    Default Fake St.Sail st.Barts??!

    Hello there ,i recently bought 3 tester bottles from Ebay and seems to me that something is wrong.

    First of all ,scentwise the juice seems a bit off.Different.

    Bottles has some "lines" like glass joints, not so smooth finish on the glass.
    Also two of the botlles have the sprayer in different directions.

    Can anyone help here?Or post you legit bottle to compare them..

    I would be highly surprised to learn that this had been counterfeited.

    Agree. Never heard of this being faked before.

    There was a significant reformulation, at least as far as I could tell, and the bottle designs were changed too. That would by my guess as to what you have detected.

    Yes, the reformulation is like a "replica," IMO, so welcome to the world of irritating reformulations! LOL.

    How would I know? You'd have to ask the company, right? I can only tell you what my "nose" has told me, as I've owned different bottles of this scent and the differences are signficant, IMO. My "vintage" bottle says @2008 Tommy Bahama Group, Inc. Remember, we say "vintage bottle" but the companies rarely mention reformulations (Dior did this with Dior Homme, etc., though). Sometimes they will add "classic" to the bottles, such as Lagerfeld's original "masculine" scent, but that actually means the latest formulation, not vintage!

    The Five Star bottles are different - the sprayer assembly has a narrower base and the older caps (with the rope) do not fit.

    I picked up a bottle of the Five Star version and am road testing it this week. I have two older versions, TB with plastic and with paper labels. I haven't tried either yet to any meaningful degree.

    So far, I like the Five Star - it's a sufficient workplace substitute for VIW. The lime is potent. 3-4 sprays to the clavicle and neck and I get wafts here and there all day.
