Admittedly, I love this fragrance! When I had a sprayer of Aventus sprayed on my forearm last year and heard this scent DNA for the first time, I experienced an olfactory wow experience. I'd never smelled anything like it before. Even the next morning after the shower he was still clearly perceptible. The fragrance strip, which I had separately given to me, was carefully packed in a zip bag so that I could sniff it every now and then for the following days.
Perfume is an art form, as Jeremy likes to repeat more often. This of course justifies horrendous prices, which I am not prepared to pay, but I am too pragmatic. It was not worth 270€ per 100ml to me and it is still not today!
So I went looking for clones that smell similar. It wasn't about finding an exact clan. Cause who knows, I might even like a clone better. I liked almost every clone. Compared to the original in my memory there were more fruity and smokier ones. Unfortunately none lasted as long as the original.
A few months and a few clones later I missed the incredible durability of the Original Creed Aventus. Thanks to the great invention of the souk, I ordered a bottling. I sprayed this again on my forearm and with it the disappointment began...
This batch of C4218G11 had a shelf life of less than 3 hours on my skin! Have I been kidded
*t? Another bottling ordered from another Parfumo, this time Batch C4218D01. That's the kind of disappointment! On my skin a shelf life of less than 3 hours, on paper with luck 5 hours. Even my dupes perform better!
Have I been verar
*t by two perfumos? I think that's out of the question! Rather Creed lets himself be led by greed and thinks he has to sell stretched goods.
Creed was finally through with that for me! Who offers such an overpriced product and does not pay attention to deliver constant quality despite the increased prices, I don't buy anything from. Long live the free market and I continue to pay only a tenth for a clone! Even if I always have a travel atomizer with me and have to spray every few hours. I have the choice whether I want to fragrance smoky-heavy or fruity-fresh and am happy to be able to wear this masculine fragrance on any occasion.
Even if some Creed fanboys tear up all Aventus clones below 100€ per 100ml, I don't smell any difference in quality. I remember the nice lady in the perfumery who talked about the continuously rising prices of Aventus bottles in the past and how surprised she was that this fragrance was bought unchanged.
The fragrance has been described countless times, so I spare myself and you a deeper description of the fragrance. I was more interested in the durability of this commentary and, as with all fragrances, I evaluate it very objectively according to the following scheme: For every two hours of perceptibility of two splashes on paper, there is one point, up to 10 hours. From then on there will be one point per four hours. 9 or 10 will only reach those who survive a shower. There you go. Since the older batches last much longer than the current ones, there is a consolation point.
Sincerely, your hunting vegetables!
