    Default Need quick help with LIDGE bottle!

    Hello Gents!

    Last time I held a bottle of L'Instant de Guerlain PH eau Extreme in my hands as far as I can remember the glass bottle was in a black plastic case.
    Now. I received two tester bottles today and the edge is tinted black instead of being plastic. Is this normal?
    Every other details are fine, including cap, sprayer, batch code, and the fragrance itself.

    Thanks for your oppinions in advance!

    I think this might be the new bottle design but not sure. I think I remember reading something to this effect on another thread.

    Looks like a new formulation that, according to some people, is weaker (never tried a new formula myself) but not a fake product.

    The edge was never plastic and has always been tinted black glass. The reformulation comes in a totally clear bottle without the tint.

    As mentioned earlier LIDGE has been reformulated and a new bottle style was introduced.

    The one I have is glass as pictured above. The sides are tinted dark around the edge of the bottle though.

    The older style bottles looked like this.

    Many thanks for the replies. I knew about the latest bottle change and have read the thread. I wasn't sure about the tinted glass edge but now with your help the question has been answered. Looks like I got two bottles from 2012. I've been a L'instant fan since it came out but to be honest with you gents the silage and the longevity of these two new bottles are disappointing.
