    Default Platinum Egoiste

    Hello, I bought a 50 ml bottle of Chanel Platinum Egoiste.
    Everything looks perfect (batch code, fonts, etc).
    The only thing that keeps me worrying is that the Chanel world on the front has not “relieve”, is flat.
    Do I have an original or a fake?
    Thank you very much.
    Best,
    BruceB

    Default Platinum Egoiste: original or fake? Help needed.

    Hello, I bought a 50 ml bottle of Chanel Platinum Egoiste.
    Everything looks perfect (batch code, fonts, etc). The smell is very good.

    The only four things that keeps me worrying (some images below):

    - Chanel world on the box has not feel to the touch, is flat.
    - The Chanel word on the bottle is painted ..mmhh..strange.
    - The bottom of the bottle...
    - I think i saw little particles floating.

    Do I have an original or a fake?
    Thank you very much.
    Best,
    BruceB

    Everything looks legit and real I think your ok the particles could be from age as this is an older bottle or happened during manufacturing.

    Looks fine to me also from the photos.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Looks okay to me. I'd be annoyed more so of the bottom of the bottle but that's just cosmetic issues of the glass formation.

    Not sure, but you are really taking a chance when you purchase a Chanel from any non-authorized retailer. Chanel has a tight grip on distribution, so if you see one somewhere at a reduced price, there is a very good chance that it’s not legit.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Xerjoff - Nio
    2. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    10. Creed - Pure White Cologne

    Thank you for the advice. But based on what you see what would you say? Real or fake?
    Smells great and longevity is very good; nothing hurts the skin, etc.
