If you bought a bottle, keep it for a while and see if it develops.
    Yep, I didnt like the bottle I ordered so I got another one with a different batch number that I liked. I set the first one aside for a while, and now that I smell it again the strong pinapple notes are back (was faint-to-none when I first smelled it). I assume it went through "delivery shock", just like cigars go through when shipped, and needed to "rest" for a while; but who knows.

    Default Creed Aventus - batch issues?!?

    Hi all, I've been reading a bit about the Creed Aventus issues where some batches are vile and some are great...

    So which are good? Which are bad? How to tell without buying first?

    I was just looking this up myself. I found it through a search. You should try that method.

    For the record. Aventus has just arrived on the shleves here and I bought one (75ml / USD 150) LOT C42B11N01.

    The opening is nice - and it seems to be settling pretty nicely. I have had a Creed Card Sample in my drawer for a few months and come to like it so I'll see how this feels over time and if anything interesting comes up add to the thread, altho frankly I'm not that obsessed over this one way or the either. I predict Aventus will be very popular in this part of the world during the long hot summer.

    I have C4210E01 and I really like it, the only complaint I have is the longevity.

    I believe a dept store tester that I tried was from the K batch. Stronggggggg. Having tried tried E, and J, K has very powerful top notes. I think they finally stabilized things at K. Of course, I could be wrong and have been many, many times.

    I just received my Aventus K01 batch from an online store. Upon first spray i get a hit of both fruits and ash. Both very strong. The ash smell reminds me of the smell of cigarette smoke on someones leather jacket. Anyone else get this? Top notes also heavily remind me of Chanel Bleu (which i love).

    Will see how the drydown goes.

    Is this whole discussion about buying an awfully expensive product from a reliable, honest source, or about the chances of winning the lottery?

    Unfortunately if feels like the latter, especially since it seems like there are more than 7 different batches.

    LOT C42B10K02 Unhappy...

    Does anyone have this batch? I bought it from Neiman Marcus. This batch smells very smokey from the get go. I get the pineapple top note but that's about it. No french apples. No black currants. The heart notes are missing too. No rose, jasmine, or patchouli just birch. The sample I received from The Perfumed Court smells amazing. All the fruity top notes are there. As the dry down continues I can detect the birch note but it's held way back allowing plenty of room for the other heart notes to breathe. This is the Aventus I love and was expecting to get. What I ended up with reeks so much of smoke/ash that it gives me a headache. Totally unacceptable. Especially for the amount of $$$ this fragrance cost.

    No smoke, more of a leather.

    Jazznpool, i agree. I gave it another wear this morning and i still only get the slight pineapple opening, then the heavy leather/smokey drydown. Then gets alittle powdery after that. Nothing else. No other notes detected.

    The stuff i have lasts a looooong time on my skin. Its very strong. After i showered etc it is still very detectable on my skin. Very potent stuff.

    I am sure Creed will weep all the way to the bank...

    Really, is there any other major, uber-expensive house reported to be so irresponsibly inconsistent and to screw up so much and so often?

    Oy Vey. Your conclusion is a gross exaggeration of reality. I wonder if you're the same guy that got bounced here a few times under yet a different name. Time will tell. You sound like his twin. He was a Creed hater too. Fortunately, Creed will go on making fine fragrances that many of us can enjoy regardless. It would be great if every batch of every fragrance was perfectly consistent at the highest level...but that is not the real world.

    Obviously the problem with Creed is a lot worse than not being "perfectly consistent at the highest level". Other than that, no reason to be aggressive and silly, Jazz. Answer the arguments, don't call other people names.

    Is there any other major perfume house regarding the products of which separate threads discussing gross batches inconsistencies gather hundreds of posts?

    I received a 4 oz bottle of that batch as a Christmas gift. It was very ashy, and literally no pineapple. See page one of this thread. I was very unhappy with it.

    I'm very unhappy with C42B10K02. Almost identical batch numbers. Do you still have batch C42B10K03? Just wondering if the fruit notes have ripened and the annoying smokey smell has gone away.

    Smile update==> received Aventus Batch #A42B10K04

    A42B10K04 is the batch I just received when ordering a 4oz directly from the boutique. I'll wear it tomorrow and I'll report back in on this thread here while I'm at work. I don't know if this batch anyone has. LOL this is crazy. I'm scared to even open it.

    ya, but I posted yesterday letting people know what batch to expect if you order from the boutique right now. I was hoping my post didn't get moved here because although it pertains to batch numbers, it's also inferring what you would get if you bought aventus at this point in time from the boutique.

    It did get merged because we don't really need two threads about Aventus batch numbers.
