This one is an ok clone
But Explorer is better in my opinion. CDNIM has a very strong lemon opening that lasts a good 1/2 hour, and it’s not a good one. I agree it’s similar to lemon pledge on the opening. When the opening fades however it’s a decent scent that lasts a good 6-8 hours. I think it’d be more suitable for a cigarette smoker, as the resonance is strong, but you can tell it ISN’T Aventus. Explorer has more of a high quality aroma to it, and it smells like the Aventus dry down from the start. CDNIM is not a bad scent, there’s just better clones out there. If you’re going for Armaf, I prefer Le Parfait, not because it’s more similar to Aventus, but because it smells more high quality.
