    I have the smokey batch and I have to say that it lasts well into the next day and projects just as long. Very rare for Creed in my experience, with the exception on VIW which lasts a good 12-15 hours for me.

    well today I tested Aventus on me

    I bought it from this guy

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/200817140413...84.m1497.l2649

    to tell you the truth I was expecting something strong...I always spray 1 spray in my wrist but for this aventus I have to put my nose in my wrist to be able to feel something...

    Do you wear fragrances for your mom or for yourself? I mean what's the big deal if your mom doesn't happen to like Aventus. More important thing is you like it.

    correction.... today my cousin and my mom said it smells good. does the bottle must breathe like a wine, to get the full aroma ?

    Some people say that but I'm undecided. IMO, the fragrance should smell perfect out of the box. I shouldn't have to wait 6 months or 2 years for it to "Breathe".

    Hmm mine's A42B12D01, cant really compare cos i hadn't had previous batches. But it smells heavier on the smoke to me. Just curious, how come urs have 10 digits for the batch number. First time coming across it though.

    I bought a bottle of Aventus about 4 months ago from Neiman Marcus, and enjoyed wearing it during the summer. The fruit and smoke combination really grew on me and with each wearing I looked forward to the development of the smoke soon after the almost purely fruity (pineapple) opening. With the change in seasons I've moved more toward autumn fragrances, like Chanel Sycomore and Slumberhouse Norne, both having more smoke than Aventus.

    The couple of times I've recently worn Aventus all I get is the fruit notes...I'm missing the smoke entirely! Is it possible that the smoke notes in Aventus are disappearing as it ages (it's a 2011 batch, 42b11z01)? Or is it likely that my nose (and taste) has adapted to the heavier smoke in Sycomore and Norne, so that I no longer detect the smoke note in Aventus? I really miss the progression/development I originally detected in Aventus...help!

    For reference, the large Aventus flacon is stored in a dark cabinet that does not get hot. I decant from it into a black Creed atomizer that is also stored in a cabinet away from heat and light. So, I don't think storage "abuse" is an issue.

    Any thoughts on Y02 Batch? How does it compare to X02?

    Good to hear, was looking into getting an E01.

    How would you compare all the Batches you tried from 'best' to 'worst'?

    And how is the Lot No. written on the bottle of E01? Engraved like some 2011 bottles I've seen, or laser etched or whatever in black print?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Tried E01 at a Neiman Marcus. The Lot No. is engraved on the back on the bottom brim and only says 'A42B12E01'.

    Received a decant of Y02 today. Definitely liking the Y02 better. E01 was too much pineapple and just stayed that way. Longevity was great but didn't like the balance. Y02 on the other hand is smokier and less pineapple, and I love this combination much better.

    Default just got my samples of aventus.... ehhh

    i smell like a high school kid who is trying to hide the fact that he smokes from his parents....

    that was my first thought, i may have got the ''smoky'' batch. in the middle it is very burnt and smoky smelling... but the dry down is pretty nice. ill need to test the top notes with an atomizer later before i go out, but so far im not getting much fruit... its just an odd tartness with a stale cigarette smell in the background, mized with a random manly scent. ill wear it to the club later anyways.... unless my grey vetiver sample wins me over lol.

    To some people Aventus is a monumental fragrance, "heaven in a bottle", and to others it's just average.

    Me, I think it's one of the best fragrances out there.

    But go beyond your first impression and give it a few tries.

    My first time trying Aventus, I thought it wasn't bad, but way too strong and way too bizarre.

    But two or three tries and I love it.

    the dry down on it is actually really nice, i think if i were to order a ''fruity'' batch id like it. to me the dry down is very leathery, with a slight powdery flower note and a tinge of sourness. its a soft but manly drydown. ill keep testing it and see what happens
