9 simple ways to tell an authentic perfume from a fake

While it’s more likely you’ll come across a fake perfume while browsing flea market stalls, most consumers are unaware that highly sophisticated knock-offs are also finding their way onto the shelves of large fragrance shops. Buying counterfeit perfume can not only make you feel tricked and upset, but it can also be harmful to your health. However, there are several signs that will help you to spot even the most brilliant counterfeits.

We at Bright Side have gathered together some of the best tips that will help you to choose 100% authentic fragrances.

Check the wrapping

Flawless seams


The paperboard should be white, not grayish.

Labels and inscriptions

  • Look at the gold circle. The arrow pointing to the right should always be darker than the arrow that points to the left.
  • When buying a perfume, don’t hesitate to check the manufacturer’s website to see if the information published there matches with what is provided on the packaging. Even the smallest mismatch is a sign of a counterfeit.


Color of the perfume

Bottle cap

Serial number

  • The serial number should be indicated on the bottom of the bottle (and not glued on!).
  • The serial number on the bottle should match the number on the bottom of the box. It should be imprinted on the base of the box or printed with ink.


An authentic perfume will have a high-quality bottle with a smooth and fine surface. The bottle of a fake perfume is a bit rough and contoured.

From packaging to the bottle’s cap, every detail of an original perfume is thought out. However, if you inspect a fake perfume thoroughly, you’ll find a lot of imperfections.
