Thread: Aventus batch numbers
Seems like the consistancy sissues from the past are resolved. Everyone seems to be getting "good" bottles.
The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel! Edit: 2015... I've given up and given in

Looking for swap: Bentley Intense, Boss Bottled Intense, Bond No 9 I love NY for all (Would consider decants), Pure Tonka A*men, Lolita Lempicka Minuit, Aqua Di Gio Essenza
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.

What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence
Thanks for your tips on asking seller. I shall do that!
and search for a promo code on the net to save a few bucks.
This is where my S42B11S01 came from. But it appears that all 2011 batches are being reported as great.
I love Aventus! Brings a smile to my face everytime I get wiff of it.
I've yet to tryout the 2011 batch, but I'm attempting to get a decant of it soon...
Just wondering, if I was to buy a bottle direct from Creed, am I fairly likely to get one from a 2011 batch?
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.
They probably just used an extra drop of coloring in my batch.
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
bought an ounce of a42b11x04 today at the nyc boutique..
very ashy in my opinion, hint of pineapple but everytime i put my nose to it i get more of a campfire
i dono if i should go and get an exchange :/
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
i'm worried about how much a 1oz of a creed can last with their spray clouds as well haha
