Well personally I always interpreted Aventus as smokey pineapple, cause when I sniff it on me that's what I get in my personal proximity, though the pineapple part is very apparent in the beginning, and later on even I have trouble pinpointing exactly what it smells like, but it's smoky and nice and "green." Surprisingly when I've been complimented by others no one has really said pineapple or natural. As a matter of fact a few people have told me it's synthetic smelling which I kind of get (due to fruity smokiness aspect).
People have trouble describing this scent (regular people not scent heads). One thing that I've noticed is uniform when people describe the smell as "green" on me. Now GIT people have told me flat out makes me smell like grass, and is not really well received by anyone around me, which subsequently has waned my liking for that frag. Aventus just gives off an apparent "beautiful smell, sort of green." However others interpret it, doesn't matter, just smells good. I'll definitely say it is a bigger hit with the older crowd, younger people (18-21) around me are not praising it nearly as much as the older folks I am around, though there are some young people that dig this on me.
