    Nope. I have a 1 oz of the same batch DULLAH has and I believe he bought a flacon.

    Thanks. Hm, maybe it's about the region where it's sold then. Mine is from a German online shop (essenza nobile).

    I have the c4210e02. Nothing to compare it to, but seems fine to me - good longevity, if a bit quiet. Thing is though, others have commented on it when I have not been able to smell it.

    There are still lots of inconsistencies even when it comes to the same batch I believe. I have C4210E01 and while it smells great the longevity simply blows. I sprayed generously on my wrist and shirt at 2 am before going to sleep and by 8 am there is absolutely no trace!

    Yes, this is a bit confusing. I'm assuming i can find out which batch numbers Neimens has to offer prior to purchasing. I'm assuming they have limited stock on hand so everyting they have in the store would probably be the same batch number?

    Which one do you guys suggust i try to get for the best longevity? I really don't want to waste 250+ dollars. I have to get it a Neimens too since i have a 100.00 gift certificate there.

    Just so you know your decant was lot number C4210E01, a 4 ounce bottle I recently bought, that I like almost as much as A4210E01, even though I still find both batches not quite strong enough in the heart and base.....and while I'm not a huge fan of AVENTUS topnotes, I feel a4210e01 did the apple/pineapple/currant the best, from the perspective of someone who would like fruity scents.....I think their best bet for having AVENTUS success continue, is to pair a stronger version of the a4210e01 topnotes, with more rose and citral presence in the heart, and a base as strong as the c42b10j01, but with more patchouli, vanilla, and isobutavan. Hopefully they care enough to perfect this scent, which I assume they would have done prior to release, but apparently not.

    Mine is lot #C42B10J01 and I'm very happy with it. Can't comment on how it compares to other batches, but it smells the same as the official sample vials I got from Nordstrom. No complaints here.

    I contacted ParfumRaffy and the current lot they have is all A4210G01C which he mentioned is the latest release from Creed. I believe he mentioned he received this 4-5 weeks ago.

    Thanks for the update persianprince. If the new bottle from the Creed Boutique is not the version I am after, I will give them a shot. How much of a discount does the Basenotes code provide? Anyone know? Thanks.

    lol I think we should attack other mail order sites until they agree to give us our own basenotes discount code.

    If anyone is looking to part with a 4oz of either A4210E01, C4210E01, or C4210E02 lot numbers, please PM me. These new batches have a smokey/ash tone that really puts me off, which I did not find in the early versions. Thanks.

    Did you find out if the lot from ParfumRaffy had the same smokey/ash tone? I believe puddlemonkey and few otheres mentioned it having a decent amount of pineapple note in it. I haven't ordered it yet but was about to.

    I actually found a bottle of that lot - A4210G01C from Neiman's yesterday and while better than the one I got for Christmas - C42B10K03, still has the ashy tone and can't hold a candle to the early batches as far as I am concerned. The one I got today from the Creed Boutique is also C42B10K03 (Must be the most recent batch). I will keep the A4210G01C until I can find what I am looking for. What a mess. Thanks for inquiring.

    This is becoming one big clusterfuck lol. I'm sure all versions are pretty good but i really want to get the a lot number that is up to par with the decant that i've been using. I'd hate to spend this kind of money and have a different smell.

    I called my local neimens and they are out of the 4oz bottles to see which lot number they have. Is there any other places we can confirm what lot number we are receiving before purchasing?

    C42B10J01 here also on my neimans flacon. Lasts as long as the tester sprays I tried first few times but that amazing musk base is hardly there. However the pineapple and rubbery smoke stay on forever now vs the creamy musk base. I like my flacon but would like to have more of that amazing base too. Any other Creeds have that base in a huge way I could try? Tried SMW, Himalaya, BdP and they are nice but not near that leftover base I had from the Avdntus tester that lasted a week on my sweater.

    are you guys sure the lot numbers aren't just variables according to BOTTLE SIZE? A4210E01's are 1 oz, C42B10J01 are Flacons, ECT...?
