    Default Is Aventus hyped up just because it is a Creed?

    I know that Creed has a huge following on here, but if you were to smell Aventus on the average joe walking past you in public five years ago, would you give Aventus a thumbs up or thumbs down?

    It smells good. Its overpriced, but it will make you curious if someone walked passed you wearing it.

    To me it smells like one of the Harajuku Lovers fragrances , so to answer your question , if it was anything other than Creed then no it wouldnt get all the love it does

    ^^^ go on....



    I think it probably gets more fair chance given that it's a creed, but even if ed hardy released it I suspect it would still get some chatter, maybe not quite as much, but it would be talked about.

    Plum Japonais, Italian Cypress,

    Please enlighten us sir and give us some supporting facts if you can. I enjoy wearing Aventus and as others have said it draws compliments. Personally, it would not matter to me if Bozo the clown was the actual nose behind it, partially or in total.

    Default Re: Is Aventus hyped up just because it is a Creed?

    I'm pretty objective when it comes to fragrances. I won't judge a Creed fragrance based on their reputation/notoriety or my previous experiences with Creed.

    For the record:

    I don't like VIW, Himalaya, Millesime Imperial, Tabarome, Original Vetiver.
    I'm so-so on Bois du Portugal. Erolfa.
    I do like GIT, SMW.

    When it comes to Aventus, not only do I think it is one of the best Creed fragrances, I think it is an A+ fragrance, period.

    Personally, I don't think it's necessarily the best smell I've ever smelled. There are some other fragrances out there that smell simply "divine", whereas Aventus only smells "really good". Where it shines is its uncanny ability to draw attention in a way that few other fragrances can. People notice it without it being strong and people can't help but to compliment you on it. This makes it perfect for social situations where you're going to be in crowded areas. Everyone's wearing some generic overworn cologne. Aventus stands out and makes an impression like no other fragrance. Every guy needs a fragrance like this in their wardrobe.

    To answer your question: It probably works both ways. There are Creed lovers probably hype it and Creed haters who would hate it, regardless of the quality of the scent. All you need to know is that it's the real deal. I'd probably buy it at retail price if I had to.

    Default Re: Is Aventus hyped up just because it is a Creed?

    I agree with the last post. This is just an amazing fragrance. I tend to get tired of fragrances quick, but I think this one will always be a staple for me. As long as Creed still makes it. I'm not too keen on Millesime Imperial. I sprayed a crap load on me and never got any compliments. Before I knew it I was depleting my expensive bottle. So I'm letting that age a bit and enjoying my Aventus and GIT. I like Aventus more than GIT because GIT can smell like coolwater to many noses that know no better. Aventus on the other hanf smells like nothing else out there that I can think of. I like to be unique. I'd stray from telling people about this scent, but if we all don't then it won't be around for much longer.

    all over hyped fragrances piss me off. 99.9% of the time it's BS and when I try them out (M7, Geir, Body Kouros) I end up disliking them.

    What about that .1%? That's Aventus my friends. Only thing I'm disappointed in is how they say it is "wrapped in leather around the bottle." That leather is indeed adhesive texturized decal tape. lol

    The council has spoken. Aventus is a very good fragrance.

    No, it's hyped because it's a damned good fragrance. Just read the positive comments on BN about Aventus. Almost guaranteed to get compliments. Your mileage may vary. . . but that seems unlikely, if you read BN commentary closely. It's a good one. Just buy it, and stop worrying about the anti-Creed whining on BN. It's very nice stuff.

    Default Re: Is Aventus hyped up just because it is a Creed?

    IMO it's not overhyped either because there's nothing I've ever smelt quite like it, so that makes it very unique IMO. Also from my experience it's very hard to overapply because it just smells so clean and sophisicated, and I always get noticed when I wear it. Aventus next to Vetiver 48 is my favorite Creed...

    I have issues with Aventus. There's something in the dry down that my nose flat out cannot detect. After an hour or so- I get nothing. BUT i know it's still there because I get comments.

    In answer to OPs question- sure, it gets chatted up in here a lot because it's a Creed to a degree.

    BUT, look at all the comments in this thread alone from people who have gotten good feedback on wearing. No one who says "you smell good" knows it's a Creed.

    If Adventus perfume was released as a Perry Ellis or some other low-level brand I have absolutely no doubt it wouldn't receive 90% of the attention or accolades that it presently enjoys. When it comes to BN there are dozens - if not hundreds - of excellent fragrances that blow the doors off of Adventus that receive zero attention because members here aren't aware of them. Take these gems and put them in a Creed bottle and next thing you know they'd be the talk of the town....

    Don't doubt there are tons of fragrances that might be better. Certainly are for my nose. But I have it. I have worn it. And I have received many compliments on it. No one knew it was made by Creed. I disbelieve the other people who have gotten compliments have made it up.

    If you want to argue it's not a well done scent, great. I can't argue any point about something I cannot smell. But a lot people seem to like the feedback they get when wearing it.

    I think Aventus is special, It follows a certain scent path that would be expected from a niche, but exemplary in a Designer fragrance (think, Guerlain L`instant Extreme, Dior Homme Intense). I love the fragrance, my favorite creed, a modern classic.
    The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel!
    Want to buy! "Nothing?!, well that's a first."

    I agree that Aventus (no 'd') has probably has gotten more attention being a Creed fragrance than if it was some generic brand. However, it's been a mixture of both good and bad attention. When it came out, for every person bouncing off the walls about Aventus' release, there was another person who already wrote it off as another overrated Creed scent.

    If everyone ignored any preconceived notions about Creed, the hype/doubt, and judged Aventus solely on its own merit, we'd still conclude that it's a fantastic fragrance.

    Absolutely agree! To answer, I love the stuff. It is undeniably Creed but if it weren't, I'd still love it. Therefore, brand means nothing. Whats matters is that I enjoy it.

    Then that's what it smells like to you. I gather there are some debates about different batches smelling different, but I'm not personally going to pursue that line of logic very far. There is a strong base of users in here who would disagree with me.

    I'm impartial to it myself. My bottle is invisible to me after the pineapple opening. I gather it's got a lot of oakmoss. Whatever is in it, a lot women seem to like it. You can call me a bullshyter if you wish, but I'm an old guy and some young women who wouldn't normally give me the time of day have commented quite positively on it the few times I've worn it. It pisses me off.

    I believe they're using some new synthetic in there that I'm totally anosmic to.

    I kind of feel the same way, but your description is a bit of an exaggeration of mine. To me, it smells like a pungent, synthetic pineapple and campfire ash background. I think it smells good, but not like it's heaven in a bottle. I can probably name at least 50 fragrances that smell more pleasant to me.

    However, when I wear it, the results are nothing short of amazing. People can't help but to comment on it. I wore it shopping once and had about 7-8 compliments in a three-hour outing (not counting salespersons who will tell you that your Eau de Cat Piss smells great).

    I know it seems pretty vain and superficial to wear a fragrance just to impress people and garner compliments, but for social situations where you're with a bunch of people you've never met, it's a huge confidence booster when you know the people around you love how you smell and they can't get enough. I'm not crazy about how Aventus smells, but its performance is undeniable.

    That's true about Creed, and that's one prejudicial comment you could make about Aventus and would be completely right.

    I've worn two different Aventus decants, both smell noticeably different, but same results. I'm afraid to buy a full bottle because of this, but I'll be making the leap of faith very soon.

    Default Re: Is Aventus hyped up just because it is a Creed?

    Yes, it is hyped up, because it's a Creed. It's basically a decent scent that may have hit a popular vibe and thus garners compliments, it's not very well constructed (longevity - way inferior to a technical marvel such as bargain bin Monsieur Balmain), nor made from exquisite materials that would merit notice (like real Mysore pineapple or so). And the company can't guarantee a consistent product either. And yes, plenty of other mediocre fragrances have their hypes, too, so it's nothing entirely Creed-specific.

    It's not overhyped. The people who have given me compliments have no clue what Creed is! They just smell something great and compliment it. Not my favorite cologne, but one of my most complimented.

    Hate the game, but don't hate the player! Aventus is a clear-cut winner. And of course, it costs way too much, as Creeds always do. If we really sat back and thought about it, more than $50 for a cologne is a crime. But yet, we pay it.

    I love Hermes Eau d'Orange Verte for its fruity chypre vibe, so likewise I really like Aventus. Natural smelling fruity top notes (red apple and pineapple) and ultimately dries down to a very light chypre base. It's a winner in my book. Will eventually purchase a bottle.

    Yes but don't you really love Eau d'Orange Verte only because it's Hermes? I think we all really know that's the reason.
    That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

    Huh??

    It's the only Hermes fragrance that I like. I bought it solely because of the way it smells. Otherwise I don't really care for the Hermes house.

    What are you getting at? You got me confused with someone else?

    I think he is directing the rationale of your statement to the OP's question.
