    Default Bond no. 9 Riverside Drive vs. Davidoff Adventure

    Hey guys:

    This probably sounds like a ridiculous match-up. Maybe like Tyson vs. Pee Wee Herman. But I tested out Riverside Drive yesterday. I thought it was basically a fruity musky woods scent. The smell was good, but not anything that would have me rushing out the door with gold card in hand. Adventure, on the other hand, can be had cheap and also is a fruity woods scent. I'm no suggesting that they smell alike or anything. I think that Adventure is a great value frag and Riverside Drive is highly overpriced for what it delivers. So, is it possible that the two frags kinda meet in the middle somewhere. I haven't worn my sample of Riverside Drive to work yet, but it would have to be quite impressive to outshine Adventure. I wore Adventure to work one time, and had two different women inquire about it.

    Riverside Drive by several lightyears.

    I always saw a similarity between Riverside drive and Joop! Nightflight (pineapple and herbs in both), while I tried to compare Adventure to D&G One (both sort of warm, somewhat spicey ambers).
    In short, I'm not sure I understand the comparison, but maybe I don't know those two well enough...

    I was very tempted to buy Adventure based on sniffing it a few times and the cheap price, but after a few full wearings I've found it simply disappears after an hour or two.

    Riverside drive - I have been turned off the pineapple note just because of Joop! memories, but I thought it was for sure one of the top 5 Bond frags. Interesting and well done.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Davidoff Adventure.
    BTW Riverside Drive is my favorite Bond.
    Adventure's sesame note makes it so unique and very good for a designer scent.
    It's massively underrated (like alot of "post-zino" davidoff) here on BN.
