Lise Watier seizes counterfeit Neiges perfumes

Lise Watier obtained a judge's order from the Federal Court of Canada granting it the rights to seize counterfeit Neiges perfumes illegaly sold. Attention: Assignment Editor, Business/Financial Editor, News Editor MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 12, 2005) - LISE WATIER COSMÉTIQUES INC. seizes counterfeit NEIGES® products in non-authorised distribution networks.

LISE WATIER COSMÉTIQUES INC. obtained on August 9, 2005 a judge's order from the Federal Court of Canada granting it the rights to seize counterfeit NEIGES® perfume by Lise Watier illegally sold by unauthorised merchants across Canada.

On August 12, 2005 the counterfeit NEIGES® perfume was seized from certain merchants. This move aims to dissuade unscrupulous retailers and dismantle non-authorised distribution networks.

Ms. Lise Watier, founder and president of LISE WATIER COSMÉTIQUES INC., is quite satisfied with this first operation: 'I would have never thought that we would be victims of fraud and that NEIGES® would be counterfeit 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® might be disappointed by this fake product -- a product whose quality or safety cannot be guaranteed by us.''

A distinctively unique creation, NEIGES® is sold exclusively through authorised retailers

This judge's order will enable LISE WATIER COSMÉTIQUES INC. to seize counterfeit NEIGES® products for a full year.

Here are some highlights about NEIGES® by LISE WATIER:

-Since it was launched in 1993, NEIGES® perfume has attained an unprecedented success in Canada, year after year quickly becoming an iconic Canadian perfume.

-Sparkling and shimmering like fresh-fallen snow, the NEIGES® fragrance embodies the true spirit of the brand's Canadian heritage.

-NEIGES® by Lise Watier ranks among the top-selling fragrances across Canada.
