    Default The eagle has landed! Creed Aventus is at Beautyencounter.com!

    2.5 OZ for $230. Yawn. But, still...it's at a discounter!

    Same price at Nieman Marcus for that size. IMO people are better off getting it from there.

    Agreed. Needs to be cheaper, but I've never been duped at beautyencounter.com. They are legit.

    It's been there for like a month now. I never bothered posting about it because the discount isn't that great.

    Beautyencounter has become a fairly half-assed company. After receiving new formulations of fragrances advertised as vintage (and verified as such on the phone) on two separate occasions, I rarely buy anything from them. They used to be clear in their distinctions between vintage and new, but after speaking to them a few times it doesn't sound as if they have the same awareness. I pointed out several inaccurate photos to them, and they told me that they would update them, but I recently noticed that the same photos are still up there. I believe they're under new management.

    I'm sure you'd have no problem with the Aventus, but for that price I'd definitely use Neiman Marcus. Either way, I'd never pay more than half of the retail price for any Creed.

    I guess I've just been lucky in my dealings with them. Maybe they've deteriorated. Whatever, the Aventus will have to go much lower to get my cash.

    They are selling the C batch I hope not. Just go to Neimans and get some samples and a few whiffs. If not order from Neimans, they have a pretty liberal return policy. They better !

    Let the discounters debate!
    Aventus is worth $207
    Aventus is not worth two oh seven!
    Is too.
    Is not!!!
    It's plastic in a bottle.
    Is not because it's my fave!!!
    Will Aventus be discounted further when it's bottled in a dime store plastic pineapple bottle?
    By then, its iso-sorbitol snortontin will be reformulated to N-butyl acetate and propanolol.

    Etc.

    Or, in short, Chuck's inbox is going to fill with 19 pages worth of replies. LOL!!

    Harold Sun says Prince Williams will be wearing Aventus on the big day. Creed is made in London no ? We catch on eventually.

    There is also objective evidence that he actually wears Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet! And she wears Dior Dune! However, I did hear that KM owns Creed, too. So it wouldn't surprise me if he's enjoying Aventus.

    I'm starting to get the hint that you're not too crazy about Aventus.
