    I guess you meant first reformulation?

    Still I didn't read nor see about a sticker made in Italy DG pour homme bottle of 2000-2008 with a four (or other) digit batch code instead of six. Anyone?

    it means year 2011;

    Maybe the solution is here....
    (translated from italian)

    ---------------------------------
    "Ciao Mario,
    could you explain me some things about batching codes (CUT)"


    Ciao Andre,
    so you have some spare time huh?
    The main answer is that after the switching to P&G many things changed, and many others were completely messed up.
    Briefly:
    Production line in Italy closed in 2007 or 2008, and another opened in Germany, I guess in 2008.
    Italian bottles since 2007 had the 4-digits batch code (for example 7832), and then the UK ones;
    German bottles, on the contrary, had the old 6-digits batch code but, pay attention! , it was written using white ink (not the usual black) .

    For example in this moment I have in front of me a German bottle (no silver logo, but embedded letters) with white ink code : 803452 (year 2008)


    So you can find German bottles reporting " 8XXXXX " (six digits in white) it means year 2008
    if you find " 8XXXXX " (six digits in black ) (only italian ones in this case) it means year 1998 (CUT)

    Ok for your other statements: best bottles are ones produced the pre 2000-era. It's very simple to identify them, because the sticker under the bottle is written in italian only.
    If you can't find these old gems, other Made in Italy or Made in Germany are still acceptable. But avoid the "Made in UK" ones, very ugly (CUT)"

    There are also 'Made in Italy' bottles from 2008 (6 digits; I own one of these). It was the transition year to the German bottlings!
    As of 2009 there are only 'Made in Germany' bottles (till UK 2012).

    And the made in Germany juice is to me 'not acceptable' compared with any made in Italy bottle.

    only for info:
    -----------
    Hi Andre,
    you're right,
    I have two "made in Germany" bottles, without any sticker, and both sport a six number code on the bottom of the bottle, numbers are painted in white. First number is "8" , I guess it means year 2008.
    Cheers,

    Here are 5 bottles of By Man by D&G

    (had 2 more 3. 4oz bottles with 4 digit codes too but sold them)

    4 of which have 4 digit codes and 1 with a 6 digit code. None of them start with a number, lol.

    Hmmm… My bottle of D&G The One has a 2255 code and it was made in the UK. Does this mean it was made in 2012?

    haha

    Every bottle of By Man says "made in Italy".

    Just checked my bottle of D&G Pour Homme and it has '1199' Made in Germany at the bottom.

    1199 = year 2011
    2255= year 2012
    about these, we are sure

    the classic 6-number code 218203 should mean "2002"
    the other ending with ..04 should mean 2004...but it's only a guess.

    The the 1st letter is a 'Z'.

    You can tell it's definitely a 'Z' because there is a '2' in the batch # there as well. 'Z18203'.

    (If you have a Mac, hold command and + to zoom)

    As for the 4 digit codes, I was thinking the XX04 was meaning 2004 too... but who knows.

    2 of the 3.4 oz's are 'HS04' and the other 3.4 oz is 'HF04' with the 1.7 oz being 'DF04'

    We'll have to ask some of the By Man experts in here what their take is and compare their batch #'s

    Bought this bottle on eBay a few months ago. This is a 125ml tester bottle, made by P+G, but made in Italy. The writing on the back of the bottle is engraved.

    Any comments, queries etc. most welcome.

    Thanks

    ByMan was discontinued in 2005-2006, so most likely XX04 means 2004.

    P&G acquired D&G fragrance division during the second half of 2006, at this point your bottle is likely 2007 or 2008.
    Not excellent as those produced before 2000, but still very good: you lucky enough to get the last good ones, before the ruin

    Exactly true! As I myself have a gift set of D&G PH with silver sticker on the bottle bought in 2008, which is Made in Italy by P&G and has a 4-digit code starting with 7.
    How come this one?

    I'm seeing 5 ingredients haha.

    ..and woah, huge difference between the 2 scents. The quality of ingredients is unmistakeable in the older bottle.

    Ok, here's the bottom of my vintage Pour Homme, I would swear I got this before the 2004 listed on checkcosmetic.net. Note the 7 digit batch code, I know it's authentic because I bought it retail, in person, from Von Maur.

    This info is so cool! I just checked my bottles and I have 2004, 2006, 2008 formulations all made in Italy but I have a 2010 formulation that has the sticker? Actually, all my bottles have the sticker and are made in Italy. I thought the new formulations came out sometime in 09? If I have a made in Italy with the sticker, how was it produced in 2010?
