Bottle and packaging do not match picture - may be fake

Summary: So as many here have stated, the bottle and the packaging don't look exactly like the photo. There is no engraved Dior name on the bottle and the box itself is has many differences. Will be contacting Amazon as they were the seller, this was not purchased thru a third party. It looks like there have been enough complaints that they are reviewing whoever supplied them with this batch.
Summary: I bought a ton of items from Amazon and it is the first time they sent me a fake item. The perfume bottle doesn't have any name or brand name on it, and the box doesn't look like as image. The scent is weird and not last. This is a gift for my wife so now what's ashamed. I try to return Amazon but cannot because of stupid policy related to hazardous and flammable materials. What I have to do now ???
Not authentic even though seller was Amazon.com LLC

Summary: Bought this hoping it would be the real deal since it was sold by Amazon itself. Got it in the mail and it was a fake and not authentic.There was no label on the bottle whatsoever. The color was off and it just looked CHEAP! Glad I did not pay for this at full price because I would be pissed going through the hassle of shipping it back.
Summary: I received imitation, not the original. Bottle didn't have name and brand name written on it. Fragrance was little odd and didn't last. I used to buy this one many years ago in Europe, was very happy ( it was original). This online purchase was a "fraud", I needed to ship it back. Seller wanted to charge me a restocking fee 15% that was waived after I complained, if I was sent original as expected, I would not have to ship it back...
Summary: Oh no!!! *cough* *cough* ~definitely not for me :P Headache inducing combo of sharp floral and syrupy sweet with a cumin spice (aka "armpit reek) finish. To make things worse, the lasting power is through the roof - this fragrance STICKS to the skin for an eternity! I had to use rubbing alcohol to remove it completely.
Summary: Beautiful bottle, and that's almost it. It was such a disappointment, back in the 90's after the two latest Diors (Dune in 1991 & Tendre Poison in 1992) that were a joy to me. Dolce vita was created in 1995 and that's when I started hating the new trend in Dior Fragrances. Soo sweet... the magnolia smashes you in the face (though I like white florals, Magnolia is a note I cannot stand) and the candy/peachy note make is definitely unbearable to me.
Summary: I agree with the shoulder pad image, add bright lipstick and big hair, along the lines of Knots Landing – yup, that sums up what I spritzed on at a duty free shop. I was overpowered by the pungent smell of over ripe fruit, powder, some wood and an obnoxious sweetness all mixed together. I later learned that it has peach, which always disagrees with my chemistry. Perhaps the perfume strength is another story, but I’m not going near this little hussy again!
Summary: Based on the reviews and the notes, I really thought I would like this one. Rose, Apricot, Peach, Cinnamon, Heliotrope, Sandalwood, AND Vanilla? Wow. Now that sounds like it would suit me to a T. Unfortunately, it doesn't. There is something a bit irritating to me, perhaps cardamon? Maybe it was the cinnamon, but that would be a first with a cinnamon accord. Also, it's a bit too rich in white florals, especially LOV but I also sense jasmine.
