Question Nakhla - is this Genuine or Fake ?

Hello, please help me to find out whether is the tobacco i bought original nakhla tobacco, or is it some crappy fake.
Firstly, i have to say, that my tobacco was bought in Egypt. I bought it during my holiday there. It was quite cheap, about 50 cents for one 50gram box. I was at various locations (about 6 or 7) and every offered me for this price and every box was packed the same.

Ok, so how does the package looks like ? I am describing Peach flavour.
[LIST=1][*]layer - normal orange box, with some picture of peaches, nakhla logo, text sayin "peach flavour", some arabian text[*]inside the box - hard hermetically closed plastic, with white text texture, saying "nakhla tobacco"[*]a bit softer plastic (it's not kitchen foild - it's harder then, but softer then the upper)[*]tobacco[/LIST]Okay, and my reason of thinking, why is it fake ? There's no celofain on the top of the box, like on cigarettes, neither red strip, to put down it easily. Some friends said me, that's because, it's not export tobacco, but egyptian for egypt (not to be put abroad). But anyway, all other nakhla i had was packed differently. (Foil - Box - Hard Foil with picture of flavour - Foil - Tobacco).

I can't determine it by taste, cause i am kind of hookah beginner and haven't smoked so much yet.
I will add detailed photos later, but my camera is out of batteries, so plz be patient, and thanx for help.

I think red stripe is to show its export quality, i picked up some flavours from egpyt and didnt have the red stripe around it either or celofain

For me also, but i bought also El Hennawy.
It was exactly same packed, but instead of nakhla tobacco, on the plastic it is writen Henawy tobacco. That's making me nervous.

How is Nakhla Peach supposed to smell ? Mine smells exactly like peaches, but when i am inhaling its aroma, it's like parfume or i dunno. { mean inhaling from box, not smoking it }

As Nakhla is one of the cheaper brands, I don't understand why anyone would bother making counterfeits for it anyway - why not counterfeit a more expensive brand?

That's nak might be just a older box, who knows but if it taste great, then who cares if its fake. Its nothing like fake AF first off AF was horrible to start with but the fake was just nasty.

Madwolf has an El Henaway video up. In it, he says that the EH is so similar to Nakhla, that he wonders if it's made by the same manufacturer.
