    Lightbulb Worth getting Antaeus if you already have Aventus?

    Not sure if I should, so just wondering really. Is Aventus comparable to Chanel's Antaeus? I have and love Aventus, but having tried Antaeus recently, I'm tempted to get a 50ml bottle (right, like I need another fragrance!). Based on my wardrobe, would you recommend this as one to have in the fragrance wardrobe, or is it overkill? After all, Aventus is manly enough is it not?

    Worth owning both imo. They're nothing alike.

    Totally different so if you like it buy it.

    There are so different like an apple & an orange.

    Based on your collection, you seems like like somethings fresh, but Antaeus is a leather chype with civet so it is not fresh at all.

    However, it is a must-try since it is one of the classic & a masterpiece.

    That's one reason why I considered it. We get a lot of cool weather here in the UK and sometimes winter can be grey and dull, so a leathery chypre is something I could do with. That beeswax note is pretty amazing I have to say....

    they only share some common letters and sound like one is the anagram of the other...that's it.

    IMHO, both are worth getting, considering also the fact that they are not alike.

    They are nothing alike. Aventus is fresh and modern. Antaeus is a spicy leather that is somewhat dates. The leather didn't come through all the spices enough for me.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Although I'm not a fan of modern Antaeus, its smell is utterly different from Aventus (which, to me, smells like nothing else). No reason not to have both if you enjoy them. That seems to be the consensus. Though if Pipsta thinks Antaeus smells like spicy latex condoms, I wonder where he's shopping . . . .
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    I'm gonna have to disagree with most of the guys here and say that I feel these 2 fragrances smell pretty darn close to one another. Depending if you don't mind 2 fragrances that similar, I would say go for it. But if not, then stay away and find something a bit different than Aventus.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    haha, that's what I was thinking. I have to admit getting the two confused for awhile when reading things here here simply because the names are so similar.

    Other than their names rhyming they are not similar at all.

    Yes, but if you like Aventus, Antaeus is very, very different. Sample before you buy.

    Say WHAT !?!

    Is it worth owning a pair of Timberland boots and a pair of Brooks Brothers suit & tie shoes ?
    Is it worth owning a Ferrari & a Bentley ?

    They share NOTHING other than they both are great smelling scented water, you can spray on yourself to smell better.
    No similarities at all - other than they both start with an A.

    I think that both have a similar vibe in the drydown, so I understand the comparison. Antaeus is good, but I find Aventus better overall.

    They are very different, I agree, however I can easily see the OP's comparison of Antaeus' dark woods atmosphere to the smokiness of Aventus.
