    Default Aventus Blended With SMW?

    Anyone tried this? I perused the Creed Blends topic a while back, but the thread was too old to have any mention of Aventus in it. I was just curious, does anyone think that Aventus and SMW blended or layered in any ratio would be good? Theyre both very interesting fragrances in my opinion, Im just not sure if they would mix well.

    Thoughts?

    Personally can't imagine it. I have and like both, but separately.

    I haven't tried this, but I would predict that they would not fit well together.

    However, I can attest to Aventus and Jardin d'Amalfi blending FANTASTICALLY together, 50/50. as well as Aventus and Royal Water, 75/25.

    A touch of Aventus is not disagreeable with a bit of Millesime Imperial, in fact that's the only scenario where I can tolerate Aventus.

    Yes definitely feasible. Tried it a couple times at 1:1 ratio. Becomes quite a unique smoky pineapple citrus scent overall.
    Also, OV and SMW at 1:1 is very nice too

    Aventus and Millesime Imperial Layering is probably my "signature scent", in the way that no one around will smell the same. I really love it, and people love it to. I use: 3 sprays of Aventus and 3-4 of Millesime.

    I caught a whiff of a SMW and VIW combo, because I had 2 of the tester strips nearby. Very very very delicious combo.

    I don't like it, makes it smell like CK One.

    I like the Aventus and JDA blend. Two others that work well for me are Aventus and VIW and especially Aventus and Original Cologne. I have had a few comments on that blend.

    The only layering ive tried with SMW is with Original Santal.

    Yes - sshhh! Don't tell anyone! :-) This is the best blend of of all time. Why? I'll tell you...

    Millesime Imperial:
    • Top notes: bergamot, green mandarin and lemon
    • Middle notes: iris and sea scent
    • Base notes: sandalwood, amber and musk

    Aventus:
    • Top notes: bergamot, blackcurrant, apple, pineapple
    • Middle notes: juniper berries, birch, patchouli, jasmine
    • Base notes: musk, oak moss, ambergris, vanilla

    Millesime Imperial extends the top notes with Lemon; Aventus extends the middle and base notes (Jasmine, Vanilla).

    There is no conflict, just smooth fusion.

    Just awesome! :-)

    Where's my Godzilla facepalm picture?
    I can't even be bothered posting it.
    Are you the same person who posted as "Alejandro-Loves -CREED last week and posted this ? :

    " For those who know CREED, have an understanding that every fragrance is made with the finest ingredients from around the world. It's like fine wine! Choosing a fine bottle of wine is not a fast process. Yes I can walk into a store and buy a bottle for a few bucks, but if I am looking for a great tasting wine, etc etc etc " and this :
    "I have been a CREED Fragrance Specialist for some time now. I never expect to sell a bottle of CREED to someone that is just learning about the fragrances. I love to take the time and see what type of notes you enjoy and most importantly, what settles on you the best."

    Sad thing is some people are probably going to be impressed by this stuff

    Wow! Thanks for the welcome folks!

    Sorry to disappoint you, I'm not a marketer or marketeer.

    Do I know a little about fragrances? Yes, having spent time in Grasse, France. Now living in London. Can I write fluently? Yes, I'm an author!

    I was elated to discover the blend that I mentioned and therefore wanted to share it as my first post on a forum that I've enjoyed reading for years. Talking about time, for the past 25 years I've been looking for a blend of many different brands that satisfies my nose (not for everyone) and I believe that I have found it.

    For those who appreciate the detailed structure of the proposed blend, I value your opinion.

    Thank you.

    You've been reading the forum for years and it didn't occur to you that calling yourself MillesimeMe and posting that you had found "the best blend of all time " might mark you as today's CREED troll.

    I wouldn't dare enter into a fragrance discussion with someone who had actually spent time in Grasse
    but if you think you have made some significant scientific breakthrough I suggest you contact "master perfumer" Olivier Creed and give him the good news.
    If I were you I would have done it already rather than wait for someone to resurrect a two year old thread before making your announcement to the world.

    Members are constantly complaining about the lack of smart posters can now we see why. One of them shows up and gets shit on immediately. The amount of energy put into to being miserable is crazy to me. Please dont be scared away because of this warm welcome MillesimeMe.

    Ive never been into blending any fragrances. One always seems to overwhelm the other so it seems like a waste.
