    Default Now I know what is my problem with Aventus

    Yes , Aventus is still my most complimented fragrance, but it was always a 9/10 fragrance to me, and that is because the sour vibe that it has. I tried othes batches , including the famous z01 , but the sourness was always there bothering me . I think aventus would be perfect if it was creamier. Any ideas of a fragrance that has the aventus vibe, but creamier?

    Never experienced a sour vibe as you have. Interesting.

    Perhaps try Cedrat Boise by Mancera.

    If you still wanna wear it spray it on your clothing, Aventus does great on clothing and lasts well too.

    Hi,
    You are not alone with your issue, most people like Aventus for it's drydown.
    The solutions have been said before.
    A/ Mancera Cedrat Boise has heavier fruity ( especially blackcurrant ) notes, therefore it has sweeter top notes
    B/ Wear it on fabric instead of your skin. Lasts longer and smells better. This is how I wear most of my fragrances. This works extremely well with Cedrat Boise, the drydown lasts for at least a week..
    C/ Try Afnan Supremacy Silver. May not be as strong as Aventus but on me it's almost identical and there's no sign of the sour, crisp notes at the beginning.

    you need a vanilla heavy batch like 16A01, not sour at all.

    and co-sign Cedrat Boise is what you're looking for, much more creamy than Aventus.
