    Default Another fake or real post.

    Hi everyone, hoping for some advice on this bottle. I have a friend that gets tester bottles and the occasional proper retail bottles or various fragrances. I've got this bottle for a friend, I'm going to feel really embarrassed if it's fake. Been buying off him for 5 years and never had any problem before. Any help much appreciated
    Batch code (I think) is LT4217V01

    I believe your post is real. I cannot help you with your bottle, however. I'm sure others can.

    I think your in the clear, 17V01 did come in a 1.7oz size how does it smell the box batch code looks different thought not that that matters. How does it smell and perform that batch is supposed to be a balanced batch between notes.

    Going to be honest, I've not had a smell of it for a while but it seems good. Is the LOT number supposed to match the bottom of the bottle?

    Box could have been switched from discounter or the guy you bought from or source he bought from usually box and bottle match but things can happen.

    I bet that happens more than one thinks.
    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.

    Bottle looks authentic to me but it is a red flag that the batch code on the bottle doesn't match the one on the box.
