Z01 is a beast on projection and longevity. Definitely can be prone to olfactory fatigue to some, however, but don't let that make you think that you need to reapply. 1-2 sprays of this is plenty for me.

    Anyone else have any input on C42B11Z01?
    I've been wearing the Z01 batch all summer and can agree with everything you've said here. The compliment factor for this one is insane as well. I'm not talking about compliments where I've asked my mom or friends either. I'm talking about strangers who outright say, "You smell so good!". In terms of olfactory fatigue, my advice is to spray once or twice on the shirt you are wearing. After a while on a cool summer night when I come to the conclusion that Aventus has completely worn off, I find that I will still get occasional whiffs of Aventus from the spray applied on my clothing. I love it!

    I'm not afraid to admit this but I am very much an Aventus fanboy, so much so that after purchasing a 50ml of Z01 and going through half since May, I re-ordered another 60ml Nothing else that I own garners as much compliments as this. The pineapple note is completely original in comparison to other fresh frags on the market. Furthermore, the appeal to Aventus (at least in my case) is that this fragrance is universal in terms of appeal as well as personal to the wearer. In many cases I have found since collecting fragrance, the combination of such a universal appeal to others along with personal liking has been relatively hard to come by. Sure, there are frags that are personal to some that garner compliments that are along the lines of, "That smells nice." But with Aventus, the compliments are quite a bit more enthusiastic. This is purely based off of my opinion and experience. Everyone is different!

    Can one call the NYC Creed Boutique and request, and actually receive a certain batch/check availability?

    Yes. I have heard, however, that Creed will charge a premium? At least that's what I heard when people were special ordering the X02.

    Thanks for your quick reply. That's nice to know. Does anyone happen to know how much they were charging for batch requests?

    I heard it was only $20-$30 range for the lager flacons. So if you're dropping $500 + on a larger flacon, who cares?

    Give them a call and post the results.

    Awesome. I'll be re-upping my Aventus when I get back from vacation. I've still got a bit left. If it's only $20-30, it's not an issue. I'll very happily pay to get a bangin' batch. It's shaping up to be one of my favorites. Along with L'Essance de Cerruti. 2 completely different scents.

    Do the 500ml flacons come with a ground glass fitting or a sprayer? It's a glass fitting on their webpage picture.

    Hey Guys!

    I`m thinking of buying Aventus and there is only one store in my city who sells Aventus. The batch number is A42B12C01 and I wonder if anyone have the same batch number or have had this batch number and can combare with other batches?

    Would be grateful if I got an answer from you.

    I don't believe so?

    If you decide to do it. We can go halfsies.

    The flacons come with a glass stopper, I believe.

    In response to the earlier post, the C42B11Z01 lasts days if sprayed on clothing. Another great quality that this batch features!

    Akahina, any update on your impression of this batch? How is projection and longevity? Can you pick up any patchouli?

    Longevity and projection are monstrous on my skin with this batch, and the patchouli is definitely prominent.
    The first time I wore this around my father, he asked, "Who's wearing patchouli?"

    Looking forward to hear how Akahina's first wear went.

    I ordered a 10ml sample of this stuff. Supposedly from a pineapple heavy batch. Well see if it lives up to the hype haha. The one and only time I've sampled it was at neiman Marcus and it smelled waaaay too smoky for me.

    Ya. The guy I bought it off of was also selling it in 30ml. I would've gone with that but I'm an idiot and like owning full bottles.

    Does the X02 batch warrant a premium?

    I have 2 extra 1-oz decants of it. I don't know if I want to sell them, just my list of "TO BUY" is growing too long.

    The last two flacons I ordered from Creed for my splits were C42B11Z01, and it smells absolutely fantastic. All good reviews from the splitters for this batch (the ones who contacted me afterwards and told me, anyway).

    Great to hear!

    Quick question.. would lot # A42B11Z01 be the same as C42B11Z01? From my understanding the first letter just indicates the bottle size when the glass atomizers are filled.

    Got my sample today. 10ml of the z01 batch. I like it so far. The smokiness is definitely prominent, but its not overpowering like the previous batch i sampled. It definitely smells green and slightly fruity. It reminds me of a darker, more formal version of bleeker street. This is just an initial observation.

    I had a good 10-15 minute conversation with the store manager at the Creed Boutique in New York. He was really nice. He explained, basically, that the lot #'s of the Flacons are tied to 55-gallon drums. The more similar the number, the more similar the fragrance. The only way to ensure you get a specific batch is to call the boutique directly.

    I hated Aventus when I tried it at neiman Marcus but took a chance on a small decant. Within 5 mins I had compliments and I'm not the type of guy who really gets them nor seeks them out.

    This is the biggest problem with Aventus fans, they don't think mediocre scents are a bad thing :P

    But in all seriousness, it's basically your standard "mens fragrance" scent with a fruity (apple or pineapple) top. Aventus is an empty calorie perfume that caters to the lowest common denominator, it poses no challenge and it's instantly familiar. It doesn't surprise me that women compliment it a lot. Bottom line, if you're in this game for compliments then go for these types of fragrances and avoid things like Montale, Lutens, etc.. you may get one or two, but most people unfamiliar with fragrance will simply find the more challenging niche scents to be weird or off-putting. Our hobby and how insane some of these niche houses go would probably make the average person's mind boggle in confusion, it just seems normal to us cause we're quite familiar with it. Most people I let smell MKK recoil in disgust, but it's beloved on here.

    I had two reactions the first time I smelled Aventus, and both reactions happened in that first split second. They were a) This stuff is such a letdown and b) I totally get why people like it. That may sound like two reactions at odds with each other, but maybe it'll make sense to a few of you. Not trying to insult, just giving my honest perception.

    That pretty much sums up my opinion on Aventus.

    Do people think the Zara fragrance in the gold bottle is somewhat similar to Aventus?
