    It sucks. It is utterly artificial. Artificial smelling, dilluted and very modern pineapple together with some generic smokyness. The smoke here is not like the delicious smoke and ambergris base in Bois de Portugal. It is a colder basenote.

    I would never ever buy this perfume for myself. I prefer to stick with the normal smelling classics.

    P.S. I have a similar view of Terre DHermes too. It is too artificial for my nose.

    Do we really need another Aventus thread? Sheesh. You tried a fragrance and you didn't enjoy it. No worries. There are plenty of others to try.

    I think some people go out of their way to be confrontational, and then they wonder why they're always at the center of argument after argument.

    Lol, I was wondering too

    I don't find Aventus overbearingly synthetic, I'm glad I own it and I enjoy it very much.

    That wasn't really what I meant, although I did foresee a few different interpretations of the initial.
    For what it's worth I think we have already had the ultimate anal Aventus threads with the satanic "Batch numbers" and Noir Drakkar's astonishing "7 boxes" recent effort (can't remember the actual thread title, something like "Is Aventus the best Creed" )

    Lol. I do get more pineapple than wished for in that scent, I don't like that fruity. It's like pineapple kebabs. Lol, one might think you went to a luau. I do like the woods but the smoky pineapple..like one has been turning those kebabs all day.

    Tried it recently and remember the top notes to be a bit odd but, as far as I could smell it, it dried down to something fairly pleasant, modern and mainstream. Sadly it was overpowered by another scent I had sprayed on the same arm so I will have to try it again at some point. It smelled rather smoky and not as fruity as I had expected, the royal pineapple was not strong with this one. A friend of mine smelled it as pineapple and cum though.

    I personally wasn't impressed either - I prefer Bois du Portugal, which is quite nice classic.

    Turn that around. TdH much better. Much better for work and everyday. Aventus is overrated and middle of the road. What is special about smelling like ashtray and pineapple? JMO. Agree with OP. Said my peace!happy.gif

    I found Aventus underwhelming that the nature of the beast with hype to be honest have found all the creed i have sampled to be overpriced and over hyped but that just me
