Creed Aventus: The King of Fragrance and it’s many Aventus Clones

Every now and then a fragrance comes around that quite simply changes the game, becoming an instant classic.

What makes a scent stand apart from the rest? Well, that largely depends on each person and their individual taste; however, an exceptional aroma that is suitable for any season, fits any occasion and works in any place is often a good indicator!

Creating a scent that can achieve such high expectations is no easy feat; although, if anyone could do it, it would be The House of Creed. Producing the absolute reigning champion since 2010, Creed’s legendary “Aventus” is still the ultimate titleholder. Delightfully unique, easygoing, and impossible not to enjoy, Aventus has become a favorite amongst just about anyone who comes across it.

It is no wonder this gem has many admirers, after all this rich-fruity fragrance is curated with the finest ingredients by one of our oldest, most celebrated perfume houses. Fresh, masculine, and incredibly sexy, Aventus smells like success and it has the price tag to match.

We know Creed is costly and so we found several alternative colognes that smell a lot like Aventus but they won’t break the bank!

To smell like “The King of Colognes” one must have a comparable scent profile, similar notes, and shared ingredients:
Top: Bergamot, Blackcurrant Leaves, Apple, Pineapple
Mid: Pinkberries, Birch, Patchouli, Jasmine
Base: Musk, Oakmoss, Ambergris, Vanilla




Scent: Fruity | Woody | Citrus   -   Price Point: $$$$


Aventus by Creed is an exceptionally dynamic fragrance that can cater to all our needs. It has become an ageless masterpiece, an icon, admired by all and seemingly- dare I say- perfect?! It might just be, because so far, it can do no wrong!

It is said that Aventus was inspired by the thrilling (and rather dramatic) life and times of the historic French leader; Napoleon Bonaparte who has been famously known for his strength, vision, power and success in war, peace and of course, a little romance! To celebrate these thrilling characteristics, Oliver Creed in collaboration with his son Erwin Creed created this special blend and thankfully, introduced it to the rest of the world in 2010.

Juicy fresh and fruity sweetness accompanied by a subtle cedar and leather undertone that creates an irresistible, rich musky masculine thrill. Aventus has become the best-selling fragrance from The House of Creed and it is a legend of our times!

Club de Nuit Intense by Armaf is the clone we feel most represents the original Aventus, it is also the most popular choice in terms of clones. The opening is very strong and somewhat offensive initially, but the dry down has the expected smokiness that seems necessary for this fragrance. This option also has the essential sweetness that comes from the vanilla while it remains bright and fruity from those citrusy top notes. Club de Nuit Intense has the same progression as Aventus and has excellent performance, which is why it’s our first choice for an inexpensive alternative!

Select by Mercedes-Benz is not from a clone house and perhaps was not meant to be a clone at all, though the fragrance was likely inspired by Aventus. Sharing many of the qualities in the original DNA, such as fruity, sweetness and citrus top notes, but does not have any smokiness or pineapple. The bergamot, black current blend creates a juicy (almost pineapple) essence which creates that opening freshness making this scent a solid modern alternative to the coveted original combination.

Explorer by Mont Blanc is less of a clone and more of an alternative option. This scent is a fresh and modernized twist on the Aventus profile. With woody undertones, citrus crispness, and the leathery masculinity – Explorer is easy to wear, super versatile and adds a simplified, contemporary element to the fragrance. Explorer is a more linear choice, though the projection is strong, and the blend is very enjoyable it does not have the same depth as Aventus; which makes it comparable, though it remains a unique designer fragrance.

HTTP by Bond No.9 represents the digital district in New York City and is not necessarily an Aventus clone however it does have many similarities. The opening is quite reminiscent of the Creed classic however this niche alternative is a sweeter iteration and does not have the smokey-leather elements. Though it does have a musky dry down that keeps the fragrance potent with the masculine intrigue that we expect from Aventus.

Hacivat by Nichane is a greener, more citrus induced version of the Aventus blend. With a tart citrusy opening and an aquatic freshness in the dry down period- this scent could almost be completely different, however because of the pineapple flavor and cedarwood mid notes, the scent ends up becoming quite reminiscent of the original Aventus. This is a great choice is you’re looking to try a brighter more watery rendition of this fragrance profile.
