    Default How to legit check a vintage aventus bottle?

    I am looking to purchase a 11z01 bottle second hand off someone, from the pics I got it looks legit. Main thing I noticed is the sprayer is black and has the creed writing on it, and the ring around the sprayer is black too. The 11z01 is laser etched under the label where there is a slight divit thingy.

    I know for modern aventus the best way to check is to remove the sprayer and make sure its white underneath and also to check the box, but with this 11z01 is there any special way to check to make sure its legit? he doesnt have the box anymore, just bottle and cap


    thanks!

    Send me a pm or post some pictures here. The sprayer mechanism should be the first gen. of Creed atomizers, there should be a bb and a spring attached/placed in the tubing. The tubing is thicker than in modern bottles. Also, because it's a pre 12' bottle, it should have the Creed lettering/logo painted in silver instead of black. Some 12' came with black lettering (late 12' I think).

    So far, it looks authentic. The adhesive side of the label is black, so that's also a good sign for a genuine pre 2013 bottle. Creed lettering, cap and sprayer mechanism look fine.

    Also the ring around the sprayer is fine, you can notice that fakes usually have a bad paint quality there and it doesn't look as clean and even as in your pictures.

    If you can ask for a better picture of the bottle from the front pov, you can also see if it has a metal bb and spring in the tubing.
    But judging only by the pics you posted, you are good to go.

    If you want after you get hit me up with a sample and I'll help you authenticate it, I own 30 batches from 2010-2018 including 11Z01. and 11Y01. The bottle means very little if the juice is fake or from a newer batch. That said, the bottle looks authentic.

    Also be sure there's a fall-back option if the dude filled it with ethanol or some clone.

    sweet, sweet buyers remorse.

    OP if you are seriously considering this make sure the seller is willing to take a significant haircut on their original purchase price, at least 50% seems reasonable

    these are more pics? does it seem legit? and i assume to check if he tampered with the juice is just to smell it and also check if the bottle is loose where it connects to sprayer?

    - - - Updated - - -

    also how many mL does that look out of a 75ml bottle? level is right under the creed lettering

    thanks!!

    Yes, seems legit. I would say there is circa 60ml left in there.
