I like it, and would get a bottle but there always seems like something else comes up.
The gucci gets me close.
That's because there is not coconut in the one. But the notes together seem to have a coconut vibe.

TV is my fovorite winter scent, but I remember liking IC lots when I tested it. They had no samples of IC so I just kinda forgot about it.
I like RW very much.
No Gucci by Gucci came first, so I say Aventus smells like Gucci by Gucci.
Its not ridiculous to my nose I have worn them both many times. If they were the same price I would get the Aventus...
I was given a bunch of Aventus samples; I tossed them in the car and used them all. Being out of Aventus I purchased a bottle of Gucci by Gucci today.
I stated in another thread that Gucci by Gucci...
"Aventus, as I've always said, would be derided and scorned if it were put out by Boss."
Quoted by HDS
This is the way I see it as well.
I also prefer chez, because it lacks the " blue" notes to my nose. I do like GIT very much.
Alot mentioned, maybe try royal delight as well. I own and enjoy original santal when I in the mood for warm.
I agree with wildthingy, it's just his opinion. I have several creeds and would never buy Aventus. But, that's my opinion with considering the cost. Aventus can't make someone stand out in a crowd,...
SA at Saks told me they are getting sometime this spring, if that means anything.
I feel the same way, so I pay retail. I do this for almost anything that’s counterfeited. I seen a fake Ralph Lauran shirt at Marshalls (only once, don’t know how it got there). I still would shop at...
I already lost juice somehow.
SA at saks told me they get it in april. Nordstrom will ship to uk, at least I was told that by a SA in local store.
Oh yeah, its the greatest, beter than tom ford TV, would pay 200$.... Not, but I...
I think they were being sarcastic. Implying you can get fake git cheaper than 160$
I think Aventus smells similar to a stronger Gucci by Gucci. My first snif of Aventus, Gucci by Gucci came to mind.
I think this is a good thing.
This is helpfull, I will give Saks a call even though they gave many samples the flakon is my favorite (VIW).
Nice job Kerosene!
Thanks for the replies. I opened it and filled an atomizer. It smells good; that's most important.
I look for specific notes, then a quality frag that contains them, try it, buy it or not.
Hoping someone that ordered flakons from saks can help me out, the juice in mine is just a hair under the part of bottle where it tappers off. The bottle looked sealed delivery was prompt and lots of...
Great analogy, but can't say Pure Havana smells bad. IMO
I would not expect any designer frag to be as good as TV(longevity,silage, overall quality), but there's a price to be paid....
I'm going to my first NASCAR race, is it ok to wear Drakar?
I’m taking my Himalayan cat to the vet, can you recommend a creed.
I'm a white guy can I listen to r&b, I'm 43 can I eat speghetti o's, I'm a tall guy can I date a short woman. It's just your loss if you deprive yourself of something you like. IMO
Someone posted OS and Tom Ford TV a while back. I know it's only one creed but it's very nice. IMO
Simple if you like it then it's ok to wear.
Not strange, people have different tastes. I just thought don't get your hopes up, I didn't mean it's impossible to HATE one and like the other. IMHO
I like Pure Havana and Pure Malt, they are similar, so don't get your hopes up if you HATE pure malt.
I ordered mine from a local Norstroms 80$ free shipping.
I own Pure Malt, TV, and I also put this in same category as OS.
TV is my go to winter scent (my fav cold weather). Pure Havana is a suitable substitute for TV. I just ordered my pure...
I own both and I wish TB smelled/lasted/ or anything close to VIW. IMHO
I just ordered 250ml of VIW, so thats my taste for summer.
I have learned to keep the box (tried to return habit rouge) not just the receipt. It cost me a little because I didn't read the policy first .
The receipt clearly states the policy of the store here in the US. I would just ask for an SA that went to kindergarten

[QUOTE=Neurosis;1958765]If I was the SA I wouldn't let you do that lol.
I have both, I like pure malt but both are great IMO. If you crave that angel sent in the heat you have an option(not a joke).
I like both but chose Chez, it seems to be missing that "blue" note.
I own this and love it. It's by far my favorite cold weather scent. But if your not crazy about it move on, imho the price is to high just to be ok. I honestly don't get lots of compliments with...
I would like to ad my wife thinks copper square smells like acier. I think its less sweet and overall beter than acier. I know the notes don't look alike.
Just got a free sample of copper square; I think its very good. Not like traditional bonds at all (I do like chez and riverside)
I wore riverside drive to my wedding, but at this point chez is my favorite of all.
Funny so many people say VIW is great for the beach. When I spend lots of time at the beach with suntan lotion all day, I like to shower and put a new fragrance on for the evening. But when the...
I like chez a little better, because its lacking that "blue/fresh" note.
Orange Spice, VIW, GIT. It was stated in this thread that this is a "snapshot." May change without notice, I like most of them anyway.
Last on my list is OV. I'm not saying its not high quality,...
I like the original lots. One of my fav designer frags.
I think its a great vanilla.
No comment on the vetiver, but "getting into" niche frags only a year or two ago they are all new to me. Also, I like the idea that I'm wearing something that isn't so mainstream.
lol, I'm married now but when I was single they could have worn any frag. I do like my wife to wear nice stuff.
What I have learned, it takes time. Its not like I can try 10 frags at a store and know what I will like. I had to read a lot(from the people here) and wear them one day at a time. I made some bad...
Very clever, this is what I expected.
I seen lots of post like that and never the "other way around." I just asked what came to my mind and should have thought it out. The answer was simple as stated by Galamb
It was basically I’m straight and never see a straight only thread; I think a straight only thread would be rude. And lots of gay only threads. I got a few great answers ant want it ended.
I don't want to offend anyone. "I just kinda asked the question without really thinking it over." Great answers given; I wanted it stopped before it got ugly or it was taken wrong.
Very well put; hope they lock this thread.
I agree I hope its locked!
My point is if someone tried a new scent that I haven't, I wouldn't exclude anyones opinion.
I would want anyone’s advice on a subject, if their knowledgeable.
Stupid question, I erased it. Sorry
I will ad by killian, straight to heaven. May be strong for hot weather
Makes three of us, but I like soda pop.
Nice way to put it not like your trying to convert someone. I even agree with your opinion, but I still love orange spice. Maybe I'm just in the mood for something "rude and crude." Just getting...
I tried the regular, never seen flanker.
Thanks Superman, funny I don't care for kouros but like OS.
Muffin do you think it cost that much more to make Windsor; how is it a fact Windsor is higher quality. The pizza shop by my house says its the best in the world. According to the owner I guess.
Thanks for the spell check,us ingineers arnt known for spelling.
IMO, worlds apart in price not quality. Windsor being rare makes it interesting to me.
Thanks everyone. I bought the orange spice and really enjoy it. I have high hopes for the new woods and spices in the fall. If woods and spices is as good as I expect, I will get a falcon and...
I know, but there’s that small part of me that wants the "rare" creed. I guess that small part of me is the reason I don’t have a big savings account. I could buy about 8 shares of a stock I have my...
I tried creed Windsor this weekend ,Creed Orange Spice, Italian cypress TF.
I was close to buying the 405.00$ 1.7oz bottle(Windsor) the day after I tried it. But, I still want a new bottle of VIW...
I was not impressed at all. I do think the original smells good, but no longevity.
VIW by far out of these two. It can be argued that a cheaper substitute could be found for MI. No "good" substitutes for VIW. St barts is very week and I get no coconut, and coconut lime verbena is...
I thought bottle is only thing diff.
I would pick the chez over the git, because it lacks that "aqua" note.
Both are great for any occasion.
I never wore this, but VIW is a favorite I love for almost all occasions (spring / summer).
I agree. I never picked up a full bottle of PM(TV was my go to winter scent), but am counting on a similar good scent for the fall.
wore this on the golf course the temp around 83f, not to "heavy" at all.
Also just purchased the new amen summer storm, and enjoy it as well. Others for summer
Tom ford extreme or tom ford for men (these are a little less "playfull")
Number one for summer and maybe my number one over all is creed VIW. I am sadly out of this but have a few samples left. Will get a 4oz bottle May or June.
After I tried this a few days I bought it. I am looking forward for our weather to warm up, it seems a little light in the cold.
It reminds me of bonds.coney island. I have coney island so prob won't buy this one, but I have said that before.
Thanks for your insight Igor01. and the other BN's that explained this. I didn't realize it was so "complicated" with the different types of oud. This will make the hobby more fun, I have more to...
Thanks, just thought tom ford special blend would be easy to get. I am going to try some of the ones mentioned here.
Thanks eveyone I'm going to sample an oud, prob tom ford. But to me Dzing smell like you all descibed, but I don't think it has oud.
I ment never tried "true" oud scent.
I'm writing this from a new blackberry, so pleas forgive mistakes.
I was wondering what you "guys" mean by barnyard oud? I'm not sure I tried a "true" scent, I was given a big spray sample of bonds new signatue scent. But most Bn's say they can't smell oud in that.
I purchased Chez retail, all other bonds were buy one get one free (100ml).
I enjoy Chez,Riverside Drive, Coney Island, and the signature scent.
VIW is for summer and one of my favorite scents.
If you like like it thats all that counts. Anyway I don't think pure malt is a "mature" frag, more like a winter fun scent to me (sweet).
