The Aventus test/comparison
Hello dear community,

after my last test/comparison between Algemar and... and Aoud BlueNotes was a lot of fun, I started a new project now.
As already with Aoud... I wanted to check for myself whether the two scents, as described by some previous speakers, are really so similar.
First of all, I am not a perfume expert, but I have to do with perfumes and steams on my professional way. I am NOT a perfume expert but fragrances are a hobby.

I finally got both scents. Two tests done, one about the shelf life and one about the fragrance itself.

The initial situation was as follows:
Test starts at 7:00 in the morning.
Weather: Windy, cloudy, humidity 66%, 12 grat Celsius outside, 22 grat Celsius inside.
Tester: me, male
Helpers: 3 voluntary, 2 involuntary
Div.: Dog from the neighbor named Balduin

Comparison 1.
The name:
Aventus Creed: beautiful name, goes easily from the tongue, something edgy and defining.
Orion Tiziana Terenzi: sounds like the beginning of an Italian poem. With 3 freiw. testers immediately holiday feelings arose.
The rash of the dog's tail was always the same when the names were mentioned.

Comparison 2.
Flacon:
Aventus: beautiful shape, great logo with rider, appeals to me as a man.
2 freiw testers also see it that way.
Orion: no particularly striking shape of the bottle, nice lid with moon phases, at first a bit boring for me as a man. Would also pass as a cream can for women.
2 freiw testers of the same opinion
Ps: the dog didn't care.

Comparison 3.
Sillage:
Almost straight up. On my skin a slight plus for Orion.
Also found 3 free tester and 1 non-free pomace.
The dog didn't seem to care.

Comparison 4.
Shelf life:
Aventus: after 6 hours hardly perceptible, after approx. 8 hours completely disappeared
Orion: after 8 hours only a shadow of itself, but still perceptible the next day.

Comparison 5.
Fragrance:
Spray on and go. Very different start.
Aventus: Fresh, light pineapple, citric. Reminiscent of pineapple on lemon ice cream.
Orion: slightly citric, strong sweet pineapple, light apple note. More reminiscent of pineapple and sour apple compote.

..after 15min
Aventus: gets even fresher, clearer, cooler
Orion: very fruity, slightly sweet but softer, rounder, gentler than Aventus.
See 3 free tester also so.
The dog reacted with tail wagons with Aventus and with Orion he brought his ball...?

...after 30min to 1.5 hrs
Aventus: slightly stinging, slightly wooded and mossy probably from oakmoss ^^
Orion: now the birch is added, gently balsamic ^^
Two completely different fragrances!
Also found 3 free testers and 1 unfree tester (postman) :D
The dog is sleeping...

...after 1.5 to 3 hours
Are both weaker.
Strangely enough, both now smell very similar, no extreme boundaries to smell.
Also found 3 freiw testers and the second unfreiw tester (neighbor)
The dog doesn't come when you call his name anymore... D

...after 3 to 5 hours
Now some movement comes in again.
Of course both are a little weaker now, Aventus more than Orion.
Aventus: now you also take something that was vanilla.
Orion: beautiful harmonious oud incense "Düftchen" in the background.
Also found 1 free tester. The rest of the testers just say "smells good", so no more rating.
The dog's gone. Somehow he made a happy impression when his master picked him up. ?!?

...everything after 5 hours
Now nothing changes. Individual scent components now also make the end of the day piece by piece.
Aventus: keeps its freshness until the end.
Orion: keeps its fruitiness until the end.

Well, a comparison is difficult.
I could compare it to soccer players.
Carlos vs. Messi
Aventus = Roberto Calos. Small, strong as a tribble, but known and notorious for its rough nature and the extremely hard shot.
Orion = Lionel Messi. Also small and strong as a tribble, but much more sensitive on the ball and more overview.

Or comparison, Hulk vs Thor
Aventus = Hulk. Superhero, strong, hits everywhere, destroys everything.
Orion= Thor. Also superhero and strong, also hits on it and makes something broken, but with overview and only what must. Much more elegant.

I hope I could bring my comparison so far well a the man and to the woman.

I had a lot of fun again and it was very interesting, also for all testers and the dog.

You read...
Thanks for your time.

Urine and uranium...
One of my esteemed biochemistry professors would probably have put it this way:

"Aventus has about as much to do with Orion as urine has with uranium."

Even the fruity opening of the two fragrances cannot hide the fact that the similar top note is basically the only real common denominator. At the latest when the heart notes unfold, the paths separate. The "second born" Orion is an original creation. Definitely.

If you like, the YANG elements clearly dominate the "Italian" from now on, while the "Englishman", in contrast, appears to be a YIN type.

Orion has a much spicier and warmer effect due to the use of thyme and oregano in the heart area. The base of the Terenzi fragrance is also much more woody due to oud and cedar, and, thanks to incense and amber, also more resinous than its Creed counterpart.

There again the heart notes rose and juniper berry play in the middle and provide - in combination with the somewhat "greener" pineapple of the top note - by floral-metallic cool hints for greater freshness. Vanilla, ambergris and oakmoss underline the overall harmonious impression and create a balsamic-soft base. But: This idyll seems a bit empty and a bit sterile in places. Perfection can be quite tiring in the long run - even the olfactory nerves (anosmia!).

Speaking of which: Sometimes a highly synthetic note spreads at higher doses of Aventus, which does exactly that, namely n e v e n v e n . Dose-increases are therefore not a tried and tested way to escape a possible boredom.

Orion won't get embarrassed. In any case, the community sees him as the clearly more complex type of fragrance. Apart from the resinous aspect already mentioned above, the more masculine Southerner of all people seems to be even richer in a flowery facet for the testers. The remarkable interplay of jasmine and birch skilfully balances the fiery character of Mediterranean herbs and is reminiscent over long stretches of the beloved L'Air du Désert Marocain by Tauer. Noble, noble!

Durability and Sillage of Orion and Aventus are similar and rank in the upper midfield. Orion tends to be ahead of the game. It is probably due to the fact that Terenzi has not saved on the quality of the raw materials used and that it is also a genuine "Extrait de Parfum" Regardless of this, Orion scores with the significantly better price-performance ratio.

The "A" and "O" of fruitiness at a glance:

Aventus: YIN type fresh, soft, harmonious (EdP)
Orion: YANG type warm, spicy, powerful (XdP)

You decide.

When the rational mind meets the emotional heart
I'm a complete rationalist. With me, the heart rarely decides. I hardly ever make a truly erratic, spontaneous decision. I don't want to describe myself as inflexible, my work doesn't allow for that, but again, rational thought comes before creative and spontaneous decisions.
Usually I also make private decisions according to the pattern described above.
Unfortunately, however, this leads to conflicts with some frequency.

For me, perfume is already associated with a certain emotionality. Smells evoke memories of people, situations and other events in our lives.
I have quite a small collection, which is reduced to the most necessary. Sometimes I think to myself: "Man the fragrance is good. Buy it." And then on my left shoulder is the mind and says: "No, you have something similar, you do not need". The discussion is quickly ended.
This problem has come up again through Orion.

I love Aventus. For me, the fragrance is a benchmark. And I like to test fragrances that have some intentional or unintentional closeness to that very fragrance.
Orion is often described here as a more adult, better Aventus.
This, of course, made me curious.

Indeed. A certain, distant resemblance he has, BUT mMn. the comparison lags, because the fragrance already takes a whole different path at the beginning. That may just be my opinion, but as such I feel the fragrance.

The beginning is quite characterized by a very fresh, pleasant prelude, which can also be perceived well into the base. The concentration is here not only on the pineapple, but on a quite very successful fruit mixture. I smell especially currant and apple out. Pineapple I perceive rather in the background, restrained. That may already be the first big difference for me. Because with Aventus, the original or origin (if you can call it that) the expression is different. The pineapple is the only dominant factor there at the beginning.

Gliding further, so I notice another difference: the smoky part, which actually makes Aventus only to what he is ultimately, is completely missing here.
The fragrance remains completely true to its fresh line. It becomes woodier yes, but the smoky component is missing. Aventus may also differ there (the eternal batch discussion), but Orion pursues here a completely different objective.
It's the birch that gets through my nose. Gently accompanied by a touch of jasmine and patchouli. All very balanced, no real main player that takes the place of the other notes. Harmoniously, they play to their strengths. In fact, I find the fragrance to be a bit more accomplished than Aventus at this stage. It is more complex, more balanced and more fancy because of the different components.

In the base, it remains fresh. But this is somewhat diminished by the quite woody orientation. Find I perse well andgelungen. This makes him more portable in colder days and gives him a longer shelf life.
It is cedar and musk perceive here, but am honestly not quite sure.
The durability was surprisingly good and also the sillage was better than expected.

Going back to the starting point, I question whether Orion has any necessity for me. Since I have Aventus and l'aventure, which I really like because of its citrusy interpretation, the question is: is Orion now so different that I need it.
The heart says: hit it. Great scent! And here it comes; even the mind judges that this fragrance is a potential candidate for the collection. By a completely different development, basic direction and conception, I see here a completely own fragrance, with a minimal reference to the forefather.
I find Orion even more suitable for everyday use. Aventus is for me only for the evening., Orion unrestricted usable.

Final I can say: even if the heart has won only because the mind has agreed, I'm glad when Orion moves in with me!

That was my last comment for this modest year. For those who have made it this far, may I wish you happy holidays/festive season. Let yourselves well given, celebrate properly in the circle of your family and come well into the new year. And above all: stay healthy!
See you in 2021! :)

My number four, the Gummi Bear Juice
So, dear friends, it's time again to comment on my personal top 20 for my "perfume life". The people who have already stopped my comments are now 20, instead of 15.... So, back to Orion. The Orion is my official number 4, I have several perfumes in my collection, but I'm not quite sure if they will stay with me forever. So now I've decided to write a comment on every perfume from these Top 20 that I'll own. Now that Herod, Layton and Layton Exclusif have already been provided with a comment, the number 4 is now selected. Now let's get to the scent and the little story that follows on from it. Keyword "Aventus", you know? I almost thought, who doesn't know him, whether you like him now or not, no perfume is as well known as Aventus among people who deal with martyrdom. Why Aventus is proverb here? Because Orion, in my humble opinion, is Aventus in better. Don't get me wrong, I like the smell of Aventus and had it several times and relatively long also in my chosen ones, but in the end he was thrown out against this one!
Is Orion a clone? No way! No way! Does Orion have a large part of Aventus DNA? Somehow! But Orion is simply in my opinion, pure summer, it's sparkling, it's fruity, it's the right amount of sweet, the right amount of fresh, my goodness, wait a moment, I have to sniff it again..... Yeah, just dreamy! I would say, does anyone still know the gummy bear band? No matter if you sat in front of the TV yourself or your own children. So I thought it was absolutely great and when I got this fragrance under my nose, I immediately had to think about it. The gummy bear juice, which ensures that the consumer develops special powers for a while. That's how I feel when it blows around me and that's how it smells to me. That's what I'm thinking, he must have smelled!
I just can't get enough of it and I'd like to be right now.... Pfff Pfff..... Ah, beautiful!
Well enough of the enthusiasm, but really people, test that!
Performance is absolutely top league! Keeps 8-10 hours loose, which is an absolute dream for the fresh, fruity, fragrant DNA! Sillage is just as great! You are easily noticed all day long and can breathe a little bit of super power into everyone who walks past you for at least 6 hours!

If the comment hasn't made it clear enough, I LOVE that!
And so he moved in as my number four, who will accompany me in my life. We will have many more adventures where, with your Gummi Bear Juice effect, absolutely nothing will go wrong!

Thank you very much for reading and hopefully for your passion, also for wanting to enjoy the gummy bear nectar!
Your Dave! :)

Much more than an Aventus Dupe...
Orion is one of the few scents, which has made a second time in my collection. The first bottle had to go, because I was somehow still so stupid and thought me as soon as I smell apple, pineapple and birch in a perfume it's just a cheap Aventus Dupe (garbage). I think some here still think that way. It's really a touchy subject with the so called Aventus Dupes. Any resemblance, no matter how small, is a criterion for exclusion and the fragrance gets a bad rating.

Now I received my second bottle of Orion today and after today's wear or retest, I can really say Orion is for me an absolutely independent fragrance, which can set off by its woody notes, more Moss and a great green note of Aventus. Orion is for me clearly the better fragrance due to the previously mentioned differences. There are also other motivations for me, which made it that Orion could oust Aventus from my collection. The quality of Orion is better, which is clearly also due to the extrait concentration, which makes the individual notes stand out better. I got tired of every Aventus bottle I bought getting worse after 2016, especially in terms of performance. Orion is cheaper than Aventus, which is also a very important argument for me in a fragrance that I want to wear frequently.

Orion holds with me despite 30 degrees outside temperature over 7 hours, which is absolutely in the good range. The Silage is permanently perceptible at about an arm's length.

Orion could ultimately convince me by its independence, combined with a Similar direction as Aventus, but still be independent, here very many perfumes fail to do so.

Orion is also a great alternative for Hacivat owners who are their Hacivat too fruity or synthetic.

Woodier and much closer to the skin than its supposed "smell-alikes". The oregano note really stands out to me and differentiates it.
