Thread: CREED Aventus

  1. #1

    Default CREED Aventus

    How many like or dislike Aventus.
    Throw out the price, the batch fiasco, throw out the house name while were at it.
    Poll is based on the scent itself.

    Lets go!

    I think it's OK, but I don't understand the widespread love for it. I was in Harrods in London yesterday (which has an amazing Fragrance Section and was told that Aventus was their best-selling Niche fragrance. I guess there has to be something to it.

    You should widen the poll, to have more ptions. I 'Like' it but that's all, certainly don't love it!

    The scent is gorgous.

    Its refined but its not to snobby or conservative.

    Nice and fresh and clean, with sophisticated qualities, just how i like it.

    Aventus is a nice scent -- fresh, fruity, and pleasant. Voted for "like"

    That's where my vote would have gone.

    Or maybe the "Serves its purpose" if that were an option.

    Have not tried it. Pineapple doesn't sound snobby and conservative enough but I might try it out of curiosity, perhaps.

    Never tried it. Would love to, though. Its quite a price for a 125ml. Very hard to get in Europe aswell.

    Aventus is superb in it's scent, projection, longevity, and uniqueness. The only Creed I'd even consider paying retail price for.

    Aventus is the most amazing smell ever. Don't "test"... At first I was like eh it's kinda OK.

    Then I wore it out and I was like what's that delicious smell... Oh wait that's me, and my mind was blown

    I *can't* throw out the price and the batch fiasco. Quality control is incredibly important given the price they expect for their products. If when one bought a Rolls Royce one couldn't be guaranteed that the wheels were round and the axles straight, would one be expected to just write it off as a bad batch, and grin and bear the bumpy/wobbly ride? The fact is, at its best, Aventus is wonderful. But that Aventus will cost you just as much as an ashy, unbalanced bottle of crap one would never wear.

    If Aventus were only $20, and I had to choose between it and Rochas Man, I'd pick the latter.

    Aventus is a great compliment getter? There's a big difference between, "You smell good" and "You make it smell good in here (like an air freshener)."

    Keep in mind, there may be a bandwagon of seeming to dislike/'hate' Aventus going on.

    -Get a scent that people rave about.
    -Beat that scent into their heads by bringing it up a lot, and eventually people may start a bandwagon thing of seeming to dislike/'hate' the frag.

    Alas, I'd like for the frequency of Aventus being posted about to decrease..

    Aventus is a scent I enjoy very much, but it's actually one of my least complimented scents, though I haven't met anyone who disliked it. I consider Aventus to be ultra-safe rather than sexy.
    I have a 100ml Gucci Pour Homme 2003 that I'll swap for Reflection Man or De Bachmakov. PM me if interested.

    I enjoy it well enough... smells great when I detect it on my clothing. However I tried Fahrenheit the other day and it seemed appealing at first, but within minutes I wanted to get as far away from it as possible! From that distance, it would continue to be appealing. Not that there's a similarity between the two, except for the amount of enthusiasm people demonstrate.

    I doubt it'll happen. Everybody and their brother's girlfriend's divorced uncle's new boyfriend seems to think he needs to start a new thread about it rather than using the search feature, because even though the topic has been beaten to death, it hasn't been beaten to death by him yet.

    By the way, did you hear the news? Somebody already released a clone of Fresco. Didn't see THAT comin'!

    I like it. But my first impression was that it's OK. I'm currently on the hunt for a few new spring/summer scents.

    I like it - not as much as GIT, but I like it. SWMBO likes it - which is often more important.

    So what do you find more painful, the 1,604,397th thread started about Aventus or how basenotes is running right now. To me it is a close, but with the edge trending towards another Aventus thread.
