    Default Club De Nuit Intense projection?

    i was planning on blind buying CDNI but i keep reading that the new formulations don't last at all,
    is it not worth it anymore? anyone has a new bottle and can share their thoughts?

    I would agree that the newer bottles don't seem as strong but there is not much in it. To my nose they smell exactly the same and I would describe the current projection as decent and noticeable.

    I purchased my bottle a few months ago from Giftexpress.com and I get good performance from the juice... Definitely lasts on clothes for quite a while, but I don't trust the chemical bomb on my skin, so I have no experience on skin performance...

    I use it differently. Since CDNI is supposedly a clone of Aventus, I treat it as such. BUT Insurrection II Pure allegedly is also. I don't see the connection, but I don't have the Creed.
    People say the pineapple is the lacking note. CDNI x2 then I2P x1 brings it out.
    At times I will start with a very light hit of 3% home batch pineapple fragrance.
    The other option is start with homebrew 25% Iso E Super. Extended longevity and projection
    Lots of options and variations for the situation. Total less than $70-80.

    Projection is pretty good IMO.

    Seems plenty strong to me, but for $30 or whatever it costs just spray more if you really want to draw attention to yourself.

    I bought CDNI from Amazon and I dont know if my Bottle is fake or not but I have the Black sprayer. The Performance is really weak no projection at all and there is no pineapple in it. I have Creed Aventus 18B01aswell and the differnce is so big. 230€ for Creed Aventus is worth in my opinion.

    I have no experience with Club de Nuit Intense, but if someone's looking for a reasonably strong scent in the ballpark of Aventus, then I'd suggest Morning Chess. It's quite nice, more sharp and leathery.

    My first from Amazon was fine. Properly marked, chrome sprayer, etc.
    I bought another for my son. This came from an Amazon warehouse in NJ. Not the "A" box or tape, black sprayer, internal black flap not attached. The other clue was the production codes printed partly off the label-- box and bottle.
    It said returnable, then CS said no. When i explained it was fake, they said your it out and they refunded.
    I am guessing even Amazon has no clue what they buy and pass as real .

    It's not about drawing attention, i'm talking about longevity..
    i just bought Dior Homme Intense after sampling it in a store and i rememebered reading that it lasted for a long time and projected well.
    mine becomes a skin scent after 30 mins, i have no idea if i'll ever use it again..

    Also i was planning to buy from fragrancex anyone purchased it from there recently? If it lasts atleast for a few hours i'm ok with it

    I bought 2 bottles from Amazon a couple months ago. Was lucky enough to get the old formulation bottle in 1 of those purchases. The new stuff has a nicer smell in my opinion, but it is WEAK. I'll spray like 8 times, and in 2 hours my co-workers can BARELY detect it. I've tried spraying onto tank-top undershirt, but there seems to be very little projection and silage. Huge shame because I absolutely love the scent.

    I bought it in the end i thought i'd let u know.
    it's a skin scent that lasts 4 hours max on me, i tested it for a few days.
    i used two sprays for the gym and it hardly projects, i think it's just gonna be a gym scent from now on.
    i got a batch from 06/2018 it's made in france.

    Definitely the problem you have is your nose, give it a rest for a few weeks with out using any frags at all.
    It happened to me and a few weeks of not using any frags did work perfect I gues sometimes we need a total reset like a pc, too bad we cannot add more memory.........LOL

    Buy Al Haramain L'Aventure instead, much better Aventus clone and no knock offs.

    Projection per the topic.
    I do a couple of things with CDNI. Sometimes all; sometimes one.
    A pre-spray of 10% IES. Homemade using ethanol.
    A pre-spray of 4-5% pineapple. Restores it to the Aventus pineapple level and masks some lemon.
    Two sprays per place with CDNI. When dry, light sprays of Insurrection II Pure.

    I agree. much much better then CDNI.
    To my nose, compared to CDNI, L'aventure actually feels like aventus. only comparing to real aventus you can sense it's inferiority.

    It is super super strong. and to me, that's the problem. cos it's to synthetic,powdery ughhhh.. (compared to eventus or even L'aventure).

    So CDNI has always been Aventus like for me, and I enjoy it very much. Today I found out that it must project fairly well too! I wore three sprays today and the cashier at TJ Max said “you smell really good” from about 4 ft away. I’m one that never really gets too many unsolicited compliments from strangers (maybe 8-10) in the past 6 years total, and I don’t believe that some other people get bunches as they claim. But I do believe that Aventus is a scent that probably gets a fair amount of compliments, and seeing as how CDMI garnered me this compliment, I think it’s a good sign of a high quality juice.....imo.

    I own and wear both Aventus and CDNI. I've had far more positive reactions to the Armaf than Aventus. My wife prefers CDNI over Aventus as she says it smells sweeter. I on the other hand, prefer the Creed.

    Hi, what is the production date of your bottle? And after the time from the purchase to today you still find performance and longevity are good?
