    Default Re: Yet another... Is my Creed Green Irish Tweed FAKE??

    Was just checking out some cheap "GIT" on Ebay. Fairly obvious the boxes are fake. Easiest way to tell is to look at the fonts. There are obvious differences in the cursive font for Green Irish Tweed (Looks like Yreen Irish Tweed). If I were counterfeiting, I would make sure to not overlook this detail... but I'm sure they just tried to find a close font available on their computers. Also the kerning (spacing) is different subtly between letters within all words and also the box fonts themselves. The "e" next to the 120 mL is also quite different, with the real box having rounded letter edges with some unequal weighting on the sides. When you look closely at the alignment of the green sticker on the white box, the edges are not as well aligned as on a real box on the top one, at least, and the cut of the sticker seems less well aligned with the gold box just inside the edges. Wonder what these knock-offs smell like... maybe just bottle up some Aspen?

    Default My first Creed Purchase.. Fake?

    I just purchased a 4oz Creed Aventus from Fragrancenet, However compared to the decant I had prior from a member on this forum, the longevity only lasts around an hour, and projection is horrid, what made me question it besides the poor longevity and projection was the logo, it seems cheap, and i've noticed other creeds bottle logo protrude.

    here are some pictures.

    Looks OK to me. Bottom line - if you're not happy with it, see if you can return it. Your satisfaction is what is important.

    Maybe you can get the batch code from the person that you got the decant from and call Fragrancenet and see if they can swap it out

    I have yet to try Aventus (samples on the way) but if yours is only lasting an hour on you, I would definitely try to get your money back or swap it for something else. No fragrance is worth a couple hundred dollars if it only lasts an hour.

    If you're unhappy it may be best to ask for a refund - if you just spray more it's going to turn out a lot more costly than intended!

    I've actually been curious about the little bb's or w/e. Is it to prevent leakage and/or air from getting into the bottle?

    Also, when a frag is sprayed (typically?) are they designed to let air come IN the bottle? An exchange of fluid for air?

    You should ask others if they can smell it on you. I seriously doubt it's only lasting an hour. Also try spraying it on clothing... I bet it will last at LEAST a few days on clothes. Also don't spray so close to your nose (i.e. neck area). Try chest, inner elbows, wrists, abdomen, etc.

    I think you're good. I see the spray mechanism has the bb in the sprayer, I doubt the fakes have them... even the good ones.

    I don't think it would even be worth faking the 1oz for counterfeiters to be honest.

    P.S. You know you could have picked up a 1 oz decant for like $60-$65 right?

    Default My Creed Aventus - fake or real?

    My girlfriend purchased Aventus from quite a reputable store here in the Philippines and I am quite upset with the condition of the bottle. At the back, the black paper or layer of paint seems to be falling to bits, like I could easily wear the colour off. It hasn't been a week since I've had my bottle. The batch number is a42b11s01 and the juice seems to be good. I'm just a little concerned about the bottle. Could I have gotten a fake?
    Thanks so much for your input!

    Default Re: Creed Queries - is my bottle genuine?, etc.

    i know that the green irish tweed i have is authentic, but i'm having some gripes about it.

    the bottle smells less fresh than i remember the sample last year to be. there's less lemon verbena than i remember there to be. there's a good bit of iris and basil, giving it a woody-green vibe to it. it still has a freshness but not as much as i remember.

    possible theories.
    1. my memory of it years ago was rosier than it is now
    2. a full spray from a full bottle is more accurate than a dabber on a sample
    3. it's winter time and the temperature won't bring out the best of this fragrance
    4. bad batch

    any insight guys?

    Question Is my Creed Himalaya Authentic?????

    I bought this Creed from an someone who claims it to be authentic. I not real familiar with the creed bottles themselves so I can feel at ease that this is real. Some things that concern me is I see no batch number. From what Ive heard it should be located on the bottom rim at the bottom. Also the creed letters on the front looks like braille in some of the letters creed. I would expect the letters to be without any defects of that nature. The cap is clear I don't know if was a tester and just replaced with one. The Himalaya caps Ive seen is silver in color this is a 2.5 fl so I don't know if its suppose to be clear. The things that look real is the white rim around the top and how it sprays. So if someone can tell me if by the pictures that this bottle is authentic please do so thanks.

    To my untrained eyes, it looks like the cap has been replaced. It SHOULD have a batch number on the back of the bottle on the bottom brim, but I wouldn't know for sure because my bottle is 4oz and I don't own any 2.5oz other than Royal Oud. How does it smell?

    Its kind of hard to say Ive never smelled Himalaya before. It kind of reminds me of a designer cologne, simply because I have a couple of creeds and it lacks those distinct characteristics of a creed cologne. I cant be for sure once again because I have never smelled it.

    Default weird aventus smell

    Ok, firstly, I'd like to apologise in advance for creating another Aventus thread, but had to bring this up to see if anyone else has had this experience.

    I was in a dept store and they had a new tester bottle out, so decided to take a sniff, and instead of the pineapple note on top, I got what smelled more like a vicks vapour rub smell.

    Not sure what the batch number was, but I'll check next time i'm in the store. Anyone else gotten that image from any Aventus batches?

    Ludicrous if you ask me , how can you say is fake and pay retail price for it and especially if gotten a LuckyScent...there are many variables regardless if gotten through gray market but to say Arabic lettering denotes fake is obsolete for there are those in English which are bona fide fakes but tubbing or crooked engraving unravels them ; what do you think that the people whom dedicate in fake contraband are sleeping on this and moderating so often to upgrading their skills...best test is knowing how an authentic juice smells then basing it on that plus all other prime indicators pointing at being fake or real....peace

    Definitely authentic... Seen lots of fakes but never a 2.5 oz or a 1oz... Bottle might have been a tester and seller used a random spare cap to make it look more appetizing to a potential buyer. To most buyers of niche fragrances bottles having caps are a real positive.
    Also an explanation for unlabeled lot number would be some older bottles in my experiences like 7 or 8 years old or even older... had no visible lot number markings on the bottle especially some older testers... That would explain longevity being down from the creed norm. My guess is you have an older bottle of himalaya in your possession.

    Default Fake Creeds from a very famous online store?

    Hey guys, last week I received two Creeds from a VERY FAMOUS online store, I bought Millesime Imperial and Original Santal, but I'm in doubt if they are original, the name is in the end of the text to avoid that it take influence in your answer.

    Let's go to the pics, I will try to show all details:

    Original Santal:

    This was the main responsable for my bad feelings!

    *1) It came sealed in cellophane:





    *2) The letters are diferent from all other Creed box I've seen:



    Compare with my real GIT:


    On the top of the box you can see that the Creed letters have a texture that in my box of GIT doesn't


    The back of the box is diferent too


    Here is the bottom:


    *3) The card of James and Olivier portraits are diferent from the GIT and one real Aventus that I had, the size is diferent and the letters between the two portraits are diferent too:



    *4) The inside part of the box has some red lines that indicates that the bottle left ink on the cardbox:




    *5) Best evidence that I think is that the red part of the cap is not fixed it's possible to move 3║ to the left or the right:




    * Other pic of the bottle:









    Millesime Imperial

    This one has the same problems of the Original Santal, but theres no lines colors inside of the box like OSand the logo plate of the cap is fixed.

    Some pics of MI:

    They look ok to me, but I'm no expert. If you feel they are not legit return them. Packaging changes all the time and recently Creeds has (thus a number of is my creed legit threads).

    Have you smelled/tested either of them out? Do the smell last as reported?

    They look fine to me also. Bottom line as suggested above, if you're not happy, return as your satisfaction is the most important.
