How to identify branded perfumes?

Perfume is the name that is well known by all. But really it gets hard to find the difference between local and branded perfumes. Since there is a lot of buzz created in perfumes industry, it becomes so crucial to know the disparity among them.

So there are several ways to distinguish the branded perfumes among cluster of the perfume bottles. Some of the tips are stated below to recognize the branded perfumes conveniently.

1.Watch out the Packaging

Packaging of the perfume is the first and foremost element that the customers get in touch with. Check out the package of the bottle either whole appearance or feel.

However, watch the cellophane as it should be transparent while sticking cleanly to the carton pack. Wrinkled surface will strain the attention and could question its originality.
Though, before making any conclusion, it has to be kept in mind that the package could be damaged due to terrible transportation services. So, you can check the packaging keenly with the proper comparison of the whole market.

 2.Check the Bottle

Other than the packaging, make sure to check out the origin of the particular perfume showed by the “Made in (Wherever)” sentence. However, even if a perfume is carrying origin but there are other clues as well that will indicate its originality.

Check out the bottle quality as it should be spotless and smooth without any bubble in its glass. Also, make sure to check that there are no distortions on logo and texts on the bottle while the cap should have to be stick as tight to the bottle.

3.Appearance of the Perfume

After the above aspects, keep a check on the perfume as it should be transparent without any sediment and clouds as well as particles at the foundation of the perfume bottle. Originality of the perfume is considered by the presence of its multi-layered notes that are named as top notes, middle notes, and the base notes.

Perfumes other than branded perfumes don’t carry multi-layers and just indistinctly shows few similar aspects like original. So one needs to be careful as these fake perfumes could carry harmful chemicals that could affect the skin.

4. The Barcode factor

Most of the perfume customers think that barcode indicates the originality of the particular brand, but that is not true overall.

Originality of the branded perfumes cannot be judged by the barcode as it can easily be fabricated through latest computer graphics programs.
So, it is recommended to prefer the perfume shopping by a reasonable retailer who has good reputation in the local market with decent customer base.
