    Default creed with no batch code

    Hi. Can a creed bottle with no batch code on it nor in the box be authentic? Perhaps a very old batch? I have seen this on a GIT 120 ml bottle. Thank you.

    Of course anything is possible, but as mentioned, images would be helpful.

    Why not just get GIT 120ml elsewhere where there is clear evidence of the codes? That way you'll have peace of mind.

    These are the pictures of the suspicious bottle. No batch code in the bottle nor in the box. It is *supposed* to be a very old version. What do you think?

    I don't see anything that jumps out at me from your photos.

    It is strange. Apart from the absence of batch code, what first caught my attention was the lack of details in the box but that could be because it is really old

    Default creed with no batch code

    Another suspicious detal: l’empereur Nicolas II de Russie missing in the list of Royalties (he usually appears at the end of the list, at least on modern boxes)

    Based on the packaging, that is definitely an older bottle. Creed didn't begin putting batch codes on bottles until 2005.
