    Default Golden Boy: does this look real?

    Hi boys,
    This just arrived from Germany. Does this packaging look authentic to you?

    That is definitely not Golden Boy by Dueto. Just do a simple search for images and you will see that.

    It might be another fragrance named Golden Boy by a different company. What were you expecting?

    Dior Homme stripe, 1 Million box, and Golden Boy name, I'm thinking you got ripped off

    It's clearly just a knock off 1 Million. Nothing more, nothing less.

    My thought also.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    If it's just called Golden Boy then it's probably just a knockoff. If they said it was by Dueto then you need to get your money back.

    Sigh......... Thank you everyone. I knew it as soon as I opened the box....... Ripped off again. Sadly my German was not good enough to see the various get outs...... On the eBay listing. It was under twenty euros and doesn't smell unpleasant, but neither does it smell good either. I'll give it to someone unfussy.
    Note to self: stop getting carried away and look very carefully at eBay listings.

    It was Golden Boy by Dueto I was looking for. It never occurred to me to check the packaging image on the net.... Duh! I would also have seen that twenty euros was silly cheap too. You live and learn.

    Well what does this imitation smell like? Does it compare to the 'real' stuff at all well?
