    Default I think one spray of Aventus is better than two

    Tried two sprays the first time I wore it. Tried one spray today at work and it smells much better. I catch whiffs of pineapple every now and then. With Aventus, I think less is more!

    One full spray on the chest and a 1/2 spray on each side of my neck does the trick for me

    Wonderful. Now if we just made an extra effort, we might be able to take this thought to its ultimate logical consequence...

    Brilliant! And a new thread can be started to address each step in the process of cutting in half the application amount. We will have an infinite number of new Aventus threads.

    Just my 2 cents. I think Aventus is much stronger than people think it is.

    Please don't!

    I agree with the poster in a different thread. They really should make a sub forum for Creed only.
    It truly is getting ridiculous.

    1 on the chest is all I need. I can smell it for the entire duration which is rare for me. Never could understand how anyone could put on 4 or 5 sprays of this and expect people not to get pissed off.

    I'm afraid it's just been the one spray for me.
    It's all the assistant in the John Lewis branch would allow me when I wanted to test it a while ago.
    Wouldn't even let go of the bottle, the miserable cow.
    So unfortunately I am in no position to be able to comment if would be a one or two sprays Aventus user (or maybe even a three?) if I was a " masculine optimistic and THRUSTING modern man who built on the legacy of the ages to develop his own unique and succesful lifestyle"

    - - - Updated - - -

    Actually I don't think one spray could really be enough for a thruster now that I think about it.

    1 spray to the back of the neck for me. anything more and it becomes cloying.

    i like to mix it up by layering 1 spray of aventus with 2 sprays of MI. smells amazing!

    I think one spray on the neck, one on the left wrist(if you are left handed), 2 sprays on the chest, half a spray over the shoulder and rubbing the bottle to your forehead at the end is the way to do it. It works wonders for me this way.
    Now if you really want to have a cloud around you the day you wear aventus, you can sit on your bottle to warm it up for 30 minutes before you use this method to improve its effectiveness. I have people asking me for autographs at the mall when i do this.

    I agree. I wasn't expecting it to be as strong as it is. Less is definitely more.

    I always use this method to warm my fragrances as have found they last longer, something to do with the molecules becoming excited and stick to your skin for longer.

    I don't think it's the molecules that are getting excited!

    I spray one spray up my bottom to make my farts smell like Aventus.

    No offense, but I am just curious.

    I read lots of threads about Aventus and I have to ask you whether Creed have paid you to open new threads for keeping the hype?

    Donīt get me wrong, because I really like Aventus, but one thread is enough.

    I could open new threads like one spray of TV or Egoiste is better than two or whatever.

    Default Aventus

    Some would say even one spray is one too many.

    That's a bit cryptic.
    Are you using "bird" as a code word for spray, communicating secret info to other Creed users.
    If so I think it's a bit rude in a public forum like this..
