    Post Fake amouage?

    Hello, Yesterday I received my amouge jubilation that I bought on ebay with a seller with 200,000 stars, I already tried the perfume and it seems authentic and lasts approximately 7+ hours the doubt is that the logo of amouage looks glued and I saw a video on youtube that if the logo is glued is fake (Here the video : https://youtu.be/ULQeyhqipJI )I would like someone to please clarify why the logo is glued? And if it is original THANK YOU

    Legit.
    If a perfume smells like its supposed to, its legit.
    If they dont glue it, how do you expect the logo to stick on glass?

    Also there is another subforum here for posting these sorts of inquiries.

    It's a 2018 made in Oman bottle.
    The glue on the back of the logo looks as always - nothing wrong with it.

    That Crickmore interview which has gone viral in the past is ridiculous as he basically says, that every Amouage which isn't bought from an authorized seller must be a fake.
    Amouage knows very well that there are a lot of greymarket sellers out there who offer authentic Amouages bottles and if they really were interested into putting the greymarket down they would have a serious talk to their well-known retailers who deliver to greymarket sellers. But they simply don't care for it as they sell even more bottles that way.

    Enjoy your bottle!

    The mold tooling marks on the bottle are the same as all other Amouage. The bottle is from them.

    Looks fine to me also.

    Exactly what I was thinking. Gold leaf embossed laser etching?

    I just looked at the batch code.

    A.....C... = 2018

    Is there anywhere online where I can get a list of the letters and their corresponding years?

    Unfortunately not.
    And Amouage changed their system of codes a lot over the years. It seems they don't want their customers to be able to identify year of production.
    They even won't reply if you ask the customer support, when your bottle was made.

    Then how do you know that A+C=2018?

    I just did my own research on this topic.
    As I've said, there is no list available for all the different systems of Amouage batch decoding.
    And Amouage don't want the customer to be able to get the year of production out of the batch code.
    Instead they spread huge amounts of BS regarding to "fake bottles" (watch the Crickmore interview...) and the UK and Oman bottles being "the same" juice when they are absolutely not.

    All that text and you didn't answer the question.

    I'm sorry Sir.
    You can trust me or not.
    That bottle is a 2018 one made in Oman.
    If you doubt it, try finding someone who works for Amouage and confirms it.
    Or do your own research, buy, trade and sell bottles over the years and make your own observations.

    I could tell the OP that you're wrong. I could say I've done my research and A+C=2016. Without any proof, it's meaningless.

    Ok, you're right and I'm wrong, I hope you're satisfied now.

    It isn't about being right or wrong. I'm just trying to get you to tell us what you know about Amouage batch codes. The information, if you actually have any, could be useful to some people.

    No, thanks...
