Same until I spotted this, not complaining at all though!(_;)

Ive bought this in the past, never seen it without the writing on the bottom of the glass as picture shows and the top is a bit different. Heat for price but going to give it a miss.

I only have eau verte after asparagus and I usually just flush it.

Dodgy as f**k.

Look how it's been put into the database, 'Unknown 50ml ConcentreLd54'

It won't come up in searches this way.

Who knows what these guys are up to.

That said, if you see other Chanels cheap on these let me know. The missus need some new bottles. oO

Tried to order, but they still wanted to charge me £4.99 top collect from the store :-(

Is it authentic Chenel?

the guy who owns this company was discussed in parliament on Monday , he seems to lo regard for his minimum wage employees, that's why he has personal wealth in excess of 20 million.

I stumbled upon this yesterday after making up a few perfume threads on HUKD for Sports Direct. On one hand, I don't want to support Mike Ashley's business practices, on another, I am a perfume hound and absolutely ADORE Chanel scents (except No5).

And my sister keeps banging on about Giorgio Armani Si.....dammit! I just made another order!

If it helps, the mini JPG tins received today appear legit - they are gifts so I can't test - but here's a photo of what I received.

I am very confident this is genuine Chanel. It has the engraving on the back of the glass, the symmetry, and the quality cap, bottle, packaging you would expect from a designer scent.

Not about Chanel Cristalle Eau Verte, another Chanel (Chance Eau Tendre) chanelperfumebottles.blogspot.co.uk/201…tml

Real box: the printing is exact
Fake box: the printing is off center and there is a ghost image of a "double strike" on the word Chanel.
(Spelling mistakes or printing inconsistencies are other, obvious, indications of a fake, and it should be perfectly symmetrical)
(Coco Mademoiselle comparisons) dino.co.uk/blo…jpg
dino.co.uk/blo…jpg

Real cap: the cap will always fit tightly onto the sprayer head
Fake cap: huge gap between cap and sprayer head, which will make it wobbly.

Real bottle: the quality of the metal is very thick, smooth and highly polished.
Fake bottle: the metal is poor quality, is dull and thin and shows abrasions on the edges.

Real bottle: the high quality glass is smooth, evenly molded and polished
Fake bottle: poor quality with visible ridges resulting in uneven surface and waviness.

Real bottle: has a unique serial number engraved onto the glass, and matches the one on the box.
Fake bottle: doesn't display the engraved number on the glass.


Took a few pictures of the bottle I received, taken on my phone. It was cellophaned originally, of course.

i.imgur.com/9VB…g?1 (note the engraving - you can just about make out the '3001' serial number at the bottom. You can feel the engraving when you run a finger over it). Re, Engraving - "A fake has issues (such as) The "92200 NEUILLY SUR SEINE" underlined logo is missing. Fakes sometimes have labels on the bottom"
i.imgur.com/UmC…g?1 (was taken on its side, rotated the picture)
i.imgur.com/fF9…g?1 (back of box, apologies for the reflection, was my blingy case!) X) (The box has embossing that you can feel with a fingertip, eg at the "CC", "Cristalle Eau Verte" font)
i.imgur.com/iTw…g?1 (underside of box - the serial number stamped here matches the serial number on the engraving on the back of the bottle. at the bottom)

A further comment says "FYI, there is no copyright © OR registered ® symbol next to the name in CHANEL PARIS (left side) printed on real boxes either. What IS wrong on those fake box & sleeve backs is the "INC." in CHANEL ® INC. in tiny font, jammed up under the ® & the French address, 92200 NEUILLY SUR SEINE, misprinted as "92200 NEUILLY SURSEINE" (more clearly visible on the fake slip cover)". (My box clearly says "92200 NEUILLY SUR SEINE" - with the spacing, underlined).

From Fragrantica Forum: "Take note of how visible the tube in the bottle is. If you can see it super-clearly, and it looks somewhat 'thick', that is a sign it is a fake. It should be almost invisible and barely detectable. This is the biggest giveaway in detecting a counterfeit perfume."
"Counterfeits typically weigh more than authentic bottles."


Note the direction the packaging opens up in (at 1:03) youtu.be/2Fd…=63
There should be sharp edges on the packaging flaps, not rounded (this is from a Coco Mademoiselle comparison) dino.co.uk/blo…jpg
Indent on either side of the flaps (mine has this too) dino.co.uk/blo…jpg

What does it smell like? I can't compare as I haven't smelt the real Eau Verte (but will when I'm next in Boots!). I sprayed it on my right forearm around 4am!! and there's still a lingering scent there, nearly 12 hours later - longevity is very much a skin chemistry thing, but this is how this EDT is on my skin.

I don't see anything unusual with the "top being different", though Sports Direct's picture could be better. Mine has the (embossed) silvery CC branding on the cap you would expect - took another picture i.imgur.com/5xz…g?1

Thanks for this post and the very thorough post explaining the authenticity, just ordered. Si is out of stock now, if you do not like it I would happily buy yours off you as I have been meaning to try it for a while!

I tried Si Intense just after Xmas when me and sis went Boxing Day shopping - my sister's a bit obsessed with it! It's for her birthday though! I ended up keeping one of the mini JPGs for myself

I asked in Debenhams about Alien Aqua Chic which is £20 online but OOS (TJ Hughes had it recently for £25) debenhams.com/web…_-1 all gone!

Sports Direct instore, only had 007, David Beckham, Adidas scents - asked an assistant and they said the premium scents can only be bought online.

Cristalle Eau Verte isn't typically "Chanel" to me, it's perfectly inoffensive and would suit sunny days - not sure it will ever be a huge favourite. (Mine is Allure Sensuelle)
