Fake Perfume VS Real: Coco Mademoiselle Chanel
I got my authentic Coco Mademoiselle as a gift from one of my daddies lol. The fake one was given to my mom as a gift from one of her patients (she’s a dentist).
Coco Mademoiselle is one of my most favorite perfumes because I like how sexy and distinct it is compared to other perfumes.
It has a hint of jasmine with a deep whiff of rose.
The woody quality of the Coco Mademoiselle Chanel is something that I really like as well because it gives a certain relaxing effect.
It’s one of those scents that I consider the perfect scent if you want to seduce somebody.
Real Coco Mademoiselle Chanel
The first spritz from it delivers a vodka scent but it gradually tames down to a lovely hint of rose. The scent is similar to Fendi L’acquarossa but lighter.
Sillage is strong and provides ample impact to people surrounding you.
The original one gives slight tingly sensations on my sensitive skin and the smell lasts literally all day.
I don’t recommend going heavy handed on this perfume if you don’t want to cause nausea to others.
It’s a very feminine but mature scent and it’s easily distinguishable which also makes for a perfect “signature scent”.
Fake Coco Mademoiselle Chanel
Just like the original one, it starts smelling like liquor.
It almost instantaneously tones down to an after-shave kind of scent (like Old Spice lol) with a hint of candy.
I don’t sense any floral tones from it although the smell is not that terrible.
No sillage can be expected so if you want others to smell you, you have to inform them.
You can go heavy-handed with it because it’s just like rubbing alcohol.
Those are the observations I have in terms of scent quality from determining the difference between fake perfume vs real.
Let’s move on to something that’s easier to distinguish, packaging.
Fake Perfume VS Real Coco Mademoiselle Chanel Packaging Comparison
My authentic bottle is on life support but you’re still going to see the comparison in terms of the liquid color if you look closely.
The cap has a lining with white background and it features the famous Chanel logo.
White on the original one is not as gleaming as with the fake one.
Suffice to say, the fake one’s white is TOO white.
You can also recognize dents on the fake one even if it’s noticeably newer than the original one.
Cap itself is frosted but with the original one, you can still see through-it.
The fake one’s cap is too frosted that you’ll hardly see the nozzle peeking.
The Logo and Liquid Color
The fake one’s fonts are relatively skinnier and are already chipped.
It’s also not centered and the embedded logo is not as textured to the touch compared to the original.
The authentic has a faint rose gold tint but the fake one’s rose gold is too pronounced that its hue is just factors away from becoming pink.
Apart from the letters being skinnier, they’re not centered in the fake one.
It’s the easiest to spot and is the ultimate tell-tale sign that the Coco Mademoiselle Chanel is fake.
I think that it’s ok to buy fake ones but I’m just not sure of what they put in them.
You’ll know how important skin care is for me if you’ve been reading Filipinow.
Above all, it’s your money and your discretion.
If you want to experience almost the same quality but can’t afford to buy one, I recommend you to just buy inspired scents from perfume makers in the Philippines.
You may not get the exact scent but at the very least, your skin is safe.
The only thing that’s justifiable for me to buy fake ones is the bottles.
They’re cute to be displayed on a vanity table.
I hope I was able to help you distinguish the difference between a fake perfume vs real.
