Have you recently bought a Davidoff Cool Water perfume? But is the smell a little ‘off’ and do you suspect that it’s a fake? Or are you looking to buy Cool Water and do you want to make sure you order the original Cool Water perfume? In each case it’s important to ask yourself the following 5 questions to find the difference between the Davidoff Cool Water Original VS Fake!
In this article I’ll give you the 5 exact questions you have to ask yourself in order to find out if you’ve got the original Cool Water bottle…
Davidoff Cool Water Original VS Fake
When should you be concerned if your bottle is fake? Well, here are a couple of reasons when it’s a good idea to check if your Cool Water is fake or not:
- The smell doesn’t last long – if the cologne only lasts for an hour maximum it could be that you’ve got a fake. To check this it is best to ask someone else after a couple of hours of spraying if he (or she) can smell it. Because your nose might have become insensitive to it.
- It smells chemically – if you smell long enough, virtually every perfume will start to smell chemically. But if it smells like that right from the start, you might have a fake Cool Water bottle in your hands.
- The price is too good to be true – suddenly see a bottle for more than half of the regular price in retail stores? Then chances are that it’s a fake. Unless it’s a verified seller and they’re having a Christmas clearance sale.
- You’re buying from a street seller – street vendor (especially when travelling) are notorious sellers of fake perfume. After all, you won’t be able to find them after you’ve found out that you got scammed.
If any of the previous signs concerns you – please answer the following 5 questions. Some questions are a definitive indicator of a fake bottle. And others could indicate the Davidoff Cool Water Original VS Fake.
Here they are:
#1 Is the name spelled correctly?
This one is a definitive indicator that you’ve got a fake Cool Water bottle. Even though it may seem obvious to you… I’ve recently read a couple of discussion where a person asked if his bottle was a fake.
And the name on the box was Davidofe…
Please don’t be so naive. The name on the box will always be Davidoff.
If there’s anything else written on it, then you can be sure that someone has been faking it. I repeat, if the name on the bottle is not the original Davidoff Cool Water – then please don’t buy it.
#2 How does the box look like?
The name is not the only thing that indicates whether you’ve got a fake or not. Some producers of fake perfumes spell the name correctly, but then change the way the box looks like.
Above I’ve put a picture that shows you exactly what the box should look like. If you’ve got a different box – then you’ve bought a fake bottle. Or if you haven’t bought it yet, don’t buy it!
#3 Is the smell like it should be?
Before you buy a perfume you should always test it. Spray a bit on a test stick (or your wrist) and see if the perfume smells like it should. If it’s a bit watery or muddy, then it can be fake. Or if the smell if very chemical, then it’s better to not buy it.
The difference between Davidoff Cool Water original VS fake is that the fake one:
- smells chemically right off the bat
- doesn’t last as long as the real one
- is more watery
Tip: whenever you’re flying (or at a good perfume store), try out the testers in the duty-free shops. Make a mental note of how the perfume smells and check how long it lasts on you. If you’ve come across a street seller later, you can then compare the 2 scents and see if it’s a real or fake perfume.
Smell is subjective and sometimes the formula of a perfume is changed over the years – so if the smell i slightly off it doesn’t have to mean that the Cool Water isn’t the original one. If the answers to questions 4 and 5 are also suspicious, you’re better off not buying.
#4 What’s the price (compared to regular retail prices)?
Another good indicator that you’re buying a non-original perfume is that the price is way off. If it’s a lot cheaper than the regular retail price (barring a special sale for the holidays), then chances are high that you’re buying a spin-off. After all, if it would’ve been the real Davidoff Cool water… it wouldn’t have such a low price!
#5 Is the seller reputable?
If you’ve answered the previous questions and you’re still not sure if you’ve got a real Davidoff Cool Water perfume or not. Then it’s a good idea to check the seller.
Is it a large department store that only sells other good high quality brands that has been around for a long time? Chances are high it’s a real bottle.
Or is it a small store in a foreign country that looks like they would even sell your kidneys if they could get their hands on it? Then you’re better off skipping the store.
And as for street sellers: I’d argue against them. There might be some who sell quality perfume but the majority (read 95% and higher) are selling the fake products.
