    I've got the same batch flacon. I'm glad you like it. Mine is slowly growing on me. Three sprays to the chest with the Creed leather atomizer lasted all day on me with tons of sillage. The next day, my shirt still smelled of Aventus.

    Maybe it's the spray nozzle, I don't know but after 2 days the smell actually changed. The problem is I sprayed Aventus twice on my neck and haven't been able to stop sneezing all morning. Maybe I have Aventus allergy...

    I'm wanting to order this in Australia how do I know what batch number it is ? Which one is better than another I don't want to regret spending huge ASS cash for something that isn't worth the price.

    You're going to have to ask the seller to get the number off the box or bottle. And do it, because there's an Aussie here on BN who got a tepid bottle and is understandably bummed out.

    So, in conclusion, to prefer the C4.....batch of A4.....batch?
    They have better longevity and balance of ingredients?

    Carefully re-read what is posted here Sailim. A42B10J02 will leave you feeling disappointed, so avoid that one if possible. I've been trying to locate a flacon of A42B10K03. No luck yet. It looks like Creed is having greater success with Aventus than was initially envisioned. Some authorized sellers are out and waiting for another shipment. I'm curious how future 2011 batches might compare to what I have.

    It is a really good batch--no disappointment. Glad you concur.

    I almost want to go to neimans and get another! I would check if they got any flacons in yet and if they have the same batch number. If not get another 4oz and put it away! I have a feeling I am going to go through this bottle quick!

    I was at a Neiman Marcus that had two testers, one was from the "A" batch by the Creed counter and the other was from the "C" batch in men's suits. They smell the same!

    Yeah I think a lot of these claims of the batches are people either being: 1. overanalytical for no reason 2. people experiencing different scents due to different skin chemistry 3. both.

    I had a sample vial from Perfumed Court and it smells identical to my bottle. No complaints here!

    Perhaps it's my 20 years of wine appreciation, but I smell differences between lots when sampled side by side - like a vertical in wine tasting

    C4210E01 - More blackcurrant

    C42B10J01 - Stronger base

    A42B10K03 - More pineapple

    There is absolutely a difference between certain batches. I don't even have a sophisticated sense of smell and I can easily tell. They've probably worked out the kinks by now, or they gave the vats a stir before they filled the bottles for the new batches.

    I'm eager to see which batch my soon to arrive tester will come from. I'll find out this week. My current "A" batch did great yesterday with 4 sprays. My wife could easily smell it on me 8 hours later. My 1 OZ bottle is of the "fruity" variety.

    Easily the best batch in my opinion. I believe I have the same one as you. A410E01 right??

    I guess that a refund for those who got some of the flawed fruits of experimentation and inconsistency is not part of the brand's favoured policies.

    Sounds like a plan. You know they'll blame it on the raw materials rather than the re-formulation.

    I am wondering if any of you have received newer batch numbers?
    I am planning to visit the Creedboutique store in NYC this friday :-) and would love to avoid purchasing a lot that is "bad".

    The sample I got was pretty amazing. I asked the seller for the batch and he said it was from C42B10J01. I would be happy if I can get my hand on that one or the "A42B10K03" (I doubt it though). There is also a seller who's selling the C4210E01 4oz. It is tempting, but I hear a lot of conflicting reviews from basenoters, some say it is not that great and other reported good longevity. :-/

    I just want to make sure I spend money on something that I will actually like and wear.

    Just tell them that you're concerned about batch variations and that you want to open the box right in the store and spray some on. Don't try any on from their tester, it isn't necessarily indicative of what your purchase will smell like.

    And while you're there, ask them if they're going to refund the people who received the weak batches.

    Should be able to find A42B10K03 at NM in the northeast. Second the suggestion that you want to smell the bottle and not the tester. And be ready to accept olfactory fatigue with K03. After 6 hours (1 chest spray, 2 wrist sprays, and 1 shirt spray) got a compliment from the lunch cashier, although I could not smell it myself. This part is very frustrating

    So far, this batch you both like C41B10J01 is the only one I feel has a sufficient base.

    I think if they took the exact rati and concentration in that very batch, and pumped up the floral notes to have more presence in the heart and drydown, as well as pumping up the fruit and citrus to initially hide the birch a bit more, they would finally get Aventus to a sustainable level of greatness to warrant it being a permanant part of the creed line.

    That very batch (C42B10J01) is the one I smell on clothing days after i wear them....strongest batch but still too ashy and smokey from the beginning. Nees more floral/fruit/citrus to balance the good smokey/woody/musky drydown of that batch.

    Default Re: Aventus batch numbers

    While I personally like C41B10J01 for its base, I have a theory that the newer pineapple-forward batches (such as A42B10K03) will perform better in the spring and summer. Why? For those of us who live in climates with winter will notice that splashing water on our wrists with Aventus will bring it to life. This is evaporation.

    Spring/summer == more sweat, more evaporation, more Aventus. The only concern becomes longevity.

    My batch number directly from Creedbotique.com is a 4.oz c42b10k03. People claimed this was too "smoky" etc. I keep my fragrances in a matte temperature controlled perfume cell / shelf kind of thing. When you grab for your fragrances, do they feel coolish on the outside and slightly moisturized? All of my fragrances marinate in dark cool temperatures and ALWAYS deliver. I think people store their scents wrong and want more than is already present (Don't worry - I promise people can smell you). I wore my Aventus to the gym on accident and entered a hot-tub full of about 10 people. With all of my Creed fragrances, I can smell my self occasionally (which is my preferred sense) and people always ask what I'm wearing. Try two sprays on the chest.

    I have a bottle ( not a tester)
    A42B10K02 and this stuff is strong. I sprayed one on the wrist and my wife and kids can smell it through the house. 3hrs and its still banging. I don't have no other batch to compare to but I'm happy. First creed to produce like this. Now to the scent it's nice but my wife likes it better she graded it a 10 out of 10 , but I give it a 7.

    It would be nothing short of incredible if Creed strentghened Aventus as you suggest Dullah. I drove a few Creed specialists crazy (sorry y'all) looking for a flacon of the A42B10K03 but was not able to find one. I really don't know if there were ever flacons of that batch available. I loved the extra punch of fruit in that one though. Fearing that I might not find better than C42B10J01, I doubled up. If the newer stock to arrive for 2011 shows itself to be overall improved/ strengthened, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another flacon--but I'm going to have to smell from a tester that is the same lot as the flacon. Only time will tell if Creed is able to learn from their mistakes as far as quality control goes.

    I called Creedboutique at NYC today and the store manager reserved a bottle of A42B10K03 for me to pick up the same day. I am loving the service! He took down my information and said I could just call him up for samples and stuff. He also allow me to try different testers of Aventus. The first one (forgot to get the lot number) was SMOKEY, and the other (A42B10K03) was sweet! Overall, I am loving it. As some other posters have said, the A42B10K03 is slightly sweeter than the C42B10J01 sample that I have. The only thing now is to test how long this baby will last on me. :-)
