I bought Aventus about a month ago because I liked it personally and I haven't had good results with it. Perhaps it's body chemistry or I'm doing it wrong.
I came here to see what people had to say about it and apparently it's the most complimented fragance of all according to that huge thread (http://www.basenotes.net/t/212334/which-scent-gets-you-the-most-female-compliments).
I started doing a lot of sprays, like 7 between neck, sides of neck and wrists (on the front, not the palm). Then I tried two on chest with some on shirt. Still nothing.
No compliments, it wears off fast, etc...
It's odd because all the others have worked great. GIT and MI have been fastastic, as well as A*Men and Eau d Issey. All four of those with the winner being GIT have been complimented tens of times.
