  1. Re: Aventus - Did they change certain design elements?

    Don't be wearing it everyday, because eventually you won't be able to smell it (olfactory fatigue). It's well know Aventus Is a long lasting scent but not to rhe wearer after some time. Enjoy!

    Re: gendarme and gendarme 20

    20's drydown is a bit sweeter than the original which is more white musk with a hint of leather. Unlike the EDC, 20 and EDP will last you most of the day.
