    You prolly got the batch we are talking about. When I first spray it, I get apples, pineapples and clean, then the drydown is a bit smoky and thick but every now and then I catch whiffs of fruit. It's a different fragrance. It works best with me if I use only 1 spray because I'm so used to the sample vials and dabbed the juice on me and the spray is a lot more concentrated so 1 spray for me but seems to work well. I'll try spraying some in a vial and test it this way too. Do you like the cologne?

    I will post that I wore to work today and the 1st hour my employees were saying how clean and fruity and fresh the scent was then as it dried down they said smelled a little musky. I don't know what to think. One minute I love it, the next I'm telling myself this is good of it were under $100 but then the fruit smell comes back. Lol. The cologne is somewhat bipolar haha

    Just received 4oz from Creed boutique, batch # A42B11Y02

    Kind of a blind buy, so I dont have much to go on for reference. Anyone know anything about this batch? First impressions are good so far

    Honestly, I understand that batches may have slight variations. I am not 100% sold that they are that different. I thought because I was reading on basenotes and think it had a "placebo" effect on my senses because I stopped by Saks and sprayed aventus on me, different batch number than mine, and they all dried down the same. I will say if I dab the cologne on me from a vial, it dries differently. I think the cologne is so unique that it has different scents that it projects with our moods/chemistry. Thoughts?

    After getting the "ashy" A42B10K04 back in June 2010, I got a new 120ml bottle of Aventus from Harrods. This time it's batch number A42B11Y01 which I have yet to open as I still have some of the old one left. I actually contemplated getting a flacon (250ml), but in the end went for the 120ml 'just in case'. It seems the flacon was a C-series batch number, which is also what the 30ml (small size) bottles tend to be. Time will tell...

    What did you think of the bottle(S42B11S01)? I'm curious. I honestly thought the whole batch conspiracy was real, but after I kept using it and using it, it seems all the same to me. I think that our noses just get used to the fragrance and we tend to pick up different notes. Each day is a little different than the next. I have heard that S42B11S01 is a great batch then I have seen others bash it. After reading people's reviews, they ALL seem to say the exact same thing--- "opens up fruity, pineapple, apples, blah blah, then dry down is a bit musky, mysterious, blah blah" I think people got too much times on their hands. Let me know what you think about that particular batch compared to all others you have tried. lol. Enjoy

    Do I just not like this fragrance? I have batch A42B10K02, the opening is good but literally in seconds it turns into a smokey almost campfire smell with a hint of fruit....and I hate the smell of campfires. I am not sure if its just the batch I do not like or the scent itself. Does anyone know of a more fruity batch than A42B10K02? Or does anyone else have a bottle from this batch and care to share their thoughts?

    Find a 2011 batch. 2010 had some different ones.
    Now if they can keep it up without rushing or substituting things, should keep some people happy.

    If we all smelled the exact same batch at the exact same exact time, we would all have different opinions on what we all smelled. This is because we all have previous experiences with other fragrances and the diversity of our olfactory processes. I have 2 bottles of Aventus, I cant tell one from the other when I spray it. They are the same to me. I have tried to find a significant difference, but cant. These scents have different ingredents and different noses will pick out different notes. What matters is what YOU smell and if YOU like it. Still learning this myself I might add.

    Aventus has really grown on me & I've done a 180 from when I first sampled it. Also, I guess I'm a bit weird, but honestly, the "ashy" batches are really my favorites out of the ones I've sampled. I love the smoky/ashy sample I first ordered from The Perfume Court. To me, it just gives it more character and intrigue than the batches that are more fruity. So I may actually try & look back through the thread & get a large decant or bottle of one of the ashier batches.

    Yeah I think it's one of those scents that just continually grows on you. I can honestly say that the batch that I have(S42B11S01) is pretty good. I first thought that it was ashy and very smokey, but the more I tried other aventus bottles, I'm like wow, this batch is very strong and fresh. The top notes are very strong. It eventually dries down to a amber scent but it's very clean. I like this batch a lot. I went to Saks today and was curious so sprayed a spray of a diff batch and it seemed to be a more toned down, not so strong, mellower batch. Not to my liking. I think it began with an A and ended with a 4 or something. However, they weren't that far off like some has said.

    Got a new aventus bottle today from holt renfrew in montreal. The batch is A42B11S01. All I can say is WOW!! Very fruity and just a bit smoky to not get too fruity. Also it looks to be very good in silage. At first I thought it was too strong since when I sprayed 2 time on me it smelled very strong everywhere in the house for a quite long time. But on my skin it went smooth. A nice vibe of smoky pineapple. The best batch I got from now!!

    I agree. How can you compare this batch to any of your prior batches besides the longevity. If you were basing on smell alone. Thanks

    Well, I would say that the smell is pretty much the same, actually. The smoky drydown remains longer in the case of the decant. Maybe the decant is thus more smoky, as the smoke note lasts longer...

    Aventus is a very good cologne. A Top 20 member for me. One of the best features is that it is truly seasonless. Truly a year around scent. Most scents are not.

    I feel this way as well. If I had just a single fragrance, I think this is it. Ultimately versatile.

    Not sure if your question is actually for me, but the 2 batches I have represent all the aspects mentioned. They open fresh but bold, sweet and fruity but with a peppery leather( maybe this is the blackcurrent); which is what I preceive to make the smokiness. Each accord is represented well with no specific note overpowering the other. Very balanced, incredible longevity and projection in my experience.

    Ya I truly believe that everyone has the same experience with Aventus. Everyone's noses are different so of course they pick up different notes but honestly no matter which batch I try they all seem to do the same thing lol.

    Amen brother! I also have this batch and LOVE it. I got it as a gift so I don't know where to tell you to get it. I think it would be hard to buy a batch online. Your best bet would be to possibly look on EBay and ask sellers hat their batch numbers are b4 buying. You could also maybe buy from a basenoter. I personally love aventus. I think it's an amazing scent. Have you had any other batches to compare this to?

    Well to join the fun, my batch is A42B10K03, bought from Liberty of London about 12 months ago. It has plenty of pineapple and lasts all day. And smells much the same as the sample I got from Essenza Nobile a few months prior. Otherwise I haven't compared it with any other batch but I am quite content.

    In fact I do have a sample bought from a fellow basenote here. Although its smells really good, its not an spray sample neither I can tell the batch number. The spray from Creed is like rain (lol) so I got a full spray on arm and could have a better idea of it.

    Thanks for your tips on asking seller. I shall do that!

    It's pretty crazy how this scent develops more and more as you wear it. It's like my scents change to "that" cologne. It is kind of addicting, the scent that is. It changes on me all day. I may but a few different Creeds and wear them on and off but if Creed said they were only going with Aventus, I wouldn't be upset. Lol.

    I wasn't thinking he would all the actual store, I thought he was going to call the online number to their website and ask them. But ya call the boutique in NYC and I'm sure they could help you out.

    For far everyone has been very happy with 2011 batches. The flacon i got from the NYC boutique was much darker than the 2010 i had before. The 2010 batch was completely clear and the 2011 was golden yellow color.

    I still haven't really noticed a real difference in smell like other have though.

    This cologne gets better as u wear it. It's a "feel good" cologne. I'm addicted to it. I literally get a Sensgasm when I set it. I can't but help cAtching myself spraying this on me all day to just get that good feel. Lol.

    The thing is, when I first got the sample vial from saks, I loved it. I was sold. Problem is, I was thinking infant want to drop $285 for a cologne I may not like bc it could change over time. Thing is this cologne starts out at its baddest state(smokey or leathery type smell, kind of strong) them you are saying that this doesn't smell like the tester. I was upset at first. You can go back through my earlier posts and you'll see. Over time this scent is genius. It always smells like the "vial" sample now. It never loses its top notes. They are always there in the background. I love this scent. My number 1

    Keep it. Mine started out that way. Another basenoter on here gave me a hint to do smaller, shorter sprays. This has helped a lot. Give it a try! Lmk

    the sprayer smells delicious
    perfect mix of pineapple and blackcurrant

    i'll try giving it a day's wear tomorrow and if anything i'm sure the guys at the boutique will let me exchange it....

    the sample of Jardin d'Amalfi that i got with it smells great though

    Thats what Aventus smells like. If you exchange it then the next batch you get will smell the same.

    are you saying that the pineapple should completely disappear after 10 minutes?

    Naw. Two ideas. Either spray in lighter sprays OR spray in a sample vial, glass vial ect and dab on. It's def got a diff smell.

    Try spraying less, spraying lower on the abdomen, 3 sprays max. You will get a little fruit coming through all day mixed w the smokiness.

    But.... Just remember, the more you wear aventus, the more it starts smelling different and the cologne waves different notes. It's awesome. I used to think it was ashy but then the more I wore it the better the smell got. Keep trying it, give it time
