    Default Le Male owners - have you got a min......

    Hi

    Ive just recieved a new bottle of le male and it might just be me losing my mind, but on the last bottle I had, im sure there was something etched onto the underneath of the bottle where as this one is blank?? Could someone flip theyre bottle over and have a wee look for me to confirm, cheers

    What is it about buying scent on the internet that makes me so paranoid lately!

    What is "etched" on the bottom of mine is:

    PARFUMS JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
    EAU DE TOILETTE
    75 ML. 2.5 FL. OZ.
    MADE IN FRANCE
    (some code numbers) PARIS

    On the bottom of my bottle I have a "sticker" that reads

    Parfums Jean Paul Gautier
    Eau de toilette 75ML-2.5 oz
    BPI 75116 Paris

    When I peeled the sticker off, it was a flat bottom with no etching.

    The bottle use to have a sticker and that was replaced with etching I guess to help reduce the counterfits.

    Did you buy your bottle at a discount perfume shop? Has stated in a prior tread they some times remove bar codes and sticker from their bottles.

    I actually bought the bottle off ebay. It came in its tin and was 'hard' cellphane wrapped. Thinking about it, there was also no documentation in the tin neither. I am pretty sure the scent is original but if it IS a counterfeit, theres no way im letting this guy mug me on ebay.

    What do you think....is Le Male a well known counterfeit problem?

    Buying in person at the store for me from now on >

    My bottle doesn't have a sticker or etching, but there is writing in a grey/silver color saying bottle size, made in france and frag name. I bought in person in a department store so it is legit. Also, there are not any pimples on the bottle of mine, but I have a smaller bottle (40ml), not sure if that matters...

    edit: I didn't realize how old this thread was until I posted .

    My bottles are etched same as the ones above.I can't confirm this, but it is said that JPG is the most copied/counterfit cologne on eBay. It is also said that many are pourly done and easy to spot. You know the juice, give it a test run. If the juice is fine and your still not happy there's only one thing to do, return it.

    Yes, the thread was started in 2005, but what the heck, I'll post anyways. Perhaps this will help put at least one person at ease in the future! This is a pic showing bottom of my bottle (40ml, '1.3' oz size) that was bought sometime between maybe... May and August of this year (2012) at a Sam's Club.
