The Aventus perfume is one of the world’s most popular male scents. It’s not surprising; the combination of oak moss, ambergris, fruity apple and blackcurrant are distinctive and powerful.
If you’re a fan of the original but can’t stretch to the price-tag, here’s more information about our top quality ‘copycat’ version.
Our alternative – the facts
- Inspired by Aventus cologne
- Top notes of bergamot and blackcurrant, plus apple and pineapple
- Central notes of jasmine blossom and patchouli, with a hint of rose
- Depth added with ambergris, oak moss and vanilla
Wear this if you like your aftershave:
Inspired by the original, our alternative version highlights the following key flavours:
Fruity – pineapple, blackcurrant and apple. Strong, fresh and tangy.
Floral – all the musky, masculine scents, like jasmine blossom and patchouli. Think sultry and high-impact, not feminine.
Sensual – ambergris and oak moss are both woody, opulent aromas.
Our homage to Aventus perfume – what to expect
With the first spray, you’ll instantly pick up the fresh tang of fruit, combined with the complexity of bergamot. Give it a while to settle on the skin, then smell again. You’ll notice the other ingredients coming to the foreground; like the woody scent of oak moss and the punch of patchouli.
After an hour or so, the elements combine to create an overall effect that’s zesty, fresh and invigorating. This isn’t a fragrance for lazy Sunday afternoons; it’s designed for men who are on the go. Throughout the day, the scent mellows into a refined, masculine blend. This is ideal if you’re heading out for a night on the town after work.
When to wear it?
Our version of Aventus perfume is versatile and made for men who lead varied, flexible lives. It’s got enough potency to command attention in the office, but also enough sophistication to complement an intimate meal with your partner.
We’d recommend it as a day-to-night fragrance that is great for special occasions.
Why is it different?
No-one wants a scent that’s just like every other aftershave out there. Aventus fragrance is known for being immediately recognisable, and our alternative is the same. The ‘difference’ is:
- The zesty hit of pineapple. Not many aftershaves use pineapple, which is an oversight, as it complements aromatic scents like bergamot to perfection.
- The vanilla. In a male eau de parfum, vanilla should be subtle, otherwise it can be sickly-sweet. Our Aventus alternative features just a hint of vanilla, which counterbalances the woody, masculine scent of oak moss.
- The tang of blackcurrant. Again, this isn’t an obvious ingredient for a male perfume, but it works excellently. It’s fruity without being saccharine and is surprisingly sensual.
Who is our alternative Aventus cologne for?
The original fragrance is associated with exclusivity, hence the designer price. However, don’t make the mistake of thinking that this eau de parfum is only suitable for city-slickers. It’s such a complex, varied scent that it works for most men.
Most will appreciate its no-nonsense, attention-grabbing aroma in a workplace setting. Likewise, if you’re spending an evening in a stylish bar or club, our fragrance will certainly fit in. Even better, it won’t wear off if you’re planning to dance the night away.
In terms of its potency, it’s perhaps better suited to work or occasions, rather than laid-back days with the family. If you were looking to treat yourself for a special event, like a wedding or anniversary celebration, this would be a great option to choose.
