    Creed Aventus by miles ---the best part about this is that people who are not even associated with perfumes or have any particular interest in perfumes get jolted with the smoky Pineapple smell --which is quite distinctive ....I remember my sister who was visiting from US recently ....took one sniff of my Aventus and she was floored .....and she didn't even know something like creed ever existed !
    Dior is more mainstream compared to aventus and doesn't have that differentiated smell ---which sets Aventus apart from any other scent out there ( completely a biased opinion of a newbie nose ) !

    Guess it kind of evens out, considering how hugely popular both fragrances and even aside from comepting with Aventus or not, was still surprised how many compliments Sauvage gets as an absolute figure/value (and not just in relation to/in comparison with any other fragrance contender)

    For me - the same - no compliments that I recall but still enjoy both.
    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.

    Dior Savauge sucks. I'm not a Aventus fan by any means but it wipes the floor with the Dior. If you want to smell like every other guy after Christmas wear the Dior. Lets face it besides this fragrance community the average joe wont run around wearing aventus which means that you will stand out more which in turn raises your chance of getting a "hey you smell good" or a "what are you wearing? "

    That Ambroxan though....Not one of the best releases by Dior but it merits the name, if that makes sense.

    If you regularly read this board, this is a non question if there ever was one. It's like asking a group of bikers "Um, hello. What's better? A Kowasaki or a Harley?

    Doesn't this belong in the pineapple forum?

    btw, I vote Aventus!

    It is true that fish stink. It is also true that the river is
    beautiful. But the river would be beautiful despite the fish. What
    is noxious remains so.

    That is not to say that sh*t is not useful when buried in the wheat
    field. Bread made from the field tastes sweet, wine from the arbor
    sweetest. All things serve a purpose, but that is no reason to
    glorify what is abominable. A man must still watch where he walks
    and keep his sandals clean.

    Sauvage is beating Aventus in the same poll on Fragrantica.

    Just to show that Aventus is nothing more than a Basenotes fad.

    I have no idea about compliments, but Sauvage is way more interesting. If you'll ever get compliments for that, chances are they'll come from someone thinking "out of the box". Aventus smells more crowd-pleasing - more compliments, but more indistinct too.

    I wouldn't call myself a Sauvage hater, but being more distinct than Aventus it is not, lol.

    I recently tried another generic mall scent that pretty much smells like Sauvage. It was Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme.

    From the people in my life, neither. I've received far more compliments from Versace Pour Homme than either of these.

    Heck, my wife's hatred of Sauvage stopped me from even buying a bottle and she just came around on liking Aventus "slightly" more than a $30 knock off I had, but still said she only thought it was "ok".

    Even though I've worn Aventus more than Dior Sauvage (which I borrowed from a friend only once), I received no compliments for Sauvage and many (from both women and men) for Aventus. I personally like Aventus better

    Huh?

    For the people that explicitly answered the question or included a picture, it was 4-3 in favor of Aventus. As with most forums several people did not answer the question and took it as an opportunity to bash either fragrance or diverge into other annoying irrelevancies. Why the hell do so many people have a problem answering a friggin simple question? You have to skip over the non-answers that dealt with which ones they liked or hated. So those are not actually votes and that was not an actual poll. The votes that I counted it was 4-3 in favor of Aventus. But whatever...Both smell good to most people. So they both seem to have the desired affect...so buy either or both

    Well. First off, let me say, I love Creed. One of my favourite houses. I'm of the school of thought that you can't really go wrong with any Creed and I have bought many bottles blind and never once was I truly disappointed.

    I had Aventus.. After a number of wearings I decided it simply wasn't for me. Initially, before I bought it, it didn't really interest me for whatever reaosn, I overlooked it for a long time. But I'd heard about it for so long and finally bought a bottle blind. Initially I was questioning myself.. does this smell amazing? One minute I was like, I think it does.. then no it doesn't.. Or is it just taking a while for me to appreciate it? For days I was torn and really didn't know what to make of it. I've rarely been like that about a fragrance before. I gave it a fair few chances.. Numerous wearings. In the end I felt was somewhat disappointed overall. Don't get me wrong, I found it pleasant enough but I just didn't think it was anything special.. at all. I also got poor longevity and projection from it, although I think slightly better than MI (one of my favourite Creeds). I ended up selling my Aventus on for something else.

    Maybe my expectations about Aventus were too high after reading all the rave reviews and hype about it for so long.. Maybe it was the batch.. Maybe it just didn't work with my skin as some might suggest.. I really don't know, or mind. I just know my experiences with it weren't exactly as pleasant as I expected them to be. Also, more to the point of the question.. I asked numerous female friends and relatives to smell it and give their honest opinion on it, I asked them all if they liked it and pretty much every single one turned their nosed up at it and said "No, if I'm honest, not really..".. I think they were trying to say "No, I hate it" without being too blunt about it, haha. I wouldn't buy it again, personally. But by no means am I saying it's not a good fragrance, at the end of the day it's all subjective and we all like different scents. Our tastes will all differ.

    Haven't tried Dior Sauvage but I'm hoping to in the new future. I've heard some good things about it from my friends, that said they aren't really into fragrances, not in the true sense of the word. But it seems to have alot of mainstream popularity and in my own experience I've always felt women tend to prefer popular, designer fragrances on me over some obscure niche brand.. I wear fragrances for me anyways, never for others. If I love a fragrance a woman hated it, I'd still wear it. Anyways, it's one I have to try out..
