    A waste of money, maybe, does it smell bad, certainly not. I think Aventus smells very good, but it's not the most unique fragrance out there, but then not a lot of Creeds are.

    I do not get similarities btw Aventus and the Bvlgari, however once i was wearing Aventus, it was mistaken for Platinum Egoiste.
    Current top 5:
    1. MDCI Chypre Palatin
    2. Guerlain Arsene Lupin (Dandy)

    3. Roja Dove Enigma Parfum Pour Homme
    4. Roja Dove Vetiver Extrait
    5. Guerlain Heritage (any formulation)

    Fruity masculine ? Melon ?

    Dude u HAVE to try Carolina Herrera Chic for men.

    It has a lush , juicy , yummy Watermelon note in it and on my skin is quite dominant with some subtle spicy notes in the background. A Lovely composition with above average longevity and sillage.

    Aventus is the best thing i've ever smelt in my entire life. I'd sell all my other fragrances if I had to to own Aventus.

    To me it smells like a sports fragrance from the 90s. Not really a fan. I had such high hopes too!

    I love threads like this. Good press/bad press, no matter. Still creates a buzz and interest to get people to check things out for themselves which ultimatly leads more buyers to purchase Aventus and therefore keep it in production for us who LOVE and appreciate such a fine fragrance. I checked out Aventus from reading the + and- on basenotes and I'm So glad I did. It's so worth it "for me". It was not a waste of money "for me".

    I seriously don't see why someone would spend $50 for Bvlgari Pour Homme Extreme.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    Creed's to me smell like scented water, even their oud seems watered down. I can't get past it. But I guess the whole brand of Creed has never appealed to me, their scents just top that off. Amateur overview I know, I don't care though

    I like Aventus, and it's not a bad value based on how potent it is and how long it lasts. 1 spray of this stuff lasts all day and it has a lot of projection and sillage too.

    you could also try Polo Blue for a nice Melon note that stays long .

    Longevity and sillage are very good as well .

    YALL WILL NOT BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED TO ME AT SCHOOL TODAY!!!

    So... I decided to wear the Creed Aventus to school. As soon as I got there, I went to the lunch counter to buy some tea, as usual. There were four lunch ladies working behind the counter. Literally three seconds after I walked up to the counter, all four of the ladies FROZE in their steps. They were in awe, and their jaws dropped!
    They were like... "You smell SOO GOOD", "I can't believe how GOOD you smell", "You smell AMAZING"! They just kept going on and on!

    They asked what I was wearing. I told them Creed Aventus. They said they'd never heard of it, but they absolutely LOVE it!
    I told them I hated it, and they insisted that it smelled amazing on me. I had been dealing with these women for about 6 months now, and this is the first time I'd ever had any type of reaction like that. All 4 of them were seriously aroused! I could see it in their faces.

    One of them said, "You're lucky this counter is between us, because if it weren't, I'd be all over you!"

    Guys, seriously!!! Why can't I smell it the way they smell it? This is driving me crazy!
    One thing I should point out is that they were cooking while all of this was happening, so the Creed Aventus apparently projected and cut through the dense smell of food. The ladies picked it up immediately without a problem.

    I have both of them. I hate Bvlgari Pour Homme Extreme, so I automatically hate Creed Aventus.

    I seriously don't see why someone would spend $250 for a Creed fragrance when they could get the same scent for about $50.
    I am SO HAPPY that I didn't waste my money on a full bottle of Creed.
    I'm currently wearing both colognes (one on each hand) and they smell the same.
    I hope I'm not the only one who's noticed this.
    The next Creed I'll sample will be Silver Mountain Water.
    You hate one scent that Aventus smells like and Aventus as well, you dont see why someone would pay $250 for a Creed, yet you are still sampling two scents that you hate and still plan on sampling another Creed, when you don't see why someone would pay $250 for a Creed. That doesn't really seem sensible to me, but O.K. I'd be lying if I said that I hadn't totally dismissed a scent and then later loved and found value in it. Maybe you'll enjoy and find value in another Creed.
    As far as Aventus being a waste of money, your correct, if you buy it and can't enjoy it, that would be a waste of money. I bought it and I enjoy Aventus, so no waste here. Aventus is so very predictable, sometimes when I know I'm going to be "close" to someone, I put a small amount on, and I be darn if Aventus hasn't always elicited a positive and favorable response, it works every time.

    I consistently get compliments with Aventus. Now try wearing Bulgari Pour Extreme and see if you get the same compliments.

    Aventus does smell like piss.. I'm not going to lie.
    When I first got it.. I got caught up in all the Basenotes hype... bought a few decants from different batches which I'm stuck with now. I could never wear it.. might just be my age group (20 year old male.)

    Compared to MI and VIW (both of which are great fragrances... not excellent... but decant worthy)... Aventus is a pass for me.
    Top 5:
    1) La Nuit De L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent
    2) Lumière Noire pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian
    3) Royal Oud by Creed
    4) One Million by Paco Rabanne
    5) Allure Homme Sport by Chanel

    You could've removed "aventus" from your thread title and this still would be the truest thread in basenotes history.

    If you're being a pedant (rather than a droll predictable anti Creeder) you could have removed Creed and Aventus and replaced them with Fragrance.

    A waste of money? Subjective but so is anything you don't like, whether it costs $250 or $2.50. Personally it's worth every penny to me, and although I respect those who don't care for it the fact remains I do, and am happy to pay for it. I like it and at the end of the day that is truly all that matters.

    Yo, yo yo... you must promise us to slather up in the Bvlgari and ask the lunchroom ladies what they think. C'mon now, have some good natured fun with it. Tell them you think it smells just the same as the one they did backflips over and see what they have to say. Report back, young man!

    I'm a fan of Polo Blue. It is a great cologne and it's very calming. The name is perfect b/c it really does smell blue, if that makes any sense.
