    Default How to spot a fake Chanel pour homme ?

    Hi guys there is someone that is selling some colognes without boxes as apparently he buys them from a store whom sell them because the boxes get worn out or damaged to sell. I'm thinking of getting Chanel allure pour homme I want to be ready to spot if its fake to give it back or no .Would you guys post photos of details of the real bottle like cap, underneath etc! Thanks so much

    Is the savings substantial enough that you are willing to take the risk?

    I have a crazy idea. how about you go to a real store and buy a real bottle? Because: :

    1- You won't start yet another "Did I get a fake [insert name here]" thread
    2- You are inexperienced with the real bottle
    3- You are inexperienced with the real scent
    4- Saving $20 instead of going to Macys is not worth the time, aggravation, obsessive behavior, and money you will waste.
    5- You will most likely be buying a fake
    6- Macys will give you a free gym bag

    I thought he meant Pour Monsieur, actually, because most people would just say Allure if they meant Allure Homme.

    There is a seller in Spain who is currently selling what looks like vintage Egoiste - except she made the made the mistake of mentioning that it was bought in 2007.
    When I asked her about this, she told me that it was a 2007 bottle and had just grabbed a random image off the web of an Egoiste box.
    She had no idea that the box was for vintage. I explained about lettering etc and advised her to change the description otherwise she is going to have one very disappointed customer.
