Get off the train for good!
I got to know Creeds Aventus for the first time on the test strip. I was very convinced, but not in love. At some point, I tested him on my skin. After the beautiful fruity top note, it didn't unfold much (in my opinion at that time). At that time I blamed the natural fragrances.

A good Pafumo then of course quickly looks for alternatives and I decided on Haramains L'Aventure. He was different, of course. I wore it sometimes and had to realize that this scent does not suit me and does not fill me. From this point on I only associated the fragrance with suits.

And an even better perfumer occasionally visits a Zara shop. There I discovered the Rich Leather by random selection. "Wow, what a lovely fruity summer scent. Reminds me of something. Oh! I'll take that with me." At home, of course, the tests were carried out. "Hm, very weak and the top note is not permanent. Would be nice if the top note lasted longer."

The best perfume follows every trend and news on this page. "Oops, that Vibrant Leather everybody's talking about, he'll be back now and this time even as O de Parfuuuh". Ordered. Tested. It's getting boring. That top note again that convinces me. And then everything collapses.

And a smart perfumer like me never gives up. He has sold all previous fragrances because he was never satisfied with them. And yet he missed her again and again. So, Afnan's Supremacy Silver is bought at the Souk. "So I buy that now and keep it, Hopefully the test turns out positive."

It took five different fragrances for me to realize that Aventus and I would never become close friends. I got to know Aventus over a year ago. Over time, of course, I have learned a lot from testing. And that finally made it easier for me to understand why I don't like Aventus and Co. and why I'll never buy it again.

With all the scents it was always the case that I liked the top note extraordinarily well. Even with Supremacy. Fresh, little sweet pineapple which is accompanied by smoky woods. With this fragrance there is even an ashy note, which I never noticed with the other four fragrances. The fresh, unvoluminous fruit, together with the woods, has a summery masculine-elegant effect and unfortunately also smells of megalomania/illusionary power. But I could overlook that because of the top note.
Then the inevitable happens. The top note gradually disappears and does not appear in the heart note for too long. After the fruitiness has disappeared, only musty smoky wood with earthy notes remains. From here at the latest, the scent loses its spirit and life (although it didn't have much of it anyway). It smokes in the woods and the earth stinks. No sign of life. No dynamics. No power. No motivation.

What insight have I now gained from this?

I believe that Aventus and Co. is more of a head note seducer and I believe that its success in the market is due to the fact that many people like the head note. I have now finally understood that this fragrance with its deceptive, complacent, lifeless manner will never suit me.
I don't want to blame the lovers with that now. It is as it is: Aventus and Co. are fragrances for me that are "only" in the upper-medium range.

The time is ripe. Now I'm finally getting out. Au revoir!

"Neediest" clone
Hello everyone!

This is my first comment in this community that has saved me from many mispurchases. Therefore I will try to give back a small part and share my experiences as well.
I have a little experience with the rider and his cheap/favorable consorts.
Underneath: CDNI, Al Rasasi Zebra, L'Aventure, Insurrection pure 2 and many other fakes of the cheap category, but also Bond, Nero and the rider (in various versions...) personally. It must have turned into a hobby at some point. Maybe many recognize themselves in it!
I must admit that, in my experience, nothing can compete with the natural smell of the more expensive products. However, if you don't attach great importance to this, but only want to have as intensive Creed Aventus DNA as possible, Supremacy Silver is a good choice. The opening is much closer to the original than all the other clones I have tried (in my opinion even better than the original). As already mentioned several times here, it is a much more fruity version and the birch tar is present here, but much weaker than e.g. in CDNI.
The durability is not particularly good, but beats the current batches of Aventus in my view definitely.
So if you can make friends with the synthetic note, which somehow also has its own appeal, it is definitely a companion that you should definitely get. Now really the BEST clone. Honestly I promise! ...
For the moment ;).

An indispensable one?!
I only noticed the Supremacy Silver through the forum. The comments made me curious and since I am a fan of the Aventus and have many similar scents I have also ordered this. Have already written a few times that I find the smoky in the dry down of Aventus mega. Unfortunately, there is no fragrance without a fruity top note. Well, back to Afnan.

Flacon looks good. Nice closure and mirrored slightly transparent. spray head is also ok. At least the bottle doesn't look cheap.

The fragrance itself. When spraying on, I directly smell the black currant. Pineapple, not so much. It takes quite a while until the top note gradually distorts. Birch and musk come out easily. At first I don't think it's really smoky. This also took some time before it was ready. But unlike the older batch of L'Aventure no comparison. Much weaker and somehow without the WoW effect. It already smells quite good and comes very close to the Aventus. But I can't confirm a best copy of the Aventus. I can't judge its durability. Don't smell it on me after 10 minutes, or if it's only very light. It's not the smell but because I have the smell on it too often. I'd have to spray it on someone else so I can judge for sure. My nose must have gotten too used to it. The next day I like to smell what I wore with this scent the day before and the scent is already well gone. Take it only lightly. This is different with L'Aventure and Armaf. Here even the whole room still smells the next day. H/S not extraordinary P/L ok....
Wear it to work and exercise. I would not wear it for a special occasion or dinner because I would be annoyed if it was no longer perceptible.

Not quite Supremacy!
After using up my favorite clone Al Haramain L'aventure, I also ordered Afnan Supremacy Silver and Armaf CDNIM EdT in addition to L'aventure in early July 2021.

One thing in advance, I was so far very enthusiastic about L'aventure and am disappointed beyond measure by the current batch, which you can read here:
https://www.parfumo.de/Parfums/Al_Haramain/L_Aventure/Kommentare/146811

Back to the Supremacy Silver...just by that name "Supremacy" I imagine absolute domination among the Aventus clones. Domination in every way "fragrance, scent progression, projection, sillage and longevity". In my experience so far with the old batches of L'aventure, this one can in no way compete, except for the more pleasant top note.

Fragrance:
Compared to the other clones, this one comes a little closer to the original, since the Annanas note is clearly perceptible.

Scent progression:
A scent progression is given, but rather one that quickly flattens. At the beginning you take very nice the combination of smoked pineapple and the pleasant citrus perceived...whereby the citrus scent for me rather represents a more mature citrus than a very fresh / tangy / sour. The smoky is also perceived here from the start, which becomes more prevalent over time. I credit this fragrance very positively for that. For my nose, the smoky here but has something very slightly "ham-like". It is not at all unpleasant but perceptible to me. Until the pleasant mossy-woody base note penetrates about 1 hour.

Projection and Sillage:
Initially, the fragrance has decent projection and the sillage is also good. But once the base note has penetrated after about 1 hour, the projection and sillage flattens out significantly. After about 3-4hours, the scent is only perceptible to me from half an arm's length. Similarly, the performance of the sillage.

Durability:
The fragrance is no longer perceptible on the skin after 3-4 for me. On clothes, the fragrance lasts more than 8 hours, but you have to sniff it to perceive it.

Conclusion:
If I now make a comparison between the current batches between Supremacy Silver, L'aventure and CDNIM EdT, then the order across everything (fragrance, scent progression, projection, sillage and durability) for me looks like this:

1) CDNIM (Batch# 316667, 09714 - PD:01/2021, Made in France) - despite the reformulation!
2) Supremacy Silver (BN: 4727/20 - PD:07/20, Made in UAE) -> If the performance were better, I would see this one at #1
3) L'aventure (BH:050421011604, Made in UAE) -> With the old performance, I would see this one at #1

I will be getting Al Dur Al Maknoon by Lattafa and Montblanc Explorer soon to compare them accordingly.

Fragrant greetings,
pipmen

So, that was so: My journey through the world of fragrances does not even last that long. Two years ago, however, I started the search for "my" fragrance but finally. So I turned on the Internet, well, Aventus. What else? Not because Creed is a hot topic everywhere, but because I was interested in the olfactory profile. Well, exactly that! I like citrus and woody... But 250 bucks? Yes for God's sake?!

Alternatives were quickly Googled. And of course I had to suffer shipwreck. Insurrection II Pure was such a case... another, less disappointing: "Crush" from a Berlin dupe company (Asperias).

So, after all, treading well-trodden paths? Of course, I was already then CDNIM a term. But then I did not want to have it so simple. So: Supremacy Silver ordered. And what can I say? I felt I had arrived in the kingdom of the king. As a yardstick, by the way, served me a Creed sample here fromm Souk (thanks again!)

What can I say: There are given yes like percentages to prove similarities. I say times 90. NATURALLY the original is the decisive tick more natural, well-dosed and harmonious. But what do I care about the opinion of fragrance snobs?

It is an incredibly good blend, which one sprays there in the neck. The well-rounded opening with fresh zitrik and quite perceptible birch convinces at the first blow. Even later it becomes difficult to distinguish it from original. There is the wood, discreet floral borrowings and especially the freshness of bergamot, which dominates this krisp-funkelnde game between dark and light.

The drydown is pleasantly soft, but not weak. Woody, mossy and round.

And if that wasn't enough, the bottle is a feast for the eyes.

P.S.: I now know the CDNIM EDP and probably I would have been just as enamored then. But the throne must share the EDP with Supremacy Silver.

One of the best. Trust me: For this knowledge I had to pay some money to learn :-)

Great pineapple start, gorgeous fruity/smoky development, semi sweet ambery/mossy dry down. Probably the best Aventus clone. Elegant flask!

Wonderful perfume! It opens with a very strong fruitiness (pineapple) and a more robust touch of oak moss in the base. Best Aventus clone.

I have the Made in France version. I believe there is also a Made in UAE version which performs better.
