    He was a really cool guy and was very knowledgeable about Creed.
    Oud and Vetiver are really nice as well.
    Oud has a refined smokiness and Vetiver is such a clean scent.
    He also said to be very very cautious about buying Creed on Ebay and Amazon. If a deal sounds too good to be true, watch out.

    Has anyone received fake items online before?
    Are there any legit places that have good deals?

    @ KL863 - You have to be very cautious when buying Creed online. This thread may be of some help: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/283...sion-Creed-SMW)
    And, if you use the search, in the upper, right-hand side of the banner, you will retrieve several other, relevant threads.

    Enjoy your Aventus.

    Wow, thanks!
    Yeah... I'll just save my $ and buy retail. I'd hate to go through the hassle of trying to get a refund.
    I'm sure this bottle of Aventus will last me awhile. Plus my Xmas bonus is not too far away!

    I appreciate your help.

    I think we need an Aventus sub-section.

    Colognes that I can't easily smell on myself are really frustrating for me. I wore 2 sprays of Creed OS today and I did not have to worry about it at all!

    I have two bottles of Aventus, but it is irritating in this aspect.

    Aventus is amazing, especially that smell that is left on clothes days after application.
    Enjoy it!
    Agreed. They do smell awesome after days!

    As for Aventus, I find that spraying it around the base of my neck works for me (one more spray on my arm and dab, so 2 in total). I put my shirt on straight afterwards and I can detect it throughout the entire day.
    Lol I have started doing that. Actually I put on shirt/t-shirt then spray under it while holding my breath. Then I do one on back of neck or on upper arm, still holding breath. I think its that initial blast that gives major olfactory fatigue.

    Love both Royal Oud and Original Vetiver. OV is simply awesome in summer heat.

    Agreed! The way I have been spraying Aventus now, I can smell it on me for hours. Its not as strong but I can smell it and at times get wafts of it when I least expect to.

    Time to break out the bottle of OS as the weather is cooling down a bit now. It lasts on me for ages and I can smell it all the time!

    So I decided to try something just to see what happens. Had a friend try Aventus, just 1 spray to upper arm, while I stepped outside. Then I had him walk outside and I got this really strong smell of Aventus from about 7-8 feet away. Mind you there was no wind either! So the result is, I am sticking to 2 sprays of this juice, 3 max!
