I'm not a huge fan of Aventus myself. However, it isn't a bad scent, so at $35 for a 3.3 oz "clone" I decided to pull the trigger and purchased a bottle. I have a sample of Aventus, and now a full bottle of Fresco.
I don't understand how it can be compared to Aventus. Fresco smells like alcohol (which goes away) pepper, and water.
Not at all what I expected. I have a sample of Fresco coming in the mail as well. Maybe I got a bad bottle.
I did also spray it directly after a shower, usually my cologne smells different when I do that.
I'll give it another spray tonight, and see how it smells.
i didn't hype fresco at all. i just provided a medium to discuss it in. i was belligerently skeptical about the claim that aventus could be cloned. again, i didnt hype it. i just provided a medium of discussion and plenty of people decided to hype it. maybe 200 people will comment on my original santal thread. but that doesn't mean i'm recommending original santal to everybody. actually, NO fragrance has a direct clone. yes, there are always similar fragrances. but never direct clones.
