Just Buy the New MontBlanc Explorer, you can get 60ml on ebay with the code PRICECUT15 for £27 incl delivery. Will be of much better quality than that cheap thing.

I went in to LV to give cactus garden a go. Wasn’t impressed by any of the new ones to be honest

Zara Vibrant Leather is a much better alternative IMO

No longevity mate. The new one with Oud is quite nice though. But again Zara won't use the qulaity of ingredients that MontBlanc will use.

What the fuck is going on with this Aventus madness, Aventus facebook groups comparing batch codes and shit, kid at work is buying big bottles to decant and sell to pay for his own Laughing out loud out of the Creeds I've tried it's the worst one, it smells like pineapple juice ffs Laughing out loud

It’s how long they last and smell that differs for each batch made, which is why people are keen to pick up the right one.

To a lot of people(who think they know about fragrance) Creed seems to be the highest standard, and Aventus is the most commonly known so it’s peoples first go on expensive fragrance. That’s what I’ve found in my area anyway. Got lads spending £200 on a bottle and they live in their mums spare room at 26.

Just to add I’m no expert at all.

Plus a shout to Bails who put me on to some great facebook groups for sorting good samples of potential buys Cool

Meant to be shite from all the reviews I’ve seen, just stick to the normal version if that’s the smell you’re after.

I have about 15ml left of my bottle. Use it for work now as it bores me a bit.
