    Default Aventus = Philosykos

    These two smell almost exactly the same after half an hour. Has anyone else tried them?

    Don't get this at all. Besides considerably below average longevity and a "warmer weatgher" vibe, don't see them as similar at all.

    Nothing remotely resembling each other from start to 5 hours later to me. Green, sweet, fig tree leaves and figs vs tangy pineapples apples and smoke..... noway

    Philosykos is my scent of the day and it doesn't smell anything like Aventus.

    Default Re: Aventus = Philosykos

    I think I should explain my claim/observation.

    I got carried away and said half an hour. It was more like 2 hours maybe. I went for a walk at lunch time and it was extremely hot (around 17 degrees celcius). After I came back to the office Philosykos smelled exactly like Aventus on me. Exactly.

    It had that same amazing dirty, earthy, sweet smell.

    The fact that you were in extreme heat probably degraded the fragrance to the point it became unrecognizable because they smell absolutely nothing alike.

  23. #23

    Default Re: Aventus = Philosykos

    No they are different as they can be, green against sweet fruity

    Default Re: Aventus = Philosykos

    Nope. I get a sweet dry down from Aventus. It has the best dry down of any fragrance I have tried and Philosykos is the same.
