    Default I thought I've bought a fake JPG Le Male Terrible but...

    Hello Bners,
    as the title said I bought a 75 ml EDT JPG le Male Terrible and I think it's a fake.
    I say this because I don't smell the fragrance 5-10 mn after spraying it. It doesn't project at all from my opinion.
    But something is weird: the fragrance remains intact in my clothes even 8 hours later.
    And something more weird: after some hours when I go to take a bath I smell the fragrance again.
    Is this really a fake or is my nose the problem?
    I use Yves Rocher Transat or H pour Homme Titanium and I still smell it 30 mn after, but not the JPG le Male Terrible.
    Waiting for your responses.

    The bottom line is, if you're not happy with it, see if you can return it and get a refund.

    I bought it with a individual without the box, not in a store.
    But is there a method about how to spot a fake perfume?

    Check the code on the bottle online and see if it matches up

    Normally there is a code on the bottom of the box and usually under the bottle it varies though, if the code is scratched it's most likely a fake also I'd recommend checking reviews of websites before using them with trustpilot

    Not true at all. Companies that source their stuff from the grey market will scratch off the code in order to hide where it came from. I've received bottles from fragrancex with the codes scratched off that are 100% authentic.

    Op, your best bet is to test the fragrance alongside one that you know to be legit. Take it to a department store and test it side by side.

    That's what I'll do, I'll go in a perfume store and try their JPG Le Male Terrible to see.
    Maybe it's my nose the problem
