You can, for example, go into any major chain store (who presumably has good legal advice) and buy fragrances that mimic popular designer products and even name the product they are supposed to resemble.
I know exactly what you're talking about and they say 'Like Designer Fragrance' all over to avoid the issue ... They do not imply, as the quote P1R found does, what the person is buying is the designer fragrance ... There's a big difference imo ... If that quote had said 'LIKE the newest clubs from brands such as...' rather than 'the newest clubs from brands such as:' there may not have been a case ... That little word LIKE at the beginning of the sentence changes everything, and maybe they tried that and didn't sell as many? Who knows there ... When you're going to walk that close to the edge, you better be right on with your wording, imo, and they missed the word 'like' at the beginning of the quote from what I've seen.
