    Default Kokorico already being faked?

    I though that it is too new and not a big hit, but seems that it has various fakes around ebay:

    http://www.ebay.com/sch/vesko1213/m....id=p4340.l2562

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kokorico-Jea...item19ce3624a9

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kokorico-Jea...item231a8bfcfd

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kokorico-Jea...item1c24398fd7

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kokorico-Jea...item3f1443a3b5

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kokorico-Jea...item3a710a58db



    Always new sellers, no box, no feedback, some list other things as Acqua di Gio, 1 Million and Le Male (very dark blue Le Male, not slightly green, clearly fake)

    Or it's a coincidence that every new seller that sells factory problematic Le Male and boxed 1 Million are gifted with a Kokorico, throw the box away and then decided to sell it?

    All those new sellers are based in Bulgaria. There must be a lot of blind-buying of Kokorico in Sofia

    Wouldn't surprise me as Le Male is one of or is the mostly faked fragrance on ebay.

    Interesting. Glad I got mine when it first came out.

    I tried this in store recently. I wasn't impressed at all. Smells cheap and harsh. L'Instant extreme wannabe.

    Bulgaria and Poland are the home of the counterfeit market in Europe. From steroids to fragrance. My wife worked with a few girls from Bulgaria and the stories where crazy. I was offered not that long ago, if I would be interested in buying fragrances from them that they would have brought back to Ireland from Bulgaria. At half the price of the stores. I am not that naive to have fallen for it. Though I do know people who are buying these fakes believing them to be real.

    While on the subject of Gaultier knockoffs, I saw designer impostor knockoffs of Le Male Terrible at flea market shows here in Fort Wayne six months before the genuine article was released in the US as a Sephora exclusive. One should note that these weren't fakes, just impostors in similarly-styled packaging.

    I didn't sniff it, but I found it funny that the knockoff makers beat Gaultier/BPI/Shiseido to the US market.

    And this shit was just released too. Doesn't this finally prove to you guys that ANYTHING can be faked nowadays. Nothing is immune anymore. My recommendation is to STOP BUYING FRAGRANCES ON EBAY, PERIOD! The only way to fight back against this stuff is to stop giving them your money.
