    Well Certainly I dont have that kind of Money to afford a Creed Aventus at that Price, what I meant was, If I did have a big Budget I would have gone for my other Favorites in the list mentioned then spend on Creed. For the Simple Reason I have never smelled it.

    I would rather buy and wear Montblanc Explorer. It's not identical to Aventus but in the same ballpark and much easier to wear.
    Indeed. I also found CDNIM extremely harsh and abrasive. It smells toxic tbh. That is not to say that it does not smell like Aventus at all. It does. It just smells extremely cheap in comparison, which is of course not surprising considering the price. No offense to its devotees. If you get from CDNIM what I get from Aventus, then more power to you. But I would definitely advice against buying blind, and would also suggest to check out Explorer.

    Thank you for the clarification. I would agree that it is too expensive to blind buy Aventus.

    Own and like (the drydown of) CDNI but I do not try to convince myself that it is almost the same as Aventus as it is not!
    It is a non-offensive (drydown that is) fun to go fragrance on its own imo and that is how I use it.
    My Top '11':

    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Antaeus (vtg)
    - Azzaro: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - Armani: AdG Profumo
    - Jacques Bogart: Furyo
    - Guerlain: Héritage (vtg)
    - Thierry Mugler: A*men
    - SA: Al Basel
    - D&G: Pour Homme (vtg)
    - YSL: Kouros (vtg)
    - VC&A: Pour Homme

    I would say it's the best for the price. Bought mine for $30 on Amazon.

    Of the 3 clones I have tried;

    1. Parfums Vintage Emperor EDP
    2. Armaf Club De Nuit Intense Man
    3. Insurrection Pure 2

    The only “clone” I’ve tried that scratches the itch is Rasasi’s Rumz. Is it as good as Aventus? Nope... Is it a pleasant fragrance that gets the job done? It is...

    Pineapple Vintage is another that is well done and worth looking into.
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    I was part of a pre-release review of Pineapple Vintage. I wasn't expecting an exact clone of Aventus, but it came across too synthetic and "lost"... as on it's own it's hard to know what the fragrance is trying to be. "Aventus" is the only explanation. It was a close attempt but failed for me. I returned it.

    Oliver Creed wants your money!

    Personally I'd opt for Tiziana Terenzi's Orion if I want an interesting birxh/pineapple combo. I don't care about to what extent it clones Aventus, it does Aventus better.

    My opinion, of course.

    I would agree about Orion. Thanks for reminding me as I'd forgotten about this one. I sampled it briefly but was very impressed. Not a deliberate Aventus clone, but something I found myself appreciating more than Aventus on that fruity/smoky theme. With all the "Aventus noise," perhaps Orion is the sleeper here.

    Just read up a bit on Orion. It’s interesting. I suppose I would personally have to erase Aventus from my line of thinking and judge it solely on its own character for me to pay. Right or wrong, I inherently disagree with ‘clones’ which aren’t priced lower than a certain amount below the original. Orion reads like a fragrance that’s very well done. If I’m looking for a clone of Aventus, I’m not sure it’s for me. But haven’t gotten curious to test it.

    Try to sample it if you can, maybe get some in a trade, when ordering your next set of samples from on-line retailers, or on your next fragrance boutique visit.

    Armaf Club de Nuit Intense = Creed Aventus = Rasasi Rumz Al Pour Lui = Nishane Hacivat = Montblanc Explorer.

    Differences? Armaf has drier birch base, but all other aspects are similar to Aventus. Aventus pineapple top note is a slight anise green/pineapple note that might be black currant for a unique pineapple/black currant blend opening. Rasasi Pour Lui (Zebra) is lighter in tone pineapple / birch but while it is subtler the scent smells less abrasive, less assertive than Aventus and easier to wear. Explorer doesn't have pineapple at all but goes greener in opening with vetiver after bergamot but also has a dry chypre base with patchouli, cocoa. Explorer uses very unique ingredients that are different in all aspects from Aventus but the effect is similar. Hacivat is stronger pineapple tone initially and a softer dry base than Aventus for a dry pineapple unique Aventus like perfume.

    I think these are all about equal in quality and sometimes I like one or the other more but that changes. I own all of these, but I am sure there are other excellent clones of this style.

    80%-90% close enough to actual Aventus. If you are just looking for the general waft smell of Aventus, get CDNI.....if you want to dive in and highly scrutinize and start analyzing Aventus and batches, and clones, and determining what price points are fair, etc.....then it may be a long costly journey

    The truth is that the two fragrances can easily be distinguished from people with experience in perfumery. But, for the average person who is not a specialist, the two fragrances become the same and they do not differ from people whose passion is not perfume (except for the first 30 minutes). Almost everyone says that these are the same scents.
    Yesterday, I received a batch 01/2020 Club De Nuit Intense, I have a sample from 2018 of Aventus. I sprayed both my wrists, and an hour later I showed them to my friends who are not perfume specialists, they were adamant that it was the same. For me, there is a difference, but obviously most people do not find one. The other thing that makes an impression is that the longevity of a perfume that is ten times cheaper is better.

    Armaf's copy is an awful perfume, I honestly hate the opening, Aventus too is so overpriced, the higher quality older batches of Aventus were sold for roughly %30 of the current price but now... well the demand, hype and marketing is there so why not charge as high as people are willing to pay...

    The Montblanc copy is a great one, Royal Vintage's copy is a great citrus copy (unlike the awfully done citrus in Armaf), Orion is an smoky copy, Hacivat is a fruity copy, all come with great quality and reasonable prices that aren't yet influenced by being "the most verbally advertised perfume"...
