    Default Watch Out - Fake Testers - Armani Paco Rabanne etc

    Bought couple of testers from this site - https://beauty-world.eu I also bought 2 x Paco Rabanne One Million Intense (£47 which was quite cheap), and inside were both fake ones. They packaged it in a real box with batch code on the bottom and used a cellophane wrapper to wrap it. There is no batch code on the bottle inside and it is poorly made and had scratches all over the place. ( I will post pictures later on )

    And I've seen similar items all over the internet, just be aware. Always check in store of what a tester should look like.

    Both fake, see the following pics. The writing on the store tester is in silver, whereas the fake is in white. And at the back of the store tester it has the ingredients, etc.

    Thankfully I don't buy testers.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Not surprised buying it from an online site in Bulgaria.

    That counterfeit Acqua di Gio Profumo is particularly bad. Downright terrible!

    I like how the store that had the authentic tester, stuck the anti-theft strip

    directly across the notes. Very helpful.

    They couldn't stick it on the side? Oy !!! :P
    I smell marshmallows!

    They used Courier (the font) to type "DEMONSTRATION" on the first bottle?! Hilarious!
