The hyped Armaf club de nuit intense man
Armaf club de nuit intense man is a clone fragrance made specifically for Famous Creed Aventus. It said to be most identical clone of creed Aventus where some batches even exceed the top qualities of aventus itself. So we are today going to talk about this cheap alternative of the niche fragrance creed aventus and why it become very popular. Initially the Armaf club de nuit intense man is made by sterling perfumes in dubai but after its gaining popularity the manufacturer process moved into france.
Creed Aventus clone
Lets talk about why the hype over Armaf club de nuit intense man.The main reason is the smell similarity between 2 fragrances. The opening notes of Armaf club de nuit intense man is a beast of its own. Very harsh lemon notes are there unlike creed. But with the dry down Creed aventus and Armaf club de nuit intense man become very much like aventus scent. Unless you are a super expert on fragrance game, you would never able to distinct the difference between two. Specially the earlier batches of Armaf club de nuit intense man like 2015 and 2016 have very good performance and even outnumber the aventus itself with the longevity. But 2017 the Armaf club de nuit intense man was re formulated to reduce the harsh lemon top notes and it had a hit on performance as well.
So a expert advice. Go for 2016 or 2015 versions regardless of the made country if you want a great performance.
Scent and notes
Unlike aventus where opening is very smooth with bergamot apple and pineapple. The Armaf club de nuit intense man have very harsh lemon top note including birch and black currant. Specially in the 2015 and 2016 batches the lemon note is very harsh that you not able to recognize other scents. In 2015 its smoothen out and you get the birch and black currant notes more.
Dry down pineapple , ambergris apple , rose jasmine and bergamot mixture comes together just like in creed aventus. This is where you really get the creed aventus vibe from Armaf club de nuit intense man
In 2015 and 2016 longevity is very high. You get around 6 hours to 8 hours in summer days in high 30 degrees. But the reformulated 2017 versions are somewhat less longevity where 3 to 4 hours max and it becomes a skin scent.
Just like the Longevity in recent version the projection dry down after 2 or 3 hours maximum . But in older versions the projection used to stay around 4 to 6 hours. If you live in Europe you would get the same performance as 2015 armaf version because the temperature is quite cool and evaporation is limited.
You could wore Armaf club de nuit intense man anywhere at anytime but make sure to stay away from humans for first 20 minutes if you have 2015 or 2016 batches. Even 2017 I would give the same recommendation. Its too lemony and harsh at the up top and after that it becomes very smooth and lovely.
I would say presentation is very good in Armaf club de nuit intense man. The details , the little gems and the chain attached to it. Gives very premium feeling. 10 out of 10 for presentation . Even the box is very solid and looks premium . Bottles come with 105ml juice and very heavy glass build. Sprayer is bit of messy but gives a good chunk of juice at the spray. I would say 5 sprays a top at summer.
Best thing about armaf is the price . It used to be around 20$ . but currently it goes with 30 35$ due to the hype. The bad thing is most fragrance sellers have latest versions and you will have to give big bucks for older versions. Also the product goes out of stock very quickly.
Overall I would say for the given price and the smell Armaf club de nuit intense man is one of the best designer , if not clone fragrance. If you are not hanging around with some fragrance experts, chances are you getting complements very high. If you have the bucks. Go for creed aventus. If you don’t, Armaf club de nuit intense man is there for get your back.
