    Default Did I purchase a fake Creed Aventus?

    I had been researching online last night about lot numbers and today I bought one that nobody had mentioned anything about. It smells good and the box and bottle look legitamate but I can't seem to find anybody with the same lot number as I have.

    It is S42B11Y01

    Any thoughts? Do I need to post pictures?

    Thank you for your time !

    Pictures are always a good thing.

    With the expertise of the BN community the Creed Aventus owners will certainly be able to differentiate between real and fake.

    I wonder why Creed inspires such paranoia? I've read so many threads like this. It's expensive but so many others are too.

    I don't know man that bottle looks kinda suspect. I'll tell you what, decant 25ml of your Aventus and mail it to me so I can tell you myself if it's fake or not.

    Because it is counterfeited a lot. I would bet there are more creed fakes than any other niche frag house out there.

    Creed changed the sprayers twice in the last year. First change is like yours with no creed on the sprayer. The most recent sprayer is the same only now has a collar around the sprayer and the cap snaps on. So no worries.. enjoy ;-)
    I came here to talk fragrances & chew bubblegum.. and i'm all out of bubblegum.

    well documented. They made a change to the atomizer. It pops up randomly.

    Lol, i have sorta stopped collecting. I am still into them and i buy them but in most cases i just keep five or six and turn that small collection over. Knives can be just as if not more expensive than fragrance so i cant keep everything i buy or else id be done with the hobby in a matter of days. Just lost one of my five four legged friends and since then it kinda took the steam out of everything. Its funny i am on the exact opposite of you with fragrance. I stop in places here and there and sniff new stuff but literally nothing wows me anymore. Its bee like four total stinkers in a row. Id love to just walk into a store one day and just be so blown away by it that im back in the game. Last thing i bought that i actually liked was issey miyake leau d' issey Yuzu. I also got issey intense which is ok but not as nice as yuzu. Aventus is still king with me but i only wear it once or twice a month so that when i do wear it I enjoy it. I actually thought to check in on this place because i noticed a few of my faves are gettig dangerously low. And its like do i buy replacements or do i try something new? Decisions decisions.
