Default Al Fakher watermelon, El Fakher fake.

Sup guys. The other day me and my friends decided to go to an Persian grocery round my corner which sell hookahs etc. We bought watermelon flavour, but it wasn't until we got home that we realised it was fake, mainly to do with the fact that it was spelt 'El Fakher.'

Suprisingly, I could not wait to smoke it, it smelt amaaaaaaziiiiiinnnggggggg and really genuine.
The taste also, when you blow out it leaves a really really distinctive taste of watermelon, but more of the sour sweet watermelon.

We bough 250 grams for 7 pounds (14 dollars) but now we're going to buy some genuine Al Fakher watermelon, anyone advise me whether the AF watermelon one is good?
Peace, G.

Was the old packaging or new packaging? if outside says "Al Fakher" and "El fakhir" or whatever it is old packaging but it is really.

DOes it say El Fakher outside? Then I think it is fake. But hey...If it smoke and tastes good...Who cares if its fake :P lol

But of course if you spent more than the real al fakher, then you've got a prob lol

El Fakher is a fake of Al Fakher, but a good one! It doesnt taste bad or something like that ... its just great! (better than Nakhla e.g.)
The real al fakher watermelon tastes also great, one of the best watermelon tobaccos ive ever smoked.

I haven't seen any fake Al Fakher in person, but many have reported it. The real AF Watermelon is the best readily available watermelon shisha, hands down.

I guess it's not a big deal it being fake, seeing that it tastes good.

i dont know, why they sell it as a fake
the el fakher (fake) is a really good tobacco - it smells great and tastes even good!
el fakher could be a legal own shisha company

Nut Case

its a nut shop.. because the shisha stuff is not their main thing so not many ppl know about it that's why their prices are good

ye I payed £5.50 here for 40 gr. Sometimes when I smoke my shisha there is a taste of burning, but like very horrible taste of it. Is it to do with the fact that I only use one sheet of foil?

You probably put too many coals or your packing too high. Pack less and double foil and you will be fine ^_^

i ever let 0.5 or 1 cm difference between the foil and the tobacco and coal depends on tobacco (for habibi ab bit less than e.g. for af)

natural coal is the best you can use!

but if you want to use QL coal, try three kings, they are nearly tasteless and easy to light.
