You need to take care when buying gifts of perfumes, as they aren’t protected by copyright. The perfume industry relies on old-fashioned secrecy to help protect their interests. The original fragrance is difficult to duplicate as designer and signature scents are extremely complex. If you don’t have a good sense of smell, the copy will likely smell different.
It is also very difficult to detect the actual ingredients in these perfumes, as they each have a unique ingredient only experts can identify. Most intellectuals are able to identify the basic ingredients, but they can’t tell you the exact ratios or combinations of fragrances.
We are cheated when buying women’s fragrances, as we do not know the difference between an authentic perfume and a cheap copy. It is legal to design such fake women’s scents, but it is illegal to copy the labeling and packaging. This is how people like us are duped into purchasing counterfeit fragrances at prices that rival the originals. They have an excellent sense of scent and can tell the difference between originals and fakes.
