    Default Have I bought the correct fragrance?

    Tried Guerlain Homme Intense last week and really liked it, so bought a full bottle tonight.

    This is the bottle:



    Have I got the right version? The scent seems slightly different to what I tried (only tried one spray on this one though) but on a google search the text is indented in to the bottle, rather than written on like mine.

    I bought it from Debenhams, so it wont be a fake!

    Thanks

    I can't see the picture, but the tell-tale way is the LIDGE has black on the sides. Regular does not.

    I'm not sure if he means L'Instant - just Guerlain Homme EDP

    It says 'EAU DE PARFUM INTENSE' on the bottom, i'm just confused as to why my writing is written on, as I can find NO images where this is the case :s

    I copied and pasted the link you posted that doesn't show, it's not L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme.

    Edit: Thought you meant LIDGE, oops!

    You bought Guerlain homme edp intense looking like this:

    guerlain_homme_intense.jpg

    Then you bought the correct one!

    Indeed on the bottom it says 'eau de parfum intense'; not on the bottle!

    Honestly, I have no idea what you've got there. I've never seen any Guerlain Homme bottle like that.

    I've heard rumors (!) that Guerlain Homme is being faked these days.

    1: Guerlain - Habit Rouge
    2: Guerlain - Jicky
    3: Guerlain - Mouchoir de Monsieur
    4: Guerlain - Shalimar
    5: Knize - Knize Ten
    6: Caron - Yatagan
    7: Caron - Pour Un Homme
    8: Jean Desprez - Bal a Versailles
    9: Yves Saint Laurent - M7
    10: Salvador Dali - Dali Pour Homme

    The EdP is gun metal grey and the EdT is light silver. Also, the juice looks green from the side in the EdT version.

    It's not though. On mine the font is written on, on that picture it's embossed.

    I stand corrected.
    I would return the fragrance, and get a refund.

    I don't think Debenhams sell fakes! They probably changed the bottle to cut costs.
