Am I the only one who actually prefers the "ashy" batches? That birch note is what makes Aventus to me. Plus, to me, Aventus is a cold weather scent (too heavy for my summer tastes). Anyway, my favorite sample/decant I've had was the first really strong smoky 2010 batch from The Perfumed Court that I had. I also liked the fact that the ashyness of these batches overroad that vanilla/ambergris note in the base, which is my least favorite part of Aventus. Anyway, I love Aventus (all batches), but I actually really prefer that smoky birch note for winter.
