    Default Mont Blanc Legend Batch Code

    Hi guys.First of all ,I would really like to thank all of you guys for such a nice forum
    I bought a bottle of Mont Blanc Legend 200ML 5 days ago online and it smell amazing.Buuuuttt...I went to the web site I always go to to check the batch code and make sure it was 100% original ( ) and the website tells me that this bottle is supposed to have a 9 character batch code ending with 1 letter/digit and 3 digits (eg 04B25B104, 05D03C284) and the bottle I just bought has 10 digits instead of 9 .Both batch codes, the one from the bottle and the one from the box are exactly the same and every time I type the batch code on the website all I get is an error because of the last digit whish is a letter B
    if I remove the last letter B from the batch code I immidiately get a nice result teelling me that the bottled is from january 2019 but this happens only when I remove the letter B from the batch code on the website.I will upload some pics so you guys can have a better idea about my doubt Thank you so much all of you guys and I hope You guys can help me out to find out if this bottle is original or not.Once again...Thank you guysBox with BATCH CODE.jpgBottle with BATCH CODE.jpgCheckfresh.jpg

    Welcome to you rol_35! Enjoy your time here at Basenotes! Those sites often aren't accurate dating bottles and often they come up with a blank. If you bought it from a reputable vendor, I'd bet you're fine. Enjoy your new acquisition!
    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.

    Interesting... I got one of these 200ml Legend with a extra A back in September from maxaroma ( 08j24j140a ), didn't think anything of it,

    Thought maybe it could be a 200ml thing but I'm looking at my Legend spirit 200ml, and nothing extra there, so it's not that...

    Now I'm curious!

    *Like everyone says above batch codes sites are iffy, if you type check cosmetics vs checkfresh different dates, so take it with a grain of salt...

    - - - Updated - - -

    I'll start a conspiracy theory, that maybe a ingredient got banned, so they are experimenting with different replacements, batch a and batch b.

    *Only bec I do remember feeling that longevity was kind of crap with this new bottle when I first got it, though my old bottle was finished so could not compare... so i could be totally off...and I did tend to overspray this back then too vs now I'm more conservative...

    Maybe go to a proper retailer (sephora ulta bloomingdales... )and see if theirs have 10 digits/extra a or b now... if it bothers you enough
