    [QUOTE=Buysblind;2985294]Hey Gary, how do you like HTTP in comparison to Aventus?

    - - - Updated - - -

    I sampled both but preferred HTTP. Despite all of the comparisons I think that they smell nothing alike. On my skin Aventus was wonderfully smoky, but I got no pineapple. HTTP has very prominent pineapple, but it is very "green" with zero smoke. The green apple appears more prominently in the drydown. It's an odd scent, but I found myself really attracted to it. My small collection is made up primarily of either plush Chanels and Guerlains or old school powerhouses (which my wife loves) like Aramis and Kouros, so this will be a nice option when I'm in the mood. Both fragrances have terrific longevity, and I sometimes have longevity issues with fragrances.

    All this talk about batch variations must be true. I got a 50ml decant of the 2013 batch of Aventus and it's 100% pineapple, no smoke. Definitely different than the 2011/2012 samples I've had before.

    Same here, thanks to ChuckW's suggestion. Selection includes, Arrogant, Riviera, Tahitian Water and Notting Hill. Sampled them all on paper, prior to purchase and not a bad one in the bunch. $48 for the set, so $12 each seemed reasonable.

    Bought Encre Noir for around $28 and One Man Show Gold for $14. Finally tested Aspen, but am unsure if there was something wrong with the very low level in the tester bottle, because it smelled kind of off.

    I hope to find a few more bargains wandering around Dubai the next few days.
    Regards,

    Ordered these from Fragrancenet but only expect to get a couple of them since they were in such low quantities. It was worth a try at the low prices they had.

    Big fat 4.0 bottle of Creed Orginal Vetiver. I missed having this one in my stable of scents. It's a nice change-up scent for me, and it's never incorrect in any situation.
