    I just got a sample of GIT, and it's ok. But Aventus makes my heart sing. Like an overpriced call girl. But, damn, you gotta love her and keep coming back for more.

    I'm surprised to see G.I.T. in the winning. No problem though for I love both fragrances.

    My thoughts exactly. I would easily choose Aventus over GIT. Not that I don't like that type of scent, but I feel Chez Bond is far better than GIT. I prefer the sweeter drydown instead of GIT's sour ambergris note.

    So I am leaning towards GIT or Aventus. To be honest, I would give GIT a 10/10 and Aventus (only tested at Neimans about 4 times in the last two years) 8/10.
    The reason I was thinking Aventus is because I never owned it and the hype. I am hoping that after awhile, I will like it more
    Hype has no smell. What you need to do is smell both and ask "Which do *I* prefer?" Buy that one. Or, buy into the hype and own a scent you'll like less than the one you could have bought instead.

    I voted for Aventus, because that's the one I prefer. But you're not me, so it makes no sense to wear my favorite instead of your own.

    My vote ties it up at 31 all! I much prefer Aventus. I do like GIT but doesn't suit me as well as Aventus.

    Aventus for me. I picked up samples of both before I ever discovered basenotes and fell in love with Aventus without ever being aware of the 'overhype' debate. Really like GIT as well though.

    I've bought both from Kron via splits on this board, and both transactions have been perfect.

    I'm pretty sure that International isn't an issue either given comments in his split thread.

    You could buy a full bottle of GIT (from Fragrancenet) and a 50ml split of Aventus here, and come in under the price of a full bottle of Aventus, and have both. If your opinion is going to change from an 8 to a 10, 50ml should be enough to do it.

    i love them both. so it entirely depends which one i'm in the mood for.

    my guess is that aventus is winning because it is newer and more original (though it does match git in terms of quality). git has become very familiar to people, whereas aventus at this point, nobody as done.

    in 10 years we'll probably start seeing clones of aventus all over the designer market.

    Aventus wipes the floor with GIT
    It's a much more modern fragrance, unique and sooooo strong that makes GIT look silly. Don't waste your money on GIT. Get Aventus out of these two and give MI a try whilst you're out there getting it!!

    Love both but I pick Aventus, it just smells more unique to me and is blended masterfully.

    I don't see how anyone can own one without the other, as they are both pristine fragrances.

    Aventus...both are great but I enjoy Aventus more and so do the people around me....

    Ok. I have GIT on my left arm and AVentus on my right. I think they both smell good. The old lady likes GIT better.

    I wonder if age has anything to do with who voted for Aventus or GIT. I am thinking maybe the young crowd would vote more toward Aventus and the older crowd voted more towards GIT. This is just a generalization that I may or may not be true.

    The Old Lady?. Hope she doesn't read the forum.

    All kidding aside. I am mid 50's and prefer Aventus. As good as GIT is, I find Aventus more unique.
