Creed Aventus is one of the most popular cologne in the market currently. The scent is amazing but its price point is definitely for the high street, it’s no wonder so many clones are being developed. Even though they may not 100% replicate Aventus but some have succeeded in being close to Aventus scent.
Let’s look at these 5 best Creed Aventus clones that have succeeded and ended up being as popular as the original.
1.Armaf Club De Nuit Intense man – 95% Smell the Same as Creed Aventus
Looking for the best creed aventus clone with a high-end scent impression but crazily affordable? The Club De Nuit Intense Cologne by Armaf is your best choice. It retails for just a tenth of the Creed aventus price.
Packaged in a beautiful sable rectangular bottle, this cologne has a mix of fruity aromas on the head and base, even though it identifies itself as a woody spicy fragrance.
The top notes range from lime, pineapple leaf, and apple while the base has musk, vanilla, ambergris, and patchouli scents.
The heart notes for this fragrance are Rose, Birch and Jasmine. All these makes it such a romantically appealing scent that lasts all day.
And on the Creed Aventus vs Club de Nuit Intense debate let me just say CDNIM is a great fragrance for a clone but cannot match with the original.
- Beautifully packaged
- Some people complained of the scent being too synthetic
2.Zara Vibrant Leather – 92% Similar to Creed Aventus
Zara Vibrant Leather is one of the best creed aventus clone too. It goes for just less than CDIM, so if you really want a Creed aventus clone but can’t afford it, the Zara Vibrant Leather is your best choice.
It has three notes, Bergamont for the opening note which gives it that citrusy scent, then it slowly moves to a woody scent because of the Bamboo and once the scent dries down, it adopts a leathery scent which makes it incredibly unique from other Creed clones as well as the Creed itself.
Its scent is very pleasant and warm and can be worn for both casual and formal. Compared to Aventus, I would say they are similar, save for the leathery scent but well, nothing can ever compare to an original fragrance.
Otherwise, it is a great pick. The only downside is that it does not last even half as long as Aventus does.
- Lowly priced
- A 12ml (about 0.41 oz) pocket version available
- Unique leathery scent
- Lasts for only 3-4 hours
3.Montblanc Explorer – 90% Smell like Creed aventus
If you’re looking for a best creed aventus clone, then you’ll want to check out the Montblanc Explorer.
Its fresh and woody scent is perfect for both men and women, and it’s sure to become your new go-to fragrance.

As a Creed aventus clone, Montblanc explorer sells for very less than Creed Aventus

5 Best Creed Aventus Alternatives
Musky Oakmoss by Dossier
Dossiers are the largest player on the fragrance dupe market. We know about the quality of the dossier fragrance in the Dossier perfume review. They are known for teasing perfumers.
Musky Oakmosses is inspired by Creed aventus. It is similar to Aventus’s popular pineapple scent. Its similarities with Creed aren’t truly clear and puts it in the second position of the list.
Musky Oak Moss is a blend of bergamot, oakmoss, rose and patchouli. It becomes musky during dry down. But this Creed aventus alternative has apples and pineapples too.
The top notes come off very citrusy and lemony but once the top notes subside, the bass notes kick in and thats when it smells almost exactly like Aventus.
Riiffs Masculin Leather
Another cologne that smells like Creed Aventus is the Riifs Masculin leather. Just like Zara Vibrant leather, it’s one of the best creed aventus clone.
It starts off with a citrusy scent that is from bergamot, then the pineapple, grapes and apple and dries down to a masculine leathery scent.
It may cost more than the two we earlier reviewed but at $$, the price is still a fraction of what Aventus costs, it’s still excellent value if you ask me for a scent that is close to Aventus.
- Lasts long
- Has a distinct masculine leathery scent
- Costs more than most clones
Glenn Perri Unpredictable Adventure
If you’re looking for an alternative to Aventus, Gleen Perr’s Unpredictable Adventure is your way to go! Of course, it cannot match the originality of Creed Aventus but the Smokey and Pineapple fragrance are what all you need at an affordable price. It can usually last up to 8-9 hours but you’re working around, it can last around 4-5 hours and I guess that’s more than enough.
It’s probably the smokiest of all Creed Aventus clone alternatives. Well, if you do love the combination of smokey along with a bit of pineapple fragrance, Unpredictable Adventure from Glenn Perri must not be a bad choice either if compared to Creed Aventus!
Pineapple Vintage Intense
The Pineapple vintage intense from Parfums Vintage is fruity, sweet, tropical, fresh and woody when it comes to fragrance. It has a high impact note as compared to the above reviewed Creed Aventus clones. The fruity fragrance is created by the top notes which include pineapple and apple of course. Whereas the heart of the perfume is dependent on rose and jasmine along with bergamot and pineapple again! With these many notes, it’s surely going to intensify anyone around you!
As the perfume has a good balance between fruity, tropical and woody fragrances, it can be suitable for both men and women. So, if you’re looking to get the same perfume for yourself and your girlfriend/wife, Pineapple Vintage Intense should be your go-to choice from Parfums Vintage! It doesn’t last for a very long time but it’s good enough to last for at least 5-6 hours on average!
Bond No 9 Perfume
The amalgamation of erotic and seductive fragrance makes Bond No 9 is the most popular perfume when it comes to both men and women. The perfume comes with essences of Oud, Musky and Rose as the major ingredients. Of course, there are a variety of fragrances available under Bond No 9.
This NYC grown brand is a perfect combination of modern and ancient essences. The new edition of this perfume can be visible in light when you spray it on your hands and turn your hands towards the light. It’s a long-lasting perfume and you shouldn’t think more if you want a perfume that suits you and your loved one!
Clone or original? This just comes down to your preference and your willingness to spend. For most people, a clone is just as good. And looking at these three best Creed Aventus clones, this myth may actually hold some water..
