there're many brands i think
especially some french parfums, such as "Poison" means poison in english, 毒药 in chinese and "Opium" means opium in english, 鸦片 in chinese. etc.

as far as i can recall,one there was a instant noodle called white elephant,but it's not a brand name. so it won't find a place in international market. in chinese, white elephant doesn't mean anything bad, however,it means big and useless thing in english.
