When buying a product, the consumer usually pays attention to its expiration date, but cannot find it on some products. This is due to the fact that many manufacturers indicate the information is hidden in the form of a batch code. As a rule, this is found on perfumes and cosmetics. We tell you how to check the desired perfume by the batch code and how to use it to check the authenticity of the product.
Check batch code online
It is easy to find services on the net that decipher the batch code indicated on perfumes. Sites offer free use of a cosmetic calculator and are available to any user. Sometimes registration is required for verification, in most cases it is not required.
Typically, platforms operate in the same way. Many resources operate in a similar way. The algorithm of how to check the batch code of the desired perfume on the service:
- Select the desired brand of fragrance from the list.
- Enter the item number in the specified field.
- Press the start calculation button.
After the last step, there are two options.
If the marking is correct, then the service will issue data on toilet water or another product (release date and expiration date). Also, this way you can find out about the delay. If the code is incorrect, the information will not open.

What is a batch code
On many perfumes, the year of manufacture and expiration in the usual form are not indicated. At the same time, there is a non-standard combination of numbers and letters, which is indicated on the sticker or applied directly to the bottle by embossing or engraving. This explains what an unusual batch code is. Some examples are given in the table.
|Christian Dior||The 1st digit is the year of manufacture, the 2nd character of the code is the month (a - January, b - February, then similarly).|
|Kenzo||The 1st digit of the code is the year of issue.|
|Givenchy||The 1st digit is the year of issue.|
|Giorgio Armani||The 2nd letter of the code is the year of issue. E - 2018, F - 2019 and beyond. Change every 10 years.|
|Guerlain||The 1st digit of the code is the year of manufacture, the second letter is the month (in alphabetical order).|
The cipher allows you to check:
- best before date;
- date of manufacture.
In addition to practical purposes, a correctly indicated batch code indicates the originality of a perfume. The fact is that not all manufacturers use such a cipher, but eminent and popular firms do not miss this type of marking.
Where is the batch code
Finding a batch code is easy, because the manufacturer of a quality product does not hide information about it. Major brands duplicate the code on two packages.
If a batch code is not found on the bottle on the trading floor, then you can contact the consultant with a request for a quality certificate or write to the support service of the required company.

Even before buying perfume products, the code must be evaluated visually. In doing so, it is important that:
- the code was clear;
- the numbers matched on the bottle and packaging.
If the last point is not fulfilled, then it is definitely a fake.
You can check the batch code:
- from the seller, having studied the accompanying documentation;
- on the official website of the company by sending a question by e-mail;
- through a calculator on special Internet sites.
Using a smartphone right in the store, you can quickly check the goods by batch code online.

The manual technique is simple, consider it using the example of code 7290010159253:
- We add together all even positions, and multiply the resulting amount by 3: (2+0+1+1+9+5) ×3=18×3=54.
- We add odd numbers to each other, excluding the last digit: 7+9+0+0+5+2=23.
- We add the two obtained values: 54+23=77. The last digit is taken into account - 7.
- Subtract 7 from 10: 10-7=3.
- We check the equality of the value with the check digit: 3=3.
The coincidence of the calculated digit with the control indicates the authenticity of the barcode. The manual method is not a 100% proof of originality, as counterfeit manufacturers can come up with suitable combinations. The discrepancy between the calculated digit of the control indicates an obvious fake.
