    Cool Hi, I'm new here... I bought a bottle of Angel on ebay.....

    hello....

    I have a question.....

    I bought a bottle of Angel perfume on ebay....
    it was actually a set.....

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/231099065939...84.m1439.l2649


    Would this be considered a counterfeit ?????

    More than anything I am just curious.

    I belong to a purse forum and they all felt that this would fall under Counterfeit....
    The Name is Angel... the Font is the same, the bottle is shaped the exact same as the original
    Angel is the star shaped bottle......
    the color scheme is the same......

    However, When I posed this question on the ebay forums, many there
    felt that this is NOT counterfeit...... and that this is perfectly OK to sell this perfume......



    I am curious what your opinions would be on this......


    I have received 2 vastly different opinions on 2 different forums....
    so, I thought I would ask the professionals, and see what you all think about this......

    Thank you for your replies.....

    Cheers,

    JAG....

    It looks real to me. The seller has good feedback for the amount sold.

    Why do you think it must be fake?????

    Look at the back of the bottle and see if there is engraving usually a serial number or company name.

    Does it smell like Angel to you, how is the longevity on the skin?

    Angel was revamped a few years back new bottles and designs for the body products. This could be an older one.

    Hi & welcome, justagurlinseattle!

    It looks fine to me as well - what does it smell like?

    Why do the purse forum people think that it's a fake?

    We see far more threads here asking about counterfeits than threads disclosing actual counterfeits.

    It has the scent of Angel.....

    and there is no Engraving on the silver back of the bottle.....

    It does not say Thierry Mugler.....

    the bottle is identical as the Angel by Thierry Mugler.....

    The scent does not last at all.... NOT even on a fragrance strip.....

    A fake would be unlikely to smell of Angel - just raw alcohol usually!

    Longevity is an issue with many scents these days.

    Ebay has a Buyer Protection process if you're unhappy.

    Nowhere on the bottle does it say Thierry Mugler.....


    That sellers feedback is OK... NOT that good though for such high volume....

    the ONLY Feedback for this perfume out of the 40 sold is ONE that says it is fake....

    also the color is the exact same as Thierry Mugler Angel...
    It uses the same name and font ANGEL....
    and the bottle is identical as the Thierry Mugler Angel.....

    Yet, it doesn't say Thierry Mugler anywhere on the bottle.....

    or any of the products.....


    I asked the seller about this and they said it was their brand.....

    It has a faint scent of Angel..... BUT, not the same if you know what I mean by that.... :-)
    OK a better way to put it is.... it smells like it is trying to be Angel, though it has a more chemical
    smell......

    The seller says it is their own brand.......



    Thank you for the warm welcome.... :-)

    most of the sellers Feedback is for cleaning products.....

    Actually, I am just curious what others think about this....

    as I said, I keep getting VERY conflicting info on this....

    so, I am just trying to see what other have to say about it.....

    The "other" Fragrance web site they felt it was fake and counterfeit.... hehehehe....

    see what I mean by so many conflicting opinions on this.....

    This is because it is ANGEL perfume..... and it looks like Thierry Mugler....
    BUT, it is not ....
    as I said, the seller is the company who created this Angel perfume..
    just not the original Angel.....

    and it looks as if it would fool many different people.....


    some say it is designer inspired...... :-)

    But then it would try to smell like Angel, but not take on the entire look of Angel....

    I am asking more to garner info of what people would consider counterfeit vs Designer inspired....

    You are not happy, go the resolution on ebay.

    I have bought items from sellers who sell things totally different from fragrance or makeup. Last week a Tom Ford Enchanted eye shadow palette brand new for 30, the seller seemed to specialize in household and DIY products. Only had one TF palette and it is the real thing.

    Agree with Donna - Ebay has a resolution service for unhappy customers.

    This is a quote from the listing, so it appears to be the same product as listed and therefore not 'counterfeit' - if that description was the one shown when the item was purchased.





    eBay item number:
    231099065939

    Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.

    Item specifics
    Condition: New: A brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item (including handmade items). See the seller's listing ... Read more Brand: Zenex International

    It appears that there's already a very lengthy & lively discussion about this on Ebay...
    http://community.ebay.com/t5/Buyer-Central/would-you-consider-this-counterfeit-perfume/m-p/18740097

    I don't think that we shall have anything constructive or helpful to add to the Ebay discussion, other than to take care in making purchases in the future.
