    Default Knock-off from Singapore

    As I live in Thailand here I can find fake fragrances that cost from 100 Baht - 800 Baht (or $2.7 - $21.62). I used to hold the fake bottles and look at them and I can detect that they were fake immediately, and they are of low grade. But there are knock-off products from Singapore, which is said to be A Grade and also it has a sticker of the producer at the bottom of the bottle. For example, can you please help see the picture in the links below and can you see that it's a knock-off?

    This website is like EBAY. The seller has to be honest and this one says the products are from Singapore and they last about 3-5 hours. This is scary as the bottles look so professional, especially the Issey one. I wonder if the smells are similar to original products? However, I wouldn't pay to try. Anyone has an experience or knowledge about products from this country? I remember that not long ago someone famous here visited Singapore (Marlen?). This makes my shopping life exciting but I hate this kind of excitement!

    Hi again, after doing some research on the internet I came to this web site, which is located in Hong Kong:

    About Us:
    http://jk.en.alibaba.com/aboutus.html

    And I do wonder if they produce fragrances for Bvlgari, Burberry, Dunhill and etc?
    http://jk.en.alibaba.com/group/50140256/Perfume.html

    For example, BRIT - 200,000 bottles/months produced??? God, what's going on?

    RTbar, hope yours is original and real. The links to Chinese web site above really scares me - Bvlgari BLACK (hot for basenoters), including Brit, which I own but bought from the UK. For this Brit, the top note is not like the small vial I have, which I am sure it's 100% original. But the dry-down is about the same, though not exactly the same. I just thought that every bottle doesn't smell exactly the same and once I see this company I feel scared.

    I live in Singapore. Never seen them here before though.. Could it be that they're showing photos of the original but selling you the knock-off?

    Hi Xen, they wouldn't do that as they state clearly where are the products from. I have heard about this for a few years now, and Singapore, Hong Kong and Korea are mentioned. You don't see or hear about it there I believe you. But could it be because the laws and regulations in your country are very serious and strict, that's why the producers deal with other countries? Anyway, I've just found Le Male, Brit, Desire Blue, Bvlgari Black produced in China (Hong Kong) and they can do 200,000 bottles/month for each scent. I wonder where do they go and how much is the cost?

    I guess it's because when the people here purchase fragrances, they're buying into the brand, not so much for its smell. So they wouldn't buy a knock-off even if it smells very much like the original.
