    Default 100ml: fake or genuine?

    I recently bought a 100ml Aventus from an Ebay user.
    The bottle looks genuine, shows no quality defects* or whatsoever.
    However, there are some red flags. What is your opinion?

    -under the atomizer it is black instead of transparent white
    -batch number seems to be of a 120ml batch instead of 100ml
    -nozzle is white instead of black
    -* at the bottom, the space for the liquid seems to be too far near the edge of the bottle.

    Or am I seeing ghosts and are these things just due quality fluctuation that is quote common with Creed? I have never heard of fake 100ml bottles.
    Scent seems good, abit different than my previous 120ml bottle (that I bought retail), but that could be a batch difference.

    Fake. The things that you already mentioned plus "Creed" logo on the sprayer's cap and 16C01 in a 100ml bottle (never existed) prove that it's a fake.

    Fake, besides the obvious, the batch number should be engraved on the bottle like so.

    Hope you have the ability to return it.

    100ml bottles have been out for a while now, so it's no surprise that they are being fabricated.
