These arrived with me today. I’m not sure if some have taken a bit more use or if they might have leaked. My hands smell of TV so think that may be leaking. I’ll come back with further thoughts once I’ve tried them but the Oud Intense is an initial favourite.

Yesterday I used the executive sample which is based on Creed Aventus. I used about five sprays in the morning and it was ok at first and pretty close to the real thing but I found it didn’t last all that long and was gone by lunch. Pretty disappointing. I’ve got a few other Aventus clones such as Armaf Club De Nuit Intense Man and L’Aventure. I also have a perfume parlour copy which is good too. The best clone I have tried so far is the CDNIM which lasts all day. Considering the cost of the copy cat clone CDNIM would be my recommendation as it is about £25-30 for a 105ml bottle.

Today I’ve just put on a few sprays of the Oud Intense. Smells good so far and I hope it lasts longer than the Executive.

Funny how people's skin differs so dramatically! The Executive was an all-day affair for me.

De gustibus etc, but I preferred Executive to CDNIM. I thought it developed better but I guess you won't get any development if it doesn't last in the first place.

It is strange how skin and noses differ. To be fair the executive is more like Aventus than CDNIM but thats only the initial smell and then CDNIM becomes quite similar.

I found with the executive the first time I used it it seemed to have a short burn , but after that lasted all day, I have a larger bottle now and that seems to last, I wasn't sure if perhaps the first time I used it the scent wasn't mixed or something , I always turn it upside down and back the right way before using, but maybe this makes no difference.
