Is it legal to duplicate a designer brand perfume? Yes, it is perfectly legal to duplicate a designer fragrance just as long as the fragrance oils that are being sold have a disclaimer stating they are not the originals. That disclaimer is visible on the fragrance collection pages of this website. When a designer scent is created by the manufacturer, only the name and packaging are trademarks but not the scent. A Supreme Court ruled that perfumes can not be trademarked because the ingredients in them are derived from nature. Therefore, the ruling states you can not patent a scent of nature. Ex. apple, bergamot, vetiver, musk, iris, etc. How are your perfume oils duplicated? The technique is a reverse engineering process. A gas chromatography is used to separate all the different components of a fragrance. The fragrance is then rebuilt from scratch. Since each raw material is a blend of chemicals, a good knowledge of their makeup is required in order to make an acceptable match. Modern equipment, such as a mass spectrometer, helps tremendously, giving a positive identification of each chemical. The perfumer's task is to take all the information and reconstitute the target. fragrance. Because of the wide variety of raw material manufacturers use around the world, it is very unlikely that you would have the exact same ingredients as in the original fragrance making a perfect duplication impossible. The perfumer will get as close as possible to recreate the olfactive illusion of the target..
