MONTREAL, Oct. 31 /CNW Telbec/ - LISE WATIER COSMETIQUES INC. obtained a
judge's order from the Superior Court of Quebec granting it the rights to
seize counterfeit NEIGES(R) perfume illegally sold by unauthorised merchants
located in Quebec.
On October 29th the counterfeit NEIGES(R) perfume was seized from certain
merchants. This move aims to dissuade unscrupulous retailers and dismantle
non-authorised distribution networks.
Ms. Lise Watier, founder and co-chairman of the board of LISE WATIER
COSMETIQUES INC., is quite satisfied with this first operation: "It is
extremely important to act swiftly in such a case because, at the end of the
day, it is the consumer who is a victim of these unlawful counterfeit acts. It
is unfortunate that the woman who is a fan of NEIGES(R) might be disappointed
by this fake product -- a product whose quality or safety cannot be guaranteed
A distinctively unique creation, the NEIGES(R) perfume is sold
exclusively through authorised retailers.
The company advises that counterfeit products can only be found in
non-authorised distribution networks, and can guarantee the authenticity of
all products purchased within the company's distribution network. Authorised
networks include: L'Institut Lise Watier, The Bay, Sears, Shopper's Drug Mart,
Pharmaprix, London Drugs, Jean Coutu, Uniprix, and Brunet.
How to recognize the authentic Neiges(R) perfume
A distinctively Canadian creation, the NEIGES(R) range of perfumes is
sold exclusively through a distribution network authorised by Lise Watier
The real NEIGES(R) perfume is packaged in a crystal bottle displaying
carved snowflakes, a silver cap embossed with the Lise Watier signature and is
sold in a white embossed box wrapped in cellophane.
On the other hand, the counterfeit NEIGES(R) perfumes are sold in a
frosted bottle with a generic cap (unsigned) and are packaged in a grey box.
