In the market. Of course not though I imagine there will be something in a bottle with a good looking label.

In the shops all brands are available at slightly lower prices than you would pay in the UK ( or the peninsula)

Think you should ask any taxi driver to take you to Bellavista,

Its a huge modern mall in the Spanish part of Playa Del Ingles ,You will find what you want there and the label and contents will most proberly match.

Taxi fare is about 3 Euro, A walk from the Jumbo center will only take 20 mins.

I am sorry but unless they have built a lot since the first week in January Bellavista isn't huge and it doesn't have the selection you would get in the Yumbo Centrum.

If you want knock off forgeries you have to go to the markets but the Yumbo has at least three big perfume shops and there are more in the Cita and the Kasbah.

Genuine but with a better market spread is in Vecindario where there is a large Carrefour plus some speecialist shops.

You will not get the type of fakes you see in Turkey. For example there are Louis Vuitton style prints on bags but these are not aiming to be LV copies - just similar style in their own right.

You'll see "lookalikes" but not complete copies or forgeries to not dress it up as that's what they are.
