How To Check If Perfume Is Authentic

Does it sometimes occur to you that your cheap designer fragrance might end up to be fake? What are the things you should look out for before going on to purchase one? If it seems too good to be true, it may probably be a counterfeit. In case a designer fragrance becomes so cheap, it’s likely a fake.

In this article, we have been able to come up with ten tips that can be used to verify the authenticity of your perfume.


Package – The first element of the perfume that will be noticed is the package. Be on the lookout for grammar mistakes, misspellings, punctuation or any form of errors in the perfume’s name and description. Any authentic designer perfume box will never be seen with a misspelling or any other print error.


Carefully take a look at the box. Any high-end perfume manufacturer will obviously make use of high quality paperboard when creating their product’s carton. The thin packaging indicates a fake.


Bottle – The bottle’s quality should definitely be impeccable. The surface should be smooth. There must be no bubbles in the glass. Also, the inscriptions have to be precise. No smudges must exist on the logos and texts. The cap should not come off when the bottle is turned upside down. It should stick tightly to the bottle.


Perfume – The perfume contained in the bottle has to be completely transparent. There must be no sediment, not even a difference in nuances. Also, there must be no particles or clouds in the liquid at the bottle’s bottom.


Smell the fragrance, observing any signs of unexpected or unusual odors. Also, search for any signs or symptoms of skin irritation. Unless you are already allergic to fragrances and perfumes your skin should probably remain clear, free from rash, itchiness, and blemishes.


Carefully take a look at the cellophane wrap. On an authentic perfume, the cellophane is wrapped around the box closely. The cellophane is not tightly wrapped in most counterfeit products.


Look out for excess adhesive tape or glue. If a lot of adhesive tape or glue exist on the exterior of the packaging or inside the perfume box, the perfume is not authentic.


Scrutinize the barcodes. Barcodes are often located at the bottom of the perfume box. In case you notice that they are at the side of the box, you should probably be suspicious.


Be on the lookout for batch number, control numbers, or serial numbers. Be sure you can find all these. You can even make inquiries about the batch number of the label using an email in case you have suspicions.


Be cautious of people claiming that they are reselling the perfume, especially over the Internet. They can say they got the perfume as a gift and don’t want it. In case you are not familiar with the perfume’s designer examine it first at a local store.
