    Question Is this Creed Aventus real or fake?

    Hi all,

    Very very sorry for another one of these real or fake posts. I have tried to look everywhere but I canít find anything definite atm.

    My friend just got this bottle of Aventus from a wholesaler (already sounds shady I know) and asked me to help him figure out if it is real. I have read up a bit about these things online and asked him for pictures of the batch code and the outer ring but am still unsure. Everything looks great to me apart from the colour of the outer ring (kinda metalish not as white as pictures I found online) and the numbers on it (also can't see this number in online pictures, but maybe because they are not all zoomed in like this?). There is also no box and the batch is an older one which I think is more commonly counterfeited.

    Thanks in advance for helping!

    I believe that batch should have a yellowish/greenish tint to it. So I would say fake but
    I’m not an expert.

    Does your friend have recourse to return it?

    Looks okay to me unless a refill. 16C01 should have an opening black licorice note. I have it and I like it a good deal for that reason.

    After seeing legit 16c01 pics I’m pretty sure that’s a refill.

    It's questionable, the sprayer looks real, but the batch code should be engraved somewhere on the bottle.

    Its a fake bcs:
    - there are no 100ml bottles of the batch 16C01, first 100ml bottles are 16L01, 16M01, 17N01, (...)
    - the cap is the round, modern style one that was introduced with 17X01
    - the printed batch on the bottom comes up on many fake "tester" bottles

    And yes, that metalish color of the ring is a sign that its fake too, but the fact that its a 100ml 16C01 is sufficient evidence i guess
