    So let me get this straight.... correct if I'm wrong, but from skimming through this thread, the "general concensus" is that if the batch has more pineapple, it's better? And the more birch tar and oakmoss.. the worse?

    I actually liked the smokiness in the C42B10K03 Aventus I tried.
    It's a welcome touch that IMO, isn't overdone like Tom Ford's smoky-fruity Japon Noir.

    In a make-believe world, Creed would release two scents:
    1. Aventus Royal Pineapple
    2. Aventus Fumerie Noir
    ... and everyone would get what they want

    I was one of the ones who originally bashed this batch and said it was part of the "bad batches", and honestly, i now prefer this to the much fruiter pineapple batch that I have smelled. They are both great, but this one is a bit darker and lasts a hell of a long time..It gives you the best of both the fruit and the smokiness imo. The split I received from Kron is excellent as well.

    I hope you are right and this batch is no different. Someone was bashing S42B11S01 on an earlier post on this page.

    I just purchased the same batch,S42B11S01, from a fellow basenoters. I still have some from a decant from 2010 and some from a decant I got from Adeel. To me both of my decants are very much the same. I get the Pineapple but I love the smokey birch drydown. I guess I am going to have to wait about a week to be able to compare the different batches and see if there is some truth to this.

    Yep, I guess he is the one. So, I am glad to hear reaffirmation from you. I can rest a little easier.lol

    Now, I have to save a little dough and get me some more Straight to Heaven and some Rose Oud. I would also love to try some of that Incense Oud by Kilian. I hope that this house does not have the same issues with batches as we're seeing here with Aventus.ha

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 also have a bottle from batch c42b11n01, and agree that this is a great batch. No ashy smell what so ever

    I also own a decant of batch C42B10K04, and easily detected the "ash" that you guys mentioned.

    I just bought a 75ml from department store John Lewis here in the UK. On the box, it gives the lot number as C42B11U02 but the bottle says S42B11X01. Do you guys think this is a problem? They had 10% off which is unusual, but surely department stores wouldn't be selling dodgy items?

    they don't come "sealed"


    if it was store purchased odds are some retarded employee or possibly customer (why customers would have access to them is beyond me) had more than one out of the box at the same time for whatever reason and just got them mixed up.

    Depends... do you like the smell of this batch #? Do you plan on using the entire bottle or is trading something you partake in?

    If you like the smell and you plan on using the entire bottle yourself, I don't see a reason to risk getting a batch number you feel isn't as nice. Personally I don't see a difference in smell from batch to batch but others here will say otherwise.

    I must say you were right. I just received my Aventus batch number S42B11S01. I don't find it that much different from my prior 3 batches. It still has the same great aroma and great drydown. I wore it to work today to see if it would last all day as my others do. And indeed, it did. I came home around 630pm and my wife could still smell it. But since we were going to a Sports Banquet for my daughter's Volleyball team, I decided to give it one more spritz for good measure. I must say, I am happy with this bottle also. So far, I don't think you can go wrong with Aventus. If someone has a bottle that they don't like, send me a sample. I would like to try it. Like I said, the only bottle that I found slightly inferior was the one in St Marteen, but God knows if it was me an the Olfactory fatique one suffers with this scent.

    Just got a 4oz bottle.

    Batch:

    A42B11N01


    The opening is fruity: a lot pineapple and a little bit of apple (I wish I got more of apple...).

    One half hour after: smokey, quite smokey!
    Not the typical Creed background, very different from GIT, MI, SMW...

    Have read that Aventus could be consider as unisex.... I can't confirm that, Aventus smells very male imho.

    More intriguing than expected, Aventus is a mystery to me, a new fragrantic adventure...

    NB: The packaging is very classy!

    This batch is the good one with the red apple you speak of? I have a 50ml decant of this one and i believe its been well documented that this is one of the "ashy" batches with minimal fruit. I don't have my decant infront of me but I beleive that is the batch number. I enjoy it, even though i have smelled more "fruiter" batches, but this one is more toned down and more of the smoke/ash throughout the fragrance. I think all batches smell good, but i have to admit i have been able to notice some didfference but maybe thats just because were paying such close attention to it.

    Could batch variations be explained, at least partially, by how old the bottle is?

    Just received batch S42B11S01 as well. Almost 2 hrs in and it's very strong, fresh, masculine. I did 3 sprays total, one to each wrist and one to the chest. Pineapple, leather, smoke, all representing well with no particular note infringing on the others. Had asked opinion of other basenoters on this batch when it first arrived today, but I broke over and sampled my Christmas present! Glad I did! Love it! From what I remember about my perfumed court sample, this is way more alive and vibrant. Looking forward to the next few hours to see how it hangs around.

    To follow up on my inital experiance with Aventus (batch #S42B11S01), I found it quite strong on me throughout my first full wearing. I got Over 8+ hrs(still going strong when I went to bed). I never had to go searching for the scent, it consistantly made itself known, reminding me with wafts of fruit, and a beautiful smokey leather. The scent was present on my shirt in the morning at 4-6" away. The only thing I was not crazy about, which may not be important but is worth mentioning, is the black material on the bottle. I was expecting a leather-like material, but it is like a foil sticker with thin black spray/overlay that can scrape off where it adjoins at the back. So far, I really like the scent, the longevity, the silage, and look forward to seeing how well it does in additional wearings...which will be after it's opend back up on Christmas Simply love this! What a great unique scent this will be in my collection.
