Can an official "Amazon.com" seller sell fake products?

I just recently purchased a cologne bottle from here, http://www.amazon.com/Jean-Paul-Gaultier-Toilette-Spray/dp/B000C214II/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359512433&sr=8-1&keywords=le+male and it came in the mail a couple weeks ago.

The "ships from and sold by" seller is Amazon.com. everything seemed okay when opening my package but I noticed something about it. First it smelled great and everything, but when I wore it, it would last not even an hour.

This cologne bottle I purchased has a high reputation of longevity (up to 6-12 hours) of scent, but I don't have those same results. If anything, not even an hour. I know there are many warnings about buying scents/perfumes/colognes online and how many are fake, but seeing as I bought this from Amazon.com, it has to be the real thing. If not, I'm never purchasing something expensive from amazon ever again. Since it's a flammable item, it can't be refund.

I also realize that your brain gets used to certain scents after a while, but I would smell coffee beans for a few minutes and go back to smelling my cologne, and I can barely get a trace of it. I'm disappointed and would like to know if you know or have ever experienced having a fake product from the seller Amazon.com. Thanks
