About 9 or 10 months ago i was testing the various men's fragrences in the cosmetics section of Kmart, when i came accross Stitch No18. Stitch is known for making a wide array of fakes from Hugo Boss, right through to the most expensive brands. At a cost of $9.99 per 75ml bottle, the colognes are a fraction of the price of any real cologne, and smells near exactly the same.
The bottle is red in colour, with a basic stitch design, as with the majority of stitch fakes to my knowledge.
You may say, "but what are the differences?", well of course we know spending $85 on a product will give you better quality, and cologne is no different. The No18 Stitch cologne (Joop fake) has a strong smell for approximately 1 - 2hrs, and up to 5 hrs, the smell is rather suttle. Comments i've had from friends have all been on the line of "is that joop?", "you smell soooo nice" as well as comments asking where i got it from and how much.
Although the smell doesn't last as long as the real Joop, the fake does last very well and at a price of $9.99 Australian it's well worth every cent. So the next time you buy men's cologne, whether for your self, or for your other half, try Stitch copies, it'll be well worth it.
