    Default Is my creed aventus authentic?

    Just purchased this from ebay...

    hence my concerns.

    seller assured me of authenticity.

    they have 129 feedback, all positive, including selling various beauty products.



    I paid £100, and so saved myself about 35-40pc off retail

    its a good deal, but not one of those that instantly makes you think fake.

    received it today, it smells good so far and exactly like my official creed sample. however, I am aware of fakes and thought i'd ask here before i start using it and lose any chance of a refund.

    not got the best camera but took shots of the usual places

    many thanks

    I received my bottle today in the UK. Wife loves it, I love it.

    I've examined my box and bottle. Four things that come out that are different apart from the fact mine is a 120ml (4oz) bottle:

    1. I agree with heperd, the lines on the horse are not right. The very back of the man's cloak has a black line running down the edge, unless its rubbed off i dont see that in the pictures, especially on the box shown
    2. the back of the box shows the silver trim around the embossing is way off centre.
    3. The "CREED" writing on mine has bold black over the embossed glass, again it might have rubbed off on yours.
    4. The lot number is very faintly lasered on to the bottom back of the bottle, mine doesnt say "LOT" before it either.

    It might be mine is new and they might have a newer design. p.s, for those interested my batch number: A42B12E01

    Yes, yes it is fake!!!

    Now send it to me and I will dispose of it properly. Lol

    Nah man but enjoy that fragrance, it looks as real as real can get. I have the exact same batch and it is amazing.

    Now if you're still skeptical I am more than willing to take it off your hands for free!!!!

    it's an interesting point, there's nothing out there that i've seen that you can confirm/check against for fakes. I know mine isnt fake, i bought it from a reputable dealer, but the OP bought his from ebay.

    Apart from us, what else can you use to check against?

    The only real way to check if it's fake is to go to a 100% authorized seller (Neiman Marcus,Saks (Maybe???) Creed Boutique) and do a side by side comparison.

    This guy here did a comprehensive break down of a real Creed Box and Bottle check it out......

    Sorry for the lateness but is your batch heavy on the pineapple or is it the "smoky" batch?

    I have the exact same batch and it is blended perfectly man. You get the sweetness of the pineapple and you get the smokiness as well. Think of a grilled pineapple. This is some amazing juice. Hopefully whenever I run out of my current batch they will have some of this batch left. This was my induction with Aventus and this is the only batch I want. Longevity is 12+ hours, and projection and sillage are great as well. I was walking in the mall once and this female behind me said "You smell very good, I smell your scent trail as you walk."

    Hmmmm I only have a 1.7oz of this batch I may want to look into getting a re-up now of this batch.

    I have the Z01 batch number but its not on the bottom. Its on the back of the bottle on the very bottom.
    Can someone confirm if this is real?

    I apologize for thread hijacking.





    EDIT: CONFIRMED!

    Cheapsmells had this batch (A42B12E01) recently in the UK for around £126 / 120ml.

    Not sure if they are still in stock...?

    Has anyone heard of a legit Aventus box with different than normal grammar/spelling? I ordered a bottle from a highly rated 3rd party retailer on Amazon... The box is different than any pictures I've seen. The front logo/text is missing some stuff and there appears to be spelling errors on the back. It also did not come with the little history pamphlet at all. I immediately thought fake and contacted the seller. Got a response saying they order their fragrances from other places like the middle east (which I guess they think explains a different box?) and that all their fragrances are authentic.

    I tried two sprays for the hell of it, got compliments from three girls at work and then my brother asked me if I was wearing cologne about twelve hours later. Batch number on bottle matches a barcode sticker on the box (A42B13R01).

    Thoughts? I'm too much of a noob to tell based on the smell.

    I'm sure it's fine. As long as the ladies like it, right? Maybe some pics of the bottle could help someone confirm its authenticity a bit better.
