They both sound nice, especially the Aventis. Are these going to be released worldwide and not just in the USA like Windsor was?
Aventis is going to be released as a regular lineup scent in all the sizes. I am not sure about the oakmoss though. COnsidering it is banned I would think it has to be the synthetic type. The Spice and Woods will be the royal exclusive and this time instead of that stupid bulb you add to the top of it, it will already come with the spray attachment already added to it and it cannot be removed. As for worldwide releases, I do expect it to be released worldwide but I am not sure when. II think Creed france will have it before anyone else though.

for the update cairomerta. I'm still trying desperately to get my hands on a bottle of Windsor. I have a 10ml decant which I have been using and I've got to the stage now where I daren't use it other than special occasions, so it lasts as long as possible Nice to know Aventis will not be as hard to get my paws on
Aventis looks right up my alley. Looking forward to this.
Why hasn't DavidBond007 posted yet?

This is exciting news.....They both sound very good.....Thanks for the info.....Gary
Aventis - like the pharmaceutical megacorporation ?
II est de forts parfums pour qui toute matière/Est poreuse. On dirait qu'ils pénètrent le verre.

Apple? In both? Hmm. Sounds like it smells synthy.
Pinapple. What is this? A cheap pizza topping? I mean ROYAL PINEAPPLE??
Has it got royal anything else? I'm not buying it unless EVERY fruit ingredient is royal.
Oakmoss is not banned but is heavilly restricted. There is talk of a "safe" oaknmoss with the "harmfull" material removed. Wonder what it smells like?
Is it unisex, you think ? Looks cool ............
For sale. Carnal Flower and Vero Profumo Onda.
Thanks for posting! Am I the only one who thinks the bottle looks a bit cheezy?
I heard it is for men but it is supposed to smell amazing on women because of the fruity top notes.

cairomerta, you're like some sort of frag secret agent.

I have tentacles all over the world haahahah!!
I'm in. Both of them. Sounds like some mighty fine stuff. Thank you, cairomerta. Cutting edge reporting, as always.
I don't know what to think of that bottle if it's real. The little horse is drawn kind of funny. It makes me think of some 4th grade student not paying attention in class--and the teacher walks over to their desk, looks under their textbooks and yanks up some little goofy drawing of a unicorn that they traced from a picture of a horse and then added a horn to.
Maybe it's just the glare from the pic, but it looks awkward. Maybe just out of frame is one of the "royal pineapple" plants and the little dude on the horse is out harvesting the fruit for His Majesty, throwing it into his little royal rucksack.
You know, allegedly after his death, the doctors preserved a small part of Napoleon. Enfleurage anyone?
I like Creed. I also like having fun with Creed.

The horseman pic looks like its from Royal Delight packaging. Is the juice black? It looks bad ass. And is the answer to "What would Darth Vader wear?"

Awesome info as always cairomerta. So what famous people were Aventus and Spice and Woods created for?
Spice and Woods sounds more interesting to me. What are the other Creeds that are coming out this year?
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.
both sound like they will be unique additions to the Creed lineup. very interesting ingredients
thanks a lot, Cairomerta!
I will be curious to try these.
I think the bottle looks a bit amateur.
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?

Is the fragrance called Aventis or Aventus? The thread title reads Aventis, but the bottle in the photo is Aventus.
Quand on boit l'eau, il faut penser à sa source
Its Aventus... I misspelled it. Its now corrected.
personally i want to try them out but neither sound very appealing to be honest. Hopefully i am mistaken.
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.

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.

Sorry for all the double posts. I dont know what happened!!

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.
For swap/sale: Malle Vetiver Extraordinaire, Vint. MPG Santal Noble, vint. Tiffany for Men, Creed Spice & Wood, Roja Dove Amber Aoud, 1 Million Intense & Absolutely Gold, Montale Cuir D'Arabie, Bentley Intense, Prada Amber PH metal travel spray, Loewe PH, vint.

thank you cairo I have taken to Creed lately and find any new news exciting, especially after trying

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.

I'll just wait till a few BNers try them and give us the scoop on these new fragrances
Thanks Cairomerta for the heads up, I am still trying to muster enough will power to try the xerjoff samples, I am afraid I might fall in love with something I can't afford

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 ( :.
