    Default Drakkar Cosmair.... In a white box???

    I love the original DN, but I'm not super convinced that it came in a white box. It was always a black box when I would buy it.

    To think that it would not only be new AND Cosmair, but also in a white box.

    It's not marked tester either.

    I have never personally seen it in anything other than a black box. Keep us posted if you purchase it or obtain pics. That's a new one to me!

    It reminds me of an event in Chicago. There were three fragrance vendors, and one was authentic for sure.

    I saw another with white boxes for EVERY fragrance. I remember assuming they were knockoffs.

    TESTER? I know testers always come in white boxes.

    That's what I'm thinking. Even if it's not printed on there, I don't think all testers do that.

    Sometimes there's a little sticker that has Tester one it..maybe it was pulled off? My general rule of thumb...if it doesn't smell way off, it's legit.

    They're claiming it's Cosmair.

    I'm hesitant.

    Then again, whatever's in that bottle probably smells closer to the original Drakkar than the current version.

    Likewise

    I think the current stuff is pretty similar to vintage.
    Have you sent emails?

    I looked again, and it does say"tester."

    Not sure the odds of it being Cosmair though.

    Just got a response from the seller, after asking them to clarify that it is indeed Cosmair:

    "Hi to be honest don’t know why change title"

    I'm STILL not sure ��

    What what the seller trying to say???
