    Yeah the name reminds me of cheesy Reno lounge acts. No offense!

    This whole Aventus thing is an inside joke, right? lol

    This topic is filled with Creed SA's, right?

    Don't make me blind buy it....

    I'm no Creed fanboy, but I would have to say that Aventus (with a good batch) is really nice, good sillage, lasts all workday for me, and has garnered a few compliments. Plus it's fairly unique (how many smokey-pineapple frags do you have?), so I'd say it's worth a shot. And now that it's available in 17oz flacons (you read that right), you should be able to get in on a split that won't break the bank. If you end up blind-buying and not liking, you also won't have any trouble selling it either. Can't really lose.

    Which is why I blind bought from Kron! I don't expect myself hating it though. If worse comes to worse, I'll just sell it to one of many willing buyers

    Talking Re: Which scent gets you the most female compliments?

    [QUOTE=PsYcHo;2484626]Another one for Aventus today. Well, not just one but 2. First, a random girl was waiting near me at the cashier and she said "excuse-me, can you tell me what are you wearing? It smell very delicious". In my head I was like "hmm, you are a girl so you don't need to know the name unless its for your boyfriend and HELL NO I'm not going to reveal my addictive secret smell". So I said "thanks thats called my little secret". Then, at work, I got a comment from a GUY and this guy was the kind of guy that is very shy and he never complimented me for all the frag I wore while working with him for over 6 years. he said I was smelling sooo good and kinda "addictive".

    I definitely agree. Yesterday, I wore Aventus to a huge convention. When I ventured home, I stopped at an IHOP. My waitress immediately gave me the google eyes and said, "Somebody is sure smelling good tonight!" I sure hope Hanae Mori works its usual magic tomorrow!!

    Aventus is a compliment getter.

    Most recently, it's been Tom Ford Amber Absolute and Mugler's Pure Shot

    Aventus is a truly amazing masterpiece fragrance for those men who want to smell and feel like their grandfathers.

    I don't know if the problem comes from your aventus batch or from yourself but you are completely wrong. Young sexy chicks don't get crazy at grandpa's cologne (or old men's cologne) and however they get crazy on aventus's smell. Also, I got told by many hot young womens (from 25-30) that it smells so sexy and delicious. Hmmm.. I don't think grandfathers smell sexy and delicious!

    I just smelled Aventus today. The guy at the counter wouldn't let me spray any...so I could only sniff the bottle lol. but it was potent enough, I'd say. It was a weird unique scent but definitely alluring and definitely masculine. I felt it was identifiable. and exquisite. Now I just need to get some sucker to buy it for me.

    Are you serious? That is absurd. No reason they shouldn't let you spray it if the bottle is already open!

    Maybe it was a small local discounter that carries limited CREEDs. If this happened at Nieman Marcus (unmanned counter full of Creed) or at Bergdorf (knowledgeable assistant willing to decant and give a sample of another Creed), then it's a different story.

    If the bottle is already opened, then even at small local discounter I don't see why can't spray it.
    I totally understand if tester is missing from counter, for example, and I don't expect the store to open a new bottle to have customer sample it (I've had SA's kind enough to do this, but certainly don't expect it to be done). The tester is there to be tested. In fact, it is not wrong to ask "put it on my skin, I am going to walk around for 1 hour (or more) and let you know what I think". Or even come back next day or after. You need to know how scent evolves on skin with time. How else can you judge midnotes/basenotes and longevity?

    If in this case, the bottle was not a tester but a bottle for sale, then I guess that would be one excusable example. But would expain with "very sorry but tester was stolen, missing, etc".

    ^ I agree with you. I don't even buy a fragrance until after a couple of wearings. But since RGI didn't elaborate, I was under the impression that the store opened a sealed box and let him sniff it from the bottle upon his request.

    I think we are all in agreement that if it was a tester, we don't see any other reason why he was allowed to spray it.

    No, no. It was completely reasonable. It was a Pakistani shop and he was kind to do that much. They don't have all our fancy Bergdorfs and Neimans.

    Looking at your 'location', you're all over the place! I wonder what scents are available in Pakistan and Morocco. I traveled around Morocco 2 years ago (beautiful country), but this was before I fell into fragrances.

    By the way, you seem like a woman of the world - I'm sure you won't have any trouble getting a sucker to buy Aventus for you. Although are you sure you don't want to smell it on him?

    Sure, but in that case he's going to need to buy a bottle for himself as well.

    Rive Gauche/Zino in the day and L'instant extreme in the night seem to get me alot of compliments, though they are the frags that i'm wearing the most. The Dreamer and London never fail too. It may be a bit generic and quite popular but I have a feeling that CH Chic will be up there in the hot weather.

    This year, L'Instant de Guerlain PH seems to be my top compliment-getter. Amazingly, even little girls (11-yr olds) seem to appreciate the scent. In my few wearings of Rochas Man, it still came in second. People "notice" it when I wear Aventus, but so far, no real compliments yet.
