So, I like lists. I don't even care that much about Aventus or the fragrances 'inspired by'. But, I want to optimize the information available. Below you can see the fragrance, the year released, the composite 'grade' and the number of votes all from Fragrantica).

Please let me know what I am missing so that I can compile all in one place.

Thoughts?

Others missed are:

Dua Supernova
Junaid Jamshed Janan Gold
Lattafa Al-Dur al-Maknoon Silver
I-Mirage 23 by IO-KO
Roja Elysium

- - - Updated - - -

We should make one for MFK BR540

Thank you oudaddict. Yes, Parfums Vintage does pose a challenge. I thought I would add the most reviewed. I will revisit. Thank you for highlighting others. I will add them.

One question.. I considered a Roja Elysium but didn’t include. Is this considered an ‘inspired by Aventus’ fragrance?

Side note, I see you are from Manchester. I just finished watching All or Nothing on Amazon. They followed Man City and Pep G. Great show.

It definitely is "inspired" by Aventus or at least jumps on the Aventus bandwagon and popularity, of course, Roja will never admit it.

Lol, I'm actually a Manchester United fan.

- - - Updated - - -

I noticed Office for Men is on the list? I would have thought it to be more Sauvage-inspired rather than Aventus.

I meant to write Dua Poseidon's Elixir instead of Supernova (Supernova is the Elysium clone). They have a few iterations of various batches too.

Also Alexandria Fragrances Brasilia and Milton Lloyd No. 9 Victor can be added.

Will add these. I don’t see Poseidon’s elixir in Fragrantica. I can still add with out info. I have no idea on office for men. I saw some mention that it was a clone. I have never smelled.

Based on my casual understanding, being a Man United fan has been good over the years. Like the Yankees of the premier league. I have been a fan of the Cincinnati Bengals in the NFL my entire life. I am just happy when they have a winning record.

And what is funny is there is only one Aventus, tip your cap and give your dues, you'll save money in the long run by avoiding this laundry list.

Can you buy a 2010 version? It was amazing

Laboratory's Amber and Vilhelm's Morning Chess are similar (to current version)

2010-2018 Aventus is banned by IFRA in the EU. There have been over 5 major ingredient bans/restrictions since then, for most major fragrances. 2011 had the most regarded batch known (11z01) and 2012 had the best smoky batches.

I wonder if they could put a warning label on it they can sell it, like nicotine products, we addicts need our fill

IFRA don't ban, they are just an advisory board, it's the EU that bans.

That's interesting, it was released in the 80s. Perhaps Aventus is the clone? Is this the EDP version or the EDT, or both?

I'm talking about the 2018 version in a black bottle. A dark and long lasting Aventus clone.

By the way another fragrance to add into the list is Mercedes Benz Select which is quite popular because of the price and availability at department stores.

I'd say the only fragrance in this collection that smells 'like' modern Aventus is Insurrection II Pure, it smells like crap but it smells 'like' modern Aventus. CDNIM has a more generic citrus top but it also kind of resembles facets of vintage Aventus and smells pretty good but pales in comparison to the OG. So if you wanna save money (and time) just buy Aventus or CDNIM and you'll remain happy.

DUA Remixed MOD 3. A dead on clone of Aventus more than all of their other clones. This one is 100% to my nose.


Update... On second wear.. It really isn't that good for an aventus clone. It must have changed. Weird

Agree. That's ambroxan type of scent, but it doesn't really remind of Aventus.

Bond no 9. Scent of peace for him ( has absolutely no resemblance to Aventus whatsoever, on any level. It smells like Montblanc. Yuck

Daytona 10 Panama 1924 is one of the best Aventus clones on the market. Heck it stands out on its own. Surprised not mentioned. My men’s salon/barber carries it

Mazzolari Nero-

Natural and closest thing I have found to Aventus. After the opening, the rest break down into a gremlin doused in h20.
