    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.

    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 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

    Default Re: CREED Aventus

    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.

    Default Re: CREED Aventus

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    To be truthful I get a lot of pleasure from the never ending Aventus threads. It's like seeing some ugly friendly little dog

    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.

    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.

    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.
