    Default Gucci Envy Weird Bottle Question

    Hello,

    I saw a picture of a weird Gucci Envy bottle.

    Is it legit? If so where did it come from? I almost looks like an internal tester that never should have seen the public. I've included a screenshot of it.

    Thoughts?

    Don't think it's legit. Should say : Scannon S.A. and not Scannion S.A.

    Oh yeah so what kind of bottle is it? I can't see that bottle being visible by the customers at a department store.

    It's probably a bottle he had or obtained from a laboratory would be my guess.

    You mean if the bottle was legit it probably came from a lab and someone is duping the bottle and label and probably the frag.

    All of those are possibilities. Impossible to know for sure.

    That's a bummer. No wonder why folks are so sceptical these days.

    If it's a "tester" then it would be used in stores, so of course the public would see it. I saw something similar not that long ago with a Mark Birley bottle. It doesn't take much to do this kind of a fake, I'd guess. I bought a KL Lagerfeld test bottle that was only used by company personnel, and it doesn't say tester on it. Instead, it says "test A" and has a bunch of numbers on it. There's isn't "not for sale" on it, and why would it say "refill?" I have a large Ungaro bottle that I think says refill (and I have seen such large bottles now and then) but they are not testers. The fact that the company name is spelled incorrectly and nobody has seen one in the past (along with how easy it would be to make something like this, presumably) suggests it should be avoided. I'll write up a blog post about it, though, and perhaps someone has seen one and can tell us about it. I'll also show a picture of my KL test A bottle.

    I suggest subscribing at least until after that particular post is published. There's another weird bottle like this I'll discuss (pictures will be included). Another thing is that if it's a refill bottle, why is it a spray? I've never seen a spray refill bottle and they were all at least 200 ml.

    Right, a spray, refill, demonstration tester?

    I'd be happy to subscribe and learn more about frags.

    And if you go to ebay you can see Envy testers. They look like the regular bottles except they don't come with a cap and the boxes are plain white. The idea that they'd make another type of tester when all they have to do is use retail bottles and slap a tester sticker on it doesn't make sense, and that refill/tester is a really ugly bottle too! LOL.

    I've reached out to an eBay seller who has these listed for $300 a piece. I asked for detailed pics of the bottle label and the box. I would love to get this frag but the current prices for it are ridiculous IMO. If these are legit its a way better deal

    You would consider buying that bottle for $300? I have a couple real bottles so you can PM me with what you're looking to spend and we'll see if we can work something out, if you live in the USA.

    My post about this has been up for several days now on my blog. Someone pointed out that Paris has a five digit postal code beginning with 75, so 7001 is another mistake. There are now these same bottles on ebay for sale,around $200 each, with Scannon spelled correctly,but the postal code is still 7001.
