How to know if your designer's perfume is genuine or fake

How to know if your designers perfume is genuine or fake
These days imitation perfumes have exactly the same designer’s name, almost identical labels, boxes, bottles and very similar scents! So how would you tell that the designer’s perfume that you’re about to purchase is genuine? It’s really not that easy since counterfeiters have become masters of their crime with the aid of modern digital imaging and printing techniques. They are capable of producing almost identical replicas of all the major leading perfume brands on the market today. As a consumer you may never really know, until you experience the actual fragrance which may be close to but not exactly as it should. You'll discover that the perfume does NOT last as long, perhaps as little as one hour instead of half a day or longer as is the case with original designer perfume.



Things you should know if the perfume your are going to purchase is genuine or fake

1. Fragrance Consistency should be transparent and clear and color should be consistent. The Fragrance should not be overly oily.

2. Ensure that the seller guarantees the fragrance is 100% original and has return policy.

3. Fragrance smell should not be bitter or sour and should smell fresh.

4. On Ebay, check if the seller is Paypal verified. Sellers of counterfeit products are afraid to disclose their contact information to Paypal. If the seller is Paypal verified paypal has completed the necessary steps to ensure that the seller provided the right address.

5. The perfume that you are going to purchase should not have any skin reactions It should not make your skin itchy or create rashes.

6. Be suspicious about bargains. If a fragrance or cosmetic is too cheap, it may be a fake or old.

7. Check the box. The color should be identical and the cardboard good quality.

8. Buy from a reputable seller that has been in business for some time and has an ABN number.

9. Check the printing. It should have correct information, including spelling, logo and print style.

10. The color should match the color of sample bottles in department stores or boutiques. Color quality doesn't always show up well in photos, so ask the seller to photograph all the bottles of that kind of perfume in that concentration with a white background. If there is relative variation, start getting suspicious.
Fakes often get the color slightly too dark or too light and are inconsistent.

11. Fake bottles are often badly made. There should be no air bubbles in the glass and the moulding marks should be even. Fake perfume bottles are generally poor quality compared to the genuine bottles.

12. Bottle labels should be positioned correctly and contain correct spelling, print style, logo and trademark.

13. Fakes print the information onto the glass with a paint-like ink. If you can scrape the ink off with a fingernail, it is likely to be faked.

14. On Ebay, check the seller’s feedback, if the seller has bad feedback this could mean problems with your purchase.

15. Look for a bubble in the spray tube. The bubble indicates that it has never been sprayed. Some sellers will take a large bottle of perfume and pour it into smaller bottles this is called decanting. You can often distinguish decanted perfume-the spray tube does not have air bubbles inside.

Take time to compare prices of products before deciding to buy. You have better chance of finding the best deal if you can spend time comparing prices and offers. When purchasing online, Consumers should look for reputable websites that have good ratings and guarantee their Discount Perfume products.
Considering all these tips would help you know if your designer's perfume is genuine or fake

Thanks for the great tips. I have once been a victim of buying fake perfume over ebay but the sad part there is that We can't be sure if we're buying the original from ebay because we can't see it until we have paid it and got it deliver at home.Too late to regret of trusting.:-( very sad. But now I've learned my lesson.

The Best of Buffalo said...

Some of fake perfume irritates my skin. That is my indication if the perfume is fake. And after the day you want to vomit by what you smell like because of that fake perfume. You are right you have to smell fresh on genuine ones. This is the first time I got to know about they have to have paypal account something, I will check it whenever i buy.

I brought my family to the city and thought we were getting a good deal!! well my 20year old was the one who said..'mom the color is different and i know it is not my perfume. after some checking out i was shocked. they are selling this on the streets. How do they get a way with this. they got me once but no more.

Copy paste said...

Very good advices, there are a lot of fake products running on Ebay, it is hard to know if it is true or not because we can't see it in front of us, hopefully, we can read buyers's feedbacks.

Joan said...

I have found the old saying "if it sounds to good to be true it probably is to good to be true" in this case as a rule of thumb.

Thanks for highlighting this ongoing problem. There are many ways to spot fate perfumes, one is the wrapping and packaging of an item. Every original perfume has its own unique wrapping and packaging. Check the color and hue if they are faded and fancy.

perfumlover said...

Thanx for the informative blog.
Just want to share my knowledge on this.
Check these things before buying from unknown seller.
1)If you purchase with the box then see the product batch no. Its always there on the bottle either etched or a sticker or printed on the bottle.It is very difficult to copy.The no should match with the no on the box.
2)If you think everything is clear with bottle and packaging and smell etc. Then just hold the bottle against any lamp or tube light or in daylight and see if there is any suspended particle or impurities present in the bottle. Normally high end perfume are made with highest quality precision so genuine bottle will never have these suspended particle or impurities in the juice.If you find it in your bottle then it is sure your bottle is a fake one or tampered or diluted with something else.Be ware of this.This is the perfect test to spot the odd man out.It works 200%.Trust me.

Liked your tips and would follow that from henceforth. I was duped not only on the high street vendors but also on a top online perfume website. I do not want to name it because I was left bemused that they sold me a fake? It was was favourite Paco and I know it inside out and wondered why the smell inst strong and also why then nosal was very hard to press. Something didn't weigh up and I called them up and they fortunately changed it very quickly but if this happens from trustable online perfume retailers then who can we trust? For me I'd only trust the shops from now onwards! All companies out there to bump up their profits somewhere or the other are involved in this trade! It's a shame this kind of abuse can't be stopped easily!
