Insider tip!
I bought the smallest bottle of this perfume out of curiosity with my last Zara order. For my nose, it smells almost as intense as its famous model, even if the scent does not last quite as long. For the price, the ideal office fragrance!

Aventus on a budget, that's just what it is...
I have a 2018 batch, don't know about the current version, but to me, this smells like a poor man's aventus. It is in no way as complex and does not evolve in any way.

The opening is really fresh and fruity, but even in a way that is too fruity. My 8-year-old son, who has an insanely accurate nose, said: "You smell like Fanta", when I sprayed it on. Ever since I can't help myself from smelling Fanta in the opening.

If you are on a really tight budget, you could go for this, but it really is created to smell nice when you spray it in the shop and it implodes like a bad souffle after like 20 minutes, the mid and dry down are so dull and uninspired. Got nothing to do with Aventus or anything else decent.

There are far better clones than this, so I would advise spending a little more and get CDNIM, Rasasi Zebra pour Lui or Al Haramain L'Aventure.

Oh, the performance...
I love the smell. In my eyes, one of the better Aventus clones. I definitely think it's better than the more expensive Montblanc Explorer.
Vibrant Leather smells insanely fresh and masculine and it can be worn in any situation. But the performance is really very very bad. You would have to spray it every 3 hours. In terms of price this would be possible (it would still be considerably cheaper than the Aventus), but I would like to have a fragrance that lasts until after lunch and I don't have to constantly repeat it in the toilet.
If Zara would make this fragrance stronger, then I would pay 30-40 Euros for it.
All in all the perfect student scent: mega cheap for a great scent and the one lecture a day only takes 90 minutes (hardly out of my studies, already I'm talking like a 50-year-old)...
Whenever I'm at Zara to sniff new scents, I find myself thinking about taking the Vibrant Leather with me. But since I have the Montblanc Explorer I forbid myself to do so

...there's something wrong...
...everything has already been said about the fragrance, and my nose is not tuned up enough to give me something witty - unfortunately. But what I can point out is that I have NEVER possessed a fragrance which had such a weak durability! I really don't know what the reason for this is, especially since it is also an eau de parfum. Did I get a "Monday bottle"? Sorry but I don't exaggerate and I can only say that a fragrance like that doesn't really give me any pleasure - even if the scent suits me...

Must breathe like a good wine
I think like 95% of all the other owners here, I bought Vibrant Leather for reasons of similarity to Aventus and I have to say, not so bad!

The flacon I find frankly boring but hey, simple it's design does not stand out negatively on the shelf and magnetic closures are already really something fine.

For me, the principle of Vibrant Leather is very similar to wine. It needs to breathe a little at the beginning, take time and work before you can find it good.

I find the top note simply much too strict, smells like alcohol and not seductive but obtrusive. But then the magic begins, a beautiful, fresh, fruity and smoky scent that knows how to convince
Up to here the scent is already really good, but when I smelled my jacket the day after the first tests I was blown away. What a nice base note, one finds really rare.

All in all very solid, the price-performance ratio is excellent and, except for the top note, very successful for me.

I love wearing it.

Fake it till you make it
Of course I bought this fragrance because of its alleged similarity to Aventus. First of all: I own Aventus and think it's good, but I think the hype is a bit exaggerated.
Immediately after application Vibrant Leather starts very fresh and citric, which I like very much. The fragrance does not have a great development with me. But that is not bad at all, because he smells damn good and should not cause any problems. You can get a hell of a lot for 20€ here.
Compared to the Creed, of course, he draws the shorter one. Why of course? This fragrance costs less than 1/10 (in the same amount). I am convinced that Creed still creates art and Zara, on the other hand, simply fills the pointer by the hectolitre. I'm not a fan of buying fakes. Either you afford the original or you don't (yes, the view is controversial). But if you are not willing to pay 200€ +X for a perfume and still want to smell good you can strike here.

The art from the house of Creed is just not available ;).

195 Euro for 50ml or 19 Euro for 100ml?
This is about a great clone for an unbeatable price.

Of course, Aventus from Creed is "the original" and Vibrant Leather from Zara is only a copy.
But the price difference is so huge that one should still estimate VL.
The smell is really very similar.
Small, almost minimal, differences.
Is that worth the price difference ?
That's for everyone to decide I personally think that a copy will never be better than the original Alone, because without the original the copy would never have existed.
It is something completely different to create something than to copy something But to imitate something that is so much cheaper than the original and therefore not only accessible to 10% of the people, also has merit or ?

I own both scents: Aventus and Vibrant Leather

Uplifting!
Vibrant Leather is a light, citrusy/fruity fragrance. It's very pleasant, very uplifting and I can't see anyone not liking this, but it's not WOW and it doesn't feel unique. I've never smelled Aventus or any of its clones so I can't compare them, but VL is very nice on its own. It actually reminds me a lot of Nivea Men Sensitive body wash gel's scent (they both have bamboo, so I'm guessing that's it). There's absolutely no smokiness. I can see this being used as an everyday, casual, dumb reach kind of fragrance. There's one thing it lacks, and that's performance - it only lasts for about 4-5 hours on my skin before its totally gone. On clothes, it lasts considerably longer, but doesn't project much. It's a pretty linear fragrance that doesn't change much after the opening is gone.

All things said, it's definitely worth the price.

The Stepbrother
When I first sprayed the fragrance, I immediately thought of Creed Aventus, that unmistakable spicy, fruity and citric scent (a similar effect is also achieved by Terre d Hermes EDT) I have a Creed Aventus fragrance strip and a Vibrant leather EDP strip on the table in front of me as I write my comment.
I had 3 people compared, only the employee in the Douglas store could smell that the scent of Zara was more citric, but she knew beforehand which scent was Zara.
The scents have a considerable similarity.

Shelf life/ silage
I sometimes wonder how some people apply their fragrances here, as how often, where, where to and when they spray.
I sprayed the fragrance about 6 times a few days ago before work.
I could still smell the scent on the fabric and on my skin after more than 10 hours of work.
The Sillage is not as present as the one of Aventus, but the first 3 hours it already has a certain aura.
The bottle is heavy feels valuable is simple and clear.
The lid is magnetic, the spray head does its job, the fragrance is evenly distributed.
For the price a strong offer 20€ and 285€ is already a big difference.

You've got one on your nose
Over the last 2 years I have tried Creed Aventus's alleged twin fragrances more often, as I really like the fragrance.
I can say that this fragrance certainly bears no resemblance to Creed Aventus. Neither the opening nor the finish remind me of Creed and one notices that the fragrance is not one of its kind.
The scent is well suited for walks, getting bread rolls from the baker and spending a nice evening with friends.
Definitely not suitable for clubbing and as Dupe to Creed Aventus.
It's like comparing a Golf GTI to an Aston Martin Vantage. Both vehicles can drive 250 km/h fast, but the Aston is already losing the GTI after 2 seconds.

I would like to rate 10 to this EDP instead of 8. This new VL is a Zara lost opportunity over the previous VL. Nice but not an improvement.

The new presentation is superb! The bottle is discreet, well-made and the cap is magnetic. The fragrance is distinctive and excellent.

Finally! One year after I petitioned my local Zara manager to advocate for an EdP of VL, it arrives. The system works. LOL
