    Looks ok to me.

    Just curious, why are you having doubts?

    I can't establish the year. It smells slightly different from the new batches. the 3911 batch should be oct-18..are you familiar with fake 50 ml bottles?

    That looks like a older bottle so difference in smell is expected, as long as it was stored properly it should be fine.

    This is not Oct 2018 bottle. Seems much older. AFAIk bottles from past few years have etched chanel logo etc. At least my 2015 Egoiste and PM had it.
    Seems vintagish to me

    Was the box closed?
    On the box EDT is written on top of CHANNEL and on the bottle underneath it. It doesn't seem right.

    Yes, the box was sealed. I can't find any Antaeus 50 ml bottle fake.

    You're right, I missed that.

    I agree. This silver sprayer version was on the market before they had black sprayers circa 2015, which is when my bottle of Antaeus is from.

    Yes I noticed that too. If it was a sealed bottle this might be because it's a 'transition' bottle, so still likely to be quite old if my assumption is correct.

    Agreed. Only he can comment here with a degree of certainty. Or should I say more certainty than I can

    It looks like a real, vintage bottle of Antaeus to me, but not early 80s. "Eau de Toilette" has been moved to the bottom on the bottle, but not the box. The box has the translations, and a bar code, and recycling symbol.

    The top of the cap should be silver, not black.

    It looks like a perfect specimen to me - and you can fly with that size in a carry on (it's 3 ounces or less)! Who else here can travel with a vintage Antaeus spray in a carry on? It's probably something I'll never experience. Checked luggage, or a travel spray for me. Not quite as satisfying.
