The scent immediately captures my imagination..
I see a more mature gentleman, but still in his prime. He's dining in a grand setting at the local Greek restaurant. He's been dining there for decades. A stocky, tanned gentleman. Dark, dyed back, full hair, a moustache that would make even Magnum envious. He wears a summery shirt, his arms slightly rolled up to present the stainless steel Submariner. He wears it very open-heartedly to reveal his full masculine chest hair. Bedded on it, a gold chain, which he acquired from his first contractor salary in self-employment, on a holiday in Turkey.

His presence is felt throughout the restaurant. He extends it by creating the space he needs with his arms on the corner seat backrest to give his stories the expression you need. His deep bass-heavy voice gently shakes the whole restaurant. His laughter is heartily loud, but determined and with a stern undertone. He doesn't mind if third parties in the restaurant are annoyed by his appearance. Everyone at the table listens to him attentively. He is the alpha in this round.

The submissive restaurant chef is of course on a first-name basis and is addressed from the table throughout the room: "Philippos, make us another round of ouzo."

The young daughter of the boss comes to the table to refill the glass. Teasingly he leans over to her and shoves a 20 in her apron. With a wink he says goodbye, rewards himself with a glance at the pretty waitress leaving and continues his monologue afterwards.

His narcissistic, impulsive nature has robbed him of his wife, but as a builder he has gotten to where he is now. He has no sense of guilt, at least not towards the German state. He pays enough taxes as it is. Sometime is good!

He is loyal to his employees. He treats them well. If you do your job well, you get a good slap on the back. The pain that this causes is gladly accepted, as this is regarded throughout the company as an honourable distinction.

Those who do not do their work will feel the effects of this. He can also sometimes become louder and he can sometimes strike his fist a little more energetically on the table to give more expression to his displeasure.

After the meal and a few more ouzos, he orders 2 espressos for himself in the usual way, which are of course served one after the other. After a sip from the first cup, which disappears in his hand because of his toilet lid like hands, a slightly derogatory statement with a clearing entrance may not be missing in the round. "you'd think they were trying to sell me Lavazza again

Still at the table he lights his cigar for an exaggeratedly long time until there is a more than stable embers, before he boldly pushes the table forward half a meter with a jerk and sets off in slow motion to enrich the terrace with his aura and masculine Nero scent.

Greened fruit seniors
Let's get one thing straight: I don't know Creed's Aventus. So I can't make a direct comparison. However, after Rasasi's clone, Nero was the second attempt with this DNA. Mazzolari did a much better job of delivering the DNA that I feel. Much less, not to say no smoke, but a rather scratchy synthetic pineapple, embedded in freshness and some green ingredient that I find unpleasantly old-fashioned. Unfortunately, I don't know for sure if it is the birch tree.
I like the fragrance in and of itself, but I just don't feel old enough to wear it. That may be because I don't really like to smell like green stuff, especially not if it has a certain retro charm, as I said before.
The quality seems to me to be rather too low for the called price, which is not only reflected in the fragrance itself, but also in the windy bottle including cap and velvet box.

In summary, for me a clear one: you can do it, but you don't have to. Probably that's why I will probably refrain from further experiments concerning Aventus and his partly hunchbacked children...

Aventus clone, yes
But an imitation that surpasses the original. Very energetic positive scent, subtle smoke, fresh fruit and also the performance is really better than the current Aventusbatches.

I think the Mazzolari's also noticed that the fragrance has succeeded. They raised the prices drastically. I bought it in their boutique in Milan, the 100 ml bottle for 100 Euro, now it costs 130 Euro and in Germany 175 Euro.

I would put Nero ahead of Aventus any day

Aventus? Who is Aventus?
Great Italian with complimentary guarantee. Durability and silage better than the current Aventus Batch. Also available in the Essenza in Olio version, which I haven't been allowed to test yet. Unfortunately, this great fragrance seems to have a niche existence until now

Comparison
With this perfume probably only a comparison to the great Aventus is possible. Why not, Nero wants to be an Aventus, and in my opinion, almost is. The comparison here is based on a very new batch of Aventus, so enormously fruity and unfortunately hardly smoky and with no particularly good shelf life.

I find the top note of Nero to be clearly more animal, but this citric component runs through the entire fragrance but decreases significantly.
Nero then becomes very, very similar to his role model. I think that 95% of all people here would not notice any difference.
Personally, I find Nero a little less finely tuned, a little more aggressive and overall a nuance more fruity than the current Aventus batches. Smokiness I perceive only extremely minimally.

In terms of durability it is on my skin after about 3.5 hours close to the skin and after 5-6 hours only very slightly perceptible,
so he scores slightly better than his great role model.

All in all, if Creed doesn't quickly return to his old strength, I would absolutely recommend Nero. An amateur perfumer will never know the difference.

If Aventus should ever be sold out...
...then this candidate here is a truly worthy replacement!
In my opinion, he comes closest to the "King" without Emperor Nero having to reinvent the clothes.
On the contrary, with Nero I have for the first time the feeling that the fragrance wants to be a clon! And he accomplishes this task like no other!

The scent:

Starts almost identical to Aventus (depending on the batch more or less fruity), is a bit smokier compared to my batch and is a bit more powdery/ vanilla in the base than Aventus!
Exactly there we would be also already with the grain where in my opinion Aventus the nose before has. The more fruity Drydown I simply like better than the more powdery one from Nero!
In summer I would therefore always prefer Aventus...spring makes itself the somewhat softer base of the Nero certainly better...but there I have other alternatives.
But that we understand each other correctly...this is really whining on a high level!!

Conclusion:

Nero of Mazzolari can do something...much more than the so-called cheap Dupes ala L´Aventue etc....he never seems cheap or easy...he snakes close to his role model! Class!

But as long as I get my Aventus at a cheaper price I wouldn't see any reason to buy it because of the almost 95% similarity. Yes, if you have Aventus you don't need Nero and the other way around!!
Still: Hats off!!

Supplement! A topic I had completely forgotten but for everyone here is certainly not insignificant:
Durability / Perception:

Here I must admit enviously that the Nero here the nose slightly in front has!!
But I can't determine whether it's the actual durability or the personal perception. Just this point is different for everyone.

When niche goes wrong
The opening of Nero is quite odd at first, you basically have this green lime and fresh minty herbs blended with something warm, fruity and tropical, which kind of reminded me of Azzaro Chrome at first. It's the pineapple – a note which I personally do not really get, this meaning I don't get its point in perfumery and I always (always!) find it out of place and stinky, but that is a matter of personal taste. Here, pineapple results in a sort of warm, bread-ish, sweetish and a bit sickening note halfway ginger, pollen, resins, with this "tropical" juicy heart and also some "vegetable" hints, like the smell of red pepper. I honestly almost get no patchouli at all at first, except for a green-hearty feel at the very base. As minutes pass and the horrid fruity note(s) vanish Nero gets a bit better, finally ending on a decent herbal patchouli accord, dry and a bit generic, with a sweetish-metallic breeze all around (same depth, feel and quality of most low-mid masculine designer scents in my opinion). Persistence is great at least, but apart from that, sadly a "no" for me.

Beautiful parfume. People say it's Aventus clone but even though it's a little bit similar for me much better than Aventus.
