    Default Insurrection pure by reyane = Aventus

    I just saw a video in YouTube. They are saying insurrection pure is almost identical to Aventus. Has anyone tried this new frag out yet? Please let me know what you think. I will order it soon

    I own both Insurrection Pure and Aventus and while I love Aventus and also like the Reyanne scent, I don't find them as similar as people would make them out to be. That's just me. Insurrection Pure is a very nice scent and very inexpensive.

    Where did you order yours from Ebay or an online retailer? Did you get a good price?

    I doubt it

    Creed have taken out a patent on the notes pyramid of Aventus so there will be legal action if it is copied

    What notes stand out on the Reyane release to you hednic?

    Default Re: Insurrection pure by reyane = Aventus

    Here comes the hype. I would have pulled the trigger on the Insurrection, but it looks to be sold out everywhere. Glad I didn't go for Fresco, that turned out to be a flop. Who's Ilum Dean anyhow? Reyane is actually an established house that's been around for a grip, and makes pretty decent scents, so I have some faith in them.

    For me what stand out are the ginger and the incense giving it a spicy and smoky quality.

    Picked up a bottle on the 25th when it was still in stock. Haven't received a shipping number yet, but when I receive it I'll put in my two scents.If it smells anything like Aventus and lasts I'll be happy. Still have my bottle of Fresco which I still wear on very hot days when Aventus is too heavy. Hopefully Insurrection is more complex.

    I do hope it's better than Fresco. I would love a slightly less smoky Aventus, but with quality retained (like some of the earlier Aventus batches). Sure, Fresco had some pineapple, but the quality was not there to me. I suppose I could not expect it to be for that price...

    Where did you order from? I'm debating, but not sure I even want to spend the $20 to find out...

    LOL interesting update to my quote. It's like what happens when the National Enquirer posts a quote from someone.

    I can't say I disagree with the Lemon pledge comment, or the BOD Man series, but I do detect pineapple. I suppose you may detect a different fruit, but it's a fruit nonetheless.

    Anyway still waiting to hear impressions of Insurrection. Hoping for the best.

    Just got this in the mail and I have to say that the packing, bottle, and sprayer are excellent. Honestly, just from the package it looks like a $100 + fragrance. As for the fragrance itself...well....it doesn't smell like Aventus at all to my nose. First off there's absolutely zero pineapple (accord), leather, or smokiness. Basically what I get is a ton of apple on a base of vanilla. This is much closer to an amped up version of Boss Bottled than Aventus. With that being said I think it's well worth the $20 or so dollars and if your a fan of Boss Bottled or fruity fragrances your probably going to enjoy this. This also comes off about as synthetic as Boss Bottled. I haven't tested longevity, but projection is good so far. I'm going to give this a full wearing tomorrow and see if maybe my nose is a bit off.

    Thanks for the info silentrich! I'm curious about how the longevity is going to be for you, please update us when you can!

    On the one hand, I doubt this would be a replacement for Aventus. On the other hand, I also don't doubt that it could be quite good, and that's all that matters to me.

    Please do update when you've given it a full wear!
    I have a 100ml Gucci Pour Homme 2003 that I'll swap for Reflection Man or De Bachmakov. PM me if interested.

    If you want pineapple why not one of those terrible Jean Paul gualtier fragrances, think it's called black xs. That was pineapple to the extreme for me. Hated it, but I hate pineapple other than to eat. But real pineapple isn't sickeningly sweet like all these gross perfumes, it's bitter sweet, textured, watery and quenching.
