    Default Waves of Aventus Wafting Through the Autumn Air

    I was outside walking around at the local promenade. I could tell just from the smell as to who worked at Bloomingdale's. Groups of girls walking by and huge wisps of Aventus hitting my nose. Apparently, Aventus is a hit with the ladies in the store, they seem to be wearing it more than the guys - that's what the Creed SA was telling me. Monster sillage if you're not the one wearing it. It was great to experience it from that perspective.

    BTW, Counter Babes are hott.

    Counter Babes are paid to look sexy and smell like Aventus when they walk around the promenade on their lunch breaks.

    There's more to that story, I'm guessing...

    It's a Creed conspiracy... probably paying hot chicks to walk around wearing their cologne so it turns into a Pavlovian dog mind trick thing so when you see hot babes, you think of Aventus... or when you smell it, you think of hot babes. Or even still Aventus = success.... with hot babes.

    I never really understand this theory of "monster sillage if you don't wear it". Is it purely nose fatigue ? I don't see any other rational explanation ?

    I find its sillage to be average to good, but definitely not huge at least not after the 30 min or so the top notes last.
    Current top 10 in no particular order : Malle - Carnal Flower (pre 2008) ; Montale - Black Aoud ; Bond #9 - Silver Factory ; Tauer - L'air du désert marocain ; C&Z - No 88 ; Francis K. - APOM ; Creed - Aventus ; Amouage - Epic ; Profumum - Dulcis In Fundo ; Amouage - Opus V

    It must be nose fatigue as I've been complimented on it even though I could barely smell it. The people who complimented me were about 2.5-3M away. Pretty far.
