    Default This DIOR HOMME INTENSE aunthentic or fake?**

    I recently bought a bottle online and noticed the "CD" sticker on top of the box is different from my July 2011 bottle. this new bottle seems to be from OCT 2013.



    HERE IS THE REST OF THE BOTTLE AND BOX:

    (BATCH CODE reads 3X01 on bottom of box, it did not come out clear in picture)

    Looks fine to me. Wouldn't worry to much about the sticker. I'm sure just a cosmetic change. Have you tried it yet? How does it smell?

    It's real and the sticker is the same as mine, which I bought at a Dior boutique. They started using that bee thing on the newer bottles. Plus, if it smells great and lasts 8+ hrs, why would you think it's a fake?

    Looks real. The fake I had last year had a terrible looking slip case and no batch number on the actual box. Additionally, when I sprayed it on myself it was absolute terrible like stale fruit juice or something. You'll know if it's fake or not by the smell.

    At the time I bought mine, I did not realize shipping from Dior Boutique in Las Vegas would be slightly cheaper. I will be sure to do that next time!
    As for the OP question, if the juice lasts 8 hours, I would hope it's the real stuff!

    If you suspect it's fake then just return it even if it smells ok.

    There are so many "is it real or fake" threads that there should be a forum devoted to those questions.

    Just go to checkcosmetics.com, select Dior, then enter the batch code. If it comes up with a manufactured and best before date, you know it's real for certain
    Well enjoying what you're wearing is crucial, it is of the utmost importance to wear something that others like as well.

    Even though OP definitely has a real bottle, this is not a good test. You don't think counterfeiters could figure out legit batch codes to print on the boxes/bottles? Especially ones as simple as the Dior 4 digit codes?

    Looks fine, compares OK to 2 bottles of DHI purchases within the last 12 months.

    I wouldn't even need to smell it to tell that it's fake. All it would take is a couple of sprays. CD has some of the best sprayers on the market.

    I dont think they would go to that much trouble as it's harder than you think. The counterfeiters are trying to fool the average joe not Basenoters who have the knowledge and resources to tell a fake from a real bottle...

    I just looked at my bottle and although it's different I think yours is fine. If it smells great and lasts long then just roll with it. If your concerned or you are going to worry about fakes after you receive them, then purchase from a boutique.

    Also I noticed a hair floating in my bottle when I just examined it.

    I think you are being rather naive and seriously underestimating counterfeiters. The most commonly faked Aventus bottles have the infamous Z01 batch code... which would only be desirable to people who know what specific batch they are looking for.

    Plus, it's not very much trouble, especially in the case of Dior.

    the writing on the bottom of the bottle looks like the way it is etched in with the bottles i have seen so looks real.

    My bottle just arrived from the LV boutique. The shipping was expensive though for about a 500 mile ride.

    How much do they charge for shipping? At least no tax, right?

    That's not bad at all... so $87 total with 2 day shipping? It probably cost me more to buy from the SF Dior Boutique at $72 + tax + transportation to and from the city...
