    Return a leaky bottle through the mail? You might want to insure it.

    They said they would refund the shipping once they get the bottle back. I agree, that is what a reputable company would do.

    I ordered one bottle, then saw that another ebayer was selling for 55, so I ordered a second.

    Is there a 12-step program for me?

    I was actually wondering why there was no pineapple armageddon today in this topic.

    Will the people who ordered a sample receive a 3.3 oz bottle?
    Will the people who ordered a 3.3 oz bottle receive a sample?
    Are delivery vans and warehouses smelling like Aventus because of leakage?

    Coach Rob as actually done this before with his Signature Scent Kiton which apparently he said it smelled similar to Aventus. After, purchasing a sample of Kiton and finding it's nothing like Aventus. This new discovery i'll take it with a grain of salt.

    Let me guess, you own Aventus, right? ;-) Of course what you just described is pretty much what I smelled with Aventus, so I guess you just confirmed Ilum Deam was successful in copying it.

    In one of coachrob's most recent vids didn't he mention dr.scent as being "my site"..

    I bought a bottle, but the promotion of this whole line just seems fishy, point blank.. And the select few of other youtube reviewers that he tossed samples and bottles to is even more fishy, because they hardly have any cred.

    Received my bottle today. After 3 hours now, both are very similar (I have the z01 batch). The main difference being the lemon note in Fresco. The lemon does stand out a little making the pineapple in Aventus smell a little smoother. There is also a little less smokeyness and a bit more oakmoss in the Fresco. Overall I'm pretty pleased. I believe I will layer the 2 to make my bottle of Aventus last longer.

    Got my sample and bottle today. Kind of bummed that I didn't get the full bottle instead of the sample like others have been getting. I wonder how that worked? Anyway it does smell very similar to aventus, only more linear. I don't think I'll be splurging for Aventus at this point if you can get this stuff for $30

    Payment method, perhaps? Did you use PayPal? Or, maybe it was just a case of human error. Well... I guess it comes down to human error either way. I have the world's latest mail delivery, so I probably won't get mine until the end of the day.

    Yeah man paid with paypal. Very odd.

    Bought a sample and then bought a bottle after, as I wasn't sure if the hype would make the price increase.

    Its as similar as any other cheap copy of a name brand fragrance. So...of course it doesnt smell exactly like Aventus but it smells like a pretty good copy of Aventus.

    Thank God I don't like Aventus, even though my wife loved the sample. If it was Royal Oud, I'll be jumping on it like it was about to run out.
