The Ras Al Khaimah Department of Economic Development officials confiscated 119,960 fake perfume bottles estimated to be worth Dh33 million.

Khaleej Times, citing authorities, reported that the perfume bottles were of 18 fake international brands.

More than 25,000 bottles on the other hand were of unknown brands.

“More investigations are to be carried out to identify the owners of the unidentified brands. The massive haul of counterfeits, the biggest in the country, was found in a farm at Shamal area to the north of the emirate,” an official said.

Reports said the controversial farm has become a warehouse for fake perfume products.

“We were tipped off about a farm stocking fake perfumes. A search team was formed to collect and verify all information and evidence over one week,” the RAK official said.

Asian owners of the farm are now in police custody. The products will be destroyed immediately.

“The seized items included products with fake trademarks of international brands, such as Mercedes, Cartier, Van Cleef, Chaumet, Louis Vuitton, Cavallo, Hager Whiten, Saps and Apple,” RAK official added.

Establishments found selling counterfeit items may be forced to close if caught more than once.
