This late summer, early fall weather seems to be well-suited for these two. They are both somewhat new, and mostly liked overall. So, let's see if we can find a clear winner......at least when it comes to basenoters.
Pick the Creed that you prefer.
The results so far are about what I expected. I think Royal Oud might be a really well done safer, office type scent and Aventus is just an overall unique, great smell. Judging from scent alone(not versality, longevity, etc.), Aventus might get a perfect score from me and RO's more like an 8/10 or so. I'll go with Aventus too, but RO is definitely one to sample as well.
