    Try Ananas Fizz by L'Artisan and see what you think. Really nothing like it though.

    Buy one of the splits in the splits section on this site. You can get 50ML for a more decent price.

    You cannot imitate quality fragrances, you only make them in the hope people will buy yours

    I'm with everyone on this. There's no way to replicate that fragrance. Just like cool water and GIT, they sorta sorta sorta smell similar, but not really. Lol. You can def distinguish the authentic. Plus, why would you want to wear anything other than Aventus? I buy it up just bc I'm afraid I'll run out. Do I really need 8 oz of this stuff? Probably not, but it's my favorite fragrance so as someone said above, buy in a split

    The one that gets mentioned most as kind of like Aventus is Jaguar Vision. I do usually see if for around $20 at TJ Maxx/Marshall's. I here it's missing that great smoky birch note from Aventus though.

    Rocawear 9IX attempts a musky fruit combo. Same idea, different league.

    It has a banal ambiance to it, but I can't really pinpoint another fragrance that smells quite like Aventus. Somehow I get a general "mens cologne" vibe from it, but not sure why. I guess women love this, but I'm still not sure why.

    Like he said above. It's a magic potion type elixir for women.

    Fresco isn't bad, and it has a few similarities to Aventus, it's not recommendable in it's own right.

    OK, smell is subjective, but I followed advice posted here and eslewhere and purchased Joop Nightflight as an alternative to Aventus. IMHO, they smell NOTHING alike.

    Nightflight is an ok fragrance, but no, it doesn't resemble Aventus at all. I really don't even get much pineapple in Nightflight. To me, it smells more like powdery lemon mixed with dryer sheets or fabric softener. It's cleaner & also more dated in a 90s fresh fougere kind of way. I'd relate it more to fragrances like Cool Water, Eternity, Plat. Egoiste, etc.
