Amazon selling fake fragrances

22
Found 18th JanEdited by:"themachman"
Bought some Dior Sauvage from Amazon which i have done a couple of times with vouchers i got for chrimbo. Went to open it before and noticed no sticker on top with the CD emblem. the packaging was flimsy and scruffy and checked it along my old box and found it was different, went online to find the tell tale signs of a fake one and they all match! Now i know when you buy off Amazon theres some dodgy sellers so i always buy sold by Amazon and delivered by them so i know it's genuine. just been on to customer services and theyre picking it up tomorrow and refunding my money. also theyre going to investigate it and contact the manufacurer. has anyone else been sold a fake through Amazon selling it? Has sort of put me off ordering from Amazon now

It’s not only amazon that can be accused of selling fakes ( albeit it’s actually the sellers on amazon not amazon themselves ) I bought some Prada after shave last summer from a duty free shop in Manchester Airport.

It was clearly a fake as the smell faded and disappeared within 20 minutes - I got in touch with them and they said nope not fake they only sell 100% genuine but offered to return and they would test it in their lab.

So I did ( returned it ) and was refunded in full ( £40 ) almost straight away - no explanation nothing just a message to say thanks for returning the product and following tests we have decided to refund your purchase.

Watered down smelly’s - what’s it coming too

Penny this was sold by Amazon though? Unless they use third parties to sell it?

Likely to be a third party marketed and sold by amazon Machman’ not that it makes it right in any way as amazon themselves are to blame.

yeah ill be sticking to boots from now on
Unless they are an official supplier the buyers for any shop, reseller or warehouse could end up buying fake goods and passing them on, not even big companies are immune.
This is starting to happen more from amazon, happens with flash memory as well, although they deny it, they mix 3rd parties stock with their own so fakes enter the supply chain.
Thought they may have bought direct from the manufacturer but as i thought maybe they use third party sellers?

Amazon is just turning into mainstream website roulette. Shame as used to be great!!.. contemplating not renewing this year
Many items that are "fulfilled" by Amazon are kept together with Amazon own products in the warehouse. So you could have
got one from the 3rd party seller. Good thing is you get a refund quickly
Yes I've been sent fake electronics - "Despatched from and sold by Amazon"

They wern't very helpful about it either.

The problem is that the packaging for fakes are getting so good that even big legitimate companies and suppliers are getting duped, unless they buy direct from the manufacturer and ensure that the supply is not tampered with at all stages. This is also why some retailers have recently started to refuse refunds for fragrances and perfumes from customers.
You know that old saying don't you? If you smell a rat....... you ahhh..... you ahhh, sorry it's so old I can't remember it
