    Default Chanel Allure - Edition Blanche (Fake?)

    I know there are plenty of threads about fake Allure's. Plenty on Allure Sport, but info on Blanche has been difficult to come by.

    Wanted to get your oppinion on my latest purchase. Bought a 100ml bottle from Ebay for 41. Seller wasnt selling any other fragrances, had 100% feedback etc. Listing stated that it was genuine and was an unwanted gift.

    All looks ok, upon opening, no obvious faults (to my eye), its just that it only seems to last about 4 and half hrs on my skin.

    I have attached some pics anyway, so if anyone can put my mind at ease or tell me that i have an obvious dupe, it would be much appreciated.

    box looks fine, bit bashed, but that could be due to the post





    Serial number on the bottom of the box, matches that on the back of the bottle





    This is the bottom of the bottle, not sure if its supposed to look like this?



    and a few pics of the cap







    and the atomizer. It took a few pushes to get the first spray from the bottle





    Thanks again for all your help. Ive bought a few frags in the past from ebay with no probs, but with this being Chanel, i'm a bit nervous.

    Looks good. Do you get that lemon cream pie blast on the initial spray?

    Thanks for the reply.
    The initial spray is very lemony. The tart lemon smell is strong for first 15 to 20 mins. It actually makes my mouth water a bit.
    I sprains it on at 8am today, and if I get my nose really close to my skin I can just about smell it.
    Maybe I'm being paranoid about the whole fake thing.

    Looks like you're good. Edition Blanche is not a projection or longevity beast IMO. Enjoy bro!

    Just FYI, every brand new fragrance takes 3 to 4 pumps to get an actual spray to come out.

    Looks good to me, but I got the lemon for a long time and the fragrance lasted a good 9-10 hours on me (my skin does hold well though). Just one caveat, CAEB would be a preferred target for the fakers.

    Thanks for all the feedback guys, and for not talking down to me, being a newbie.
    Confident it is genuine, does smell good and in the warm office today the scent did seem to hold longer. I'll hold onto this one

    I got poor longevity from all the entire allure line. I wouldn't worry.

    Looks just like mine.

    The easiest way to tell on the "sports" is the craftsmanship of the paint and joints of the bottle.

    Just checked my bottle, purchased about a month ago at Saks, matches up with yours (writing on bottom, exactly the same, etc.).

    Yea You have a legit product for sure its just that the projection and longevity are very spotty with it.

    I've given up on the Sport line... they smell "nice" but not enough performance for the money.
