For a cologne that's still "$62.50" on Nautica's website (lol), this is a great price.

Hasn't dipped below $16 from Amazon in a long time, was surprised to see this price when I checked my Amazon cart today.

Every Nautica cologne I've bought on Amazon has been fake. Four for four.

The last batch wasn't too bad, but it's east to tell it's fake when you put it up against the real thing, and the test of time.

And if you don't have the real thing to put it up against, how do you tell it's fake?

Seriously, I didn't know this was ever a concern, especially sold and shipped by Amazon.

Not to mention, I haven't seen a single review yet noting to be wary of fakes.

Did you know that all the same items are stored together in amazon warehouses and that is the reason several hand bag sellers and other manufacturers are leaving amazon because 3rd party seller fakes are mixed in with legitimate seller items and people are getting fakes that are sold by the manufacturer but stored in amazon warehouses.

Didn't know that.

You probably won't know the difference unless you're used to the real thing.. The cologne I'm wearing right now is a knockoff, shipped and sold by Amazon.

Look up the reviews for Nautica Voyage. You'll notice there are two caps. One made of metal that splits in the middle and has a wide base for the sprayer. The fakes have a plastic cap where the whole thing is one piece. and has a skinny sprayer.

That would explain a lot of the reviews saying they got a fake, and others got real ones, shipped and sold by Amazon. Good to know!

The good news is I have a little sample vial of Life to test against when it gets here. Should be reasonably easy to compare the two and see if I got a real bottle. Thanks for all the help.

Cote is the distributor for Nautica. If you have a question, ask them.

FWIW, got this yesterday. Everything seems to check out as real, from box to bottle, and the scent seems to match the sample vial I have.

Only bummer is the cap is dented! For $12 I'm not complaining, though.
