An interesting post posing intriguing questions. Of course it fits in with other areas in the arts - where it has been estimated that 30% of master painters' works in the marketplace are forgeries, with a likely comparable in museum collections. I have personally noticed forgeries in costume design sketches for iconic stars and costume designers. And they sold at outrageous prices!


Counterfeit fragrances seems to be a huge market. Just look on eBay! If you're trying a new fragrance you probably won't know if it's counterfeit or not. But if you're picking up your "old faithful" you should be able to notice the nuances that all counterfeit fragrances seem to have. Less sillage/longevity, chemical alteration, subtle packaging differences. Thanks for the very interesting post!
