Aventus making me CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!

    Aventus making me CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!

    OH...MY....GOD!!!

     

    So I got a 1ml sample of Creed Aventus from theperfumedcourt and wore it for a few days.

    By the last day I was deeply in love with this stuff! I ordered a bottle from creedboutique to make sure I got an authentic, fresh, well cared for bottle.

    AND THEN,

    The more I read about batch variations the more I'm FREEKED OUT that the hard earned money I had to work overtime for in order to afford this (the 1oz) bottle will be wasted if its not exactly the same as what I love right now.

     

    Maybe It's the "bad batch" I like and they don't sell that one????

    my order was placed on hold so I can still cancel it!

    I've been reading and reading on the internet for 4 hours about aventus batches! shocked.gif

     

    Meanwhile I am sniffing the empty sample bottle like it's a drug to me, knowing I have to wait even longer after I find the answer of what to order and from where and which batch and will it be authentic.

     

    Please help me out here. I just want to buy a freeking bottle! lol

    Thanks & sorry for another Aventus post.

    I don't think there's a difference other than possible subtle changes in the very beginning 20 minutes

    Did you notice that the batches to worry about were being sold in 2010?

    It's just that I don't have a lot of money so, when I spend a lot of money I just want to make sure it's money well spent.

    I did not. I do however worry that the batches being sold now may not be the batch I really like. Perfumedcourt claims their decants come from batch C42B10K04 unless that has changed since I ordered on July 7th.

    But who knows if THAT is even true.

     

    I know, I know...never start a sentence with But

    Aventus is great hope you enjoy. But it seems as if you're stressing over it and if u do, it'll never live up to expectations. Relax a little, don't let batch rumors get you worked up.

    You should be worried! Did you ask the Creed boutique which batch you'll get. This could go horribly wrong. Good luck.

    Please don't waste any more time bothering yourself with this. I've went through 3 bottles personally since it came out, and smelled a few other batches. I never smelled one damn difference at all.

    You're going to love it. Next time but from fragrancenet.com or lilydirect.com
    To save tons of money for the same exact product.

    If you sniff hard and long enough, your brain is going to start making stuff up. Enjoy your Aventus. It's a great frag. I also agree with aphexacid. You can save a lot of money by buying gray market.

    All of the batches smell the same. The bottles that the Creed Boutique sell are fresh and smell great.

    Thanks guys! I'll just go through with the order and hopefully be showering myself in what one of my co-workers described as "two dragons having sex" by next week. lol

     

    Thanks for the help and support!

    Fearmonger.

    Forget about batch variations, for the most part, they're a myth. I'd advise against purchasing a 1oz from the Creed boutique. For a little more coin, you can get a 4oz somewhere else.

    In my experience, batch variations as far as this house is concerned, are no myth.

    I have never read a single thread about Aventus batch variations until today. I found it to be very entertaining.
