(phew, I couldn't think of any more...it's probably because I'm not wearing Aventus, I get it now...I could be sooooo much better if I were)
Thank you, Thank you, and goodnight
So it's not for you. That doesn't discredit the people who do think it's worth it's price. It's all subjective whether a perfume/cologne is worth it's price. I personally like Aventus. I have better frags, though. Much better. But it is a very nice masculine scent. And for some reason, women really dig it.

What won me over was the projection and longevity. It just keeps on giving.
That. And you can always let it sit in it's box in your sock drawer and age for a month or two. Let the ingredients mingle. They will change and get more complex. This is common knowledge with the "E-cigarette and flavored 'juice'. The ingredients for the nicotine juice that gets vaporized has to mingle for a week or so to mature.
I'd wager it's the same with fracrances. I have a bottle of Aventus in my sock drawer and a small one by my bathroom sink that's 95% full. When it's gone, I'll try the stored Aventus, which I wasn't a fan off due to no longevity. Bought from FragranceNet. I now know to only buy Creed from the boutique.
