    very ashy, zero fruit.

    Last week I went to Neiman Marcus and found out there are new bottles of Aventus starting with the letter S? Has anyone recently bought Aventus that came from a lot/batch starting with the letter S?

    You should just get a decant and test it out.

    Sorry to hear that Doc. I would have bet that newer batches of Aventus would be problem free. I'll have to sample that lot to see what it is like. I'm glad to have purchased a good supply of the C42B10J01 lot when it was around.

    Hey folks how would you compare Aventus batch #A42B10K02 TO #C4210E01?

    If anyone has batch A42B10K02, and would like to trade a decant of it for a decant of C4210E01, I'm down.

    For now I can give a detailed bit on C4210E01. So far, C4210E01 has the least ashy/smokey/birch note of all the batches I've tried, and the most Black Currant and Apple, a very "peel like" Apple note, closest to Cereus #4's "Realistic Apple Peel" of any Aventus batch. C4210E01 is my favorite fruity batch, as I wasn't a huge fan of the pineapple, but love the Apple peel, coniferous Juniper Berry, Bergamot, and the cassis is ok I guess. A4210E01 is probably the best equal balance of all 3 major fruit notes (Apple, Cassis, Pineapple), but I slightly prefer C4210E01, for letting the apple peel shine thru. I've tried all Aventus batches listed on basenotes either thru first hand testing or decants, except the new batches beginning in "S", and batch A42B10K02. As well as two batches I have no interest in trying: C42B10K04, A42B10J02....both of which have been reported by multiple noses I trust here and on crystal flacon as very weak, ashy batches. Thanks to everyone out there on youtube and crysta flacon and especially here on Basenotes for being honest, and holding Creed accountable for such inconsistency.

    A42b10k03 is rich in Pineapple and "Vanilla", not so much on apple or birch...... is A42b10k02 likewise, or with a different emphasis ?

    Sometimes I think all this batch number stuff is just people's imagination, but then I remember trying like hell to find a bottle of Himalaya that smelled like the sample someone gave me-- I must have tried ten different Himalayas, including a tester at Nieman Marcus, and I had to just give up and call it a day. I know the frustration.


    As much as I want to call it a quality control issue, I just don't know. Obviously, their perfumes do contain some synthetics-- so there shouldn't be any variances there. With natural materials, of course, there are always differences.

    For what it's worth, when I sampled Aventus at NM, I didn't care for it at first, because the topnotes were kind of weak and bland, but then an hour later I really started to notice the drydown-- it had a lot of birch tar smokiness, which I liked quite a bit. I was expecting one thing but got something else with this one. Don't know what the batch number was.

    How about everybody call Creed NY tomorrow and complain about Aventus batch variation. I'm sure with 100 calls in one day, they'll get the message.

    Done. Everybody call when you read this for the next few weeks. A general complaint is strength/longevity....and general inconsistency and weakness/lack of strength....in aventus and much of the rest of the line for the last 18-24 months. Add whatever else you feel. But do call.

    Dullah,



    Excellent post and I agree that C4210e01 is probably the best batch yet, the new one I received A4210BK02 is very good also but I notice I'n the middle notes the birch is a lot stronger and smells almost like rubber Not a huge difference but you can definitely
    tell the difference.

    I respectfully disagree sir, there are definitely differences I'n variation when it comes to notes, sillage, and longevity. I will say this though I only notice batch differences with aventus, mi, and git. The rest have been extremely consistent for me over the years. I cant understand why though....

    Those also happen to be their most popular ones..... if they are selling like hot cakes, they have to make more, and they are decreasing quality with mass production to inflate their revenues.

Obvously this is not Ash's is fault by any means since he has no control of this, but i am extremely disappointed to have spent my hard earned money and stuck with something i don't know if i will be wearing. I still have some of my 30ml decant left that i received from Dullah back in December and it's like im smelling almost 2 different scents.

    I will give this a full wearing and report back to you all , but dam i do not want to walk around smelling like an fkn ash tray

    Plunging down all this money for an inconsistent product that smells like fruit.
    If you want to smell fruity, go for a new designer fragrance.

    I don't want to piss off Creed fans or Aventus fans, but this amateurism of Creed makes no sense at all.
    I wouldn't even want to spend 1 dollar on such a company.

    Maybe this is the way Creed is producing their fragrances.
    I can surely see some inconsistency, depending on the person's feet and how sweaty they are.

    Sshhh, be careful, remember Woody Allen's semi-obscure, quasi-futuristic masterpiece Sleeper.

    At some point the "hero," played by Woody Allen himself, uses a humongous strawberry to kill a man.

    you can see what a Royal Banana looks like (0:35).

    Do you realize what kind of hurt a Creed Royal Pineapple could cause, in the angry yet capable hands of disgruntled pseudo-royalty?

    The mind shudders.

    I am giving my decant it's first wearing today and im having trouble detecting it on me. It's batch C42B10KO3. I'll let you know if anyone else notices it on me, but i sprayed it on pretty heavey but really can not detect any fragrances on me, so i guess i'm suffereing from what others have mentioned where the scent comes and goes?

    Just got back from the King of Prussia Mall in PA. I first stopped at Nordstrom's and asked if they had Aventus. The woman said, "I wish we did. We had three people already today asking for it". I knew then that finding an old batch would be difficult. After that I went to Neiman Marcus where I had purchased a bottle of C4210E01 the first week it was available. I told the woman I was looking for some of that batch number. We checked all their bottles, but no go. Every bottle from the smallest to the flacons were from known bad batches. Of course the tester was C4210E01. I should have taken it and ran. lol There will be some disappointed people who smelled the tester and got the ashy bottles.

    So far this has not been a good experience for my first wearing. I literally detect zero fragrance at all and haven't all morning. I just feel like i'm not wearing anything. I asked someone to take a sniff and they said it smelted great, however i smell NOTHING.

    Whats the enjoyment if i can't even smell it? This is not the case with the other decant i have. I sprayed pretty heavy as well.

    So what batch number amd i tryign to track down if i want the fruity notes and the strength that some people have that gives them 8-10+hrs? I don't mind the ash note but i just want a batch better blended so i can detect the fruits as well. Currently i have a 50ml decant of C42B10KO3, and i feel this one has the pineapple note but it seems to come and go a bit and is a bit too ashy but not as bad as some other batches.

    have only ever gotten one bottle of a certain creed so far. GIT, MI, and Aventus. I am waiting till the next time when I buy all new bottles for these and see if there really is SUUUUUUUCH a big difference in the fragrance. It makes no sense to give a fragrance a name if it always smells different every time you buy it? Right? It shouldn't have a name brand such as Creed, but instead something like morphological EDT

    Have you tried to contact Creed yourself?
    We can expend hours and hours discussing this subject, however I believe Creed will be more than happy to answer your enquiry.

    I contacted the Creed boutique and the current batches of 4oz bottles of Aventus they have in stock are the ones that have been labled on this site as the "ashy" batch with little to no fruit. It sucks that we don't have more options of places to purchase this, i checked with Neimens as well, and the batch they have falls in this category as well. I guess there are no current batches circulating that are worthy of purchasing? I really would like to find a pretty good one so i can just buy it and get this over with! I do like the scent a lot and still enjoy the decant of C42B10KO3, but i want more fruit!

    Look at the Creed website and contact the Creed counter of the other sellers such as the selected Bloomingdales, Nordstroms and Saks. I picked up a flacon of Aventus C42B10J02 that way when other channels were out of stock. I hope that helps.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Is C42B10J02 a batch with good longevity and fruits?

    I'm very satisfied with it and made a point to get enough to last a long time. If you're not happy with that lot, you won't be happy with any.
