Cologne/Perfume from Chemist Warehouse

Has anyone noticed any problems with their colognes or perfumes from chemists such as Chemist Warehouse and Priceline?
I mainly use Aqua and a couple of other colognes such as Ralph Black and CK Euphoria, bought from Chemist Warehouse. What I've noticed is that these colognes don't seem to last for as long as most reviews say they should. In fact, those around me can barely smell it a couple of hours in - controlling for variables; no sweating, in many different situations, small distances. This is consistant over 3 bottles of Aqua. I thought this might have been normal due to individual differences, but I've sampled the same colognes from Sephora while the gf is off looking at make-up, and the contrast is staggering. I, and those around me, could smell it strongly hours later, and also lasted days on my clothes.
Is this Chemist Warehouse selling an inferior product, or the also very possible, Sephora using an extra-concentrated product for their samples?
I still have a largely unfinished bottles of cologne in my drawer, and don't feel rich enough to buy duplicates to run a comparison at the moment. Hoping someone else has insight.
