    Question Please Give Me Your Chanel Batch Codes For A Fresh Analysis

    I would love for people to give me, in total, a few hundred Chanel batch codes. All I need, at a minimum, are the codes themselves, although any additional information is extremely welcome, including what fragrance it is and when you bought it, or an estimated age, etc.

    I really need a lot of these things. If 20 collectors give me 10 each, I'm set.

    Building on Andre's work, I am hoping to pin down with certainty the precise working of the full codes.

    As I was using two online batch code checkers today, I realized that one doesn't work for Chanel, and the other is not completely precise. In fact, after reading Andre's work, where he always maintains a certain wonderful scientific caution about his leading theory of these codes, and experimented to disprove a contender scheme, I'm not 100% sure that the working checker site is accurate. Furthermore, as a (somewhat former) encoding geek, I have postulated some finer points about Chanel's system and code history, and I want to see if their geeks did what I think they did.

    Thus, I simply need a bunch of codes, preferably with the name of the fragrance and approximately when you bought it. I'll take it from there.

    Recent stuff (2015-2017) is especially useful, as is 2007-2009 and 1999-2001, because these are critical dates in the scheme. No.5 L'Eau, for example, is very helpful.

    Thanks! I will bump this occasionally to get enough data.

    2) Coromandel (white code 101.820, black code 5201) - bought in 11/2012
    3) Bois des Iles (white code 101.410, black code 4701) - also bought in 11/2012
    4) Bleu de Chanel EdT (black code 107.480, indentation code 7602) - bought in 2015 or 2016?
    5) Allure Homme ( black code 127.450, indentation code 3101) - bought from BN market in 2012.

    A few other splash types that I don't have the box so cannot find codes.

    Thank you, Donna! Those are very helpful, too. That last parfum is intriguing. I am banking on that one being a very slow seller. That one will be an important test case.

    This is in some ways a form of the birthday paradox. In just a small number of samples, I'm already seeing critical cases.

    Yes - your Egoiste would be November of last year (2016) by both my reckoning and the working checker. The Allure Homme would be January 2010.

    Thanks, Vmaster, gandhajala, and HerrKirsch! These are great, and are providing some really great test-cases.

    Some of these vintage cases are going to get multiple dates, that have to be chosen from based on bottle, box, ingredient list, etc. Depending on HOW vintage HerrKirsch's vintage Égoïste is, the date could be several possibilities. Based on just the information given, there is no way it is more recent than 2000, and more likely closer to 1990. I have not nailed down the earlier sequence yet, but I expect this case will help.

    We are now entering a period of time where codes recycle enough that "early", "middle", and "recent" vintage all have meaning!!!

    Thanks, yellowtone - that is awesome! That vintage No. 5 is going to be uncertain, but it provides a disprovable assertion upon which we can build. If the pre-millennial sequence is continuous back to the 70's, there will be specific dates proposed, and we may be able to use photos to pin it down if needed. We will need multiple older vintage bottles of various fragrances to make the case, ultimately.

    Thanks, CB! Those are going to be helpful. The 4-digit codes are the main ones I'm interested in. For the more recent Chanels, the numbers are etched into the glass, too. You can see the number if you hold the bottle up to the light and examine it thoroughly at various angles. I'm not certain when that practice began or became universal on larger bottles, but I always check, no matter the age, just to be sure. It is even on my set of parfum minis, although printed and not etched.

    Excellent, HFMIII !!! Very helpful! I'm glad you disambiguated for me on the purchase date, because those are great examples of the fact that we are in a code recycle window where many BNers have 8-10 year-old bottles with the exact same codes. Not quite vintage, but not fresh, either. "Pre-vintage"!

    We're up to 59 examples - excellent response! Very happy for the assistance!

    Thank you, Trilby! Those codes are exactly what I would expect based on the dates you provided. I am learning a lot about Chanel's stocking by doing this. It's clear that they try to keep the juice moving and fresh, even for the slow sellers. Nice!

    The Pre-Exclusif, 75mL bottles (with gold band) of Cuir de Russie etc have batch codes engraved on the bottles. These would be 90s, early 00s.
    In the 80s, it seems, the batch code was only stamped (not printed) on the box. At least for No.5.
    We need BNer Tott to come back.
    Looking forward to your results!

    Yes - Tott is sorely missed. I would swear he had his own suite at the Chanel boutique. If not, he deserved one!!!

    Just tried that method on 7 different bottles and none of them were etched.
    I guess my bottles are too old? Or maybe

    I haven't seen BNer Boy Chanel around for a while, but he might be helpful.

    - 120.180

    Sycomore Eau de Toilette - purchased by me this year, but purchased in boutique by original owner in early 2013

    - 6201 (presumed Feb. 2013) // etched on bottle // printed in black on bottom of box

    I haven't seen BNer Boy Chanel around for a while, but he might be helpful.
    If you're buying vintage, it makes sense. My oldest Chanel is a pre-2000 Allure Homme of definite legit origin. I'm missing tbe box bottom, but it has a batch code of "AH1" stamp-printed on the glass on the bottom. So things definitely get weird back then.
