I dont know where the hell you buy your creeds guys but since the release of Aventus, I bought maybe 5 or 6 bottle, my friend who wore it too also bought maybe 3-4 bottle and they always smelled the same damn thing. Even the testers that got changed MANY times at the stores always smelled the same thing. I don't know if the batch problem is only in the USA or something but here in montreal, all the bottle from Ogilvy store have never got any batch problems... My friend who work there told me that since the release of Aventus, all the returning customers told her that they never saw anything different from their previous Aventus bottles.
..And the Aventus here where I buy it, its almost only a pineapple juice smell. The oakmoss and musk are not that present.. AND, on skin it stays for more than 24h even after a shower....... really weird... but I ENJOY THAT!!
