I agree. Personally that's the part that makes it worth owning. Topnotes are whatever, but the base on Aventus is the part I enjoy.
Hype machine or not, Cool Water still doesn't seem to be considered an equal substitute for Green Irish Tweed by most GIT fans on the board, or Meharees being able to deliver up to the same standard as Musc Ravageur (at least from what I've noticed people saying).
Knock offs are fine, but I'm usually skeptical that they'll nail it.
Then again I'm not bananas for Aventus's opening, and I'm sure Fresco smells fine for $30 bucks, so no one is really losing out.- - - Updated - - -

You tried Enchanted Forest
yet? That's a pretty heavy blackcurrant scent (multiple aspects of it actually).
