    Default Need help with my Kouros bottle!

    Hi, if someone could help me a little with this, i would be very happy as i'm been wondering this since i got this full 50 ml bottle of Kouros few days ago from private sales.

    Do anyone know this formula/version of Kouros i got? Decided to pick it as i assumed when i saw a picture of packing that i would getting a vintage bottle but now can't really say is this vintage, some newer/current -version or fake?

    The packing looks same as in left picture i found from Raiders of the Lost Scent-blog, but bottom of the bottle and packing (bottle i got) looks same as in right picture (presenting "Sanofi -era"). Batch code which can be found on the bottle (behind the bottle) and packing is 9260 (on the bottle 92602 but number 2 has maybe faded out a bit on packing), and when i tried to check on checkcosmetic.net with it, i get date "17 of September, 2019". So really puzzled with my bottle and starting to feel that this might be a fake.

    It is NOT a fake. You have a Sanofi-Kouros from 1999. The bottle is a leftover old stock from Parfum Corp. era.
    Batchnumbers are re-used every 10 yrs, therefore: 2019 -> 2009 -> 1999.
