    I like the smell but it has terrible projection and longevity on me, sadly.

    A beautiful scent. I want to marry it.

    Do you mean all of the duplicate posts and slowness? Ugh. That suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks. I'm doing some research in the DIY pages tonight before my date arrives and BN is painfully slow, which is why I end up browsing instead, because I open a pile of pages in tabs and wait for them to load. Bummer.

    Anyway... the slowness is worse, but that's only because I'm in a rush tonight.

    It's the best pineapple scent that CREED has ever made.

    I don't particularly like the sample I have, the pineapple disappears quickly and all that is left is an average smelling smoke. I'll have to try it again at some point and hopefully get a more pineappley batch.

    Well......as I've said probably once too often before I would guess there are far more people who enjoy Martin Lawrence movies than enjoy the films of Robert Bresson.

    There's nothing awful about Aventus.

    well, it may work differently for everyone, but aventus is my go-to sexy/seductive scent. (it works well for almost everything, but ESPECIALLY well if i know i will be close to women.) I've had girls kiss me on the neck after a hug because she smelled aventus. This has happened many times lol. I know its aventus because they go something like "i'm sorry i don't know why i just did that, but you just smelled so good" and then blush. One time the girl nibbled on / licked my neck a lil bit, she got visibly horny but had to contain herself because we were in public at a small professional mixer event, lol. That was an awesome night =)

    If it doesn't work for you, i'm sorry. Some people genuinely don't like it all that much and to them its just meh, i can respect that. Then there are the haters who will hate just because its hyped and its popular...damn hipsters lol (j/k). To me, this is a fragrance thats got lotsa hype for good reason. it smells damn good and girls love the smell =)

    Personally I love it, even though I've never been complimented on it.

    When my decant runs out, I'll definitely try to get my hands on some more
    if I can afford it. I think it's a pretty unique fragrance and one of the best
    Creed has to offer.

    Although, I will admit, I think it's really over hyped here on the forums.

    My pet cat who is female was sniffing at my Aventus sample and a short while later seemed very horny.

    To be truthful I get a lot of pleasure from the never ending Aventus threads. It's like seeing some ugly friendly little dog
    in the neighborhood everyday. It's also comforting to see that other basenoters are as irritated as I am with how badly Basenotes runs so much of the time.

    I think it's just ok. I also don't actually get all the hype about it. It simply might be because it is Creed.

    This. I just purchased a 50 ml decant and longevity was great. BUT I didn't love it. Despite a good balance the pineapple really just beat me down after awhile. Lol...there were no longing glances at work from females. I just found it OK and didn't understand hype. So I might resell the decant. Disappointed after a week of wearing.

    It's nice enough, I guess. Not so keen on all the Aventus threads that just seem to cover the same ground, but I guess it's my fault for reading them.

    The batch I have is very smoky.... I actually asked my supervisor if I smelled like cigarettes. It's a good scent. I would like it more if I can get the more pineapple batch.

    Aventus is my favorite Creed fragrance. It is very nice. I can't think of anything that smells like it in top notes or base notes.

    ok quick update. for those who don't know (i believe this has been talked about alot already), there are batch variations in aventus, so you really have take that into consideration. I didn't think it'd be such a huge difference till today when i smelled another bottle of a different batch. My opinion of aventus would be very different if i gotten that bottle instead. At the price point of $300+ for a bottle, that bottle was wayyy over priced crap. Watery pineapple. Now with that scent if it was under $100 i would have thought is pretty good, but nothing amazing. I love my batch of E01 Aventus, rich, smoky, hints of smooth vanilla, splash of pineapple on top. real sexy/seductive stuff.

    So yeah, thought i'd give a FYI for those who were not aware of how much of a difference the batch variations make.

    I recieved my bottle on monday from creed uk and im very satisfied with it. its fruity, but the fruitiness is slightly played down and muted. it has a certain sparkling quality to it also ive noticed.

    i havent smelt any other batches to make a comparrison, but i couldnt imagine it being any nicer...

    I've tried it twice thus far but I can't say the scent matches the asking price point. That's actually my 'complaint' about the majority of Creed and Bond no. 9 fragrances.

    Had three different bottles and sold em all. Sad, confused, tedious, and tinny little thing. As far as women go, my girlfriend doesn't think much of it. Some of the others I know initially think they like it, but they tend to like other fragrances a lot more.

    Love Basenotes, but I'm not into current trends, here or anywhere else.

    Honestly, it is overhyped. I voted that I didn't like it on your poll. It's not a bad scent, but it's not great either. Especially for the price IMO. I know people on BN are huge fans of Aventus, but I am not.
