    Default And the prize for the most counterfeited fragrance goes to...

    Although everything can be imitated,some contenders are more conspicuous than others to be bought online.
    My nominations:
    Aqua Di Gio,
    D & G By Men,
    Eternity.
    Please add these that you think it's better to be avoided for the above reason...
    It's never too late to mend.

    Not even a shadow of a doubt, it has got to be Green Irish Tweed.

    But what's the point of counterfeiting a cheap fragrance? Where's the point? If you counterfeit a 250.00 fragrance and sell it for half price your making a huge profit.

    Bulgari scents for men are widely copied in Asia. I would only buy my Bulgari from a department store.

    I've seen really bad fakes of Le Male, A*Men and Dolce & Gabbana more often than anything at real stores.

    That is very interesting, I never thought anyone would copy Bvlgari, not all that popular.

    I think I read an "official" "statistic" about this somewhere:

    And it was the women's scent: Coco Mademoiselle that had the honor.

    I'd be weary of any hot seller, though.

    Bvlgari is a HUGE brand in Asia (especially Japan and China) and the Middle East (UAE and Qatar in particular). The popularity of their jewelry and watches there "trickles down" to their perfumes. If the brand is popular somewhere in the world, it's going to be counterfeited.

    And yes, Coco Mademoiselle is faked often. But, then again, it's the #2-selling fragrance in the US, and Chanel seals up the distribution, so what do you expect?

    I second the_good_life and want to add D & G (Light Blue for women), Narciso Rodriguez, Clinique (Happy line), Cool Water, Armani (AdG of course).

    Sadly, many people buying from ebay don't know they got fake juice. For instance, the numerous positive feedbacks were given to the seller selling Chanel No. 5 for $35.
    Current Top 5

    1. Creed Aventus
    2. A*Men Pure Malt
    3. L'instant Extreme
    4. Nasomatto Duro
    5. CDG - Kyoto

    Both. They are the perfume kiosks in the mall and those Perfumania and Fragrance Outlets you see around.

    My guess would be the latest Adidas fragrances. Acqua Di Gio might be the best selling designer scent, but the $ is still peanuts compared to Adidas sales worldwide.

    Some of those pseudo-frags I have seen in the Fragrance District (New York) have caused me to laugh out loud for real.....

    Yeah there was a kiosk selling fake Creeds in the Galleria so I went last week and finally spoke with the management about it. I am surprised Perfumania has fakes though.

    AdG is one of the most copied fragrances as well. Most of the mass marketed fragrances out today smell like clones of AdG with subtle differences

    I've seen knockoffs of GIT, too, in bottles labeled "Davidoff Cool Water". They're sold locally, at the likes of Macy's, Kohl's, Walgreens, and even Walmart.

    (Just following the train of thought)

    There are also knockoffs of XS pour Homme sold at upscale stores with exorbitant price in bottles labeled "Himalaya".
