Thread: Aventus

  1. #1

    Default Aventus

    Do you sometimes feel that Aventus, while an extremely nice and lovely scent, is somewhat like a scent that Gillette would make? For me my Gillette Cool Wave deodorant smells a lot like Aventus' dry down. I'm not bashing it at all, I love Avenuts; it's one of my top colognes, but there does seem to be a similarities.

    Personally have never felt that way about Aventus.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    End times my friend. Surely you have been stocking firearms and tinned foods in preparation?
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.
