Thread: Aventus batch numbers
I have sprayed it on before with 3 different batches and thought it was gone only to get compliments and I couldnt even smell it.
received my 4oz bottle from Amazon (99perfume dealer) and eeveryting came as advertised, flawless transaction. I just received it at work and had to do a quick spray on the top of hand..very nice pineapple/apple opening ...this is A42B12C01 for anyone wanting to know

Giving this batch a full wearing today, and does not seem to be as strong as my previous decant (zo1) which i kind of expected since people speak about the Z batch as being beaastly. However, this seems to have a nice balance of pineapple/smoke and isn't screaming off your skin but i can notice it. I get compliments on aventus literally everyday at work so i'll see how this batch works. It is definitely lighter more wearable version imo. I just opened the bottle this morning, i anticipate the smell getting better over time..
I bought mine from strawberry net.
Anyone else have this one?

Anyone else have the batch i just purchased, A42B12C01? Do you all notice this after a few hours? I know its still there since aventus can appear to be gone to the wearer, but its clearly still around but i barely detect anything after half hour mark. Also no comments from co-workers who always rave about avenetus when i wear it. I've read some reviewso n this batch and people seem to say its a good one.
I just ordered a bottle do i need to be worried?
Thanks. I sprayed some on myself last night and when I woke up 7 hours later couldn't really smell it. Bit disappointing.
Hey guys I just got my Aventus from Train1nsane. Thanks again bud for the fast shipment! Everything was in perfect condition, I was mirin the cottonballs haha.
Anyways the bottle I got from him was batch A42B10K04, which is known as the worst batch of Aventus ever created. I wanted it mainly so I could compare it to my other batches of Aventus to see if it really is as bad as people make it out to be.
The other batches I own are:
C42B11X04 ( the so called best batch)
and now A42B10K04
I blindfolded myself and had my brother spray all four batches on different parts of my arms. I've been smelling them throughout the day, and I haven't been able to smell the slightest difference in any of them. My girlfriend said they all smelled the same as well, and joked aobut how people are crazy on basenotes worrying about something so dumb.
I just smelled the A42B10K04 batch on it's own, and it smells amazing, just like any other batch of Aventus. No difference at all!
So I've concluded that this batch variation thing with Aventus was some kind of conspiracy crap started by someone on basenotes who dislikes Creed. I seriously can't find a difference in any of these different batches.
Hopefully this ends the "is this batch of Aventus good?" questions, because they all smell the same.
I don't think it's clear cut. I've owned numerous batches and I have personally put this down to two things 1) variations in some of the ingredients from batch to batch and 2) the age of the fragrance . Aventus definitely changes the older it gets.
A store I checked in Antwerp has the C42B13N01 batch, what's the word on the street on this one?
If we answer that it smells like Aventus to every batch question, it will eventually stop.
Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur
DIOR Homme Intense
Chanel Platinum Egoiste
Chanel Allure Edition Blanche
Jean-Paul Gaultier Le Male
Thierry Mugler Pure Malt
I've never really seen anyone asking this question, so here it goes. Why does Aventus (and some other Creed fragrances) have so many different batch-codes? I mean, what's the point? It's not so much about the codes, it's about the juices inside the bottles that makes me angry. Why the hell doesn't ever bottle of Aventus smell the same? I just don't get it. Can anyone please explain to me?
Also, every bottle and batch is basically the same. Probably 1,000 people on the entire earth is able to tell the minute differences in batches and apparently they are all logged on to this website usually at the same time.
What are the best batches produced in 2012?
I present the F-Batch
This is my first bottle of Aventus.
Purchased one of the last 75ml's from Amazon directly a couple of weeks ago
A couple of things are skeptical with this bottle here though.
1. Smells pretty fruity on the opening but that quickly fades away to a smoke scent. Haven't checked how long the scent lasts.
2. The bottle's serial # matches with the sticker but it's faintly readable on the bottle
3. The bottom of the bottle "made en france paris" engraving/indentation isn't as deep as I've seen on other bottles of creed
4. The black creed logo on the bottle? Wus up with that, why are most of the bottles, including the ones on creed's website clear logo's on the bottle but this one isn't?
5. You cant' see in the photo's but when I put my bottle close to a light I can see very minuscule dust like particles floating in the juice and at the bottom of the bottle. Not much, but still as Super Red Flag.
I will let you all be the judge on this one because I have seen members say they have the F-batch and like it and Christian M said he bought his batch directly from Amazon and his is authentic, so maybe I'm over analyzing this one. So somebody with the F-batch let me know if their bottle and juice has the same traits here!
Real or Fake

In my opinion, Aventus start to turn a little stale and almost sour-like in very hot and humid weather. This stuff shines in spring and cooler months.
still in the box
box smells like aventus... this is promising
