    Also, it just arrived from Fragrancenet unwrapped. That seems odd, doesn't it, considering I bought a new one, not a tester? Then again, a tester wouldn't have come with a box or cap (usually). I've never bought Creed before, but every other new box I've bought was wrapped in cellophane. Seems odd that this box wasn't sealed in any way. The cap looked a little scuffed too. Weird. But the bottle looks full and the sprayer required a few pumps before any liquid was in it, so clearly, it wasn't used yet.
    Creed's fragrances do not come wrapped in cellophane.

    Would love an update on your longevity and projection on batch s42b12a01 when you get a chance to use it out in the real world.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Oh, random question is the Lot/Batch number on the back of the bottle (bottom rim) etched or in black?

    The reason I ask is that my Royal Oud was etched, but my Aventus was in black.

    It looks like it's printed in black. I'd have never noticed it was even there if you didn't mention it. VERY faint.

    Just saw S42B12C01 at a shop in Colorado but their tester is from an older batch so I couldn't sniff it. Anyone smelled this batch yet???

    s42b12C01?

    I will say this: I have s42b12A01. I love how it smells, but I only got around 6 hours out of it when I first tried it yesterday. It starts with suuuuuuuch a strong juicy yet smokey pineapple smell, but it seemed to fade fast after 3 hours. I plan on giving it a full wearing tomorrow. I LOVE the smell, but I'm not impressed with the longevity. But like I said, I only wore this batch once. It starts stronger than the 2010 K04 batch I had, but it doesn't seem to last much longer.

    I've been a longtime lurker on these boards, and I'm going with the general consensus on the Pineapple heavy batches.

    The best I've smelled are:

    C42B11Z01
    C42B11X02

    By far.

    What in the heck do Creed batch numbers mean?

    C42B11Z01
    C42B11X02
    S42B12A01

    The 11 or 12 in the middle of the numbers above seems to mean the year it was produced. Any idea about the rest? The letters? ...?

    Other than being the answer to Life, The Universe And Everything, wasssssssssssssup with the 42?

    I'm getting good to very good longevity from it, but I'm new to Creeds and I find their sprayers to be awful. Or, perhaps they work too well? They basically spray so much so hard that they function differently than any sprayer I've ever used. They're very finicky. Spray too close and it's like getting hit by a water-gun. Spray from too far and it's a mist that disappears into thin air. I'm probably going to end up decanting mine into a bottle with an easier to manage sprayer! I know the proper term here is "atomizer" but, for a Creed, it's more of an obliterator.

    So, I think I'm getting good to very good longevity from S42B12A01, but longevity might be excellent if I mastered the art of spraying a Creed. Honestly, I don't know. I'm certainly not getting poor longevity from S42B12A01.

    - - - Updated - - -

    By the way - I'm only wearing 2 sprays today and at the 6 hour mark I can easily smell it. That's 2 "Creed-sprayer" sprays. 1 to the chest and 1 to the back of my neck (neck and upper back, really. I'm still learning to aim that crazy sprayer)

    The Fragrance Brotatos are hosting a split of the Z01 batch. It's considered to be equal in smell to the X02 batch but with slightly less longevity. I own both and the Z01 is slightly sweeter than the X02. They'd probably smell identical if I wasn't looking for a difference in batch variation. Longevity is still good with 8-10 hours or so. I get 12 or so with X02.

    Odd. The decant I received has no longevity. Maybe 2 hours tops? I've asked various people (who are not around me all day) to see if they could smell it from a foot away or so. None could. Oh well, must've received it from a bad batch.

  17. #977

    Default Re: Best batch of aventus?

    I have the Z02 batch, big ups to heperd for the split. It's odd, when sprayed on my neck longevity was barely 2-3 hrs but the sprays I had applied to my arm were well over 5 hrs, possibly more if I hadn't washed my arms. It was quite smokey actually, with an undercurrent of Pineapple lingering at the depths of the smoke. Wasn't exactly what I was expecting but it wasn't too bad either. I'm curious to experiment with the Z01 batch but something tells me it'll be very similar...

    I'm more interested in the X02 batch and the 2012 "apple" batches.

  18. #978

    Default Re: Best batch of aventus?

    Batch variation= internet myth. The notion that a company would vary the ingredients they use is beyond ridiculous. It's all in your head, stop reading nonsense. If you did blind tests with different batches I would bet any amount of money that basenoters couldn't tell the difference. I could be wrong of course, maybe I'm just lucky and get the best every time.

    Depends on the price. I have a 2011 batch and it's strong. I don't know how the 2010 batch of Aventus is, but I returned my 2010 batch of Green Irish Tweed (no projection, no longevity) and picked up a 2011 batch which is absolutely amazing.

    I had a 2010 batch that many called the "ash" batch. I have a 2011 batch and can tell you that the difference is night and day. From what I've heard and tested, Creed didn't iron the wrinkles out until 2011. Do a search on Creed batch numbers in this forum and I'm sure you'll find your answer.

    $170 is a good price for a 4oz bottle, but not an amazing one. If you're talking about the 2.5 oz, it's not a good deal at all.

    Agreed. Lot A4210E01 is what kept me buy more and more Aventus.
    Now lot C42B11X02 is just powerful, not a bad thing. What I noticed lately, it reminds me more and more of A4210E01.

    C42B11Z01 is the one i have, and smells great and lasts for a good chunk of time.
    sold some to a guy and he thinks i watered it down because he didn't get good longevity out of it and it smelled different to him (like i mixed something in it). he said "i'm upset you would send something like that to me" and that I should check with my supplier to see if i'm getting the real thing. Last time i checked, the creed boutique only sold the real thing. resisting urge to go off on him

    The juice is not that special to YOU. Personal preference is all that matters. I would not take Kouros even if someone gave it to me for free. But that's just me and i wont judge anyone else who likes it. Kudos to them. What i buy is based on what I like. I dont understand why people see the opinions other people have on a scent as "hype" that should force them to react one way or the other. I use this site to discover new scents. i will never buy a scent just because it is popular.

    The value of a thing depends on what someone is willing to pay for it. If someone can afford it and wants it, kudos to them. The sales numbers show that obviously a ton of people are willing to pay that price for it. I bought mine on a split and if i didn't know about this site and splits or other legit online discounters, i would def consider buying a bottle with the right batch.

    The reason why this gets hyped up so much is because people make threads solely based on this scent, especially by people who doesnt even like the frag. Any publicity is good publicity

    If you smell something - could be Aventus or anything else - and you don't think it lives up to other people's opinions, that's fine. You're not those people, so you don't have to like what they like.

    Even the Aventus haters can't seem to say anything bad about the actual smell. It's always the usual: overhyped, too expensive, mediocre, poor longetivity etc etc but never anything negative about the actual smell. Thats because even to the most critical...Aventus is completely inoffensive.

    LOL at all those links! Omgosh! What the heck? All this over pineapple and wood? Just kidding! I am on the fence...to me it smells like a can of Dole pineapple juice at first..which I really don't like! Good thing top notes go away quickly then gets into the wood, which I really do like. I don't like that one has to apply a lot to really smell it, just imo. I was expecting more. Weak juice if you ask me. Needs to be more concentrated imo. Worth 200? Don't think so. But nice. I'd get a decant maybe, not a full bottle. lol.

    you def do NOT have to apply a lot to smell it. It could get really overpowering for people around you. People have been sent home for wearing it.

    There must be something wrong with you because everyone else seems to love it

    LOL! Wonder why it is so hyped, because every day somebody feels they have to start a whole new thread on why it is so hyped instead of scrolling through the 100's of threads that have been started about Aventus being so hyped and adding their comments about it being so hyped.

    Maybe if there weren't so many Aventus HYPED Threads then it may not so hyped.

    I own and enjoy Aventus.

    If it not to your likely, just indulge yourself with another scent.
