    Just wanted to chiime in to share that i contacted roughly 9 retailers in Florida, primaily south florida since they hae so many high end department stores andall of them were carrying the known bad batches. Looks like it maybe be pretty impossilbe to find a good batch. Might have to look outside of Florida since i'm sure the turnover rate of product is very rapid here and look into a smaller town who may be carrying an older batch....yes i know, wishful thinking lol

    I'm not in the group that wants no ash and all fruit, i dont mind a bit of the leather/ash vibe as long as its well blended and fruits stick out more. There has to be a batch out there!! lol

    Default Aventus experts - identify pineapple/apple batches by lot number?

    Hi guys

    Can any of you Aventus guys tell me if you can use lot number to determine which batch of Aventus you're getting? I have a chance to buy a 4 oz flacon for $220 USD shipped. The lot number is

    C42B10K03

    Seller says it's the 'newest' lot number, and that it's from the Creed NYC boutique.

    Does that tell us anything? In one of the 'Aventus isn't all that' threads there's a bit of complaining about how the formulation is hit and miss and you never know which version you're getting. At $200+, i would like to know.

    Any comments are appreciated.

    Got a new 250ml flacon this morning for the latest basenotes split: C42B11N01

    First thing, I've got this flacon sat on my table a metre and a half away from the computer and its absolutely dominating the Czech & Speake no88 I'm wearing today.

    The top notes are excellent and the Pineapple/Apple peel/Currant have a richness which supass the 10ml decant C4210E01 that I've got. The heart notes are a little more prominant and this also has more evident depth than my 10ml as the basenotes are well blended and compliment the whole composition.

    It feels overall more masculine.

    I might do another split in a week as I quite like this one now.

    Yeah, that's the only knock on C4210E01, is the weaker than optimal longevity. It's the best proportion of bergamot (I think they use less now or the sunscreen ingredient in newer batches maybe lessens the bergamot impact), apple, currant I think, as evidenced at high application. And I like the fact that the base, while weak in C4210E01, is very bright and fresh, not too much birch or otherwise heavy/masculine notes.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the longevity I get from the more masculine base of C42B10J01, but it could stand a little more optimism/sweetness/brightness to it.

    I'm very eager to try the newest lot number you describe, and am contemplating blind buying a flacon of that lot if indeed it is that strong.

    This is the same batch number i received from a recent flacon split. Does have pineapple in the opening but its tamed down from earlier batches. I do notice that the pineapple accord does come back at different times of the day, like its playing tricks with my nose but overall it does have the smokey/ash note in there for sure

    I just purchased a bottle from batch A42B11N01 a couple days ago. Although I have not tried any other batch, this one smells good. I can smell the fruit and leather/ash. One thing it doesnt lack is longevity. It lasts forever. I applied it at 10:30 before I went to work and when I got home at 8, I could still smell it. What suprised me though was that right when I got out of my car when I got home, my friend said he could smell me. Even after I shower, it still lingers there.

    C42B11N01, my Aventus batch number from my split with Kron. I have to say, it surpasses my expectations! I've a couple of samples from Les Senteurs, but this is something else. All the fruits are bursting through the top, and I cannot detect any ash/smoke at this point (20mins of wearing). If it were the sample I would be smelling ash by now.

    How about the florals or patchouli? Are they strong ? Or the final drydown of Moss/floral/musk/"vanilla"/Ambergris ?? How does the drydown compare scentwise/strengthwise to your previous sample ?

    Default Re: Aventus batch numbers

    Florals are strong. Been about an hour now with just one spray on my wrist, can safely say that the drydown is more....soothing....than the previous sample. less ash. more moss, musk and ambergis. can't really tell about the vanilla though.

    What price do the other 500ml flacons go for in the states?

    Should I try and get Harrods to replace it with one from another batch? Even though I've opened/used mine a couple of times? I am not good at arguing so not sure how they'll react...

    I literally just received my package at work from Kron and today my SOTD just so happens to be aventus, so i figured why not give it a quick sample and off the top my first impression is this is defintely strong stuff, i sprayed a small amount on the top of my wrist and i'm catches whiffs of it while i type on my laptop. Pineapple note is there and so far out of all the batches i've smelled this is the most well blended of the bunch. I do not detect any strong ashy notes at all, if anyting its more oa leather vibe with the pineapple equally as strong.

    Very pleased with this purchase and i HOPE that this is a sign that future batches will be this good and they finally got their "stuff" together when it comes to putting out a some what consistent product...OR maybe this is the only batch that smells like this lol.

    I believe you'll be in great shape with that one. There was a batch or two previously spoken about that were sub par. I know this from my own direct experience with them. I believe the issues have been corrected--at least for now

    With regard to Kron's Aventus splits (C42B11N01) and longevity.

    I wore my Aventus to work the day after I received my split. I applied at about 8.50am to a very different fragrance (top notes) than I expected. I had sampled Aventus when it had just came out, liked it very much. In my sample sent to me for free by CREED UK there were no fresh/sharp notes in the top, we went straight into the middle, skipping the pineapple and blackcurrant (at least the sharper side of the blackcurrant). C42B11N01 has the top notes I expected when reading reviews, very nice, and they settle and compliment the middle and base.

    Anyway, longevity - I received a compliment from a girl when leaving work at the end of the day, this was around 8.5 hours after application. I could no longer smell it on myself, but obviously it lingers. The girl kinda followed me around when she had the chance the next day (unfortunately for her I didn't have Aventus on).

    So, C42B11N01 = great top notes and great longevity.

I recently purchased A42B10K02 and it has more "ash" in it and the longevity is not as good. I'm looking for a batch that is rich in fruit like C4210E01, can anyone help?
