    Awesome info thanks! Spices and woods sounds amazing. I can't wait to try that one. I will start hounding my SA. The pinapple note in Aventus scares me a little and with ambergris listed as a basenote I really hope it's not built on the milesime base.

    I will be curious to try these.

    I think the bottle looks a bit amateur.

    Spice and Woods sounds more interesting to me. What are the other Creeds that are coming out this year?
    Thank you. Creed will also be releasing a 250 year anniversary scent. it will be housed in a crystal flacon and the scent is still not decided. It may be a scent that has been in the vault for a very long time and brought back or it may be a new scent. That will be also released in a few months. The price will be north of $1000.00 from what I hear. Not sure the size but I am thinking 8.4oz

    ... only Creed. Really milking that pseudo-royalty card for what it's worth and then some.

    Are you saying Creed doesn't even know what they are going to put in a bottle and sell for $1000 in a few months? I wish I had a business where I could do that and still sell.

    I do like a lot of Creed scents so I'm not a Creed hater but yes I do find their business model amusing at times.

    cairomerta do you know anything about the now discontinued Private Collection that are now in a vault and will supposedly be released once every 10 years?

    Ok that makes more sense. Your source is still pretty good getting us a pic of Aventus.

    Is the fragrance called Aventis or Aventus? The thread title reads Aventis, but the bottle in the photo is Aventus.

    You've really got the scoop, haven't you cairo.

    I must say, I'm in the camp that doesn't really like the Aventus bottle, but not liking a bottle has never stopped me from enjoying a scent, so it's just a minor thing.

    The base notes in both of these sound very tempting.

    Thanks!

    Thanks Mike. I may actually be getting a small sample any day now so I will keep everyone up to date if I get it on how it smells.

    On another note, these two make use of patchouli, birch and oakmoss, notes which aren't used that much in typical Creed compositions. Another reason to get excited.

    Aventus, at least by the notes, certainly doesn't seem like Bois De Santal LOL!

    Apple/Bergamot/Rose/Birch/Oakmoss makes me think these were each based off a single experiment, and it went in two equally likable directions....

    ...very eager to try both.

    I'm exited to try Aventus when it's released, but the bottle looks terrible.

    I kind of like the kitchy bottle, but I'm a bit concerned about the Ambergris in the base. Again???????????????????

    Definitely looking forward to trying these!

    I assume that the thing that looks like a wing (Pegasus was my first thought) is Napoleon's cape. The bottle is indeed a bit over-the-top, but it is powerful - I hope the frag is, too. I've been having terrible longevity with Creed's other Napoleon frag, Bois du Portugal.

    I'll try em' when they come out. Can't wait. Also, my mind is failing me right now, but is Aventus the first masculine main-line Creed release in a while now? I can't remember the last one.

    EROLFA?

    Couldn't be. Has it been that long?

    [Edit - according to the directory, Green Valley, Original Santal and Himalaya are masculines, but I could have sworn they were unisex releases. Either way, it's been awhile.]

    i can tell Aventus hasn't been inspired by Napoleon travels and places he conquest.

    the sketch on the stickers of the bottle and the box representing a man and his horse do not look like Napoleon , so much recognizable with his hat but there is not.

    NO Napoleon, we got inspired by another historical hero.
    i won't say who, because that's not the fundamental and might bring us out of subject

    it talks about a man at the begining of his own life , he has desir, passion, ardour, he's intense and want to conquest his goal which could be love, happiness, artistical career whatever is your goal; the important is to want this life.

    about the note are :

    Top : bergamot, blackcurrant leaves, apple, pineapple
    Coeur : pinkberries from Reunion island , birch, patchouli, jasmine
    Back : musk, oakmoss, ambergris, vanilla

    there is no birch from louisiana or Napoleon roses


    SPICE & WOOD

    forget about Cleopatra and Mark Anthony's love . it is not .

    Top: Bergamot, lemon, apple
    Coeur: Angélica root, pink berries, cloves, pimento, patchouli, vétiver, birch
    Back: Iris, cèdre, oakmoss, musk

    what. the. hell.

    Ms. Creed, may I be the first to tell you "Welcome to Basenotes".

    It would be really nice to have somebody from the Creed family offering more or less regularly first-hand information about your House's perfumes. We are an opinionated bunch of people, but seldom more evil than any other cross-section of the population ( :.
