    Although there are a few similarities, they smell nothing alike. There's an entire thread on this.

    I smelled it for the first time the other day. It was alright. Dont think it was worth the $108 for the tiny bottle.

    Could you share the batch #?

    Honestly, it makes a world of difference. I did a complete 180 on Aventus because I found a batch that was exactly what I was looking for. The batches I've had in the past were just too smoky which didn't let the sweet 'royal' pineapple shine through for a few hours.

    This is exactly what I wish more people would have enough courage and common sense to do: smell it and make up their own minds.

    I say 'courage' because too many people feel like they're supposed to enjoy Aventus since so many other people enjoy it, as if having a different opinion is bad. Common sense says the only opinion that matters is the one attached to the skin and the wallet in question.

    I think Aventus is mostly worth the hype (not the stupid "pantydropper" hype. That attitude makes men look bad and it's ill informed since there are so many other frags at a fraction of the price that women enjoy on a man just as much of not more).

    Smell it and give us your initial impression.

    I'd imagine the 'genes' of that batch are great seeing that it's tied to the famous X02 batch.

    I purchased a sample from TPC 3 weeks ago, almost no pineapple in top note, heavy ash almost immediately. I don't know the lot number, but it confirms that they scaled down the pineapple since conception.

    The Pineapple note is actually worse in the 2010's and better in the 2011/12's. I'd expect TPC's Aventus stock is quite old and probably the K04 everyone wants to get rid of.

    Maybe, Top notes are the first to go if it sits around, but a company like TPC should have enough turn-around in a popular frag. like this that it isn't old. I know I wrote a hasty negative review of Aventus based on a TPC sample, and smelling it later in another batch, it wasn't quite as "ashtray" smelling as the sample.

    That explains a lot, but for a house like Creed to have such poor quality control to have wide variations in batches is inexcusable. I understand variations like with a good wine, but they should be minor, and within an acceptable limit.

    Its a 2 year old batch and the one no one likes, Have you tried any of the 2011/12's then to make that statement?

    I think its so ridiculous that this house cant keep consistency in their batches and charge an arm and a leg for this juice...I will never buy a bottle...Creed needs to get a grip and get their shit together...IMO

    I'm beginning to feel like they owe me 10% but their quality control over the last 2 years has been spot on. Its only in 2010 where things seemingly went awry on a couple of scents.

    Youll notice it when you change out of your clothes, then smell the clothes you sprayed, you can still smell it.

    Has anyone purchased from Fragrancenet lately? How was the juice? If you dont recommend fragrancenet what other grey market would you recommend? Amazon? Tuccini?

    Thanks

    Fragrancenet should be fine. If you know what to look for, Ebay is a good option.

    If you type 'Creed Aventus' into the eBay search field, just look for the Fragrancenet store. For some reason they have Aventus for under $200 versus $260 on their website.

    Not sure which batch numbers they're currently carriyng at the moment though.

  24. #1134

    Default Re: Aventus batch numbers

    Wow, I'm kinda upset. I thought I was getting a good deal when I just purchased 6 bottles from Fragrancenet at $260 with their 20% off code on their website in the last 2 weeks.

    If i would have purchased from them on ebay, I would have saved around $100.

    Plus, doesnt eBay charge the Seller huge fees to sell their product? Especially $200 prodcuts?
    Not to mention Paypal taking a huge cut on the back end?

    You think it would be cheaper on Fragrancenet'S OWN website... and not vice-versa?

    some stuff is cheaper on Fragrancenet....some Creeds like Green Irish Tweed, Virgin Island Water, and Original Santal can be bought for a bargain, but Aventus is very costly on fragrancenet.

    ...yeah but one would think the SAME company fragrancenet would charge almost the same price on both of their fragrancenet stores....both their ebay store and their fragrancenet website store. It's the same company after all.

    I love Aventus just not it's performance. My 30ml bottle was ok but my 120 - dreadful. Been wearing it past 2days trying to get a feel for how it performs. First 1 hour I get decent projection then it's very close for another 3 hours and done. Batch A42B11S01.

    It's the only Creed I'll suffer for lol
