L'aventure by Al Haramain Eau De Parfum Spray (L'aventure 3.3 oz)
About this deal
The atomizer sits low on the bottle and releases the fragrance in a wide cone, which ends up spraying the edge of the bottle. I purchased L'Adventure about two or three weeks ago based on all the positive reviews I have seen and read.
and the funny thing is, it performed well when I first bought it in winter, at least for the first couple of days. Although not strictly necessary I dab just the tiniest bit of pinapple essence on my inner wrists before applying and in this way nail the earlier fruiterer batches of Aventus. take Creed's Aventus, use lemony notes instead of smokey pineapple, and woody/nutty notes instead of a leathery birch note, and you pretty much have L'Aventure; a fresher take on the famed Aventus DNA, minus the spicy notes that some dupes have.After an hour of a headache inducing smell I washed a fragrance off my skin for the first time ever. We've made a reservation by phone for the lunch of the 25th of december (Christmas lunch) that we had to cancel. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.
I honestly had no idea what Aventus was other than a subtle mention or two on here which went in one ear out the other. I don’t want to be dishonest in my review and be like everyone else saying how great this is, and not mean it. Starting out, this strikes me as being both closer to Aventus than CDNI in some ways, and further away in others.However, it's a little too musky on my skin and so I only wear it when I know I'll be out of the house for a while, so no not really great in lockdown. I can start out by saying that I love Aventus and I’ve been on tear lately looking for more affordable soloitions. I'm not the biggest fan of the first 30 minutes (I can smell some lemon pledge chemical stuff, especially from too close) but the dry down (and the more it dry the better it smells) is a great clone of Aventus. The biggest drawback to this vs Aventus is the harsh top notes but It won’t bother you if you don’t stick your nose to it right away and it won’t smell that way to others so just spray and go.
After wearing it a few days after purchasing it I was initially unimpressed, as to my nose it smelled exactly like CDIM.But there's no point to it because in just a few minutes this will be gone and you'll only have the CDNIM. Loads of compliments, so good enough projection to be picked up walking around and being in the same room as others. Went ahead and bought this one and the Armaf one as those were the clones people say were the closest to CA. It has a tinge of mould, probably from the musk, but it's tied in with something bitter (not the zesty fruit).
