    Default Bleu de Chanel help ;)

    Hi guys!

    I've heard there are numerous fake Bleu de Chanel circulating, and i was wondering if you could help me figure out if this one is legit or fake...?

    Thank you in advance!

    the cap should be black!

    Hi! I also picked up on the cap being "silver" but i think that's just the flash from the camera reflecting?

    See if the lettering scrapes off with your fingernails. Also see if the bottom of the bottle is uniform. And invest in a better camera !

    Forgot to tell you that this Bleu is on a current auction, which ends in 10+ hours.

    I love buying fragrances at a large discount but fragrances like Bleu de Chanel and Acqua di Gio need to be bought at full retail price because they're so popular.

    Just pick it up from an authorized seller to be sure.

    I would never buy my Chanel fragrances from anywhere else but the bouique.

    I didn't buy my Bleu form eBay because there were nothing but fakes at that time for sale. Bleu is one of the most faked frags today. That particular bottle and box ... hard to tell but i wouldn't buy especially if there's no more pictures taken and more close-up shots.

    Designer frags sold in department stores are perfectly legitimate too, and quite often with a decent saving compared to shopping directly from the boutique.

    Like Francolino noted,that is probably fake. The cap is black. I would just buy that fragrance from a reputable store. It's not hard to find at all. Good luck.

    I generally avoid buying scents like Bleu from Ebay. Bleu's not terribly expensive even at full retail (the price differential isn't as pronounced as buying, say, a Creed), and the few dollars I save aren't worth the hassle if I don't get a legitimate product.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Its never worth saving $15 or so. Just save your peace of mind instead and go with hednic's advice.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Looks fake to me. The cap is a dead giveaway.
