    Default Is this fake creed royal oud 120ml

    Hi I just purchased a bottle from eBay ..
    But now Iím wondering if it is a fake .
    The bottle is 100% same as this picture

    https://archiwum.allegro.pl/oferta/t...281622559.html

    It came in a plain brown box (no labels)
    And I have been told it is a tester bottle by the staff at John Lewis when I asked them yesterday..
    however the smell of the scent is very weak and does not last long at all ..
    also when I checked the spray nozzle with the cap off it is just clear plastic ..

    Also I notice the millesime has the little line above the e. But all the bottles in John Lewis did not have this ..

    So is this a fake that I have purchased ???

    From the photo, it seems OK. Since you got it from Ebay you're protected should you decide to return it or if you still have doubts.

    Hi thanks for your reply ..
    I’m worried to return the item to the seller saying it’s a fake when it may be legitimate..
    the staff at John Lewis said that creed stopped making 120ml tester bottles in 2015 ..
    So maybe this is just an old bottle now .. but it is a shame how the scent fade so quickly
    I have a cheap creed royal oud alternative and the smell is very strong and one spray lasts for hours.. ..

    The bottle looks real....how many hours do you get from the fragrance? Royal Oud isn't a "beast mode" fragrance. In addition, you may simply be experiencing olfactory fatigue, when in fact others can smell the fragrance. I actually find Royal Oud more suitable for the Spring and Summer seasons.
