May your WISH come true?
We tested the marketplace with two fragrances
Everyone has a “signature scent”. But fragrances can be expensive, especially the ones by well-known fashion designers. It’s little wonder people are turning to shopping platforms like WISH to find a cheaper alternative. But if you order cheaper products, are they really authentic?
Ordering perfume from WISH
We picked a perfume by Thierry Mulger, Alien, to put to the test. When you browse this perfume on Wish, you will find that there are a number of perfumes available, but they are all different prices. It’s easy to assume that the lower priced ones are not authentic, and the higher priced ones are, but is that the case? WISH used to be famous for only offering counterfeit products, and very cheap generic products. But now they have become more famous, especially with their increase in TV advertising, they do offer the real product in some instances. The trouble is, it’s hard for the customer to tell whether the product is genuine or not. Would you know an authentic fragrance from a dupe?
How easy is it to order from Wish?
We also made an order for one of the more expensive Alien perfumes on sale, which could be an authentic one due to the higher price.
