    ALEX TORRES on Jan 08, 2019

    I wore this to lunch on, Sunday the 6th of January. After sitting us down the waitress came back and said...Sir if you don't mind me asking what are you wearing? Ten minutes passed and a customer came to our table and asked the same thing. I told him it's DUA's version of Creed Aventus 2011 batch. WOW!!! This gentleman immediately said, yes!!! That is what I'm smelling. He said that after 2011 Creed was not allowed to add a certain ingredient that caused Aventus to change totally. He stood there and spoke to us for 5min. He was really knowledgeable regarding fragrances. I gave him the link to DUA. He said, as soon as you passed our table, my girlfriend said, oh my God he smells amazing!!! So I had to come ask. This fragrance is beyond amazing!!! DUA hits it out of the park, AGAIN!!!
    That kind of sh* only happens in someone's fantasy

    Pssshh! That's nothing.

    One time I went to a friend's funeral for her grandfather. Admittedly, I got there about 20 minutes late because I don't know how to tie a tie, but did my best and sprayed myself (just half a spray, mind you, because this stuff is nuclear!) with some DUA Poseidon's Elixir 11Z. So driving over there, I had to roll my windows down and pop the sunroof to help air out and tame the scent. But I noticed in my rearwiew mirror a chain of about 4 cars following me turn for turn, highway exit after highway exit. So I pulled over, tore off my black Tom Ford suit jacket, rolled up my sleeves to my forearms exposing my veiny, ripped muscles and was ready to throw down some good ol' fashioned road rage.

    Walking up to the first car (they all stopped and pulled over like I did) I noticed a gorgeous woman rolling down her window for me. I went to punch her anyway, when she stopped me and asked me what fragrance I wearing. So I told her "DUA Posei..." and she interrupted me: "I love DUA! Their Inspired Expressions are so much better than Creed!!" She went on to tell me that the reason she and the other cars were following me was because of my sillage. I looked back at the other drivers to confirm, and they all clapped. I took a bow, invited them to the funeral to bask in my scent cloud and moonwalked back to my car.

    Walking into the funeral service, I made sure to enter through a door located near the back of the room so as not to disturb everyone with my tardiness. Stealthfully and with a humble step, I entered and took my seat. The four people from the cars behind me followed me in as well. At that point, the pastor inhaled deeply and stopped his sermon to look in my direction. Everyone in the room turned around in their seats to do the same, smiling and nodding in appreciation of my scent of the day.

    The corpse in the casket even sat up and asked, "DUA?"

    Then everyone cheered.

    Let's actually sit back and fathom that there's a slight chance 'ALEX TORRES' actually, truthfully wrote that comment.......................... nah

    - - - Updated - - -

    I mean it's not a bad fragrance, it's good in it's own right but the claim that it's as good as 11Z01 or even Aventus is a stretch.

    Err....... I have a bottle of` DUA's 11Z coming in any day now.

    I've put them off for the longest of time merely for the fact that they were replicators.
    But something in me made me #JustDoIt.... And I purchased 2 packages of their fragrances. One package, with the 11Z should be in any day soon and the other package would be in, in a week's time. Hope I will make for somewhat decent reviewer once these are in, as I have got all the years Aventus batches with me... still. Let's see.

    Edit: To add, I've had several exchanges with Dua following my purchases and shipment. These were all responded to in timely manner and positively.

    Okay, its been half a day since I got the bottles and my impression of the DUA Poseidon 11Z isn't that positive. Yes it smells rather similar to the vintage Aventus, okay overall, but there is something cloying about the overall composition. Quite bit of synthetic smells going and initial notes were unusual, not what you expect with a fresh spritz of Aventus. You don't get the luxurious feeling. Its not right. Damn. Did have high hopes though.

    Bought these Dua 11z only cause I wanted a Aventus-ish scent to use during sports activities and walking the pooch without having to count the lost dollars with every squirt of authentic Aventus. I guess this clone will do the job for the daily dog walks, grocery runs or hitting the sports hall, so long as these are wide open spaces and risk of people getting too close to you and smell the odd cloyng scent sillaging out of you is low.

    In late to the party but I am going to throw my two cents in:

    Thankfully I didnít overspent on Dua and to satisfy my curiosity I got the 3ml samplers from Smells and Suds. I got both 11z and 13zz. I also have Pineapple Vintage Intense.

    Pineapple Vintage Intense blows both the Dua clones out of the water as an accurate clone of Aventus irrespective of batch likeness. Pineapple Vintage Intense reminds me of the creamy vanilla pineapple batches of Aventus. Dua tried too hard to replicate something that canít be replicated.

    The only company that could ever concievably
    Replicate vintage Aventus is Creed if they ever cared too.

    I also got samplers from Smells&Suds too which is also a part of DUA, I think. But frankly, I feel to date their fragrance oils aren't there yet. It is just as what you expect to get from every other alternative perfumes sellers. Pretty bummed cause I really thought these DUA guys were onto something good. I slept thru the night with 11Z on one arm and another of their replication Rouge 540 extract (Casino Royale Nights) on my other arm and there were times when I had to distance my arms from my nose. Something to do with odd oil base thickness to it.
    Never had such revolt / problems with the authentics. I would say their fragrances are, at best above average, but not worth the high prices they are charging for.

    Thanks for the recommendation Zizzy. I tried DUA out of sheer curiosity. I don't consider it as wasted cash; just an additional few bottles for absolute random use.
    Definitely not going to wear the DUA to invitations or business meetings.

    I am pleased like a full hippo with my Creed Aventus collections from 2010 - 2018

    Day 2: and having another go at the CRNights. Sort of getting wafts of castor oil like scent in between the notes.
    Or some other type of oil for which I do not know the name of. Dry down is not bad to be honest .
    Percentage wise, the scent of CRNights is more similar to the original MFK Extrait than is Poseidon 11Z to original Aventus 11Z01.

    Wore 4 sprays of the Poseidon 11Z to work today and it felt awkward. Maybe its psychological, maybe it is in fact the scent notes..

    If I were to choose the better replica of these two, it will be CRNights over Poseidon11Z .
    But again one would purchase replica fragrances due to the vast price difference of the originals as is with vintage 11Z01.
    It doesn't make sense to buy a replica of the original which is being sold for only a small dip in price to that of the originals ( CRNight / MFK 540 Extrait)
    I will wear the CRNights to work tomorrow and P11z the following day and do a 2nd take.

    I contacted Dua for a few samples to review on my channel.

    I'm still relatively new, less than 500 subs currently.

    Surprisingly they offered to send me out 4 full bottles to review at no cost.

    11Z is one of them.
    I am happy to get free gear but will never offer bias reviews..
    Bottles should arrive this week if anyones interested to see the review after i've worn it for a few days..

    Unfortunately I've never tried the 11 Aventus batches so it wont be a clone comparison review..
