    Default Creed Aventus and RL Purple Label - brothers?

    Just bought purple label bottle and surprisingly found the similarity with Aventus.
    Purple Label sounds like ashy Aventus which most of base noters hate.

    No, not really. Purple Label has more in common with Silver Romance and Bleecker Street, though. Purple Label is green, blackberry, slight wood (mahogany) and a hint of leather.

    I received a sample of RL Purple Label yesterday and upon first sniff I immediately thought of Aventus. I'm surprised don't see this comparison made more often.

    some people call it similar to bleecker street, yet i've drawn comparisons between bleecker street and aventus.

    in the end, nothing can match king aventus at what it does.

    This is correct!!! Silver Romance is close and Bleecker Street is even closer!!!

    They smell very similar to me but the longevity on Purple Label is TERRIBLE! I got about 3-4 hours if that.

    Brothers? If so, one was clearly adopted.

    I own both and don't really make any connection either, even with my limited experience in this hobby.

    About the only similarities that are to be found note-wise are oak moss in the base and black currant/bergamot combo (Aventus) vs. blackberry/mandarin combo (RL PL) in the top notes. If one's nose is more attuned to berries and oranges, I can see where they may pick up on this - but for the most part they're fairly different scents.

    EDIT: ok, decided to spray each on separate hands and, strangely enough, for the first few minutes I get a similar vibe from each. Aventus clearly benefits from having an apple note and feels much brighter whereas PL slowly starts to feel a bit muted as the mid and basenotes take over. But yeah, whether I take a sniff or inhale deeply, I do get a similar vibe.

    Heck, might as well add Romance Silver to the mix.

    LOL yes.

    It smells like a distant cousin of a Bleecker street

    +2 - RL Purple Label is closer to Bleeker St. imo.
