    There's pretty much two versions: one with all cursive font and one with only Zino in cursive. The all cursive like this bottle is vintage.

    Agree consensus is all cursive text = better version /vintage.
    Interesting that, code checkers not always accurate.
    I saw a listing for a vintage "x" that says it was purchased in 2008, yet the batch code gives 2013 date. One of those things.
    The zino looks good though, ebay =buyer protection so good on that front too

    That is the more favorable one.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Yes, my understanding is that is a very early version - remember that for many companies the batch codes are repeated every 10 years.

    why would it say 2014?

    What date does it actually refer to?

    it doesn't inspire confidence, that an actual batch code can't be accurately checked to an actual date.

    I believe that Davidoff nbrs are repeated every 10 years.

    Many cosmetics companies use rotating batch codes this way. When they designed their systems, they were not anticipating an aftermarket for vintage fragrances.
