Odour-e Me!

(Fake perfume Man)

It’s natural human nature to want to feel good. Feel fresh. Hygiene is the word they give it. In the quest to be hygienic a human being uses the help of many a things. Water, soap, face-wash, and last but never the least important thing, perfumes. They apparently come in all shapes and sizes. Some are cheap, some are not.

Here is the tale of a person selling these very perfumes claiming they are “100 % original”. You may come across this table in the picture above if you stroll around the “Gol Market” in Jinnah super and go towards the parking area. Attractive table I tell you. Loads of different colorful bottles, posters, the whole nine-yards. Everything you’d want in a good perfume/fragrance store, right at your disposal. The reason I am writing this is to let all who read know that these perfumes/fragrances, that the seller dude claims as being original, are sadly NOT original. You may find a “daniel hill desire” instead of a “dunhill desire” and be told by the seller that it infact is ” a misprint”. Many people in the quest for cheap fragrances that seemingly look “good” get ripped off here. He will tell you that this is ‘custom ka maal” which some “Pia dude” bought. The story as it stands, is not authentic because he tells one person something else, and one person something else. Cunning salesman. But then again, people would argue “this man needs to make a living too”. But then again, he could tell people they are fake, and earn a living too. He charges 1200 rs for a cologne to one person and for the same cologne, he charges someone 1500. The tricks of being a salesman, look for people who WANT something badly and rip them off as bad as you possibly can. I have passed by this table many times, even stopped to listen to what he tells his customers. But then again, if someone from the PIA brings them in, however he does, i’m sure he tips people off too so that they don’t get caught. I am not aware of the custom repurcussions for bringing in stuff from outside and selling it telling people it’s from the customs but this person right here, this person in the picture, is just a poor salesman who tells people what his cunning senior salesman tells him to say.

So people, the next time you want to buy a “branded” perfume for a loved one or for yourself, in order to save yourself a few hundred rupees, don’t get ripped off and buy stuff from here. It’s fake, it starts to smell weird after a while, and the bottle does break.

Hooray for daniel hill.. ermm dunhill!!! *waves hands*

    Unbranded perfumes are dangerous. They can cause skin diseases in numbers that one can’t even count.

    Oh yeah for sure they can harm the skin and dangerous for the body parts such as eye, noce or tongue. Hey they should be banned by the Govt of Pakistan.

    How about fake watch, leather goods, machines, other electronics the list can go on and on even the tea is fake, I think Govt should take some solid steps against them.

    Thoughts go more abroad, even the Mombai Terror Attack was also fake…lolzzzzzz

    So let’s see here, fake watches, fake machines, other electronics, radios, etc, they work, then they die. A fake chemical can cause specific degree burns. Plus I do not get how the "mombai" terror attacks are valid here, for my post was about how people are ripped off by this very man using false pretenses.

    Context issues maybe?!

    "Lol-zz!!"

    Sorry Dude, did not wanted to mix the issue but what to do its too much going on in our world against Pakistan, the TV is front of me while I was replying you so that thought also came into my mind and I wrote about it as well….

    I have seen that place. The Bottled perfumes are 100% fake. Look for the testers, they are better if not original. I bought few last year from Karachi for 40/- each. (They are selling it for 80/-) Those were good. After that I bought Escade. =)

    If the Fake Rolex can be called REPLICA , why cant they sell these perfumes? Look at these sites

    Would you call it "Chori aur seena zoori"

    Considering the skin issues rather skin havoc these perfumes can create … you are right on spot.

    Otherwise the poor man has a business going on here … :)

    Legitimacy is the best way to go on about doing things :). I have no issues with him selling or having a business, but my main focus point was the "cunningness" and the "lies" and ofcourse the "replicas" :)
