Hello everyone. I`m pretty much new in fragrance world and I want to ask a question that bothers me for some time now. The thing is that out there are alot of fake smells being sold even in big shops. When you buy smells how you can be sure that it`s not fake? Here is what I mean. For example, I never have smelled Armani Code. So I go to the shop, ask to smell a tester and here is the problem - how can I know if it`s fake or not if I don`t know how it should smell? Or for example this kind of situation. I go to the shop, ask to smell tester and later order same smells from online shop, but when they arrive I feel that smell is little bit different. But how can I know who is selling fake - the local perfume shop or online shop? Is there any kind of place where I could smell testers with standard of real smells? I guess the best way would be to go directly to the factory in France where smells are being produced, but I doubt somebody gonna let me in there. So guys, when you buy perfume how you define if it`s fake or not. Where do you find that standart of original smell?
