    I suspect that the pineapple is still there, but I have become anosmic to it and can only smell the smoke. When I breathe on my wrist, the pineapple note becomes noticable for a minute.

    I'm enjoying this more than usual today. I'm very tired and it's pepping me up. I find that some colognes work better when we lower our expectations and just let them "be".

    Thank you, Thank you, and goodnight
    So it's not for you. That doesn't discredit the people who do think it's worth it's price. It's all subjective whether a perfume/cologne is worth it's price. I personally like Aventus. I have better frags, though. Much better. But it is a very nice masculine scent. And for some reason, women really dig it.
    Live and let live.

    That. And you can always let it sit in it's box in your sock drawer and age for a month or two. Let the ingredients mingle. They will change and get more complex. This is common knowledge with the "E-cigarette and flavored 'juice'. The ingredients for the nicotine juice that gets vaporized has to mingle for a week or so to mature.

    I'd wager it's the same with fracrances. I have a bottle of Aventus in my sock drawer and a small one by my bathroom sink that's 95% full. When it's gone, I'll try the stored Aventus, which I wasn't a fan off due to no longevity. Bought from FragranceNet. I now know to only buy Creed from the boutique.

    My belated reply, with thanks for the review: hyped or not, your description of the notes is pretty accurate, diversified and insightful- it does provide orientation to the ones venturing into their first experiences with Aventus.

    Aventus is an exceptionally fine fragrance.

    I have a decant of this batch and I bought it reluctantly because I really hated Aventus when I sampled it before. However, I absolutely love this batch. The scent comes off very masculine but not overbearing. I can see it being versatile enough to wear at any time. I'd love to buy a 4oz bottle on amazon or somewhere for a slight discount but I'm too scared to get a batch similar to the one I tried before. :/

Well made and one of the creed fragrances that actually lasts. Every gentleman should look into Aventus.
    utterly spot on! kinky scent!
