    Default Which Creeds are often faked?

    I know ebay is notorious for fake SMW and MI, but are there any others that people tend to fake? I see alot of Tabaromes, OV and OS on ebay - are those also favourites of fakulators? Anyone ever buy a fake besides an SMW or MI?

    Fake Green Irish Tweed, to be sure.

    I have read about fake Himalaya, but don't know the evidence.

    I think the primary risk for buying less popular Creeds on eBay is that they make be older stock and not as fresh. I had that happen both with a bottle and even samples.

    Oh right, Frich Tweed! How can I forget that one!

    They definitely tend to be older stock, but usually that hasn't been a problem for me. To be safe I've always bought my Creeds used from collectors either here or on ebay, and avoided anything "new in box" unless it's at a local store, but I'm seeing some tempting specimens and am not sure how to proceed!

    I've always assumed anything "new in box" is a fake.

    In no particular order..

    Tabarome
    Silver Mountain Water
    Himalaya
    Green Irish Tweed
    Royal Water
    Original Vetiver

    But thats not all, im sure there are more imposters than those mentioned above.

    That's why you never buy off ebay! I've always bought mine from reputable online stores or I just go buy it retail from Neiman Marcus.
