    Anyone 'aware' of some good ones? Need help on this
    Try terred'hermes or even musc ravageur i hear those are great projection and longevity scents. If not you can just buy Fresco next time its the same as Aventus but much easier also lasts longer.

    talk about overdose, no wonder u can't smell anything after 2 hours!

    I have also found that I get more Longevity and sillage from Fresco than Aventus. Musc Ravageur as the guy on top recommended is a must buy. Easily in my top 5.

    If Aventus only lasts you an hour and you want it to last twelve, you could use the same dosage twelve times on an hourly basis. It's scientifically proven to work.

    10 sprays of Lapidus Pour Homme should do the job.

    So I sampled Fresco today and I love it. It's been lasting a long time too.

    I also smelled Jaguar Vision but I didn't care for it because it's nearly identical to Aventus.

    Hang on. You own FOUR DIFFERENT BATCHES OF AVENTUS, including the X02 and K04 batches, which seem like polar opposites to me (I've smelled both. One is sharp pineapple and the other muted pineapple and heavy smoke), and you think Jaguar Vision smells nearly identical? And you love Fresco?

    ...?!

    Musc Ravageur is very citrusy, and powdery. Women LOVE it.

    Well that's just great, what am I going to do with my case of Axe Dark Temptation bodywash and litre bottle of Fresco that I just ordered ?
    I'll have to start doing decants on ebay.

    How much do you think I should charge for a 1.5ml decant of Axe Dark Temptation ?
    It can't be too much as I've got about 17,000 of them..

    Strange because neither yours nor Burzan's feedback ratings indicate that you've done a swap. Burzan currently has a total of 5 posts, 3 of which are in this thread. He also has not even mentioned Fresco until this thread. So how did you guys arrange your deal?

    Perhaps they just live round the corner from each other in real life.
    These coincidences happen all the time.

    Depends on the batch #

    On a serious note, I think someone hacked the OP's account.

    I've already sold him a bottle of Aventus and at that point in time was his favorite scent.

    Not too mention his posts are on this thead only. Same account and trolling.
    Some people really need attention apparently...and on a fragrance forum!? LOL

    There have been an odd number of trolls here lately.

    Sure, will get right on that. In the meantime why don't you reply to post #52. You see the fact is that you've made a number of bizarre posts in this thread, Tuscan Leather lasts 2hrs on you, but Rochas Man lasts 11? D&G The One is potent and lasts into the next day? Aventus smells like lemon pledge? You're not a fan of the mint smell in Tobacco Vanille? These things cannot be explained by skin chemistry, which leads me to believe that either your samples are fake, or you're trolling.
