    Aventus by Creed

    I know I'm gonna swim against the stream but I think that Aventus it's just another overpriced and overhyped fragrance by the guys at Creed. I generally love Pineapple in fragrances but Aventus fruity / bergamot opening is pretty conventional and not so well executed (If you like Pineapple try Biehl AL3). In the middle phase things get a little better with a slightly harsh and dusty flowery accord that lasts for a couple of hours. Then be prepared (again) for a conventional musky drydown.

    Aventus is introduced as a "Provocative, masculine and optimistic fragrance" but I find it quite generic and a bit conventional. Overall Aventus is fine but for $250 you can have way much better fragrances, believe me!
