Although this is not a heavy perfume, I find the elemi and clove dominant over the floral notes and even the Oud! Elemi is quite distinctive and hard to describe- a bit citrus, a bit resinous, slightly plastic, slightly metallic, natural but ceremonial...... have a sniff and see for yourself!
Not sure on how it compares to the original as have never smelt it but this does have all the characteristics you would expect from an AdP scent. Settles into a very sophisticated scent. Will definitely buy again
--- Spray-- This smells like Creed Aventus minus the smoke..it doesnt last on me I must say turns in to a skin scent quite quickly unless I sprey ma clothes..is it worth double the standard PP price per 30ml..no in my humble opinion..I would rather get a bottle of PP Aventus. Nice scent but 3 stars only for longevity and price/quality ratio.
