It might be worth buying an authentic, sealed bottle from a reputable retailer and taking it with you, still sealed and open it in front of them if they insist the product is authentic, which it obviously isn't. At least that way, you can point out the differences to them.

    I think you should return that bottle. It doesn't appear to be 'kosher.'

    Thanks for the help guys!

    I went back to the store and informed them, but they claimed that it is authentic and that Chanel might have changed their design recently. Bullshits. I went to another outlet they have and there is this nice lady who agreed to let me exchange for other perfumes. Thank God.

    Thanks for all their help again !! All ended well.
