It's one of my top favorites in my aresenal.

An advice for those who are new to this one;

If you want it's performance & it's sweetness, apply only one layer. Do not apply a second layer in the same place.

Finally I have Aventus. I sold every scent I have and bought two of them, the big 4 oz. ones. I get it now. It is fruity, not synthetic and loud. But it is the use of natural ingredients in this that makes you feel like you are wearing raw ingredients and not alcohol and synthetics. Everything from start to finish smells natural and fresh. I get it now. I get why it's hyped up so much. It doesn't have that metallic smell that a lot of scents carry. I think that's why the smell comes to me in waves, rather than loud and utterly insane. It's an utterly fantastic juice. I have batch 16A01, which is called a fruitier batch, I suppose. I just need this, and one other scent for winter, and I am set.

Tested it on paper here in Sweden. Brought it home and kept it to the day after. All I could smell was strong harsh smokiness all the way through. Very dominant and alpha malish. Not bad but not for me. The fruity batches I've seen reviews about sounds like a completely different fragrance. My nose or does the batches differ that much!?!

I own a 75ml bottle of Aventus batch code 15x21 for 3 weeks now.

I only wear it for four times now... first time applied maybe 8 sprays of it... my skin is not good in perfumes (sadly). After 5 minutes I didnt smell anyting... so I was frustrating... In my other aplications only use two sprays in the chest and back of neck and with some difficults along the day I smell it time to time.

I put 2 spays on my girlfriend, took her to a place and come back for the same way without her, I swear in my way back I was smelling Creed Aventus in the way... also she says when she back home the day after she still can smell it in the cloths.

I thing this one do nose fatigue to me, what is not a good thing, because I like to smell my perfumes.

This is a very well balanced for what I smelled, I tried the 15r11 (very fruity and good performance). This one after the time loses a litle bit of the fruity side and becomes a more dark smoky...but just a little... classic and wearable any time.

My girlfriend loves this smell she says it is one of the best on my collection... and I agree with her... Creed GIT is also another one very good (please dont comapare to CW Davidoff). All Creeds I have and tested you can smell natural ingredients.
In my Aventus also I am waiting with the usage that the air will macerate better all the natural ingredientes to be even better.

Smell..... 9 (0-10)
Projection... 8,5 (0-10) need to test more
Sillage.....8.5 (0-10) need to test more
Longivety... on skin arround 10 hours (after showering I can smell its presence very ligth, a pleasent smell) in cloths you can expect between 16 to 18 hours.

J'adore l'ananas, je devais donc tester ce parfum après tout ce que j'avais lu sur lui.
C'est un parfum décontracté et classe à la fois. Ca sent bon c'est certain. Maintenant est ce que ça vaut ce prix la ? Je pense que c'est exagéré. Très linéaire.

The "Aventus Mind Map":

New bottle design about two weeks ago.

Smaller.

Prices on all bottles went up significantly, as new smaller bottle was introduced to use as an excuse to jack up prices.

Analysis: The masses are not "complimenting" this.

What the masses are used to are ambroxan/aldehyde/calone bombs. Department stores are filled with them, women love them, ignorant masses douse themselves with them by the gallon.

Aventus simply smells DIFFERENT from the freshy bombs everyone's nostrils are being burned up with.

That does NOT translate into "it smells amazing."

People are not attuned enough to what real compliments are, because most of the time, the receiver has no real way of knowing. Unless they're like me, and can read minds.

Fact: People will SAY you smell nice, *simply because they noticed the scent*, and don't want to be rude.

Aventus is a *nice* scent. It is not even close to amazing.

And if you really just sit down, THINK, and THEN smell it, you'll discover the truth:

It is rather bland.

SUMMARY:

It IS nice.

It is NOT anything special.

It IS overpriced by about 500%.

Period.

Greed Aventus. Erwin needs to pay for his stinky yacht.

What else to say about this potion..its undescriable,I would buy it even if it would cost 1000 dollars because this is not about money. This is the proof that you can buy a piece of heaven with human money ..and thats what life is about.
Girls love it, boys love it, everybody loves it...huuuuge compliments getter.
I cant say enough thanks to CREED for this biggest masterpiece on earth

Creed Aventus, this is a wonderful fragrance. It's the type of scent you just want to smell all of the time. A Very Fresh scent, great for any time of the day or year. It really stands out and doesn't smell like most of the scents I've smelled out there. It will get you noticed and you will feel good wearing this scent. The price tag is high though, but I'm glad I bought it. After I wore it I knew why people praised Aventus so much. Aventus has to be in my top two favorite fragrances.

This is my experience with Aventus: I bought a 30 ml bottle several months ago, and I tried it once. At first, I didn´t like it very much. It was a “bah” for me, but I received at least 3 compliments that day. Aventus slowly started to grow on me. I went on and on until I finished the bottle in a couple weeks, receiving compliments every single day wearing the fragrance.
I bought one 75 ml and one 120 ml bottle, but they don´t smell the same. They´re not even close to the first bottle (I never took care of that first bottle´s batch, but the new bottles are from 2015). Sadly, I´ve got to believe in the legend of the batches (or reformulation). Maybe I´ll try a 2017 batch as a last chance.

Sorry, but I have to take exception with Fleike's review below. By all means review the fragrance and inform us of your opinion on how crappy it is, if that's what you think, but why the need to insult the people buying and wearing this fragrance. What makes a person qualified to pass judgement on other people in such a way? There's plenty of fragrances that I don't like but I don't feel the need to insult the people that do. I really don't get why people have to be so rude, it adds nothing to the review of the fragrance, which is why this forum is here - to review the FRAGRANCE not the people wearing it.

Great fragrance but overpriced and overrated. Al Haramain just cloned it to the T with their L'Aventure which you can buy for about £40, not the same but damn near close. Is this the end of Aventus?

I advise you to watch "L`Aventure Al Haramain vs Creed Aventus" by Bottom Note on YouTube. One of the best reviews ever.

Top quality slightly salty herbal Mediterranean like scent. Light sillage. Fruity and not smokey. This is the current formulation.

I tried to compared with Armaf Club Nuit intense and though there is a similarity, it can't substitute for the high quality of Aventis. Armaf is quite sharp and harsh whilst Aventus is gentle and smoother. The sillage in Armaf is superior compared to Aventus.

I'm an ignorant of the third millennium, and like many people from different parts of the world I prefer to use fragrantica.com to read more reviews and have more opinions about perfumes.
Through google translate I can also read and write in my language and read the reviews in Arabic, Spanish, French, German ... Everything is beautiful.
The world is full of colors and smells.
Thank you fragrantica.
Thank you google .
This review will soon be eliminated as it does not deal with the perfume Aventus.

Be careful on how you judge Aventus. Many have said how they love it, and many have said how they hate it, or how mediocre it is. It is obviously like anything; up to preference. But let me tell you one more thing and it's about the batches. Yes, the batches that everyone talks about and I am no expert on them. I will keep it simple. I won't try to tell you the batch numbers because I do not know them...

My first experience with Aventus was one that lived up to the hype. I bought a decant and it was very, very good. I'm no expert so I won't try to break down notes. All I can say was not only did it smell unique, rich, and just awesome, but it also had great performance.

Now my second experience; I got an official sample straight from a Creed booth. Actually I got several from different bottles, at different times, from new bottles even twice. There were all quite similar to each other but all were quite different from the first decant I bought. The smell was different, the performance was quite worse, and I did not like this smell even close to as much as the decant I bought. It was lighter and more similar to the clone I tried by Armaf.

So it seemed if I were to have missed the first one I ever bought, I would not care too much for Aventus either. I would still think it would be an overall good scent but nothing like the first I tried.

So be careful and don't judge Aventus on one batch.

The initial frag explosion is sweet and fruity. While it's nice, it lasts a couple of minutes at best, so it's not exactly important.

The next phase, I'm really not completely enamored with. In fact, I was a bit disappointed with it, so I didn't mentally note the characteristics.

However, somewhere in the next 20 to 25 minutes it transformed into something amazing and the hype train completely broadsided me; it's real!

Aventus- how I wanted to hate you.

Let me preface by saying that yesterday was my last day trying out the "favorites sampler" at Sephora, mixing that in with some decanted samples. Since I started this journey for a new fragrance, I have received ZERO compliments or comments during my usual routine.

Today was different. Applied only once at 6am, complimented by the babysitter (my mom). 9am someone complimented that I went too heavy on cologne, but it was a "good thing." 3pm complimented by attractive 21 year old that I speak to every day. "You smell really really good. Who are you trying to impress." Minutes later, her attractive friend enters and says, "I don't know why, but I really want to rub your shaved head today." Fast forward to 6pm. Watched a female athletic event. Three of the athletes came over to greet me after the game, they smelled me through each others' sweat and complimented. Arrived home at 7pm, wife said "I like that one, is that from the sampler?" Dipped arm in pool to test it. I complimented myself as a new scent surfaced. Showered.......

Why can't you be $50?

I have a really hard time distinguishing the notes on this one. I don't smell pineapple. I smell maybe apple and/or melon. It's just very unique to me. Love it.

Whenever I transform my skin with Aventus, men around me cower in fear and dare not challenge my authority. Conversely, the ladies are giddy with delight and fraught with sexual tension for they sense the essence of Emperor Aventus (pronounced Ahh-Ven-Toose in Latin while on one knee and clenching clenching one's tightly closed fist) blended with my testosterone-laden and pheromone-oozing skin. This fragrance, received directly the Thrones of Asgard, lasts 10+ hours and projects like a beast on my skin. Aventus is truly a masterpiece IMO.

If you're not wanting to spend big $$$ on a bottle of Aventus (gotta admit it's pricey) there are some decent alternatives (i.e., Aventus Clones) that you may wish to purchase even though I, personally, don't reach for them often. While many strike a similar vibe, none have managed to duplicate that wickedly good burnt-pineapple, smokey-birch and Creed DNA that has made my Aventus my signature scent, and one of my most complimented fragrances, over the past few years.

GK's Aventus Clone Ranking:

1. Afnan Supremacy Silver (EdP)
2. Reyane Insurrection Pure II (EdT)
3. Al Haramain L'Aventure (EdP)
4. Rasasi Rumz Al Rasasi Zebra Pour Lui (aka Rasasi Pour Lui 9325)
4. Armaf Club de Nuit Intense Man (EdP)
6. Mancera Cedrat Boise (EdP) (not really an Aventus Clone IMO and could be ommited...superior quality to all others)
7. Junaid Jamshed Janan Gold Edition
8. Lomani AB Spirit Silver (EdT)
9. Glenn Perri Unpredictable Adventure
10. Adnan B. Noir (EdT)

My apology to the great Aventus . I bought this at the beginning of my niche journey at the end of year 2015 due to the great praise , when i first smelled it i thought what an ordinary scent this is,i used it once in a while and kept it in my collection to say i have the great Aventus not realizing why it is that great.
Few days ago i started using it again when i realized how great it was,yes Aventus is perfection in perfume world ,
why? simply because it is all what you need in a perfume .
Aventus is very well made to be a signature scent ,simple yet great, use day or night ,summer or winter,casual wear or in your best suit,when you are young or getting old,Aventus never let you down.Great respect for the very best of Creed house the one and only great Aventus.

Aventus is basically sweet/juicy pineapple to go along with some smoky woody notes. This stuff projects like crazy on me and leaves a trail lingering for hours. EVERYONE loves that juicy pineapple note. This one is in my top 5 for obvious reasons.

It seems I missed the boat with Aventus. A friend told me to get some because he thought it was the best fragrance he had ever smelt. He ran out and bought a second bottle in December, I bought mine in April of this year. I was VERY underwhelmed by mine. Projection was ok, not great.. and the smell was almost all Pineapple. My friend even said his was no where near as good as the one he got a few years ago.

So I heard about Club De Nuit and that it is very similar to the original Aventus, or good batches of Aventus. So for £25 I thought I would give it a try! The sad thing will be if this is actually much better than my bottle of Aventus, I'll probably never wear that again.

I'll update the review when I receive it and give it a try!

UPDATE
Unbelievable! Smells exactly like Aventus, and I received 3 compliments today, some in the afternoon when I had sprayed it at 6.45am. Club De Nuit is head and shoulders above the Creed I bought a month ago (albeit a bad batch it seems). Projects and performs amazingly.

I gotta say this.
I really dont get when someone writes review on their own language on english version of Fragrantica. There are a lot of versions of this site for all major language groups, where you can write in your own language and share the experience with others who speak and understand that language. Please be polite and write in english here, so that everybody can understand. What is the point of writing a review when most of the people wont understand? I can go on and on about this, but i will stop here.
Aventus 10/10. Nothing new to say about it.

Ok so I think a lot of Aventus fans are going to grill me on this review. Last month I traveled to Dubai and would have at least met 10 or so people wearing Aventus flankers in the shopping mall. You can tell from the trail left by the Aventus flanker quality.

The point being Aventus has been hyped so much that its come to a stage where its success is setting the path for its downfall. Remember Faberge Brut Cologne how mainstream it has become since its launch in 60's.

People spending 200-300 GBP to smell good to someone doesn't really matter anymore as to an untrained nose Aventus and Aventus flanker sillage smells the same.

Think about it.

It took me so long to write a review on my favorite perfume. Easily this is the best perfume I have ever owned, period. It's perfect, high quality juice. Aventus tick all the boxes in my book. It's a crowd pleaser while not being mainstream, original (none I could find similar smell when they first release this), masculine. Performance is steller, this is the only Creed perfume have a good performance on my skin. Last around 10 hours with good projection.

I can clearly smell pinapple, birch, leather and some smokiness (not sure which note give the smoky vibe). I believe I have the smoky batch (2012 release). Recently I bought another bottle as my old bottle is about to finish, but i'm kinda disappointed, smell different. Don't have the smoky smell anymore, it's just very fruity for my liking. I have Armaf club de nuit intense also, it's very similar to smoky batch of aventus. But performance is not so great on me. This is a modern classic.

There's a scene in the film 'Perfume: the story of a murderer'.
The film's main character is in a darkened alley/courtyard, hunched over the naked corpse of a stunning young girl that was killed unintentionally. He is enraptured with her 'scent', he is savoring every moment of her essential beauty until....it vanishes.

Just as quickly as he was enchanted, he is driven to a frenzy of disbelief, anger and yes, even madness.

I appear to be the only one on this blue rock who gave it a chance, recoiled and then began to like Aventus; only to begin consistently asking myself 'Where is it?'. After a few minutes,it disappears as quickly as it's been sprayed.I have tried this fragrance dozens of times now, each time under different conditions.I want to love it, but it just disappears before it even starts.

It's anything but incredible; and if the name wasn't on the bottle I would have laughed at anyone who said it was formulated by Creed.

Natural plant constituents will vary any product that has them as a base, and I have experienced a variance in my favourite Creed scents, as well as essential oils, herbs etc. in which I deal every day for a living. But Aventus' issues are more than that (for my nose). It feels like someone has taken two diametrically opposed perfumes and mixed them together.If it had (even the beginnings) of a half-life, one might get to explore it/them further.But whatever enchantment it holds seems to evaporate faster than the ethanol that binds it.

Creed have formulated some true fragrance icons. I just wish (I really do!) I could share the global paradigm that Aventus is one of them.

The girl in the alley is Aventus, she has been killed by the (perhaps) unintended frenzy of her own existence, leaving this vagabond madly scratching at a corpse, a shell of a scent. Searching, yearning for something that was maybe,simply never there.

I tested this 10 october 2015 and loved it. And I said I would test in field. 19 nov 2015 I had recieved a unprovoked compliment which I very RARELY get.

Now I want to update my review, because I decided to wear it out yesterday again. I got two spontaneous compliments from two women the same night, in my world thats is unheard of.

Acqua di Gio has been the number one compliment getter for me, and I tried so many colognes by now. But the ratio between amount of wears and unsolicited female compliments, this is the new king.

The longevity is as good as it gets for a fruity and light scent and it obviously projects.

I go very much by compliments to gauge my fragrances worth. This is incredible in that regard and the price points probably helps it pop out more from the crowd and get those compliments going.

People go on and on about the very forward smokey pineapple notes of this fragrance, but what I find even more interesting about it is this strange moist freshness vibe I get while wearing it. It's that same kind of vibe you get when you walk into a bathroom after a hot, steamy shower. The smell of whatever soap you used is thick in the air, but carries a very warm wetness to it. I pick up on that sort of thing a lot when wearing this. It's as if I just showered with a strong smokey pineapple bar of soap (without the soapy smell), but in the form of a fragrance that emulates the entire experience of that.

A single large spray on the neck is plenty fine for me throughout the day. Definitely unique, and fresh in a realistic way.

I have had the same experience (and opinion) as kwasi fredua below. The batch variations are really frustrating...the juice is priced as premium yet there appears to be significant variation from heavy fruit to heavy birch. The batch I have (e21) is more on the fruity side and has very soft projection and longevity on my skin...basically a skin scent after 20 minutes. The birch-pineapple combination is very intriguing, but I cannot justify spending more on this than on better-performing niche and designer scents.

For comparison, I also own GIT and find its performance to be world-class. For those considering an Aventus vs GIT decision, I would suggest to prioritize your requirements: Both are of obvious high-quality and offer some complexity even with rather linear development. If you want a unique and sumptuous scent to wear close to the skin or do not mind re-applying throughout the day and the price is not an issue, then today's formulation of Aventus may suit your needs. If you are after a fresh, green scent with slight sophistication and strong projection and sillage...then you may prefer GIT.

I can never get enough of this scent! The pineapple and birch are intertwined so beautifully and in such a way that makes it iconic.

As much as I am here to discuss the scent (which I have several times) I received a phone call from an associate I know well who works at Holt Renfrew in Canada. Apparently, from what I was told, Creed is now changing their bottle sizes for the same price. No more 120ml flasks or 75ml bottles. Those become 100ml and 50ml respectively. I can't believe that. But with that said, it would be worth perhaps stocking up on your favorite Creed fragrance.

I'd certainly opt for a 75ml Aventus because I only have a 30ml bottle and I use it quite a lot. Beautiful scent.

I've been wearing this scent now for several months. I wear it daily for work and off work. I work long days and I can still get a sense of it after 12-13 hours. Very good longevity. Really good projection too but not cloying. For me it's a little feminine. I had thought so but based on the reviews thought maybe it was just me, then someone else mentioned it, and then someone else. After the second person I started looking elsewhere but in the meantime I've still been wearing this, especially with the cost. Now 3 separate people who don't interact with each other have each said I smell like an unlit cigar, like an "upscale swisher sweet" was what one lady said. That would be fine but I don't smoke them or anything else so not interested in having that as a smell associated with me. It may be just the way it mixes with my skin but ultimately I'll be moving on. Sad too because I really liked it minus the associations I'm being given and the fact it comes off slightly feminine. Pro's are very good longevity and good projection and silage but not overpowering. Con's are the price, I blind bought. And at least on me it's feminine and cigar-y. I had been wearing CK Truth and I can definitely see the quality difference tho, especially in the longevity of it. All in all, awesome stuff, if it meshes with your skin I'm jealous, I WANT to love it. I may wear it when I'm home alone still.

This is certainly a very high quality scent. I'm not sure it necessarily deserves the insane amount of hype it's received over the past few years but it's very good nonetheless.

On initial spray you're met with a very intense fruity note, most reminiscent of the sharpness of pineapple, although with a very strong helping of bergamot too, blended nicely with a masculine smokiness and deep creaminess. The way the fruit blends with the woods reminds me somewhat of the 'root-y' qualities of vetiver, although sweeter and more complex, and this impression increases as time goes on. Projection and lifespan are both above par.

The blend of refreshing fruit sweetness and subtle masculinity are what makes Aventus a joy to spray on. This is the perfect scent for a crisp sunny morning. Personally I would have to say that GIT is by some way the better fragrance, but of course this is subjective.

I used to own this. I loved the birch note in it. It's the only fragrance that I've encountered that had a very discernible birch note, and it was amazing. It had above average versatility, longevity, and projection. The problem was that it has patchouli, and I've learned that anything that has patchouli morphs into something truly terrible on my skin within a hour or two. If Aventus didn't have patchouli, it might have been my signature scent.

I really wanted to like this one but I just don't. I've tried different batches,i have the clones, but it just doesn't work with me at all. I have never received a compliment with it, quite the opposite actually. I've gifted all but a couple decants and the recipients of the bottles all like and wear it and I'm quite happy about that.
Not sure if it's my skin chemistry or personality or what not but on me... it's just quite boring. I do like the scent, just not on me. After 2 years of experimenting with it, I will call it a meh.

I purchased a bottle of Aventus based on the wild rave over how good it is. I am so disappointed. For a niche brand that sells its bottles at $300 to $400 this just doesn't cut it. I have designers that smell way better and have superior performance to this. It is so fleeting and there is no wow factor about the scent itself. It is just another freshie.

Just maybe, I got a bad batch but then again if you will charge an arm and a leg for your juice you better make sure the juice is potent enough to warrant that price tag and consistent throughout batches.

If anyone is looking to purchase a bottle I'd advise against it unless you have tried a sample and really dig the scent or the performance is good on your skin.

Please do not believe the hype. I am an average Joe who purchased based on the hype.

Don't believe the niche head hype which is what this is. An honest person will tell you that women generally do not like this fragrance on men. It's usually from other guy only that you'll get compliments from. Watch any YouTube video where females smell it and you see it's the truth. Literally every female that has smelled Aventus on me disliked it. It is not a compliment bomb and people that say otherwise are not telling the truth.

One time I did beast mode with this and went on a date. (I never tell to my girlfriend what am I wearing, do I wear anything at all nor do I ask for opinion or compliments). Later on that day she calls me from her working place to tell me that she still smells like my ''aftershave''. And asked me what kind of aftershave that was. That only tells me that this is strong, but it doesn't smell what you would expect looking it's price tag. It is good, but at the same time youtubers and marketing put this way above it's actual place. It is good, it is not extraordinary, it is nice, it is not a panty dropper, it smells clean,fresh, fruity, like smokey ananas (pineapple) (btw, I thought it would be more like tobacco smoke, but it is not smoke like that, just a ''regular'' smoke that you get when you are roasting something on a barbecue.
Honestly, I think it is not worth all this hype. I don't recommend anybody to save money for this. If money is not an issue for you go for it, but for 250$+ you should just buy more designers bottles. I prefer Green Irish Tweed over Aventus.

Recently purchase it but the purchasing it also difficult due its batch code and specially non availability of highly perfume shop or franchise. I read fragrantica review most about its longvety and silage. Some people disappointed by its manifacture date one and another batch code. I search many review in basnote and google about the batch code and then search a list of batch code of many date and their batch code.
I search it which is too good and excellent fragrance I gone on shop one spray it and check it its batch code I remember it , but shopkeeper don't have more item and batch code.
I still come back its smell me own nose permanently effect me. I personally effect by it its code h01 but after one two week I decide to purchase it ists amount is too large and so costly that if perfumist cannot exact good longvety batch code its my be go in shock due to soo huge amount given him
So I purchase its but on shop I purchase batch code no h11 another code I use it too good and good for men having a highly personality, I like it really but I don't know why creed aventus change its formulla . its a joke and not for good as human being
Every person not know the its originality or smell due to its batch code which is huge print available in google search.
I honestly says to perfume company that its not a good reputation and not good for a human to change his product.
In Islam its too highly wrong concept if product is not as to say as you sell its or change its formula as you firstly made its for business and profit, I condem it.
But overall creed aventus is highly good perfume as its name creed

Ignore Truffle Dogs mongoloid obnoxious review, the owner of it needs to get a grip and learn how to descibe fragrances rather than insulting.

I used to have a 2014 batch and it was fairly smokey and just overall masculine with some pineapple thrown in there and would last on my clothes for a good week or 2. I've smelled it plenty of times in John Lewis and other places and it just doesn't smell the same anymore which I believe is what everyone knows anyway, their batches are fruity and weak now. I switched to Armaf Club De Nuit and although its a little more harsh and unrefined/masculine due to the fact it's not oil based, it's still as close a clone as you'll get to the good Aventus batches that everyone raves on about, I've had plenty of compliments and not from the women that the above reviewer likes to generalise, men and women both compliment me.

Do yourself a favour and if you haven't tried Aventus and want to see the original hype behind it, get Club de Nuit by Armaf and you'll see a closer resemblance than Aventus of today.

Picked up this juice today while walking around Nordstrom's, although I didn't need any more cologne, it smelled too good not to have it. I went in there to smell Green Irish Tweed originally, but that was too similar to older colognes.

Upon initial spray, instantly I got the Pineapple & Woodsy notes(I wouldn't have said Birch, but it is) and I was sold. This one has such a chunky pricetag I had to just impulse buy, otherwise i'd never get it. Definitely seems worth it so far. I put on 4 sprays at noon, it's 6:15 now and still smells great. I'll update more later, when I've had a chance to smell it in depth and in different weather.

Scent:9.5 Really great stuff here
Longevity:9
Sillage:6 Not overly strong, very refined
Unique/Industry First:10 Pineapple!!!!!
Quality:10 This is definitely a quality product, feels good knowing I got the authentic version as well. This is clearly one of the best scents on the market today. Absolutely love this juice

Pros: Good scent. Very enjoyable.

Cons: too expensive for what it is. Overrated and over hyped. Not the savior of the world as people make it sound. Very common. It seems everywhere you go everyone is wearing it and it reminds people of someone else. Not special anymore.

I wouldn't pay that much to remind people of someone else and run into 10 other guys wearing Aventus everywhere I go.

Sampled just once so far and its likely become a must have for me. Pineapple is my absolute favorite fruit and I am still catching it off the scent 14 hours later. Just absolutely blown by how long lasting this scent and how much I love the pineapple, birch, and musk. I am terribly allergic to birch so its not my favorite wood at all -- yet, I cant get enough of this scent.

Couldn't stand by listening to all the Aventus-talk without ever trying it. So I bought a sample and something happened. I'd sampled dozens and dozens of other scents, a lot of them expensive niché, but this, this was something else. Already bought a second sample and the craving to acquire a full bottle is now always in the back of my mind. God damn you Aventus!

After extensive use of this fragrance I report no brain damage and just olfactory fatigue after about 40 min.

The scent is great, the thing is, the smell is a "refined smoky tutti-frutti" which is an all rounder. It pleases most people and it kind of starts an addiction, this is why it went so popular and why the price is so high. However only a few houses are capable of copying it properly with correct smokyness and brightness etc.

Longevity is not bad and people always expect ludicrous performance while complaining about money. Most of the frag heads have a lot of fragrances in their collection but what about respraying aventus once and not buying an extra fragrance next month?

As for variations I think like too little people have pointed out: they are just variations and it's not a different smell. You can always choose one of the billion alternatives out there.

For all the other people of who want to start dissecting perfumery art and poetry go smell Beaufort London's Tonnerre and whatever's next to it. I hope your nose gets severely injuried and I hope you realise there's no point in defending Aventus at any cost and no point at criticizing it either. Just analyze the situation and boom guess what it's just a bottle.

This is enough to cope with all the bullshit gone around this fragrance lately.

Also i understand that this is a Creed fragrance,but if we are talking for smelling good in maximum than Dior Sauvage should cost twice as this.
Creed Aventus is a goot fragrance like a lot of fragrances,but it is overhyped and overpriced
Than Dior Sauvage or even Bleu de Chanel should cost twice as this

Aventus wears a big crown in the fragrance community, and it's well deserved. It's a very masculine and fresh scent that makes a statement for whoever is wearing it. If you're a masculine man and you wear a masculine fragrance like Aventus then you and your fragrance make the same statement simultaneously. For men who aren't alpha males this may not be the fragrance for them. This is the kind of fragrance you have to be able to carry well, and not everyone can do it. I personally love it! I feel it's one of the best if not the best.

I heard so much about it that I loved it before I smelled it. I couldn't wait to smell it. Then when the guy at the Creed boutique sprayed it on the card and I took my first whiff.... I honestly didn't know what to think. I wasn't sure if I liked it. I kinda did and kinda didn't. But I took a sample home to try it on my skin, and after wearing it for a day it became an addictive scent that I loved more and more as the day went by. It projects beautifully off my skin and the tropical scent mixed with the smoky musk smell is just a strong balance made for a strong man. I crave the smell of it all the time.

Classic. A true powerhouse. This fragrance gets compliments and it gets inquiries. It's very intriguing.

Very good but not worth the price IMO. I understand the quality in ingredients which you can tell right from the opening to the end. The opening is one of the best but the pineapple doesn't last. The smoke and tar take over which smell good but just a tad much. I am a fan of smokey scents but this would have been a 10 if the pineapple was amped up and intertwined better with the smoke. Im sure I will catch flack for this but oh well.

This is a great fragrance, it does smell very good. The batch I got does smell a little more citrus than it does pineapple but, that apparently is one of the main problems with Aventus, consistency. Longevity is slightly better than average, sillage and projection are above average as well.

First I compared this to my Insurrection II Pure. I do have to admit that Aventus is a little better. Aventus is smoother and more natural. Pure does have a great pineapple note and does resemble Aventus a great deal but, it does smell a little more synthetic. It has a bit of a ... I want to say musty smell, but I don't know if that is the right word. Pure actually has better longevity, sillage and projection than Aventus, at least on my skin it does. For the price difference I don't believe Aventus is worth it, in my opinion.

Now I would like to compare Aventus to Pineapple Vintage and Pineapple Vintage Noir. The difference between Vintage and Vintage Noir is mainly this, Vintage is more pineapple and less smoky, noir is less pineapple and more smoky. I prefer the Noir version and it smells very much like Aventus, in my opinion, but better. Both of these scents are very natural smelling and are of good quality for sure. They are about $85 dollars for a 100ml bottle. From now on I will be purchasing Pineapple Vintage Noir instead of Aventus. They are less expensive, smell just as good if not better and don't smell at all synthetic, which is my only gripe with Insurrection Pure.

Sorry Aventus, with these alternatives I will not be buying you anymore. If your price was more reasonable, maybe I would not have searched for an alternative so diligently. I don't believe there would be so many alternatives if your price was more reasonable. Anyway, so long Aventus enjoy your overpriced life, hello Pineapple Vintage Noir, please do not change your formulation.

Love the pineapple in this. Starts off with a blast, then the smokiness and woodiness starts to come through. If the wind is blowing, you get another hit of pineapple, nicely balanced with the rest. It lasts ages, hours and hours. I usually do one spray on the neck, and another on the opposite side of my chest, and that's it for the day.

I was standing in a queue the other day and a woman kept leaning over towards my neck, I thought she was going to ask what I was wearing. The guy she was with wasn't too happy.

Ridiculously expensive.

I've owned this fragrance for about 2 months now. I let my Brother sprtiz some Aventus on this afternoon. It really is amazing to experience this scent (as well as other scents) on someone else rather than your own skin. I immediately pick up more pineapple as opposed to when I wear it, I get more of a smokey smell. Just a single spray and my room is filled with Aventus. It really gives me a whole different take on fragrance. The wearers become oblivious to the scent where as someone around them can still smell them hours after application, and again as I mentioned, I smell different notes compared to when it is on my skin. Skin chemistry is a crazy thing.

I wear this, as well as Green Irish Tweed, and both are classics and hold themselves high in my collection. As I've stated in a previous review, an amazing scent, and certainly nothing compares to this from what I own. Great job Oliver and Erwin Creed!

Finally got a bottle after trying it so many times. You do get use to the fragrance and think it is gone then all of the sudden smell it again. I have got REALLY great compliments from this fragrance where the person keeps saying omg you smell so good like 6 times in a night and it has happened multiple times. I mostly get it if the wind is slightly blowing better then a dry day i have noticed. Really love it for the spring and summer when the pineapple comes out more!

After going through a few testers I've decided It's a great fragrance but just not for me. For me it came down to following three P's.

Price: For the cost of one bottle I feel I could buy several other fragrances that I would enjoy much more, and if I were to spend that kind of money I would get a bottle of GIT.

Performance: On me it's just not very good.

Pineapple: There's alot of it, and I'm just not a huge fan of that much pineapple in fragrances.

That said, I wouldn't discourage anyone from trying or buying Aventus. It just didn't float my boat for the above reasons. If there was less pineapple and better performance I could see myself more open to getting a bottle.

I've tested this fragrance multiple times over the past winter after receiving sample decants & many sprays from a tester from authorized retailers here in Canada. Those retailers were Nordstrom & Holt Renfrew, so the juice is 100% authentic. I can't comment on which batches I have tested, although some are smokier/fruitier than others, this is true.

I tested Aventus six separate times, six sprays each time on my skin and during the heart of the Canadian winter months, although I was mostly indoors.

I don't know what it was, but I couldn't smell it on my skin or clothes after approximately an hour after applying. My skin doesn't absorb fragrances to the point where you can't smell them, either. After spending an hour talking fragrances with the sales rep, he couldn't smell it either.

That being said, after a few days of my jacket hanging in the closet, I put it on to go out and got an immediate whiff of the pineapple after putting it on. This didn't last while wearing the jacket that night but this kept occurring for the next month when I would put the same jacket back on. Perhaps it's olfactory fatigue?

I even applied six sprays right before going out with the guys one night and one guy always makes cracks about my perfumes/colognes, but, I didn't hear anything that time.

Ultimately, I like the strong pineapple opening, but that's all I get out of it. I found it underwhelming to say the least. Would I recommend blind buying based on the hype? Definitely not. However, if you have the jack to spend rather than making a car & mortgage payment and want to get it? Do it!

At the end of the day, it's a status thing. I'd compare it to buying a Zegna suit or Tom Ford cashmere sweater; it makes you feel like a million bucks when you wear it. Are there alternatives that will get the job done better and for far less jack? In my opinion, most definitely. In my fragrance journey I've worn other designer scents that have garnered me far more compliments & positive attention from the ladies.

I'm going to test this again in the heat of the summer, however, I don't believe that this is worthy of buying a bottle, especially at retail. Maybe the hot weather will make a difference in projection & longevity? If so, I will update my review.

If there's one thing to take from this lengthy review, please don't get scammed online by someone selling a bottle or decant at a lower than normal price. Definitely go into the authorized retailers or Creed boutique and sample this before you buy.

Finally, don't take my word for it, we're all different. Sample Aventus for yourself and form your own opinion about it!

I like Creed Aventus. But it's overhyped. Must be some out of the park cognitive dissonance going on with the people saying this is the best fragrance ever. I'd probably say that too if I used 240 $ on a fragrance.

Creed Aventus is interesting if you've never smelled anything like it before. Upon the first sniff, you're thinking "Wow, I didn't know smoky pineapple could smell this good". Because that's what it is. Smoky pineapple. If you're nose is trained, you can catch a glimpse of the vanilla in there, but it is by no means very apparent in the composition.

It smells masculine and dirty. And masculine in a powerful kind of way. The performance seems spotty, because you'll find yourself being unable to detect the smell on yourself after just a few hours, although people were able to smell it on me longer. It's by no means a "beast" though, as the projection and sillage stay moderate throughout.

All in all, it's a versatile fragrance that you can pretty much use all year round, as long as it's not too hot or too cold. Not a formal scent in my opinion, but something for casual events. If you want something more formal and expensive-smelling, I'd go for Dior Homme Parfum. And ironically, that one is a hundred dollars cheaper.

To understand why Creed Aventus is so great requires context. Smelling Aventus without a broad knowledge of the perfume world milieu is like reading T.S. Eliot without context: it just sounds like gibberish. Aventus is not the most complex, the most exotic, or the most flat-out seductive fragrance in the world, by far. But connoisseurs who've smelled thousands of fragrances should (hopefully) understand that Aventus has accomplished something that no other fragrance has. In the way Aventus combines notes that have never met before, it has essentially reinvented the masculine fragrance by encapsulating a sense of modern, refined masculinity in a way that no other fragrance has. Many have tried to by simply polishing and recombining classic fougere ingredients like a refurbished iPod, but none have truly created a new standard like Aventus. More than just the sum of its parts, Aventus creates a feeling in the wearer that can only be described as "Daniel Craig a la Skyfall".

So a buddy of mine at work was talking Aventus up, pretty much like most of the reviews below. 'The best fragrance you will ever smell', he said. 'It'll be like a Lynx advert', he said... So off I went in to my local department store walking past the uninterested make up girls, slyly thinking 'you'll be interested in a minute when I spray this bad boy on me'. I anxiously approached the Creed section, waiting for a light to beam down from the heavens above as I reached for the bottle. Hmm no light.. I sprayed the fragrance on both wrists for good measure. Waited approx 30 seconds.... andddddddd...... erm yeah it's a pleasant fresh scent probably worth around £40. I walked around shopping for a couple of hours, going back to it occasionally for another smell.

I just really don't get it. How on earth could I spend hundreds of pounds on this? After doing more research around the re-forumulation and batches, it just reinforced my thoughts. If I could smell the original formula and it's as good as people say, then perhaps I would cough up the money. I did for Tom Fords Tuscan Leather and that consistently delivers. But with all the variables and risks with Creed Aventus and then you end up with what I smelt.. there's no way I'd put all that money down.

Absolutely outstanding fragrance! Truly one of a kind and genuine in it's own way. A word of advice. After a couple of uses with this fragrance, let it sit and mature. Let it evolve. I find it does make a difference when it has time to age it tends to last a lot longer!

Ah - the enigma that is Aventus. The first time I wore this, a 15u11 decant, I have honestly never experienced anything like it. That day everyone & anyone came up to me asking what I was wearing, even 9 hrs after 4-5 sprays it just kept getting stronger. Alas - that experience never happened again but oh how I have searched, bought many decants, sprayed many times in John Lewis - average performance every time. I'll never understand it.

That was the greatest fragrance experience I had & I was hooked - so off I went trying most of the clones or smell-a-likes, it didn't matter - just wanted something that smelled similar but was consistent. So, the The CLOSEST I have found was actually a cheap clone from ebay which I just got - very close - more so even than CDNI. I got 2 x 30ml bottles for £18.

In my opinion, Royal Vintage is the best Aventus style fragrance (not the closest) but at the price you pay I don't see the point unless you actually like it better than Aventus.

For under £50, I like Silver Supremacy the most - it may not be technically as close as Pineapple vintage classic (too expensive), Club de Nuit Intense or the cheap ebay clone - but I love it. It is based on older Aventus - so doesn't have that vanilla fresh pineapple opening of current Aventus. Rumz Rasassi is just awful as is Insurrection ii - both terribly synthetic.

This is my list of Aventus alternatives that I find closest to the real thing (note - not in order of the ones I like better).

1. Cheap Ebay clone
2. Pineapple Vintage Classic
3. Club de Nuit Intense
4. Al Dur Maknoon (a better opening than CDNI, but I don't enjoy it - CDNI dry down is better. Becomes less Aventus like as time goes on)
5. Royal Vintage (this is my favourite of all on the list)
6. Supremacy Silver (based on 'older' Aventus - my 2nd favourite)
7. Insurrection ii (Awful - 2nd worse on the list)
8. Scent of Peace for him (opens similar to Aventus - becomes a sickly tutti frutti scent in the dry down)
9. Cedrat Boise
10. Rumz al Rasssi Pour Lui (awful awful - worst on the list)

I really do like Cedrat Boise but performance isn't great & it isn't cheap.

The cheap Ebay clone will be my everyday Aventus style scent along with Silver Supremacy. If Pineapple Vintage was under £65 I may be tempted to use that as my everyday Aventus style scent. I am torn between actual Aventus & Royal Vintage for the special occasions - Royal Vintage is more consistent so I may opt for that. It is Aventus unreliability which sent me on this quest- can't be bothered any more with its unreliability.

I only have two more 'clones' to try then I am done with trying to find the perfect Aventus clone with a balance of closeness, performance, consistency & price.

Not really a review but a warning...
Be careful, the market is full of fakes. GIT, SMW and Aventus in the 120ml packaging are the most common fakes, often sold as "Tester" here in Italy and moreover in Milan,is easyer tu buy a fake than a genuine creed. I see so many differences in the reviews here, buy only in certified boutiques if you wish to put a review.

Fresh, sharp, masculine and very long lasting, 10-20 hours on my skin. Both generic and unique. Smells a bit like gasoline in some odd way and the birch note is strong, but the drydown is still lovely. Stays fresh all the way through but the sweetness and musk takes over in a nice way. Awesome quality but I am not sure it is worth the high price. Mabey I would prefer another batch...

Just got it from Fragrancebuy (I'd never pay full retail price for Creed products! I'm not that crazy!!).

I must say I hesitated a lot before I made a move -- even at a discount price it's still a lot of money for a fragrance. There's also all those discussions about batch variations, about clones that are supposed to smell almost identical to Aventus and about the fact the the house of Creed is overrated.

What convinced me of buying a 2.5oz bottle is that:

- batch variations are just that -- variations. We're not talking about differents fragrances!
- clones are just that -- clones. They're synthetic, and sometimes too harsh (with the initial spray)
- Aventus is perhaps overrated, but here in Montreal it's still not too known as a niche product. And because there are not a lot of men working in my office I can still claim that I'll be wearing something truly original

This is my 1st niche purchase -- I'm so excited!

I fit the camp that loves Aventus. Loves....Aventus. But just does not want to shell out that next level money for a bottle. Unless...I simply cannot find an alternative. I'm having this issue with Tom Ford's Patchouli Absolu and Tobacco Oud, love them, can't find an alternative.

I found my acceptable alternatives to this fragrance that suit my somewhat snobbish collector nose but also account for my bank account, which isn't such that I need to plunk down 3-4 bills for a fragrance.

I don't know why this site hasn't created entries for Pineapple vintage and Pineapple Noir by Parfums vintage but they need to.

Because they have replaced Aventus for me for now. For just a slight drop in smoky richness and fruity nuance I get the same fragrance palate experience with just as positive of an effect on others as far as I can tell.

I'm so glad I don't live in the USA dammit!! All those who are saying that aventus is no more "exclusive" and that its smelled everywhere these days thats probably just because you live in the wrong place!! I mean, I live in a Canada and I'm probably the only one in my city that wear aventus. People around me are always shocked to smell this because they never smelled something like this before and its very unique. I worked in a very big club with thousands of men wearing perfume each night and I never smelled aventus. Also in the bus, subway, mall, or any bars/restaurant/club.. NEVER I smelled aventus on someone else. So... I don't understand all of you saying its now everywhere. I was joking about being the only one in my city that wear aventus but seriously, maybe there are SOME little connaisseur/fragrance amateur that knows it and have it too but nothing more... Its not like Aqua di Gio, LeMale, 1 Million.. where these are REALLY everywhere! :)

Ahh!! finally the King is in my collection and what more can i say about this gem. i have had purchased a lot of its clones and none can match the heights of aventus. the quality is top notch and these clones can never come close.
All the reviewers comparing it with CDNI or other clones are just fooling themselves.
Aventus is something not to be worn but to experience atleast once in your lifetime.

Update: just three sprays and it lasts to more than 8 hours. Wow.. this is perfection par excellence..
i regret spending money on clones, going to throw all of them.

You dont need to drop 200$+ on this to receive compliments. You can receive compliments with 20$ too.

The price for this along with batch variation is hilarious. Overpriced + a hassle to get a proper batch. No thanks, rather stock up on designer fragrances that garner as much or more compliments.

Unless you have disposable income I dont see why you'd get this. Maybe a decant but not a full bottle.

Fact of the matter is most people dont give a rats ass if you're wearing niche or not. As a matter of fact most of the general crowd thinks niche smell weird.

Only from a collector/hobby perspective can one justify getting this. Even then its hard to justify considering the batch problems and its overpriced.

Oh well.

For any serious perfume aficionado, Creed Aventus is the foundation. I cannot identify a more versatile, fresh and masculine essence out there. Aventus still is the "go to" in terms of awesome top fragrances that garners compliments, remains timeless and gives you sheer joy to wear. But as the story goes haters will hate... On the minus side, this frag has a very short life and sillage is not very powerful (scent stays close ro the skin after about an hour), this is unacceptable at this price range.

Scent: 10/10
Longevity: 5/10
Sillage: 5/10
Cost ratio: 4/10

Overall: 6/10

You must at least try this one. If you dont mind the astronomical price then I would say it is a must-have in any serious perfume collection.

Aventus is amazing but there is a problem. Creed have sold themselves out. Its available everywhere now and as a result is no longer exclusive. Aventus' increase in popularity has resulted in two things: the price has soared, and you now smell it everywhere. It used to be special but when you walk into a newsagents in the middle of the day and smell it on the guy behind the counter you know it's lost its edge. Ive had my 75ml bottle for 2 years but I won't be buying this juice again. Shame.

I tested this to see what the huge hype is all about...I think it's just that, hype. It's nice, sweet and sour, but woody and musky at the same time but I wouldn't say extraordinary. I think the pineapple note is the reason it's considered unusual, that note is not used very often. Gives it a tropical edge. Lasts really well and the dry down is really masculine, a lot of musk. It is very pleasant, I just don't understand the huge hype.

Bill Murray who do you agree with then ? People who can't smell a difference between a pineapple/apple or wood/birch heavy batch ? People who don't notice when the smell is gone after 2 hours or 12 hours ? If you don't smell a difference then there is something really wrong with your nose. And if people who enjoy a more pineapple vs a more woody batch are snobs then is everyone who has more than one fragrance a snob since they choose to use what they like. Clueless guy

Aventus is a great fragrance, which is why so many try to dupe it but so many keep buying the real stuff anyway. I got my husband into wearing it several years ago and he's gone through 5 bottles since. I will personally testify that one does not need an 'acute' sense of smell to be able to tell the differences in the batches lol. Anyone with a working nose who has worn the fragrance enough can tell when it's different. My husband couldn't care less about fragrances and actually has no idea about the arguments people get into over this fragrance that he wears. But he called it on the second bottle I got him that it wasn't the same as the first.

The best analogy I have is this: It's like when you've gotten so in tune with your car and how it feels and sounds when you drive it that one tiny little new noise stands out like a sore thumb. All fragrances that use natural materials have some variations in batches because crops are not consistent year to year because of the weather. Same with wine. A good growing season for grapes = better wine. Batch variations IS a thing and fragrantica IS the place to discuss it. If you dislike that then don't read the discussions, it's simple. And if you can't tell the differences in the batches then I'd say you just haven't worn it enough. And I'm not being condescending. Just speaking from experience. ❤

I agree with others. Want to laugh, then read the fragrance snobs reviews comparing the different batches of Creed Aventus. There are wine snobs and there are the Creed Aventus "I can discern the best and worst batches" snobs. Creed Aventus snobs are far worse. It's absolutely hilarious reading these people extol their ability to discern batch variations and then rank different batches of Aventus based on supposed differences in the quality of ingredients. Some will say batch "x2ffre2" has excellent pineapple, but not much smoke. Others will disagree and say this same batch doesn't have that much pineapple. And these kinds of examples go on and on. Sadly, even though people don't agree on which batches have the best or most pineapple or most smoke, etc; there are individuals asking others "What batch of Aventus should I buy".

It doesn't matter that the people their asking don't even know the Aventus recipe and ratio of ingredients... their supposedly incredibly acute "nose" can discern differences in even the smallest molecule. Doesn't matter that they don't understand that one person's idea of pineapple in a fragrance can be far different from another person's. Or how your nose perceives a fragrance now can can actually change over time. Also, they forget that their nose and brain can get used to a fragrance so they no longer smell the fragrance, even though others do, and instead blame it on batch difference and poor longevity. And then there's the bizarre and creepy complaint that one batch of Aventus didn't receive the same amount of compliments as another batch; as if the whole goal of wearing a fragrance was to count the number of compliments received at each wearing. I enjoy wearing Aventus and I don't care that more and more people are wearing it. Great longevity, good sillage, and an amazing opening, middle, and dry down make Aventus enjoyable to wear.

To the person below me, typically as far as I am aware, Creed only produces clear juices for their fragrances. If you bought it off of the internet, inspect every single aspect of the bottle (ie. The color of the tab under the atomizer button should be white (clear), etc). There are usually forums and posts dedicated to fakes and the real deals for Creed Fragrances.


Good luck.

@ a.kittilsen honestly, its worth investing in Aventus. Although it has changed in formulation (from some saying due to bans of certain ingredients and batch numbers and whatnot) in my opinion, regardless of the fact that the "old Aventus" some had the pleasure of smelling before the change, is in fact still Aventus. You still get that french apple, the birch, the pineapple, the ambergris. Due to batch variations unfortunately what you get will fluctuate. In my opinion one of MY most loved fragrances in my collection.

I may be the recent owner of a 30ml bottle, but I am starting to regret not buying a bigger bottle like a 75ml or even 120ml. My batch is quite smoky which I enjoy. To each their own. At the end of the day, Aventus is what you make of it.

i have very mixed feelings about this one now.
i bought a flask back in 2013 and it was amazing. lots of pineapple but the best part was the smokey part.
ofc i ran through my bottle quickly as it was hand down "the best fragrance i have ever smelt".

in 2014, i bought another bottle, and turns out that one was heavy on the pineapple and light on the smoke.
and i didnt really care much for it. i sold it last year.

and now, ive spent a fortune on fragrances, but nothing compares to the first bottle of Aventus.
and Aventus is now expensive as f***.
do i want to spend 400$ + customs to get it?
at that price-point its all about diminishing returns. at some point its not really worth the price.

i would pay 100$ for something that is 30% better something at 50$, but i wouldnt pay 400$ for something that is 10% better than the one at 100$

i really miss aventus, but at this point its too much of a risk.

How things changed!

It's funny cause few years ago,everyone looked for the fruity batches and complained that Aventus is more on the smoky side.

Nowadays people complain that Aventus is more on the fruity side and looking for {if there is any?}smoky batches.

{I loved Aventus when was on fire back in the days,and it's true that in current batches something is missing}


{But i'm afraid that is not only the birch which has toned down}

I have a 2011 batch of aventus and I also have a 2015 batch of it.

The smell is EXACTLY the same quality..

In fact my 2015 batch is smokier and better performance than the 2011 one.

Creed is an overhyped brand, it's true, but I have Amouage fragrances, Xerjoff fragrances, Etc etc... and I can say at 100% that the most NATURAL and BETTER quality ingredients are creed ones, without any doubt.

So we can like or not creed fragrances. I only love two of them, Green Irish Tweed and Aventus, But I have a lot of fragrances, and I can say that the most fresh, natural and BETTER ingredientes are the creed ones, no doubt.

It was my favorite perfume for several years. Today it is not anymore. Occupy the 3rd position actually...
But it's unanimous, all my friends when come to my house and want to know my collection, choose the Aventus as the best of them all.
Type of perfume that after 6 hours you may not feel it, but a person after 10 or 12 hours asks: "What wonderful perfume is this? I never seen anything like it"
And this is the Aventus ... simple but different, sophisticated, elegant and awakens the curiosity of everyone around you.

Well, I've finally done it. I have smelled the notorious Aventus. The pineapple note is unmistakeable but it disappeared quite quickly on my skin. The rest of the scent is a smokey, soapy aroma which I find very enjoyable, very pleasing. Part of me wishes that I would have discovered this fragrance on my own and then realized its popularity, rather than hear it so widely discussed so extensively. I can see why it's a best-selling, but I can't own this 21st century Acqua di Gio in good conscience

Well what can I say - smell is amazing. my wife can't stop sniffing me. The only issue I have is this - longevity is really good - 24 hours easily. but projection - good for the first or two hours and that's it (atleast what i can smell).
Some reviewers say IT WILL GET BETTER OVER TIME. Let's hope it's true. I WANT BETTER PROJECTION!
I don't care about batches in terms of smell cuz let's face it - they are 99% the same. I only care about projection.

I own hundreds of different scents - all.

I love 13Z01 and 14M01 but then personally I like the really fruity batches. It's a real shame they just don't all smell the same and once these rare batches have gone.Aventus off the shelf will be nice but just simply not the same .

Who cares if a fragrance is number 1 most complemented or number 50? If you like the fragrance and it resonates with you.. wear it. One shouldn't be doing things for others in a fashion sense. Fashion is self expression. If you worry constantly what others think, you'll constantly be searching to appeal to others which is, well, pointless. Aventus resonates with me, so it suits me - who is anyone else to say otherwise?

If a little kid wants to wear Bois Du Portugal, let him. Little chap is probably going to turn out sophisticated. Just cause he's 12 doesn't mean he shouldn't do something or wear Polo Blue because it's more age appropriate.

We're hear to rate fragrances. Rate the fragrance and respect others opinion. No one is wrong for feeling how they do. 10/10 fragrance.

I think reviewers should start stating their age when reviewing a product, it gives better perspective. Just like certain clothes are tailored for a specific age group, colognes are the same way. Creed may be the most complimented colgne, but for men over the age of 50. Im 35 and whenever i ask a girl her opinion of AC they always say NO...NO...ill try and sample this one more time but im sure ill get the same result

To Josephazzato:

it's your opinion, and I respect that, but... men....

I have more than 500 fragrances.. and aventus is my..

- less complimented fragrance by other Man..
- MOST complimented fragrance by woman.. by far. and I'm not saying one or who women that are the exception as you say. I'm saying ALL woman.

Reflection Man being second one.

So it's your opinion, If aventus doesn't rule to you, I respect, but to many people, it's the MOST complimented fragrance by woman ever....

One of the best fragrances I have smelt. It's mysterious and deep, while still being light. It's sophisticated and seductive. On me it's semi fruity with a good presence of a smokey deep leather. Starts of with the pineapple and morphs into a smokey leather. The pineapple remains throughout.
I don't think there is a better summer/spring scent to be found. Works day or night. Works best on a stylish man.

There's just nothing quite like it. I don't know how a scent powered by pineapple could ever pull off a masculine vibe, but this one does. This is a perfectly balanced fragrance, as well as ageless. I get the pineapple all the way through the drydown, along with all those other notes we know and love. Overhyped? Possibly. But it is unique to my nose - and distinctive. And classy. And masculine. And so much more.

It's....nice. That's about all I can say for this astronomically hyped fragrance. I put off wearing this one for a long time but the other day I was in saks and got a big ole sample from my friend who works there. Actually, I got three samples...this, Himalaya(reviewed yesterday) and Bois du Portugal(an old favorite). I put on 6 squirts on my neck and one squirt shared on my wrists and went about my day. First off there is a huge citrusy appley thing going on...no getting around it. Smells like a tropical salad or perhaps the syrup from fruit cocktail they used to,serve in school. It's good...if relatively weak. The thing I noticed about this perfume is that it seems to get stronger the longer you wear it. It also turns smokey...like grilled pineapple...after about 30 minutes. I like ve the house of creed, and I know this is their "golden child", but for my money Royal Oud and Bois du Portugal and even spring flowers for women are MUCH better and more distinct. Even Himalaya that I tried yesterday is, in my opinion, as good or better than this. Now don't get me wrong, I do like, and could probably even get to love this perfume if given enough time, but with tons of others out there to experience, I just couldn't be bothered with a long courtship.

Scent 8/10....beautifully macerated and well designed note wise.
Projection 6/10...bas d on my limited interaction, it's pretty moderate...I had to ask those around me if they could smell it and they could...but only in my circle
Fortitude 7/10...it's been...oh...5 hours or so and I can still smell it around my head when I move and sniff. Could be better...could be worse
Full bottle worthy?...I'm on the fence with this one. At creed prices, I'd say probably not. If I had a good decant shop I could trust, then maybe 25 or 30 mils would be more my speed. I'll stick with the 5 I have and try it again before spending any cash

Fruit salad of the sporty and refined variety. Sounds unlikely, and it is. The mix of the generous fruitiness with dry, blonde wood and sporty musk certainly works for me, though. I enjoy bergamot and particularly in fragrances marketed to men - citrusy, but not too literal. The oakmoss certainly does its part in keeping the composition on the elegant side, as does the ambergris.

The exorbitant price tag probably adds to its appeal, honestly, but even so, it is a highly enjoyable composition. I could see myself wearing a lot of male-marketed fragrances, but for some reason not this one. There's somewhat of an electric blue sporty shower gel note in it that prevents me from identifying with it to that extent, I suppose. Still, will be giving my SO a cheeky spray of this from time to time.

Even at the risk of making a few enemies, I have to admit that I just do not understand the cult following associated with this fragrance. Aventus is a perfectly likeable fragrance, but it doesn't really distinguish itself from the multitude of good fruity-spicy scents on the market.

For context, I found Aventus more distinguished in its early days. When I first encountered it in early 2011, it had the more pronounced smokiness that is now increasingly absent. That pungent birch tar gave Aventus an added dimension that it now sorely lacks. Without the smoke, you are left with a slightly sour, woody citrus that feels more like a designer fragrance than a supposed niche titan. While it still smells nice, it utterly fails to justify the exorbitant price tag.

I've never been a huge Creed fan - even though I will always have Green Irish Tweed on hand. But I have to congratulate their marketing department on the huge success of Aventus, which is pretty undeniable. Personally, though, I can think of about fifty fragrances that I rate more favorably than the current version of Aventus.

@emt1986 - best review I've read yet *claps* I have 16F01 for anyone who happens to want to stumble upon an excellent batch number.

For anyone considering buying Aventus soon. Just pull the trigger. Buying from a legit source and having your wallet weigh a little less is worth saving money on something fake and you'll be reminded every time you sniff that "discounted" bottle. I pop the cap off the bottle just to smell it every now and then!

The only fragrance I own that garners more compliments in the 4-8 hour mark than in the first 4 hours after application. This sexy beast leaves a scent trail that's extremely hard to compete with. This can be worn all seasons by pretty much anyone over the age of 25. This is citrus done right! Why do you have to bleed everyone's pocket books though Creed? The fragrance is spectacular but the price is completely crappy leaving many to dismiss this one as overrated. I don't blame those folks. If you can pick up a decant inexpensively I would say pull the trigger on it! 30 ML of this is still better than a 100 ML of the knock off houses. Just get the real thing. However.. .if you purchase this full retail I will know for a fact that you have been royally screwed. Great fragrance and but terrible price.

Regarding the working for chanel bla bla. First of all many people just use the anonymity of such platforms to talk BS all day. No one can really verify anything thats being thrown at them. Many are just little kings of very little hills in real life but act as if they are running the world of fragrances as soon as they login to their accounts here. I could tell you whatever story i like and you are forced to just either believe me or keep your doubts to yourself to not get yourself into senseless arguments. Thats all it is.

Btw, i know a few people who work for world wide famous retailers and parfumeries (even in France) and their range of knowledge about fragrances is an effin joke.

Ginny 17: you have made your point (about 14 times).
You think the fragrance is worth the price, because it smells good on your husband.
Apart from that you do not add a lot in terms of scent experience.
You seem to keep defending Creed and Aventus; there is no need for that. Lovers are lovers and there will always be haters.
You love it, but have some restraint, after all, this a review page, or else, try to be original and have a sense of humour.

2017 Batch?
----
Correction: Sorry I've been tricked by the fact that the store was out of stock and was waiting for the very first shipment of the year. After checking the number, the batch appears to be from 2016.. 16A21. I hope the review to be useful nonetheless and un-related to the latest "arguments" that have been going on recently.
----
Ok, I've never been into the Aventus batch thingy nor have I ever purchased one bottle but I did smell multiple of them in different cities.

I've been to the store which let me an Aventus sample that has just returned in stock.
I'll do my best to break it down for you. The start is slightly soury or "tart" and grilled-pineapple intensive but not overwhelming, enough to be very pleasing. It finally sets with a touch of vetivert and smoky-vanilla after going through a brief "tutti-frutti" moment (italian expression to indicate a flavor or smell of several fruits all-together).

I think Creed is onto something here. In fact I'm very happy with that smoky-vanilla note which is very accurate, at least for me. Don't misunderstand, but as I get some "whiffs" coming from my wrist every once in a while, I'm reminded of a car scent: of course in the good way and very high quality.

Compared to "The Orchid Man" from Frapin, which I find it 95% similar, I'd say this is slightly brighter and more appealing, even wearable during summer. TOM instead sets down with a less-smoky but leathery vetivert and darker notes and you don't get a fruity impression.

Hope this helps! Does it fit its price? Yes. Would I buy it over TOM? Likely.

Longevity: Will update.

Sillage: Will update. For the moment being: more than moderate, less than heavy.

9/10 just because it's an all-rounder and an all-pleaser and not enough "detailed" as I expect a niche perfume to be.

hafidzummc, I have to reply to you as you mentioned that you work in a hospital combined with usage of strong perfumes. Even if you get compliments from patients when wearing Aventus it's not OK at all.
I meet a lot of patients at work (Swedish hospital) and we are advised to not wear perfumes because we have to respect those who are sensitive to it. It's also important to remember that you shouldn't use perfume before going to a hospital as a patient or relative.

I just bought this! Absolutely in love!! I sprayed a single spray on my wrist and it already projects like wildfire! Just a single spray and it feels like I have sprayed 2-3 sprays. It starts off with a woodsy scent. With a slight bit of apple and I can also get some pineapple! I can't wait to get into the dry down!

Good to hear you let your aventus mature for at least 3 months...that's the way to go...now 16a01 is absolutely not even close to a smokey batch...16a01 and 16e21 are the most pineapple heavy batches from 2016...and since aventus has no smoke in it since 2014 due to ingredients being banned...you could mistake it with a woody smell but that's also weird for one of the pineapple heavy batches. Got 16a01 also BTW and after letting it mature for a few months ist really really good now. Of the 8 different 2016 batches I got are 16c01 16a01 16d01 and 16e21 the ones to look for...like more fruity aventus look for batches 16a01 & 16e21...looking for more balanced batches between wood blackcurrant and pineapple look for batches 16c01 & 16d01

perfect longevity, sillage and compliment factor!

im working long hours in the hospital so that gives me a window to challenge the perfumes in my collection in terms of longevity (especially) and as i have close contact with staff and patients, getting compliments for evrything i wear (including my perfume) is inevitable lol. i wear aventus again today after letting it rest at the back of the shelf for almost 3 months.

this is what i get today:
1) longevity: 9th hour now and its still going strong
2) sillage: my nurse told me she knew i was in my room because she could smell me there even after i left
3) compliment: others told me not to leave the room cuz they like to smell me rather than the typical smell of a clinic in the hospital (im immune to it anyway)
and i received my 3rd compliment just now.

i get more smoke at the beginning and as it dries the fruity accord becomes more prominent. i couldnt stress more that among the 7 creeds that i have, this is the best im terms of longevity and compliment. ill always have this in my collection.

my batch is 16A01

10/10 all d way!!

More of a comment than a review. Apparently many people complained about the smoky batches and preferred the fruity batches. Aventus now delivers a fruitier smell, because that is what the market demanded. A minority of people preferred the smokier nuances of Aventus, so they were always bound to be disappointed.

The existence of Interlude Man proves that powerful smoke accords can be achieved in modern perfumery. So I have no doubt that Creed could add more smoke to Aventus again, if they really wanted to.

Yeah it's not the same anymore. Smokey aventus does not exist anymore unless you add birch tar into your aventus.but most people don't smell the difference between wood and smokey anyway lol.

Plus performance of the more fruity batches are really weak if the scent has not matured for a few months yet

I think people have a right to know that Aventus has degenerated as much as it has BEFORE they pull the trigger and buy it. There is no doubt that it has been reformulated because Oakmoss has been banned from perfumery. I'm happy I have a 2010 because I have tested the authentic Aventus that is currently available for purchase and it is a shell of what it used to be. Honestly you are far better off buying Dior Sauvage or Chanel Bleu over the current formulation of Aventus. This review is to help people from waisting there money. Another thing I've noticed is that retailers are using an older pre-reformulated bottle of Aventus as a tester and suckering people into buying it thinking that they are purchasing the exact same juice. I would give anything to have the original formula Aventus back. It was everything that people hyped it up to be lady killer, panty dropper all that. It was the ultimate men's fragrance without a doubt. However I absolutely cannot say that about the current version. It is an absolute joke. We've seen this same tragedy happen to fragrances like Dior Fahrenheit, JPG Le Male, YSL La Nuit, etc, etc. Well now unfortunately it has happened to our beloved Aventus.

Creed Aventus opens up citrusy (bergamot with maybe a hint of the apple, but if you don't know that apple is in there it's unrecognizable). It dries down to a masculine and sexy woody smell (birch & ambergris); the other notes I don't smell.

It is good for dates or work where you may need to impress. If compliments are what you buy fragrances for, then this may be the one for you.

Performance - Depends on how much you spray 2-4 and you may get 6hrs+, 4-6 and you may get close to 8hrs+.

Sillage - Again it depends on how many sprays you apply, little for little to no sillage, a lot and it can be smelt long after.

Projection - I would say it depends on the amount applied - A little and it sits close to the skin or at an arms length, a lot and it projects maybe 2-3 arm lengths away.

Overall, I love the smell, it's seductive, masculine and sexy.

Now the controversy about whether or not it is worth that much will go on forever ..I agree there are lots of great scents out there, so for those who don't think Aventus is worthy, you have a nice selection to choose from!

I've worn Aventus for two weeks now, and this cologne is either a hit or miss. Some people will love it and others will not. The batch that I have is F01 which initially starts off with green apple and birchwood, which I believe conveys war, and then dries down to a creamy vanilla and rose combo, which conveys romance. The vanilla and rose combo doesn't actually smell feminine but was done in such a way to smell masculine and classy. The performance is perfect with only two sprays, no more and no less. 1 spray will be weak and 3 sprays will be too cloying. So just go with two sprays only. Now, we all love stories, so here's my UNBIASED experience with this juice. When I first sprayed it on my neck before I went to work, my sister went inside the room and shouted at me, "OMG, it smells in here! Did you pee inside your pants!?" I was quite embarrassed and thought I was going to smell bad at work, but this fragrance redeemed itself 6 hours later when I was at my lunch break. I was picking some food off from the shelf when I noticed this cute, petite latina abnormally following close beside me. I didn't really paid much attention to it and then proceeded to the computer screen over the counter to pay for my meal. While I was scanning my items, I've noticed the same latina was standing uncomfortably close beside me, her face nearly touching my shoulder. Even though there were other computer screens available which she could use, she was standing too close to me, especially near my neck where I've applied it. So when I was done, I quickly grabbed my food and left. I believe she was smelling the dry down of the creamy vanilla and rose combination. And that is what I noticed about people whenever I wear Aventus: they don't seem to like the opening of the green apple and birchwood but they LOVE the creamy vanilla and rose combination, especially among women. So if you can make the vanilla and rose more prominent in Aventus, this can be a true panty dropper fragrance. Lol!

Even I haven't own one bottle yet I just fall in love by first "snip". (decant) Very distinctive and unique. Opening is very fruity and pineapple was nicely blended with bergamot. somehow dry down made me to feel like in the woods full of birch, little bit of oak moss and wild berries. Of course Vanilla come out nicely to fulfil the completeness.
when you wear Aventus you gonna rock!

I have been following Creed frags for a few months now. Honestly if you cannot decide which to get (assuming between AV and GIT) just get a 30ml bottle of each. You'll save a little bit of money. However I'm shifting towards GIT now... Only because now EVERYONE wants Aventus. And when everyone has it, it won't be special or rare anymore. And these batch issues are freaking me out. I don't want to spend a ton of money on something that doesn't last. Here is to better batches this year from Creed!!

Is this fragrance worth the hype? It kinda depends on why you want it. If you want a very masculine gentlemen scent yes it's amazing if you appreciate what goes into fragrance making again yes. Does it make you confident yes if you can afford a £250 fragrance you should be confident. Does it make you feel sexy maybe... Is it appreciated by the women 36+ maybe. younger girls honestly no I've worn it a lot and I've never had compliments in fact I had one women screw her nose up at it she liked it 5 hours later but before that no. I've had more compliments from 1 million. I honestly say this is a fragrance you should buy for yourself not for others. It's not the compliments monster in my case quite the opposite

Aventus is definitely worth the hype it gets. However, these 2016 batches are by far the worst I have smelled. I know people were crying for more pineapple, but you didn't have to kill the performance. The 2016 juice are more like an EDT cousin of the Aventus I'm used to.

I hope 2017 batches bring back some of the smoky goodness that put Aventus on the map.

Darling Gentleman. Look, here I am, a straight woman* who dropped her panties when I finally got a decant of Aventus...gosh knows, it wasn't even a renowned batch. Take it from me, a woman who nearly gave up perfume back in 1999 because of reformulated Mitsouko...yes, I spat the dummy. Nope, I could not give up perfume. Toying with us, breaking or hearts with reformulations, but we will never surrender. We will find other perfumes, we will go to Serge Lutens, we will spray the most esoteric and obscure, we won't be defeated in our quest. We will scour eBay and fabulous internet sites with batch codes. Then, we will smell the classics, like Angel, and be blown away. But we may go and seek vintage. Seriously, we cannot stop loving perfume. Actually, I am serious, Perfume is art.
* Edited: :):0 :) grandma, but hey, years on the prowl because of the genetic imperative....
But if I'd given up, I would never have smelled the delirious Aventus...

One of the most versatile and non offensive niche scent ever. The only problem about this fragrance is the price. It is overpriced and over hyped in my opinion if you consider the ingredients used.

@SeattleDweller(roughly 18-19 comments below)... Oh my. Thankfully you have just confirmed that Aventus is never the same fragrance... In fact, each batch is a different fragrance and there is no consistency. So what are we paying all that money for? A lie? I'd rather go to a fragrance advisor that knows more than just one house, than listen to someone paid by Creed to make excuses for their failure to correctly produce this mythical, non-existent fragrance called 'Aventus'. Analogy wise, It's similar to selling a dog lover a Whippet but insisting it's actually a Rottweiler... "Well sir, yes it appears that this one has all the characteristics of a Whippet that can run fast and is slight in stature, but it's DEFINITELY still an intimidating and strongly built attack dog... Honest."
Yeah, right.
I'll stick with a consistent Black XS L'Exces or Endymion thanks, at least I know what I'll be getting out of them time after time rather than a Russian roulette of olifactory confusion.

December 9th, 2016 is when I bought a 50ml decant of this (16DO1). Love the smell, horrible performance. I have not bought any fragrances since then. I am done. This hobby is becoming too expensive thus I am now into other hobbies (shoes, skin care etc.). I love fragrances, but I realised that I have more fragrances that will never be use in my lifetime. I get more compliments on my shoes than my fragrances (I am looking at you aventus). With that said, it's been an amazing journey. But my time in the fragrance game has come to an end. I will enjoy what I have and move on to other things. Happy new years everyone.

I have 16E21 and let me tell you, I am done with this. I love the fragrance but Dog dammit, this is becoming a damn joke! Nose fatigue my arse man!! two hours tops and this thing is gone on me, yeah it lasts a little bit better on my shirt but no more than 4 hours...

At these prices? No way I expect an elephant to come out of my bottle and fart smelly fruity amazingly long lasting aventus on me. No such luck.

@Ricks44 why don't you post the batch number of your 2016 Aventus? I don't know if this is a trend or an ill willed attempt by a group of people to hype up popular frags with so called 2016 miracle batches. The same can be seen with La Nuit

So I've been on both sides of the coin with the so called King.

I first received this as a birthday gift early 2014. I'd owned a decant in 2013 also. I loved it but as the story goes, after the first 10 minutes or so... Could not smell it on my self. Same with the 120ml bottle I received. I used to spray it 10-12 times. Always the same story, couldn't smell it after a short while. Gone, never to be smelt again for the day.

I used it up, finishing my bottle February 2016. In that time, I received 4 compliments. I should note, I often get a lot of compliments on my fragrances. The bottle was a legitimate bottle, it smelt amazing. But I couldn't smell it after application.

Fast forward to this year. I bought a so called "decant" from EBay and I'm sure it was a clone as I know the smell well and the seller refused to provide proof of authenticity. Regardless of that, I actually preferred it to Aventus. It was sharper (I enjoy piercing, sharp fragrances). This started a little obsession for me again regarding Aventus. My girlfriend who I went away with to Greece during summer, loved it on me. I bought numerous clones, you all know them. I was disappointed with ALL of them. Either from being stanky, off smelling, terrible longevity/projection etc

Long story short, my girlfriend bought me a 120ml bottle for Christmas. Let me first say, I'm a lucky guy and secondly, I was extremely worried it would be the same deal regarding longevity or perceived longevity. The bottle is a 2016 bottle and it is quite possibly the most powerful, long lasting fragrance I own, or have owned. I sprayed my self and my overcoat on Christmas Day at around 12 mid day. Nearly 5 days later, the room in which the coat is hanging still smells of Aventus... Not only does the coat smell but the entire surrounding area. I've never had a fragrance this powerful.

So to come on here and read the new batches are weak, is confusing. I will say that I can smell it on my self but after say 2 hours I start to become numb to it. But for example, I woke up around 6am on December 26th and ALL I could smell was Aventus. In fact I found it nauseating and sickly. But this was probably due to the fact I was somewhat hungover. This was about 15 hours after I sprayed it on skin and in hair. It was my hair that was housing the fragrance. I only got rid of the smell upon washing my hair.

As for the fragrance and how it smells. It smells exactly like my bottle from 2014 which was a 2013 bottle. It's still ripe, juicy black currant/Apple/pineapple, the so called "smoke" which I find an inaccurate description of the smell. However I don't know how else to describe that particular smell. It's all still there. The only difference I detect is I could pick out jasmine and rose in my first bottle. Here I do get more fruit and I don't get the ambergris dry drown which is obviously prevelant in GIT and MI. I used to get that dry down in Aventus. Now, it clings to its fruity/spicy/smokiness for longer. Which I'm more than happy with.

With this bottle and only wearing it twice. I've already received a few compliments which is always an added bonus.

To add, I was lucky enough to receive from a member of my family a 120ml of Green Irish Tweed. To which I'm over the moon with and find more wearable and receive much more compliments on. Even from having only owned a 15ml decant.

I love them both. But Aventus for me is a summer night only fragrance. It's got the effect of a Mediterranean garden, at night. Sat drinking a fresh can of pinepple juice with citrus trees surrounding, jasmine sweetening up the night air and the dryness of the grass and rocks. It is the possibly the perfect night out holiday scent. For which it will be saved for and I look forward wearing it, somewhere in Italy or Greece sometime in 2017.

For now I will be rocking Green Irish Tweed.

Scent. 9/10
Projection. 9/10
Sillage. 10/10
Longevity. 10/10
Price. 5/10 (Better to receive it as a gift but if you get lucky like I have regarding longevity, projection, sillage etc it makes it much more worth it)

I will say, if it wasn't for being gifted this by my partner, I wouldn't of purchased myself due to the price point.

I'm happy this bottle works extremely well for me and it smells like magic. A head turner, but as I said - I have particular tastes when to wear certain fragrances and this one will sit tight in a dark room until then.

I am torn between buying this or GIT. I have sampled both and they are both wonderful, amazing scents. Not too mention VERY expensive. However, I'm sure that at some point anyone who currently owns a creed fragrance will be able to justify the expense as being well worth it.

So my question, between AV, or GIT? which is more worthy of buying? GIT is less expensive but for arguments sake they are the same price point. Which lasts longer? Which one makes the loudest statement? I'm not looking for a "compliment getter" as I don't feel that is what wearing cologne is all about. You wear it for yourself, and to make yourself feel sexy.

The batches part doesn't phase me. I am aware batches exist for almost if not everything ever made. However there must be quality control and in saying that, it comes down to our skin chemistry. I have had issues with some frags and others have tremendous results. I would just like to know if it's worth shelling out nearly half a grand for a product that will last. I have had great frags from Tom Ford, Valentino, Ralph Lauren, and Chanel. Also, did anyone receive this as a gift over the holidays? And what are your thoughts on it?

When I wear this again and again it reminds me of my childhood days sweet orange candy flavor which people call it here pineapple note or fruity note the dry down is smoky but still has that candy flavor.

now the question is why this so much hype here forcing people to buy this expensive perfume when there are so great perfumes are there in market for better price.

It reminds me an old story of king has no clothes but people overreacted in order to prove themselves smart and can see the king is wearing clothes.

Lesson is never go with the hype, too much expensive smoky pineapple.

May be some people dislike my comment but I wrote what I felt

"Masculine & Sexy"

I won't get into the scent or the notes because everything that had to be said about Aventus has been said. However, I will explain what I love and don't love about Aventus:

Love:

1. I love the fact that Aventus is super sexy but extremely masculine at the same time. You can be rugged and alpha male but also smell extremely sexy.

2. Aventus is the fragrance I wear when I meet with someone for the first time, or when people don't know me well. It a safe choice, leaves an excellent impression, but it is inoffensive as well. If Aventus offends someone, there is seriously something wrong with the person that is being offended.

3. Aventus is a compliment receiver, and it memorizes people. I see it in their eyes!

Don't Love:

1. As an engineer, quality control is extremely important in my job. Creed has failed Aventus in this department because different batches smell differently, and the bottles can be defective. In fact, some bottles are 100% full while some of them are 98-99% full.

2. I paid $250 for Aventus. I also paid $250 for Ambra Aurea from Profumum Roma, $200 for Opus VI from Amouage, and $245 for Xerjoff 1861 Zefiro. I consistently get +12 hour longevity on Ambra Auera, Opus VI, 1861, but 3-4 hour longevity on Aventus.

There should not be an excuse for these defects at this price and quality.

3. Aventus is becoming the Acqua Di Gio of niche fragrances. It is everywhere, so it is not very exclusive.


Final Rating:

If you love fragrances, you must have an Aventus. However,at this price, Aventus must do better. As much as I love the scent, Aventus is inferior to many products in its price range in terms of longevity and performance.

7/10 in its class. 9/10 overall.

The tales were not faux, the stories were not amped up. This fragrance is something that can't simply be described by mortals. In spite of my last comment, I'll try, it has a prominent musk and fruit vibe that dries down into a beautiful sweet, musky and yet fresh culmination. This is a fragrance that will take more of a chunk out of your wallet, being almost 3X more expensive then most high end designer fragrances, but in the little time that I've had it, I've fallen in love. Many perfumeries have tried to copy or utilize the essences from Creed Aventus, but trust me when I say that as of right now there is no counterpart. Creed Aventus is Creed Aventus, there is no other. This is a brilliant fragrance, versatile in warm environments and suitable for most ages - this is a must try for anyone interested in fragrances or even for that matter an amateur. Expensive, unique, brilliant, sexy and highly acclaimed.

It's kind of sad that so many people call this overrated. They are going into this with a negative perspective. They go to smell it with the mindset that they will be absolutely blown away, and when they realize it's nothing more than a good fragrance, they say it's not good because of the price. People go into smelling this for the first time with the idea that Aventus is more than a fragrance. Like it's literally going to have women throwing their phone numbers at you. It's a fragrance. When they see the retail price tag they all say "I don't like it. It's way overpriced" when in reality it's a really good fragrance that is priced pretty fairly if you buy from the grey market.

Things to do when smelling Aventus:
- Ignore the retail price tag. No one buys Creeds at full retail. If you do, you're stupid.
- it's literally oil and alcohol. No magic included.

If you go into smelling this with these two things in mind, you're probably going to enjoy it very much. Don't set your expectations too high or you'll be let down no matter what fragrance it is. I smelled Tobacco Vanille for the first time with 0 research and was absolutely mind fucked. I thought it was amazing. Then I went over to smell Back to Black for the first time with high expectations and was severely let down. A lot of the Aventus hate is in peoples heads.

This one just does it for me. I've had this for 2 years now and still haven't gotten sick of it. It doesn't matter what batch. Yes, they are different and some will smell better than others but overall, Aventus is the most intriguing scent made. The contrast of juicy pineapple and woodsmoke catches peoples attention. I've seriously not been able to wear this without getting at least 2 compliments. Most of the time I'm getting about 4. People always ask what I'm wearing and where they can get it.

As far as batches go, I've tried 14A01, 15Q01, and 16H11.

14A01: very green. Smells like pineapple but has a smokey natural mint smell. Performs great

15Q01: compliments galore. there is 0 pineapple in this batch. It smells like lemon and slightly burnt wood with subtle rose and subtle jasmine. Performance is Nuclear. Fuck what people say about the new batches being water. It's false hype. This is still potent juice.

16H11: I haven't worn it because I own the 17oz flacon. I've only smelled the bottle. Smells unmistakably like pineapple and smoke. Of the 3 batches I've smelled, this one is my favorite smelling.

For some reason, I purchased the 75ml bottle of Aventus straight from the Creed boutique website and they gave me a 120ml bottle for FREE. So I now have two bottles for the price of one. I don't know if it was by accident or it was due to me complaining via email about their shipping but I am going to purchase their fragrance directly from their website from now on. Not only am I grateful for that but also because the fragrance is potent. It's REALLY strong with only two sprays. I might have to go only one spray next time. The fragrance starts off with a blast of apple and birchwood which, i believe, seems to convey war. Then it dries down to a blast of vanilla which conveys romance. To me, i didn't like the opening but the dry down is amazing. Anyways, did anyone else have the same experience?
UPDATE: So I wore this around my sister and she thought i smelled liked pee. She liked the VIW, though.

Trying to see beyond the flirty vibe that Aventus inherently has, this is indeed a great and very refined blend of highest quality.
Opens up fruity and uplifting - a mouth-watering, refreshing pineapple note and the smoke which quickly joins in giving it the unique Aventus signature.
As we advance to middle and base notes, we start to get more from the smoke and a woody, leathery dimension makes Aventus unmistakable masculine.

This composition is one of the best in the fragrance game and should get the praise for being one of the sexiest and most unique scents ever created.

A modern classic!

Not sure what aventus some people in the comments under me got but I get a very decent 7 to 8 hours performance from 4 sprays.and on my clothes I can smell it up to 4 days. The batch I'm currently using is 16c01 and after buying decants from most other 2016 batches I liked this one the most...good ballance between fruity and woody.i must say that some 2016 batches I tried were a little weaker than the 16c01 batch and I can understand that people get upset about the performance...for example 6 months ago I got myself 120ml 16a01 batch and it was kinda weak up to 5 hours Max performance.so I storred the bottle away for about 5 months...now its a pineapple bomb much richer stronger and better performing than when I got the bottle 6 months ago. And those saying that it's overpriced well yes it is if you pay 300$ to 400$ for 120ml...do some research and you can get it at half the price from legit retailers.and yes aventus in their first 4 years was a lott stronger bcos they had to remove ingredients like birch tar what makes the performance a lott better and adds smokiness...but once again with some research you can find splitters who add birch tar if you want it to smell more like old aventus...all these bs reviews saying it smells like cat piss and they only get 20 mins performance are really sad. Maybe some people expect to much and that's the problem idk...I enjoy aventus as much as I enjoy amouage jubilation man or reflection man...each his own opinion yet aventus is so famous there will be a lott of haters just like the most famous football teams have a lott of haters...best thing if you want to try something new is to search for samples or find a splitter who can sell you some and test for yourself and see if you think it performs good enough or smells good enough and don't really listen to the reviews to much bcos everyone's taste is not the same and the more famous the fragrance the more haters it has.

Nothing comes close to Aventus . Period!

I was out clubbing, and I sprayed only one wiff of Aventus on my neck, there comes this blonde beauty and says hey, that scent is familiar, I'm sure I'vesmelled it ssomewhere! Let me smell it... (stick with me guys)... She starts smelling my neck, I can feel her breathing, the music is loud, but I feel it, she seems not to get bored of it, seems like eternity ( hang on guys)...
We dance a bit, then start off to her flat, we arrive, she closes the door, and asks me to wait, dunno what she's up to, she comes back with her cat's litter box in her hand, she starts smelling the cat's urine in the bo, and comparing it to the Aventus on me, tells me now I know why this scent was so familiar.

As I said nothing comes close to Aventus:)

I have a couple of different '16 batches and they are missing the smoke and ambergris drydown, it's all fruity from start to finish. Performance is quite poor and is only noticeable for 3-4 hours. I'm very disappointed by Aventus. Don't believe the hype, try it for yourself!

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to smell this today at Holt Renfrew before the tester bottle ran out! It is definitely a unique frag and nothing like I own or have smelled anywhere. The bottle is beautiful and the associate said this is their most popular seller next to Green Irish Tweed.

Getting into the scent, it's very inviting. 1-2 sprays on the neck and you are set! It is unique no doubt about that. Here is the breakdown:

Top note: Bergamot, blackcurrant leaves, apple, pineapple

Middle note: Pinkberries, birch, patchouli, jasmine

Base note: Musk, oakmoss, ambergris, vanilla

I get a lot of bergamot, apple, a hint of birch, some patchouli, and lastly a very nice musk in the dry down.

Projection wise I'd say at least 8-10 hours (on my skin, which is quite good) and has decent silage. The one very thing that I cannot justify is the price! $$$$ way too much money for what you get. If they knotched the price down about half of what its worth, then I would pull the trigger. Otherwise, a great, unique smell that is definitely in a high end category and would sit next to other top fragrances like Tom Ford!

Edit: As people have mentioned about batch numbers I'm not too familiar as to which batch I sampled but from what I can smell right now, it has great staying power!

I love the scent. I have not smelled anyone wearing Creed Aventus and I live in Southern California. This is for sure the scent I will wear when I want to smell unique. Now, performance, I get about 2-3 hours of strong projection. After 4 hours it starts to sit closer to skin and will need someone to get really close to notice Aventus. Not going to lie, I did expect 6-8 hours of projection; however, I only got a 30 ml sample of Creed Aventus so it did not break my bank account. Will I get a full bottle? I will continue testing it. I love the scent, but I have to do some serious thinking whether to justify buying a full bottle or not. Overall score: 9/10

UPDATE:

After careful testing, I just can't justify spending $300 for a full 2.5 or 4oz bottle of Aventus. The reason being is performance. I love the smell; however, for the money that it is sold for, I expect it to last 6+ hours like Dior Sauvage. I will just enjoy my 30ml sample and use it for special occasions.

Guys, this is a HONEST REVIEW. I have a bottle of the 16 batch (16D01) and the performance is SHIT, like really?? It costs so much but i barly smell it. I did 4-6 sprays and few hours later nobody can smell the shit, and PLEASE Aventus lovers dont give me the " its the fatigue, u cant smell IT but others can" No no no, not even others can. I have dior sauvage Versace eros and stuff that like that and those i get complimented even after 7-8 hours. Just to be clear for all of you that want to buy this... DONT!!!! For the price? Naa, for the new batches ? Naaaa , the new batches seems to be missing a whole lot, where is the great combination with the pineapple and the birch, the vanilla and ambergris? Not here thought. I Will stick to My dior, go hate now haha

Hello guys,
heres the german guy again, sorry if I make mistakes in my text.
So, today after work I decided to go to the city, check out some christmas deals. Still have to buy about 5 presents for family members, lol.
However, I went to the perfumery and tried out some stuff for myself.
The lady at the perfumery introduced me to "Aventus" and I acted as if I didnt know the fragrance, lol. Already had aventus about 3-4 years ago, but didnt really care about it anymore after my bottle was empty.
That was about 3 hours ago and I can barely smell it now.
I dont get any whiffs from it. Can only smell it when I dig my nose into the back of my hand. She sprayed about 2 times.
It started very fruity and then developed into the well-known fruity-smokeyness. As I know it.
But the performance?
I dont know wich batch it was or from what year the bottle was.
All I know is, she was spraying from a genuine Aventus bottle and the performance is just horrible.
I have some 10€ fragrances in my Collection (Cuba for example) wich perform better than this.
Can someone confirm?
I would assume the bottle was from 2015 or 2016. Dont think an Aventus tester will last longer than this.

if you look back at my former review i have praised this fragrance very highly but i have to admit this doesn't smell the way it did before. i have wasted over 500 dollars this year because i kept buying and selling different batches. all the 2015 and 2016 batches i have tried are not on par with the old batches.the smell seems softer and more artificial. its also missing something but i cant quiet figure out what. i have some 2012 samples that i absolutely love. honestly this bad experience will deter me to buy another creed fragrance. from now on im only going to pick up decant samples. not bottle worthy anymore sorry.Nevertheless i still contend that 2013 or earlier bottles is still the greatest fragrance ever created. if you find older bottles do not hesitate to purchase.

Review for Batch: 16ao1
I smelt this fragrance 3 years ago and it was great! Full bodied, long lasting and you could really smell the quality especially in the drydown. Fast forward to today and I'm not sure how many times this has been reformulated but it's a ghost of its former self. Gone is the oomph it once possessed. It's like half the notes have been removed from the fragrance all together. Apple? Cya! Black currant? On ya bike! The nice trademark ambergris drydown? Back to the ocean!

Now In the opening there's a good dose of pineapple but it's fairly synthetic and depending on temperature doesn't stick around long. Dries down in under an hour and all your left with is a woody/green skin scent with a musky base. That's it! There may be the feintest of vanillas but like I said it pales in comparison to the original stuff. To me I smell a cypress note now thrown in there as well. Performance is crap and I'm not paying half a weeks worth of pay to let a fragrance macerate for 4-6 months so it can decide to improve in scent and longevity.

Now I know why people are hyping all these clones because the Aventus of today is dead! .

UPDATE: Managed to score a 2014 bottle, batch:14DO1. Performance and overall smell is a lot better than the last batch I tried which was H11, which in my opinion has dodgy performance and overall scent isn't the greatest, sits close to the skin after an hour. I don't mind the whole batch variations in terms of the scent but it's certainely worth doing some homework on them as performance varies and that to me is the most frustrating part!

I truly do not get the hype. I've tested this for over a year in different temperatures and settings, I've taken it to work to get unbiased opinions and it just fails. I love the first 5 minutes of Aventus but then after that it's just boring..... all that's left is a twiggy, woody smell reminiscent of Philosikos, no sweetness, no vanilla, no smokiness....all I'm left with is a sad, stomach aching, dry woody smell. To my nose, this is actually offensive and totally not worth the price.

It's just not working on me. Longevity is poor. I can't really smell it unless i've got my nose on my wrist/hand. Lovely scent but thought it would be better on me. Completely disappears after a few hours. £185. Totally underwhelmed.

Most of Creed fragrances have enormous sillage in opening and long lasting skin-scent for the rest.It's great scent and perfect date fragrance. i highly recommend it but notice that there are lots of similar fragrances like this so maybe it's not satisfying as before...

I have a chance to try creed aventus from my friends. Started with just one spray the smells is actually amazing. i got pineapple notes with some fresh scent. The smell is sharp and it stay even after one to two hour.

The drydown smell smokey with a little bit woody but elegance, suit for its price.

P.S
If you got the money, worth to buy for collection and also for occasion wear.

teslax62, I dunno who pays you money to say shitty things about aventus.
I got a sample yesterday from my fathers bottle which he bought from fragranceNet.com recently and it smells amazing. I sprayed 2 sprays 3 hours ago and just few mins ago one of my colleagues who sits 10 feet away from me smelled something so nice the moment she entered the office. she was begging to know who wears this perfume. I told her that it's me and she kept sniffing me and asked me what this is. She actually wants to order a bottle for her husband now.
I am telling you this is a gem. I dunno who pays you to say bad things about aventus. I have a collection of about 20 perfumes and this is the first time I drive someone crazy this much. thanks to aventus

@Germany - Thank you, that's nice of you to say.

@teslax62 - The UK Trustpilot score for FragranceNET is 1 star out of 5, with many people commenting that the fragrances seem to be diluted. I'm not trying to dis you man, but you could be missing out on the best fragrance experience. If I'm going to spend nearly £200 on a fragrance then I'll only buy it from an authorised seller. Yes, it might be full price but at least I know what I'm getting. Having said that, I can see that the Creed Boutique in the US sells a 75ml bottle of Aventus for $350, whereas a 75ml bottle in the UK costs £185 ($230), that's some difference!

Boy, does this fragrance create debate. I've been using a 2013 batch bottle of Aventus which I've enjoyed very much. In fact, it's everything you could ask for in a fragrance; it smells amazing, has great depth, longevity and silage, it's incredibly versatile and gets more compliments than any other fragrance I own - what more could you want? As I'm nearly at the end of my bottle I thought about buying another but I've been put off by the number of reviews slating newer bottles' scent and performance so I did some research.

I phoned Creed UK and expressed my concerns about batch variations and performance. This is what the very helpful lady told me - due to the high number of natural ingredients used there will always be small variations between batches, just as there is in champagne, however, she assured me that it hasn't been reformulated. She said this had come directly from Oliver Creed who had called into the UK office earlier in the year. She also said that Aventus is Creed's most popular fragrance so why would they change it! I guess if there have been any changes to the formulation they have only been made to meet changes in EU law, such as the prohibited use of oakmoss in fragrances.

So, I finally decided to bite the bullet and get a brand new bottle and here are my thoughts; it's obviously similar to my 2013 bottle but there are noticeable differences. For example, there is a difference when smelt up very close to the skin. My new bottle has a sweeter smell with less smokiness and it does smell more synthetic, although the difference in smell is less noticeable when smelt from the projection and silage. Longevity is reasonably good but projection and silage have noticeably diminished. Has it been reformulated? Almost definitely, despite the advice from the woman at Creed, if only to meet regulatory requirements. If I were to score them in comparison, giving my original 2013 batch a 10, I would give the 2016 batch 7.

As a result of these changes, the sharp increase in price and now the smaller bottles, I've been looking for a quality, i.e. not cheap synthetic clone, niche alternative to Aventus. I have tried several; The Orchid Man, Venetian Blue, Morning Chess, but none have the depth or roundedness of Aventus so I'll keep looking.

Aventus used to be, in my opinion, the King of men's fragrance. Unfortunately, I can't say that anymore and unless the situation changes, I can't see myself buying another bottle once my current one runs out. I still love the smell and perhaps I would feel differently if I had never had the 2013 batch but I can't help lament the loss of fragrance and performance, especially at this price point.

There is so much hype about this fragrance. If the hype didn't exist it will be deemed fit for a gentleman in his late 40's. for a perfume with a hint of bergamot and a classical fouger.

There is no pineapple in this and perhaps people haven't tasted pineapple (who consider this to have a pineapple note as its main code).

Sillage is arms length and longevity is meh.

I love it ! I almost bought it for myself a few years back but I found it just a bit too masculine on me. And I was too cheap to buy it for my husband who wouldn't fully appreciate it , it's just not important to him.
Starts off with a great pineapple note. Really fresh and sweet but very natural to my nose. Just great quality unmistakenly nothing like a drugstore product or a department store mainstream cologne. It's highly layered and complex and you can't just judge it after wearing it for a few minutes. It shifts from a almost pineapple candy aroma to a aquatic fruity and settles to a woodsy leathery ( birch ) scent , still always with some sexy sweetness. Definitely nice on a woman also. But again I find it a little too masculine for myself.
It's more along the lines of diptique and Aqua di Pharma , aromatic and natural in a way ,,, rather than a department store mainstream. I remember it had good longevity I don't understand the people that say it doesn't . For this price it would have to.
I have to reapply most of my scents halfway through the day ,,, what's wrong with that ?

Looks like fragrantica doesn't like Creed all in all. Not sure why that is. Price most likely. In addition I agree the people that think it's like a drugstore quality obviously got a fake.
However having said that the like bar is still going strong here.
I may be purchasing Aventus for her !

Ok I have a mixed review.
I love the fragrance even do I think it is too expensive.
I love the pineapple in the opening, and the way it projects in the first hour.
I have L'aventure by Al Haramain and it almost smells the same after dry down but it does not have the same projection but it is a cheap alternative and you need to wear both to distinguish both.
Now fragrance does not last long on me,except Invictus and Terre d'Hermes, and Aventus projects well for one hour and than fades to skin. At least to my nose because my wife feels it all day,specially on clothes.
I believe it lasts long but not those 9/10 hours or plus, at least on me.
When I bought it I expected something overwhelming because of the hype and was disappointed but scent grew on me and I absolutely love this smokey pineapple scent,mix between sweet and woody smokey.
Here it is cold and I will keep it for hotter days where I will be sure sillage will increase drastically.

I got the 2012 batch and it dies after 15 minutes ...and then I order samples from beauty spin, scent split , aventus vials to see if they are any better , they all the same ..and they all perform poorly .I can not smell anything different between batches .
And sorry I don't believe this ," I got 400 compliments in a week " BS . I think Creed pays these people off .
Also, don't believe this olfactory fatigue . I got a couple super strong scent and I can smell them strong for 10-12 hours , used 40-50 different fragrances and I could smell all of them constantly . Only fragrances that had the same longevity as Aventus were Eau de colognes

I went to visit my family when I saw that my dad bought a bottle of this. I sprayed on my wrist and on my tshirt and honestly I wasn't very impressed in the beginning. Time passed and I was getting whiffs from my wrist and tshirt. OMG THIS WAS VERY DELICIOUS AND INTOXICATING. I kept sniffing myself and I could not resist doing that for the next 10 hours. I slept and woke up and still my wrist was smelling so beautiful. I went back home and it's now my 4th day and I still can smell it on my tshirt and I am not going to wash it because I want to keep smelling this stuff. Guys this is amazing. I am gonna save money and sell some of my other cologne bottles to buy this. Unbelievable

A few days ago, I got a version of this fragrance for $2--a little roll-on 6 ml. sample vial. The fragrance is superb (I can get the cigarette butts smell they say it has, but I don't mind)...it's really fruity, leathery, and smoky; nonetheless, it vanishes in no time, and if the real thing performs as badly as they say, then it's not worth the price tag whatsoever and, therefore, I'd rather get the version I mentioned above.

Again, Creed Aventus smells delicious, but it's a perfume I can live without.

So I have finally got my 120 ml vial of aventus. And I am starting to understand this fuss about batches. I am experiencing something different than majority. I was expecting beast (longevity, silage, projection), but I am dissapointed. I tried it today, and projection was poor, even in a moment when I applied it. Longevity +-2 hrs and after that it is gone. I also own Milessime Imperial, which is acording to some people poor in terms of longevity and projection. And even MI performs better than Aventus. I am not sure what is the problem. I still like the smell and uniqueness of aventus, but the overall performance is just bad. I will use it next days, and maybe it will be different.

¿you do not like current formulations of aventus? ¿do you want something like the old batches? then you should try the perfume parlour version it costs 5 pounds for 10ml of oil, so with 20 ml you can make an 100 ml Eau de Parfum, Stronger than the original and closer to the first batches.

Ah, Aventus… Not even Creed's laughably inflated prices could stop you from becoming a bestseller, even beyond the usual demographic of niche aficionados. For years, Creed fans used to look down on the peasants wearing Cool Water (considered a dumbed-down version of their beloved Green Irish Tweed). Now they've been somewhat undercut, as Johnny Cargopants and his fratbro entourage have forsaken their Davidoff and started touring the clubs with a cloud of Aventus trailing behind them.
Since there's not much I could add to describe the fragrance itself, I feel I should instead answer some of the more pressing questions I've come across on the BN Aventus subforums.

1. Yes, Aventus is a chick magnet. You'll be the center of attention at any bar or club. Nevermind the two dozen other dudes around you who are also doused in pineapple. They're probably wearing that self-made knockoff recipe of Club de Nuit Intense and apple soda you saw on Youtube (which you obviously didn't try). You'll be way cooler, wearing the real thing and sipping on the Snapple juicebox you brought from home.

2. There's plenty of websites that sell Aventus at a discount (look for those which have authentic Ray-Bans at 90% off). But the cheapest way to get it is the so-called "unlimited pre-evening trial". How it works: Hit your favourite Sephora 5 minutes before closing time, and tell them you wanna “try” Aventus. If you’re afraid the saleslady is onto you (because she sees you coming in every Friday evening before you hit the clubs), try buttoning your shirt and tucking in your chest hair.

3. On the subject of dosage: If you still blow below the legal limit after dousing your body in pineapple-scented alcohol, you haven’t sprayed enough. Go back in and tell the saleslady you accidentally sprayed the wrong tester. Have your friend Johnny stand next to you, so she’ll think the miasma of tropical fruit is emanating from his slightly damp cargo pants.

4. Yes, Aventus is indeed the most original fragrance to come along in years. Every other fruity, smoky or woody fragrance thereafter has obviously been inspired by it, so make sure to mention that in your reviews of those fragrances. It even applies to older scents of those types, because Aventus has clearly outclassed them. For extra points, bring that up when discussing a classic that’s known to have its own rabidly devoted fanbase (try Guerlain’s Mitsouko).

5. A true Aventus man knows his batch codes, and can recommend the right batch for any occasion. Hot date at your favourite club? Try one of the smokier batches from way back (2011). Fun day at the mall with your bros, shopping for new cargo pants? One of the fruitier batches will put you in the right mood. When in doubt, consult the experts who stash vintage bottles and regularly compare them to current batches. Rumour has it that the juice people spit into buckets at Aventus tastings is used as the base for Dior’s Sauvage.

Aventus is love. Aventus is life. Long live Aventus.

Aventus distances itself from the gaudy aquatics Creed offered during the 90's. This time I can say they did it right. A fresh aromatic fougere with some citrus fruity top notes, a floral dry heart and a masculine laid back drydown.
The top notes are needlessly flashy and made me worry for another master course in vulgarism. However, the drydown is a completely different story. It performs an against all odds, surprisingly well balanced and convincing throwback dive in the sea of forgotten elegant virility. It wears casually and dignified and is redolent of the more low-key, suave compositions that you wear when you don't feel like perfume but still want something more than a deodorant or a fragrance that smells like one. It feels somehow conservative and oldschool but manages to deliver. What it delivers? The simple thing to smell good beyond the call of duty.
Aventus doesn't break any rules. It could have been better, much better and it is sad that Creed, as always, avoids the grand manner in its compositions. Pretty good though.

thats i think says it all how much i like this scent. i have around 50 bottles and sample a lot but Aventus is really my go to scent and it suits me perfectly.
i love the fresh fruity opening with the nice undertone of smoke it makes it oh so manly. i feel confident when i wear it !
it lasts 12hours on me and get a good projection ..

def. a killer release from the house of Creed !

Try it, if you like it then you will really like it..haters will always be haters, they can't stop Aventus from being a pretty good scent.

I think this scent is for an older man. I am only 35 and i do like it, i feel its not quite for me. It is very bold and invigorating. Definitely masculine in every category. There is a lot going on in this complex scent. I do not think this is something new unfortunately. I remember this scent back in the early 80's on my stepdad. I know i wasn't Aventus, but it was something very similar. Anyone have any ideas of 80's mens colognes that are very similar in smell?

I really wanted to like it. After seeing all the youtube people raving about how great it was, I decided to order some samples. Once I got them, I was outrageously excited, then, I put it on. I knew immediately that I didn't like it, but, I thought "Give it time, you might like the dry-down." Well, there really is no difference between the opening scent and the closing. It really doesn't develop and it stays the same throughout. It lasts around 8 hours and has pretty good projection. I ended up giving away my samples once I came to the realization that if I really wanted to smell like Aventus, I could just throw pineapple skins into a pile of burning leaves and stand in the path of the smoke.

I totally agree with those guys who say that the new 16 batches sucks. I got a 16D01 and the performance is not even average on my skin.. i have to pump it up with like 6-7 spray to at least get 3h of longevity.

And the projection is really close on my skin same as the sillage.

Ive always loved this one but when you have a GOOD BATCH, otherwise don't waste your money. There is no depth, the complexity is gone, you only smell a faint of fruits and it doesn't develop more then that. My clones such as rasasi pour lui or my l'adventure smells exactly the same and performs even better. I get almost everytime complimented with those.

dear friend, that's what I'm trying to say, my 2013 batch was heavenly, great balance between fruity & smokey notes, moreover, 2 sprays was good enough, lasted long, projected well, got many compliments a day, 2016 batch is superficial, fruity, no smokiness, no depth, the whole thing lasts max 20 minutes, doesn't even radiate well, I'm not angry about the money I threw outta the window, I'm depressed about losing such a masterpiece, and mad about a company who can't stay loyal to its loyal costumers... Icing on top of it is people accusing you of olphactory fatigue, alzheimer, dementia, aging, and psychosis :)

To me it just smells like smokey lemon water that can cost of upwards of $400+ . It smells good but doesnt last that long which is why we keep spraying and over spraying . Mancera cedrat boise is far better in my opinion and it always consistent instead of all this batch number nonsense that creed has gotten themselves into . If they can't keep consistency up then its not a quality juice that doesn't deserve to have the exorbitant price tag accompanying it . Just get mancera cedrat boise and stop buying Aventus.

I actually remember trying this out a few years back but then forgot about it so I figured I would give it another shot. I received a 5ml decant from Ebay for about $15, and I have to say I'm not at all impressed. The fruity-pineapple opening, which I think is what really sells this fragrance, lasts for about 10 seconds then immediately is overwhelmed with a smoky, but soft, leather. There really isn't anything all that great about this scent. Don't get me wrong, it does indeed smell nice, but for $300 or $400 or however much this stuff costs for a very light pineapple accord and some smoky leather, it's just not worth it to me. There are tons of designer scents and niche scents out there that have much more complexity than this.

The whole 3 years that ive owned this never got any compliments from any women . Today I wore it again layered with a car freshener spray called Autoglym hyper fresh Tropical Mist and I get compliments from women asking me what im wearing because it smells so damn amazing is what they said lol . They even asked me to show them a photo of the bottle because I told them it was creed aventus. Little do they know I layered it with a $15 auto car freshener lol .

Smells nice. I'm terrible at picking up isolated notes when they are well blended, so I won't go saying "Oh, the pineapple is so natural!" or "That birch is so smoky!".
It just smells... nice. Not much more I can say about it.

It faintly reminds me of Dior Sauvage. Still like this one better though and I'd actually buy it, weren't it so over-overpriced.

Performance is kinda sucky, too.

I sampled this in-store and have to say I don't understand why this is so highly rated. It reminds me of the musty smell you get when you go inside an old church that has rotting timber. Not attractive at all.

one of the most pleasant scents I've ever experience. I think it's a very safe bind buy and most people would enjoy it if not love it. Does it worth the price tag? I'm not really sure. If you have a lot of money to blow why not. But definitely worth having a decant on hand.

It's probably already been reformulated. Due to the Oakmoss regulations . I purchased mine end of 2012 . Longevity is around 5 hours if I'm lucky but that's with heavy sprays on skin and clothes.

Aventus shines in the drydown. Dont expect to spray it on you and immidiately get compliments. And why this need for compliments anyway? Aventus shines and i mean SHINES once it settles down. Give it 45min to an hour and enjoy this masterpiece.And thats when the compliments kick in.I personally cant stop sniffing my hand everytime i wear Aventus. It was love at first...drydown!!

Creed Aventus is Olivier and Erwin Creed's modern day masterpiece. It took me quite a while to get this due to the high prices and the insane hype, but I eventually found a way to get a bottle of it.

Scent: 10/10
I have a 2015 batch. The top is a burst of fruit. On my skin, it is mostly pineapple and apple. It then quickly becomes a smoky pineapple, which is what I get for the heart. This stays until the drydown, with the ambergris giving it that trademark Creed feel. It just smells so classy the whole time.

Performance: 10/10
I get around 12+ hours of longevity with this, but it may differ from person to person as I usually am lucky with getting great performance with Creeds. Projection is huge in the first 4 hours, as I have filled up rooms in some of my wearings. That is with just 2 sprays, by the way. Sillage is also fantastic, as I leave a good and noticeable scent trail.

Compliments: 10/10
This is one of my most complimented fragrances, alongside Bleu de Chanel. Other people say I smell fantastic, and it really does surprise me as I get compliments long after I think the fragrance has already died off. It disappears and comes back, apparently.

Price: 4/10
Being a Creed, it is already given that it will be expensive. Added that with the huge hype in recent years, and the price has surely spiked up and continue to do so until the hype dies down. As much as I love the fragrance, buying it retail is close to unreasonable for me unless I really have no other choice. I make do with reputable sellers, whether online or grey market.

Overall: 10/10
Creed Aventus is dubbed as the king of niche fragrances, and perhaps even of all fragrances. I can say that such a claim is very much believable due to its great combination of scent, performance, and compliment factor. This is undoubtedly one of my all-time favourite fragrances.

by the far the greatest compliment getter I have ever worn.
both men and women love it.
lasts a while.
expensive...but worth it.
if you can afford it...it's the best
i personally never met ANYONE who doesn't love it.
women drool around this one.
men come and ask me what it is so they can buy it too...
can't go wrong.
also i have tried some of the cheaper knock offs...don't waste your money. nothing beats the original

I've reviewed this fragrance before and I would like to say be careful with the fragrance Community. They over-hyped fragrances also there is many mixed reviews on fragrances. I owned this bottle. One thing I can tell you is this is a fragrance for men not women its way to Woody and you will never get a compliment from a woman. These guys hyping they get all these compliments from women are absolutely lying through their teeth. The reasons I'm adding this is because my review is way too far down on this page guys be careful it's a good fragrance don't get me wrong but it's not a summer scent and it's not going to get to those compliments that are promised

I think I must have a very super sensative olfactory system..I find this sent obtrusive,cloying and never ending..i find it not going well if you work w/others closely. So Id say for me it is NOT a work scent. It enters a room before its wearer does.......not what i want to be known for.......nor should I impose it on others close to me at work.

This is a very good fragrance but its not at all worth they hype. For the cost it doesn't even compare to great designer fragrances. It will get you compliments but so will Aqua De Geo. I actually got bored of this scent and ended up selling my bottle on ebay. This is a fragrance that GUYS love more than the ladies in my experience. There are way better alternatives that smell better and are less expensive, but by all means if you love this stuff get it. But remember more expensive doesn't always mean better.

Aventus is a 10 out of 10 fragrance for me. It smells great, a smoky pineapple. It's not like many other Creeds. Also a huge compliment getter and smells like a gentleman. On my skin, performance is great, well over 12 hours, and projection is very good in the first few hours. It will leave a trail that has people asking what you are wearing! A true hall of famer, masterpiece. 10/10.

I was lucky enough to receive a bottle of this recently. I am a fan, but hardly a fanboy.

It's a fantastic. Everyone likes it, my wife comments when I get home from work how nice I smell - I don't work as a fisherman btw... So it's not THAT good ;)

I rarely go into the minutiae of the parts that make up the whole, and feel in some cases the whole is certainly more than the sum of its constituent parts. This is one of the rare ones.

I can't go into batch number levels of purity like many of my more enlightened brothers (or sisters) here, but what I can say is that this is one of the best fragrances I've ever worn. And by quite a long distance. It's fresh without smelling post shower talcy. It's classy with being old fashioned. New enough without being passé. They got the balance spot on.

One downside to any potential buyers... it's expensive, properly expensive. But you must pay the piper that calls the best tunes :)

Bravo Creed, you're the best, and by God you know it.....!

Creed Aventus is amazing juice ! The pineapple and smoky birch combination is fantastic. I get 12 plus hours longevity and projection is great. This is suitable for day or night. I love wearing this especially dressed up. It exudes power and confidence. This is my personal favorite. Don't worry about the batch variations. They are all great.

Oh aventus, like the court jester you seem to be, always in the courts of kings and queens but mocking them all the same as they thing you are rather amusing them.

This perfume is the most chameleon perfume I own. For those of you that say this perfume lasts two hours, some of you are right, then those who say you're crazy, this thing is a BEASt and lasts for days - those of you are correct also!

this perfume is tempermental. There are days when it's 80 farenheight here in boston and the scents will evaporate, then there are days where it is cool and a beautiful 72 degrees and it will last for days on my work shirt.

Sometimes the 90F heat will indeed boom it and make it last, some days it will make it dissapear entirely! Strange concotion, this creed aventus is.

one thing is for sure though, it smells FOOKING amazing and thats all I really care about.

10/10 a mischievous and masterful creation by the house of CREED!

But Sad :( The other, more amusing group is the one defending it by citing longevity of PREVIOUS batches, old decants, and fragrantica ratings... remember... This is not a mainstream scent, people complaining about change in longevity are mostly using this scent for at least 3-4 years! get over it, the company has gone the wrong path, I'm getting outta this expensive sinking ship. If anyone wants to be the naked king in the imaginary expensive clothes, be my guest :)

Great review, Aventus is indeed very unique!! Now the issue with longevity shocks me, I buy my husband' bottles from France, I order online...his last bottle I got 5 months ago, I did once buy a used one from a member here...the smell doesn't change, nor is it less smokey or more smokey,,they all smell alike...
Now, the smell stays for days , I worked in perfumes and I can say Aventus has a fantastic longevity !!
Now might be you don't smell it yourself, like my husband says he can hardly smell it!! And lots of people tell him his perfume smells beautiful and strong..
Interesting .

I think everything has being already said about this now "legendary" fragrance, but anyway i'm gonna give my 2 cents because that's why we are here right?.

The scent is amazing, and is one of the few fragrances that you get right away what the notes are: pineapple smoked out.
Like someone started a fire and put pineapples in it, that's the smell you get from Aventus. It is warm, delicious and masculine, and the best part is that no other fragrance (at least the ones i've tried) smells remotely like it. So you are guaranteed to smell unique.

On the other hand, the performance on this one is awful. I don't know if it's me or what, but after 30 minutes it became a skin scent and had to reaply. I've never being against Creeds being expensive, because this is a luxury brand whe are talking about, like would you complain about the price of a rolls royce or a Ferrari? no, because you know what kind of brand you are dealing with, however I would not pay a Creed price if I have to reapply every 2 hours; I'll be broke in no time.

If you are gonna charge 200+ dollars for a fragrance, at least make it really strong so yo get your money's worth. A really great and unique fragrance is not worth it if the performance sucks.

Would you buy a Porche if every 10 miles you had to change tires? no?..........that's why I thought.

FP4215U01 batch.. last on my skin for 10-14hrs and projects very very strong for the first 6hrs......

I enjoy the scent untill the next morning!
{3-4 sprays all is nedded}

{But the quality has slightly changed in the formula}
{I smell a generic vibe in it?}..

Performance has nothing to do with the quality of ingrendients IMHO..
{Perfect example Montales frags...}

To all die-hard fans who defend Aventus with claws & teeth, I know how you guys feel, I myself adore (the old) Aventus composition, been using it for 3 years continuosly, own many other perfumes, got no olphactory fatigue, haven't endured any brain injury, still got the 2013 bottle as well, always buy from certified shop. I'm sure of one thing, they changed something in 2016's composition, and to be honest, it's become SHIT, the scent, the sillage, the longevity, the utter lack of compliments, what else is left of the perfume? The name? :) :) I know many of us look at niche perfumery as an art, as a passion, not caring about the higher price, but creed seem to have made the leap here, either they can't produce consistent results, or they're under pressure from some EU ban, or they just wanna make more money while spending less on ingredients, either you guys are still using an older batch, or you're just in denial, I myself don't wanna believe this is real, & am praying this is just a bad batch, we seem to take the extremely good formulations for granted, like a masterwork painting, or a work of art, but it's about money here, anyway, not gonna complain about the performance anymore, sooner or later you're gonna experience the same. End of story.

Na ez kezd már vicces lenni, hogy már itt külön lélegzetvételi technikát is ajánlanak, hogy érezni lehessen az Aventust 5-6 óra eltelte után:-), mindezt közel 70 ezer Ft-ért. Nekem is van, az illat kellemes de azért ne magyarázzunk bele csodákat! Ez a batch elemezgetés nevetséges és értelmetlen. Mégegyszer mondom, hogy nekem is van, tetszik, de valóban 1-2 óra után már csak nagyon nehezen érezni. Áldozata vagyunk a marketingnek, meg ennek az illatnak. Ennyi.

For all of you that get bad longevity out of this, let's stop claiming it's terrible and not worth the money. Everyone has different skin chemistry and Aventus will not last 14 hours on everybody. If it doesn't work for you, oh well.
Just because something like L'Eau D'Issey doesn't last long on my skin doesn't mean I'm going to post that it's terrible and has bad longevity. Stop flaming this because you're mad that your skin doesn't agree with it.

A régi batchekhez nem volt szerencsém, de ahogy olvasgatom valóban ezekben már nem sok füstösség van. És valóban meglepő egy-egy batch között mekkora eltérések lehetnek.
Viszont most tartottam pár nap szünetet Aventus használatban és most hogy újra fújtam, megint élvezhetem hosszan tart friss gyümölcsös illatát! Még a nap végén is egy melós nap után. Amúgy még egy tipp az "olfactory fatigue" kiküszöbölésére: fújj a kézfejedre vagy csukódra és 5-6 óra múlva mikor már úgy gondolod nem érzed szippants bele a bőrödbe ahová fújtad. Fújd ki a levegőt ott tartva az orrod, várj 10 másodpercet levegővétel nélkül, majd szippants bele. Meg fogsz lepődni. :)

Well done Oliver Creed. Majestic and mysterious. And fruity. Pretty interesting cologne I happened upon. It took me a couple minutes to figure out what I smelling. I didn't have a list of ingredients at the time, so it was indeed a puzzle. The fruits showed themselves immediately, and the birch and Ambergris followed suit. There is a small floral note as well.


Although well done, there was no explosion of enlightenment for me. Yes it's nice, but it's definitely not the most extravagant scent I've ever smelled. And might I add, it's not a traditionally smelling Creed aroma! Not all creed scents smell the same, but they have the same family structure. You can tell a Creed scent when you smell it. But THIS one breaks that air of sameness. It's unique, even for a Creed.

Longevity is poor, but where I live it's extremely hot, currently. Hopefully that's just a weather problem. Sillage is average. Doesn't project much after about 2 hours. All in all, interesting.

Overall rating: 7/10

Creed Aventus smells wondrous, better than any of the thirty or fourty colognes I currently have. I remember the first time I smelled Aventus. A colleague was wearing it in a meeting. It's soft woodsy oder permeated the room, helping subdue the normally confrontational and caustic emotions that ran rampant at that corporation. In a subsequent meeting, recognizing the scent again, I purposely sat next to this individual just to enjoy the aromatherapy. Months later, when he was wearing it again, I screwed up my courage and asked him what it was. That was back in 2012. At the time, I experienced sticker shock when I checked it out at Nieman Marcus and promptly forgot about it.

Fast forward to 2016 and my cologne journey has taken me through Hermes to Cartier to Tom Ford. My tastes normally run to winter scents, but this year I wanted a summer cologn. Browsing Nieman's, I inquired about popular summer scents and the clerk steered me to Aventus. I tried one squirt on my neck, walked out to test its on-skin performance and smelled nothing. Two weeks later, asking for a summer scent again, another clerk said I had to try Aventus. I complained I had already and couldn't smell it. She was shocked, nearly grabbed my arm, and put two generous sprays on. The rest of the day, I had a deja vu sensation until I remembered the scent from years earlier. I checked my archived email, and found it was what my friend had worn long before.

So I went back the next day, bought a 120 ml bottle, took it home, sprayed it on, and smelled practically nothing. The next day I checked against the store sample. That lasted all day while mine was gone in a few hours. I felt gypped, experiencing buyer's remorse. Then I did my research and found out about lot variations. I had purchased 15X01. I read about 15Y11 being much better and swapped my bottle. 15Y11 is much longer lasting than 15X01, and 15Y11 has a sharper edge that I like. It's not as room filling as what my friend wore in 2012, however. I've since sampled 15Y01 which is smokier than the more pinappley 15Y11. I like more smoke. 15Y11 lasts about 5 hours vs 15Y01 at 8 and 15X01 at 2. I like 8 hours. 15Y11 has more sillage than 15Y01. I like more sillage.

And that's my problem with this expensive scent, my first foray into this price range. Aventus is finicky; it varies with the temperature, humidity and even the shower gel I used that day. Sometimes three sprays does it, sometimes six. At six, it's very expensive to wear. And how am I to know how much to put on in any given day?

I love 15Y11. I think I love 15Y01 better. I probably won't buy Aventus again because I don't like the variability for the price; I'm not sophisticated enough to want my colognes to be like single barrel whiskeys, not at this price range. I wish I had purchased it in 2012. Tom Ford's Black Orchid, a completely different beast/scent, performs better for half the price; one squirt lasts all day.

@koskhandeh
Én is most vettem Neroliban, enyém a 16D01 Batch számú lett. Én mindig az első viselést tartom mérvadónak, akkor az első órákban nagyon intenzív friss gyümölcsös illat lengedezett körülöttem, majd 12 óra után, miután aludni mentem és éjszaka közepén felébredtem, még akkor is lehetett érezni, majd reggel a csuklómat szagolgatva még mindig jelen volt az illat. Majd jött a meglepetés, mikor ezután elkezdtem használni, 10 perc után már nem éreztem semmit, csak ha nagyon közelről szagolgattam az applikálás helyét. Úgyhogy én szerintem ez csak az orrunk, illetve agyunk furcsa játéka, hogy gyengének érezzük az illatot. Én kérdezgettem másokat, 5-6 óra multán, hogy éreznek e valamit és határozottan állították, hogy igen. De ha végső tesztet akarsz végezni, próbáld ki hogy 1 hétig nem használod az illatot, majd kérj meg valakit hogy fújjon magára 2-3at, találkozz vele 2-3 óra múlva és meglátod hogy érződik e vagy sem. :)
Ja és üdv a magyar Aventust szeretőknek. :)

Got the 2016 batch today (LT4216E01) , and I must say I totally agree with Valantis' comment below... unfortunately, the openning is different than the one from 2013,it's less smokey, bit more pineapple, fruity, & comparing them side by side, a bit more shallow, or should I say synthetic, lacking the depth, not complex :( dunno what is it, the musc? The oak moss? Synthetic? It's sure got to do with the base notes, the depth!

Edit.
the longevity & sillage are not the same anymore... Seems my fears were warranted, the EU ingredient ban is destroying niche fragrance industry, making them synthetic, with bad performance :(
I think if this goes on, the huge price difference between Aventus & clones doesn't worth it.

Edit #2.
Longevity is about 1 hour on my skin, previously it was 6 hours, sillage is half the previous batches, as a result, people very rarely compliment, before any of you come up with crazy time-wasting assumptions, let me say in advance that I've been using this for 3 years now, & I got it from a certified creed shop... unbelievable, ordered the 120 ml bottle for nothing :( please check batch before buying, not a safe buy anymore

Some mixed reviews. When I first got my sample it didn't wow me like a Tom Ford Private Blend, but then later I find that it's not very versatile. Aventus is subtle and refined. After a short while I began to realize how enjoyable it is.

This is a great fragrance. I have been sampling Creed Spice and Wood recently, which is similar, crisp clean birchwood, perfect spices, but compared to Aventus, a bit borring. No need to have both, I chose a small bottle of Aventus.
Aventus is crisp, clean, and refined, a modern day masterpiece of perfumery. It has a great balance of notes.

What is so great about it ? It is primarily a woody fragrance. I enjoy the crisp, clean, dry, slightly bitter birchwood. Hints of rose, jasmine, and vanilla make an accord with the birchwood, mezmirizing. The patchouli is hardly noticable, but the slightest hint, does it's part, in adding a hint of that dirty, woody patchouli.
Great fruity notes, mostly in the opening, but stay throughout, beautifully balance the sharp, smoky birchwood.

The great, natural fruity notes of pineapple, green apple, black current, and bergamot are not to sweet and don't dominate the fragrance or make it just a young guys fragrance.

It has the exceptional, clean, distinct, quality notes I find in all Creeds I have tried.
The projection is softly moderate, but it has some sticking power. I went swimming, sauna, then a hot shower, and I could still smell Aventus on my arm.

This is a review of the new batch I believe. I look forward to trying a more smoky batch, with less pineapple, pre 2015 I guess.

@elmalover definitely this batch has nothing to do with Aventus. It's obviously Armaf CDNIM and it's a big shame for creed, it's just unbelievable.....

Has anyone smelled this batch variation C4216D01 because mine smells exactly the same like Armaf CDNIM. The opening is the same harsh synthetic lemon and smell like Aventus after 3-4 hrs.. Just like the Armaf...

again,
Ive been wearing Aventus for so long now! I tried and tested properly and carefully all 2014 batchs and many of the 2015, after all i can say that the 15y11 is the best in the market now! its the only one that reminds me of the 11Z01 and 13Z01.
Dont waste your money and time. U want the best aventus? get the Y11. spray it on any of your clothes, put your cloth in your wardrobe and smell it the next day and you will understand the whole story! DONT JUDGE AVENTUS THE FIRST 10-20 MINUTES. Cheers all.

Compliments every day. Every frickin day. I was travelling in Dusseldorf, Germany and was on the hunt to try creed aventus after seeing the critical acclaim on here and base notes. I remember the first sniff, it was incredible. I bought it instantly, took it back to the hotel spent the rest of the night sniffing my arm. To this day it is the most complimented fragrance I own. It's my womans favourite fragrance in the collection by far and she's not even a fan of fruity mens fragrances. Work colleagues have said they know when I've been walking around because they can smell the scent trail. This has the best projection and longevity I've experienced, I never go more than 3 sprays or else I choke myself. After wearing this for over a year I have started to pick up the musk note more every time I wear it. It's just a little too much and can be off putting for me. Price is not an issue if you get splits and with the performance it will last 10 times longer than that $40 toilet cleaner fragrance you're spraying on right now. Buy it......now!

Got my nose on the first for the first time on holiday in Italy! And to be completely honest, it did not blow me away..

The scent is quite linear throughout, it's fruity and smokey in the beginning but after a while the smokiness goes away but the fruitiness stays. Longevity is quite good, but the projection is okay (At least on my skin).

I'm not saying it doesn't smell good because it is a decent scent and maybe the various batches differ quite dramatically to the current. But for the price tag, I did expect better.

Might be an unpopular opinion, but that's what this site is for :)

This is basically a darker version of Bleecker Street by Bond No.9 which came out 5 years before Aventus. They followed it up with Scent Of Peace which is a variation on Bleecker Street. I think the clones of Aventus have their place because of the obvious price difference, but why bother when you can add these two to your collection and have an arsenal of variations on this theme of fragrance which aren't redundant to own. If you love Aventus this is the way to go. That's 10.3 ounces which would take a long time to go through.

Aventus is my favorite scent since 2012......but compared to 2012-13 batches seems that something is missing in the new formula and replaced with something generic!

They took out all the Richness from the old formula.
Aventus DNA has altered..

What maked Aventus to separated from others was the quality of smell.
Now is obvious that has something generic in it.{nose can't go wrong}.

I also noticed that"
{The 2012 batch for some reason{smokier?} had a good performance also in winter time }
{i thing the whole formula created to have balls for whole year around}

on the other hand
{2015 batches hide on my skin due to the {Greek}cold weather and cannot survive at all}

Don't get me wrong, new batches are very well balanced and some of them performs really well BUT their quality is toned down a bit,,,,

@elmalover both are very good and strong. Like i wrote in the review, even after 8+ hours people could smell it just walking past me, and before that i could smell it anytime from just sitting in the couch to taking a walk outside. So the batch i got is heavy on both.

I bought this 3 days ago and i have only positive things to say about it. Yes, it's expensive, but it's worth every penny if you ask me.

The batch number on mine is 16E01 for those who are interested (i live in sweden, bought it online). Haven't smelled any other batch of it, so i don't have anything to compare it with, but it smells great. First day of wearing it i got easily 8+ hours and even when i couldn't smell it anymore, people around me commented on how good i smelled.

To summarise the smell for those who haven't tried it: it smells mostly like smoky pineapple and if you don't like sweet perfumes, then this is not for you. If you DO like sweet perfumes, this is a must have!
I give it a 10/10, it's that good.

To people who are wondering about the 2015 batches i would gladly announce that at least the 15x21 and 15x11 got 1010 for projection, sillage and longevity!
I have tried more than 20 batches since 2013 and i own 3 bottles with diff batches. The 2015 batches have a more synthetic opening but don't panic this minor synthetic feel lasts 10-15 mnts and then the real Aventus starts to shine!
I have compared to 15X21 to the 14c01. the 15 batch lasts 16+ "on skin" while the 14 batch lasts 10-14 and when i say its lasts i mean people will be able to notice it and smell it properly! many will say that well im getting max 6 hours what is that?? THIS IS NOSE FATIGUE nothing more nothing less!
Cheers all.

Guys, before you buy Creed Aventus, you need to try it first on your skin. Some people skins just doesn't work with Aventus. in my skin Aventus just won't cooperate. I can only smell the pineapple note and i didnt get any smokiness. So it's just smells like a cheap cologne that will turn people around you off. But when i tried it in test strip or paper it smells amazing. So DO NOT BLIND BUY this expensive fragrance. If you're the kind of people who likes to blind buy cologne, i recommend Bleu de chanel or YSL L'homme


Anyway my aventus batch code is: 15P02

I just bought a 2.5oz bottle of the 15T03 batch from Neiman Marcus. I would say this batch is more woody and smoky although I can pick up the pineapple and apple notes to a lesser extent. It's hands down one of the best fragrances I've smelled. I've worn it the past two days and it's already garnered a lot of compliments from men and women alike. Projection is really good for the first 4 hours. I can't smell it after 10 minutes of applying but people tell me a few hours after I apply from 5-6ft away that they can smell it and they want to know what it is. After the first 4 hours, it projects about a half-arms length for the next 4 hours and then becomes a skin scent after that up to the 12th hour. Longevity is a beast and I think its worth every penny.

Disclaimer: I work at Neiman Marcus. If any of you want to pre-order Aventus for her, we get it in store end of July. Employee #257399

Ironic how this beautiful scent causes controversy among the fragrance community when it garners sooooo many complements from the world. There's a reason like 10 other companies have manufactured their version of this stuff. I don't think its fair to get upset at the price when they make other great scents for less. There's a product for everyone out there, Bentleys are for some while a Prius' is for others. Fragrance is subjective and this site is for one to share their opinion on the scent and presentation, not complain about how unfair life is. Do something about it.
Scent 10/10
Quality 10/10
Longevity 8-10 hours easy
Projection - You will get noticed with 2 sprays
Presentation - Its a Creed, very traditional
Price - Fair, its a Luxury product

Can we all stop assuming that spraying a fragrance on your skin will automatically get you compliments? Maybe some of you are getting such good feedback from Aventus because you have an attractive personality and the fragrance just compliments it. On the other hand, maybe the rest of you aren't getting any compliments because your personality isn't attractive and you assume a bottle of cologne will change anything. Fragrance is an accessory, treat it as such. Wearing a watch won't suddenly turn you into a pimp, why would Aventus?

Uhm , so you tell me i don't shower ? I haver the original, i got it at creed boutique in New York . Ok explain this to me why am i getting crazy compliments on designer scents and none from Aventus?1 . I do shower daily and i shower before i apply it . Sorry to ruin your hype of this but where i go to clubbing girls do not like it . I don't believe the hype because i get zero compliments . I really wanna see those compliments . I want some of you make a video when women compliment it and put it on Youtube

Maybe i'm just too young for this one because every time someone comment on this tells me it smells like an old men .

Edit : Aventus hype reminds me of Drakkar Noir hype , guys claim women go crazy over drakkar noir but in reality drakkar noir also hated by most girls

Years ago I bought a 10 ml decant of this and everytime I wore it I couldn't smell it after 2-3 hrs. Then out of nowhere women would compliment me. I have had different batches since then, and I say this in all honesty.....CREED AVENTUS WILL GET YOU NOTICED! The only way I could see someone not getting complimented, is if you have a fake or you don't shower before applying fragrances. I've worn this in every climate, every situation, around different age groups, around different races and the results are always consistant. IMO this is the best fragrance of all time, I mean look at how many companies are trying to duplicate its smell.. that is a sure way to know when something is of quality. Grade A, Perfect 10

All the rave reviews on this this Creed Aventus thread don't seem to add up. This one is so different than all the other colognes, it's like all the positive reviews have to declare it as the "Best cologne of all time!" or " I was stopped and complimented by 49 girls this morning!" where other quality colognes don't mention that at all and simply just explain the composition of the cologne. That being said, I don't believe the hype having tried this before, and let's just say I heard from an inside source that perhaps not all of these reviews are legit. So buyer beware and definitely sample it for a week to see if it justifies all these outrageous claims.

Its a fragrance that smells good . Its hyped up by alot of people because they feel special about being able to afford $439 price tag . I dont beleive half of the reviews here . How can you even prove they are legit ? Most of them could be sellers trying to talk it up to increase profits of they could be Creed Reps. Anything is possible . I indeed own this 120ml bottle it smells good indeed but the price is ridonkulus . I wore it at work and this other guy thought i was wearing mancera cedrat boise but i told him it was creed aventus. He was angry because he said it smelled so damn close to mancera cedrat boise which i also own . I get pissed off when fan boys get angry at negative reviews why does it bother you if someone else doesnt like it ? Everyone is entitled to their own opinion .

This has to be one of the most polarizing scents that's been released in a while. Why polarizing? Clearly everyone loves it, right? Yes and no. When you smell this for the first time, you are either blown away or unimpressed. For those that fall into the first category, your love for this fragrance is highly dependent on which nuance you are exposed to: smokey, fruity, or balanced. Yes, the batch variation is a frustrating caveat that you must accept with this fragrance.

Btw, I'm looking to source more batches, I'm open to anything from 2010-2015.

After exploring many different niche houses and owning almost the whole Creed men's line, you start to think "Aventus is good but it's not really anything special" because there's great scents like Tuscan Leather with the most authentic Leather note I've ever smelled. Or Interlude Man which is just a beast in terms of everything. Even looking at the other Creeds in the lineup, their scents are so good, Aventus doesn't even stand out in the men's line. This isn't me bashing Aventus, Creeds are just THAT good. Every time I start to think Aventus is just "okay" I wear it and get crazy compliments. Guys, believe the hype with this one. When I want compliments, I wear this.

As for batch variations, they are very apparent with the whole lineup. The 3 biggest ones that vary the most are MI, GIT, and Aventus. Some people say "it's barely noticeable" bullshit. It is absolutely noticeable. Now I don't own a "hyped" batch but I can say that it is a good one. I don't think you should hunt for one but if you have a chance to smell before you buy, absolutely go for it.

Scent: 10/10
Projection: 10/10
Longevity: 10/10
Price: Fuck you Creed

Side note: I would not purchase this at retail price. $400 for 4oz is insane. I don't care how good it is.

I recently recieved my new 4 oz bottle of 15y11 (yes, the batches can be significantly different from one another). I'm very pleased with this batch- 10-12 hours of longevity and it projects like a BEAST for the first 3-4 hours.

I completely understand why people may not love this fragrance as much as I do. I've had relatively good luck with finding the right 'batch' (this shouldn't be a thing in perfumery). Consistency should be a hallmark of any respectable perfume house. It is absent with Creeds, particulary Aventus.

If you get lucky, you will likely be very pleased with Aventus as I have been. If you are slightly less fortunate, you can wind up with a batch that is underwhelming and doesn't merit the ridiculous price tag that accompanies it. I personally recommend it; however, I grant it a cautious recommendation.

Oh, and for what it's worth... I've never been complimented more for a scent I was wearing. You might not care about that but just take that for what it's worth.

Definitely NOT unisex; definitely a male cologne though I wouldn't call it masculine at first; sweet, fruity and different; refreshing for summer; I wouldn't go wild smelling this on a man; at first you do get the fruit notes in with the cologne, which I like, but it dries down dry and woody; long lasting

Everyone talks about clones, but seriously, for the same money you spent on Fresco, AB Silver, Insurrection and CDNIM, you could have just bought a decant.

On the facebook groups, you can buy 10ml for $17 and up to 50ml at even better rates.

Aventus is so strong that one spray of it is like 3 or 4 sprays of an average fragrance.

You can buy a 15ml, use it once a week, wear it for a whole year, and you'll still have some left.

What can I say about this fragrance that hasn't been said already? Probably nothing. It smells amazing, projects astoundingly, and has a near indefinite shelf life when sprayed on clothes. Smokey birch tar, candied pineapple flavored life savers, vanilla, and a hint of woods. For those that care about batches, I've owned 11X02, 11Z01, and 12E01. All smell the same to me and all are awesome. I tried a 2015 batch and it's not even the same anymore. Shame.

Limes and pineapples! That the scents straight from the bottle. It's more key limes and kaffir lime leaves rather than the bergamot stated on the listing. The floral middle notes pick up with the jasmine and rose. More sweet than sexy. Base notes are vanilla, musk, lighter woods and the ambergris. Nothing oppressively screaming male in this. Maybe, that's why it gets so much love. I am giving more heart stickers to Creed's Green Irish Tweed, Silver Mountain Water and Millesime Imperial. Silage is very good. But, longevity was about 5 hrs. I was hoping for more at the astounding price point even with the alleged "discounted" price. Don't get me wrong, I love it. But, dang...price riding the heck out of it at almost $100 per ounce! This will be used very sparingly. trust!

Ever hear great things about a movie, your friends insist you see it, it won tons of awards, the critics give it four stars, etc, and when you finally see it, you're like: Meh.
Thats how I feel about Aventus. Its well blended, refined, masculine, and clean with an expensive aire about it. And I must say, that pineapple note is a unique an exceptional surprise, Ive never smelled a note like that before, I really like it. Its just the over all effect of this scent is: Meh. It's the English Patient of the cologne world.

Once upon a time, a pineapple fell in love with some oak moss. After several weeks of casually dating, they decided to go camping. They light a campfire and ended up making hot, stanky love in front of it.

Now, this wasn't the pineapples first rodeo. He'd been been around the block a few times and knew how to please dat oak mozz. After an hour of so of intense pineapple sex, he treated the Oak Moss to a rub down of vanilla, currant, and other assorted oils.

Aventus is the bottled sweat of their sexy time,, and it's a masterpiece.

This is the Rolls Royce of mens fragrances. The first time I sampled it I smelt my hand once every 10 minutes for about 3 hours 'cause it was just that good. I have a 15X01 batch and I absolutely love this juice. If I could only have one fragrance for the rest of my life, hands down this bad boy right here is it.

On my skin, the opening is a burst of fruit with pineapple being the most dominant note and the apple and black currant rounding it off. When it dries down the birch and oak notes become more present. I don't get much smoke from this, but that doesn't matter because the woods and the musk make it a very masculine fragrance. I can't really detect some of the notes that are apparently present like ambergris, vanilla, and jasmine, but I suppose that's what's giving this fragrance its beautiful balance.

The performance? Motherfuckin' god-mode! It's like a Rolls Royce in that you need to know how to handle that much power or you can get someone killed. Do not go more than 3 sprays(unless you're clubbing), or you can easily offend someone even hours later. Even if I don't spray this on my clothes, I get a whiff of Aventus every time I empty my laundry hamper, just from it rubbing off on one of my shirts. That's how potent this juice is.

You will absolutely get what you pay for with this juice. I know it's pricey, but if you look around and find a retail outlet willing to give you a discount or a reliable online source, you can easily save 15-20% on the Creed boutique price. In my opinion, the mixture of perfect balance and performance is definitely worth the price, but sample it first because not everyone falls in love with it like I did. If you do blind buy this, you're either crazy, or moving 2 ounces of blow a week.

The "ultimate men's fragrance" - as tested by a woman. I have heard so much hype about this scent through the years, definitely smelled it on men before, so I thought I'd give it a go. Now, I try not to give too much weight to the gender a scent is assigned. Many times I have found that scents made for men work wonderfully on women, and vice versa. With Aventus...this is NOT the case. There's a reason so many people see it as the quintessential men's scent. Because it smells exactly how "men's cologne" smells. It's the very epitome of what you would think of as a good cologne, but it has no variety.
Aventus smells expensive because people know it's expensive, and wealthy people wear this perfume. I smell this on businessmen, investors, men in nice suits. So it smells expensive by associating- but is it actually worth the pricetag? Perhaps. The greatest thing this scent has going for it is its longevity. This easily lasts over 12 hours. In terms of scent, it is not particularly unique, but it is of good quality. The scent is somewhat linear, but if you're looking to smell like a classy man for the next day, you've got it.
Aventus will last you ages. (This is not one to over-spray.) It's a fairly timeless scent, albeit somewhat overplayed, but universally pleasing. If you're looking for something unique, keep looking. But if you're looking for a staple scent, one that is appropriate for every day and is generally well-liked, this might be your goldmine. It's recognizably classy, supremely long-wearing, and not overbearing.

So I went to a perfume store in Paris that sells creed fragrances, I sprayed Aventus on both wrists, and it was amazing. It lasted more than 12 hours and even a after a shower.
The day after, I went back to the same store and bought a bottle, I'm 100% sure they are not the same juice. With the one I bought, the opening is weaker, the projection is weaker, and longevity is trash.
Sadly, I couldn't get a look at batch number of that 120ml tester that amazed me, but mine is A4216D01. I'm telling you guys, keep away from this one!
Can't understand all these batch variations, but this is just so frustrating, more so after paying 140€ for a 75ml of juice.

Hey guys. I just wanna say that Aventus is my signature scent. There's a reason. It fits in exactly in between a classic men's scent and a zesty metro affair. It's supremely versatile and smells pretty natural. And creed charges a premium fee for the originality and exclusivity of this gem. You all must have seen the alternative cheapies and their comparison on my channel. Ultimately the choice is yours because I feel Aventus is Aventus and each of the 8 fragrances that I own from this house is unique and lovely. My only gripe is the batche variation which in undeniable. If you take me to be of help please stay away from hyped 13x batches. I love my 14g01 which is highly pleasant with less harshness. Pls buy the recent batches like 15u11 and 15y11. They are actually well balanced and last really long. It's not a compliment galore as such but is a blessing to the nose.

Ordered a genuine decant of this from a reputable seller and tried it for the first time yesterday. Its very good, but im someone who likes fragrances that are very unique. For me this smells pretty common...almost like Abrecrombie Fierce. I have heard this garners many compliments and I could totally see that. A crowd pleaser for sure. Its great quality, lasting long and strong.

When completely died down after 6+ hours it smells EXACTLY like L'air Du Desert Morocain by Tauer....like EXACTLY.

I think Aventis has to be the ultimate male fragrance. I've not believed the hype for years and was reluctant to try but now I feel like I've been missing out. It sort of has everything you'd want, it's fresh and fruity but grown up and masculine. It has great longevity, I particularly like the body oil out of the shower followed by a couple of sprays of the cologne.

It's the ultimate masculine scent for me and I can't imagine ever not having this at my disposal, such an addictive fragrance.

I have smelled over a 1000 fragrances before in my life and this is definitely a top 10 for me. whenever i want to make a powerful statement and im looking to grab the attention of those around me i always reach for this one. Everything about this fragrance is amazing from quality, blend, complexity longevity and projection. The most authentic fruit (pineapple) note that i have ever smelled in any fragrance. the only downside is the price but if this was priced more reasonably it would be so overplayed like one million and le male, that it would take away from its uniqueness.

P.S- For those who bash this fragrance i have no problem with that as everybody has different taste in fragrances. However those who claim this fragrance smells cheap; well that is something i can never understand. To each his own this bad boy will always be in my arsenal.

LOL @ the last couple of reviews, especially by "yousmells". Kinda makes me wonder what the hell he's been smelling. But to each their own. I even gave that reviewer a balloon for his efforts. In all honesty, I really would not mind if no one else liked or worn this scent. I also wish this didn't draw so much attention on the forums and youtubes. I would rather see aventus as a well kept secret. But yet every freaking "expert" feels the urge to come on here and cry how "overrated" Creed Aventus is! So folks, here's the truth - this "frag" is awful, now move on to something else, please :)

Fragrance Review For Aventus Creed

Top Notes: Bergamot Black Currant Pineapple Apple

Middle Notes: Birch Patchouli Rose Jasmine

Base Notes: Musk Oak Moss Vanilla Ambergris

I want to thank God or any deity that has kept my sense of smell. This is a beautiful fragrance. For Men? Bah! For Me! For anyone who loves fruity floral chypres. This is a classic chypre a variation on Femme by Rochas. At the beginning I get all the fruit. It's always a good way to start a fragrance. The bergamot citrus is there fresh and refreshing, perfumy and old fashioned citrus. Then I smell grapes courtesy of the currant and a big pineapple. I love pineapple fruit in perfume. These are summer time fruit scents and it's so good while it lasts. Then it does turn unisex and the part that is meant for men shows up: birch wood and patchouli. It's still really not a patchouli scent however. The wood note is really evident as it's joined by the oak wood. A light rose and jasmine scent keep it feminine enough for me. It's classy and I've always loved the rose and jasmine combo. At times this part of the scent reminds me of Jivago 24k. Classy floral fragrance. The dry down is pure vanilla on me. It's such a beautiful fragrance. I wish they would advertise this as a unisex fragrance for men and women. Ladies check this out it's for us too.

Over 40 male reviewer:

Could Aventus be "the" most over-hyped bore of a fragrance ever?

Me thinks so.

No one influences my scent decisions. Aventus is alleged to be among the sexiest and god-like deliveries of olfactory bliss that mankind has ever known.

I am assured that if I wear it, women will be falling all over me, in eager anticipation, desperate need actually, to be near me, to hold me, to hug me, to love me up with the most affectionate delight a man has ever known.

But what is it about an incredibly brief yet pleasing pineapple note, accompanied by a long, drawn-out, fairly potent soggy cardboard, that draws the ladies in, silently screaming with romantic fantasy and wanton lust??

Nothing.

Nothing at all.

That's because it does NOT draw them in, because it is NOT the heaven-delivered-to-only-the-special frag that people are making it out to be.

The positives (that I can barely muster): The opening is nice, but lasts approximately .08 milliseconds.

The following heart and dry down is an interesting wet cardboard, that reminds me of something from elementary school in a neat way; perhaps the day I wet myself with a coloring book in my lap.

Soggy cardboard. I've sworn that's what this smells like, and I've proven it with others agreeing.

Please ladies, tell me: WHAT is sexy about wet cardboard.

Creed is over-rated to an absolutely obnoxious degree.

Aventus is the king of that drunken obnoxiousness.

Please frag comm...just stop it. You're all being too silly.

2 out of 10 at best.

I'd give it a 3 out of 10 if it were $30 a bottle.

P.S. How could I forget? After I gave it my first try, I had a lady smell it. She reacted immediately and without hesitation...absolutely true story: "Eww...yuk...I don't like it."

I really like the scent. it is wonderful. The quality of the oils, excellent. Very good composition by Creed. On the downside, it has become so popular I smell it everywhere. Everyone seems to have it. It is no longer a unique scent. I wore it on a date and my date told me I smelt like a couple of guys she had dated before. I guess if you live a big cities like New York, London, Los Angeles, Miami, you will not stand out from the crowd.

IMO Aventus it's ''worth the hype'' since it's a different fragrance and with personality. The prominent ''fruity smokiness'' chord it's very addictive and original. The birch give that smokiness. Also, I perceive ambergris and oakmoss.


Longevity it's excellent. In return, sillage it's rather moderate. Clearly, it's a expensive fragrance but worth since it's unique and very versatile because it's not overpowering. If you don't like ''old school'' chypre fragrances, you will have to try Aventus.

a review from not so experienced nose (but a very passionate one):

this is not my favourite perfume. i seldomly wear it but when i do, not even a day passed without me getting at least one compliment. i repeat, never, a day passed without me getting at least one compliment whenever i wear this. guys, girls. same.

this never happened with any of my other perfumes. i have a lot of perfumes and i wear different one everyday but whenever i wear this ive to be prepared for my wrist/ neck/ shirt to be picked up and smelled by random people. lol. im not joking at all. not overhyping anything!

i guess if something is very good, u dont have to overhype it. others (esp the haters) will do it for u (indirectly).

Whenever any product comes out and earns great acclaim, a certain number of people will lash out at it *just for that reason*. Had they discovered it themselves, they would be its biggest champions; but because others have discovered it, their conscious or unconscious need to feel superior drives them to bash it. Like Jack Daniel's Old Number 7 - no whisky "expert" on earth will ever give it top ratings *only* because it is so popular...but had it come from some "boutique", "niche" distillery somewhere in Finland or Singapore, they'd be raving about it.

Creed Aventus is in a similar category. The brute fact is that of all the colognes on earth, this is in the top five for plunging women into a near-immediate state of sexual arousal. It might even be number one. I don't know the science behind that; I only know that when I've run blind smell-tests on women, this stuff consistently yields incredible results.

The last test I ran was at Nordstrom, where I allowed my subject (a gorgeous young Asian woman) to smell and rate about fifteen different high-end men's colognes. She liked each one to varying degrees...but when I got to this one, she suddenly froze, mesmerized, her pupils dilated, and then said something so graphically sexual I can't type it here. (Yes, I'm telling the truth).

Now...attracting women is not the only reason to buy a cologne. Sometimes that is a secondary consideration. If you don't like this stuff, don't wear it. I'm just saying, if you DO want to attract women, but this stuff. It has about the same effect on them as does dangling raw meat in front of starving sharks.

I'd say "good luck", but with this stuff, you don't *need* luck.

Absolutely agree with the previous comments from @Pinaccos and @SamAngelo

And listen, Jeremy make reviews snifing the fragrances in the first minute. Reallly do you tjhink thay this is serious??

And putting in his videos girls (not women) who express their opinion in the first minute after smell the fragrances.

Jeremy has tried Aventus because it sounded fragrance by the many comments I had, etc ... He was happy in his world of Chanel, Dior and YSL and knows nothing of the world "niche", etc ...

I'm not saying it's wrong. Just ask a minimum of seriousness.

P.D .: Jeremy likes the girls, put what gets .. No matter fragrance wearing ... XD
I love his videos...

I'd have to agree with Mr. Licorice. Saying a frag got into "Jeremy's Top 10 List" is about as dubious an achievement as "Neil Sedaka's Best Song."

Aventus isn't bad, but unfortunately it's a terribly over-hyped frag lauded by the compliment-starved and by status seekers desperate to be in the Cool Kid's Club. I won't even get into the ridiculous obsession with batch numbers.

Q: What do Vegans, Crossfit fanatics and Aventus-wearers all have in common?

A: They'll bust an artery if they're unable to tell you within the first 5 minutes.

flopi81 I also received 30 ml of 15U11 batch and I share exactly the same experience as you: very fruity opening, the smokiness comes into place after an hour or so, but the fruitiness is still there. Although I expected better longevity/projection! Hope that's due to olfactory fatigue.

I recently bought a 30 ml bottle of the Creed Aventus.It a 15U11 batch.
The opening of this one is very frutty and i can feel a lot of bergamot, apple and pineapple.In the middle i can still smell the fruits but a little bit smookier. Performance of this one is awsome,i sprayed 2 on the chest and 2 on the shirt at about 1900 and morning when i wake up i was stiil able to feel it.
Great fragrance.10/10

I also cant find the pineapple. I found sour, earthy? i cant explain that smell that i get. Is a characteristic perfume and ok is not average but not the best... For sure it mustnt be in top 5 fragrances.
I dont understant why many says tha Terre d Hermes smell like old man and Aventus smell youthfull, playfull, and sexy... for me? It is a mature, musculine scent for over 40s. As all Creed frangrances that smell oldfashion, antique.
scent 7,5-8/10 but for his price.....

I work at a lot moving cars around. Wore Aventus to work one day, didn't event spray just dabbed it on my neck. My manager came to me and she said "I can smell you in every car"
That says a lot about a perfume. It's a beastly perfume especially during the summer and smells good but I wouldn't buy another bottle.

Just purchased a sample of Aventus. I like it… but I am not amazed by it.

I enjoyed the opening a lot but, for me, it faded pretty fast. Then their is the pineapple aspect, which reminds me of a double-sided foam tape by, I think, 3M that I used to use back in the late 90s. Now, I LIKE the scent - and enjoyed it back then, as well - and I am sure that the 3M smell was much stronger and less nuanced than this, but I can’t say I really enjoy it on myself, as a personal scent. I did, however, get a compliment on it yesterday, so that’s a vote in its favor. I think one or two more wearings may change my take on it.

Then, however, there is the dry down, which reminds me of some classic scent that I used to notice on a family friend back in the 70s/80s (have no idea what it was) and which I have encountered since then, though certainly before Aventus’ 2010 launch date. This is the aspect I like the most like about Aventus, though I assume it may be present in other scents as well. It’s the only one of the scents I have that is listed here as having the ambergris note, and that may indeed be what I am finding so appealing.

It smells very manly, like oil/ tire smell. Under that I get some fresh pineapple. I kind of get a Dior Fahrenheit vibe. It doesn't really smell like that that it has the same vibe. Although Aventus is more natural and less synthetic than Fahrenheit. This is the epitome of manliness. It's not my favorite scent but it's really good in making you smell like a confident, financially stable man.

Just got this, curiosity and, what the boys have I ve got too ( I blame having two successful brothers and a dad who used to treat me like his son in skirt and heels, loved it). I find Aventus very well done and interesting. It starts off as most men's scents, fresh and masculine and, even though it maintains its butch character it also develops deeper with more nuances and depths. Within 10 minutes a well blended combo of pineapple and birch appear spiced by musk which gives a depth and an animalic dimension yet without dominating. At a later phase the fruits leave a gorgeous memorable trace and make room for patchouli and ambergris with just a hint of floral input that lends a deep and velvet feel but very subtly. I find the dry down very alluring as leftovers of wood, fruit and jasmine work harmoniously together with birch still going strong over all. Longevity and sillage are extra gigantic, if one dislikes it they are well and truly done for hours! I am sure there are many scents out there just as competent and potent for a fraction of the cost, yet I find that Aventus has a character quite of its own. I must say, I love it.

I started with a 2013 batch. It was rather smokey and I never figured out the longevity. Some days, others could smell it for 10 hours. On other days, it was a skin scent after 5 hours. I used the entire 4 oz. bottle.

Now I have a 2015 batch (15Y01). To my surprise, it is a fresher batch. It is still smokey (thankfully), and it's still Aventus, but the pineapple note is clearly more prominent. Longevity is consistently 10-12 hours, which is something I never got out of the 2013 batch. The last few hours are a little balmy compared to the ashy 2013 batch. I'm happy with it, and I haven't noticed any less compliments.

This fragrance can be considered one of the biggest hyped fragrances of all time. People love to love it and love to hate it, but I would say this fragrance has more fans than enemies.

Depending on the batch, year, etc. you might get different things out of this fragrance. Overall it is a fruity, pineapple type smell combined with a woody smokey element. The combo just is alluring to many people including myself. I understand the people who say it is over rated, and I understand those who love it. I really find the smell addictive and it is definitely a fragrance you could pull off all year round. I don't believe its the magical juice everyone claims, but I do enjoy it. It has something about it that keeps me interested.

Rating based on overall average from different batches I have tried.

Scent- 5/5
Longevity- 4/5
Projection- 4/5
Cost- 1/5

Overall without factoring cost, I would give this fragrance a 5/5. I think it deserves it for what it has accomplished. But I don't believe it is nearly worth the price.

Aventus is something of an enigma. It is completely superb in every aspect. Aventus is awe - inspiring which would explain why so many companies try to mimick its unique scent. It's very popular and Women and men always compliment me when I wear this. This fragrance opens up with smokey pineapple and had a sense of mastery not many fragrance makers can achieve. Quite frankly this fragrance garnishes compliments every time I wear it.

My girlfriend and I are having a baby and my family just threw her a baby shower. There were about 25 women there. At the end I went there to say hello to everyone and hugged all the women. 3 women about fainted they said it smelled so good. My aunt asked me what am I wearing and said I smell manly AF. LOL! One lady who is a family friend asked what I am wearing and said she's buying it for her husband today! I told her and then told her about how much it costs and she said ok maybe for his birthday! Haha!!

One day I was walking in class in college in the early morning around 7:30AM. I Had two sprays of Aventus on my hands, and one on my neck. One guy named Burt said I smelled really really good and two other girls said the same. One time I visited San Fransisco with my girlfriend and we went to her friends house. There were two 17 year old girls, their mom about 45 or so and another woman. They asked what am I wearing and they want it! I have never received compliments like I do when I where Aventus. But that's not why I purchased this masterpiece of a scent. I purchased it because it makes a statement.

Aventus is charming, alluring, sophisticated and downright awesome. Many many companies try and mimick it and some even come pretty close, but it isn't Aventus and will never be. Some people say why would they pay for Aventus when they can buy something that smells similar for $25. I say to you sir, you're not a die hard true collector. I'm not particularly keen on paying for a name brand but with this premium you pay for Aventus you aren't purchasing a fragrance or Parfum. No, you're purchasing a guarantee. A guarantee you will exude confidence, resilience, and elegance. This fragrance is simply sublime.

After hearing soooooo many people talking about this one I had to try it. And it was worth to try, I definetly connected with this one. The pineapple note is one of my favourite scent (not to mention one of my favourite fuits) and I loved it on this one.

I would buy a bottle in Selfridges but I was confident that it had on the Stansted Airport in London. Joke was on me :(

This is a really masculine scent and the lady also gave me another one to try that I loved but I can't seem to remeber the name.

The picture i get with this fragrance is
Slices of ripe pineapple, apple with a bouquet of fully bloomed roses & jasmine lying on a table along with high quality shaving cream & some woods being burnt in a distance.

Smells really natural & high quality. No clone of this fragrance comes close to this in terms of quality, performance & refinement. Totally worth the money.

It is true that it gives nose fatigue. Lasts easily 12+ hours on me & projection is excellent.

It's fruity, smoky and woody, a touch sweet and well balanced. It's hard to imagine a smoky fragrance as "fresh," but Creed has managed to execute it. It doesn't come across as a tropical cocktail despite the unmistakable pineapple note. The birch tar is strong and central, but it is very natural smelling and not overwhelming.

Calling it "smoky pineapple" doesn't do it justice, but it is an apt description. It is unique and enjoyable to wear, very versatile and safe. Longevity and projection are good, even when you think it's not there anymore. It also garners compliments, if that's important to you. Worth the price of admission. 9/10.

As everyone here said it before, this scent is amazing and it will get you noticed, in a good way. My bottles are from newer 2015 batches and they perform really well, I get consistent 10-12+hrs. You may not notice it present past 4-5 hours but it's definitely there and other people can still smell it me from a few feet away.
If you're like me and got interested in Aventus from the descriptions of 11z01 from a few years ago and have not actually tried 11z01 yet, DON'T bother, 15U11 fits exactly into those yummy pineapple legends you read about. Of course, it's no 11z01, but it's all the reviews of 11z01 were about. So, again if you just read about all the amazing fresh pineapple note of 11z01, then it's 15u11 for you, and me.

Smells exactly like a dramatic life of war, peace and romance lived by Emperor Napoleon. Nice job, Creed! I heard their first attempt at this was a scent based on Hannibal that used elephant musk and Alpine elderflowers. It never really took off. Nor did their Caesar tribute using anchovies and olive oil. Then, bam! Pineapples and birch, Napoleon's two favorite smells! ...and a legend was born. Seriously, there's nothing more to analyze about this one. No more earnest, detailed run-downs of notes, I'll save those for the quirkier stuff - it's great. Ninety nine percent of the time, it works every time. If you have the means, I highly recommend...

Beautiful fragrance, can't stop smelling myself when I wear this. Very long longevity, projection I find a bit strange because I can go about half an hour without smelling anything (unless I press my nose against my skin), then all of a sudden I get this big whiff of sweet pineapple. When everything is said and done this is a top class fragrance, it is expensive but you get what you pay for and what you get here is top class and masculine scent. 10/10

@stephan, I feel your pain about the scratches on the silver label. I've noticed that Creed bottles are never perfect, and their customer service claims it's because they're handmade and not mass produced like we have gotten used to. I suppose this is true. My 4oz Aventus has a few small bubbles in the silver label, the black printing on the raised Creed text in the glass is faded in some places, and of course the caps are garbage. Great scent though, I have a very recent bottle and I have no longevity issues. Sometimes the opening smell varies for some reason though, one time it'll be an airy pineapple and other times it will be thicker and more dried fruit similar to Cedrat Boise. Either way I own this for the middle and drydown, once the smokiness comes out, the sillage is a compliment magnet. 2 or 3 each day I wear this. More compliments from guys on average, seems to be more of a "bro" fragrance as it is super masculine and smells better than any guy you're with. Girls like it but not as much as other frags I own IMO.

OK I'm straight woman and yes, this is a panty dropper. I'd put it there with Muscs Koubli Khan, Lonestar Memories, the ancient Brut of thirty years ago, vintage Eau Savage, and vintage Chanel for men. I mean there are gorgeous male perfumes that just smell great, but there are only a few panty droppers per se. Look I'm not trying to be controversial here....haha

Just bought a 16A01 bottle from an official retailer. The horse on the metal part of the bottle has some scratches, but I'm sure this bottle is not a fake because the place where I bought doesn't sell fake bottles. Such an expensive fragrance should not have scratches on the bottle. Very nice pineapple, not overly sweet. Very intoxicating juice, can't stop sniffing myself. Great performances.

i have great longevity issue with most fragrances, even with lots of sprays. i find that Aventus has amazing longevity.... but only with lots of sprays. and as an already expensive fragrance for longevity-fanatics this one is really only for the well off. a true exclusive fragrance. if that wasn't the case then everybody would be smelling like aventus.

This is a super simple and light fragrance. It's a blast of smooth pineapple and cedar and within less than an hour it become so weak and subtle that I can't tell it's even there. It's a really mellow smooth cedar woods and smoke scent on the dry down and I don't really understand all the hype around it. It's almost as if it's something L'Occitane would have produced. I much prefer the classics like GIT, SMW, MI, Tabarome M, I actually think Himalaya is a better scent, and I'm not really that into Himalaya.

Hard to imagine anybody actively disliking this scent. It would not be right to use this every day, but whenever I return to Aventus after using other fragrances, I am always blown away again by how GOOD this smells. Despite all the quibbling over batch variations, this just smells GOOD.

in my country (IRAN) every 3 men that walk across me in the street, one of them wear Aventus,the other wear lalique(that i hate) and the third person wear 1 million. i dont mean that they really have Aventus or 1million but they have perfume that smell exactly like aventus . in every shop you can find easyly plenty of perfumes that smell exactly like it so now it's not unique and classy scent but even sooo tackyy.it really doent worth this price and even half.
9/10 for the scent and quality.
6/10 for the price.
تو ایران از بغل هر سه نفری که رد میشی یکیشون بوی وان میلیون میدهٰ یکیشون بوی مزخرف لالیک میده و یکیشون بوی کرید اونتوس میده. بله درسته که دو سال اولش که هر سه این عطرا اومد فوق العاده هر سه تاشون عطرای خاص و باکلاسی بودن ولی الان شما می توانید با حتی 100 هزار تومن یه عطری بگیرید که دقیقا بوی اونتوس بده . البته نه به این تمیزی ولی خوب همه که تشخیص پیچیدگیه عطر رو نمیدن پس واقعا اگه 800 هزار تومن بابت این عطر بدید پولتونو دور ریختید.

I used to not believe in the whole "nasal fatigue" bullshit. I thought it was just part of the hype but nasal fatigue is very real with this one. I'll go to work, cone home, sleep, wake up, and can still smell it projecting without having to look for it. It's such a natural scent that your body doesn't pick it up after a while. I get 24 hours of solid projection out of this.

Well anyway....

I love Aventus! I don't care about batches or napolean or even the price.

I like it because it makes me feel confident and recieves lots of compliments.

It's a smooth blend of pineapple, birch and subtle spices.

It lasts most of the day and others can smell it once my nose has gone blind to it.

It does not remind me of anything else, so is unique to me!

If it was cheaper I would wear it everyday, in all weather and to a range of events and occasions.

And me and Aventus lived happily ever after!

I can not wear Aventus and i got the fruity batch from Creed boutique in New York . I get nothing but Negative comments . Every girl i met hate that one , apparently collage girls really dislike the scent
I would get more compliments if i wore AXE body spray


Edit : I realized why girls hate aventus... because the black current note and black current can have the cat piss odor profile . I start to think thats why most girls are disgusted by it .

This fragrance is so good, it make me angry!

From top to bottom, it is actually pretty linear. I get an initial blast of pineapple and birch. This is pretty much what I get throughout the whole fragrance, except there is one caveat--- This is the best smelling pineapple I have smelled in a fragrance. This paints the picture of pouring fresh(squeezed?) pineapple juice on and walking through the woods(I don't know why, but it just reminds me of it!) This smell is excellent, and I challenge anyone to find someone who truly does not like it! Is it my favorite scent? No. It's not even my favorite creed! But it just works for every occa..... I digress. After a couple hours, you get the same pineapple/birch combo but the signature musk/ambergris comes into play, prolonging the fragrance for a few more hours until it dies off.

Application: The real question is, when can't you wear this? This is a spring and summer savant, but can easily be worn in any situation in the winter and fall. Would I wear this during the winter and fall? No. But can you? Yes. I really feel the best situation would be casual, work, or date during the spring and summer. This is the definition of signature scent worthy!

Sprays: 2-4(depending on how much you want to stand out)

Longevity: 7/10(The only surprise from this fragrance, I get about 4-6 hours from it)
Projection: 10/10(Yep. I don't judge on how much it projects, but rather if it projects as much as I want it too. I don't want a gourmand to fill the room, but rather leave a nice bubble. This bad boy will fill the room if you go over 3 sprays.)
Versatility: 10/10(Oh yeah. Whenever, wherever)
Compliments: 10/10(This thing is magic. You will be the best smelling guy in the room to most people.)
Smell: 10/10(Smells fantastic. Authentic Pineapple)
Overall: 10/10(Blind Buy it)

*Mini Rant*

This bad boy just works for any scenario, Everyone loves it, it has never failed to get me a compliment, it smells great, it just works! The problem is, it works SO GOOD. The complement factor on this thing put all of my colognes to shame and this isn't even my favorite fragrance. It just seems like I could sell all my bottles and just use aventus, but I won't because it isn't my favorite smell! Anytime I don't get a compliment or I'm not "feeling" a fragrance that I'm wearing that day, I think to myself: should have worn aventus. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr!

This is a great fragrance. I get a smokey pineapple feel from this fragrance. This is definitely something you can wear for all seasons and occasions. The versatility is great. The only problem I have with Aventus is the longevity and projection. With the money you spend on a niche fragrance you expect it to be a beast. I know everyone has different skin so the reaction will be different depending on the individual. Overall I give this fragrance an 8 out of 10.

Update Review: My bottle was purchased at Nordstrom's, I'm confident it's authentic. I've wore this maybe 3 times in 3 different temps and it still performs like a beast I have to say...if you purchase a REAL bottle of this then you're in for a treat. Believe the hypes that surrounds this fragrance. Not the hype because it's Niche or "High End" but because it's actually a really good scent. I sprayed this around 1:00 p.m., went to the mall, ate at Red Robin, was around cigar smoke and went bowling that night and my GF could still smell it when we woke up the NEXT day???? I'm rarely quick to say this but if you don't have/like this then, you are truly missing out!!!

I'm dying to try this one, after reading a bit about it I figured out the current versions are very weak and diminished. after seeking for decent old batch I noticed prices I can't afford. it's a shame such an expansive perfume being weak like this. anyone can recommend a new current batch that still has good balance and good Sillage and Longevity?

Adventus might be expensive , but I find it is worthy of the price, the balance between the smoky notes and the pineapple is divine!! Then longevity is outstanding , even after several washes, I can still smell it on my husband ' clothes..what more can I say! Refined, Royal, fresh and deep at the same time, I agree there are other nice masculine scents out there, but Aventus is really distinctive.

I have both Creed Aventus and Insurrection Pure II, and my final conclusion is they are not the same. Here's why I say that....I purchased Insurrection Pure II initially last year and to be honest I was floored at the scent! The pineapple was first out the gate, immediately followed by this musky, smoky birch that eventually dries down to a soft musk. I did receive a few compliments when I wore it, and more importantly I LIKED IT.

So now that I have Aventus in my collection, the first thing I did was compare the two. I sprayed them both in the boxes and waited....within the first 10 seconds you could already notice major differences. I'll admit CREED just does it right with the quality. Insurrection Pure II will definitely stand on it's own, in reality it is it's own fragrance. Yes the notes are similar, but if you've smelled the two you would understand. My next goal is to successfully layer them and hopefully they'll enhance each other. Both bottles have great sillage and longevity IMO. The bigger difference is the price, which is by at the least $200 hahahaha. Both are good fragrances, both are worth the purchase, Insurrection II just seems like the better deal with price point.

I didn't get any pineapple, and very little of the legendary smokey-fruit accord. I've tried this from at least three different batches. I've also been given two small bottles as gifts two years apart. So its not as if I haven't given it a go.

What I do get/my experiences:

- Opens quite akin to Guerlain Homme and dries down (very quickly!) like a sanitised (not a bad thing) Euris. I was lukewarm on the Guerlain and I detested the Eucris (and kicked myself for spending so much on dreck--which like Aventus was billed as something legendary). It's got that weird, vaguely minty-black current-smokey thing going on.

- Don't get any of the ambergris (or Ambroxan), vanilla, rose, or birch.

- Overall feeling of disappointment.

For the $429 this going for in Australian department stores, you could do an awful lot better. This is a classic example of how price and hype often lets down.

That's my opinion, I'm not going to care much about the hate that will surely be levied at it.

Sadly I have to agree with many of the recent reviews regarding the longevity and weakness of aventus
I must be honest and say that many reviews drive me crazy regarding batch numbers reformulation etc etc etc. whilst im sure everyone is valid to the individual, and most probably correct I have yet to encounter any performance problems on any of the niche fragrances I am lucky enough to buy.

However this one is a whole new ball game.

I have recently bought 2 new bottles with two different batch codes form two legitimate outlets ,and they are both dissapointingly poor. The smell of aventus is absolutely my favourite ever and in my opinion the best ever made. But sadly the performance really is equal to a £10 bargain buy flea market purchase. I asked two of my work colleagues to give it a try as maybe my skin just sucked it up or maybe nose fatigue, but both had the same performance.
I cannot justify paying £215 for something that is difficult to smell after 10mins and has complely dissapeared after an hour or so.
Fingers crossed that the rumoured changes coming to 2016 prove to be correct and Creed Aventus can regain its former legendary glory and return to the top of the pile.

I hate leaving negative reviews,in fact this is probably my first ever,but feel compelled to share my experience as I am just so deflated.

This is a great fragrance, but that's it-highly over-rated.

Review; Creed did an outstanding job on producing this scent and it is indeed a hot item. (side note: I acquired a 1oz. bottle, more than half-full, from a fellow fragrance fan (williamssellsllc) on eBay, thx, friend!)

Some get more smoke as others get more pineapple...for me, I get birch and smoke and the pineapple is hiding somewhere...wait there it is. Ummmmmm, nice!

A nice fragrance from this house that will garner many compliments. Love it!
(The Orchid Man-Frapin smells very similar to this if you want to save money.....fyi) just sayin'......(even Mancera Cedrat Boise's opening)

Update: I am not into the various batches-perhaps, there is a variety of difference. I have a few different bottles [1oz, 2.5oz, and a 2.5oz of oil] and they all smell the same and are of differing batches.

(I gotta hand it to Creed, she's making tons of money from these raving arguments, I mean reviews!!)!

Just received my Aventus yesterday, batch number: LT4215X21.

A little to early to give a thorough review of this batch just yet, I like to give my honest opinion after about two month's after initial first spray.

What I will say is that after the first spray on the wrist (just one) a friend of mine asked if I was going out, I said why she said you smell nice, I was sat about ten feet away so 10/10 for the sillage.

Initially I got the sweet pineapple, apples & bergamot after which that smoky birch,leather, vanilla and oakmoss starts to come through after about 15 miutes. With just the one spray to the wrist I was still able to smell this after seven hours. In the "warmer" month's to come I am sure this fragrance will be at it's best.

This is a very unique, distinctive, exclusive and expensive fragrance. Is it worth it? only the individual who wears it can answer that.

If you can afford it? I am sure you will like it.

The great achievement of Creed Aventus is that it has the fruity sweetness that is so popular with modern fragrances, while still retaining a strong masculine formality. It just ticks every box. Sexy? Yes. Formal and sophisticated? Yes. Playful? Yes. Suitable for day or night? Yes.
Perhaps not the be all and end all of men's fragrances, but if I could only pick one to use for the rest of my days, maybe this would be it.

Ordered a 10ml decant of this recently, and I must say it's a great quality fragrance. The mixture of the smoky birch and the sweetness of the pineapple, blending with a myriad of other fruity notes and what I presume is the oakmoss leads to a very fascinating fragrance.

That being said... the sheer price of this juice, and the amount of inconsistency in regards to scent / longevity between batches means that I realistically will not be buying a full bottle of this. It's a shame, but it looks like I will stick to buying the occasional decant whilst exploring other options.

Ok great smell and everything but what's with this house's inconsistency. The batch I have has a really weak performance. If I am really heavy on the trigger, maybe I can get a good 2 hour performance from it. But it's a 300$ frag for God's sake. I have 2 other Creed frags (Original Santal and Millissime Imperial) and all have this batch inconsistency problem. No more Creed for me, thank you.

You do not have to spend the most to get the best... But this is not a money saving forum!

I would never spend £200 on a bottle of wine... But I chose to buy Aventus because I LOVE it!

Batch business aside, I smell apple, pineapple and smoky woods...

Colleagues, friends and random people (most complimented fragrance I've worn) can smell it long after olfactory fatigue sets in!

Aventus makes me feel confident and strong - it's become my 'go to' for job interviews, meetings and formal occasions.

I cannot drink champagne every day and Aventus is saved for special occasions...

Got my Aventus bottle from the creed boutique directly. It is fruity but very heavy and I feel like I am 70 years old when I wear it. It reminds an old eau de cologne from 80th, the one I always smelled in every barber's shops at that time. Overrated, overpriced, unpleasant. Don't buy it blindly, try it first!

What more can be said about Aventus that has not already been said... one millions times. Aventus is the KING of fragrances. Hands down the most complimented fragrance in my collection.

One new trend I have been seeing lately from some of the Creed sales reps is the idea that batch variations are in our imaginations. Hmmm... is that so? While I will admit that I do have a very good imagination, I am not buying that approach. I currently own 13Z01, 14G01 and 14K01. I have sampled a few of the 2011s, 2013s and 2015. There ARE differences in these batches. Some are shuttle differences, like 14G01 and 14K01, some have major differences, like 14K01 and 15N01, which are completely different in projection and longevity. While the scent is similar between 14K01 and 15N01, it is not the same scent to my nose. So I do not subscribe to the idea that batch variations are in our imaginations.

Olfactory fatigue is another topic all together that Aventus lovers have to battle. I find some batches stay with me, while others do not, even though other people can still smell them on me.

The rumor on the street at the moment is that in 2016 batch version will go away and all Aventus bottles will be identical going forward. I am good with that, as long as they replicate a good batch with great projection and longevity.

So finding Aventus is not good enough, finding the right Aventus batch that works for you is the challenge. Try a sample of a specific batch before you invest in that batch, or you may regret it.

Happy hunting.

When I wear this I feel like I should boating on my yacht with the cool feel of salt spray and the warm sun on my face. Just above a seagull cries, hovering in our wake, looking for its next meal. OH....thats right... I don't have a yacht.
Well, for $300 plus you can smell like you might own a yacht. On the top of this scent, I get a slight pineapple smell but it's mostly Bergamot, Oakmoss, and Patchouli. As it fades the Pineapple becomes stronger and it becomes woody smelling...The birch?...In the final dry down it is oakmoss, birch and patchouli lightened by citrus notes.
On me, a couple of sprays radiated out like a cloud hovering around me for hours and yet it is still a light scent. If people can't smell this on themselves they are going through olfactory fatigue. Everyone else will smell it on you.
The drydown lasts forever and after showering the next day, I can still smell it on me as a skin scent.
Great scent and on me it lasts forever, but I feel a little pretentious when I wear it. Definitely smells like a million bucks.

If you want to know if you should buy this fragrance let me share a quick story with you. I walk into a bagel shop and as I approach the counter, a man walks up to me and says, "I don't know if this is what you intended to happen, but you walked pass my wife and she says to me that guy smells really good". He then asked me what I was wearing and he put the name of that fragrance in his phone. Mind you, this was five hours after I sprayed it. Long story short, believe the hype.

For generations Mankind has been searching for the perfect fragrance. A fragrance that lasts all day without fading. A fragrance that suits nearly any occasion whether professional, casual, romantic, or adventurous. A fragrance that bathes the wearer in an aura of sublime elegance without being overpowering. A fragrance that was milked from the very essence of refined masculinity. Ladies and gentlemen, in my travels to the distant and dangerous land of Neiman Marcus, I have found such a fragrance. To the indigenous people it is known as a king. To some, even, a God. If you listen closely to the wind whispering across the lonely sea, you can hear its name: Aventus.

A powerfully understated infusion of fruits, woods, leather, patchouli, and musk of impeccable quality. The fragrance equivalent of fine silk. No, not the most complex or the most daring fragrance on the market, but it doesn't have to be those things to be truly great. Aventus is like a crisp white shirt, or a 1964 Aston Martin DB5: simple, yet universally appealing, and eternally fashionable.

Hi,

Love this fragrance a lot my girl loves this stuff it is for love making.
batch 13x01 and 13t0l i don't like 13q01 batch

Also
You need to let it sit for a while like two months after spraying the first spray and the performance will improve. during the first month the peformance is quite sucky . Also I do get olfactory fatigue from this one fast , but my girlfriend still smells this stuff after 6 hours but i tend to reapply because i can't smell this stuff. i love aventus so much ! i'll try to buy club de nuit intense man

What can I say that hasn't already been said? A smokey pineapple with some fruit mixed in, batch A42B11X02. It's a really nice smelling scent good for all four seasons, though would probably go easy on the trigger during those really hot days. It can be worn for almost any occasion - dressed up, night out, work...although I probably would NOT wear it super casually if only for the cost.

Speaking of cost, Creed retail prices are ridiculous. A 4oz is a shade under $400!!! Discount sites are a bit more reasonable, but WOW - you better really love this fragrance because you can get other really high quality fragrances for less. I still don't understand the reasoning for the batch variations either - I prefer a consistent experience every time I purchase a fragrance based on prior experience or reviews.

Sillage is strong for the first two hours, then sits on my skin for another four hours. That was off of four sprays. More sprays might increase the longevity, but avoid coming into contact with anyone for a few hours because you might gas them out.

Overpriced but a very nice smelling scent.

Very masculine and well blended, complex scent.

I own a few batches of Creed Aventus, and it's true that the new one from 2016 doesn't perform as well as my older bottles.

Scent: 10/10
Projection: 9/10
Sillage: 9/10
Longevity: 10/10

On the opening I mainly get the Fresh Pineapple, 10 minutes later the other notes become more pronounced.

I bought a sample of this and here's my take on it:

Firstly, whenever I smell this I imagine a man with pale skin and black hair wearing a black V-neck shirt, dark blue pants, and black oxford shoes. He has the intelligence of a fox and the strength of a lion. The main theme that I am getting from Aventus is that it is dark, mysterious, classy and yet dominant. It's probably good to wear this with any clothing that is dark and black like a tuxedo. Now for the scent itself.

It opens up with the green apple with the smokey birch in the background. 30mins-1hr it turns into a smokey pineapple. Somehow it kind of smells like a church scent. I don't know what batch the company decanted from but the composition between the fruits and the smoke is well balanced. The quality is soft, creamy and heavenly. However, the performance of this frag didn't live to my expectations.

To my skin it is like spraying with flavored water. It lasts about 9 hours with 4-5 hours of good projection and sillage with the rest of being a skin scent. I guess it's because of my expectations after reading so many reviews exaggerating the longevity. So buy a sample and test it out!

In conclusion Aventus does smell good with a score of 9 out of 10. However, I don't get to experience the enjoyment throughout the day which for me is the purpose of fragrances. It has nothing to do with olfactory fatigue. None of the people around me could smell it around the 5 hour mark. Will I buy it? Yes, but only once if I have a few money to spare and to build up my collection. But seeing the fragrance becoming more expensive and the quality and performance becoming weaker, the company should change their name from Creed to Greed.

People cannot act civil around you when you're wearing this. People constantly ask me what I'm wearing when I have this on. It's like crack to people. The contrasting citrus and smokey moss makes it alluring and separates it from the rest of the fragrances. Its almost like your wearing two different fragrances at once and that catches peoples attention.


LESS IS MORE WITH THIS. I only get compliments when I wear 3 sprays. If I wear more than 3 aprays, I don't get complimented. 3 sprays is the perfect amount for this. 3 sprays will fill a room for the first couple hours. This is the ultimate compliment getter.


Batch: 15Q01 and 14A01

Creed Aventus is by far one of my favorite colognes ever purchased.

It definitely ranks in my top 5 colognes at #1 easily. It is really a unique scent and very different than anything I have smelled anyone wearing around my area. It's that one type of cologne you do not even tell your wife/girlfriend or your friends/family about because of how amazing this smell is. Haha!

So pros and cons on Creed Aventus:

Pros - Very Long Lasting (I wore this bright early in the morning and it wasn't gone until the next day.) Sillage is okay. I'd say it has a heavy sillage on me, but it might not be that way for other people based on their skin. When I first bought this cologne I sprayed only one spray in the center of my neck and it traveled behind me nearly making the air smell like Creed Aventus. Lol If you're one for compliments, this one will have just about everybody asking you what it is.

Cons - Price is expensive. Although I can understand why the price is as high as it is, I would never use this as a signature scent. A signature scent should be one that can last you all year long. I have wore this once during the summer, once in the spring, and once more again in the winter. It works better in the summer, but still has a good smell that comes out during the winter just not as effective.

So basically I would recommend this cologne only if you were to go out on a date. An evening with your friends/family maybe, but not likely. If you are looking to wear it everyday as your signature scent then I wouldn't recommend it for being the price that it stands at. Overall it is a very enjoyable cologne to have on and it really gets attention. I would definitely buy this cologne again once mine is gone; however, I haven't worn it since November and don't plan on wearing it really until another "special" occasion.

I get mostly the top and base notes from Aventus. I do like it, though it's not a smell I would want to wear myself. I'm not sure why it's so hyped up. The pineapple is nice, but it doesn't smell natural. In fact, it reminds me of some of the laundry detergents sold here in Mexico, so it doesn't come off as expensive-smelling like several of the other Creed fragrances I really like.

Something in the base notes reminds me of Gucci Nobile, which I also don't like for myself but can appreciate. Maybe it's the way the oakmoss and musk are blended in these two fragrances.

So, in summary, smells good—not great—in theory, but not for me.

@Guest from Indonesia.

I recommend you never buy this blindly.
I have had 4 different batches, and everyone had a sillage and longevity rather poor, especially the latter, which is the most modern, built in 2015 with the new vaporizer. That was a disaster, because I also did not notice some nuances of the above and also was the most expensive of all. Sillage and longevity, very poor.
A joke.

Just purchased 15u11 batch, i seem to have some problem with this batch.

- when first sprayed, it smells like rubbing alcohol, and after a few minutes i smell a lot of pinapple, didnt get any smoky note

- based on my exprience the projection and longevity were very poor, 30 minutes and its gone, only a very faint skin scent remains after that

It seems like a watered version of what it used to be

Really disapointed for its price

Bought it from trusted seller, so it was not fake

GUYS, I NEED YOUR HELP BADLY.

I'm from Indonesia and 18 years old.I have smelled a thousand fragrance, from the most compliment perfume, until the most hated. And I actually don't really like any 'the most compliment frag'. My most favourite perfume of all time is Terre D'Hermes. When I sniff it after it's been sprayed, I feel like I'm in heaven. you know, my characteristics fragrance is fresh, unique, can be citrusy, a litte bit sweet and vanilla, can be woody. I don't really like YSL La Nuit De L'Homme, it is just OK on me. I really love Acqua Di Gio, Dolce Gabbana The One (but it has poor sillage and longevity which I don't really want to buy), Versace Eau Fraiche, Hugo Boss Bottled, Dior Homme Sport.

NOW, the problem is.. I really want to buy Creed Aventus so bad, because so many people said that this is the best perfume in the world. And it's masculine, sexy, and of course it has great sillage and longevity. You know, there's no creed store in Indonesia. There's no one who sell Creed fragrance unless on the internet. IF I BUY IT BLINDLY, WITHOUT KNOWING ITS SCENT (BECAUSE I CAN'T SMELL THE SCENT FIRST IN INDONESIA), WILL I DISSAPOINTED? SHARE YOUR OPINION GUYS BASED FROM ALL OF MY WORDS ABOVE.

THANK YOU VERY VERY VERY MUCH!

I got a few examples in the mail of creed aventus and giving it a try for a few days now.
i have came to a conclusion i do not like this smell , i can understand why so many people praise it though , it does smell good and clean but to me it smell like what a rich white male middle age douchebag would smell , there is certain arrogance to this smell i just can't stand, there is nothing warm and welcoming about it.

Ok... Aventus and I, it is a quite long story: I firstly hoped the perfect perfume according to its description (patchouli, moss, black current, pineapple, ambergris...WoW !!), so I bought a 75ml bottle on 2011. Despitely, it was not as perfect as my expectation, not bad but a lack of "je ne sais quoi"...However, a good compliment getter !

On june 2015, my bottle was almost empty even if the juice was not worn a lot throughout the years. I consulted Fragrantica reviews and saw a lot of complaints about batches. Some people described the perfect blend whereas others described a shame...But the fragrance seems to have a universal popularity, I am hesitating at the moment. Actually, I decided to buy another bottle, a big one 120ML !! I am crazy man !

I confirm the variations between the batches.
2011 bottle was just ok, fine (smoky/patchouli batch).
2015 bottle is an indescribable potion (Bright pineapple/patchouli/mossy...a complex bright & sweet & manly scent). This is a fantastic monster in all !!! 2 sprays: 2 days longevity, excellent projection & sillage. Overall, the fragrance is a dream ! My all time favorite fragrance !! It performs better in summer. (Batch 15P02)

I heard there were no more batches issues since 2016 (new manufacturing process), therefore I hope the standard batch will be the same as mine, this is god in a bottle !

Note: I also bought another Green Irish Tweed bottle. What a good fragrance too !!!

I'll summarize my review in one sentence: It's a pleasing scent.

Despite the extended ingredient list, it dries down to a smoky pineapple that has tremendous variance between batch runs. Some are more smoky and some are more pineapple and that's the entire essence of Aventus.

My initial experience was that projection and longevity were poor. It stayed close to my skin and longevity was about four hours maximum. At first, I thought it might have been the bottle but then I sold it and the guy I sold it to said it performed tremendously well on him, with excellent projection and longevity. Longevity for him was ten to twelve hours or more.

Later, I was sent a sample of the famed "Z01" batch but unfortunately, my experience was the same with that one as well.

I've resigned myself to the fact that this fragrance probably just doesn't work well with my skin, however, I enjoy the scent enough to where I plan to reacquire another bottle in the future.

** Update **

Oddly, I ordered another bottle and surprisingly, the performance of the new bottle is dramatically better.

The difference in the bottle that I have currently and the previous bottle was an earlier manufacture date and a different batch. The previous bottle was a 4oz, whereas this one is a 2.5 but I can't imagine how the difference in bottle size could have any bearing on the fragrance itself. While you'll find extended discussion on Aventus batch codes on other sites, for those of you that are interested, the current bottle I own has a batch code of 15R01 from 2015.

With the new bottle, the initial spray was a blast of pineapple, almost as if I'd fallen into a vat of it and there was only a slight smoky effect. The first couple of hours were not exactly suffocating but they were intense. At roughly four hours, there was still a 4-6 inch radiance and longevity was very good. Easily 8-10 hours out of this one.

By no means am I an Aventus fan boy but I will say that I'm quite puzzled by how different two bottles can be. If you believe in the Creed batch variance claims, this would seem to confirm it.

** Update 08-08-16 **

After getting a bottle of 15R11, which is very fruity and dominated by a strong pineapple note, there is no myth in regard to the variance of this fragrance on a batch by batch basis. Not only will the scent vary (sometimes very noticeably) but the projection and longevity will as well.

I'm convinced that an individual's experience with this fragrance is dependent upon finding the right batch to suit their tastes. My advice would be that if you find a batch that you don't care for or doesn't work for you, take it back and try to find another that does. There are sites where you can reference the batch codes and see feedback from people who've tried them.

Description: Imagine yourself by the breezy seaside where the salty air mixes with the scent of a tart, juicy pineapple being grilled over a smoky fire.

Final notes: The rumors are true: Aventus is a compliment magnet - but for panties to be dropped, as expected by some, you will have to work on your personality. Jokes aside, Aventus is a very well-crafted and non-trivial fresh fragrance by a house that could tone down its anachronistic enthusiasm for everything imperial.

-----
*Creativity: A frag gets a perfect score if it was the first of its kind on the market and if this kind was a game changer; **Blend: A perfect blend will trigger your imagination, take you places, but won't try to be the exact copy of something that exists in the world (in other words, single-themed gourmands get low scores); ***Distinctiveness: If everybody is wearing it and/or there are uncounted olfactory twins on the market: low score; ****Allure: Assessment based on verbal and non-verbal reactions from my surroundings.

"Bad" is in the eye of the beholder, keep that in mind.

So, if i sampled Aventus somewhere, and loved it, but ended up buying some that was lesser to my nose than my initial sampling......to ME, that is a "bad batch".

I've never heard of so much batch variation for one cologne, ever. That "Aventus note" is nearly impossible to replicate, even for Creed apparently.

So let's instead, stop telling people what they should stop saying about their opinions. ALL opinions are valid here.

This review is based on a 5ml sample i obtained of batch C4215U11. It's a nice fragrance, which lacks the synthetic smelling overtones of many - a fresh, juicy, natural scent. But seems quite simple in composition - I'm not convinced i can detect a masterfully complex blend, although maybe that's my nose. A nice roasted pineapple and fresh grass under it that i assume is the birch, but seems quite linear - doesn't evolve a great deal in the dry-down compared to many good fragrances I have tried. I like it but i'm really confused why this is so expensive- judging by the ingredients and the perceivable complexity, i really wouldn't identify this as a top-shelf fragrance, with price-tag to match, based on the scent alone. It's got decent longevity and sillage though. I like it, but not nearly enough to pay for a full bottle when i could get three bottles of other good EDTs for the same money. That's not to say i couldn't afford to if it had stunned me, so this isn't a case of sour grapes as some reviewers are suggesting of others who aren't convinced its worth the price tag- bit of a low shot that one!

Aventus has such an incredible capacity of uplifting my mood and of those who surrounds me when I'm wearing. My co-workers always notice when I'm wearing aventus and depending of how much stressed we are, they give me compliments and ask me to always wear this one, cause it gives a sensation of well-bein in the enviroment that we work (office). I notice in the opening a very natural and juicy pineapple, and after 40 minutes or sum, i feel the birch coming in with the whole thing turning into a fruity/woody/smoky scent, with a well blended musk in the end. Divine!

Aventus belongs to the royalty.

I go for it whenever I'm tired of my routine, and it holds me down! Also garners compliments like heck! Longevity is bombastic, 12 hours + on my skin!!!

Overall 10 out of 10

It smells really nice... In fact, it smells like it has been farted down from heaven by an angel of the sweetest order. Still, that doesn't stop it being an abominable waste of money. I have used it extensively. It doesn't receive as many compliments as it should, and that makes it a huge paradox. If this was half the price, it would still be overpriced, but would it be as hyped? Definitely not. Creed price themselves into a realm of exclusivity, and people buy into it, hoping that the price relates to some kind of magical quality of the fragrance. These are not elixirs: these are just, fragrances.

So, are you spending lots to smell really nice, or are you wasting lots to smell really nice? That is essentially, what it comes down to with this house. I believe it is the latter, FYI.

Those who are only getting 30 minute longevity need to state where they're purchasing their bottles from. I find Creed's far too potent on clothes AND skin (and I only spray once). I've purchased my bottles from Creed and they all have all day longevity/projection. If you want to bash Creed for their outrageous greedy price point then I'll pass you the mic. But please, stop this ridiculous criticism about their performance.

finally have this in my collection.

scent: smelled like smthing citrusy at the begining and turn into something like smoky fruit n some bitter scent. hard to explain. nice smell.but i think doesnt mean it is the best scent in the world.

performance: sillage is very good on my skin. people can smell it around 6 ft from me.but it last for 1-1.5 hours only.the rest u need people to stand very close to u. i used 3 sprays only.
after 12 hours, i still can smell it on my skin.
im live in tropical country. its hard to find a fragrance that give performance such as this.

however...the price is sooo expensive.
i will use it for special event only.not for everyday.

i still believe that this is not best scent in d world.
try it first k.

the fact that sooo many people refer to good performance on "clothes" says it all.

I don,t buy a fragrance to spray my clothes, the stuff has to perform on skin so i can experience the evolution of the scent and aventus fails that ALOT, especially with their late batches.

Before i had great experience with aventus, but now..my shitty batch
A superfruity 30 minute scent. Talk about spraying water. No nosefatigue! tested it on many friends and family. All the same result on each single one of them.

I think the house of Creed is much overrated and their customers care is almost nonexistent when i tried alongside with many others to mention this issue. No comment on that one, never.
Once you bought it, you bought it. Case closed!

Their ultrastiff, stubborn attitude and their ridiculous "Pride" which seems like something they will never forsake, makes me turn my head from this house

IRRATIONAL OBSESSION

Yes, this is expensive, but let's leave price aside. After all, money is not everything in this world and you can always get a small tester of this and use this for special occasions, if you are really pressed for money.

==
I like this smell a lot.

In a world of citrusy chemical smells, this one sends a rather unapologetic RAW (as in not synthetic) masculine message: I'm a man, deal with it. The manliness comes from the birch with its addictive smoky notes, it is that fresh and very slightly smokey edge that is remembered. I spray this in the morning and every once in a while take a deep sniff off my clothes to get a sense of it. It's just so good.

Pineapple? It might be there, but it is VERY dumbed down. This is all about super fresh birch and a drop of smoke. It's smooth, cold, confident. Yet, it has that very slight sweetness (maybe that's the pineapple) that still makes it so appealing.

Longevity: Excellent, I can smell this on my sweater a week after spraying
Sillage: A bit higher than average

UPDATE: after using this a couple of months: wow, just wow. Aventus is hands down the best perfume in my modest collection. I use it sparsely for special occasions and just a sniff of it gives me tremendous CONFIDENCE. I never do this with other fragrances, but with Aventus I feel the urge to sniff myself every once in a while to get that confidence boost.

I also combine it with others, since the Aventus sticks so well to clothes, but I am not so certain whether it has such staying power on my skin. I would just spray gently Aventus on my jacket and use a second layer of something else, it is awesome.

Update #2: I have an irrational obsession with this smell. Upping the score to the full 10/10.

10/10

Great scent that has a fruity opening with a very smoky and masculine finish. It's very expensive, which is obviously a downside and not everyone will find this appealing considering the price. It's definitely worth a try and to get some vial samples to see if it works. It is very powerful, so be careful not to spray too much.

Scent: 9/10
Longevity: 8/10
Sillage: 10/10...it's up there with Theirry Mugler A-Men but not as invasive
Price: 1/10 or 10/10 if you're in love with it...and if you are in love with it, it's worth the 200 plus price tag.

I like it, but I don't love it. You've got to be careful with this scent as it's very easy to overdo it. People seem to like it on me, but I find the pineapple slightly too sickly and the silage too much. Definitely one to use in small volumes. It's a good clubbing scent though.

In my city there are a lot of local shops where you can buy most of the perfumes for nothing; they sell perfumes 'essences'; that they have essence oil for Aventus..you go there, standing for your perfume to be diluted and filled in your bottle..and then here your Aventus..!!!

I like that and like the idea that I would only pay about 10USD for a 50ml of 'fresh cut' Aventus..LOL

Besides I came across some of Aventus clones and know that they maybe a good reasonable alternative for who can not afford paying all that for Aventus, -and I am one of those- ..still at the end of the day Aventus is a perfume.

I am not obsessed in brands, and know how much someone would pay when baying a branded item just for the name in spite of the quality or the real cost of that item..but believe me Aventus is another story..it is not only about the smell itself..which is indeed a good smell, but also about the quality and performance..I have never owned Aventus,I wish I can buy it once, I worked in a place where the boss's presence was declared from his great Aventus, it was like an early alarm..once he rushed into our floor that great smell -which at that time was still unknown for me- fills the whole space..and leaves a profound trail behind him
Aventus is not just it smells great,but it does that in a great and classy way..It is all about QUALITY.

10/10.

Generally, I am not about the brands. If something smells good, no matter the manufacturer, I will happily enjoy it.

Aventus I came upon in the States recently while traveling and I was first struck by it because it reminded me of Bleeker Street by Bond No 9 - only better, and more value for money! Bleeker is excellent too, but Aventus... god. I am considering buying it and making it my signature.

It has a fresh quality to it but is incredibly classic, intelligent, and sharp - not in smell, but like a well put together outfit. It is the kind of scent that only adds to your wardrobe and personality and if it calls to you, then enjoy it. I made my best friend smell it and she was freaking out too. It's just incredible! As a woman who has no problem wearing male fragrances if I like them, out of all of them, I think this is one a female could get away with the most. Or maybe it just suits my skin... but again.. if you really respond to it, it probably works with you too.


I imagine hugging someone hello wearing this, and delighting them. It's just so striking and beautiful and multi-faceted. Probably one of the best fragrances ever made that will go down as a cult classic.

It is not too much of a surprise that 'Aventus' is a bold, rich fragrance which is both complex and enduring, not unlike the life of its inspiring emperor. Utilizing exceptional ingredients from around the world which bear significance within the life of Napoleon, Olivier and his son have created the most popular fragrance ever developed within the history of CREED. The composition opens with a mouth watering amalgam of luscious fruits. Corsican blackcurrent, Italian bergamot, French Calville Blanc apples, and royal pineapple comprise the top notes. One notices a bouquet of fruits upon initially spraying 'Aventus', marked by the pineapple's biting citrus and sweet facets. Blackcurrent imparts a wine-like quality to the fragrance as if smelling a freshly uncorked bottle of Merlot. The historic French Calville Blanc apples' scent is tart yet sweet with a banana-like aroma, deliciously melding with the rest of the fruit filled opening.
The midrange notes include Napolean roses, Louisiana birch, Egyptian jasmine and patchouli. Here it is the birch wood's smokey essence which predominates. It offers a unique compliment to the opening pineapple, creating a smokey-citrus accord which is undeniably mesmerizing. If one is weary of a male fragrance including two feminine florals, fear not. The included rose and jasmine are indeed very subtle, seemingly drowned out by the birch wood's dominating presence. Their inclusion does however serve to gently soften what could have otherwise been an overly harsh fragrance. 'Aventus' concludes upon a base of Spanish oak moss, ambergris and French vanilla. The dry down is laden with oak moss's bitter, peppery, and earthy aroma along with the salty warmth of ambergris. Vanilla's sweetly caressing qualities envelop its wearer in the overall richness of the scent, concluding the fragrance on a high note.

This is a very special scent. I immediately smell the pineapple on first spray, and the scent progresses into what I would describe as a fresh out the shower dynamic beast. I also seem to pick up hints of mint infused within the citrus note, bit mint is not in the notes. The base certainly is heavy in musk and vanilla. This fragrance encases you and creates a cloud of deliciousness throughout the day. I have dry skin so longevity is typically an issue for me, but not with this guy. Aventus lasts from morning to night, with just 3 sprays - but if it is clubbing setting you might squirt 5(max). I also found that my bottle evolved over time and that the potency seemed to increase after a few months of opening it! Anyone else have that?

In terms of it's wild compliment getting reputation. When I first sprayed (or should I say, over sprayed) this on, a female colleague was like "What is that smell??? Its a cologne someone is wearing?" She proceeded to really freak out over this one, in a good way. To date I have received one other compliment on this, in the evening approximately 10 hours after spraying - a testament for how long this thing can last! My girlfriend however told me I smelled like a hairy man? So in someways I guess it depends on the audience and whether this really matches your personality, and I would categorize this fragrance as distinctly masculine. Though I am an androgynous female that enjoys masculine scents, I dont think Aventus really matches my character, and thus will never be my signature scent. I do however enjoy it and love to wear it in casual settings on sunny days perhaps at the beach sort of vibe for me.

It is not a linear scent either, it evolves while maintaining its character, if you have a nose for it you will know what it is from start to finish. I would recommend this one for a playful and perhaps younger (below 35) sporty sort of guy with a great deal of confidence. I don't know if it would really work well in parallel with other (more brooding or serious?) types. I can see why this is a hit amongst basketball players.

Longevity: 10/10 (I can still smell the musky vanilla base after my shirt has been through the laundry)
Sillage: 9/10 This definitely creates a trail
Scent: 10/10 quite unique and special
Versatility: 6.5/10 can easily be signature but only for the right personality, i see this as more casual than work, and more summer than winter vibe

In terms of cost - Lets just say, if this works for you and could constitute as a signature, it is definitely worth the price tag. I blind bought this, and while I can't say it is exactly right for me, I don't regret it, and probably would have still purchased either way as it is one of the most pleasing scents my nose has encountered. I really wish this matched my style a little bit more!

Dear genny17
Call me the bully, the boogieman or whatever you want. People usually do when in my perspective i,m just givin my opinion.
Do you come to tell us that your husband is a doctor and you,re a fancy chique little girl who nows all about the world or do you want to tell something about aventus?
You,re totally wrong. The batches do differ pretty clear. Some are more smoky and some are really really fruity. I have both and on my 3rd now. And hey, i,m not a doctor but just an average joe and still i traveled the world.
My point, you really don,t have to be the elite to get aventus. Even a poor man will find a way to get it if it is his passion. The whole fragrance commune knows aventus. I love fragrances but i dislike selfdeclared fancy peeps

I care to disagree with the former review, as much as I agree batches do differ a bit, overall the pineapple/smoke combination is pretty much the same from bottle to bottle, and my husband has owned four so far.
Is there a hype around Aventus? Not sure, I think as it is so expensive and prestigious it gets put down a lot by people who cannot afford it.
It is my husband' s favorite scent, there isn't one quite like it, so the price in my views is justified, and again, if it is too expensive for you, there are plenty of nice masculine scents out there!! My husband is a doctor, a man well traveled and stylish, he has worn many good scents, yet none like Aventus!!

A slightly smoky pineapple/fruity musk with some herbs and florals thrown in to boot. Overall, a very likable fragrance.

But Aventus is fraught with some serious problems.

1) Batch variation. I have just one sample vial in my possession, but I've sampled Aventus on occasion from fragrance boutiques and have experienced some variances (mostly how the smokiness or pineapple can be strong or weak). While I like the balance of my sample, I do not feel comfortable risking a full bottle that will smell differently.

2) Cost. There does NOT appear to be anything in the composition of this fragrance that justifies the high price over other CREED offerings. The only rare/scarce ingredient would be ambergris, but it is not authentic (it's actually synthetic). IMHO, the only reason why CREED has priced it so high is a careful attenuation based on demand. They're getting enough revenue to satisfy their profit margins, while still maintaining a high cachet level that drives continued admiring and attraction to the brand.

Do I like Aventus? Yes... as I understand it from the version I received. But it appears to be a crap shoot as to what it will smell like next time.

Would I buy Aventus? Eh... This is not what I'd call wise spending of money, unless you get a really good discount. I'd much rather purchase other fragrances of similar character that cost significantly less... or just go for a vintage legend (you can easily do so at this price).

Would I accept it as a gift? Depending on the circumstances, probably yes. But if it's from someone who will never see my fragrance collection, I'll sell it to fund something else.

★NOTE★
I find the hype train around CREED to be annoying, to say the least. I don't buy the conjured up past of Victorian elites wearing CREED. And, frankly I find CREED pricing to be over the top relative to what you get... at full retail. Discounted, and now things change up a bit.
I have to admit, I wouldn't have ever considered Aventus, but after sampling more than one batch, I can say that there IS a batch with my name on it. Eventually, I will own Aventus. ;-)

For sale 30 ml glass decant bottle of a more vintage fruity batch. PM me if interested.
This fragrance is about the hype and anti hype. The bottom line is the fragrance got hyped up for a reason. Yes, perhaps any fragrance with this much hype is over hyped.. No matter what fragrance it is.. But it is a very nice appealing smell that is addictive. A smokey pineapple scent that sticks in your nose and gets you hooked. I get the appeal of this fragrance. I personally really like it and could wear it as a signature scent. My main problem with aventus is the price. I don't believe a fragrance is worth 300 dollars.. and the only way I get my aventus fix is by buying and selling splits/decants. I won't pay retail for a bottle. Out of the creeds I have tried, aventus is my favorite thus far.

So .. where to start?

Maybe I should start my review pointing out that I was yet another tool buying into the hype of Aventus. Capital mistake right there but at least Aventus made me aware to take a lot of hyped up reviews with a grain of salt. Lesson learned, let's stay positive and move along.

I do like Aventus, it's a nice and very acceptable fragrance with some unique touches that distinguish it from the other stuff in my collection. It's versatile and fresh and you can almost say it's one of the best fragrances to start with when exploring niche. Why? Because it's one of the least pretentious offerings in the niche and is a very close neighbor of what designers try to do (mostly) : offer something that appeals to most.

What do I mean with least pretentious? No weird notes, no fecal stuff, no musk bombs, no alcohols extracts, no vague herbs for your 250$ but just a good composition of something that will make you smell nice and modern. It's safe with a tiny edge and fits everyone that is nicely dressed.

However, some items need to be taken into consideration for my personal review :

a) This does not drop panties auto-magically, in fact this is one of my LEAST complimented fragrances ever. I still get the panty droppin' going but I'm pretty sure Aventus has absolutely nothing to do with ;)

b) Longevity is one of the weirdest things on this fragrance. You can simply not trust it. One day it will last forever, the other it will last for a few hours tops. Nose fatigue or other strange forces at hand? I don't know but it's not a trustworthy companion making it a doubtful signature choice. Actually, the same is true for projection.

c) Batch issues, if true, really make me doubt in buying this fragrance again. Especially when you keep the price in the back of your mind.

d) Creed -opposed to this fragrance- is a very pretentious company with stupid stories that market the shit out of their products. All allowed but I feel like a tool for buying into the hype but I also feel like a tool whenever a company sells me bullshit stories about their legacy to gimmick their products. It makes me want to throw away the product out of shame.


So.......
I'm glad I have it and I will definitely use it again in the summer but I'm not left in a pool of mouthwatering saliva when smelling it, nor are the ladies so far.

Batch c01
Longevity: 8/10
Silage: 8/10 this is good because I hate loud silage
Versatility:10/10
Scent: 9/10

I personally love sweet, warm, sophisticated scents eventhough I am living in hot and humid location like south east asia. I found that almost of refresh scents are very weak in term of longevity and they are also generic and they don't leave any good impression at all. Indeed I am using bleu the chanel for my office wear but it is not complex and too mainstream here but Aventus is an exceptional exception. I don't like much the opening even I love the smell of pineapple but it is too pepery. The drydown is really the beaty of this fragrance, smoky, woodsy but clean, sexy and masculine. I really love it.

The best part of Creed Aventus is its versatility. Yes, if I am wearing it daily for formal office wear and I am also ready for any for very formal meeting where I want to leave a very good image to my business partners. For any date out after work, club, bar, or elegant dating occasions, it is a beast. What I need to have an atomizer to boost and bring the smell back. It can't go wrong.

No matter what people say I think it is worth every single penny that I have spent. Tobacco Vanille and La Nuit de L'homme are currently my signature scents but Creed Aventus is a must and mainstay in my wardrobe. There are haters and lovers due to its fame and Creed's service but if you are fragrance lover, you cannot ignore this wonderful product.

Sorry for my bad English.

I want this frag so bad. Finally got around to sampling it and I love it. Super natural pineapple scent mixed with smoke and woods. It actually smells like eating a fresh pineapple in a barbershop with the smell of shaving cream everywhere, high quality shaving cream not barbasol.

Crazy longevity
Very good projection.

I've only sampled this frag a bunch of times and don't know if it was a smokey batch and that's what's keeping me from buying a full bottle.

If anyone on here is wanting to get rid of a partial full bottle please message me.
Thanx

I've just gotten a 15U11 batch of Aventus and I have to say that it's the best batch I've smelt yet. It's heavy on the pineapple but it's not overly sweet. Very unique scent that the clones can't really capture like they could in the earlier batches. 15U11 doesn't have the pungent plastic or burning sensation of the earlier batches, so if you like the smokey batches, 15U11 definitely isn't for you, but in my opinion, this is definitely the way Aventus should smell as it's very youthful, fresh and fruity.

Aventus had previously not been my favorite Creed. In fact, Millesime Imperial is still my favorite. I was somewhat surprised to find that through a blind test between Aventus, MI, GIT, Erolfa, and SMW, 3 out of the 4 young (<25 years old) women I had smell my Creeds preferred Aventus over the others on men. Across the board, they preferred SMW on a woman. GIT was hit or miss, with 2 of the women saying it smelt too mature and reminiscent of an expensive soap. Erolfa didn't offend, but only 1 of the women considered it their favorite while the others passed it along unenthusiastically. MI garnered moderate satisfaction as well, although one of the women claimed it was too strong. All 4 enjoyed Aventus, and 3 of them said it was better than the other Creeds by a fair margin.

Do with that what you'd like, but in my observations, the 15U11 batch of Aventus is very much liked by women and I can see why.

Ok, it smells great, yes it is a luxury to buy it, but very few fragrances compare to it.My husband wears it, and he wears Bleu de Chanel too, Aventus just mixes in a unique way fruits and smokey notes...it smells rare, it smells distinctive..so you cannot argue the quality of the stuff...maybe there are cheaper scents that come close, but so far, Aventus remains a unique and distinctive scent, above many out there..
Don't seem wise to me to critique people who can afford it!? And gees, some reviewers should control their potty mouth!

Creed don't care if you have a poor batch, surely with all the expertise and money they charge they could acknowledge you as a customer. I have 20 Creed Fragrances, but I am shocked how they treat the customers, basically as chumps, so I just threw all of them in the local dump, because that's what their customer service is like, actually I am being cruel to the dump they have better customer service manners. Shame on you Creed!

I am not sure why this is such a hype it is, given the silly price it is. It, to me smells like a damp woody bonfire where your mum runs out to throw lemons an pineapple on it in some sort of ritual. Its woodsy, smokey, and yet a hint of lemony pineapple. There are far better fragrances than this and some that cost 1/10th of the price. Creed Customer Services is very French too. It reminds me of the Songat refugee camp, they don't give a damn even when they know they have a problem. We got our money we don't care! I know that Creed Fragrances are some of the most faked,so I refuse to buy this on eBay, yet when you by this from one of London's Iconic shopping Emporiums, where people will buy a one small chocolate for a bag you know the one and the fragrance is basically crap, you have to ask serious questions. maybe the Ebay version and the non genuine would smell better. It couldn't smell worse. At worse it would smell like water or denatured alcohol How can they ask over £215 for this? I will stick to my Old Spice and not smell like Stig of the dump and pay through the nose, and I wished it had been a blocked nose to that end,when I realised I had just found that Aventus meant success, in this case for the company successfully ripping the people off! Be it the upper echelons or working class!

This is a pass for me. I'll tell you why. On me, all I get is a sharp shot of juniper berry. It's like your drunk uncles bottle of cheap gin. Plus, all this nonsense about different batches and quality and longevity. For the insane price they charge for this I expect way more. If you like this and want similar quality, give a shot to Voyage d'Hermes. They're quite similar, minus the ridiculous price tag.

I got a tester with batch code C02, and it lasts but the definite main accord is oak moss, it is strong throughout the whole life of the fragrance and there is very little pineapple except for the opening (which is what I was hoping for)

The performance for the CO1 batch of Aventus is INCREDIBLEEEEEEEEEEEE. i am the sort of person who cannot get any meaningful performance out of any fragrance that isn't super sweet or a heavy floral but i get sillage from aventus - - not just the ability to smell it on my skin, but actual sillage on my neck after 13 hours upon waking up in the morning i can still smell it!

also, do not buy aventus or bleu de chanel for the opening, both are too strong and not particularly appealing. however the drydown of both fragrances should be their selling point, aventus drydown = unbeatable.

Creed Aventus. Fresh/ Fruity / Sweet / Tropical / classy / elegant / Masculine / Young and verrrrrrrrrrrry SEXY.

This is a must have for any cologne collection. A for sure compliment getter. Everyone will ask what you are wearing. Its well worth the price of admission. Buy it.

likes Everything

dislikes $$$$Price. if you can find it on Ebay from a trusted seller than go for it. no cologne on this planet (unless it cures cancer) is worth more than $150. instead of dumping $380 on this bottle of liquid buy yourself APPLE STOCK.

Smoky birch softened by lots of clean, sharp musk and and a little fruitiness. I don't get much pineapple in my batch. A nice masculine, an attention getter and personality communicator for thoroughly masculine men, but it is also cold and stark and can come across as imposing and unwelcoming.

Tried it after purchasing some samples from ebay. It's a great fragrance. The thing about batches is real. I first bought a 30ml Aventus, and then a 75 ml and they smell a little different, but the base is the same. I like it, and it REALLY gets A LOT of compliments from people. Some people said that it smells like a good after shave, but they LOVED it. Others say that they just love the smell.
One last thing, even though you may think that after some hours the smell fades away, people still can smell it. Don't know why, but it works :)

Finally I get to experience the famous Aventus. Tested from a sample this morning and again this evening.
Unmistakable pineapple right from the start. The pineapple note is so dominant that I found it hard to discern much else underneath. I thought I got a kind of camphory smell too at the start, and woods later on.
After a couple of hours the scent becomes mellower, smoother, but it's still hard to get past the pineapple.
My preconceptions of this scent were of a crazy, totally-tropical thing, like a hawaiian shirt, that would just make me feel silly: so not my thing. However it wasn't at all like that. Actually it's a fresh, fruity, very modern, and extremely pleasant scent. It grew on me throughout the day, and was complimented too. I can see how young guys would want this - it's upbeat, very attractive, clean. It's the kind of scent a younger guy would completely expect to appeal to the opposite sex. Whether it actually does or not is for the women to decide. In this sense for me it's absolutely a young man's fragrance.
Longevity : ages, about 8 hours (maybe too long to smell of pineapple?). Sillage : moderate to a bit more than moderate.
Is it worth the price tag? Who am I to say, maybe it is.
Overall a thumbs up.

today i bought aventus creed based on many online praising, i bought it for 380usd , to my nose i didnt like it smell like lemon to me , and i hate lemon smell if i want lemon smell i could buy a dish soap with lemon smell, and to my shock i have cedrat boise by mancera and afnan supermacy which are the same smell i didnt find creed aventus unique, and did read online that they changed the formulation took out oakmoss which now doesnt make the fragrance last long as they were, if you want creed aventus just buy cedrat boise by mancera or afnan supermacy or insurrection pure II or club de nuit by armaf they all smell the same but much cheaper than aventus really overrated in my opinion.

7.5/10
high price there are many fragrances with same smell which are cheaper.
اليوم اشتريت العطر بمبلغ وقدره 115 دينار كويتي ولا يستحق كل هذا المبلغ, اشتريته بناء على مدح الناس في الانترنت له ولكن الصدمة عندما اشتريته تبين لي أن رائحته مثل mancera cedrat boise و afnan supermacy والمصيبة أن عطر افنان لا يأتي حتى عشر مبلغ افنتس كريد و رائحته ليمون لو اردت رائحة الليمون فالأفضل أن اشتري فيري لغسيل الصحون إني لأكره رائحة الليمون تعطيني شعور بردائة العطر وقد قرأت في الانترنت أنهم قد غيروا تركيبة العطر مما أدى إلى تقليل قوة العطر, والذي يريد مثل رائحة كريد افنتس فاليشتري العطورات المشابهة له الموصوفة أعلاه.

I wear this fragrance (14M01) approximatly once a month. Every time i get a compliment.
It's fresh, manly, simple, but refined and high class.
Longevity (10-12 hours).
Projection : perfect.

BUT even if it's a nice scent, i can not wear this fragrance regularly. IMO, the simplicity (only pineapple and smoky) of this fragrance can make it boring if it wears daily.

How can people Love this?First of all
Extremely overpriced it was good between 2010-2012 after that batches are crap.
How is it possible Creed to make different batch each time some more fruity some more smokey,its a customer's rip off,who will pay the price even this is weak as hell.
I owned different batches and few 120ml bottles but sold them ,guess why they was weak or bad batches, i never found what i was searching for,and best batches from 2010 -2011 are extremely overpriced on ebay insane prices.
So good luck finding the real creed,who was really greed with projection longevity etcs...
These days its comercial junk who doesnt deserve the money unless they fix their formula and make it stronger again which never gonna happen since some ingredients like oak moss are not allowed any more..

SCENT: I just purchased a 14M01 batch which is great. In comparison to my last batch, this is less fruity with more refinement in the way of polished leather, smokey bergamot and musk. Lasts a good 12 hours with 2 sprays to the neck. The smell of Aventus creates deep nostalgia for me as it reminds me of an Uncle who had an old classic sports car in the eighties, the strong scent of the leather seats, fruity Magic Tree air fresheners, expensive cologne and smoked cigarettes all mixed inside that car. It is quite a specific smell to me, perhaps many will find it endearing but not be sure why. For wet shavers, it layers well with some of the high-end shaving creams from the likes of Truefitt & Hill and Geo. F. Trumper. A very pleasant scent that garners compliments, especially from women (but go easy on the trigger).

PRODUCT: The Napoleon theme is somewhat pretentious and the packaging simply doesn't live up to the theme. It looks more like a plastic toy you would give to a toddler. Very cheap looking...

On a separate note I would like to say that Creed has done a great injustice to it customers. More than 20 batches of varying quality and performance. They even smell very different from batch to batch. And they still cannot produce a cap to fit the bottle properly (???). If you are paying this amount of money for a product, quality control should not be an issue. Totally unacceptable in my book. Sorry, but it has to be said...

Otherwise, my 14M01 batch is excellent!

One of the best fragrances ever created. A pineappley, fresh, woody aphrodisiac that girls get all googly eyed over. Never have I received so many sincere 'OH my god, you smell amazing!' compliments on a fragrance ever. At least one compliment each wear guaranteed. I luckily purchased the 15R11 batch, and although it took about two weeks to mature into the projection and longevity powerhouse that it is, the wait was definitely worth it! I wanna say the price isn't justified, but... it really is.

Ticks all the boxes. 10/10.

I recently purchased this fragrance, and I mostly get leather and smoke for the first 5-10 minutes after putting this on. After that, the pineapple reveals itself and it stays there almost until the very end, where it still smells like pineapple to me, but it does have more woody and floral aspects to it. Aventus lasts a long time on my skin and I can still smell it projecting off my neck 10 hours after application, which I perceive as a truly pleasant surprise, since other fragrances like La Nuit De L'Homme or Dior Homme Intense become skin scents on me 3-4 hours after putting them on - a point at which I have to press my nose against my wrist to be able to smell them, alas! I sprayed this on at 11 A.M., went on a bus trip, visited a friend of mine, went to the football stadium, came back home 9 hours later and Aventus is still there doing its job. A great, great fragrance, without a shadow of a doubt, and most definitely something you will be amazed by if you're rather inexperienced with fragrances, just like yours truly. Heck, this might knock you off your socks, even if you're a fragrance veteran, I don't know. I can only speak for myself.

So yes, the scent is amazing, and so are La Nuit or DHI, but Aventus' performance and longevity makes it better than those two in my book, though I do wish to add that I wouldn't wear this beloved juice of mine too frequently, since I can't afford to blow big bucks on a fragrance all too often. :-)

On a seperate note, I got one of the "bad" batches, as people like to call them, but it doesn't seem bad to me at all. So don't worry about it, if you too got yourself a "bad batch", or if you're about to get one (as a gift perhaps... lucky you!)

Here's something i discovered a few weeks ago. Note: This might come in handy... The 1st Aventus Bottle i bought, was Batch Z01 the Fruity Pineapple. Second Aventus Bottle i bought, was the 1N01. The 1N01 is the Smoky, leathery, and far less fruity batch which i did not like. I was very dissapointed cause i felt like my money went down the drain. I kept the bottle but did not use for a year. A few weeks ago i decided to use the 1N01. Believe it or not the N101 became like the Z01 with that legendary fruity scent. I compared both Batches side by side and they smelled exactly alike. The N101 got better with time. The N101 was like a Caterpillar transforming into that beautiful Z01 Butterfly. Creed uses real oils in their fragrances, so it takes time for them to mix or age well in the bottle. Don't throw or give away those so called bad batches, cause they need time to get better.

Going off a sample from Nordstroms, I find this to be a lovely fragrance with very good performance: longevity is a solid 8 hours with very acceptable projection. Is it worth the retail price? Not in my view. Some people below imply that "contrary" reviews are the result of "sour grapes" from those that cannot afford it. I find that extremely arrogant. Is it a very nice perfume? Yes. Does it smell better and out perform a plethora of beautiful perfumes that can be had for a fraction of it's price? I think not. If someone is so "bowled over" by this perfume that they are willing to pay what some think is an outrageous price, I will respect that. But to disparage those with a more reasoned view by assuming it is beyond their "reach" is the height of ignorance and stupidity.

Being new to the fragrance community, I only became aware of Creed's products a short time ago. I have had an interest in perfumes since my school days many years ago and since leaving school, I have always had at least 2 or 3 fragrances to choose from. Anyway, I digress. I read reviews about Aventus and thought I have to try that after the positivity it receives and the high esteem in which it is held. So, I sampled it and although disappointed initially, I warmed to it very quickly and I get the hype. I took the plunge and bought a bottle which has just arrived.

This is a classy fragrance, as you would expect given the price and Creed's history and standing in the perfume world. I got the fruity smell initially - I was expecting something along the lines of Hugo Red - but this is better and more fruity. Once it has settled down, it becomes an amazing smell to my nose. I have just been reading about iffy batches and I have to hope that I have a good one. I normally suffer with longevity on my skin, but it's so far, so good with Aventus after several hours. I have recently changed my signature scent after several years to Alford & Hoffs excellent fragrance - time will tell if Aventus usurps it; it's a distinct possibility.

This is as good as many say it is. Take the plunge and treat yourself!

AVENTUS DISASTER 2015 batches

I read a lot of people have issues with their 2015 batch including myself.
I suggest you contact creed uk and tell them about your experience with your newest 2015 purchase. Else they will never do something about it.
I too had a bottle from 2011 and 2013 and they performed very good. Whole day.With more smoke than the 2015.
My batch is 2015Q01 and it is a joke. 30 minutes and its gone, only a very faint skin scent remains after that. I have to litteraly put my nose on it to get that very faint smell. Nobody can smell me. I put 6 heavy sprays.
And this has NOTHING to do with nose fatigue. Nobody around me can smell me.
It seems like an extremely watered down version of what it used to be.
I contacted creed about it and they just beat around the bush. Crap

Somehow this fragrance reminds me of my uncle. Memories of visiting him as a kid and vacations at his house in the hills. The trips to the golf club. I'm not saying this smells old or dated at all. It brings memories of the times. But here is where it gets weird. I've heard others say the same too, that it reminds them of their father or someone from childhood. I was shocked to hear fragrance bros mention it too! well... Nevertheless I love it, and even more because of the memories it evokes.

Check the batches. This is a massive point! Got the batch 15R11 and lasts half hour. I had a sample from a year ago and lasts all day with a better smell. Stupid creed, who was quality control/consistency?. As if they can't afford mass-spectrometry analysis when they charge prices CEO'S can only afford. Anyways 2013 creed is the greatest and it smells excellent. If you want more pinapple just get the scent oil separate for $6 and mix in. The pinapple scent oil I got smells of excellent quality too, and lasts. I also have the insurrection pure 2 and silver XS, they all vary but the better of the two is XS, because more fruit but has more metallic, while pure 2 has more smoke and no metallic.

Traian and FRANT1C - let me take you both straight to school you noobs.3 bottles of £215/120ml Aventus-that's £1.8/ml-are you out of your mind? Next time buy your Creed fragrances from France-you can get 500ml decanter for €389,00/£280 -that's £0.56/ml - more than 3 times cheaper.Shipping to Woking/Surrey is 12euros.

I think everything has being already said about this now "legendary" fragrance, but anyway i'm gonna give my 2 cents because that's why we are here right?.

The scent is amazing, and is one of the few fragrances that you get right away what the notes are: pineapple smoked out.
Like someone started a fire and put pineapples in it, that's the smell you get from Aventus. It is warm, delicious and masculine, and the best part is that no other fragrance (at least the ones i've tried) smells remotely like it. So you are guaranteed to smell unique.

On the other hand, the performance on this one is awful. I don't know if it's me or what, but after 30 minutes it became a skin scent and had to reaply. I've never being against Creeds being expensive, because this is a luxury brand whe are talking about, like would you complain about the price of a rolls royce or a Ferrari? no, because you know what kind of brand you are dealing with, however I would not pay a Creed price if I have to reapply every 2 hours; I'll be broke in no time.

If you are gonna charge 200+ dollars for a fragrance, at least make it really strong so yo get your money's worth. A really great and unique fragrance is not worth it if the performance sucks.

Would you buy a Porche if every 10 miles you had to change tires? no?..........that's why I thought.

I have 14M01 batch and it opens up fruity and fresh and after like 20 mins it turns very woody and musky with not a lot of fruit but after 1-2h the pineapple really shows up and its an amazing balance between fruity and darker notes. Longevity is about 8-12h which is very good and projection is good. In my opinion its the best fragrance out there for men so its a 10/10

Quintessential haute Classic with the modern-faced fizzy fruits combined with finely smoked-woody ashes at top. Possibly the best 'go-to' of all time - provided you get the 'batch' you want.

Here is a problem; smokey or not to be smokey? How smokey do you want your pineapple Sir/Madam? (not a very common question!)

The infamous batch variations which Creed should really be embarrassed for: there must be 1000's as each sample I've ever tried has been slightly different in the relative amounts of pineapples or freshness vs smoke!

Really, my score has easily swung between a 9 without smoke for me, to 5 with an 'ashy' sample. It's hair-pullingly infuriating!

Let me also say that this is by no means an absolute stunner; the top notes *can be. But the pineapple is a little too green for my liking and there is (related to the greeness or not) a slight orangey-leathery vibe that I also find in Mancera's Cedrat boise.

But with other Houses using stuff like Berries, apricots, bananas as their 'Attention-getter' notes (and successfully) - Creed has no small modern competition on their hands!

Also, more adventurous 'safee' orientals wouldn't have gone amiss, like Tea, tolu basalm, and the wonderful creamy cashmere wood.

Also, I wanted more from the rose, rather than the greeny-leathery stuff to soften it up a bit but meh, the 'standard' will do, even with it's odd tendency to simply disappear after 30 minutes!

This aside - I'll let Aventus slide in general (assuming I always get my favorite batch lol) - it's a modern Classic and well deserved for good reason so now; positives.

Notes used here are great - going with pineapple top means mass-appeal!

But Aventus is so good because it simply does what should always be practiced by all parfumiers, not only the High-end ones. Use of top Quality ingredients and amazing blending. It's easily a benchmark for other niche scents if not actually the finest Quality produced notes itself.

Imo, the designers are simply not worthy of substitute here and I have tested almost all the clones to date!

The fresh fruits are crisp and transparent beyond belief, it's just a real shame Aventus has some very annoying downsides like the misleading 'birch' note should be labelled 'smoky' or even 'burning' birch! The pineapple leans towards the green side but the blackcurrant and vanilla from the base provide sweetness.

The drydown has rich, mildy spiced rose, woods and blackcurrant although sadly again the drydown is very faint - but others appear to detect it much better.

I just hope they fix these issues properly one day.

So for summary, it's not the best but I think it's the best Benchmark.

Becasue of the amazing Top notes of the fruity batch and overall Quality, it squeaks in at an 8; but there are quite a few better (and I emphasize 'better') 'keynote/all-occasion' scents and overall Niche houses out there - don't let the buck stop at Creed!

Scent: 8/10.
Quality: 10/10.

edit: in the meantime, check out the awfully named Cedrat boise! It's by Mancera and is widely seen as Aventus without the smoke and bit more blackcurrant, although not nearly as well-done.

Bought a 75ml of this. The batch number in the bottle is LT4215R11.

Linear pineapple scent. Longevity is above average, from 8 to 10 hours. Projection however is weak after 2~2.5 hours of wearing it. I can barely smell anything. I don't believe in the nose fatigue sh*t in this case. And I don't know if its a batch problem or the new sprayer with a thinner straw that sprays lesser juice than older bottles, but it seems to be weaker than Aventus was before. Not content with the purchase. Overpriced for what it is.

So after all the hype, I went and gave this a try. I was very disappointed. Don't get me wrong, it's a great fragrance and smells good, but that doesn't warrant the hundreds of dollars you pay for it. Smoke some pineapples over a barbecue and add some vanilla, BAM, Aventus. For that amount of money, you can buy multiple 100ml bottles of a variety of fragrances. Your money is better well spent.

I get the hype... I really don't like it that much, but it's the most masculine scent I have in my collection. I get compliments too, but really I don't think it should be priced that high. If they had changed their policy to designer house, they would gain much more money and popularity. No point of paying 350$ for compliment getter, it's great quality juice, but you can get Armaf CdN intense and you will get similar reactions.

For me Aventus is like an Axe deodorant, only a high quality one. It´s very pleasant, has a big sillage and staying power.

Pineapple, apple and black currant make it a little bit sour, woodsy notes gives it a male background.
This is a fragrance for sport / gym. As I said, a high quality Axe.

I don´t think that it´s a panty dropper.

And I might never fall in love with Aventus, it´s too linear, too expensive and I don´t have any emotions, when I smell Aventus.

What a load of hype. You would think this is the carpenters cup of olfactory experience Indiana Jones picked up. Its not thats great. The fact numerous companies are making clones of it makes you think, that you chose poorly! I saw Aventus copy cat frags for £15 for two on internet auctions. So why not just buy them? It is different if you are shelling out top dollar for a unique smell. This has been emulated and now being sold for 10% of the price so you really need to reconsider shelling out what Creed want. To be honest Creed need to have a good derriere kicking, overpriced, zero customer services and candid affair to people so whilst I hate copy cats if it hurts Creeds pocket power to them!

I can't really give too much extra input on the reviews people have left.

I haven't met anybody who disliked the smell, I smelled this originally in Selfridges in November 2014 visiting Christmas Markets and it was sprayed on a scent card, originally I just put the card to my nose, smelled nice, put card in pocket and forgot about it.

Hours later I'm sat watching a film in the cinema and keep getting this smell and I was hunting like a dog for it and could smell it coming from my parka wrapped around my partner and realised it was the scent card and the infamous Aventus dry down smell that we all adore.

This batch I would love to know about as the scent on the card lasted for easily 2+ weeks through November UK weather ie. wet and windy and I could constantly get whiffs of it through my breast pocket and even passengers on the train could smell it.

I can't get enough of the smell and Creed house just have absolutely ridiculous smells and yes, I'd love the fragrances to be cheaper however I am happy that not everybody can wear it (however snobby that may sound). Green Irish Tweed is no doubt next on my purchases!

I will give a word of warning about Aventus batches. They can and will smell different however most agree that it's nice regardless but I do wish Creed could some how get their scent reliable but can partially understand with the purity and popularity of the fragrance, it can be hard to get the blend perfect every time I'd imagine (or maybe I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt).

My batch number is a renowned good one which I got at Harvey Nichols in Liverpool with one of the last boxes in the backstock (A42C14M01). Quite a well balanced one and not overpowering Pineapple through and through which I've noticed the 15Q01 (any 15 batch actually) smells of.

Fantastic fragrance, will purchase this on my death bed still no doubt but would love Creed to do something about getting this fragrance reliable every time.

I did it. Guilty. Jumped into the deep end of the 120 ml ocean of amazing Aventus goodness. On the bandwagon. Part of the club. Proud member. Good is good is good. Haters gonna hate.

It's just one of those scents that I'm immediately captivated by. Deliciously original without being offensive, very smooth composition, and highest quality ingredients.

Top to bottom a real winner.

Nordstroms whacked me for $380 + tax. OUCH!

The legendary compliment getting and unsolicited sexual favors better start happening soon!

;)

I tried most of the Creed range before, and Aventus was the only one that really lit my fire enough to part with so much cash. I was going to splurge this weekend and buy Clive Christian C or possibly X that I've been testing, but ... well you know the rest.

Really unique and well blended fragrance.

Class in a bottle. A sure compliment getter. Each time when I'm wearing Aventus I get compliments. I can't say that about other popular fragrances. Women love Aventus, guys love it too, all ask what is it called.

LONGEVITY AND PROJECTION. I gotta disagree with some stating that it dies after 2-3 hours or that it lasts only for 6 hours or less.

For me it easily lasts 10-12 hours. Beast mode projection up to 6,5 hours. Can I detect whiffs after 5+ hours? Easily. I do not spray fragrances on my clothes but taking into account how long it lasts on skin, I could argue that it well exceeds 12 hours on clothes easily.

BATCHES: I own a 2015 batch. I've only smelled one other batch in store that was from 2014. No distinctive difference for me. For those who are concerned about batch variations, if it does make that big of a difference for you not to buy a fragrance then just pass it and purchase some other one or go with 2 bottles of quality designer releases.

In conclusion, a very elegant, quality fragrances with great projection and longevity.

P.S. Aventus fills the room and leaves magnificent scent trail. Words by people that complimented me when wearing it.

This one is so hard to understand for longevity and projection. I get really good projection in the opening but I don't feel that it projects much in the dry down. People always say "it's olfactory fatigue" but I spray fragrances on my clothes all the time. Other fragrances are still potent on my used clothes the next day. This one is difficult to smell the next day. I don't think this one is the performance monster people make it out to be. It smells amazing and is my favorite fragrance but it doesn't perform as good as people say it does. All of the strong fragrances I wear, I can smell all day. I don't get wafts, I can smell them ALL DAY. this one I can't smell after 2-3 hours. If I wear DHI, Bleu de Chanel EDT, or A*Men, I smell them constantly all day. I don't believe in olfactory fatigue with this one. Look at it this way... If you can't smell it after a few hours, odds are, it's not there anymore. Wear other potent fragrances and tell me I'm wrong. Wear Black Afgano or A*Men and overspray or even apply it normally. You'll smell them all day. You won't smell Aventus all day. I have received a lot of compliments with this but they've all been in the opening only.

I received my second 4oz flacon today. I know own the 14A01 batch and the the new 15Q01 batch. I don't want to wear two bottles of the same fragrance but I put a spray of each on each hand and smelled them side by side. There are definitely some differences but the average person will never be able to tell the difference. The 15Q01 batch is very fruity and the bottle is new so it has the click on cap and the new sprayer. And believe it or not, it puts out more juice than the standard creed sprayers. The 14A01 batch is smokies and when I compared the two side by side, I smelled mint in this batch. Natural mint like you would find in your backyard. Both batches smell good. I haven't tested the longevity and projection with the 15Q01 batch yet but I'm hoping it's as potent as the 14A01 batch.

Tried a few clones of this such as Armaf iDivo and one of the attars from ebay by Al Sunnah.

Read all the hype and thought i'd try clones first, didn't want to spend a huge sum blindly. Wasn't really overwhelmed but i got compliments.

Couple days ago my missus bought be a 30ml bottle of proper Aventus from selfridges.

Trying the proper stuff it's evident that the opening is more powerful, the top notes are a lot fruitier, but alas they don't seem to last very long. The drydown i can't differentiate from the clones.

Would i buy the proper stuff again?

No, it's all about the drydown which you can get from clones for far less money.

I was holding off on giving my view on Aventus because really, what more can be said? What else can be added?

I wear Aventus at least two or three times a week. I fell in love with it the first time I got a whiff. That smokey pineapple smell is just so magnificent. Another huge plus is that it has great performance and longevity for me.

This is without a doubt my most complimented fragrance. I am constantly asked what it is I'm wearing or "can you write down for me the name of that cologne?" I'm always being told how amazing it smells.

Here's the thing about it though and others have mentioned it as well. Olfactory fatigue is very real with Aventus. You may think the scent has gone faint, but it hasn't. I have gotten compliments 6+ hours after applying it.

Is it pricey? Sure. Is it worth it? To me it absolutely is.

this fragrance is so ridiculously beast! i think people start hating on anything that gets its due praise just because everyone uses, talks about, or has sampled it already. its almost like the same sort of hating chicks have when they see that girl with the same dress she has on.

it seems like as far as any fragrance ive smelled and loved, i'll check the reviews on it and there's just about as much hate on it as there is praise. aventus is what EVERY fragrance should strive to be like. great smell 9/10, great blend 9/10, amazing sillage 10/10, and beast mode longevity 10/10. it gets a 2/10 for that price tho. jesus its expensive!!

Wow.

I used to think it was ridiculous for people to buy Creed Fragrances for so expensive, but then I smelt this one. There is truly nothing out there that is quite like it. I also expected this to be a familiar scent because it is so popular, but I have never smelled this in my life.

The Notes?
Smoky Pineapple, thats all Im gonna say.

Manly, sexy, and incredibly versatile. This one is definitely an attention getter. Would work best for someone with a powerful presence and big personality, but is definitely not limited to that type of person. It could be worn casually at home, definitely on a date or night out, and also could be alright for work. Would do just fine for all ages, but best for ages 18-30 in my opinion. Everyone loves it, but I think men love it a bit more than women.

Uniqueness: 10/10
Longevity: 11/10 (this one lasts me easily over 24 hours)

Finally Aventus is mine! The wait is over.
From first blast I love this! my batch is LT 11 something like that so I don't know if this is a great batch or not.
I care less.
Fruity heaven! Musk and pineapple/apple/bergamot from the opening, leathery smoky woody on the drydown.
The hype is real, very addictive!
I am unsure that the price tag matches though, although I am not upset with my purchase.

Sillage and longevity is great, I can smell it wafting around me and I have sprayed my hand and can whiff that when I desire, I do get the olfactory fatigue though, but others around me can smell it.

That quality musk that a lot of Creed frags have is present an hour later, like that in Himalaya.

I don't feel that this is a projection monster though, and I don't think I am too upset about that, I enjoy this nethertheless.

9/10 overall

BATCH A4215Q01 Dissapointment
after being somewhere at the bottom of my to buy list for almost 2 years i,ve finally got myself a 30ml bottle.
Before i had used 2 samples of this and i,ve enjoyed them.
It simply is a good and safe frag and almost everybody who is not into perfumes will appreciate this.
Non offensive. I will wear this occasionaly when i want something clean and safe.
I,ve got the 2015 Q01. I have to say i,m a little dissapointed.
My samples were a little bit more smoky and the bottle i have now is more fruity. The smoky thing was what i enjoyed most in it. My bottle is a little bit to safe and fruity for my taste.
My samples lasted a really long time. Now it,s just an average performance.
I don,t know if people around would get the difference between the smokier one or the fruitier one but i do.
I wish they amped up the birch in it to give it that slighty more dirty and smoky and above all, more masculin feeling. It,s getting downgraded now.

edit:
I,ve wore this batch 3 times till now and every single time it gave me headache. This is the only one i have that does this to me and i,m really curious to learn what the reason is for that. I,m also getting bored of the scent quickly.

So..being in the crowd of owners:-), acquired finally a bottle from batch 14F01. Really nice fruity, and extremely long lasting with its lighter smokiness, and thats good.

...as owner of many main mainstream designer perfumes from old and reputable houses, and having some niche ones, recently I can say that this is something special, compared to e.g. GIT (which I really like and think that it is the epitome of the so called 'office scents' - alongside of course with Cool Water, Aspen, Chanel Allure, Allure Sport, Bleu, Pour Monsieur, Dior Eau Sauvage, Guerlain Homme etc. what I also wear) form the same house it lasts far more longer on my skin and gives me - I can emphasize what I feel recently, and this is surprise also me - something joy and happiness what I did not felt for long time.
Saying this despite the fact that did broadened my collections with some of gems in the last month like famous and well accepted Guerlain Homme L'Eau Boisée, or new hype-candidate CH Men Privé or the far most hunted YSL M7 Oud Absolu (suggested guys,do not leave that out if you find that).

So chaps, I am happy, must say hype or not hyper train it works...:-)

EDIT: still i think it has an olfactory what is outstanding and extremely good longevity and nice quality of fruitiness of pineapple, apple accords, alongside dust like vibe. Continued to be love with it. I am sure it will stay in my rotation.

(one sidenote to comment to some opinions in any reviews: i am really not happy of having super iso-e overpowering something, for me this is kinda like to be allergic to be on some pollens or so, but despite of any mentioning of that in any review here in the fragrantica , Aventus does not give this feeling to me , you shall trust in this, as i really sharpened out to hate that kind of stuff what is ovetoxicated with super iso-e)

cheers, and try, enjoy, use this juice, as it worth to try, really for sure. :-)

I was pretty turned off by the hype for a while, and Creed's marketing sickens me, so I was behind on trying this. Finally I decided to try it, and this truly is the real deal. Bright, fruity, and a little smoky. That's also a perfect combination for masking or blending with a man's natural body odor. Aventus is quite masculine, despite the fruitiness, so don't let that discourage you from trying it. It's brilliantly well-done. This is an unbelievable compliment-getter. It's also complex enough to be enjoyed by the wearer because, at least in my case, there are elements that you don't immediately notice as separate notes (look at how varied that note lost is!) Just try a sample, and don't worry about batch variations until you've tried it.

After a while of wearing I can smell all the intended notes except for jasmine. The main progression of the scent is a fruity pineapple opening brightened with bergamot and darkened with a bit of smoke. Once the bergamot fades you may be able to smell blackcurrant and apple mixed in with that pineapple and smoke. The pineapple and smoke accord somehow magically sticks around forever. I mean that, I'll catch whiffs of it long after other notes fade. As things progress, the smoke might gain a bit of strength but it never overpowers and is quite pleasant. The "rose" is very gentle and I probably wouldn't have noticed it if I didn't know it was there. As things progress there's a woody quality (Timbersilk) that comes through a bit but it's also fairly soft. I never got much leather out of it but I can see how people would get that impression. The base is hiding way at the bottom of the scent and it's Creed's familiar ambergris with a tiny bit of vanillin to take the sharpness of the scent. It's more there as a sweetener than as an actual note. Even when the fragrance is down to its final whispers and the base is fading, there's that pineapple accord lingering around.

That's not to say there's nothing I wished this fragrance would do differently. For one thing, olfactory fatigue is a real thing. Don't spray it on your neck and upper chest if you want to smell it all day. I'll spray it on my wrists and dab the back of my neck or behind the ears where it won't constantly fill my nostrils. This is one reason why some people say it disappears quickly. There are a lot of stories out there of people saying the scent faded away within two hours...then they got complimented on it ten hours later.

As for batch variations, yes, they exist, but they're not terribly extreme. Originally the fragrance was fairly fruity with a hint of smoke, but between 2011-2013 some batches were made with pretty heavy smoke. That's what started all the batch variation talk. Since 2014,they've been consistent and a bit more in line with the original batches, so it's easy to miss all the major variations if you've only tried the fragrance a few times. That's why I say get a sample and don't worry too much about it; you're unlikely to get anything older than 2014 so you'll be smelling the fragrance as it's meant to smell. All batches have equally great longevity and I believe they all project just about the same amount and they all have the same core smell to them.

Another thing to consider is that the balance is so delicate that any improper storage ruins the scent easily so I'd bet a lot of "bad batches" are perfectly fine batches that have been on the grey market a little too long. Don't use ebay unless you truly know and trust the seller and only buy from sites with great return policies and customer service, or get it from an authorized seller.

TL;DR: this lives up to the hype, don't worry about batches if you haven't tried it, if longevity doesn't seem good it's because your nose grew numb to it, buy from legit sellers.

Yes, Its a Monster.

Its a fragrance like this that makes me want to end my rule of never buying the same fragrance as a close friend or room mate. I have smelled and tried multiple batches and they are all superb, of course the more fruity batches tend to work better for me.

In my opinion this is one of the few creed juices that has a great lasting power. As many have said before me, you may feel that the scent has died when you are really suffering from olfactory fatigue. Yes its still projecting, you have just adapted to it.

Reminds me of a Chanel Allure Homme, but I am most happy when the Pineapple and Rose notes pop. Lasts on me for about seven hours with a four foot projection most times.

BOTTOM LINE: I Recommend it but don't jump into this level of fragrance unless you are ready, you prove nothing by flashing price tags. Though I must always say YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

Thanks for Reading,

What can I say that has never been said before about this fragrance ?

Almost nothing

-It smells great, refined, elegant and sophisticated ("I smell rich people")

-One of the best male fragrances ever created (Pineapple/Leather smokiness)

-Even people who know little about perfume recognize that Aventus is a well crafted scent. ("You smell amazing")

Creed Aventus is an amazing scent that is worth every penny. You will enjoy every single spray. It will conquer you, it will bewitch you and you will love it.
People will ask you what you are wearing.

Take my word. This time, you can believe the hype !!

I love Creed Aventus and have a bottle of the famous Z01 batch. I also have two other bottles that are a little less fruit B01 batch is one.

I recently bought a 4 oz bottle of Demeter Pineapple and blended it with Creed Aventus (2:1 ratio of Aventus to Demeter) and it smells great.

Aventus smells great but has poor projection and maybe medium longivity. It's a real drag since it smells like heaven and costs a small fortune.

And batch variations sucks!

It has passed through my hands recently, one of the new batches of 2015 (LT4215R11) and has lost much of smoky tones, which supposedly gives birch, staying in a much more fruity fragrance.

Longevity has decreased and is rather weak (5-6 hours) and I found the sillage discreet, touching the ridiculous.

So if you have improved, it is both the closure as the vaporizer itself. Now, the closure does not give the feeling of "cheap" that was before (even with comments leakage, some users). The cap is correctly fixed on the bottle (not before) and the vaporizer is somewhat wider and sprayed better.

It is more fruity is not a problem for me, that I love these notes and smoked no, but the performance has seemed so pathetic that sounds like a real tease the price of this fragrance, you have risen markedly, by the way . Round the scam.

It's a shame because I really like the smell. :(
Definitely not recommended. A theft!!!

When I die, I want this sprayed on my corpse so that everybody that comes up to my casket can remember me by this fragrance......

I know that my sound a little over the top, but that's how much I adore this fragrance. Categorically the best male's fragrance I have ever smelled. It completely exceeded the hype it receives. From the moment I sprayed it from a 2ml decant, I was completely blown away. To conserve my 4oz bottle of batch 14K01, I only spray it on Sundays before going to church, and every time I spray it on, I feel like I'm spraying on a cloak of invincibility, power, and confidence. Nobody else in your social circle will smell like you if you wear Aventus. If you don't ever smell another fragrance in your life, do yourself a favor, and get your nose on Aventus.

I’m not very fond of trendy male perfumes, with some exceptions I prefer creations made 20 years ago and older.
Creed Aventus was like a slap on my face to make me reconsider my position that seduced me from the first note to the rest of the pyramid.
Those juicy and ripe fruits made me hungry for more, the flowers specially the rose and jasmine were like a dream and the spices and woods on the base were the most perfect think I have smelled on a modern male fragrance.
While Royal Oud left me totally disappointed Aventus made me fall in love.
Is sexy, really sexy, daring, perfect for day or night, perfect everywhere an unforgettable pleasure.

I don't know anything about batch #'s, nor can I break the scent down scientifically like some of you on this site, but all I can say is AVENTUS IS AN ABSOLUTE PANTY DROPPER! I just bought some last week after research (including this site) and sampling, and I couldn't be happier.

Guys be honest, your intention behind wearing nice cologne is getting women to notice and compliment.
I wore it 2 days after purchasing on a date, and had her telling my at least 7 times how good I smelled. She couldn't get enough the smell.

The fragrance lasted an incredibly long time, and would re appear when I least expected it. Its so fresh and clean, and just made me feel better about myself when wearing it.

I also received 2 more compliments this weekend at friends get together- it will get you noticed.

Buy it!

Batch: A4215Q01

Creed Aventus can either be a treisure or a disgusting fragrance depending on the batch that you get. Some people say that the batch variations exists but you still feel the same DNA. No way! these people haven't smelled enough batches.

I first smelled Aventus on a trip on St Maarten island.It was a glorious juicy pineapple mix with the exact amount of birch that made the perfum not smell like smoke at all but rather like pineapple in a gaseous state. Really interesting and unique sensation. It must have been the so called Z01 batch as this was in 2011 (and I guess they still had the oldest bottles since they didn't sell that many). I ended up not buying it because I decided I already had a pineapple based fragrance (Mont blanc legend intense) which was very inferior but costed much less. I decided to buy Dior homme intense instead since I just began my fragrance journey and didn't have anything in that category.

Last year, I decided to give it another try and bought a sample. It was nothing like the first one I smelled. This one was only smoke with no trace of pineapple. Though, I still appreciated it because it was winter at that time and this "fire" with it's projection was comforting.

I then went in the Creed boutique in Paris in June (3 months ago). I sampled some fragrances. Out of those, I liked Original Vetiver and Aventus better. This Aventus was also smoky without any trace of pineapple, but with an incredible projection that gave it an out of this world Aura. I decided to buy Aventus, even if this batch seemed to induced a little headache, it was a beast of a fragrance. Unfortunately, I didn't pay enough attention and forgot to ask the SA if she could give me a bottle of the same batch as the tester. I was very happy on my way home with the whiffs I was getting from the fragrance. When I came home and reapplied with my bottle this time, I realised it was nothing like the tester: it was lighter, not as projecting, not as smoky which is a thing I actually liked because it wasn't headache inducing like the tester and I later realised that it wasn't also as long lasting as the tester. I was so hesitant to send it back but eventually I decided to keep it because I told myself an headache inducing fragrance is probably unhealthy anyway so I kept this one who is neither impressive in smell nor in projection and longevity.

I haven't worn Aventus a lot until now since, really, the weather this fragrance can suit depends entirely on which batch you get. The first batch I smelled in St Maarten (Z01 I guess) was excellent for summer and I think it could have suited all other seasons as well. But the one I got is plain disgusting in summer.
So, as far as compliments goes, I will be able to give an opinion in winter and spring which are the only seasons I'm intending to wear it in the part of France I live in.

To me, this fragrance is a disappointment, unless you get the batches which smell like what this fragrance smelled like in its very first releases.
I think if the different batch variations of this fragrance were actually sold as flankers, not many people would buy these flankers. A lot of people buy Aventus and hope they will be lucky to get the REAL Aventus. As passionates, we take that risk because we know the Z01 batch was a fragrance of a kind that we want in our collection. Unfortunately, we get garbage instead. Shame to the Creed house.

As for my final ratings, I can't give any to the fragrance as a whole because each batch is a different perfume. The fragrance is too inconsistent. I would give 10/10 on every aspect (including longevity) to the batch I smelt in St maarten (which I think was the Z01) and 4/10 to the batch I currently have (which I bought by mistake because I didn't pay attention to the batch of the tester). I'm not being too hard with the rating I give to the batch that I have but I'm simply realistic: the scent isn't pleasant at all and can't compete with the average designer scent out there. If I didn't buy it in the Creed boutique, I would have questioned it's authenticity.

Creed Aventus is a winning fragrance in my book and one that should be in every man’s collection. It is one for the confident man, as it certainly can make you feel confident, sophisticated and attractive for this is a compliment magnet, and please guys you only need one or two sprays to get noticed, suitable for smart-casual or suit & tie gatherings I’d say.

This fragrance certainly is well crafted, carefully and lovingly throughout all the notes. Top Notes I can pick up black current, pineapple and apple. Middle notes I can pick up patchouli and rose and finally, the bottom notes I can pick up musk and oak moss. A very well blended fragrance as the aroma of Aventus I consider divine

I have a 10ml decant and 20ml left of my 120ml bottle of this, longevity of Aventus (on my skin) is about 20-30+ hours. Yes, it’s true, this gem does linger long after you’ve sprayed it. It projects like a beast too.

Top quality IMO.

Okay I am not a "1 spray" kind of guy. I like my fragrances to be loud and in your face. Therefore, I always apply at least 5 sprays of any fragrance. I went into work yesterday only wearing 1 spray of Aventus because there's a cute girl I always walk passed on my way in. I wanted to smell good but at the same time I didn't want to waste 5 sprays. So I only wore 1. I walked passed her and went behind the counter where I work and as soon as I got behind the counter my coworkers were like "you smell so good" and I was like 10 feet from them and didn't walk passed them. Within the first 5 seconds they could pick it up. I don't know how but it surprised the hell out of me. About 5 hours later, another worker came in and only came 15 feet from me and was like "what's that smell?" And 4 of my coworkers simultaneously said "it's rob" lol so this thing projects. Then today at work the cute girl I always walk passed (who is also a coworker) left work, did her hair and makeup, and then came back to get something from the counter I was working at. This stuff is amazing. So worth the money. Purchasing a second bottle soon.

I just got a 5ml decant of this from a popular youtube fragrance reviewer. I already have Insurrection Pure II the popular clone of Aventus and I enjoy it, but I wanted to see for myself what the real Creed Aventus smelled like. Curiousity got to me. I'm by no means any sort of expert of scents or notes. I'm just a casual collector who likes fragrances.

And I have to say to me this smells exactly like Insurrection Pure II. It's a bit sharper and sorta gave me a headache but to my nose I swear I can't tell the difference. Insurrection seems to be a tad smoother.

I know the hardcore Creed fans or fans of the higher end fragrances will probably disagree, but I think if you wear either noone who smells you, unless they're a fragrance aficionado, would be able to tell the difference.

So if you just wanna say you are wearing Creed and or want the bottle for your collection by all means go for the real thing. But if you want the same scent and can't afford the real thing, go for Insurrection Pure. I don't think any minor nuances there might be between the two are worth the large price difference. And you won''t have to worry about batch numbers either. Just my two cents.

Not a hater, because I do like this scent, I just don't think it lived up to all the hype for me. And you can get the clones for a fraction of the price and get the same scent. Maybe my nose isn't sophisticated enough, but I swear Pure II is the same scent to me.

It’s easy to tell whether a Creed fragrance is great. If it’s discontinued then it was great.

Aventus will never be discontinued while the Creed brand exists. I hope you get what I mean.

Just by looking at the bottle you can tell what a tasteless, crowd-pleaser, dumb fragrance to expect. It’s as boring as the designer perfumes, except that it does not smell synthetic.

Now think about how funny it is that one of the most admired perfumes is exactly the one for which every reviewer has to mention the batch number. Surely, inconsistency yields for quality. Creed has invented the fragrance lottery.

When people look at the history, they tend to be nostalgic and romantic, and they think Napoleon was a hero. Nowadays he would be considered as an aggressor, a dictator and a serial killer. Fortunately, he had been shut down at the end.

Symbolic-wise, Aventus is a perfect creation. It reminds us how big the difference between popularity and quality is.

very good fragrance, i'm not yet so well trained to explain all the notes and such stuff, but this smell amazing to me.

Its smoky and fruity, very pleasant and all occasion scent (with being best suited for moments when you want to make statement) its very unique smell which is one of my biggest things with fragrances, i like to smell different, special.....and like nothing else.

Performance? (projection) and for sure silage absolutely INSANE!!

batch - 14L01

I had some friends of my brother in my yard, and when i enter my yard, one of them asked me what i was wearing, 5h after i apply it. To make this even more impressive, i use 5ml decant, (it was my first encounter with Aventus) only 2 sprays which is less or equal to just 1 spray from full size bottle! he detect my smell (open air ofc) from like 5 meters! and after i asked him really? you can smell me from there? i then came a bit closer to say hello, but intentionally stayed like 2 meters away from him, he told me he gets big whiffs of my scent, as i move.....from all directions LOL, absolutely insane!

Later on, at 3 am, ( i sprayed at 20:00 remember?) my brother asked me what i was wearing, i passed near him like 1 meter away, and he told me this is a fragrance you should be wearing, i left stunned, 7h+ and only 1 spray?

But that's not all, lol. I woke up the next day at 12pm, first time i noticed, it was Aventus, LOL. Absolutely insane performance, and on top of that my mother then detected it 1 meter away from me, this is after 16h!!! also as a final insane moment, my pillow was smelling like it for the next 2 days as well. GG WP Creed.

Olfactory fatigue is a big thing with this scent, please ignore the "i don't smell" moment, you do project like crazy in 90% of the situations, ignore your nose.

Cédrat Boisé has more woodiness than Aventus, Creed has more fruitiness and I think this helps the sillage. I think the Creed would be a better compliment getter. I like both, not sure if I need this kind of fragrance. It hurts me to say that, but if I had to buy, it would be Aventus. This is not the kind of fragrance that I would wear for me but for others, and I think Aventus will do the job better. But I don't need them because I already have Fierce when I need compliments, even I don't love Fierce.

If youre one of the people saying "it's not worth the hype or price" that's because your expectations are through the roof. It's a great fragrance but after hearing that it's made from unicorn tears youre expecting it to blow you away. It's a fragrance remember that. So if you're complaining about it sucking, you were too deep into the hype.

Okay I own the 4A01 batch and just picked it up 2 days ago. I believe this is a more fruity batch. I don't feel like the longevity is very good but it's famously known for nasal fatigue. However the projection is monsterous. One thing about it that I don't like is the sprayer. It sprays an amazing amount of juice however it doesn't always work correctly. Sometimes it just won't spray but when it does it's amazing. This one draws attention in a very good way. The fruitiness attracts attention and makes people want to come closer. I think it's the hint of smokiness mixed with the pineapple that interests people. Yes it's safe but it hasnt really been done before. Anyways after I got home from work I payed down on the couch 2 feet from someone and asked if they could smell it and they said yeah that it smelled good.

Projection: 10/10
Longevity: who knows
Sillage: 10/10
Smell/ 10/10 it smells weird on first impression but it's smells good

I had a try on this elegant perfume and despite the price ,it was totally satisfying. Fresh opening and fresh ending. I think it opens with citrus scent, mostly apple and pineapple. It dries down slowly within at least 3 to 4 hours with magnificent projection. I can claim that It is about your arm length. Afterward the scent of middle and base notes appears. I can smell fresh floral scent mixed with musk and ambergris significantly. This is the time that the silage is near to skin. It doesn't disappear at least for 2 to 3 hours. Therefore I can say the longevity is at least 5 to 7 hours, however the trace of the scent stays on your skin more than it. Let me say for 3 hours more, but it is not significant.
I consider it is a summary and somehow spring frag and more diurnal than nocturnal. The good point is it is wearable for all occasions.
This is the perfume that never makes u feel boring. Every time that u smell it, u feel comfortable and satisfied. The point is how much do u you want to spend on a perfume? I think the price is the matter that does not satisfy u. For sure perfumes buff would do. This is a professional and subtle perfume which u never regret buying it. Thumbs up for CREED AVENTUS. Lovely but expensive.

Here is the update after buying and wearing Aventus I disregard my mixed review I wrote earlier. I came to this conclusion.

Aventus is in one word: ***EMPEROR***

big question WHY?

1) Outstanding performance:

But there are many that performs well, kings like Pure Malt, Fahrenheit, Bleu de Chanel, but they will seat in the corner When Emperor Aventus enters the room, kings will be all shaky and fearful, ladies will be on their knees with the powerful strong confident masculine aroma.

2) Smell:

It smells amazing, tropical, fruity, leathery, smoky, semi sweet, hint of floral, musky you name it. it has never been balanced to perfection before Aventus, I can not think of anything more masculine than this, but it is still subtle, made make one feel good, and confident in any given time.

3) Versatility:

So far in my fragrance journey, nothing came across as versatile as Aventus to me yet, Aventus will sail you through in any given situation at any time.

4) Quality:

True Niche quality that is easily wearable, unlike other niche houses that makes quality perfume that is hardly wearable. Creed is way to go, if you are looking to impress people around you as well as perfume snobs. I find it is ridiculous to smell like leather shoes in the name of leather. Quality, transition on the smell is indeed is art of beauty, but if that only impresses perfume snobs and not people around me just like me and you, I do not care about niche houses, but Creed aims for quality by ensuring the get the best quality ingredients to make simplistic perfumes yet with artistic beauty which can be liked by both snobs and mass. WIN WIN!

5) Price:

Aventus is not overpriced for what it is: even if it is a million pounds, I will still have a decant for a special day.

I finally got me a 50 ml decant and i really love it.
First of all al little story,I told my girlfriend i finally ordered a decant of it and that it's a really great fragrance.
When she arrived, she asked if i already got my package and i said, "Yes, it finally arrived, you can smell it later after I took a shower, I put on a cheap frag earlier and dont want to ruin the aventus. "
She answered "Ok, but the one you're wearing is a cheap one? What is it, it smells really nice, I like it a lot!"
Of course she didn't know, I was already wearing Aventus and I only wanted her true opinion on it.

So, what do I think of it:

After spraying, it starts with this woody, fresh and a bit smokey pinapple note.
I think the freshness comes from the Black Currant and the Bergamotte but I don't really smell them as own notes.
Then the pineapple fades into the Birch wood, that will stay there the whole experience.
Now the musk and the oak moss come in to round it up.

I dont really smell the other notes as own notes, but to me it's an overall nice and round frag, with great development and you really can smell the qualitiy this has.

Overall, this smell elegant, manly, strong, but also a bit playful, dreamy, adventurous.
You can wear this to a job interview as well as a date.

Scent: 9,5/10
Longivity: 10/10 (12 hours minimum)
Projection: 9/10

Aventus. The Emperor of Summer. Napoleon in vacation.

Pineapple. Ash. Birch wood. some people call it smokey pineapple, others call it a fruity Ashtray. I see where they all coming from however I have a more accurate image: You get a pineapple, you place it on some birch wood, then you set fire. you get this smell of burning wood and fruits. it's interesting though that the whiffs you get may vary as if those three elements are really burning; sometime you get more pineapple, other times the burning wood strikes. all in harmony.

Not the best smell in the world but no doubt the best fragrance in the world. Monster longevity, sillage, and projection ( without being heavy) even when it fades out and you can't feel it anymore , it surprises you and returns back again and you still can get some whiffs. I got compliments 15+ after I applied it.

I'm not a big fan of the smell itself, I just like it, however because of it's Performance I mentioned, ultimate versatility, and masculinity it gets overall the title of the most solid fragrance ever made and this put it among my 6 most favourite fragrances of all time. Numbers up there in Fragrantica tells you something as well.

This gives you a conclusion that Aventus haters are solely evaluating it from a smell perspective. which is only 7.5/10 so that's why they can't understand the hype. the smell is just very good but not excellent but it gets full mark in anything else a fragrance need.

I see it as only a hot weather fragrance, as heat help it to radiate the pineapple and the fruity nuances it has, while during winter the Ash and woods take over. two to three sprays in the summer are enough to get you noticed at least 10 hours.


The conception of this Fragrance is inspired by the dramatic life of Napoleon Bonaparte and it symbolises his power, endurance and reflects elements from his life of war, peace and love; Blackcurrant from Corsica – the birthplace of Bonaparte, Calville Blanc apples from France, Ambergris, symbolising the naval reach of Napoléon’s army, Pineapple, his favourite food. Birch wood bark, from Louisiana (ruled by France at that time in history).

I can say that the role Napoleon played in history is now played by Aventus in perfumery, Masculine, Powerful, Enduring, Ambitious, successful, and prestigious. it ends victorious though unlike Bonaparte's tragic end.

Just bought it from local reseller. 75ml. Got 2015 batch with p02 in the last.
Its really smells like apple and pineapple at the opening which is i love it. The dry down is a bit smokey but still have apple smells on it.
Awesome projection and easy 12 hours longevity on my skin!
Its smell different if you spray it on your clothes better to spray it on the skin.

Scent : 9/10
Projection : 10/10
Longevity 10/10

Recently acquired a 30ml bottle of this because I wanted to try it out since it was so popular! My bottle is from the M01 batch, and I have to say, it deserves all the hype it gets! Clean, fresh, citrusy, masculine, outdoorsy, easy to use...what more could a man want? I'm definitely going to get a much bigger bottle of this soon because it's now my signature scent.

Scent: 9/10 really good, but not the best
Projection: 8/10 arms length at least
Longevity: haven't tested it properly, and I don't trust my nose on this one because of its notoriety for causing olfactory fatigue so I will give a proper rating when I do

Overall, very good fragrance if you're looking to purchase an all round, easy to use scent that does the job for anything. Of course, like the reviewers below, there are better fragrances for each occasion...but if you want to own only one, buy this!

UPDATE: Longevity is amazing on this...easily at least 12+ hours!!! Worth every penny in my opinion..

my most complimented fragrance.
fits every occation, all year. everyday all day.

if you only need one fragrance, then this is it.

but the problem comes if you got soem fragrance experiance.
aventus is 9/10 for every occation, while there are always a fragrance thats better for that single occation.

if you think its better to own just 1 fragrance and be 9/10 all the time, or have 30 fragrances and putting some effort into choosing whats best and be a 10/10 for every occation, then thats up to you.

i think that may be why its both hyped and boring people at the same time.

its the best overall fragrance ive smelt, but variation feels better.

To me this is a MASTERPIECE! First niche scent that I smelled is this one (and bought). It opens with something fresh (bergamot), little animalic (musk), little sweet (apple). After I spray Aventus, I CAN SEE myself in a forest of pines (not pineapples, just pines), in the mountains, just don't know why, probably because of the oakmoss. Ok, now the others opinion: UNIQUE, fruitty, beautiful, sophisticated, smokey, extravagant, MASTERPIECE! All the girls in the office are used to my fragrances. They like all my frags, but they're not complimenting me anymore. First time I wore Aventus at the office, from the moment I passed the office's door, all colleagues said "WOW, what is this beautiful scent ???" They were all wet, literally. Longevity is very good, projection very good, but your nose will get used to it and you'll think is gone (after 1 hour) so I did a experiment with a friend, I gave him Aventus and after 6-7 hours the projection was still pretty good on him. I was like "Something smells good in here... oh wait, it smells like me... you wear aventus" and he said to me "you forgot that I wear your perfume?" Try ON SKIN before you buy (you might don't like the musk part).


10/10 MASTERPIECE!

Smells nice? - Yes
Mainstream appeal? - Yes
Worth the hype? - Yes And/Or Probably not.

Enough has been written about it already.
But, I'll just throw in my 2 cents anyway.

Olfactory fatigue is a big issue with Aventus.
In order to test performance, its better to spray on your wrist or arms, 1-2 sprays. Anything more, can cause olfactory fatigue and prevent you from testing its longevity properly.

Whether I can smell it on me or not (somedays I can, somedays I can't), others definitely smell it on me.
It may feel like it's gone and vanished within an hour or two, but that could very well be a common case of olfactory fatigue - so try out the wrist application method before making a final decision about its performance.

As for me, I'm still trying to figure out which application method works best for me, but I just wanted to share some of my thoughts with you all.

If you have only smelled this once, then try it again...

I had a sample of this and thought it was just a nice, generic citrus / woody scent... Oh boy was I wrong.

I bought a 20ml decant and tried it for the second time..SIMPLY BLISS... I couldn't believe a smell could bring such pleasure until I wore this for a second time & the performance was outstanding.. Watch out for Olfactory Fatigue though... this is a nightmare for disappearing to your nose only while others can smell it fine >:/

(This was the Z01 Batch, I have tried the C01 batch but I don't know what it was but the Z01 felt much fresher on the opening, maybe more pineapple?)

An amazing balance of Fruit and woods, it's like a youthful playful scent & a more classy, manly one combined, Versatile as F**K!

I think it's a masterpiece! I wouldn't pay retail though... you can get decants of this for WAY cheaper than buying it from the stores... JS :)


A Perfect, Unmatched 10/10 - For me anyway ;)

Tart black currents and the citrusy sweetness of pineapple infused into a smokey birchwood, yummy...a very summery scent. The sharpness of the birch is the only thing making this smell a little more masculine than not, but overall it's kind of a unisex fragrance. As a woman, I think I'd actually rather smell this one on me than on a man.
UPDATE: An hour later after a lengthy dry down Aventus does become masculine as the musk, birch and oakmoss come to the forefront with a BBQ smokiness. It has now become too masculine for me to wear. It's not an androgynous scent but rather it's manly, confident and sexy.

Disgusting cheap italian fragrance. Creed is a fake brand created in Italy (in Milan) in the 80's, no kings and queens, only bullshit! And you buy lies, no natural ingredients, no history... And Olivier Creed is not the owner of the brand!

Must agree with the folks who say that this is a bit over-hyped. That's not to say that it's not good or isn't a pleasant scent, but it's just a bit...standard. It does however, stay true to what is mentioned in the notes: sweet, a bit fruity, with a musky dry-down. For mine, the pineapple and green apple are apparent immediately. The pineapple is fleeting and the fruitiness that remains is from the currant and the apple. From there, it develops into a very unimaginative, modern men's scent, not too masculine, and maintaining the sweet musk thanks to the plethora of ingredients (think Gucci Pour Homme II or F by Ferragamo). The vanilla and oak moss aren't there as much as I would like (the oak moss especially is very hard to detect), just the musk and fruit are what remain at the end. Overall, quite disappointing considering the House and its reputation.

Another gripe on this is the packaging. Bloody hell Creed! You've been making fragrances for ages and you can't even be consistent and fussed about your packaging! I know the juice is the most important thing but we're paying for the packaging too cos obviously that's included in the price. We're not paying a fortune for such fragrance just to get a not perfect presentation. That embossed crest bit on my box has some parts that aren't coated perfectly in black. The wrap-around leather-like sticker on my bottle isn't perfectly stuck on the sides and there's a tiny air bubble in the back bit. Ive seen a young bloke reviewer from the UK on youtube where he was showing his bottle on his review, and i couldn't help but notice the tiny air bubbles on the back sticker of his and he bought it from a reputable boutique in UK cos it had the legit Creed paperbag that came along with it. I mean, damn Creed! We're paying heaps of money and we expect a pristine presentation. Perfect and flawless presentation packaging are that of Tom Ford's, Xerjoff's, Amouage's, Bond No9's, just to name a few. We get what we pay for on those fragrances as a whole, but Creeds, bloody hell.

Haven't tried YSL m7 yet Bob Marley, but it's been compared to TF's oud wood. Just want to share a story of my testing/wearing of Aventus. Wore it to work, and 2 lady workmates of mine didn't compliment me or say anything really but i could see them scratching their noses. Lol. My point here is you could get compliments out of this but it could be offensive to some people too. It was one spray on my arm at the time. I can see the love for this frag by most people and i respect that. I like the frag but i don't love it. Is it bottle worthy? Yes and No. Im a collector and enjoy fragrances so i dont mind adding this to my collection. To the average noses and practical consumers, this will just be another citrusy-masculine scent.

This is the best men's fragrance IMOP- waited a long time to pull the trigger- even ordered sample vials but I'm very happy with the investment. Top notes might be overwhelming for some so a little care is required in its use [read: do not use like a Gillette Deo] but after the initial power notes it settles down to a more smooth and attractive tone.

It's long lasting without being overpowering and most important, it is distinctive and 'special'.

Just to add on here. This is definitely a masculine scent. Longevity and projection is beast on me. I only sprayed one on my arm and i could smell myself to the point that it was already stinging my nostrils lol
just to give you an idea of its strength, this is like Ck escape, it smells nice but can sting your nose in the long run. They're not the same cos the other one is synthetic and aventus smells natural but you guys get the point of the strength and potency comparison. If you're not a collector you can do fine without aventus in your life.

I have gone through 3 bottles of the 4 oz flask of Aventus since 2010. Lets just say that I like it alot and I will continue to wear this until the day I die. It is one of my signature scents that gives me the most compliments because it is people pleasing versatile and the projection and longevity is amazing. I describe it as a fresh blast of pineapple with some apple and woods in the backround and masculine smokiness and i get also a leather vibe as well. Every man should have this in his collection. 10/10

Here is my honest take on this frag, and to help the would be buyers of this. Cos i was curious and bought myself a bottle just to see what the fuss was all about. I dont want to step over the creed fanboys or the fan of this frag but this frag is good but not awesome or the holy grail of fragrances. See what others were saying about the pineapple and smokiness and what they're trying to describe arent really true, at least on my skin and nose. I dont get the natural pineapple smell like what others were describing. I got it the first time i sprayed it but it only lasted 1 to 2 seconds then immediately the whole scent as a whole came up. The smokiness that others described isnt a smell of a smoke, if they meant a note of masculinity or woodsiness then im guessing thats what theyre trying to say. You wont get pineapple here unless you really dig your nose on your skin and find it (but people around you normally wouldnot do that wont they? Lol) i grew up in the Philippines and there's a tropical fruit there called lanzones. When you open that small fruit and break the skin, you will get a sharp citrusy semi sweet aroma and This is what itAventus reminds me of plus some woods added in. Overall this is a nice and pleasing scent but not something that would wow you. If you have money to spend and if you're a collector like myself then go for it but if you're just looking for a fragrance that would make you smell good, there are other cheaper alternatives out there. Im sorry Aventus fans but it didnt take me to the moon just as much as Tom Ford prive blends did on me. Like i said aventus is ok and smells pleasing but this not the best. Sorry mates.

Got a 5ml sample yesterday from the decantShop. This on my skin smells different than on fabric. On my skin, the scent takes a dark turn, it is citrus but a bit spicy and smokey, and longevity and projection is not good. I must say, I wasn't impressed. On clothing however, the scent is light and heavenly, absolutely gorgeous, and lasts longer. It's got that "je-ne-se-quoi" aspect to it that makes my knees weak! Divine! I don't even think it's the notes! If you catch whiffs of it, it will get into your nostrils and do circles inside tingling your olfactory senses. I haven't yet tried the imitations they say are similar to Aventus but I don't expect them to have the same magic even if they get the notes right. As they say, "you might have the moves but not the touch!"

Update
I got a decant of a u02 (smoky) batch to compare it to my sample and I must say, I like the fruity version better. The good news is, the smoke is not predominant when smelled from a distance.

This is without doubt an absolute compliment getter. Girls love it beyond belief and I must agree if I was a girl my legs would buckle too probably.
My main issue as with a lot of people is price. I have a 30 ml decant of this and will stop there I think.
If you want a nearly frag which for me on my first wearing got me 4 compliments from ladies ..no lie.... and is an absolutely wonderful fragrance and 90 % aventus just without the smokiness then that is ADNAN B NOIR. ..END OF!!

it is all said in previous reviews about composition. about the batch number i dont know which one i got, so thats that.

Iconic fragrance, but avoid batch number 15N01. Lasts about 1 hour before turning into a meagre skin scent, even considering the fact that Aventus induces olfactory fatigue. I was lucky enough to get a refund on my 15N01, but for those of you thinking of buying this in the near future, it'd be a good idea to check the batch number beforehand!

The last one I bought had a delicious pinapple - smokey accord, while the new one is much more smokeyer, wich I don't really like... So the batch thing is true I guess.. I feel kind of ripped of, paying much money and never knowing if you have a good batch...And I don't want to check everytime the Internet for the batch evolutions..

Aventus is a nice scent. Perhaps a bit overrated, but very nice nonetheless. Great compliment getter. I don't obsess over batches. Mine is fine.

I got the 120 ml for about $200 from a major department store. I recommend that you only purchase any fragrance from an official retailer (department store, directly from vendor, boutique etc). I am not in the business of receiving fakes,.

For the life of me, I don't know why this fragrance gets so much attention. It goes on smelling of pineapple - and if you're lucky you also get a smoke note. I did with a previous sample but I didn't with the present sample. I guess this is what's at the heart of the whole Aventus batch variation controversy.

At any rate, on me it dries down to a boring sweet/fruity thing. Also, it doesn't last. And it doesn't seem to project.

I'm convinced, when it comes to nude emperors, this is the one with its junk hanging out.

As a woman with an opinion ?

Aventus IS one helluva GREAT men's fragrance ! OHMAGAD.

The first time I was exposed to it, I didn't think so much about it.
Then when I took a sample home with a little sample of GIT, I sprayed a little bit of Aventus on my linens and I was going back in my room all day...

The smell is addicting... Then every time I would get stuck in traffic, I would bring out the bottle from my purse and sniff the sprayer and it gives me a feeling that gets me so excited, I have to look sideways if anyone was watching.

All my men friends who I sampled this fragrance to ended up purchasing a bottle. Never mind the price. It is all about smelling nice and great.

Aventus is long-lasting.

On the outside looking in, Aventus seems like the best fragrance, based on all the hype and reviews. Despite all the numerous batch variations, you're still compelled to get your hands on this cologne. However, once I bought it, it didn't live up to all the hype. Whats more frustrating about this fragrance is that there's no definite way to know if your experience was the same as other reviewers, due to all the batch differences. I did get a very juicy and natural pineapple, with campfire smoke, and light woods that are pleasant, but slightly too mature. While some will say differences between them all are slight, and mostly detectible by trained noses, there's still a inbalance between quality, and brand of the product. With all of this going on, incorporate the price tag, and I don't feel it's worth it. Not because of the high price solely, but for that much I better be getting a bottle that says panty dropper as an active ingredient. Inoffensive cologne though, professional would be an understatement.

I definitely confirm that there are batch variation. As many said, it's a shame ! I like to be sure the perfume I will buy will be the same as the perfume I liked. And those batch variations seems to be huge in some cases. Hopefully, the new bottle I bought is better than the previous one, but noticeably different ! But I repeat that's a shame from Creed...

However, my new batch is a monster ! The most complimented fragrance I had !

My friend, in my country the woman are more reserved and not as outspoken as in some western countries but hey who cares cause at the end of the day what matters most is you know that you smell good right :)


That aside my review is based on my full bottle (14F01) and sample vial (14L01).
The longevity of the full bottle is monstrous 10 hours any given time but its much more smoky, the vial is much sweeter cause of the pineapple but longevity varies, sometimes 6 sometimes 8. Overall i'd say its a mighty fine perfume, if i were a cat this would be catnip for me lol

Rewrite: Who needs my review, right? I started using this last year, and I bought the bottles long before that. Don't grab a fake, okay? I don't know if any fakes are floating around or not, there are many informations available for the lot numbers, that's as far as I can go for my due diligence. It has an awesome quality scent, if you like the smell, you know you got what you paid for. That being said, would it be perceived as that expensive stuff? Probably not. Forget you're wearing Aventus, the king of men's cologne!! And you'd be a happier man. And I remember from an old review that said a girl fell in love with the scent, let me just say, when you review this, tone it down if you can, ppl are watching! Thanks. :)

I really can't say anything that hasn't already been well said. . ..so I'll just offer my opinion. ..

I feel like the wildly different batch qualities is a really good reflection of how fresh, volatile and REAL the ingredients are for this. As in nature, you can't always predict how grown things will taste, look or smell.

The largest note that I notice, and stays, is the awesome pineapple with an underlying smoky-leather feel. It's a very crisp fragrance, that's what i like most about it, and honestly that's what I personally think draws the attention and for some, the compliments.

Absolutely wonderful. A man's man scent. 10/10 for me, totally bewildered and enthralled by this stuff. Can't stop smelling my wrist!!!

Aventus is the wild younger brother of Green Irish Tweed. GIT is the buttoned up older brother that is perfectly fitted with a business suit. Aventus is what you wear to a backyard cookout or just hanging out. It is perfectly smoked pineapple musky goodness.

aventus deo:
the container is pure white with a sticker on the back with the logo "aventus". obviously all deodorants shares the same white container with the silver cup. the stick inside is also white. the gel is silky and smooth. slides on the arm pit even, if it's hairy, like cotton. one slide is enough. when you re sweating a cream comes out that not stains the clothes. it's really effective. lasts all day even after work out. and of course smells like the parfume but more faint. best deo ever.

aventus soap:
nice creamy soap that produces light foam and smells soooo nice. the soap is better than the shower gel. smells more and cleans better. the combination of deo, soap and one apply of of the parfume are what you need to totally smell aventus on your neck and clothes all day.

both deo and soap are rather expensive but are perfect for not mixing different parfume, shower soap and deo, with the Creeds way. discrete and classy.

My review is based on a sample of L01 and a bottle of P02.

Are there batch inconsistency? Yes, but only for first few minutes, and the differences are not dramatic.

It starts with smoky pineapple, which last for few minutes and become dry woody mossy scent. It remains as this woody mossy scent for few hours till it gradually disappears from my skin.

Many people would find the scent pleasant and versatile. But, if you don’t like birch (woody) note, you might not like the scent.

Because it is not cheap, if you are considering to get a bottle of it, I personally recommend to try it first.

Is it worth the hype? Yes, it seems many people really love this scent. It however does not mean everyone loves it.

Is it worth the price? This would be subjective. I can see, for many, the price does not justify the value.

**EDIT: Just bought an Aventus to really see how it works on my skin and compliment factor. and will update soon. **

Hope I will not offend anybody who loves or hates Aventus, but I am only going to share my thoughts on this.. So I have tried this on, and I thought it is a lovely smell, so many others are, it is not something I would instantly fall in love. So why I should get Aventus? As it is believed to get enormous amount compliments, and that is a good sign of a great cologne, if it's not good, people would not be bothered to tell you smell great. SO I believe it's a great scent. But what inconsistent and unacceptable is this, "different batches excuse". I do not consider myself a fragrance expert but I have been wearing cologne since school days(typically splashing dad's after shave). So I do understand all this reformulation business, and so on.. fragrance may very, but from the House of Creed, which is supposedly one of the best perfumery I find it highly disappointing. Although Creed's colognes are generally fresh, and high quality, no doubt about that, and there are people truly adore and swear by Aventus, but sorry to say I will not agree that Aventus is something like and emperor of all fragrance. There are people who has 100s of fragrance including niche and they find Azzaro Chrome is one of their absolute favourite, so I completely understand people who love Aventus for the smell, or uniqueness, but if you tend to be wanting Aventus just for all these talks, and and experience people had with it, test yourself first, not once but few times and then follow your instinct.

Now good bit about Aventus, well it's a project monster, unlike other project monster are generally spicy or sweet, and fresh cologne either too sharp or close to skin, and lack of longevity. But Aventus is a quality cologne that have the right balance, and incredibly long lasting, head turner, and project, and it has strong silage, you literally leave your scent trail even after you leave the space. And if you compare Aventus with Creed's other cologne, they are nicer smelling than Aventus IMHO, but Aventus is more masculine, and that makes it one of the best fresh cologne out there.

It is pricey but when you purchase a product, especially if that is in your hobbies, do not consider price tag reflect your decision, but follow your passion, if you love this go for it.

** That's my take on Aventus **

Can the entirety of the fragrance community be wrong when they almost universally proclaim a scent a masterpiece? Of course they can. But with Aventus, they are not. I purchased a decant last year, and I don't think I ever wore it without getting at least one compliment. So I finally purchased a full bottle. I don't think there is anything else on the market similar to it. Yes, it has a fruity, smoky scent that in itself is exquisite. But for me, it's the whole rather than the parts that make the fragrance. It reminds me of Platinum Egoiste, not in the notes but in the general impression. It reeks of confidence. Yes, it's expensive, but it's worth every penny. And if you're a serious collector, it's a must own. They hype is real, and it's true.

To be honest it took me quite a long time to grow to this one, it wasn't a love at sight fragrance. Now it is my number one fragrance by a mile and is the only niche fragrance I can think of worthy of the huge price tag. Aventus smells great, performs well, gets compliments left right and center and is extremely versatile. Creed Aventus, best fragrance in the world!

Another miss, although from the talk of inconsistent batches that might change. With what I have (a decant) it is just pineapple, nothing else. It is a very pleasant scent in itself, I like the smell of pineapples, but not on me. I just don't see the appeal of smelling like a piece of fruit. Oh well, saves me some money, I guess.

This one is worth the hype. Best stuff out there. I can't really say anything that hasn't already been said, except I agree. Its awesome stuff. Unfortunately, its way to expensive. Is any fragrance worth this cost. No. Not for me. Lots of awesome fragrances for under 100 bucks, so I wouldn't ever justify buying an entire bottle of this stuff. Its nice to have a decent size decant for some special occasions though. Oh yeah, and don't get any of the dupes. This stuff is EDP strength for a reason. That pineapple note needs some major concentration to last, that's why this is EDP and the pineapple note lasts. If you find a worthy dupe at EDP strength, it may be worth it, but all the EDT strength dupes i've tried only last for a meager amount of time. This stuff is hard to replicate for that very reason I think. There isn't anything I've found that does the job this does with the same notes............Special occasion scent.

aventus shower gel.
well I got this just a few days before as a gift. the person who gave it to me knew that I use aventus perfume. first surprise: the cup shown in creeds site is not that but a simple flipping white cup. the product was purchased on line from a famous German site. (I'm mentioning this to avoid maybe fake products from eBay). the price was 50 euro instead of 70 pounds in Creeds webstore. I was very curious to use this. the composition is thick but weak. no foam at all. I had to apply again and again. the scent is the well known aventus, more fruity maybe.
but..... even I was hopping to experience the most luxurious shower in the world nothing like that happened. it's not even a typical shower gel. produces no foam at all, smells very lightly and ... that's all. well ok it cleans the body...
for the most expensive shower gel in the world this one is the most disappointing. I used many other design shower gels, costing about 20 euro, with nice rich foam and hydrating effect and mostly to fill the bathroom with their smell. Also my clothes smell nice.
don't buy this creeds shower gel. it's way too expensive. I understand that Creed is a high end company but waste of money have limits.

So I'm currently wearing this one and usually I try to wait till the end of it to give a thorough review of it but had to give my two cents now.

When I first wore it, initially, the picture I got was a barber shop. A Barber shop set in like the 1920's, the days of the fedora hats and pin stripe suits.

I do not know why but that is the image I got when smelling this.

It has this pineapple, talc mix to it, fresh like again, you've just gotten a haircut but because of this unique mix, it doesn't overdue it on the barbershop talc smell.

This is a fresh, polished, clean scent that is definitely a spring/summertime smell to it, for a person who wants to smell like they look... rich, not a snobby rich but a nice rich :D

Definitely one to check out, I enjoy this one, not just because of the smell, but because of it's uniqueness and the picture it painted for me when smelling this.

Awesome scent,leaves a trail,lingers, it sticks to people (when kissing) and pleasant.Sprayed it, went to the toilet, gf went to toilet when i left, scent stayed all over. 9/10, unless you guys help me out with my query!
I need some help, i bought a almost extinct batch of creed here in oman, the c01 batch..it is awesome, my dad fell in love with it, started using it. so i decided to go to dubai and buy the M01 batch (they are selling this everywhere, duty free and stuff). Even the dubai mall staff suggested it was the best batch seller, bought it.. smells more smokey…but fabulous!…i just wanna know if anyone out there has this latest batch and what do they think about it over all….please help a guy out! The c01 batch lasted quite a long time, the m01 batch maybe not as much in my opinion unless olfactory fatigue was in the works..just need some info.

Just bought another bottle yesterday and although I do like this scent a lot, for me it's not to die for. However, I enjoy it because I love the feedback and wow factor I get from it randomly, especially the compliments. Sometimes I can see a look in a persons face when they know they smell something amazing, then pause and finally garner up the balls to ask, "wow what are you wearing". So for me, it's a lovely scent but I kno when I wear it, it's a win-win situation.

I remebered when i was about to buy a fragrance from a perfume shop and i was looking for a fresh scent that will be my signature scent. I have bleu de chanel, versace pour homme, giorgio armani essenzaand ysl l'homme libre. Im used to all these fresh scent and they are all great . Thought everything fresh scent wouldn't surprise me already. Only 2 fresh scent amazed me to almost disbelief. Prada infusion d'homme shocked me and creed aventus. They both are the best and both of them have excellent sillage, projection and longevity. The best scent ever these two. :)

.....ok my friends. you were right. there are different batches indeed. I tried many samples and they are all different. I noticed two main types. the one with the more fruity and the other one with the more smokey direction. tested em for weeks now. although the differences are only in the opening. after 10 minutes the projection is the same. 2 sprays are enough for a whole day. whatever you are smelling (pineapple or smoke or apple) other people smell soap, cleanliness, fresh washed linen and finally a sexy man.

verdict:
aventus is a masterpiece. masculine and classy. women adore it. from time to time female colleagues turn again and again to my neck to smell me.

The pineapple and musk in this fragrance is to die for indeed. However, the birch is a little off-putting. But even that is not a problem. The biggest problem is, that after 10-20 minutes I can't notice the fragrance anymore. For the rest of the day the fragrance is unknown for my nose. I wan't to enjoy i my self, its not intended for the past by walkers! I even noticed that by the end of the day i have breathing trouble do this this fragrance. It must be some of the new aroma chemicals they have used. I even tried two different bottles, so i really had to let this creation pass.

This fragrance is very tricky for me.
First I like the smell:smokey pineapple, very long logevity and huge projection even I can't smell it because Aventus is one those fragrances of nose fatigue. I would give it a B+ but to be honest ...this is not of what I would wear most of the time.
Glad that I sampled it before!

I didn't know how to feel when I got this for my birthday. I'd have been happier with a new mobile.

Anyway, I know the cost of production for a single bottle of this would not run north of $100. Not even $50. People are so gullible. *sigh* I like it just fine, it's worth having. But not at those exorbitant prices!! I would NEVER pay $200 for it.

"There once was a scent called Aventus,
whose plaudits were truly momentous.

The rich and elite fell over their feet
to praise it in glowing consensus.

So keen was my nose to assess this,
I liberally sprayed it on both wrists.

Alas, what a shame, it smelled rather quite plain;
A boring, pretentious non-eventus."

ヽ༼ຈل͜ຈ༽ノ


Joking aside, "Aventus" really doesn't live up to the hype. I've smelled hundreds of perfumes in the last few years, from mall brands to some very exclusive and absurdly priced niche ones and even natural vegan perfumes. In that time I've come across scents that are so rich, so multi-dimensional, so full of texture they have literally reinvented the way I smell and judge perfume. "Aventus" is not one of those scents. In fact, smelling it today was like taking a few steps back in my perfume education; This is something I would have liked to have worn when I was a teenager, but now I find it too generic.

There are hundreds of perfumes just like Aventus. Walk behind a well-dressed man on the street and you will usually find yourself in a trail of transparent, ozonic woodiness with a hint of fruits, and that's exactly what Aventus smells like. Tangy, sweet fruit and synthetic wood that ends up smelling predictably of dusty pencil shavings after a few hours. Pleasant enough, fresh, inoffensive, but worthy of the insane price tag? Worthy of the mass gushing appraisal? In my opinion, no.

I try to avoid calling a perfume "over-rated" but in this instance it is quite apt.

A quick comparison of Aventus and it's "clones" worth mentioning that I've gotten around to smelling.

Creed Aventus ($240-350 USD for a 4oz spray bottle):
What I like: QUALITY stuff, amazing scent, refined smokiness, and VERSATILE as heck.
The bad: Price-point :(((

Afnan Supremacy Silver (Approx. $80 USD on eBay):
After the first 5 minutes of intense alcohol, it is BY FAR the closest thing you will find scent wise to Aventus.

Lomani AB Silver ($20 USD):
A REALLY nice fruity and smoky summer frag. Several nuances in the dry down DO remind me of Aventus from time to time. I really like this one. I will be purchasing a second bottle soon.

Glenn Perri Unpredictable Adventure ($17 USD) :
A stale yet sweet vanilla with a thick and heavy ashy note. The ashy note does remind me of that of Aventus but without the quality. A distasteful mess. PASS!

Insurrection Pure ($25 USD): Smells like Aventus but lacks the quality, vibrancy and fruitiness that makes Creed Aventus good. Stale and lifeless to my nose (though a great crowd pleaser).


Projection:
Lomani < Glenn Perri < Insurrection Pure < Aventus < Afnan Supremacy

Longevity:
Glenn Perri < Lomani < Insurrection pure < Aventus < Afnan Supremacy

Smell/Quality of scent:
Glenn Perri < Insurrection Pure < Afnan Supremacy < Lomani < Aventus

Compliments (Not the name of the game but they sure don't hurt!):
Glenn Perri < Lomani < Afnan Supremacy < Aventus < Insurrection Pure

My personal overall ranking:
Glenn Poopie < Insurrection Poop < Afnan Supremacy < Lomani < Creed Aventus

Hope this helps :D

Magnificant fragrance....beautiful, fresh, clean, elegant, and high class......12/10 in all aspects except for the price...a beautiful smokey pineapple fragrance which i have yet to experience in any other fragrance....Extremely expensive and very difficult to find at a discounted price...MSRP $350 for the 4 0z bottle...However, in terms of appeal, still highly recommended if willing to spend more money than your average fragrance

I was early to Aventus; back in 2010. Last year, while on a trip to Germany, I was introduced to Tierra del Fuego by La Martina.
I ask that you look at the notes [lets say identical]. As for the scent . . .also IDENTICAL . . .but, the reflection is to an earlier/smokey Aventus.
I have no doubt this will upset some on this site. I am also sure many will doubt me. I have experienced both. I know what my experience was [and my surprise]. I have no doubt in a blind "scent off", not a one would be able to pick a difference.
Try them side by side and make up your own mind.

For those who have experienced other fragrances by La Martina . . .you know the quality is there.

I own Aventus, Lomani AB Spirit Silver and Reyane Insurrection II Pure. The original is, as many have said, the best of the three. No surprise there. However, between the "imitators", Insurrection II is easily the winner here. The Lomani still smells nice, but is definitely more synthetic, has poorer staying power, and is more "smoky/musty" than the Insurrection II. Insurrection II is brighter, sweeter, and more natural smelling (very close, but still not as good as Aventus itself). I also get 8-10 hours of longevity, which is better than the 4-6 I get from Lomani. If you have to pick, go with the Insurrection II Pure, without even thinking twice. Since we're talking imitations, I also recommend the imitation perfume oil from Hayward Enterprises. It's also pretty close to the original, far closer than Lomani is, and it's pretty cheap too. Lasting power is also about 10 hours, but sillage is more reserved as it's an oil and not an EDT/EDP. I have not smelled any of the other clones, including Fresco, Unpredictable Adventure, Mancera Cedrat Boise or Afnan Supremacy Silver, so I can't comment on those.

It's a similar deal with Creed Royal Oud and Lomani Intense Black, both of which I also own. The Creed is hands-down the winner, with the Lomani coming in a distant second. Intense black still smells nice (decent lasting power too), and I can see where they were trying to go with it as an imitation of RO, but it's more of an "impression" of the original than a close replica. Same goes for the Hayward oil on this one. While nice-smelling (and closer to RO than Lomani is), it still should be approached as more of an "impression" than an attempt at copying.

Hi all! Maybe one day i will purchase the real juice! But right now i dont have this chance unfortunately. I have a question please! Which one of these is MORE closer to Aventus and bring more compliments/projection/sillage? Afnan Supremacy Silver vs Insurrection Pure II vs Lomani AB Spirit Silver ??? Which one would you pick? I also heard Adnan Noir B which is very close to Aventus, what do you think? Thank you all in advance!

What a great fragrance. For me it's the very best by far from any other fragrances. It opens with a wonderful smell of wealth and style. I truely gets a lot of compliments when I wear it. Longevity is wonderful (above 10 h)and projection is great too. Strong but not too much. Definitely noticeable (please be careful not to put too much on you. 2-3 sprays will be enough). The main downfall is the price… but truly if you want the best and you can afford it - buy it. I can promise you - You will never regret it.

Heaaaaavily reformulated. Smelled it a few years ago and said to myself, wow this is some delicious pineapple and the drydown, which came after the 4 hours mark, was a smoky, woody, semi sweet magnet.
Tried again and at different stores and an online sample this year because I just couldn't believe how different this was from what I smelled. No pineapple, no apples, strong old school bergamota and flowers, very lineal and soapy that never seems to get to the drydown.
What a disappointment. This is absolutely not the same fragrance they released in 2010 and this is coming from someone who has liked and knows about perfume for more than 10 years.

دعونا نتفق أوﻻ أن رأينا حول العطور مسألة شخصية، ليس بالضرورة ما أتقبله أنا يناسب غيري و العكس كذلك ...
ظلت الدعاية في عالم العطور مصدر تأثير ﻻ يمكن إنكاره، وهي ﻻ تقتصر فقط علي فريق التسويق الخاص بالشركات و مصممي العطور ذات أنفسهم بل إمتدت لتكون سجال بين محبي العطور في اﻷسفير الﻻمتناهي ...
أيقنت ذلك عند تجربتي لسامبل من عطر كريد Aventus، وكل تلك الدعاية و الحديث المبالغ فيه حول العطر طبعا من قبل معجبي العطر خاصة عندما تجد الدعايات تقول أن العطر يحتوي علي "اﻷناناس الملكي" :) ...
ﻻ أريد بالطبع أن أنقص من قدر العطر ، فهو عطر جميل محبوك بإتقان و أحد العطور التي ﻻ تؤذي من هم حولك ويمكن وصفه أحد العطور التي تنزل بردا و سﻻما علي اﻷنف. عطر رقيق هوائي جميل مبهج، لكن .... ﻻ يرقي لهذا التبجيل الذي قرأته عن العطر في رأيي الشخصي ...
العطر رقم المكونات التي يضمها يبدو لي خطي و ﻻ يظهر تطورا كثيرا من ناحية تدرج النوت فهو في رأيي فاكهي مووسي خشبي دخاني في المجمل ...

يفتتح العطر بنوت حمضيه قويه من البرغموت. و هنا يظهر الطابع الزيستي "قشرة" للبرغموت و يغلب علي الطابع الحمضي المتواجد أيضا و المرفوق بلمحة فاكهية خضراء ثم يأتي نوت اﻷناناس بصورة واضحة و الذي أكثر ما أعجبني أنه عصاري حلو مريح عكس رائحة اﻷناناس الكيميائية المعروفة في عصائر البودرة :) ...
دقائق قليلة تظهر لمحة ترابية جافة يبدو أنها من اﻷشنات و التي تظهر هنا بشكل مختلف عن ما هو معروف عنها من السمة العصارية الندية التي تشبه رائحة الغابات، لكنها هنا أكثر جفافا و ترابية، كأنك أخذت حفنة منها و فركتها بين أصابعك و تنشقتها مباشرة. تلك السمة مصحوبة بلمحات معدنية ملحية قليلة ربما يوجد مركب اﻷمبروكسان المميز بهذه الرائحة ...
بعد أقل من نصف الساعة تتجلى رائحة خشب البتوﻻ و هي دخانية هنا وﻻ تظهر رائحة القار التي ترافق الجلود، بل رائحة خشبية دخانية مكتومة، و أظن إجتماعها مع اﻷشنات أدى لظهور تلك الرائحة التي يشبهها البعض برائحة دخان الشواء :) ...
رغم أني قرأت من قبل أن العطر هو نموذج رائحة اﻷناناس، لكن لﻷسف ﻻ تستمر هذه الرائحة إﻻ للساعة اﻷولى فقط ثم تخبو بعد ذلك وﻻ تميزها إﻻ إذا قصدت شم مكان الرش عنوة ...
العطر بصفة عامة جميل و مريح يعيبه الثبات الذي لم يستمر بالكاد ﻷكثر من 4 ساعات و الفوحان المخيب لﻷمال. فأنت بذلك في حاجة لتكرار الرشات خﻻل اليوم، و هي عملية غير منطقية نظرا لسعر العطر المرتفع جدا :) ...
بالنسبة لي كانت مجرد تجربة لكني لن أفكر قطعا في شراء العطر، إذ لم يشدني و يبهرني كثيرا و اراه عطر ضعيف و يفتقد للقوام رغم المديح المفرط للعطر، لذلك أنصح اللذين أسكرتهم تلك العبارات الرنانة بالتجربة أوﻻ ...

Just to reiterate...


Things that USED to mean something:

CLIMBING MT. EVEREST
Once Earths ultimate challenge even for the most seasoned climbers is now considered a bucket list to-do and a "selfie" destination with the native Sherpas doing all the work.

HAVING A TATTOO
Used to be the trademark of bikers, rock stars & gangsters, now everyone and their... well you know... has one. At least you knew who the pariahs in our society were at the time.

GROWING A BEARD
C'mon guys... not all of you are man enough to rock the scruff. Beards at one time stood for wisdom, rebelliousness or lack of hygiene... but at least those who sported, owned it. Ice hockey players were just added to the Bearded Endangered Species List (now those are beard-worthy men).

DRIVING A BMW
Still a great luxury vehicle, but it's symbolism of those who accomplished in life has passed. Doctors, lawyers and those on Wall Street are not the only ones behind the wheel. "Minimum wagers"... for lack of a better description... are now seen polluting down our streets (emissions and music) in this once prized German sedan.

BEING FROM BROOKLYN
"Brooklyn! Stand-up!". Stay seated. The boro of NYC known for its rough streets that bred toughness and character, is now home to hipsters and yuppies (many of whom have beards) who wait hours on line outside the local organic cupcake shop.

WEARING AVENTUS

For those that don't know this already...every cologne will smell different on us because our body chemistry is not the same. I always wanted to give ADG a good try on my skin but sadly it smells horrible on my skin even though it smells great on my brother. That is why sampling is so important before buying a bottle of cologne. I used to buy colognes just by the great ratings and good reviews. I had to give away 3 bottles of some great juice because they smelled weird on my skin. I then sampled a few colognes that had mixed reviews and even some of the bad review ones smelled great on my skin. From then on I sample a few times before making a decision t
