smells real + looks real = is real
Thread: 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

Looks good to me.
The lines on the guys cape on the horse look wrong to me.
Want to trade - Chanel Platinum Egoiste for Dior Eau Sauvage...
Your golden, looks legit to me.
Looks good to me bro, the serial #'s match and the bottle and box look legit. Enjoy the Aventus. It's my new favorite fragrance.
Hellooooo.......this is not fake, check the batch code!!! Your conscience playing a good trick on you. its normal, ebay is a hotbed for thieves and scums but not everyone there is a crook, have a nice day and enjoy ur new frag.
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!!!!
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?
Hmmmm I only have a 1.7oz of this batch I may want to look into getting a re-up now of this batch.
Many thanks. I have a chance to buy this batch today and I will do so.
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.

Definitely legit. My VIW bottle has identical markings and info placement.

Jean-Paul Gaultier Le Male
Thierry Mugler Pure Malt
It's only authentic if Napoleon wore it.
can you tell me where you can find it online from EU,UK shops? looking for number "A42B12E01"
Cheapsmells had this batch (A42B12E01) recently in the UK for around £126 / 120ml.
Not sure if they are still in stock...?
Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...
I need to see a pic of the spray hole.
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.
