Not every Aventus clone is an alternative
Opinions are divided about the Birkholz brand. Some see it as a fresh, noble breeze in the German fragrance landscape, others as overpriced water of questionable quality.

Let me put it this way: in principle, Birkholz has made a name for itself through numerous publications and efforts and is trying to play in the upper class of perfumes. In terms of price, this is almost right, but many questions remain unanswered regarding both the external appearance (the labels are sometimes crooked) and the contents as well as the bumpy marketing.

Thus Ocean Hills is a crystal-clear Aventus clone, which, however, cannot keep up at all with the intended role model. On the one hand, the focus is more on the citric-apewy map, which unfortunately doesn't come across as valuable and in total looks a little more dull. At least one perceives the typical Aventus smoke, which not every perfumer succeeds in doing, but this alone is not enough to convince the clientele. Birch and juniper berries are also not used, but I had the impression that I sniffed a minimal trace of currant, which could also be an illusion.

In the end, it doesn't matter what the pyramid seems to give. Ocean Hills is praised by Birkholz as a fresh aquatic species with a rough sea charm and woody aromatic impact, but you can tell that he is targeting Aventus buyers.

However, they won't find enough arguments here in terms of quality, durability and/or sillage, and certainly not in terms of price, to justify Ocean Hills as an alternative. Especially as there are more interesting purchase recommendations with Explorer from Montblanc and Insurrection II Pure from Reyane Tradition. So that's why we're buying clones.
