TheTiger wrote: Eden Aventis 30ml - no guesses for what this is trying to do. Smells exactly like Mont Blanc Explorer (another known Aventus clone), minus the performance. Bit of an impulse buy, and will probably not get a ton of wear.

Have been cycling through the cheapies whilst in lockdown and thought i'd update on this. Perhaps I under sprayed the last time I tried it as I'm wearing this today and 7 hours later it's smells just as strong as it did after an hour.

However, looking at the website looks like they have jacked up the prices of a few of their best sellers which they only sell as parfum concentration (20-30%) so the performance on that one might even be better than this.

The clone of Tom Oud Mineral is really good, got more compliments on it than anything I’ve worn before.

I see Eden have bumped up the price of the Aventus clone and rebranded it. I wonder if they've made it better. The bottle I have seems nice but doesn't last long at all.

I ordered that and the baccarat rouge 540 copy, didn’t like the latter but I’ve since found I don’t like the authentic 540 either Laughing out loud Others on here have said the Virgin Island Water clone is good.

Yeah the Eden Virgin Island Water is sound for a summer beater. Or go for the VIW killer and get the Simone Andreoli Malibu which is a fuckin summer beast!


Still haven’t got my smell or taste back from the 29th March after being ill. Killing me not knowing how good I smell every day.

Yeah I wear sumet every day normally. Was trying to het through all my samples but only going for a couple of sprays now as I like smelling myself and can’t properly so no point wasting them.

i like smelling nice too, but if I’m just sitting watching Netflix at home I wouldn’t waste any scents, especially since most of yours are expensive it comes across as a bit of a waste, how much you go through a month 50-100 ml?

Nah no way that much. I’d probably say it’s about a ml a day. I mostly use cheapies or samples if I’m at home or work. I only wear the more expensive stuff if I’m actually going out somewhere.

I mostly decant them in to smaller 6ml atomisers as well as I store my bottles in the loft. All different colours so I know what’s in what then keep them in my sock draw. So it’s easier to then know how much I’m going through.

The old me would have bought 2 more bottles of the Verano that’s on offer but I’m trying to use bottles up now before buying more. Especially whilst losing money due to the virus.
