    Default hi guys . Is this Aventus real or fake ?

    I have found a guy that sells Aventus . According to him it is genuine but it doesn't have a box . He told me that he bought it from francex or fragrancenet and it is a tester . I don't remember .
    It is old bottle 120 ml .
    The pictures have real bad quality .
    The batch Code is CM1427H81
    on the bottom of the bottle it is written " FRANCES PRODUCTION 77770 and the batch code "
    What is your openion real or fake ?

    Hard to know from the photos, but if I had to guess, I'd say real.

    Batch code seems weird to me maybe one of the more experienced Aventians can speak to that

    red flag. if it is indeed a tester it will have an etching somewhere on the bottle to confirm this. if the bottle is full or near full why isn't there any box as nobody has used it? likely a refill...

    Pros:
    -bottle is real
    -the stamping "FRAGRANCES PRODUCTION (...)" on the bottom of the bottle is real

    Neutral:
    Highly unlikely that it's a tester. Not because it doesn't say so on the bottle but because of the cap. But ofc that could have been added afterwards.

    Cons:
    -(Shitties pics ever)
    -that batchcode is just wrong and doesn't exist

    Unless you don't know the exact batchcode and get properly taken pictures you shouldn't buy this dreck. Could be a refill.

    And just because it's a 120ml bottle doesn't mean that the juice must be vintage. It might be a late 2014 but could also turn out to be a late 2017 bottle (which is my guess in this case).

    I spoke again with the guy and he told me it is not a tester and he send me 2 new pics
    The pics are even more shittier than before if that is possible .
    I can't even read the batch CODE to be honest .
    What is the first letter I have no idea .
    I can't even upload them . It is PNG screenshot so I am not allowed to upload it .
    According to him the batch code is this " 17N01"

    from the pictues I can read something like 14217N01 I thin there is a letter or 2 numbers before what I have written .
    Total mess .
    This guys sells it for 200 euro ?
    is it worth the risk I ask myself .
    He can't even show good pictures .

    I wouldn't take the risk with this much uncertainty.

    120ml bottles of 17N01 indeed come with that type of stamping on the bottom sometimes. 200€ is a good price too, If you can get it via PayPal (with money back guarantee) go for it. Otherwise, dont risk it.

    If it was legit, he would not be selling it for 200 euros, trust me.

    TBHWY, I think Aventus is well and truly dead. Others may disagree, but I believe that the Parfums Vintage Emporer range (EDP, Extrait, and Napoleon) are much better alternatives to Aventus.
