    Default Creed Private Collection mistake shipment

    I recently ordered a flacon of Acier Aluminum from the Creed Boutique...and just received this. Is there any way to tell what I received without opening up the bottle? The bottom of the box lists this as Acier Aluminum—I should perhaps have added a question mark to the topic!33497FD6-6B97-417D-8ADA-29F54252AE92.jpg1FCF6B52-FC90-442E-A0AD-28E26F27A7D0.jpg

    It's not going to say Acier Aluminem on the label, so that's probably right. Gonna have to smell it to know otherwise.

    Thank you both. I was going to try to send it back if it wasn’t, as I didn’t want another buyer to be out of a frag.

    The label is usually on the bottom of the flacon for the Private Collection.

    It looks like the box and flacon that I received from my recent Acier Aluminium order. As has been mentioned, mine says the name of the fragrance on the bottom of the flacon.

    There should be a label on the bottom of the flacon.

    Just checked; there is.

    I'm just happy that I don't have to return this -- courier services are becoming unreliable in my area.
