A facility that turned Chinese chemicals into perfume and sold them under the disguise of popular luxury brands has been cracked down in Ho Chi Minh City, police said Friday.

The raid was carried out into the facility in an alley in Binh Tan District on Tuesday, with officers eventually confiscating 8,800 bottles of counterfeit perfume, according to the police.

The establishment owner, 36-year-old Le Thi Tu Anh, has been taken into custody for further investigation.

The fake fragrance was to be sold under famous brands such as Chanel, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace, and Gucci.

Police also seized other items including 19,000 labels and packing materials of popular perfume brands, five large containers of alcohol, two containers of fragrance, and several machines used for packaging and sealing perfume bottles.

Anh confessed to the police that the fake perfume was made from chemicals bought from China, which are later filled in bottles placed with labels of famous perfume brands.

The facility owner admitted that she also rented another house in the same alley to store ingredients and materials used for counterfeiting perfume.
