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.

The opening is fruity with citruses and blackcurrant. The birch gives it a smoky facet. The drydown is woodsy and musky. Similar to Aventus.

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