What We're Looking For In A Creed Clone

If you're reading this then you're probably a fan of Creed Aventus, we all are, but let's be real, £300 for a single bottle is a little bit steep for most wallets. 

So, what are we looking for in a good Creed Aventus Clone, well firstly we need it to smell the part, that means that it needs to hit the right scent balance, otherwise it's not creed aventus. After that we're expecting it to be a genuine eau de parfum, that means that it should be stronger than a cologne or eau de toilette, meaning it should last for at least 8 hours. 

The creed smell has become something of an icon and perhaps something of a mark of status, so it wouldn't do for it to wear off half way through the evening and some of the lesser aventus clones will do just that. The good news is we've found three options that are honestly as good as the original meaning you can wear creed aventus, without breaking the bank.

How Long Does Creed Aventus Last?

A legitimate spray of creed aventus should last for at least 8 hours, usually all night or all day, although it obviously depends where you put it, your skin type, etc. But in general as an eau de parfum, you'd expect it to last this long. Most creed aventus clones will not last this long.

Why is Creed Aventus So Expensive?

The long and short of it is that Creed Aventus is made in a relatively small perfume house in France. They stick to traditional methods. And whilst it's good that they've avoided licencing the name out to low tier manufacturing, that has meant that the fragrance can be reproduced in other high end, high fidelity facilities at a fraction of the cost.

Is Fake Creed Aventus Any Good?

Fake aventus is generally bad, as are most fakes, in short don't buy a creed aventus clone if it comes in a bottle that actually looks like a creed aventus bottle.

The Best Creed Clone For Men - Inspired By Aventus

Aside from the fact that copycat fragrances option comes in at one sixth of the price of creed aventus and the bottle doesn't look quite as good, nobody is likely to ever tell the difference between this and the creed signature scent. It hits the same notes, the staying power is arguably better and we couldn't recommend it highly enough. 

It hits the scent profile perfectly, far better than any other aventus clone we've tried. And we've tried a lot, creed's expensive after all.

Keep in mind copycat don't do fake creed aventus, there is a difference, anything marketed as fake aventus is generally very poor quality as it's operating illegally. An inspired by aventus clone is not the same thing "wink wink". 

It may smell identical, matching the citrus top, woody middles, and so on, but as they're not infringing copyright they're able to produce it in high end facilities.

Creed Aventus Clone Conclusion

By far the very best Creed Aventus clone that we've come across is copycat fragrances eau de parfum "inspired by aventus" the naming is perhaps a bit on the nose, and honestly we're almost surpirsed that they got away with it. 

But, long and short is, it smells like creed aventus, it lasts as long as creed, honestly nobody is going to know you're not wearing creed. 

We gave it copycat's executive aventus clone 5* for closeness to the original and staying power, the customer satisfaction scored incredibly high and honestly we couldn't find anything to fault with this. The notes all high right, whether it be the begamot and pinapple sweet tops down to the musky base, this really is an all round great product.
