    Never mind, the world appears to be full of guys who get eaten alive by women who have lost control of themselves and wrap their legs around them in full view of the bar at the slightest whiff.
    One of them should be happy to snap up a back up bottle.

    Since I have tested Tierra del Fuego, I thought Aventus was just a waste of money.

    Get TdF by La Martina and save 200$$.

    TdF smells exactly like Aventus. Tdf is only lighter and softer.

    TdF is smokey enough and smells like (pine)apple.

    Only VIW is worth the money, because nothing smells like it.

    Otherwise: Creed = Rubbish.

    I'm one of them. I only bought Aventus because it's crazy expensive and I wanted to be part of the Aventus fanclub. I don't care for the scent at all.

    LOL I'm kinda in the same boat. I burned a couple hundred just to check out the hype.

    I sniffed it first from Holt Renfrew though and I thought I actually really liked it. But after a few more wearings, it turned out to be just an OK fragrance. A synthetic-but-not-too-bad masculine smell, that's all.

She biting my neck, grabbing me all over...telling me how good I smelled while biting my ear and literally wrapping her legs round me in plain view of the whole bar. It was unreal, she literally just went nuts. I am convinced Aventus had something to do with that because usually guys have to make an effort and thats never happened to me before in that way. I was out with another girl and she said " ive never ever seen a girl do that in that way before". Whether it was Aventus or not...its women record is now 1/1. 100%.
    How much was this lady charging per hour again?

    The scent most plagued by the notorious Creed batch variations.

    There was one sample vial I loved. So I bought a split and hated it. Bought another sample and hated it.
    *sigh* Not worth the hassle of finding a good bottle...

    So you dont like Aventus, therefore it's a crappy overpriced fragrance and no one else can acually like it or think it's worth the price?

    Strange way of thinking about fragrances.

    unfortunatly, many ppl do think that a high price does equal a better fragrance. If Aventus was made by Calvin Klein, it would be considered rubbish.

    I really like the smell, but it gets me no compliments. Out of two different batch decants, the differences are gone in about half an hour.

    With the distinct lack of Creed scarves, handbags, or shoes, there doesn't seem to be any way to say that the house isn't niche. Maybe if they start producing celebrity frags, but otherwise availability is a ridiculous defining characteristic in the age of the internet. Especially when anything with the name Tom Ford on it can be called niche instead of designer and Amouage is for sale on amazon.

    Surprised by al the hate for Aventus. Have a 2012 batch (from NM) and could not be happier. The only frag in which I consitantly say to myself "wow" when I catch a whiff on myself. Smells manly as he**. Longevity is 8 plus hours on me. Get compliments steadily with this one.
