"Aventus type," lesson
First of all, this is not an "Aventus clone." This fresh, fruity woody mens perfume is in the same genre, the same category and family of perfumes, but it is NOT a replica. Secondly, I despise clones. Making clones is a dirty business. It lacks creativity and inspiration. Making clones lacks originality and it is plain wrong.
Let me say this. Perfumery is a VERY misunderstood art form. In fact, it is hardly understood by anyone at all! Let me also say this, perfumers learn their craft in the exact same manner as all other artists do. Example: Young painters go to museums across Europe to sketch, to copy to learn from the Great Masters. They do this to learn how to handle their paints, they do this to learn to build shadows, to combine colours effectively, to learn to layer their paints. They imagine the hand of the artist going over the canvass. Young painters do these exercises - to try to get into the MINDS of their hero's. Novelists read, examine and study - IN GREAT DETAIL - the plays of Shakespeare. This not looked down upon in any way. Young blooming mathematicians, they study equations and practice formulas from text books. Artists, engineers and scientists of all types STUDY the WORKS, the scripts, the formulas - of those who went before them - to hone their craft. ***So too is it with perfumery.****There is nothing "special," nothing mysterious, nothing different or exceptional about the art of perfumery, The practice of examining formulas, of learning how materials combine with each other, this is how perfumers have learned their craft for more than 200 years. This is a short perfume formula lesson on combining transparent woods, with musks, citrus and fruity materials. It is not a replica of "Aventus," it is an exercise (one of several thousands exercises I have gone through) to learn to use modern materials, to create a modern "masculine," fresh type woody perfume.
