    Default Re: Best batch of aventus?

    I have smelled Aventus at NM several times. I recently tested it at NM. Longevity was really really good. 12+ hours. I don't know the batch. I have always thought it smelled good but didn't really like it. I just received a bottle of C42B11Z01. This doesn't have the longevity of the other batches I have tried BUT this batch is the best batch I have ever smelled.

    I went from wondering what all this hype is about Aventus (keep in mind I am a HUGE Creed fanboy) to I get it. I think this batch has much more pineapple than the other batches I have smelled. It has some woods but not as much as the other batches. I like woody frags but I think Aventus is better less woody and more pineapple.

    On me the Z01 batch lasts 10+ hours, and that's from a sample so the sprayer isn't as good as the notorious Creed spritz.
    The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.

    I've had several batches of Aventus through the 2011 and 12 batches and with the exception of the C42B11Z01 which IS very pineapple heavy, I've found all the others to be relatively similar. The concern I have is that people will assume the pineapple batch to be the 'norm' and then become disappointed with every subsequent batch. The pineapple heavy isnt the norm in my experience.

    tested my z01 on my fathers greasy/oily skin and it smells totally not pineapple like on me. on him it lasts longer.

    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.
    Thats what iam talking about. I think i tested now 6 Different batches, from 2011 to 2012, my bottle is 11Z01 and for my taste , they are all very similar. For ME , this thread has finished.

    Creed uses a lot of natural ingredients (ex. fruits and roots). As those natural ingredients get older, they start to get stronger (fermentation). That is why Creed has quality control issues. Natural or organic substances vary from harvest to harvest. You can grow a fruit in a certain region, and depending on the amount of sun and water received (not to mention temperature) the next harvest of fruit may taste different (more or less sweeter). Hope this info helps.

    Makes me picture Erwin standing over a big cauldron stirring in the ingredients in a huge vat labeled "Aventus" standing next to Thierry Mugler aging Pure Malt in his oak casks.

    I might be 100% wrong, but Ive read a few articles stating that Creeds and other Niche fragrances aging over time and letting them ferment is just total B.S.

    You're right about one thing....being 100% wrong. The fermenting starts and last once the frag is bottled and sitting in your home, trailer, cardboard box... whatever. Ask yourself why do these designer frags go bad much sooner than a lot of niche. Something called quality bro. And by the way, Thierry Mugler is not a niche. I agree with you on that aging in the factory nonsense. You may have misunderstood me.

    Lol I can't believe this thread is still going.. I have three bottles of Aventus, the famous X02 batch Y01 and N01. They all smell exactly the same, but the X02 batch doesn't last long it seems.

    You're being pretty harsh towards someone making a light hearted comment, I'm not sure what that's about.

    Further, who says designer frags go bad faster than niche? Most fragrances can last many years if stored properly, it has nothing to do with "designer" or "niche" and everything to do with light, heat, and types of notes. Certain notes (e.g. fresh, citrus, top notes) are more prone to damage than others.

    Many very old vintage designer frags still smell awesome. Many brand new niche (and designer) frags do not.

    I could accept your comments if you were being funny. Unfortunately you weren't funny at all.

    Aventus is gross and nauseating to wear. Smells good at first because its like a fresh juicy pineapple but makes my stomach turn because it stays to strong and linear.

    My .02 cents.

    Yet *another* thread about this over-hyped generic mediocre brew... Yawn... Oh yeah, I guess I just became part of the problem. ;-) Seriously though, this one is not even close to worthy, IMO. I definitely like Diamondflame's proposed thread name better.

    I own it and I absolutely love it. I spray it on yesterday at about 10am and I am still gettin whiffs of it on my skin, if I put my nose to my arm it is unmistakable.

    Everyone who has smelled it on me has loved it, and that's without asking.

    I personally love it and think it's a very well done fragrance. I get a little something different out of it almost every time I wear it. On my skin, it evolves slowly and beautifully, from the fresh pineapple, apple opening, to the hint of rose and birch in the middle, and finally the musk and vanilla in the drydown...all blended together so beautifully. In short, it smells great, lasts forever, my wife loves it on me....what's not to like. Plus, I don't really get all the complaints about price. I mean, yes, if you buy it at retail....but in a split it's just over a $1/ml. I'd say that's pretty reasonable for a quality frag like this. Anyway, just my 2 cents....

    The big problem I have with Aventus threads is that they are linear and I find them boring and uninspired. The batch variation and panty-dropper notes are played out and fall flat, and even the dynamism and conflict in the once-exciting fake history accord just seems shrill and pointlessly discordant. Unfortunately, longevity is excellent and projection is massive, pushing all other threads out to the margins.
