    Question Dior Sauvage EDT 2018-01 fake or not?

    1. Tell us where you bought it.
    Ebay, 3yo account dedicated to fragrance, 2343 reviews, 99.2% positive
    2. Tell us what you paid.
    US$60
    3. Tell us about the seller (if on ebay, tell us the feedback, the other items being sold, where the item is located, if the account appears as though it might have been "hijacked," etc.).
    already did, most are sold from USA but account is located in Australia
    4. Closely look at the bottle and see if there are imperfections, such as if the lettering comes off easily if you rub your fingernails on it. Does the cap fit properly? Is the packaging different from what you believe to be correct? Is the tubing too long or does it has a S or other weird shape? Is there anything about it that seems flimsy? Are any words misspelled?
    Packaging was damaged, multiple impacts but bottle ok just the cap misalignment
    5. Tell us what you think is suspect, and always mention the smell and performance of it !
    The magnetic cap does not perfectly aligned, I have seen atomisers that look like they have matte CD while mine is shiny, after an hour it smells like sauvage but not enough time to properly evaluate
    6. Did you turn it upside down for a few hours, and if so, did it leak?
    No, will leave overnight
    7. Does the color of the liquid appear to be correct?
    Yes
    8. Is the liquid cloudy or does it have anything floating in it (hold it up to the light)?
    Yes quite a lot in fact
    9. Does the weight appear to be correct (if you have an idea about what it should weigh)? Provide the weight if you have a scale.
    355g in packaging 312g without
    10. Post good pictures!

    Fragrance certainly reminds me of sauvage but have not had the time to test longevity
    What is the verdict?

    sorry, cant work out how to edit but I worked out the floaties are from turning it upside down not from contamination

    The biggest culprit is the straw, it should be transparent where you could almost not see it, almost invisible and the bee does look kinda strange. And why does it have a split CD.
    Here's a pic of my Sauvage showing the bee, CD and the straw.
    Also check out the side by side comparison of an original and a fake from youtube, particularly a video of the channel Fragrance Tattoo.

    Hopefully you have recourse to return it should you feel you ultimately need to.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Yes, I can see the differences. It appears yours is fake. The straw is truly bothersome as is the weird looking "bat". If you decide to return it make sure to return it quickly, within the refund timeframe.
