    It's still possible, but if I were you I wouldn't bother. That batch is super-overrated. The new Z01 batch and presumably the ones after that are just as good to my nose. Maybe not as much pineapple, but more apple and still plenty of pineapple.

    X02 is not overrated, believe it or not. Also Z01 is not a "new" batch, it was the last batch made in 2011, and also may be challenging to find. However, I've heard pretty much all good things about the new 2012 batches, so check out the splits board.

    I agree. I have X02 and Z01 and X02 is the better of the two. It projects more and lasts longer. The scent itself is very similar between the two, with Z01 being a little sweeter and brighter. X02 is worth every bit of hype. So much so that I am saving it and only wearing Z01 until a batch comes along that is right on par with X02.

    I am in the same exact boat as you. Have both, but save X02 for special occasions (like tonight). That being said, I am not taking anything away from Z01, as it IMO top notch as well.

    I wouldn't bother looking for a specific batch. The new ones are great imo.

    I've tried a 2012 batch of Aventus from Neiman Marcus and it smelled great. It was also very strong and lasted all day. Just don't get a 2010 batch and you'll be fine. There was a particularly smokey batch in 2010 which caused a buzz amongst Aventus fans and had everyone seeking out pineapple heavy batches (a la X02).

    I got an X02 sample! Just from smelling it from the atomizer, I get a stronger pineapple.
