Thread: Aventus batch numbers
C4210E01 is by far the best batch of Aventus...
I'm not in the group that wants no ash and all fruit, i dont mind a bit of the leather/ash vibe as long as its well blended and fruits stick out more. There has to be a batch out there!! lol
Can any of you Aventus guys tell me if you can use lot number to determine which batch of Aventus you're getting? I have a chance to buy a 4 oz flacon for $220 USD shipped. The lot number is
Seller says it's the 'newest' lot number, and that it's from the Creed NYC boutique.
Does that tell us anything? In one of the 'Aventus isn't all that' threads there's a bit of complaining about how the formulation is hit and miss and you never know which version you're getting. At $200+, i would like to know.
Any comments are appreciated.
Sorry guys, I almost always use the search function before posting. Thanks to kron for this
Got a new 250ml flacon this morning for the latest basenotes split: C42B11N01
First thing, I've got this flacon sat on my table a metre and a half away from the computer and its absolutely dominating the Czech & Speake no88 I'm wearing today.
The top notes are excellent and the Pineapple/Apple peel/Currant have a richness which supass the 10ml decant C4210E01 that I've got. The heart notes are a little more prominant and this also has more evident depth than my 10ml as the basenotes are well blended and compliment the whole composition.
It feels overall more masculine.
I might do another split in a week as I quite like this one now.
good to see that 2011 looks like a good year for this great Frago
Current top 5
1. Creed Vintage Tabaróme
2. Maison Francis Kurkdjian Absolue pour le Soir
3. Comme des Garçons 8 88
4. Montale Black Musk
5. Profumum Antico Caruso
When I tried it it lasted about 80 minutes on me. Way too much.
Thank you, MT, I am relieved, have a nice day yourself.
Aventus may be a lot of things, but surely not poor longevity lol. i woke up the next day with it still on my wrists!
Don't get me wrong, I love the longevity I get from the more masculine base of C42B10J01, but it could stand a little more optimism/sweetness/brightness to it.
I'm very eager to try the newest lot number you describe, and am contemplating blind buying a flacon of that lot if indeed it is that strong.

I'd love to be in on a split if there is one!
Does anyone know what batch they are selling at Creeds online store in the US?
We've been receiving a lot of requests from basenotes members for the 8.4 oz. lot number so I though I would post the answer here. The only ones we currently have in stock are C42B10K04. We received these particular bottles about 1 - 2 months ago.
