To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Batch 9252, age 10+ years, made in Germany (according to CheckFresh). Received very quickly to my surprise. One spritz on the neck last night as a test and I could still faintly smell it in the morning. Can't comment on the sillage at this time. I'm no expert on notes, I guess I can smell lavender and a hint of cinnamon, it is quite a pleasant scent.
The presentation is very nice, I like the design of the bottle, the nozzle is quite difficult to see though, would be nice if the top had a small white dot indicator to let you know which way it's pointing. The ergonomics are not too great for someone who has small hands, but this is not too much of an issue as I am only going to be using the product once a day at most.
I think it's a copy, not the real thing. In terms of packaging, it's a far cry from what I bought from the London store. The fragrance is also very light, can not last, we recommend that you do not continue to buy! This product will let you down!
