From look and fragrance, you will not be able to judge whether your glass perfume bottle has an original or fake product inside it. This is because the people who make these fake products, copy the same brand image and also put the same fragrance so that customers do not feel that there is something fishy. However, there are always some clues or hints which can help you know whether the perfume you are buying is an original or a fake. Here are a few things you need to pay extra attention to, to know if your perfume is an original or a fake.  

  • Scan the Packaging

This does not mean that you need to put the package in a scanning machine. What you need to do is pay more attention to the packaging. Sometimes, in order to escape copyright issues, the makers of these fake products try to misspell the brand name. It will be a minuscule difference, one you may easily overlook. Some may think it’s a typo and ignore it. But a big brand name would never commit such a foolish mistake of mis-spelling their own name and letting the product go into the market like that. Therefore, this can be one way of determining the product’s authenticity.

  • Look for the Details
    The original perfume bottle would have all the necessary details such as expiry date, chemicals used, instructions, warnings and so on. However, there are very minimal chances that the fake perfume bottle would have this much detailing on their product bottle. This is one more way of figuring out whether the product you are considering purchasing is fake or not. If it is empty perfume bottle, you can even check the consistency of the liquid inside.

  • Never Buy Perfumes from Local Shops
    If you want to buy original products then you need to make sure that you buy perfumes from reputed shops. Buying such things from shady shops may increase the chances of fraud. Therefore, always buy perfumes from a trusted seller. Also, while making your purchase, make sure you take a bill so that if in future if you come across something negative related to the product, you can get it exchanged or talk to them about it.

This does not have anything to do with how smart or intelligent you are. Anyone can get fooled by such fraudulent practices. All you need to do is be vigilant and pay extra attention to the points mentioned above, and you will be able to save yourself from such fraud.
