Thread: Aventus batch numbers
I dunno if that's the first one or just one of the first but I own a 4oz of that one and it is so good! The 2010 k batches kinda sucked k01 was decent but k02 kinda sucky and k03 just sucky.
Then again, if the total ends up being $1,000 (+$31.65) = $1,031.65.
Now, say eBay wants 10% later on, and PayPal 2.9% + $0.30. $1,031.65 - 12.9% - $0.30 = Then that's probably $898.26 or $898.27. If there was an insertion fee, then maybe take off a little more too. Then take into account the shipping cost (insurance?). Well then, maybe it'd be more likely for 3 (three) discounted Aventus 4ozs with some money leftover. I've never sold any item in the 4 digit range on eBay, and I've read about eBay having a different fee % amount - I'm not sure what qualifies for the differentiation of fee percentage(s).

I was given 14G01 for Christmas and there's absolutely nothing wrong with it.
Any thoughts about batch : LT42C14F01 ?
14K01 is what I just received and it isn't very good. Some other batches I've had last all day long and project very well, but with this batch it doesn't last as long and barely projects.
Are there more guys who has info about the s42c14k01 batch? Is it good or a bad batch?

Before I used to be able to smell it just by turning my head, but I can't even get that at all with this batch even when I spray more.
The good batch I refer to is C42B13R01. Absolutely a ton of compliments every single time I wore Aventus with this batch.
I knew there were going to be batch variations - but I didn't realize by this much.
Give it a month or so, I'm sure it will be fine 👍
My 14G01 was questionable at first, then suddenly, longevity and projection were incredible. Granted, I applied one extra small spray than a few weeks prior but the results were so far removed (it was assaulting co-workers eight feet away six hours after application and leaving a trail even longer 😳 )
Equally, I'm sure the subtleties and the smoke will reveal themselves too, with time, and probably more so as the dominant fruit weakens in the bottle. I have an empty old bottle of Aventus that smells incredibly smokey. Before it ran out, it was fruit and smoke, though steadily more smokey with time. I think Creed is to be applauded for producing such a powerful, fresh and lasting pineapple note with these 2014 batches and unless you really dislike that, perhaps we should make the most of it and enjoy it while it lasts!
As someone else on here has said, there is a pattern - most complaints come from newly acquired bottles. I really do believe the extent of batch variations is blown out of proportion. People are paranoid (and understandably so) because of the amount of money they have parted with to own a bottle of this fragrance but I really don't think we need to worry about longevity or projection when it comes to Aventus. It will come, just give it a little time.
I can buy lots LT42C14A01 and LT42C14C01 in a discount store, but I can not test them. Has anyone had experience with these two lots ?.
I would buy the more fruity and with more longevity.
I bought batch 14k01 today in the shop. I tought fckit i try a bottle. I think its really good for a fresh bottle, smells fresh pineappel and some smoke/leather in the background. I have just one spray to my neck and it is still strong after 9 hours, my girl says she can smell it 2 meters away from me. I smell it to after 9 hours, im verry happy with this bottle and it will even get stronger after time. I have smelled older batches with more smoke but i like this more it has a verry pineappel leathery scent. This is a good batch for sure
I've been working on a fragrance similar to Aventus for a while now. If anyone would like a free sample (UK only please) drop me a PM
Today I went to the store, a person bought the Lot LT42C14C01, I could try it in hand, I was impressed by this smell so fresh, no smell of pineapple, smelled bergamot, blackcurrant, fruity, slightly bitter, no smoke. I own a full bottle of A42B11Z01 as soon as I got home the other hand spatter spray to compare the two. Z01 comes out strong smell of pineapple, a little sweet, with some smoke in the background, but stresses the pineapple. The sillage is similar in both, the longevity will review in the coming hours.
It has come a new batch to the store, now I have to decide between LT42C14A01, LT42C14C01 and S42C14K01.
Any idea how these odors compare?
Hi smokey is the C01 compared to the Z01? I smelled the c01 before and I think it was nice..what are your observations so far!
C01 still smells fresh, a little bitter, does not smell like smoke. Z01 projected more odor, slightly braised pineapple. Z01 is more intense than C01.
The two scents are slightly different, but they are more similar to each other batch that I've had.
Also I have 4 ounces of Lot. A42C12F01, detect smoke and pineapple alike, is a different creature.

I never really bought in to batch variations until now. Back in early December I purchased a 75ML bottle of batch 14D01 and its very fruity in the opening but is dominated more by the wood/musk/vanilla combo in my opinion. It has literally no smoke (I really think Neo might be right about the birch being removed completely). I just purchased a backup bottle and it was recommended to me that I try any batch prior to 2014 so I picked up a 2013 120 ML bottle of 13T01. All I can say is wow. They both smell like "aventus" but the 2013 batch smells deeper, richer, more complex, also a little more "dirty" if you will, because it has the birch note and its quite obvious. Now, after 5-6 hours, the birch fades and they smell EXACTLY the same. Its only for the first 4-5 hours that they smell different.
Now i'm not complaining about the variation, in fact, I like both equally. I feel like my 2014 bottle would be better for the daytime, and the 2013 one better for the nighttime.
Just my .02
Did anyone try batch C42C14H01 ?
