Anyone else try A42B14A01?
Good batch! Best of the 2013's thats for sure.
I wear this and a few others more than everything else I have, haha.
Tomorrow's segment... Bod Man Really Ripped Abs vs. Puredistance M
I just can't get into GIT.
It smells like something Rite-Aid carries as a copy cat scent of something else.
Curve for me by default
Seems like a good seller.
You shouldn't run into any issues.
It's a shame how great Aventus can be (X02 and Z01).
These recent ones have been less than mediocre.
Umm.. just buy Fierce... it's not discontinued or niche.
Why trouble yourself trying to find something like it?
I did take notice to Napoleons hair-do on the new ones and it does appear that he's been using Rogain.
The 2010-mid 2012 batches though.. are identical to the real vs. fake side by sides I took in...
Glad you got things squared away! People are crazy, haha.
I can only imagine how many times that's happened and people unknowing sell it thinking since it was bought at Neimans it was a legit...
You're thinking of Chanel's BdC.
The caps on BB should fit tightly on the spray mechanism with no spin.
I'm glad I have large hands or else spraying BB would feel awkward haha.
Buying from Fragrancenet is safe. They only sell the real deal.
As far as fake flacon's.. I couldn't imagine a counterfeiter faking the entire glass vial when all they have to do is fill up an...
You posted in a thread about batch numbers though?
haha, anyway.. you don't have to.
I have 2 bottles of the Z01 batch, nothing even comes close to it.
What batch did you smell back home?
Because that's the kind everyone is after haha.
Higher Energy was my go to scent my senior year of high school.
Everyone liked it over AdG.
I just wore it for the compliments, haha.
Hmm, had no idea there was a Black Sugar. Only knew of Blue Sugar for the dudes and Pink Sugar for women.
Talked to a Creed SA.
Supposedly Creed infuses their boxes with the scents that come in them so you get the full experience of the scent.
Customers have reported to 'layer' different boxes...
These aren't fake, I made them myself.
This thread was dead for a reason back in 2013...
Dude it's fake.
Check the pics I posted of the real vs fake at the beginning of this page.
Mine is 1HA04 and it smells like the original release...
It may just be your lucky day my friend... PM sent
Haha so true
Yea that name needs work.. haha
The newest installment of the 'Aventus Killers'
It's not fake, it's just that it sucks.
The real question now is how does Insurrection Pure stack up against the late and completely unheard of nowadays: Fresco.
There is a new scent called 'Savings Account' splurge on that!
Anyway, saw that you took a dive and got a bottle.
For $16.90 it's hard to be disappointed. Hope it smells good for ya!
Versace Eau Fraiche and Bulgari Aqua Marine and Tom Ford's Neroli Protofino.
Here on Basenotes... it's now referred to as 'vintage'.
You have the 'vintage' sprayer button.
I'll post pics, detailed pics, of the fake I got for everyone.
Use it as a guide...
The fake aventus is on the right side except for the pic with the lot number on the bottle...
'Aventus/Creed sprayer sizes'
....thread coming soon
Same seller, they took pics out of the listing each time they reposted.
I reported one once... The listing stayed up and the bottle sold for over $175...
They reposted the listing, LMAO.
If I want to know what celebs wear I just go right to the source... Creed.
Maybe a light application of HdP 1270?
That's straight up classic barbershop to my nose.
It may even be the only barbershop type fragrance I can tolerate/enjoy.
To the OP:
This question doesn't pertain to your actual questions because, well... it's just silly.
But, how did you get your profile to say 1970?!
Fresco... Round 2
It was the right link, the listing was just removed.
Geeze. All the sprays are right at your head, it's gotta be olfactory fatigue.
Do 1 on your shirt and 1 under. Also, 1 on your wrist and dab them together (that's right Al) and occasionally sniff...
Here is a fake for everyone to steer clear from. Don't be fooled by the Z01 sticker. It's not a match to the real creed stickers on the bottom.
The sprayer says 'CPEED' on the top.
If someone asks I just say "oh thanks! it's called _____"
There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to say "oh, it's very expensive though and it's hard to find but you can get decants..." like I...
That was initial spray right out of the nozzle.
It was nice.
I just didn't care up update when it died off.
I gave my final verdict a few posts later.
That's crazy. This batch in particular is among the worst to my nose.
It has a decent opening but then quickly dies off into almost nothing about an hour into it.
I know it's off because of...
You're really over thinking this lol.
Just wear whatever you want whenever you want.
Maybe live on the edge and wear Boss Bottled Night... in the MORNING! :O
eBay is your best bet at the moment but keep an eye out at smaller shops, they may still have some unknowingly for retail.
No worries, you're getting a real bottle.
IMO though... just don't expect too much from the batch :/
Stand the bottle up and look on the lip at the bottom. Like this...
This is a tester I had, but most lot numbers are clear are are etched into the glass.
I think the formulas changed with the packaging when they switched from all foam to foam and the metallic sleeve.
Ever actually try it? ;)
a REAL one? haha
Don't get me wrong, the beginning is wonderful.
It just doesn't last on me, even the ash is weak.
It's probably just my skin though and the dry air up here in the Northeast.
I actually had this batch.
Just got rid of it this morning.
I tried to like it, the beginning is so nice, but an hour later it's dull.
I have some good info on Z01 and if anyone's...
Here are bad fakes lol. Hmm, the one in the 2nd link looks all too familiar.
Post #1758 with pics of that bottle that was sent a few posts above.
I only had to read as far down as By Man by Dolce & Gabbana. There's nothing else in the galaxy that touches it IMO.
Yea! Crazy huh... makes you wonder if X02 is still out there sitting on some shelves...
Was able to snag yet ANOTHER A42B11Z01... being friends with sales associates really pays off haha.
Gotta admit though, the A42B13U01 I just got also is pretty close!
Check out some of the coolers in the thread where people show off their wardrobes.
A few really nice ones in there!
eBay told me I had won the case because the seller never took action to show proof of purchase authenticity.
I ended up not even having to do anything further.
I got my $250 refunded and the...
Hey man, sorry to say you bought a fake.
You know whats really bad?
I reported this EXACT listing a few days ago haha.
Way to go eBay!
The immediate red flag is napoleon on the front of...
Splits will have to be done with tester strips instead of sample vials haha.
Aqua Di Gio is the only one that instantly comes to mind.
The Original and Crush are the best in the line!
The original release of The Dreamer in the nebulus box is actually one that I re-bought after I sold off 95% of my collection. It's way too good to overlook even after smelling all sorts of niche.
The Allure line will pale in comparison based on just the number of different flankers of Bleu..
Haha, posting eBay links to good deals on here is pretty risky!
I liked it. You're good to go with just 1 spray too. It's kind of invigorating.
People may just overspray and get headaches from it but it's crowd-pleaser.
No crowd-pleasers allowed here ;)
Haha, what does a 30 ml go for in your splits?
I noticed that too but it really could just be wear and tear.
Who knows how long it could have been exposed without a box.
Creed Himalaya doesn't project or last, I'm surprised it's still in production to be honest.
Looks like the real deal. The price looks to be about right too.
You can always find what you want if you look hard enough.
The only obstacle sometimes is the price point.
Anyone in the market for Aventus, just a heads up:
This is a fake
I grabbed a full, sealed, 3.4 oz off the shelf at Sephora a few months back. I also thought I was seeing things haha.
Got a sample to try before I opened it and I immediately sold the bottle after...
Yours are all probably the initial releases too B-)
If it takes you more than 1 minute to pick something to spray on... you may have too many fragrances ;) haha
You're funding the counterfeit market when you buy fakes.
Get back over there and bring a real bottle with you to educate the seller ;)
Less is more with Aventus.
...All kidding aside, I'm going to +1 Gendarme and I'm going to add Bulgari Black, Neroli Portofino and Givenchy Play into the list.
All are easy to wear. Go easy on the sprayer...
There are always more out there, haha. No worries!
Looks like someone already scooped it up. That price was too low to sleep on lol.
On the sticker itself, the blue border should feel a little like sandpaper.
That font is wayyy off on the sticker too in the first pic.
But here is a reference to some real ones for comparison,...
Well said ^^
I feel the same way. 1270 is what Pure Malt and The One could only hope to be. I really enjoy wearing this scent but my 10ml decant is as far as I'm going with this.
1 spray is on the verge of overdoing it, lol.
Alcohol doesn't freeze!
Should be ok, let the bottle thaw before wearing, haha.
Sent you a PM. There is 1 more available...
Here is the updated listing since, shockingly... it hasn't sold yet.
