    Just wanted to chiime in to share that i contacted roughly 9 retailers in Florida, primaily south florida since they hae so many high end department stores andall of them were carrying the known bad batches. Looks like it maybe be pretty impossilbe to find a good batch. Might have to look outside of Florida since i'm sure the turnover rate of product is very rapid here and look into a smaller town who may be carrying an older batch....yes i know, wishful thinking lol

    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

    C4210E01 is one of the first releases. Doubt you can find it other than a trade or buy from someone.

    Default Aventus experts - identify pineapple/apple batches by lot number?

    Hi guys

    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

    C42B10K03

    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.

    Nik

    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.

    I agree but it also has poor longevity. I got mine at Neiman shortly after Aventus came out.

    Yeah, that's the only knock on C4210E01, is the weaker than optimal longevity. It's the best proportion of bergamot (I think they use less now or the sunscreen ingredient in newer batches maybe lessens the bergamot impact), apple, currant I think, as evidenced at high application. And I like the fact that the base, while weak in C4210E01, is very bright and fresh, not too much birch or otherwise heavy/masculine notes.

    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.

    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.

    The batch is A42B11N01. I bought the 4 oz flank last week from the Creed Boutique. Overall it smells great. I smell a lot of blackcurrant in the opening but I'm okay with that.

    This is the same batch number i received from a recent flacon split. Does have pineapple in the opening but its tamed down from earlier batches. I do notice that the pineapple accord does come back at different times of the day, like its playing tricks with my nose but overall it does have the smokey/ash note in there for sure

    I can definitely detect the pineapple note but I also get the smokey/ash note in almost equal proportions. At least the smoke/ash note isn't as prominent as the batch I bought last month.
