    aUTHENTIC , especially if from LuckyScents ...bottle looks legit, Creed Is a juice that gets betters as it ages IMHO through Empirical exams in my part .....

    I don't trust Lucky Scent, Neimans, or Saks; when I want the real stuff I get it from China......

    Maybe I am getting jaded about all of this Creed stuff but I would suggest that if you are paranoid about getting fake bottles, even when paying full price from a legitimate and respected retailer, then you should probably just avoid anything from the house.

    bought many scents from LuckyScent and, IMHO, they are the very best of the online sellers. So fake? Not possible, IMHO.

    It's a fake, be assured.
    Just kidding! As someone said, lucky scent is as legit as it gets, so don't worry. Enjoy the juice!

    About the loose cap- I'd quote a YouTube comment -
    "What explains the loose caps on all the bottles? Variation in the plastic crop that Olivier Creed hand picks in the field?"

    This thread is being honoured with a highly coveted award - it is hereby declared the Official Fake Creed thread!
    Congrats, O.P. - your thread will live in history as the fake Creed destination thread.

    Thanks for all of the lovely pictures, btw - they will become the new standard reference material for future Creed botherers.

    Can we devote another page or two to discussing the lustrous tint of the bottle and whether one should only look at it to assess whether it's genuine in actual sunlight or whether halogen is, you know, cool if it's overcast? More stuff like that?

    Oh wow. I'm honored. lol. I'll update the OP with what I've learned so far and stuff I learn in the future on how to tell if a bottle is fake or not.
    Thanks for being so understandable, guys, and for all the quick replies. I love this community.

    OP may have ruined his juice by shining a light through it. You should always keep you bottles from bright and direct light but it sounds like people are shining bright lights into their bottles deliberately. I'm surprised to hear such terrible advice from veteran members. For best results bottles should be stored and sprayed in a temp controlled dark room.

    What things don't match up?

    Where did you buy it?

    Is there a lot number on the back lower rim of the bottle? If so, does it match the number on the box?

    Does it smell legit to you?

    Just from the pictures it looks OK but without knowing your specific concerns it's hard to help you.

    I got it from fragrancenet. I read that the millisme on the back of the box shouldn't have the accent and some of the boxes I've seen don't quit look like mine. Im obviously new to all of this as you can tell. The lot numbers match. I have a sample of it and it smells about the same.

    I'd say you're OK then. Packaging is known to change in some markets where a fragrance is intended to be sold. (614)

    So is it THE Fake Creed thread? That is, are all Fake Creed inquiries supposed to go here? Or is this the gold standard for how Fake Creed threads should be made?

    If the former, I nominate the following thread for merge:

    You can feel secure with Fragrancenet. They do not sell fakes.

    Is it possible to rename it to "Official Fake Creed Thread" or something along those lines to prevent new threads on the subject?

    Also, if people could post pictures of their authentic Creeds it would be much appreciated. I know a lot of people would find it extremely helpful.

    Default LT42B13T01 - Real Batch?

    image.jpg

    Hi

    Is The lot LT42B13T01 legitimate?
    I can only find one reference to it via google.

    Also, the back box looks suspect. Authorised Creed Retailers can sell it - I'd hope so if it were real!

    Cheers All

    First of all, where did u buy it?

    And I'm not sure but I thought lot numbers were only 8 signs long. I might be wrong though. Hopefully someone else can confirm/refute.
