eric anthony: My serial number on the box is different than the number on the back of the
bottle. Everything else is perfect except the juice is weak. Is it a fake?
l'ombelico del mondo: Now... For a regular buyer there's no way to make the difference between an
original and a good fake. You want an original? Go to Sephora, Marionnaud,
Douglas, a trusted perfume shop. Even so, for an instance, in countries
such as Romania (where I'm from), Bulgaria etc, some Sephora employees make
extra money by replacing originals with fakes. Some of these fakes are
bad-fakes so the employees are sometimes caught. A friend of mine bought a
fake Chanel 4 months ago from Sephora in Bucharest.
notreveh: @Garedenofeden Hey Garedenofeden, thanks for being so kind in your comment!
I'm happy that the video was able to help you :) about spanish I do not
talk it but we have a lot of common words between your language and mine
(portuguese) so I understand a lot of things in spanish :P
eletronikox: amigo, o Egoiste tem um cheiro forte de alcool logo quando coloca? a
fixaçao eh longa ou o cheiro fica bem suave?
soned1969: Just wanted to say, my Platinum bottle have the same problem, the black
sleeve removed from the holder, and I bought it directly from Chanle. I
fixed it by just putting a little bit of glue, and voila!. Abrigado!
notreveh: There must be a serial number in every bottle and it must always match the
serial number in the box.
Vic Toria: Good video! This is very helpful. Thanks for sharing. I know what it's like
to get a fake bottle =/
oss279: its fall!
pyrlcutie: Your top is not broken... you will have to twist off the top, so the black
top around the sprayer stays on.
notreveh: Then there's a huge chance of it being fake.
notreveh: Olá. O meu platinum não tinha um forte cheiro de álcool ao se aplicar. Era
um perfume suave que durava o dia inteiro praticamente, na minha pele.
notreveh: It is a fake for sure
notreveh: @oss279 Hahahahah, thanks!
PhantomX786: What if there's no serial number on back?
notreveh: @sergematurin Hi Serge. My bottles of Allure Sport and Allure Edition
Blanche which was purchased in a Duty Free have this upward slanted effect,
but it is not very prominent, it is a very soft upward shape. I don't think
that this perfectly flat aspect is 100% true when talking about Allure
Bottles, and I also do not think that I can find fake bottles in a Duty
Free. You probably have an original bottle.
MoziVi: must be serial number in bottle ? and it is consistent to serial number
from box? Please help, and give an answers
notreveh: Isso, são originais, amigo
ronnie jong: mine is real
Tutidemore: I love your accent!
l'ombelico del mondo: When I started selling perfumes I bought from BigDiscount and FragranceX,
both US online shops often having huge discounts. From 1st shipment I've
noticed they also sell fakes. A few perfumes were obvious bad fakes. One
Angel for Man, Thierry Mugler, was green and had things floating around
inside, under the black cover. And that's just one example. So, for the
online clients there's no realy way of making the difference between an
original and a good fake. BUT there is an useful hint, though...
Vilma Correia: I love how you explain all your perfume crazy too perfume kisses!
mike cano: Thn buddy
Odi Lon: I'm mortified. The back of the box I bought (which I think is vintage) only
has "Contains: SD Alcohol 39-C , Fragrance, Water Then the trademarks Then
the New York, N.Y. 10019 and Serial no. 772013 (which is also indicated at
the base of the box --and that's about it, no other accompanying text)
...dunno if this was made in U.S. but I can't find it anywhere that says
Edward Sanchez: @notreveh Jajaja! I never hear Portuguese here! Why do you guys never come
up here in Colombia?! I have many friends that go to Brazil and they love
it! Oh yeah, and from 5:20, the word is "fell", not "fall" or "felt". Eres
muy guapo! = )
pmo911: I'm pretty sure the newer bottles don't have "CHANEL" engraved on the
odd0odium: Don't worry, I understood everything you've said with no effort. Thank you
so much for taking the time to educate us.
musxpdc: what about batch code 1002
MoziVi: thanks, my bottle Egoiste Chanel is a fake :(, Thanks for answers, your
movie is really help me :] thanks ;]
Ryu Hayabusa: Nice review thanks for the info it helped me identify the fake Chanel Allure
Fujin Jr: For your information: Batch code 0406 -> Date of manufacture: April 2008
Batch code 2503 -> Date of manufacture: January 2010
l'ombelico del mondo: The hint is the price. Online, you have 70% chance of buying a fake when
price is less than half of Sephora's for the same item, 40% if the price is
a bit over half of Sephora's, 20% if the price is up to 4/5 of Sephora's.
Don't think that if Sephora is sometimes having sales an online shop can do
the same. Sephora's suppliers are directly the brands, it's a marketing
decision THEY make to have sales. Online unautorised shops can't afford to
do the same, unless they sell fakes amongst originals.
l'ombelico del mondo: Completely useless. :) I've been selling perfumes for years. Your advices
make the difference only between an original and a bad-fake. But there are
good fakes too, out there. Some people make millions by selling fakes, so
they pay close attention to details: perfume box, bottle, printing, color,
smell etc. They take faking very serious, that's why they make millions.
Just like the guys that fake money. If money can be faked, then it's sure
as hell a perfume can be very well faked. Now...
Edward Sanchez: Your English is very understandable notreveh. I saw your reflection from
one of the colognes and you look very attractive, plus your accent makes it
better! =) I am from Colombia myself. Se habla espanol? If not, I speak
English good. =)
deebob48: what one is better? allure or platinum?
notreveh: @deebob48 Both are designed for an specific occasion. But I would say
Allure Sport fits better in my style.
cguymartin: good job man
John Doe: Fake.
notreveh: Very useful tips, Parfumeria33bro. I'm glad you said that here to all of
us! :) There are trusted online places to buy fragrances like fragrancenet
which I never had problem. I've seen a lot of bad fake fragrances out
there, so for this porpuse, the video is useful, imo.
l'ombelico del mondo: He complained at Chanel.com, actions were taken, and his perfume was
replaced with an original one for free. So... Perfume counterfeits market
is 100% based on the Internet or person-to-person sellings, aka "a friend
of mine is selling perfumes". On the web, eBay, Amazon, and online perfume
shops are a huge market where you find a mixture of original perfumes and
fakes. The suppliers for this 2nd level market are fake producers and the
real brands as well, like Chanel, Dior, Bvlgari etc.
David Hedison: Perdão pelo meu "portuglês", mas no video vc quis fizer que o Allure e o
Egoiste são verdadeiros, né?!
Сергей Матурин: @notreveh Thank you very much for your answer.
l'ombelico del mondo: Search the web, and you'll see trusted newspaper articles explaining since
late 80's how big-brands sell amazingly huge stocks of perfumes to Middle
East (Dubai), Central America, and so on. Apparently, when Chanel and other
brands take to court some unauthorised resellers, they do it only for the
image. Actually, the unauthorised resellers indirectly make a lot of money
for Chanel and the others. The problem is that these stocks of originals
get mixed with fakes before reaching online buyers.
mike cano: Thanks*
notreveh: Hahahah, thanks!
Сергей Матурин: Hello! I read on some blog that authentic bottles are perfectly flat from
each top corner to the bottle neck. The phony bottle has an upward slanted
effect from the corner to the neck. I have this on my bottle of tester. Do
you have it on your bottle of Allure Homme Sport or not? Thank you.
