    Default Is this AHSEE real or fake?

    I just purchased this chanel fragrance but I am afraid it is fake. Paint Job is deteriorated and for some reason the cap is silver and not black. Other than that the rest of the bottle seems legit, the juice inside tho I am not an AHSEE expert but it smells similar and last extremely long time tho. Was there a time when chanel made silver caps instead black ones?

    Did you buy this used and was it from a reputable vendor?

    Do you have recourse to return it if you feel you need to?

    The bottle just looks worn, otherwise from your photos it seems fine. If it smells like you remember it, enjoy it!

    Unfortunatelly I went to the store and compared it to the original AHSEE and it has some ADN but it's way stronger and less fresher than the store 's AHSEE. To my nouse it is not AHSEE but was refilled with some type of clone, unless there was a batch from 2015 that smell stronger and less fresher (with little dept) than the actual ones.

    I contacted the guy who sold it to me and he says he didn't know it was fake and he cannot return me the money but has offered me an AHS he has instead. The bad is that I now gonna have to double check whether that one is fake or not as well.

    Sorry for the trouble you have been going through. Just be careful going forward. Perhaps there is a lesson somewhere in all of this that has been learned for the future. Whatever you decide - Good luck!

    It doesn't look fake to me. The shot of the inside of the cap is interesting - it looks the same as mine. It looks like the cap has been handled so much that they wore it down from a matte finish to a shine. That could also explain the loss of paint - maybe someone obsessively twisted the cap in place. I'm going with it.

    It's not the original sprayer cap (that shiny thingy).

    Can't tell if the juice is original or not.
    It totally makes sense to me that it appears stronger and less fresh in comparison with a new batch from the store.

    That bottle isn't 100% sealed.
    With every spray air comes into the bottle and let the fragrance age.
    Volatile top notes which you perceive as "fresh" are fading away, then you'll get more of the heart and base notes.
    Also some alcohol evaporates during the time so that the concentration of the perfume oils become higher.

    And honestly, even Chanel's designer fragrances can't be cloned in a way that you must think about wether it's the real one or not.
    I don't know a single clone house who managed to copy a Chanel yet in such a good way that you would have a hard time in a blind test.
    That's just because Chanel uses many aroma chemicals exclusively which other "houses" can't buy.

    So if it smells like AHSEE I bet it's just an older bottle.

    Looks genuine to me despite some of the paint coming off the bottle.
