4. Labels and inscriptions
- Look at the gold circle. The arrow pointing to the right should always be darker than the arrow that points to the left.
- When buying a perfume, don’t hesitate to check the manufacturer’s website to see if the information published there matches with what is provided on the packaging. Even the smallest mismatch is a sign of a counterfeit.
Looking through the shelves of fragrance stores, we can see perfumes that appear uncannily similar in look and smell to some of the high-end designer perfumes. This simple trick allows sneaky manufacturers to protect themselves from litigation. So don’t forget to inspect the perfume bottle carefully before you purchase it.
6. Color of the perfume
Famous brands don’t use lots of dye in their products, which is why the color of authentic perfume is usually pale. The striking ’chemical’ color of a liquid is the sign of a fake perfume.
