    I'm crazy in love with IB, and Aventus is just so so for me. That being said I would wear Aventus to the meeting.

    IB is just too much for meetings IMO.

    I wouldn't recommend Aventus in this scenario, very easily could come off as unprofessional. Go with a more subtle option

    A light application of Aventus would be appropriate.

    Agree with ^

    Just a light application of Aventus would do just fine

    Invasion Barbare is just beautiful and sophisticated. Vibrant, impressively confident, yet restrained. I wouldn't wear it to work on a normal day - but hey, this sounds like an important meeting, so splurge!

    And though I admittedly do very much like Aventus, I have to say that the post above describing the scent as douchey is about the most spot-on use of that word I have ever heard. In fact, I might have to go through my little database and add the term to my two-word tags for all things Creed: Douchey Aquatic, Douchey Oud, Douchey ______, etc.

    Invasion Barbare.

    Aventus to me is black shirt, gold chain and fake tan.

    Interesting use of the word 'douchey'. But one I'm inclined to agree with. I don't know what it is about Aventus - while I like it well enough, it has that 'young, loud n brash' vibe reminiscent of Armani's AdG or JPG's Le Male. 'douchey' sums it up perfectly.

    I'd pick a judicious application of the MDCI.

    I like Aventus much more than Invasion Barbare BUT for the office environment, I'd have to go with Invasion Barbare. It's classier, more mature, and less likely to offend.

    Hehe - imagine this scenario: "Well, I had a big agenda of mergers and acquisitions planned out, but I smell Aventus. Bring out the discoballs and stripper poles!"

    my guess is the OP already has his meeting back in May...If not, he was one heck of a "plan in advance" type of guy...
