    Re: Aventus batch numbers, part 2

    It might. I have found compared to a full 50ml or larger decant a 5ml sprayer gets to its peak performance, smell much quicker. Of course it could all be in my head. But if air is the determining...

    Re: Aventus batch numbers, part 2

    That's one I wanted to know about, have you tried or do you have 15U11 as well? Want to see if you notice a difference or if they are the same. Please keep us informed as you use it in a couple weeks!

    Re: Aventus batch numbers, part 2

    Right on cookie! I actually bought a bunch of clones of Aventus before the real thing way back, there are lots of comments from me on Club de Nuit etc from a while ago. Why Aventus is my number one...

    Re: Aventus batch numbers, part 2

    It is a gem! I still have an original bottle that I bought in the 90s. I get what you mean then, yeah that's totally wrong I think a lot of people wear Aventus specifically for compliments. I'm not...

    DHI is pretty much a masterpiece of this era, but if what you care most about is compliments Aventus is going to garner more for sure. Women like fruity simple scents, if you want a lady killer that...

    You have stored yours very well I imagine, I've just heard examples from people I trust who also have stored it properly where 11Z has already turned. Newer batches should definitely last longer.

    Not three years, but I don't see them lasting ten years or even close.

    Re: Aventus batch numbers, part 2

    You're crazy buddy! D is easily better than both A batches ha. Not C though, or not yet. And all Aventus is linear, this isn't a refined high end scent we are talking about here. Lol

    Re: Aventus batch numbers, part 2

    Crazy how people see things differently, to me 16A01 is the worst of the batches this year. It's not bad at all, Aventus is Aventus but in ranking the batches this year A01 would be last for me for...

    Re: Aventus batch numbers, part 2

    Pretty sure 16D01 is the best of the year after wearing it a couple times. If it gets a little stronger in the next couple weeks it's a big A+

    It was a much different conversation back then, I was certainly much more interested. There was more batch variation, now.... It's all pretty similar. It's not terribly fun or interesting splitting...

    Re: Aventus batch numbers, part 2

    Wow if you came in here a year ago at least half the people hated 14L01 and a handful liked it. Most of those people are long gone though. It used to be a favorite of mine, my tastes changed though I...

    I have a feeling it might too, after all it's only been out two weeks and it's already nearly a toss up to me between C and D. If D develops a bit more, longevity/projection or crispness of notes it...

    Darker than? Than 15U11, oh yes. Than others late 2015/2016 yes maybe a touch, a slightly darker tone. Mainly just the opening, I've only been around high end perfume for a couple years so my nose...

    Re: Aventus batch numbers, part 2

    I actually tried 16D01 today, from a 5ml decant I filed when it first came in. So about two weeks with air on it, there is less olifactory fatigue than I'm used to with my old 15U11, and it's still...
