    I was never very worried till i got sample which was very very smokey and lacked the pineapple/apple blast everyone was talking about. I'm hoping the 2012 batches are what I'm after.

    I own a decant of C42B11X02 and a 4oz bottle of S42B12A01 and to be quite honest, the only difference between the two to me is that the 2011 batch is a tad bit stronger as far as projection. Both smell identical and the 2012 batch still brought on just as many compliments as the 2011 does. I wouldn't take this whole batch thing too literally. I just can't speak for the 2010 batches which are rumored to be the more smokey ones. If you get a 2011 or 2012 bottle, you will be happy.

    Thanks a lot, because at one stage I was almost repulsed by Aventus simply because of all the batch talk and how many different variations there were.

    100% agree, Aventus is like the "Harry Houdini" of fragrance. It pulls a dissappearing act to the wearer, but everyone else can easily smell it on you. It's quite an amazing scent, definitely one of the best in Creed's arsenal...I've gotten so many compliments on it.

    There 2010 batches weren't just smoky, they actually smelt rubbery to me. Smokiness is nice (if it's blended well), but I can't justify a rubber-like scent, no matter who makes it. The batch I have in mind was the dreaded 10K0? that got raved about in this thread multiple times before.

    I get so many compliments on the Z01 batch (both the one I've had for a month and the 1 week old split) that it amazes me. And I'm not one to search out compliments. I just wear what I like so that I can enjoy it.
    is it like wine? does the bottle must breathe? my brand new bottle Z01 is still very weak

    This is what I think too.

    I could be wrong, but I suspect Creed was totally unprepared for the early success they saw with Aventus. Rather than sell out and have it be unavailable (which would have been the better move IMHO), they did whatever they had to in order to keep up with demand, which may have included sourcing lesser ingredients or speeding up the blending process. Again, that's just my opinion, but it sure would explain why they aren't having wild batch variations now that they have a better handle on how much they need to make in order to keep up with demand.

    Interesting! I started with a sample of the A42B10K04 batch. I bought a 4oz bottle of S42B12A01. By comparison, the A42B10K04 batch was a darker smoke. I didn't detect anything rubbery, but I wouldn't be surprised if you and I are describing the same thing in different ways.

    I really do agree that Aventus is safe to buy now. Early 2010 batches of the good stuff are long gone, and late 2010 batches of lesser stuff are long gone too. Aventus seems to have been consistent through 2011 and 2012.

    You kow what im thinking? Basenotes or another Website should let you put the individual batch numbered Aventus into a separate acting fragrance and we can check out everyones ratings on them and derive from there which batch WE would want to get...leather heavy....pineapple heavy.....more longevity and so on.

    Personal opinions vary so differently that this would be almost impossible. Some people report poor longevity and projection with the same exact batch as another person who says they get 12+ hours longevity and superb projection.

    I did it when I got a hold of both batches, haha.

    Both are great, fresh, pineapple heavy scents, but the X02 lasts a tad longer.

    When I first got it a year ago, it contained the beautiful fresh pineapple opening. Now all it smells of is smoke and wood, no trace of pineapple. Did my bottle just turn bad?

    I must say I never believed this with other scents by Creed like GIT, but I can see that my Aventus is getting smokier too. I have the Y01 (or is it 02?) batch and it's almost a year old (got it on the 2nd Jan). 4oz/120ml bottle and about 40% is used up. Stored in a fairly cool cupboard away from humidity and moisture. Definitely more smokier than it used to be...

    so, get no chance to find a x02 batch, only 2012 batches. is it really really a big different to my z01 batch??. my best perfume sales assistent told me that they are all the same, and he tested every bottle since 2010. i am really confused of all this postings.

    today i tested the newer 2012 E01 and this is the same juice as my Z01!!

    Default Aventus batch c42b11x02

    Anyone know if this batch is still available anywhere out there?
    Back in March I purchased 120ml in a split held by a mutual friend on Facebook, I got it for a ridiculously good price ($140). I fell in love, and it soon became my signature scent. People now know me for this smell, and I'm the only person in my town who wears this.
    What's the problem? I only have 20ml left

    Are there any batches that smell the same?

    Honestly, the hype went way too far with the X02 batch. I'm pretty sure I got one as a sample from fragrancenet a few months ago when people were talking about them selling those samples (though I didn't know it at the time). I used it up, and I couldn't really notice a difference between that and the Z01 batch.

    In short, I wouldn't go searching for another X02 batch, nor would I worry too much about the batch. Right now, Z01 is plentiful and popular.

  22. #1282

    Default Re: Aventus batch c42b11x02

    Yes, I've heard it's quite similar to the Z01 batch, which I have and love (not overly smokey & strong on the pineapple), so you could also look for that. I'm pretty sure, however, that most of what's being sold (bottles & splits) right now is the 2012 batches. You may have to look for second-hand sales of those batches to get them at this point.

  23. #1283

    Default Re: Aventus batch c42b11x02

    I echo whats been said. The x02 batch was note worthy because it was the first pineapple heavy batch after the the "bad" smokey batches of 2010/early 2011 (which many speculate were "bad" because Creed rushed production to meet the unexpected demand). From X02 on, it seems Aventus has become more consistently pineapple/fruit heavy. Batch variations still exist like with all Creeds but now its like the other Creeds where the variations really don't matter unless you OCD about them.

    I'll have to ask my contact what he's got. I carry an atomiser whenever I wear Aventus on a night out.
    I know many feel that it's overrated, but I love to have a few universally appealing scents in my collection... especially niche.

    The x02 batch is the same as the z01 batch....which are both as good as you will get with Aventus.

    I could repeat this until i pass out- They only reason everyone talks about how great the x02 batch is....because that is the batch that about 50 flacons of were split several months ago(I split at least 15 myself). That was the first batch available when Creed started keeping 500ml flacons in stock. Before that the 500ml flacons were hard to come by- so splits were harder to do.
    So, ergo, a lot of people...50x10 at least have a decant of that batch. So they all say how great it is and its the best ever, and they may have not ever smelled Aventus before.

    X02 and Z01 are not the same. Both are good, but X02 still stands out.
    I own flacons of both. The only reason that different lots stand out to me is because of the release of those "ashy" 2010 bottles.
    After that everyone, including myself started to look way too much into the lot thing.
    Overall they been good after 2010.

    Agreed.... I would definitely say that it is well balanced, yet still more fruity than smoky. The little smokiness and musk in it is amazing to me actually (I'm probably the first to say that I know). Sillage is also very good. As I move, I am able to get whiffs of it throughout the entire day...I have only garnered one compliment (from a female I'm dating, who loves it!) so I am not sure how well others can smell it or if they just don't compliment.

    Either way this fragrance will have a permanent spot in my collection!
