    Hey guys just wanted to get your opinion on this bottle of Creed Aventus that I recently purchased from fragrancenet. When I opened the box I immediately noticed that the card was missing with the Creed photos on them although I did receive the other insert with writing on it and the Creed name is in black instead of clear. The atomizer is white, the spray amount is massive and the juice smells great although longevity and projection seem to be lacking somewhat. My lot# is A42B13P01. I would love to hear your opinions on whether or not this is a legit bottle. Thanks in advance, you guys rock. God bless.

     Should be fine if it's from Fragrancenet. Don't worry about it.

     

     Longevity on Aventus is also strange and sneaky.

    No need to worry. Got mine from fragrancenet and it's AMAZING.

    As others have already commented, nothing to worry about from Fragrancenet.

    I got a 2012 batch and it was great from Fragrancenet last year. Price point is difficult to beat when you get a 20% discount. I am very happy with the purchase but I did get all the inserts and looked more than legit. I assumed I got a bottle destined for the middle east as it had arabic writing on a insert.
    No big deal to me as I invested the savings on other offerings from their site. I have always had a good experience dealing with them.

    Nice. That's cool hope all is well. I'm tempted to return it since it seems like after the awesome opening it seems like I lose scent of the juice on my skin in about 30 minutes to an hour. I just got it yesterday so I'll give it another day or two and we shall see. I'm tempted to just go to the creed boutique online and pay full retail just to ensure that I get a new, solid batch. Apparently the bottle I have now is vintage with the black creed lettering. Thanks again for responding bro.

    i got mine from Nordstroms at full retail and the current formulation isn't worth piss. If you return it, I recommend trying the Creed Boutique for extra caution.

    I have the same batch. At first I thought the same thing about longevity/projection. But then I wore a sample that I got from Neiman's and it's the same. Both gave me ~3-5 hours, though.

    In my experiences, Aventus numbs my nose very quickly. Might want to ask some friends/family if they can smell anything if you think it's gone.

    Totally agree. I should have mentioned it in my previous post. I wore it from my bottle yesterday, got my 5ish hours of performance, but when I woke up this morning I could smell it on myself. Kinda crazy.
