    I also got the same lot number for my Aventus I just bought from Fragrancex.com . I had sold an older bottle and decided to see if there was a great difference. I have to say it is quite ashy in the opening and slightly less itneresting than my previous batch which was quite nice but was far more potent. That bottle was so strong that its odor would take over the room. This one is more tame. I wish there was a good batch for me to try. Overall, I wouldnt' say I'm disappointed but am more puzzled.

    I want to know if this is actually a problem or that I am mentally setting myself for disappointment.

    Just received a couple of days ago from FragranceX. I got a reasonable discount so I went for it.

    Zero pineapple, black currant or apple. Just an ashy scent similar to CDG Zagorsk but not as strong or interesting.
    Lasts 5 minutes. Zero sillage.
    I'm no Creed-basher like many here at Basenotes, just check out my review for Himalaya.

    It's going back tomorrow.

    Boo-urns!

    Just bought batch C42B10K03 (120 ml bottle).
    I don't know about the other batches and I didn't smell them at all. So it's hard for me to compare.

    However, few points here

    1. Aventus is a perfume that we tend to get used to it very quickly. I mean, after 5-10 minutes max, we just cannot smell it anymore. Call it fatigue, call it whatever you want, but Aventus is this kind of perfume that disapear after a while in our nose.

    2. Even though we cannot smell ourselve, let say 10-30 minutes after application, people around us will smell our perfume.

    3. Lasting power is not one of the best, but my wife and my kids can smell it on me after 8-10 hours. However, to notify it, they have to be close. On my skin, the only fragrance that last forever are Ambre Fetiche, Encens Flamboyant, Kouros and MKK serge lutens. I would say Aventus is average/long in the lasting power department

    4. Projection is awseome for the first 3-4 hours. I usually spray 3-4 pouchhs on my chest and even after 3 hours, as soon as someone is entering in my office they will notify my perfume.

    5. This is the best compliment getter of all. I have never, I say NEVER get so many positive comments about a perfume than with Aventus. It's crazy. Girls from their 20s to 70s all like it and ask what is that. Some cutes girls at my job just pass by my office to take a sniff. Some of them wants to buy this to their husband/boyfriend for christmas. On the street, at the supermarket, at the restaurant, at the gym and even at the Tim Horton drivethru girls keep sayins it's smell soooooo good !

    6. I am pretty sure that the impact of batch number is very minimal. Let say, you do a blind test with every single batch number, and I am almost sure you won't be able identify the best from the worst.

    Batch number issues and concerns are more related to the nose fatigue than the batch itself.

    It's quite normal that after 3-4 straight days of application, you won't smell it as much as the first time you had the chance to smell it.

    Aventus just dissapear for us, but is still present for everyone else around us.

    I think it's crazy for a cologne that costs THAT much, you need to hope you get a good batch.

    No olfactory fatigue here, I can smell it for the duration... It is VERY strong stuff, and stays that way for many hours. That's part of the reason it gets so many compliments.

    Also, I think batch variation also have to do with how long it's sat in the bottle.

    this has been my experience as well. half way through a 4.0oz bottle and I've never received so many compliments on a fragrance.

    Aventus does play tricks with the olfactory senses, sometimes I have to give it a break before using it again. It is a long lasting attention getter for sure an definitely one of creeds best fragrances...

    Sorry to bring this thread back to the top...

    Just want to suggest everyone who is getting too much smoke or ash from the fragrance to apply LESS fragrance and see if they get more topnotes. I have noticed this today as I was applying several sprays (6-8) in the morning and today applied just 4. I got much more fruit in the opening than I used to...

    I have a 120 ml bottle of the original C4210EO1 batch from when Aventus was first launched. I got it in John Lewis in London and I've loved it from the start. Recently, however, I've noticed a somewhat unpleasantly sharp note immediately after spraying. I've always stored my bottle properly and replaced the cap properly. After the dry down, things seem to return to normal.

    I assume fragrances change over time (a year and a bit in this case). It seems the original gloriously fresh pineapple first note of this batch has matured to a much less appealing something.

    Or maybe it's me.

    I stand very firmly in Creed's court. However, I do have to endorse these claims of batch variance. My experience with Aventus has been shifty. I took home a scented strip from Saks on a Monday and I got a really sophisticated, musky scent with a lot of fir. So much fir, in fact, that I was convinced that this would be a good fall fragrance. The scent on the strip was still quite strong on Saturday, and I purchased it on Sunday. When I purchased my 2.5 oz bottle (batch a42b11no1), I received 2 samples of the same fragrance. I decided I would use the samples first and the instant I opened a sample I had buyer's remorse and I became really disheartened. Sweet, sticky, summery. I used the samples, but not before applying some to a piece of cloth. The sample fragrance lasted-and this is generous-one day before only the detergent-y musk remained. I threw caution to the wind and sprayed the bottle, only to win what may be a lottery. It smelled fine. Musky, fir, fall. I'm still gonna buy from Creed. But I can see how people would want to stop playing while they're ahead (or behind).

    Great batch, the blackcurrent in the opening is much stronger than other batches but it sure is a good one.

    I just got an Aventus flacon from Neiman Marcus today batch C42B10J01. That's weird because that is a batch from 2010. The good thing is I've had this batch before and it was good. A few months ago I ordered from Neiman Marcus and got batch C42B11N01 which is also nice. I've decanted at least 8 flacons of Aventus and a few of the batches were "ashy" but I wore some from that "bad" batch today and still got a compliment at work.

    I have got batch 'C42B10K03' from Creed Counter at Siam Paragon in Bangkok --the SA is really nice-- and I did not smell the ash, all I get in the top note is dark pineapple. I spray it last night before going to sleep and I still able to smell it now.

    By the way, it is suck that you buy a pricey niche , but you need to hope you get a good batch.

    That's interesting, i want to say the batch you just mentioned is one that is documented as being one of the worst, as far as nothing buth smoke/ash and zero fruit. I have this batch but have not really touched it in months, so i will revisit myself to see if i have a different impression. I do recall it having good longevity but not the fresh/bright fruit notes other batches I've sniffed have had.

    It has dark fruit notes, not quit fresh, but it is still have fruit note that I can tell from the 1st spray that it is pineapple note.

    The counter at Siam Paragon is the exclusive Creed counter in Thailand as Mr. Erwin Creed, the 7th generation of House of Creed, went there on 22-23 Nov, 2010.

    I actually loved the smokey aspect of it when I purchased the decant from the perfumed court. But this batch I got from the creed boutique was too intense. Figured if I bought straight from the boutique less chance of a bad batch.....not so much.
