    Where did you purchase them and what did they smell like? Do you have recourse to get a refund? I'm no expert in detecting Aventus fakes, but I don't see anything blatant from the photos that would indicate a fake unless I am missing something very obvious.

    Thanks for replay hednic,
    I have returned one bottle and I could not return the one I opened, I will be able to return the one I use if I am sure its 100% fake, I forgot to say that the box was covered by plastic and I never bought it with plastic before...

    From the pics The left one has a sprayer with "Creed" logo on top, The right picture different sprayer with no creed logo on top.

    I might be mistaken, but I remember reading somewhere that the sprayer/sprayer mechanism has changed recently. Perhaps someone else more knowledgeable can confirm one way or the other.

    Where did you buy the Creed, what made you determine they are fakes other that "you just feel they are"?

    Creed went with a shorter sprayer on later Aventus bottles as they were having problems with the taller sprayers. The new short sprayers no longer have the Creed logo on the top.

    Looks fine, but you should easily be able to tell by the smell.

    You'd need to post pictures of the stem with the spray nozzle removed.

    Where did you buy? Ebay?

    You haven't described if it smells different than your previous Aventus purchases. Did you buy it on eBay?

    I've been through Doha Duty Free, they are very much selling authentic goods but this could be a newer formulation than the version you remember.

    How much did you pay (in USD)? Did you buy it from a shop in the airport? Did you pay for it with a credit card?

    I almost never pay for expensive purchases with cash, always a credit card, that way you can always file a claim with your CC company if such things like this happen.

    $285 is about the going rate, www.fragrancenet.com sells Aventus for $267 shipped in the US, and they are definitely NOT fakes.

    It's hard to imagine duty free shops inside airports selling fake Aventus......

    You'd think, but I wonder if that's the case since it was wrapped in plastic.

    This should be in the "Is My Bottle Fake" Forum. Oh wait, that has yet to be created. LOL.

    It doesn't look fake. The first one has a first generation sprayer mechanism, the second one has a third generation sprayer mechanism. Creed Aventus is known to cause olfactory fatigue. If the smell itself is good I would believe it is a real one.

    I was under the impression that newer versions of Aventus had a smaller sprayer with no logo. It looks fine to me, but you should be able to tell by the smell and how long it last, in my experience Aventus last all day long.

    Doubt they would sell a fake there. Looks real, but up to you if you want to keep it.
    As far as the cellophane, it could of been added by the seller to protect the product. CREED never distributes it with cellophane.
    Let it sit a few weeks, longevity will get better over time.
