    Default Date of manufacture?

    I'm looking for the date of manufacture of Givenchy and don't know whether I'm supposed to use the UPC or the MPN. The MPN(122502) gives a date of January 2011, and the UPC(885892025788) gives a date of January 2008.
    Which one am I supposed to use?

    I'd hazard a wild guess and go with the earlier date as the date of manufacture.

    There's usually a code with number or letters beneath or behind box, but take note these are semi indented on bx or beneath or back of bottle...

    Thanks. I've asked for the code that's stamped, and not printed, on the box.

    If you are using this site use the numbers under the bottle. On my bottle of Organza Indecence there were 4 numbers in white on the bottom, 0001, it says my bottle was manufactured January 2010.

    Is that same number printed or stamped anywhere on the box? I don't think they're going to open it to get the code.
    There's also this site.

    I didn't think they were on the box, but I just realized they are. On the bottom flap there are some imprinted numbers, they are on the right, 0001. I checked my bottle with your site and it said January 2010 just like the other site.
