    Question Real or fake? Guerlain Shalimar Colognes

    Do you think these are real or fake? Listed on ebay, https://www.ebay.com/itm/133340022837, Guerlain Shalimar Cologne (Flacon Montre) Watch bottles. I can't decide if the packaging matches the oddly uninformative tax stickers. Any ideas?

    They sure look like the real thing to me. I doubt it would be possible for a counterfeiter to reproduce those bottles so convincingly. The boxes look legit as well.
    That said, I hear you about the stickers. I don't recall seeing any quite like that.

    I'd be shocked if those aren't real. They look great, and I don't think these vintage Guerlain EDCs are valuable or "hot" enough on the market to be faker targets. Which makes them great buys.

    The box design is 60's-to-mid-70s. I haven't seen Guerlain stickers with so few words on them, but that doesn't mean much because those paper labels dried up and fell off easily and there aren't that many around for comparison. The bid on those bottles is quite reasonable, I say go for it - very low risk.

    The bottles definitely look authentic - I'd be more concerned with the juice (if you plan on wearing it).

    As others have said, I think they're fine. I've seen that kind of label on perfumes blended in the US.

    The evaporation is a worry, though.
