Very helpful Review
"So the red horse just turned around and swatted the fly with his tail."
(hideous song, but matching the bottle)
Okay, here we go:
Does anyone else have energy to deal with Aventus-Dupe's? No? I don't really either and you don't have to be afraid, the commentary will quickly go in a different direction, but at certain moments you can't help but make references to the Allstar. First of all I can say that no fragrance twin ever made it into the sacred halls of my perfume cabinet, this one did. You want to know why that is? Then read
First of all it must be mentioned that this Armaf belongs to the niche collection of the fragrance house, which made me curious right away!
The arrival (the exterior):
I joyfully open the package and what I get to see delighted and surprised me even more. A giant flacon, which also seemed to be very well packed. At the beginning, our horse is still under a round plastic head, which is supposed to offer additional protection. Also the bottle itself is, let me put it carefully, kitschy and beautiful. It is more valuable than I would have expected from the pictures. I've heard that the material is supposed to give way after a while and become fragile - especially the horse's head - but I can't confirm that yet. Only the spray head is not so horny, because very little comes out and you feel that you have to spray it often. Maybe a trick so that it gets empty quickly ?
The test (the inside):
I had tested it once and found it good and waited until I could get it for a good price on the WWW, so I can look back on several tests and tell you about them. In my opinion we are dealing with a fresh smoky scent in general. I would not want to call it sweet-spicy, as you can see above. Only the vanilla has a slightly sweet touch, but here we are far away from what we understand by fresh scents. But let's start with the top note. Here we have the biggest overlap with the Aventus. We have the fruity pineapple and subtle berry chords. But the smoky notes quickly appear, although they seem quite controlled. Those who think here of an Interlude, be reassured, the smoke is rather a nice, soft veil of smoke. It can also be said here that the similarity to the Creed scent cannot be denied. BUT THEN the vanilla conquers the field bit by bit and one can say it is an Aventus with vanilla vibe. However, the vanilla is not overly dominant and only brings the minimal sweetness already mentioned. From then on the scent changes between the main chords fruit, vanilla, smoke. Whereby it is to be noted that at some point the fruit is completely gone. What remains for a long time is a slightly smoked vanilla, which is surrounded by a nice graphite note. This makes the fragrance appear slightly tart, fresh (in its own way), sweet and distinctive.
The endurance (the exterior II):
Joa, durability and sillage are all right I'd say. With me it lasts about 7 hours with four spray bursts and my environment perceives it for at least two hours. So if you are looking for a Dupe that is more durable than the Aventus, you will find a similar quality here. Whereby the original lasts even longer with me. In summary reason solid H and S, which are offered here.
After that (conclusion):
We're dealing with more than just a dupe here. The "red horse" is suitable for everyone who is basically satisfied with the Aventus basic DNA, but would like to see it in other facets. Especially fans of vanilla scents could get their money's worth here, as this scent lasts almost the entire fragrance process. There is very little wrong with the price, considering that 100ml are available for less than 50 Euro. An eye-catcher on the shelf is the fragrance on top of that. But I would not recommend to buy it if one is looking for a direct Aventus twin, as then it is better to choose L'Aventure. For me, however, the best horse in the house of Armaf!
