    Default Montblanc Individuel fake?

    Just picked up a bottle of individuel from a well known and vetted on line retailer.

    When I put the batch code from the box into check fresh, it gives me a date of 01-08-2010 (pic attached).
    When I put the batch code from the bottle, it gives me a date of 06-04-2001.

    On top of that, the tube from the atomizer does not curve into the corner like the rest Iíve seen.

    Any input?

    I tried batch code 08H22H122 on checkcosmetic.net which gave a date of 2 of May, 2017. That sounds more reasonable since Mont Blanc Individuel was only released in 2003. Looks like Checkfresh had this code wrong in their database (neither of these sites are infallible).

    edit: Of course the box and bottle should have the same batch code. Possibly the seller (either accidentally or not) put a different bottle than originally came in that box?
    Not sure about the sprayer in the picture..

    Okay, awesome. Yes the batch code on the bottle matches the box, so I presume itís not a fake?

    I thought the same thing as well, but who knows. I guess if thereís money to be made, people will try their best to fake it.

    I agree.

    Did you notice that the flammable logo on the bottom is missing? Most boxes of Mont Blanc Individual has the flammable mark to the left of the barcode. Any ideas?
