    I've tried both and while Reflection Man smells good, Aventus is on a different level.

    well I already tried Aventus and it's A-MA-ZING. But I wonder how Reflection Man is compared to Aventus. Which one is more of a crowd pleaser and gets more compliments ?

    well because just because someone likes one scent more doesn't mean that it gets more compliments. For example I like DHI more than Dior Homme Eau but DHE gets more compliments

    Creed Aventus for me.

    Yes to Aventus. Reflection Man is the safest in the Amouage line up and would probably make for a good work place fragrance.

    I'd also recommend Creed's Jardin d'Amalfi.

    You should rephrase your question to find which gets more compliments, which again will go to Aventus. A pointless thread to be honest as there are "tons" of Aventus threads that you can search on to find similar answers...

    Aventus puts the camel clutch and smack down on Reflection man...but to be fair they're totally in different highways.

    I have both.
    Aventus generates more compliments for me, but Reflection Man is more safe to wear.
    You can't really go wrong with either one.

    Here´s my story:

    --->About a year ago:


    Final Overall ranking PT.1&2

    1- Amouage Reflection Man -------> 8.82
    2 - Le Labo Bergamote 22 --------------> 8.80 *
    3 - Amouage Lyric Man -------> 8.79
    4 - Frederic Malle Carnal Flower -------> 8.71
    5 - Hermes Hermessence Ambrè Narguille -------> 8.67
    6 - Tom Ford Tuscan Leather --------------> 8.66 *
    7 - Heeley Sel Marin --------------> 8.65
    8 - By Kilian Back to Black --------------> 8.62 *
    9 - Creed Aventus --------------> 8.61 *
    10 - Maison Francis Kurkdjian Lumiére Noire -------> 8.60 *


    ---> Recently

    Final Overall ranking PT.1, 2&3:

    1 - Amouage Memoir Man ---------> 8.87 ***
    2 - Tom Ford Tuscan Leather --------------> 8.84 *
    3 - Le Labo Bergamote 22 --------------> 8.75 *
    4 - By Kilian Back to Black --------------> 8.75 *
    5 - Creed Green Irish Tweed -------> 8.70 *
    6 - Byredo Pulp ---------> 8.69 ***
    7 - Amouage Lyric Man -------> 8.68 **
    8 - Creed Jardin D´Amalfi ---------> 8.68 ***
    9 - Creed Aventus --------------> 8.67 *
    10 - Hermes Hermessence Ambrè Narguille -------> 8.67 **

    ...

    21 - Amouage Reflection Man -------> 8.57 **


    Bottom line: Aventus is an amazing fragrance. Reflection Man, somehow, begun to disappoint me the more I worn it. I do think you should test both, though. If I would have to choose, I´d go for Aventus.

    Reflection Man for me, by a wide margin. Actually, it's not even worth making a comparison.

    No contest. Scent, compliments, longevity, projection, originality, etc. If I were Aventus, I would be offended at the question.

    I think you'd be crazy to buy either before smelling them. Just because I think Reflection Man is awesome doesn't mean you'll agree. Parfums Raffy is a great place to pick up 2.5 ml Amoauge samples on the cheap. Go for it! Give it a few wears before you decide. I've gotten more good feedback from women when wearing Reflection Man, but I haven't bought a bottle yet. I own Aventus and really enjoy it... but for some reason, I don't feel excited to wear it often. It's not one of my most complimented.

    Aventus easily. I really dislike Reflection.

    I'll be in the minority, but as much as I love Aventus, I have gotten better feedback from the girls in my life (mid 20s) with Reflection.

    Reflection Man for me (although I'm not crazy about it), at least it has some substance and longevity to it.
    Aventus is nothing more than a glorified nouveau riche sport fragrance. A safe watery pale calone and pineapple,
    big whoop.

    Strange to compare them, they're both so different. Aventus is superior in terms of quality and composition for me. That said, Reflection is pleasant in its own way, although not something I want to wear much.

    I try both. While Aventus smells so easy to like and very popular, Reflection is more unique and special. Reflection gets my vote.
