    Default Fragrances similar to Aventus?

    I purchased a small decant of a 2011 batch of aventus a little while ago and really liked it. It is very unique in a way and I have gotten plenty of compliments while wearing this. I will likely purchase a bigger decant or bottle soon but I am looking to see what similar scents to this I can find. Any suggestions?
    Top 5 Favorite Fragrances:
    1) Creed Aventus
    2) Creed Millesime Imperiale
    3) Kiton Black
    4) YSL M7
    5) Gucci Pour Homme II

    I think someone said once that Gucci Guilty Intense was close, but I personally don't get the similarity.

    DULLAH at one point suggested Zara Sprint 9.58. The pineapple note (maybe a bit sweeter and def. more artificial) is similar throughout without the asky/smoky/leather accord that we see in Aventus. Maybe worth a shot?

    IMO, Kenneth Cole Reaction for Men is a poor man's Aventus. It's not a bad scent, but longevity is lacking. Nonetheless, you may want to give it a try since you like Aventus.

    Nothing smells like Aventus... until some designer realizes how great the scent is and decides to rip-off Creed, again (ie. MI - Unforgiven, GIT - Cool Water).

    To my nose Riverside Drive (drydown) is similar to Aventus, but Aventus is much better IMHO.

    Just realized I wrote Unforgiven... Unforgivable. Either way, shameless rip-off.

    So far, Jaguar Vision seems to be the one that's often mentioned as being the closest to Aventus. I've only given it a quick sniff at TJ Maxx, and it does seem to have that pineapple/wood vibe, but it seems to lack that neat ashy birch note that makes Aventus so unique.

    Does Jaguar Vision come closer than Zara Sprint 9.58 ? For those who have smelled both ?

    I heard some say Mont Blanc Legend was similar. Anyone tried it? Still waiting for a review on this one.

    You will not be happy with anything other than Aventus. Nothing comes close.

    Zara Sprint is a remake of Paco Black XS.

    I own Gucci by Gucci as well and didn't notice a similarity but I think thats because the pineaple in aventus is what makes it pretty unique. I have seen very few fragrances with a pineaple note.

    Black Dragon cologne has a really close smell to Aventus. It's listed as a pheromone cologne but I just buy it because it smells the closest I've seen to Creed Aventus.

    My advise is, shop around for a bottle or decant of the real McCoy. Other colognes may smell "like" or "similar" to Aventus, but nothing even close to the original (maybe it has to do with the Royal pineapple they use, if there even is such a thing). And try to find a classic version, with Oakmoss and Birch smoke notes (I think that's anything pre-2015 or 2014..)

    Montblanc Exceptionnel has a nice pineapple note and is in the same type of category/style, so I suppose it could be considered "similar" in that regard, but the most similar to Aventus will obviously be the clones, with Afnan Silver being the best of them all.

    I can vaguely see the resemblance with this one.
