    If it smells the way you expected it to smell, congrats to you on your purchase!

    Unless your pics are scratch 'n' sniff, it's not possible to give you a valid answer.

    The only basis for proposing validity of your purchase would've depended on the appearance of factory packaging.

    Presumably you realize your pics don't show Creed packaging, yes? As in, this is a commonly-available aftermarket bottle, atomizer and homemade label.

    So.... Short of a run in a GC there's not much chance of answering your question.

    Can I just assume you knew all that before posting your question? Thus, joke post.

    Oh, maybe you were serious. Ok, so before you go blow up the seller, accusing them of selling a fake, be aware that it may be actual Aventus juice.

    It's common to sell juice like this in aftermarket bottles, at a lesser price (the aforementioned "decant").

    Unless the seller advertised this as new, or original, then this may be a valid sale.

    It's 100% certain it's not Creed packaging. Whether you got real juice is only as sure as the seller is reliable, unfortunately there's no way to tell looking at your pics. . On this board, the splitters tend to be highly reliable. On eBay... Not so much.

    I'd roll with Hednic's advice, if it smells good, go with it. Most fakes are obvious.

    I was unsure whether it was real by your first picture. But after reviewing the pictures of you holding the bottle in your hand at different angles ... I can honestly say that I think this is a 100% real Creed. Congrats!

    So this is one of those random manufactured bottle versions?


    I left him good feedback anyway , sprayed z901 batch and ebay z901 batch on same material. I just wish my olfactory fatigue wasn't kicking in but their longevity is about the same. Seems good!!!
