    Just received from a labelling expert...

    "Andre (...) put simply, don't waste your time with barcodes and other strange tricks in your attempts to guess the production date (about cosmetics). Each producer did his own way, it was a big mess with bottles, boxes, instructions and labellings (.....)
    The only sure things are:
    -the Estimated Sign (adopted since 1976/1977)
    -the Green Dot symbol (adopted during years 1994-1996)
    -the PAO symbol (adopted since 2003)
    if you want to have an idea about your cosmetic, use these (....) "

    Interesting. Honestly never put any credence into the labels anyway.

    You seem almost crestfallen, but I can't imagine why. Your bottle looks genuine to me. I don't think there is any question about it. But I am also convinced that mine is genuine -- the box just looks a little different (and maybe the silver batch code, too ). Fortunately, I have all the Fahrenheit I will ever need, and can end the hunt for a vintage bottle for personal use.

    Well not I'm only searching for a method that's valid for all bottles of any perfume.

    Ah, I see. I share your frustration. Fahrenheit (and maybe Dior on the whole?) seems especially inconsistent in its packaging.
    I hope Chanel is better -- I'm trying to work out how to spot early versions of No. 19.

    the worst thing is similar to this: an old perfume. bottled in a new bottle, put inside an old box, and with a modern batch.
    Vintage lovers ....go mad!
