    Default Blind buy Club de Nuit Intense?

    I enjoy Aventus quite a bit, not as much as some members here, but still enough for me to consider it as a future purchase. But its price is a bit prohibitive for me right now. So should I try to blind buy Club de Nuit Intense, that some have said to be very similar to Aventus? Where I live, there is no way for me to test it, so the only way is to blind buy it. So I am relying on your opinions!

    It's cheap so go for it. But I would also buy demeter pineapple alongside it. CDNI has a harsh opening and lacks pineapple to my nose. Dries down nicely but if you add a couple of sprays of the demeter and layer these two you get a gorgeous scent. You could also get in on a split of Aventus on here if you want 30ml, for probably the same price as demeter+CDNI 100ml. Believe it or not I've gotten some nice compliments on the combination I mentioned!

    A better option IMO.

    Seemed a lot smokier than Aventus so the Demeter suggestion above could possibly work. A sales rep sprayed this on my hand after I said I enjoy Creed and told me to guess which one it smells like. I easily knew it was Aventus so it's at least very close. I cannot comment on performance though so that could also be an issue. Since it uses slightly cheaper ingredients than Aventus, it also comes off a tad more synthetic than Creed but not terrible.

    Now I'm not implying CDNIM is bad, but if I had "Aventus" I probably wouldn't bother with any "Clone." I have CDNIM and I love it for what it is. No idea what Aventus smells like, but if the "King" has a dry down to that is similar to CDNIM I can understand the hype as it's got this smell I can sniff for days without getting bored. As I stated before though I wouldn't be bothering with it if I enjoyed Aventus as much as I do CDNIM.... Edit: had to comment on demeter pineapple. I have this as well, however when I layer it or have it mixed in a travel atomizer (let it sit for a couple of days before use), I get fatigued to the smokier bit extremely faster than normal. I think this may be the pineapple fragrance interacting with CDNIM, my skin(pH), and\or my nose.

    I have Aventus and CDNIM and CDNIM mimics Aventus, but different on its own accord. Initially the lemon cleaner blast is a bit much, but I don't find it to be as prevalent anymore. The dry down is good. Worth the $20, sure. Don't go thinking it'll replace Aventus though...

    Or you could buy a 90ml bottle of Insurrection Pure II off ebay for 19.00 including shipping.
    98% identical to Aventus, no one will ever be able to tell the difference unless they're a fraghead, and even then I'd love to do a blind smell test in person.

    I don't have that clear a recollection of Aventus that I would use percentages, as so many others do, but I think it's a matter of what you like most about the batch of Aventus you have. CdNIfM has a strong birth/"chemical" element actually enhances it for me, sort of like some sort of niche idea. However, if you asked me about which blatant pineapple scent I preferred right now, I'd say Fresh Pineapple by B&BW. Lapidus Pour Homme also has a pineapple note, but the drydown is more balanced, so I don't register it as a "pineapple scent."

    I don't need something that smells exactly like Aventus, but a similar vibe will suffice, as long as it smells good and can be worn as a versatile daily scent.

    To me, Lomani's AB Spirit Silver is more of a daily/signature scent that CdNIfM, as it's smoother and doesn't have anything like the strong lemon or birth (if that's what it is) of CdNIfM.

    Can someone describe exactly how Club de Nuit Intense smells like without referencing Aventus? Is it aromatic, fruity, aquatic, better for daytime, nighttime, etc?

    I say go for it. If you like Noir De Noir, the women's version is a good clone also.

    In that case, the Lomani would work.

    I hate CDNIM. But many people like it. I don't feel its a safe blind buy even as a fan of aventus. But there is supposedly two versions. I got one that was made in UAE and it was horrible. To each their own though. So far the only aventus like scent I like is Pineapple Vintage. Its definitely more expensive than most clones but the quality justifies the cost. In fact I couldn't tell if my remaining aventus had gone bad as I smelled it the other day and it seemed very heavy in black pepper. Side by side with pineapple vintage I genuinely prefer PV. So I dumped the aventus not trusting it in a swap. No regrets. You can get samples of both PV versions for pretty cheap. Noir is my favorite.

    I'm sure some would have bought it from you versus dumping it. Or even give it away lol. Dang, dumping Aventus, thats a true baller right there.

    Ach just ordered one of these blind to try, atomizer sprayed on first spray, (usually there's a blank spray, semi spray, and then a normal spray) doesn't that mean its been used or played with?

    So not sure if I'm enjoying a "authentic Armaf clone"

    Hate these scammers/thieves/return after use people. Back in the day we'd take these folks out back...

    You'd physically assault somebody for having a spray from a bottle then returning it ?

    Who said anything about assault?

    Execution is what I was talking about!

    In the Middle East where they make this stuff, that's where they go easy on you and just ('physical assault') cut off the hand that stole. What good is that, fellow still has another hand.
    This is America baby! Bigger and better! You execute em, take care of the problem for good.

    What's that saying give a man a fish feed him for a day, teach him how to fish feed him for life! Well there ya go, you don't want that fellow keep fishing in to your colognes now do you

    Not sure what to say to that.
    Normally i'd assume you have an uncompromising and slightly dark sense of humour, but these days i'm not so sure...
