    I have Black Xs and L'Exces and they don't smell like the X02 batch i've had, BUT, this cheap perfume called Zara-Gold smells at the beginning just like X02, i swear!!!

    Himalaya is a copy of XS. He's comparing Black XS to Aventus. It's much different than XS.

    That's the closest I've found so far and it's not even close at all. Both have a pineapple note and that's where the similarity ends. Vision smells like dried sugared pineapple chunks. Lapidus PH has a distinct pineapple note as well, but it's not the same as Aventus.

    hey IncOgnito, you know what!? I actually think Aventus has some stuff in common with Black XS. I wouldn't say they smell like each other, but they definitely share some of the same DNA.

    The vibe is similar too - they're pretty musky and fruity, modern orientals.

    While we're on the subject, I also wanna mention that the drydown/basenotes of Aventus smell a lot like Straight to Heaven by Kilian in its own drydown/basenotes. They share the same patchouli-vanilla-musk thing. (Straight to Heaven smells nothing like Black XS though).

    Me and you might get bashed for it, but if you pay enough attention, the similarities are there.

    That being said, so far, nothing out there smells enough like Aventus to replace it.

    P.S. I own both Black XS and Aventus (2012 batch)

    Looks like I'm not a complete nutcase, thanks :P
    The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.

    Not even close. Black XS is all strawberry syrup with a hint of weird fecal note to me. Totally unlike Aventus XD
