    Default Fake chanel no 19 35ml edp

    Hi, I recently puchased a chanel no 19 35ml edp on internet and it turned out to be a fake. i suspected it as soon as i opened the cap as the smell was off and not at all what you would expect from a chanel fragrance.
    I am uploading photos with explanation for those who thought smaller sizes were safe to purchase
    fake perfume is the one in middle
    a.fake carton says vaporisateur natural
    b.doesn't give detail of ingredients
    c.doesn't say 'chanel paris' and 'chanel new york, N.Y.'
    d.way of writing barcode is different

    fake bottle is on the left side. Note the difference between these two packages

    fake on left side. Note that fake label can't be read from inside

    fake on right side
    though the bottom of fake bottle was ingraved (not a sticker), we can see the difference between the ingravings. also the bottle comes with batch code 7119 ingaved in the bittle and the carton

    very well made fake indeed.

    Thank you for the update. This is dispelling the notion that only larger sizes are faked.

    Have you smelled it though? Reason I say this is because most the differences you noted are to be expected when comparing two completely different scents, bottle styles, sizes, and production dates.

    Also, I see both "vaporisateur naturel" and "vaporizador natural", neither of which are misspelled.

    The thing that stands out the most about fake Chanels is the smell. If you know what it should smell like, I'd encourage you to test it.

    You are right that most distinct feature of fake chanel is smell. I did smell the perfume and even waited a long time so see if it changes for good. But it smelled like floor cleaner. "vaporisateur naturel" is spelled correctly, but real chanel fragrances never say "natural". Also the list of ingredients doesn't give a detailed list.
    These differences are also noted in many guides for recognising fake chanel.
    But i'll head to your advise, so i have ordered a sample vial of no 19 for comparision.

    "vaporizador natural" is absolutely the correct spelling. It's not French, it's Spanish. Also, the "guides" for determining fake Chanel all originate from one source and it's not 100% accurate, plus much of the info is wrt vintage bottles, and many generalizations are made that don't apply to all cases. Not to say it's not a valuable guide, but I wouldn't call it a Bible.

    Just curious, have you ever smelled it before?

    Make sure that the sample vial is the EDP - the EDT, EDP, and parfum are very different for No. 19.
