I discovered basenotes recently after becoming interested in fragrance. I have read many threads and reviews, and have become more enthralled with the world of male fragrance than I ever thought possible. I made my first ebay purchase (A 1.7 ounce bottle of Dior Fahrenheit). The seller had many transactions (about 2500) and had almost 100% positive reviews. The packaged arrived and everything appeared to be legitimate, right down the the dark grey/black nozzle. I have a decant, and to my nose they smell the exact same. My only question pertains to the bottom of the box. There is a barcode inside a white box on the very bottom of the box, and it is printed at a slight angle. I was just curious if anyone that has a bottle of the same juice could let me know if his/her box has a barcode like this on the bottom?
Thanks for your help!
I picked up a bottle from Walmart for $40 and had the same experience. It faded within a couple of hours. I love the smell but the projection and longevity were disappointing.
