Back in June of 2015, YG Entertainment's cosmetic brand, 'moonshot', launched the 'GD Eau De Toilette', or the G-Dragon perfume. The product is a great hit, especially in China, and as the popularity of the perfume continued to rise, a fake version has been deceiving customers.
'moonshot' responded to the issue by posting a warning on their official website that clarifies the differences between the original and the fake 'GD Eau De Toilette'.
According to 'moonshot', the fake perfume has a yellowy color, and the scent also tends to change into a sour odor with time. In addition, the product description of the fake perfume contains typos, and the fake does not have the original brand mark found at the top of the box. The interior of the perfume cap also differs as the original does not have multiple rings on its surface.
The warning also states that "Being a cosmetic product that comes in contact with one's skin, there can be severe side effects when cheap ingredients are used. The recently implemented warning differentiating the original from the fake should serve as an effective aid for customers. "
