    Default Best Aventus clone

    I've tried the one in the black bottle and it's close aside from the lemon opening. Anything out there better? I'm not insane enough to pay $400+ for the real thing.

    Should this subject matter be kept to the relevant sub-forum?

    Anyhow, Atelier Cologne - Musc Imperial is probably the best "clone" for my money.

    Discounters my friend and reputable eBay sellers have deep price cuts that make it affordable. The splits forum has splitters, this subject can go on and on but until they use the quality ingredients that Creed does your wasting your time. If you want clones fine but the real thing can never be replicated all fail because the quality ingredients and formula is not up to Creed’s standards.

    When it comes to fragrances I don’t want corners cut, I want them as the creators meant them to be. I won’t deny this hobby is expensive, but to me well worth it when you enjoy it and a bottle keeps giving each wearing. In summary money well spent to me, if the fragrance delivers I will spend the money on it with no regrets.

    I also go to the splits board, some of them will decant for you prices that dont add up to even half the price of a full bottle. I dont know how they can decant and not lose money.

    They are all crap, some moreso than others and there isn't one on the market that captures the essence of Aventus let alone come even 80% of the way there in creating a reasonable facsimile. Ultimately it all depends on your nose though...

    I have Aventus, Lomani Spirit Silver and Zara Vibrant Leather. Very little difference to my nose other than Aventus being the weakest of the 3 on my skin.

    Get in on a split here on Basenotes. I think that's the best route.

    Panama 24 Daytona 10. I like this one a lot. Not cheap but not as expensive as Aventus

    Any of its batch variations I guess. Creed is pioneer even in copying itself.

    Adnan B. Noir is as much an Aventus clone as Mancera Cedrat Boise which is possibly 70% similar, I wouldn't call it a clone however. There are in fact no clones that capture the essence of Aventus and I've tried them all basically.

    Mostly agree with this.

    There are some that are nice, but they are all lacking. Some just a little off (Club de Nuit Intense, Insurrection Pure II) , some really horrible (Fresco, Poseidon's Elixir, etc.). And a lot that aren't really "clones", but are highly inspired by Aventus.

    I have a decant of cedrat boise and it is a VERY nice fragrance. It's not Aventus though. In my opinion it's not even close. It smells like fruity pebbles with a bit of leather and tons of very sweet vanilla. It is far to sweet for me to wear though. Dont buy it thinking it is anything like Aventus please. It's in the same family but it is NOT a clone at all. Al Haramain smells great and last a long time but goes a bit plasticky late in the dry down and it is not sweet. Honestly, not one of them smell just like Aventus. You must try Pineapple Vintage Intense. If you want something similar to Aventus it is required that you sample it. It is very high quality in my opinion, better then the rest of the clones, or similar ones. Once again its not Aventus, but damn it is good in and of itself. Get a decant off of Ebay though cause the samples I got from pineapple vintage came leaking and damaged.

    For me, it would be Zara Gold (the original one in the round, gold container).

    The best clone is the one you don’t buy.

    Just get yourself a 10 ml decant of the real stuff and scratch that itch good and proper.

    I have tried a lot of clones and I'd have to say that the best clone is the real one. Get a decant and save yourself trouble, by the time you can finally get a close enough clone you'd probably spend a lot of time and money that are close to getting the real deal.

    Go with pineapple vintage. The hype for DUA has been exposed as baseless many times .
