    Default Is this the first online occurrence of fake Ombre Leather bottles?

    The lettering is real bad and I didn't see a batch code, but my question is if anyone has seen this before in a TF OL bottle? Thanks.

    There's no image, photo, or link to access, or is it determining just from your words?

    Isn't that perhaps a batch code above the bar code: A49 13141?

    Looks real to me. The batch code is A48 as illustrated on the sticker below and it matches the print on the box. The blur on the label is mainly on the 2nd pic so that might be due to the camera and the box has the correct texture.

    That said I wouldn't buy because a) its eBay b) its a low feedback account whose sold quite a few OLs recently c) the leaking liquid in the 2nd pic isn't that appealing d) the "opened with box, where they came from or why is unknown" description.

    Pass.

    Could be, I didn't strain my eyes after I saw that fuzzy/incorrect lettering. LOL.

    Pass.
    I've seen that fuzzy lettering on other fakes, and if you were to take a photo of a real one with the same distance, angle, etc., it would be clear and straight. The lettering on the box is different and superior to what's on the bottle! Also, the space inside the "A" is clearly too small and wrong. And then there is the price - you can even get it for less since it has a "best offer" feature! LOL. Compare to the lettering on this bottle;

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/173840501786?ul_noapp=true

    In the description the seller says, "...where they came from or why is unknown." Cute! And there is clearly some sort of resin on the top of the bottle that suggests leakage.
