    Default What is in my fake Royal Water?

    Recently purchased a 4 oz Royal Water on eBay---won the auction for less than $35. The bottle is nice, but predictably, not authentic.

    HOWEVER, I really, truly like the scent inside. It is soft, sweet, and lemony, with a hint of musc. It does not seem to evolve considerably, but has terrific sillage and longevity. I'm lying here in bed ~16 hours after application, and I still smell it where it was sprayed.

    I'm sure this is a cheaper, popular fragrance decanted into a fake Creed bottle---but which popular lemony fragrance could it be?

    After reading the reviews of Royal Water here, and after being promised a condition-free refund from the eBay seller, I am very happy to have acquired this one

    May be they just make their own fragrance

    Royal Water is one of my favourite actually. It smells divine . The real thing that is.

    Just want to report that 24 hours after initial application, the scent is still there, as a soft, quiet musc.

    How do you know it is fake?

    1) No lot number,
    2) metal around the top of the bottle instead of white plastic,
    3) 32 bucks for 4 oz at auction,
    4) distorted image of james creed in the literature,
    5) the fact that the scent does not sound like that described on basenotes and on fragrantica, especially with respect to development.
    6) finally, the seller offered me an unconditional refund when i raised the issue with him. he seemed to know.

    Hmm, something that costs 60USD/1.7 ounces seems pretty cost inefficient for a fake though...

    would you like to post some photos of that ? Royal Water isnt popular enough to be faked.

    I would say you are taking a chance with fakes you do not know what they put in it.

    Sounds like you have a lemon citrus scent called, Royal Water by Creed.

    Lol. I was going to say, what he's describing sounds remarkably close to what Royal Water actually is.
