    Was able to snag yet ANOTHER A42B11Z01... being friends with sales associates really pays off haha.

    Gotta admit though, the A42B13U01 I just got also is pretty close!

    Nice. So there's still Z01 floating in stores. If I may ask, How much did you pay for it?

    I fail to see how Ebay is allowed to continue trading. The majority of Designer brand items there are fake.

    I remember reading an article from Tiffany and Co. in that they purchased a couple of hundred of items from Ebay and revealed that something like 90% of the items were fake.

    The same can be said for Burberry, Prada, D & G, Versace and ALL other Designer brands. If its Designer and cheap and bought from Ebay then its fake. Ebay could not possible be unaware of this, yet they allow these listings to continue.

    If it wasn't for Ebay then buying faked Designer goods, including Fragrances, would be almost impossible.

    I have A42B13U01 too and I'm super happy with it. It lasts and lasts...and projects like a beast. I have people at work comment they could tell i was around their office even though i just walked through a couple minutes before and they never saw me. They said whatever i was wearing smelled awesome and one of the girls was blushing when she was telling me about it. She was asking what i was wearing.

    I'm going Wednesday to my buddy's shop to check out what batches i can find when he gets his creed shipment in this Wednesday.

    I just snagged a MI from 2011 batches and it's frigging awesome too.

    I bought it yesterday and think it's quite good. I can't remember my former Aventus' batch number but it was a little smokier than this one. W01 has a bit more pineapple in it which seems to be good based on regular opinions. However, I personally really loved that smokier smell in my former Aventus. For me they are still the same though; the differences are very minimal.

    How's the longevity and projection w/ this batch for you? About to split a flacon of it

    So where is a good place to order a fruity/pineapple batch from?(sample/decant) Right now I have a smokey...as in all smoke and nothing else batch, and it's not doing it for me. It smells like clear liquid and smoke. I want a known good decant to judge for myself, not a shot in the dark.

    I would like to smell Aventus the way it was meant to be.

    Longevity is the same as before, maybe 7-9 hours. Projection is good too. I just sprayed it and I think it's pretty identical to my former Aventus. Yesterday I thought it has more pineapple in it than before but I don't know. This whole batch thing may have affected on me too for no reason. But like I said before it's still the same Aventus for me.

    I joined just to share this. I just snagged a 4oz tester, sans cap, of S42B13U01 off eBay for $165. It's the best batch of Aventus I have experienced. Fruity blast at first that warms up into an extremely sweet smoke. I woke up this morning and could still smell it. It was very sweet with the fruit still lingering. I'm impressed. I've never had Aventus last this long or smell this good!

    Seller's name is paesano.954. Keep a look out in case he gets more. He listed another after I bought mine and it was purchased very quickly. I almost bought it myself, just because the first was such a hit!

    (I have no affiliation with the seller. I'm just a satisfied customer who wants to share the deal in case someone else can take advantage of it.)

    I actually had this batch.

    Just got rid of it this morning.

    I tried to like it, the beginning is so nice, but an hour later it's dull.

    :/

    I have some good info on Z01 and if anyone's interested... PM me ASAP.

    Really? It pops for me and just says smelling amazing. My wife even made a comment that it's much nicer than any other batch I've had.

    Don't get me wrong, the beginning is wonderful.

    You can go hmmmm all you like, I'm legit. I've been a member of eBay for 10 years. I've been lurking around this forum as a reference for all my Aventus purchases. Feel free to PM me for my personal references and pictures of the bottle I purchased. It has the white metal under the sprayer, the picture is correct, the rest of the label is correct, plus it smells spot on. It seemed worth it to register and share a deal.

    We'll find out tomorrow when I get mine in the mail.
    I doubt an eBay seller would know about Aventus batch variations and come on here and post.
    Either way, if I get a fake, I'll pursue eBay and PayPal to get my money back.
    Plus the seller has a return policy of 14 days.
    If it said no returns accepted, I would have balked for sure.

    Not a big deal.

    Snerp, send me pics if you've got time.

    No worries, you're getting a real bottle.

    IMO though... just don't expect too much from the batch :/

    Thanks man.

    Its a tester.
    Likely a crap shoot on batch. I've read most of the 2012 and 2013 batches are great, I'll take my chances.
    Better to buy the fresh new batches than the old 2010/2011 batches with random quality.
    I've had samples of other batches, to me the differences are subtle, and dont effect my enjoyment.

    Will report in tomorrow evening.

    I have a T01 batch, and am pleased but would like some input from some veteran creed noses that have come across this batch. I have only smelled this bottle, a tester from neiman and a sample from neiman. My take is that this smells much richer in both the smokiness as well as the pineapple note when compared to the tester and sample I came across.

    Default Re: Aventus batch numbers

    I just picked up a 2013 4oz Aventus bottle yesterday and it's really great. Real smooth, long lasting and very nice. I have a bottle from 2011, and while it's the same scent, it's just not as smooth and not as long lasting. I really hope Creed continues to produce this type of batch in the future, because if they do, I'll always be a customer. Oh, by the way, I picked mine up for $185.

    Same batch.
    S42B13U01

    Smells legit.
    Will try now.

    Quick question:

    Is there any difference between S42B13U01 and A42B13U01 other than region sold?

    1 hour in, it smells like Aventus, thats the best way i can describe it.
    I've been sitting on the couch motionless for about 40 minutes now, and my girlfriend could smell me from 15 feet away in the kitchen.
    Its strong stuff, even at only 2 sprays.

    It started out smokey birch with slight sweetness, now its transforming to the usual fruitiness I know Aventus to be.
    I've owned 3 batches now.

    S42B13U01 - 120ml Tester
    C42B12J01 - Decant 25ml of samples
    C42B12E02 - Decant 25ml of samples

    To me, they all smell so close to each other.
    I really dont know what all the fuss is about over batches, unless Creed finally figured it out in 2012.
    I think they all smell great, and they're all very strong to my nose.

    If you asked me to pick out the differences:
    I'd say:
    J01 has less top notes and skips to the mid faster, meaning sweeter sooner.
    E02 is more blended, the smoke and sweetness is balanced more.
    U01 starts out smokier than the others, but the smoke is sweeter, which leads me to believe this is just stronger in formulation than the others.

    With all of that said, these differences are so subtle its not worth the heartache over 2012-2013 batches.
    They're all so close to each other, if you're really picking it apart like some of the above are, you're just trying to make yourself like this sweet, smokey fragrance.

    I think its really good in any batch I've smelled.
    I think in 10 years we'll view it as a unique fragrance, almost its own genre.
    I havent smelled anything similar, and thats why I like it.

    I agree with the above post in that the batch variation is overblown. I will admit, that batches from year to year do vary somewhat but you still get the same overall scent and longevity each year. I had a bottle of 2011 GIT and went through it in a year and then picked up a 2012 bottle. My 2011 GIT bottle was a tad bit richer in scent, with the 2012 a bit more fresher. One thing I believe is that Creed scents change over time, I'm pretty convinced of that. My 2011 Aventus is deeper than my 2013 bottle. The newer Avenues is smoother and has a bit more longevity, but i'm sure over time that will slightly change. In the end, they pan out roughly the same scent.
