Creed Aventus alternatives (NOT clones) recommendations?

That sounds like a simple task, but it really narrows the options. IMO, this pretty much eliminates the lion share of niche parfums because most are made with naturals and they won't last all day at full strength. IMO, this puts you in the designer ranges.

Things that are Creed level classy yet designer performance:

- Terre d'Hermes
- Dior Eau Sauvage (NOT Sauvage)
- Acqua di Parma Colonia (or Intensa)
- Guerlain Vetiver
- Kouros
- Azzaro

P.S. After years of searching, testing, buying etc...I have come down on the side of niche naturals with soft projection and moderate performance (meaning the scent is a skin scent the second half of the day). I have been much happier with those scents in the long run. Let us know how you make out.
Great list!

I think the first 4 fit the op’s conditions and in that order too!
I would add Paco Rabanne PH and Azzaro Chrome as a couple of very affordable year round crowd pleasers.
