My honest review of Afnan Supremacy Not Only Intense

Supremacy Not Only Intense (Afnan)

My Full Fragrance Review:

Everybody’s talking about Creed Aventus, and with good reason. It’s a beloved scent. But let’s be honest, there’s a parade of affordable imitations flooding the market. While most of them fall short of the original’s majesty, there are some that stand out. Enter Afnan, a fragrance powerhouse from the UAE, renowned for creating budget-friendly fragrances without compromising on quality. One of my personal favorites is Turathi Blue. But the talk of the town? Supremacy Not Only Intense, often dubbed as Afnan’s nod to Aventus. So, I’ve decided to pen down my opinion and see if the hype is real.

Review: Supremacy Not Only Intense (Afnan)

Quick Facts:

  • Scent Profile: citrus, woody, fruity
  • Season: all-seasons
  • Longevity: long-lasting
  • Occasion: versatile
  • Price: $$

Smell:

First off, the concentration. Supremacy Not Only Intense is an Extrait de Parfum. With at least 30% perfume oil, it’s pretty rare for its price range. Upon first spray, it’s INTENSE. Like, borderline overpowering intense. Yet, while it’s good, I wouldn’t call it a spitting image of Aventus. There’s an evident smoky aura as if you’re amidst burning woods, contrasted by some citrus undertones. Its initial profile is reminiscent of Club de Nuit Man Intense by Armaf, but gentler on the citrus. What sets Supremacy Not Only Intense apart? The delightful blend of fruity currant and a hint of sweetness, complemented by the classic masculinity of oakmoss. After the initial olfactory assault, it mellows down, taking on a vibe similar to DesirToxic, but smokier. Here’s my take: Supremacy Not Only Intense isn’t your Aventus clone, but it’s an interesting scent in its own right. Versatile and suitable for almost any setting, it’s a solid addition if you’re considering a single signature scent.

Longevity:

Given it’s an Extrait de Parfum, expectations were sky-high. And Afnan didn’t disappoint, but with a twist. It has commendable longevity, but surprisingly, Club de Nuit Man Intense (a mere Eau de Toilette) edges it out in the duration department. However, rest assured, Supremacy Not Only Intense won’t leave you without a nice scent bubble around you.

Final Thoughts:

Of all the Aventus contenders I’ve tried, Supremacy Not Only Intense takes the cake. But here’s the twist – not because it emulates Aventus, but precisely because it doesn’t. It’s distinct, boasting notes of currant, oakmoss, and a generous dose of smokiness. It oozes masculinity and is a solid choice if you’re in the market for something that’s both attention-grabbing and versatile. A word of caution, though – its intense smokiness might not be everyone’s cup of tea. If you’re on the lookout for a smoother, less smoky alternative, DesirToxic by M. Micallef might just be your answer. As a parting note, a shoutout to Afnan for the stellar packaging of Supremacy Not Only Intense. For its price, it feels and looks premium.
