    That's interesting - I had no idea Creed made it to the airports here in the UK. Mind if I ask which store in Heathrow and which terminal?

    I think this is odd. Creed are not sold in Heathrow last time I checked and yes that means World Duty Free. The fact that it has a returns label from Macy’s indicates it’s not from Heathrow.

    But then you are showing a different bottle instead of the Creed you mentioned so I am confused now.

    Whatever is in the pictures is very fake.

    Yeah, why would it be from Macy's AND the Duty Free?? Its either one or the other. Pretty sure Aventus is not cellophane wrapped either. Oh and the printing on the bottom of the bottle is waaaay off.

    Actually newer batches of aventus are wrapped in cellophane.
    Also , I agree that the backstory is quite questionable

    Printing does look wrong, and I thought all 2020 batches now have "N" at the end of the batch code - may be worth posting in Creed sub-forum for more opinions, but I would 99% say fake.

    Questionable, if it's from a Macy's store, then it would be real.

    FYI - this seems to be a trend in fakes lately (or for a while now); having bunk Macy's return stickers on them.

    Do NOT take that as a sign of the item being legitimate. I don't know if they're just making their own labels or actually getting them from Macy's, but it's been seemingly popping up. I guess to try to further fake out the buyers into feeling it's legitimate.

    Be weary.
