Thread: Aventus batch numbers
My latest is a 2012 01 bottle. I wore it yesterday. Didn't notice any different longevity or projection than usual.
I sprayed it at 2pm and it was strong until midnight. Then I had to actually pay attention to smell it by 2am.
I love this stuff so damn much.
I wear 3 sprays typically, and I can deodorize a good size room with Aventus for up to about 6 hours. It's a projection and longevity beast in the same ballpark as joop and LeMale to my nose. I think that's one of the reasons it gets complimented so much--it can be smelled readily by everyone close to you, even if they have a cold. From 6 to 12 hours, it is quite easy for people to still smell it on you if they are relatively close.

It'd be funny if the mods modified the forum so that any mention of "Aventus" would get replaced with a different word.
Now here's an idea, if there's a topic you don't wish to discuss...keep scrolling.
Normal projection. Couldn't care less about the batch.
this sounds about right.
then again, i do have the z01 batch <3 <3 <3
Mine is stellar. Was purchased in 2010. I could care less about the batch as well.
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Anyone have experience with A42B12C01 ?
There is a seller selling this on Ebay for $50 cheaper than all the online stores. I emailed them to ask about batch number and they said (quote):
"All our Creed products come from our US warehouse and as a result the batch numbers can vary and would be impossible to give as it may not be the one you would ultimately receive. This item is very popular and to date we have had no issues with the product in anyway."
I wonder if it's worth the risk?
There is no risk, just buy it from the cheapest source possible. The batch variations have been blown waaay out of proportion.
I have been comparing my new E01 batch to my older dreaded K01 batch, and the E01 is slightly sweeter in the opening but fast forward 2 hours into the fragrance they basically smell identical. They both have equal longevity but the K01 absolutely smashes the E01 in terms of projection.
I did a blind test with my partner. She too picked the E01 as ever so slightly sweeter than the K01 in the opening and agreed with me that after 3 to 4 hours they smelled the same and could not pick them apart.
I continue to wear wnd rotate both.
where you make ur 3 sprays?
I like Aventus.
Long after I can't smell it anymore, other people can. It's one of the few fragrances like that on my skin where I can't smell it after a couple hours. But if I sniff my shirt the next day, Aventus is there.
Vintage Kouros rocks
ToughCool how much for the E01?? I contemplating buying a 95% Z01 batch, but I just want to see what else is out there before I make a major purchase on that!
keepin' it musky
It is a very nice scent, which makes good impression and gets lot of compliments.
Nevertheless it left me cold because of "mishmash" composition and the lack of prominent and distinguishable accord

Just got a bottle from FragranceNet and it was batch A42B12C01
Compared to Z01, it has much less pineapple and much less smoke.
It is mostly an OAK WOOD smell.
It disappears in a couple hours.
I miss my pineapple-intensive Z01 batch.
Do you think $275 is too much to pay for a 4 oz. bottle of Aventus with batch Z01?
That's what I paid on ebay.

if any body of you comes across something by the name of BATCH NO IS A42B12C02, stay clear of this thing. I have got it and after a month of use, this thing is no better than an aftershave. believe me , i after taking a bath each morning, apply ten puffs of this thing to my arm pits , chest and neck and nobody even notices.
