    Default Aventus way too overrated?

    I mean dont get me wrong guys. I like the smell but its nothing spectacular.

    I feel like most people who brag about aventus is almost brain washed by the hype created by others.

    I think it varies on the person.

    To me, it's one of the best of all time. It will go down in history as a classic.

    However, others will probably feel differently about it.

    The fact that it elicits such a wide variations of reaction is a testament to its genius.

    Nothing special to me. Then again I haven't met a Creed that's worth its asking price.

    Aventus is the best by Creed. But is it worth the pricetag? No.

    For $300 dollars, I can get much better quality than Creed. I would pick Tom Ford over Creed. Creed is about the same quality as fragrances like Terre d'Hermes. Creed is a step above department store designer fragrances, but not as good as TF private line.

    I can readily agree with that. I'd also add Bond no.9 into the equation, no better than Creed in terms of quality compared to asking price.

    I agree to the above - as I have mentioned in the past, maybe spending 300 for vintage Creed's are logical, but today's version is too watered down IMO & experience. Today's house of Creed = House of Greed.

    Way overrated, as is Bond # 9 - shouldn't pay more than 150 -200 max for either of the brands...By Kilian's can also be thrown to the loop, but I like their parfums, which I would rate higher than either of the Creed or Bond brands, so I buy only their refills and buy a good atomizer from outside. I don't care for their jewel box package...Packaging is important, but to spend as much as u spend for the juice inside is ridiculous...

    All I see is hype with this scent. Tried it out and it was just 'meh' to me.

    Tried it a few times now, tried to like it, but just can't get past the price. The scent doesn't blow me away on application or in the drydown, and longevity is average at best. Top dollar prices demand top dollar performance in all areas, and Aventus just does not fit the bill for me.

    Is it overrated? Yes. However, its a good scent. With that pricepoint an interesting alternative to consider would be Rivages des Syrtes-MDCI. And its still less expensive than Creed. (Without the bust, of course.)

    3. Thousands hate it because of the first two.
    4. Thousands honestly don't like it.

    I find it VERY overrated but it is only due to the hype, not as much the juice being horrible. It is well blended stuff but the pineapple, no matter the batch, wears me down. I even like the longevity. I'll just never get over wearing a slightly smoky pineapple. To me that makes it more of an OK fragrance. Not enough to be getting the love it gets.

    So i'm in the honestly don't like it crowd just because of the ingredients. If you gave me that blending and longevity of anything else I liked I'd love it.

    Aventus is extremely average. The only reason people love it so much is 1.The Hype 2.It's made by Creed 3. It's got a cool sounding name 4. It's expensive(people seem to feel more important when wearing expensive colognes)

    No I dont think he means that and in reality just because some people start to think that fart smells good wouldnt make me wear a cologne made from it so yes, you are theoretically correct when saying "I wear it because I like it" but what others say about it has a lot to do with it , too.

    I liked Aventus before I knew about Creed or the price. A bottle was next to other fragrances I like so I tried it. Aventus smells very good, the only reason I don't buy is because I like other scents at the $300 price. If Aventus was priced at a lower level, I would buy it.

    A month ago i probably would have said that it's worth every penny, and by far in my collection the best smelling scent and all around loved, guaranteed compliment scent. The bottle i have still is, but i've recently discovered the HUGE difference within the batch numbers of aventus. I smelled the "pineapple" batch, which is utter crap and watered down compared to my E01 smoky batch (this is my personal opinion of course).

    I feel like minus the batch variances, $350 w/tax for a 4.2 oz is worth every penny to me, since the E01 smoky batch smells amazing, especially on my skin (it smells great just spraying it on a piece of clothing too). it projects well, stays consistently great smelling from the complex smoky leathery pineapple top note to the rich vanilla amber base note. I've lost count of how many compliments i get / great encounters i have from wearing this now. Of all the scents i have this still takes the top. I kinda went on a buying spree trying to get something that'll top it but so far nothing, lol (i now have 40+scents, including Pure Distance M, Clive Christian X, Guerlain Bois D'Armenie, and MDCI Ambre topkapi which are in the same ball park price wise, and to me my aventus is way more worth it.)

    The other batch i smelled was super watered down, plasticky, and pineapple-generic. I can totally see how people would be underwhelmed if that's what they had smelled. For something like that it is definitely not worth $300+, at around $100 maybe. So yeah. Basically, if you get the "real" batch that where the hype is deserved, then its worth every penny and blows most of the stuff out there out of the water. If you get the generic watery batch though...(which i suspect most of you who think its just meh probably smelled) then yeah, not worth the hype or price.

    Two days ago I did inventory on my cologne collection(full bottles/splits/samples) I have a total of 200ML's of AVENTUS different buyers(no offical bottle).

    I hate to go back to it but it's OVERATED because of batches..If you get a batch with heavy pineapple it's awesome and beautiful scent, you get a batch that is more smokey not so fresh then it's not that great. I have 50 ML's of the fresh heavy pineapple batch and it's great.

    That ignores the central point. Why aventus in the first place? Plenty of other Creeds/niches with cool names have come out and haven't received any fanfare. Its unfair to assume its popularity has little/nothing to due with the fragrance.

    Very nice, very unique frag unlike any other frag. I have smelled. it is in my rotation BUT>>>> Way Way Way overrated. Too many people put Aventus as their favorite Floral, gourmand, wood, aquatic, spice, powder, citrus, leather, rose, tar, vanilla, dirt, water, cat piss fragrance of all time. the worship combined with batch variations suck. the juice is nice.

    I know GIT is out there for $120, but Aventus? At that price I would buy a 4 ounce bottle. At $200+ Aventus becomes overpriced compared to other fragrances.

    I'm not big on most of Creed's fragrances. I wouldn't call them 'overrated'. Just not for me. And, personally, I feel like I could get something better for the bang of my buck at those prices, BUT...

    And there's always a big ol' but!

    I love Aventus. It's in my top three fragrances of all-time. I like to wear it when I'm in a bad mood to get out of the funk.

    Aventus is an interesting scent, but it doesn't appeal to me. Regardless of my personal preference, I don't think it warrants the price tag, especially considering the manufacturing issues.

    I personally don't find the scent to be that nice, BUT it does seem to always get the most noticed and complimented. For instance today. I was ordering inside a local Pizza Hut and the woman taking my order says " Wow you smell Amazing! What are you wearing?" I told her Creed Aventus. She said she never heard of it, but I had a small 2 ml in my pocket I carry around and handed it to her. She said thanks, and said she would wear it today. " I find it to be unisex btw" . Hands down its a high projection beast.

    Have very little creed, and not my favorite. I do enjoy them, and I can tell you that the ones I own, it's because I like how they smell. But I stand by my assessment that a majority (not all)of the hate comes from not being able to afford a seat at the table.

    My assessment is that the "hate" (or boredom) comes from the sales pitch by SAs assigned to the Creed counter, and often embraced unquestioningly by forum members, focusing on this imaginary exclusivity.

    My guess, and I haven't checked, is that if you looked in the wardrobes of the members who have made negative remarks about Creed fragrances, you would find many fragrances that are on the same or even higher price points.

    Last point, Creed can in fact sometimes be found in Marshall's (or other discounters) bargain bins, there are posts about it if you care to search for them.

    Indeed, no new ground being broken here, peace out.

    Actually, most of the Creed hate comes from people who feel that Creed make boring designer-like scents and sell them at niche level prices. There are also those who are turned off by their made up history, and ridiculous marketing. What is a royal pineapple anyways? A lot of the so called "haters" own fragrances that are more expensive than Creed. And it's not like Creeds are at some crazy unobtainable price point. You can get a 75ml Creed online for around $100, that's only slightly more than a bottle of Chanel or Acqua di Gio. You're entitled to your opinion, but I think once you spend a bit more time here, you'll change your mind.

    Edit: I see zatarain beat me to it!

    Not sure what a royal pinnaple is either. Marketing I guess..... But that's a huge part of this industry. All houses do it.

    It just seems to me that it's trendy (especially here) to hate on creed.

    Not much different than the band Lol, yet if you are out at a bar, no one starts a riot or complains when they are played.
    But on the internet, they are the worst band ever.

    They price what the market will allow..... And I would not buy a creed discounted , just because it's a creed. I am by no means a fanboy. I have a few, and bought them because I like the smell. And price point does not play a role in that.

    There are a few fragrances I like, but are a bit higher than I would spend, but I do not campaign to show they should be cheaper.
    It's just crazy to me how much attention creed and aventus draws. Both positive and negative.

    Aventus is a masterpiece. A truly groundbreaking fragrance with great longevity. Aventus is overhated.
