    I sprayed some aventus on my shirt, and I could smell the ashy dried birch 30+ hours later after a wash! The skin is a different story, of course. When you pull off the nozzle does it have the opaque white ring? Is the embossing on the card thick? Look on youtube on how to spot a fake. Just don't get paranoid. If you like how it smells, think it smells the same, didn't pay more than $140 for it, and it lasts a long time, I would say you are alright. But I know I'd want everything in order if I was dropping my dime.
    A safer way to go if you don't have to have the bottle is buy a split here on Basenotes...

    If it smells as it's supposed to, there's nothing to worry about.

    My code on my 2012 bottle is on the back of the bottle along the lip of the bottom of the bottle.

    There should be a sticky on here detailing grey market Creed bottles for the new guys. Most of my Creed bottles don't have the lazer etched batch code on the bottle. Grey market vendors scratch them off or paint over them. Pull the atomizer off the top of your bottle. Is there a white piece of plastic underneath by the sprayer stem? If so, it's real.
