    I'm asking for some opinions here because as with many people, I rather not do a complete blind buy. I think I have narrowed down the Lot No.'s I am interested in based on their availability to me:

    A42B11N01
    A42B11S01
    A42B11Y01

    My main concern is longevity. I don't want to spend this much $ and not have it last. I want to ask if someone (maybe 'checker' since I believe you own all the ones mentioned above) can rank these in terms of fruityness, smokeyness, and longevity on a scale of 1-10? And for longevity I mean NOT from the POV of the wearer (since olfactory fatigue is a factor).

    And of course if there is a Lot No. that I have not mentioned that has beast longevity than please do mention it!
    I did blind buy of 4.oz bottle and regretting my purchase, I can't return bottle. I already own Creed SMW, GIT bottles multiple times and never had issue.

    I got A42B11Y01 bottle and utter disappointment. I sprayed 6-8 times and it does last more than two hours max. It's way too Smoky and no pineapple. Friend don't even notice that I am wearing Aventus. With premium price it should last at least 6 hours onward. On my skin GIT (10 hrs) and SMW (8hrs) stays on.

    I feel like throwing bottle in gutter or toilet drain. It would have given my money to Charity instead on Creed's stupid quality controls blunders. I hate when such premium price items don't have consistency. I am not going to buy Creed Aventus again that was first and last purchase until they fix their quality control shit. They claim to be Royal Perfumary provider and can't even match small company standard.

    Another first time poster seeking advise

    I would really appreciate feedbacks for this batch A42B12C01. How does it compare to other top batches that is often mentioned in this thread? Also how sweet is the pineapple? How smokey is it?

    Anyone else got a F01 batch they tested?
    I just got my first full bottle of Aventus, and it is from the F01 batch too. It seems to be a newer batch since no one (apart from you) has mentioned it before in this thread.

    It smells well-balanced to me - as you said, good combination of pineapple and smoke. The projection is rather weak though (and I sprayed 4 sprays, 3 of which were on exposed skin). Longevity is good if your definition of longevity is "can I still smell it faintly on my wrist 12 hours later", but I find that good longevity is pointless if the fragrance's projection is weak for most of its lifespan.

    I'm quite disappointed since many people have made Aventus out to be this sillage monster. I'm not sure if this is a problem with my batch per se, since I got a sample of Aventus from TPC before and it was even weaker.

    This might go against your normal routine, but less is more with Aventus. The more you use, the less it seems to last/project. I get 8 hours of wonder with limited application with EVERY batch I have tried. 2 sprays...

    Purchased a 50 ml Decant of C42B12E01. Really nice. I think it is a really nice combo of the pineapple and smoke. Pineapple lasts probably the first hour on me and then the smoky whafts come to me later. So far it has lasted around 5 hours. Not too strong but sillage seems ok.

    Edit: This thing lasted all day..12 hours on me.

    There may be some truth in this. I have a batch I'm not happy with and out of curiosity , yesterday after the gym , I sprayed one spray to neck , one to wrist and one to shirt and could smell it all day long. Saturday night put about five sprays on and couldn't smell a thing after an hour . That said I've never found aventus to be a silage monster.

    This whole batch number stuff , it's clearly an issue , why don't creed just make a statement to end all this endless discussion?

    I got my batch from an eBay seller. 50 ml. Besides bottle being a little leaky when I got it, it was great price and legit stuff from that batch

    Mate, just smell it and see wht you think, that's all that matters!! For what it's worth, I tried Z01 (2012 batch) yesyterday and it is my favourite batch so far (I've tried about 4 batches) The batch on Kron's split from October (C42B12C01) was also very good!

    Z01 was the last batch of 2011, not 2012.

    Ah right. That's odd, I didn't check the rest of the code, just the last 3 digits, but as it was in a Fenwick store and all through 2012 they only has 2012 batches, I assumed it was 2012. Was the best batch I've smelt either way.

    I just bought a new bottle of Aventus from Neiman Marcus the other day. It was an impulse buy before I knew anything about batch numbers. C42B12D01B is the number on my bottle.

    I've searched extensively and haven't been able to find any info on this particular batch. One person asked about 01B a few pages back and said it didn't seem as common but he didn't get any feedback.

    As I've never tried Aventus I'm really unsure about what I should expect, I do get some fruity scents initially, not what i would really call pineapple, then it's mostly a strong smokey scent. I do like it but considering the amount I spent and the history of batch variations I'd like to get my money's worth which is why I'm looking for some feedback. I appreciate the input.

    Yup Z01 is a stellar batch.

    Just got my bottle from Fragrancenet - it's the A42B12E01 batch. I sprayed my wrist once about 20 minutes ago and the stuff seems really strong and pineapple heavy. Anyone else have experience with this batch?

    I have this one, it's definitely a beast. I usually use 4 sprays when I'm going to a club... Can smell it easily 24 hours later, even after a morning shower. I've smelled it up to 36 hours after spraying on my chest/ shirt.

    I have two bottles of this batch. Extremely well balanced and is a longevity monster. Enjoy because you have a good one for sure!!

    Default Aventus projection

    OK. Lets make this clear. Have Z01 batch. after 3 sprays -

    ~3 hours BEAST!

    ~ 3-6 hours average.

    ~ 6-12 hours VERY close to skin.


    Any batch have this history?

    This is the case with my bottle as well. First hour or two it projects like crazy, but after that it disappears quite quickly. Don't know what batch I have.

    Mines is the same. One thing about Aventus is you may not smell it, but others around you will. Happened a few times wearing it.

    Default Re: Aventus projection

    I have/selling C42B12E01. Projects pretty much 12 hours. Can't stop smelling it. Maybe its me but the other day I put it on at 6:30 am as I headed for the train. When I got home that evening, changed my work clothes..including undershirt..I still smelled it with new clothes on. Whiffs here and there. This morning I put on a sweater I had on last week and I could still smell it strongly. Probably one of the best longevity scents I've had...too bad I don't like it much.

    It's a tricky one in that I don't get whiffs of it, but it leaves a trail big time hours after spraying and can be noticed from quite a bit away by some people. Some people, not all people.

    I have noticed that on my skin type, Aventus projects better during the warmer weather.
