FUNNY FAKES

FUNNY FAKES A friend of mine once told me he came across a pair of trainers « Mike » while on holidays in Peru.
He didn’t get them but afterwards regretted it because it was so ridiculous that he thought it would have been great fun ! Well, needless to say, I’ll buy a pair of « Mike air » anytime just to laugh myself to tears every time I put them on and see people making fun on them in the street, but I have never seen one…

What I have seen though are fake perfumes in the Sunday market in Englewood and it took me a few seconds to notice they were fakes.
But once I saw the first one, I saw the other ones and that’s when it got funny !

- A bottle of Dakar stood for Drakkar Noir, same packaging, same font.
- J’amore (which actually doesn’t mean anything) instead of J’adore.
- Firenight instead of Fahrenheit.

I just shot the three that were on display, there were many more but my memory fails me and I have no recollection.

Anyways I smelled them and they were actually rather good replicas (I have worked with perfumery products and know the 3 perfumes just well enough to recognize them).

I have noticed lately that many perfumers start copying famous perfumes which I believe is completely legal if they just use their nose as the main tool to copy the juices recipes but they usually give them standard names and package them in bland packaging.

These one gave me a great laugh.
