    Default Chanel ANTAEUS request

    Hi my friends,
    I'd like to know some 4-digits batch-numbers of your Antaeus vintage bottles (edt or aftershave)

    All I need is the batch number (4-digits) and to know the presence (or lacking) of barcode.
    All bottles with the long list of ingredients on the box were produced after 2004, so not properly "vintage".
    Thank you very much!!
    Andre

    Mine EdT is probably not vintage, as it is from around 2005 or 2006.
    It has the long list of ingredients, ending with ALPHA-ISOMETHYL IONONE.
    It has a bar code printed on the back of the box [13 digits]
    and he batch code on the bottom of the box is 5603
    It is made in France.

    I own four bottles of Antaeus. I am assuming that the batch code is the number faintly written on the back of the bottle near the bottom.

    Three of them are older bottles with the concentration written above "Chanel" and no list of ingredients. But they all have bar codes. Two of these are EDTs with batch codes 0413 and the other one is an after-shave with batch code 9549.

    The fourth bottle is an EDT with the concentration written near the bottom of the box and a brief list of ingredients (alcohol, aqua, parfum). This also has a bar code. The batch code for this one is 1702.

    I have a 50ml splash EDT purchased prior to 1992(probably mid to late 80's). The bottle has batch code PPA1

    This is very strange, usually Chanel bottles sport a 4-numbers code, with a few exceptions for Chanel nr.5

    You'll be surprised then because one of mine has a 3 digit bar code. 09K I think.
    I'll check later when I'm home.

    Mine has a 3 digit code as well, but the code is on the bottom of the bottle. It's hard to read, but I believe it's FJ1.

    I kindly ask to post a picture of these batch codes with letters instead of numbers: it should mean different factories (or production labs).

    Uhm.. I wonder if the two different Chanel factories in Europe and USA worked separately, each with own different codes.

    Sorry, duplicate post. This photo uploader sucks.

    I don't understand why the uploaded image is so blurry. It is sharp when I view it as it is on my computer.

    I guess I'll do the photobucket link thing and see if that looks any better:

    Andre,

    Great post on your blog. I have a bottle with no green dot but with a barcode and a batchcode of 3020.

    This doesn't align with your data because you state the green dot was dropped in 1992. That cannot be possible according to your data as 30xx begins in October 1993.

    Kind Regards

    the "as-usual" recycled old boxes, I guess anyway, I'll put a note on it. Thank you for the info!

    Has anyone noticed that the bottle in post #13 has a cap ornament different than mine.

    Mine is an engraved chanel logo whereas in post # 13 it is a semi-reflective plate with the Chanel logo engraved.

    Or is it because mine is splash and the one in #13 is spray?

    Andre, I just found a nice 100ml bottle on eBay and it arrived today.
    Is this 1987? If so what month?
    No bar code or green dot. Batch code on the back of the box is difficult to see but it says: 56F.

    Bottle is 90% full and the scent is extremely rich and heavy.

    year 1990 or 1998 , it depends where the words "Eau de Torilette" are, above or under the word "CHANEL" (on the box)

    I collect Men's Fashion magazines from the 80s and 90s. I've never seen it advertised after 1988. I think its demise coincided with release of Pour Monsieur Concentree in November 1989.

    Thanks a lot! So my fragrance is nearly 30 years old wow.
    I had emailed Chanel customer service, and some bimbo gave me such a ridiculous response.

    That's correct. It's also fairly difficult to find now. Hang on to it.
