Extremely weak performance
Another one of my Creed comments. My brand is rather not and will not be, also because of the bad price-performance ratio. With Virgin Island Water I have one in my collection. Green Irish Tweet and Original Santal are two that I would definitely buy. Aventus has never been my case, although it has its reason for being. The brand has many fragrances that I don't think are bad at all. But: Many of them don't perform really well. Like Millesime Imperial, for example. At 200Euro+ I expect a great performance. I've tested almost all of the current bestselling creeds and I will probably test some more.
Now to the Erolfa: A rather unknown one compared to all the more successful bestsellers. Not unknown in the fragrance community of course, but he is much in the center of attention among the few. But you can also find fans of this scent from 1992, not so much in the social media, but here in the statements it is.
I'd already given him a cursory exam. As an Aquat fan I gave him a second chance with a 2ml bottle: I still don't really like him. It is pleasing, fresh and also reasonably comfortable to wear. Freshly sprayed on I find it pungent and slightly uncomfortable, which disappears after a few minutes. But at no time does it really carry me away. Aquaten simply has much better and more carefree scents, even in the low-budget range. Despite the large pyramid it is quite linear without a great flow. It has a little similarity to Millesime Imperial in style. Here, however, it goes in the aquatic direction. It also has a hairspray-like touch. Not really unpleasant, but I don't need to. It's hard to describe the fragrance of this one, because there is nothing really exciting to tell from my side.
Let's get to the two most important things about this fragrance from my point of view: First, the price. In a blind test, I wouldn't even have guessed at niche. It does not necessarily smell cheap, but I would have guessed between 20 and 80 euros. I find it pleasing, but it lacks that special something. It is fresh, linear and somehow splashes away.
Problem number 2: A great performance could save a lot of money now. For a good shelf life and a good silage you could pay a lot more, especially in the fresh area. Unfortunately, this is not the case. I'm surprised that some people set this performance so high. I even see 10.0, not for me in life. Millesime Imperial has the same game. Maybe there are again different batches like with other Creeds.
With my skin I usually get the maximum out of it and I have to say: This performance is miserable. Sillage almost not there, not even at the beginning. Extremely close to the skin, you have to stick to the sprayed area with your nose. Also from the durability a rather short fun. It lasts 3, maybe 4 hours. Nothing unusual for fresh scents, but massively overpriced and with missing Sillage.
I give 6.0, because it is not unpleasant and will not cause any problems. If I included the price/performance ratio he would get less. But everyone has to think for himself
