A (Mostly) Great Scent for a Great Value
You know when you are looking for a new car and just want a vehicle with the same horsepower and similar leather seats as your old one, but the sticker price is too expensive? Instead, you pick a car with similar performance, but with a different color, less roomy, and affordable.

Creed's Aventus Eau de Parfum is the new car. Armaf’s Club De Nuit Intense Man EdP is the affordable car.

However, I will not review CDNIM as how it compares to Creed Aventus. Instead, I will review it based on its own merits.
----

The opening smell is the major point of critique. The notes are Apple, Pineapple, lemon, bergamot, and black currant. That combination should come with the feeling of relaxing on an island, a beach, or a boat while wearing casual clothes or pajamas.

Instead, the lemon stands out in the worst way possible — it has a synthetic smell that makes me think of Windex or Pledge with a minuscule hint of pineapple. Some people may like it (or even love it), but I dislike it. If the opening was tamer with a herbal note such as lavender, it would become amazing.

However, when one waits for about 15-20 minutes, the lemon aspect dies down, and the scent becomes amazing. The jasmine, rose, and birch heart notes combined with the base notes of musk and patchouli combine to form a spectacular smoky and masculine fragrance that truly shines without being overwhelming.

----

Also, I must discuss the bottle. Normally, I give a point for having a black bottle, because it blocks light that can affect the fragrance. However the plastic is peeling off, and showing signs of wear and tear, something I don't see with any other bottles I currently own.

Also, the logo tag was unglued, and the chain connecting the logo tag to the bottle actually broke.

Not helping is that the CDNIM bottle may be the tackiest bottle I own. I ridiculed the bottle of 360° Red for Men for looking like a vibrator, and I would display that bottle over this.

----

In terms of performance, CDNIM is exceptionally amazing.

The fragrance can easily last throughout the day, and the smell has lasted on me personally beyond 24 hours. That is amazing longevity, even for an EdP.

The fragrance also projects reasonably well. People will not smell you as soon as you enter a room. However, if you walk by someone on the street, or stay in one spot for a decent amount of time, someone will discover the fragrance.

This combination makes CDNIM an excellent, versatile fragrance that can work in any setting, whether it is at the office (please limit the sprays to two at most), lounging at home, an evening out with friends at a bar or club, or on a date with a significant other or spouse. While the fragrance works best in the late spring or summer, it is strong enough to hold in the winter and can be used as a year-round fragrance.

----

Overall, despite the contentious opening (which can be a deal-breaker for some people) and the notoriously cheap bottle, CDNIM provides outstanding value as the heart and base notes provide an amazing fragrance that is versatile, durable, and usable throughout the year. That is difficult to find with affordable fragrances.

Fruit in green tea?
After Creed Aventus is on everyone's lips and is considered THE compliment getter par excellence, I had to have it. Since you can not test Creed just like that at Doulgas around the corner and a blind buy of 400 € just seems idiotic to me (so much costs almost my whole collection :-) - I have decided for a middle ground with Club de Nuit Intense Man - Eau de Parfüm.

Fragrance:
How do you feel when you wear *Club de Nuit - Eau de Parfum*?
- I feel fruity and fresh - like sitting in a fruit basket. The smoke I personally perceive more like a kind of green tea (tart-dry, relaxing note). Initially, the fruit basket is quite dominant, but never unpleasant, as some describe with the eau de toilette. The often-criticized opening on the standard variant made me buy the smoother eau de parfum variant. Surely a good decision.

When do I wear *Club de Nuit - Eau de Parfum* the most?
- When I want to smell fruity-fresh. But rather in the spare time, sometimes even during sports. In general, I would prefer the from spring to the end of summer.

How can you compare *Club de Nuit - Eau de Parfum* with other summer fragrances?
- John Varvatos - Artisan Pure: also super fresh, but much more lemon - for me from 30 degrees and white clothes
- Abercrombie & Fitch - First Instinct: this one smells very yummy like melon and somehow more teen vibe than Club de Nuit.
- Montblanc - Legend Spirit: Goes basically at the beginning for me in the same direction, because grapefruit. The smoke note from the Club de Nuit, makes it forh me more masculine and relaxing. The Lgend Spirit is more sporty.

SILLAGE / DURABILITY:
- The sillage is I think very good.
- The durability is very good on my skin.

FLAcon:
- The 150ml bottle is made of heavy black glass. Good in itself, but I do not associate the fragrance with the bottle.

PRICE / PERFORMANCE:
- I bought the 150ml variant for just under 55€. Price / performance compared to Creed Aventus of course NoBrainer.

CONCLUSION:
Do not know Creed Aventus, but Club de Nuit - Eau de Parfum is in itself a standout creation of smoky pineapple, which you can wear from spring to the end of summer (or when going out) super.

Aventus is it you?
Have bought the perfume version of cdinm.

Batch 2020 he smells from the 1 minute after aventus, very fruity the fruits are good raus zuriechen, with some smoke.

Shelf life about 10Std

I'm compared to the edt :No lemon much less smoke, worse shelf life BUT for it much rounder(Most will prefer this edp version)
Is a good fragrance, but for me the edt version is clearly better because I celebrate the pungent lemon, which subsequently passes into extremely strong smoke S/Durability was significantly longer /Stärker with my Edt. It was not uncommon that the scent has held 36std on the skin. (But it was also an extremely good batch)

Why still buy Aventus ?
What else can I say about CdN ? The best Aventus clone on the market for an unbeatable price and clearly there are differences in the scent ... but 99% of the people will not be able to determine
I have then years ago during my training Aventus smelled that must have been so 2015/16 . A dentist wore this and ran past us while we were laying network cables in the surgery . I smell this fragrance and think only WOW how cool smells because .... A short time later I was in his office and on the cabinet was the bottle of Aventus. Arrived at home I immediately looked for it and after I saw the prices immediately buried any hope to own the fragrance 250-300 € WTF ?

Anyway, years have passed and I was looking for a clone because I have this fragrance DNA of the smoky apple / pineapple just do not get out of my head. And now Armaf comes with their Club de Nuit line around the corner I own the Limited Parfum Edition which is supposed to be the smokiest and longest lasting. Unfortunately, there is not here at Parfumo so I write this review under the normal perfume.
And yes the scent smells pretty identical to Aventus and has a brutal durability. The EDT is probably the freshest Riechen but not quite as long hold direction perfume it will then always smoky and Longer durable The Limited Edition Holds the whole day and comes with little spraying out. The projection is also pretty good.
Alone The Opening is something that needs getting used to just smells like toilet stone ... But it does not bother me because after a few minutes the fruity smoky of Aventus returns. and the Drydown is anyway to kneel down
What else can I say who likes Aventus buys the EDP version of CdN and saves so cash ... I think we must not throw the companies with money if you think about how cheap perfumes are produced it is an outrage how expensive they are sometimes sold! Yes the ingredients are higher quality ok but if we have companies like Armaf that can make the same fragrances for a third of the price why spend so much money on the original? I am not talking about cheap clones that cost 30 € and smell like a chemical cocktail. A good fragrance can cost 100 € but not more ...

A duet of fruit and smoke
Dear perfume enthusiasts,

today is about Club de Nuit Intense Man edP, the allegedly better version of the edT and thus the best dupe to the original by Creed.
CDNIM starts off strongly citrusy-synthetic and reminiscent of bathroom cleaners. It's not exactly pleasant, but wait and see, because what follows is really good. After 10-15 minutes, the citrus settles a bit, the fruity pineapple emerges in tandem with the tart currant. The birch gradually delivers more smoke in complement. This is the moment I like best, as I really appreciate this duet of fruit and smoke. The smoky note is just perfect with the tart fruit, leather like Cedrat Boise I invented on the other hand as a little too unbalanced.
In the base, earthy patchouli stands out perceptibly, but not so that it would significantly shape the fragrance character.
On the whole, CDNIM is close to Aventus, except for the opening. I like! The edT, by the way, I do not know, so I can not provide a comparison here.

As with Milestone and Sillage, the durability is again lousy. I can explain the high ratings in terms of durability only so that the fragrances have all once held significantly longer, but have been reformulated.
From Intense Man edP I get a maximum of six hours of fragrance experience with generous application, I should not still help with ISO-E. Here it could have been quiet a little more.
The sillage is not overwhelming, but can be seen just within the first two hours. The fragrance goes with 8 spritzes even after two hours clearly through the medical masks and already provided several times for proper compliments (even from strangers). Overall, this fragrance leads in terms of compliments also currently in my collection.
The bottle is fine, nothing more. Too bad I find that this is not visible. The sprayer I feel, as with the other Armafs, as mau.
Well, for that the fragrance is not exactly expensive and when I look at Aventus so, I would reach any time to Armafs clone, because what Creed so deliver lately, is beyond a good price-performance ratio. What is offered here for the narrow purse, can be quite buy and wear. Therefore, I would recommend this fragrance to anyone who can do with Aventus what, but is not ready to pay so much money for it.

As always, thanks for reading!

Who loves the famous Creed Aventus, must also have this fragrance at home! For me, it is more than just a brilliant dupe!

Aventus is the elegant, serious big brother of CDNIM! Perfect for business meetings, business lunch, job interview or a hot summer day!

CDNIM is the sassy little brother that wants to stand out at all costs. For me, this fragrance screams BOOM BOOM BOOM...a perfect clubbing fragrance, as the name suggests.

Since you can not go wrong, certainly not for the price!

Comparison to a 10th Year Anniversary Edition Batch
CDNIM EDP I've had for a while now, I don't know the original EDT. I bought it along with Sillage as a blind buy because they are supposedly so good at copying Creed. Although me from the description of the SMW Dupe has appealed much more it is CDNIM, to which I am currently totally addicted.

The other day I had the opportunity to compare it to the fragrance it's obviously trying to copy. Both on the skin and on paper. Funnily enough, the Creed lasts longer with me on the skin than on the test strip, otherwise that's often the other way around.

Right away, CDNIM holds in any case much longer than what came out of the 10th Year Anniversary Edition bottle of Creed. Whether on the sheet or the skin.

The top note is very citrusy, more yellow, more acidic, more biting than Aventus. That's not necessarily unpleasant, it's just not the most natural lemon in the world.

That settles down pretty quickly, though, then becomes smokier and spicier. After half an hour, the whole goes much more in the direction of pineapple.

The transitions of the fragrance notes are very soft here in my opinion. At the base remains even 8h - 10h later still a smoky-elegant, sandy-spicy woody note.

I see at the end out always an elegant gentleman in a tuxedo (in the truest sense) before me, who wanders from dune to dune through the sand into the sunset.
Compared to the original, I find this one wilder, more unbridled, less refined, though also less smooth and more animalic. A great fragrance. In any case blind-buy-worthy.

The Honda Accord of fragrance - it's not expensive, but it'll work day after day
I had to try this one, after seeing all the hype on social media. I have a sample of Aventus from Creed, so I was curious to compare the two. They are not the same, but that doesn't mean this is junk.

Upon first spray, it smells like I'm being stabbed in the face with lemon drop candies. That's how aggressive the synth lemon is. Luckily, it only lasts a couple minutes.

After the opening assault fades, it becomes very pleasant. I get the heart notes faintly, and only for a bit, before the base shines through. Projection is arm's length after the opening, lasting most of the day and fading nice and linearly. I get ambroxan, a hint of vanilla, and musk in the dry down.

I find it pleasant and easy to wear. I'll likely wear to the office on days I don't have client meetings or a need for a more refined frag. At the price point, it's going to be an easy reach in the morning over more expensive office-safe frags.

*Follow up a few days after testing. The smell of lemon has impregnated everything this juice touched, and won't leave. skin, watchstraps, clothes, even the floor around where I sprayed continues to reek of lemon, even after repeated applications of other heavier fragrances. The more it clings to my nose day after day, the less I'm enjoying it. Fragrances should be rather fleeting, not permanent like a tattoo.

Overrated cheap fragrance
When I bought CDN, I targeted it to have something similar to Aventus.
As I have Aventus now in my collection, I would like to be crystal clear regarding CDN: it has NOTHING from Aventus.

CDN it's a citrus, fresh and very synthetic fragrance. There is no complexity in it, at all.

The funny thing is that CDN is replicating the heart notes of Aventus in a linear way. The heart notes of Aventus are Birch, Patchouli, Moroccan Jasmine and Rose. The heart notes of CDN are smelling the heart notes of Aventus but without any possibility to understand the notes. It's smells a "kind of Aventus" and that's it. It's smells the average fragrance you can buy at your supermarket.

Very bad feedback from women, especially my wife.

For me it's not a clone and cannot be compared.

2 good things:

- The price
- The performance (ridiculously long)

Lemon - Top to Bottom
I have 12/2019 150ml EDP version.

It starts very citrus, I don't think it's „harsh” or bad, tbh I really enjoy lemon smell and it doesn't smell like an „toilet air fresher” or what ppl say, I'd say it's a kindddaa „natural smell” (the lemon, to be clear, per total it's a quite synthetic fragrance). Anw, I have to admit, in the first 10 minutes you can get only LEMON/bergamot with smth fruity (probably Black Currant and Pineapple, I don't detect any apple). Anyways the opening is very fresh, nice from my pov.

After that it's more fruity, a little little smoky. The strong smell of lemon is diminished, you can still feel the citrus tone, but it's ok in combination with the flowery-fruity vibe blended with a woody smell.

The dry-down is nice. It is kinda smoky (smoky birch with ambergris and warm cuz of vanilla), still with the citrus vibe. I can smeel citrus notes from the beginning to the final, but the main notes are ambergris and birch in the dry-down.

It's a versatile fragrance, could be worn everywhere, anytime. I'd wear this more in warm days rather than colder ones.

The performance... hmm, well, it's not weak, but strong neither. It last a quite long on my skin, I sprayed around 14:30 and when I got home I took a shower ~22:00, after I rubbed my neck with my hands, I could smell the fragrance on my palms. (I used 5 spritz)
On clothes remain for more than 24h, but you can smell it only if you put your nose in the t-shirt/jacket...

The projection it's moderate I'd say, ~1meter, but when the wind blows, the trail is bigger than 1.5m (the sillage). The smell in the air is not strong, it won't hit you HARD, it's just there, a nice scent which won't offend anybody. It will project for like 2 hours maybe.

THIS IS A REVIEW FOR 150ML EDP BOTTLE
I'd say it's a 8/10

Scent: 9/10
Longevity: 8/10
Projection: 7/10
Bottle: 9/10 (fingerprint, but still nice, I like it. The cap goes off so f* hard xd)
Price: 8/10 (I paid ≈41€ for 150ml)

I haven't smelled CA, so I can't compare.

This is my first review :) This is my opinion about the perfume and how it smells on my skin, also I'm kinda new in „perfumes world” haha
