Thing is, I like what I like...and I like Aventus.
Infact, I think Aventus smells great, and I especially love the hint of blackcurrant that snakes in and out throughout it's lifespan.
If you don't like Aventus, that's cool as well.
Vive le difference etc

lots of people like it!
The guys at Ilum Deam know what make Aventus so exceptional apparently.

Theres a $9.90 cologne that came out in 2001 entitled "Dashing : Pineapple for Men", try it what a striking resemblance, after success of aventus, i was told dashing is reissuing it again as Royal Dashing for Men.
Like most Creed fragrances, I'd be more inclined to talk about what makes it so unexceptional. Sad, tinny little things.
I like Aventus because it's bad to the bone. Period. I have
paid full price and discounted prices.
None of my friends wear it - and they have started making comments about my 'musk'. That alone
is worth $300 retail. Screw pineapple and smoke. It smells like an elitist know it all....with patchouli on the

Thats one thing ive noticed about Aventus, it is my first Creed purchase, and it is the first fragrance ive ever owned that feels like it has been made by someone with impeccable taste.
Now, that could be an illusion of grandeur or placebo effect on me from the very expensive price tag, but i dont believe it is.
I dont want something thick, heavy and cloying to my skin all day, i want something fresh, different, distinctive.
I am actually looking forward to wearing it out in the next few weeks to see if i get any opinions, in favour of or negative.
I shant be fishing for compliments or suggesting to people that im wearing something new, I shall have to wait and see what happens...
It does what it does well. However what it does I don't consider all that impressive IMHO.
Okay, I thoroughly tested Creed Aventus during past days, thanks to a decant kindly provided by a friend.
In my opinion it's an "average" perfume, sold with an offensive price tag, similarly to many "niche" perfumes.
My suggestion: don't pay such high amounts of money for these overrated scents. There are plenty of discontinued perfumes much , much better than these "niche" frags.
Until I've smelled it and my mind has been blown I'd go with the hype.
For Sale: Gengis Kahn, Mona d' Orio, Penhaligons.
As many as some trying to deny it, men DO love fruity scent. Try to ask the people who love Aventus would they still buy if it doesn’t have the pineapple note?
The same phenomenon you see in fruity aquatic Acuqa di Gio.
