    Default looking for alternative to - Armaf Club De Nuit Intense Man? any suggestions please (creed aventus)

    this is a clone and previous iterations of this brand have been quite nice, but last bottle i recieved smelt different - so looking for an alternative which is similar to Armaf

    i think this is an excellent creed clone - so suggestions please? As i can't afford the original

    There are apparently significant batch issues with the Armaf clones, which is very amusing to me. In this respect, if nothing else, they follow after Creed.

    What's your budget?

    I find Al Haramain L'Aventure to be even better than CDNIM, especially in the opening. As to what one is closer to Aventus, I do not know. Montblanc Explorer has been getting pretty good reviews, but I have yet to give it a sniff.

    Another for Montblanc Explorer.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I find the opening of Explorer to be a chemical horrorshow, but it's well-liked by some respectable noses on here.

    Yeah, opening in Explorer is a bit weird - I smelled tester in a store and opening was terrible, but a minute or two it settled down. I received a sample and opening is smooth there. Looks like batch issues, lol
    Regarding topic - why don't you buy a decant of Aventus?
    You can get 30ml on Split Board for something like 70 EUR, if not less

    Zara Vibrant Leather edp

    Doesn't last long, but isn't as offensive as so many of these.

    Morning Chess - Vilhelm Perfumerie

    By the same perfumer as above. Supposedly a very good approximation. No idea if that's the case or not.

    Vintage Pineapple Intense - Parfums Vintage

    If you're tired of screwing around with fruity Aventus clones and want an overdose of smoky pineapple this is it. Synthetic, of course, but not so offensive as some of the lamer clones.
