    I have that same batch. I can't smell anything after 2-3 hours.. I have to spray about 6x on my shirt for it to last 5-6 hours. Some people here in the forums have mentioned that it takes a while for the juice to "age" inside the bottle, but I find that hard to believe.

    Which is the 2012 E01 batch? The one I have purchased is A42B12E01. I get a lot of smokey ash in this one but it could just be my nose.

    sorry i meant to say 2011 z01 is good and the 2012 e01 is A42B12E01 and i found it very balanced and i liked it, the z01 had the stronger pineapple which was nice.

    I too have batch A42B12C02, but as I mentioned earlier, I don't understand why people dislike it. The smell is fabulous and the longevity & projection is pretty decent. To each their own I guess.

    I have this batch is very balanced and has lots of pineapple, I can get bursts of pineapple after 10 hours, the perfume sample I had been testing more smoke but I also liked.

    +1 for A42B12E01, just got a bottle and it's great, nice pineapple blast on opening and lovely ashy heart with whiffs of pineapple now and then. Very happy with silage / longevity

    There is already a huge thread on Aventus batch variations: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/267...-batch-numbers

    But there isn't 1 single post that sums up everyone's feedback. The general conclusion is, 2010 batches are hit and miss with scent, longevity, and projection... while 2011 batches are all extremely good. All reports are the 11X02 batch is an abnormally potent, great-smelling Aventus on steroids. Too bad it only comes in 500 ml flacons, lol.
    Where did you get this info? There was a basenoter selling an X02 batch in a 4oz bottle.

  14. #1514

    Default Re: Aventus batch numbers

    I doubt we're going to see more batch variations. If you look at the history of the scent, it seems clear what happened.

    Early 2010: the scent is created. It smells fantastic.

    Mid 2010: the scent becomes a best seller. Creed can't keep up with demand. Rather than allow it to sell out and be unavailable until they can properly source ingredients and make more without sacrificing quality, they do whatever they have to keep it on the shelves. The new batch is different but close enough, right? Hello smokey batch.

    By 2011, they got their act together in terms of keeping up with supply and demand.

    2012 batches seem to have been very consistent. Actually, the 2011 batches were pretty consistent too, except there was one that had a sharper/stronger pineapple (the X02 batch).

    I could be wrong, but I think the whole batch variation thing is blown waaaaaaaaay out of proportion.

    The 2010 K04 batch was extra smokey and weak.
    The 2011 X02/Z01 batches were heavier on the pineapple and longevity.
    Everything else seems to have been really consistent.

    Just recevied mine, ordered it through Ebay seller ($50 cheaper cheapest 'major' online retailer and $60 cheaper than Strawberrynet) and got this batch.

    As stated above, seems really balanced, not too smoky yet, huge pineapple burst on spray but it has quickly mellowed out. Seems quite spicey actually after settling on my skin. Lovely

    They are very different these two batches?

    Default Re: Aventus batch numbers

    Can't comment on K01, but longevity of E01 blows my official carded sample out of the water. So I'm very happy with it. I get 6 hours projection, and still a skin scent after 12+ hours, with 3 sprays. Projection for first 4 hours is crazy.

    Ok so i'm now officially a believer in Creed batch variation. Just received my second bottle as my first was running low - tried them both on skin - it's unmistakable.

    E01 (my new bottle) is noticeably darker and smokier than my older bottle in the opening. My old bottle (THINK it says N01? hard to see - very faint now) smells like a fruit bowl next to E01! Although I have to say they do start to resemble each other a lot more when they dry down. At this point, the average person wouldn't tell the difference if not smelling them side by side.

    I'm pretty sure you got the number wrong. As Jouho said, you'll want to check it again.

    Aventus doesn't come shrink wrapped, so no worries there. Also, the cap on mine is really loose too. In fact, I stopped using the cap to prevent myself from ever accidentally picking the bottle up that way. It's loose. Is the sticker label starting to peel on your bottle? Mine is. Isn't Creed quality control awesome? Luckily, the scent only costs a few dollars. Oh, wait...

    Really, it all comes down to how it smells, and Aventus smells wonderful. Enjoy it.

I own 3 batches right now A42B11N01, A42B11Y01, and C42B11X02 and they all smell identical. Excited to see what this "bad batch" smells like. I'm sure I'll love it like I have every other batch.
