    Default Creed Aventus Tester. Should i buy it?

    Hello everyone. I'm the new one in this huge fragrance family and I started to build my fragrance collection and already got some good stuff. I have a question about Creed Aventus. I want to buy Creed Aventus tester bottle. As you know this perfume is very expensive especially for a student like me. But I really like to wear this fragrance so I decided to buy tester bottle for the affordable price. I really don't know how looks authentic Aventus so guys please help me. Is this real or fake one.

    Normally testers don’t have caps, does the box have a sticker signifying it’s a tester with Creed and batch code info?

    Actually it may be fake, according to the picture(s).

    Batch code 16C01, they've well 'long' had the thinner tubing inside the bottles - they didn't have the thick old tubing in at that time.

    Avoid.

    Edit: I just noticed the Montale on the left in the pic is fake as well.

    Do you have recourse to return it should you find out when you get it that it was not what you expected?

    That just happened. Man, your good. Double knock down. 1 bullet, 2 wounds. Kentucky heart shot. I'm impressed, and humbled all in one..

    OP, sorry to say this but we were discussing this topic the other day because it was the first Creed I have seen with the word Testeur on the back, and I actually thought the bottle just like yours was authentic. I'm afraid the experts explained to me how it wasn't and I have to say I believe them. I would pass on this. Especially if money is a concern. I would just pop for a 100% authentic one.

    If that's fake it's a really convincing one. The overall bottle, paint, etc looks like the real thing. I would have been fooled.

    I would avoid Aventus in any form: authentic, tester, fake, knockoff, decant.

    This is the first thing everyone should have noticed. I've never seen a genuine Creed tester that came with a cap.

    The Neroli Portofino is fake too.

    The words "Neroli Portofino" are in Gill Sans on the fake bottle. The real ones have those same words in Gotham Medium.

    EDIT: Sauvage and Platinum Egoiste are fake too - again due to typography differences, though not as obvious as Neroli Portofino.
    It's really quite pleasant, except for the smell (...)

    The cap of Platinum doesn't look good.

    Shouldn't the batch code be inscribed in the glass itself?

    I can't stand that those fakes are so realistic. I'm really reinforced towards buying from genuine sources now.

    The Aventus looks fake. Sauvage, Platinum Egoiste, Neroli Portofino and Acqua di Gio are fakes - the inscriptions give them away. The Montale is fake as ILikePeeps says.

    I remember that birds of a feather flock together.

    Not necessarily, Creed has done both inscribed/engraved as well as ink/paint.

    At this point, I'm thinking the whole photo was taken from a knock-off Nikon camera.

    Possibly a Mikon, they use untested refurb parts in a Nikon body except they used a Mikon logo so crappy it couldn’t hide the fakes!

    You guys should be FBI agents.

    Yeah man, gotta be careful with the fakes, you came to the right place and got a little extra help on the side. Also, you say you bought the tester of Aventus already. You tell Me, does is smell legit like Aventus? Go and smell a real Aventus and compare the two.
