    You can tell the difference between when the two owners parted separate ways years ago by the size of the font for MONTALE on the bottle, (large from International Fragrance Design as opposed to small from Montale Paris) and the address on the packaging of the box, but both were legitimate. Personally never had to deal with a fake Montale in all the 180 I have, so not really sure how to tell.

    Montale bottles would be difficult to fake imo plus not much market for going Thru the effort.

    I have 2 questions to ask. 1 Are the montale boxes with cellophane or not? 2 the name of the perfume at the bottom, on the box and on the bottle is always printed or can it also be an adhesive label?

    I can answer the first question - all of mine which were either bought from the boutique or authorized retailers had cellophane. As for the second question, can't recall for sure on the boxes as I throw them away right after opening them, but do recall that some of the names had adhesive labels. As for the bottles, although I'm not in front of my collection, I do recall that some but not all also had adhesive labels.

    1. Yes they come sealed
    2. I have and have had about 60 Montales and the printing/packaging has had slight differences in at least 5 of them over the years. All purchased from legit sellers either online or in person, I couldn’t tell you why
    3. There are fakes out there, in all honesty the ones I’ve encountered it’s been almost impossible to tell from the scent and packaging, I wouldn’t worry too much, just try before you buy if possible or buy from respectable sources
    My top 30

    1. Gucci Envy / D&G By Man
    2. Amber Sky /Cedrat Boise
    3. Costarela / TFK Arab Spring
    4. Dior Homme Intense / Baccarat Rouge 540
    5. Dior Homme Cologne / Chez Bond
    6. Incense Oud / Aventus
    7. Antidote / By the Fireplace
    8. Gucci Pour Homme / Armani Attitude
    9. Black Phantom / Layton
    10. D&G The One EDP / M7
    11. Santal Majuscule / Reckless
    12. Diadema / Prada L’Homme
    13. Habdan / Tuxedo
    14. Lira / Dior Homme Sport 2012

    I recently saw many Montale counterfeit, they all have issues with the MTL logo. Check here down the original.
    The spray stopper also has little differences.
    The top of the bottle can be opened unscrewing it in the original.
