  2. Re: Montblanc EXPLORER. Finally a designer’s clone of Aventus

    it's not much like aventus to my nose. kinda similar but not close, much heavier on that generic ambrox note you find in designer releases and lacking in fruit. decent performance though.

    Re: Creed melisime imperial question

    where did you find it? ebay is always a concern but you won't find MI bottles being refilled quite like Aventus so should be good.

    as for the batch i think it's a really great one.
