    Default My new discovery. Please keep it a secret.

    There is this new cologne out there called Aventus. Wow man. it smells amazing. You guys have to try it.
    Not a lot of people know about it so I thought i'd share. Its got this royal pineapple stuff in it that makes you feel like you are ready to conquer the world.
    Try it. I guarantee you will like it. keep it a secret though. I don't want too may people to find out about it.

    Have you got information when it comes in an extreme intense cuir pure malt summer edition?

    I'm still trying to get a read on your feelings towards Aventus, Attila.

    No small proportion of your posts are about it, it seems that your earlier posts showed you were underwhelmed by it and thought it "way too overrated", then you tried the 'magical' Z01 batch and now you seem to think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    You've also started a couple of these really odd threads (the previous one was "would I get drunk if I drink a shot of Aventus").
    It's like you really like Aventus, but simultaneously start these threads lampooning the adulation and attention it gets here.
    If you like the juice but are sick of reading about it so much here, isn't it paradoxical to start another thread mocking its popularity on BN?

    I'm just trying to get a read on what this thread is supposed to be.

    Also theres this secret version of Dior's Homme Intense and its
    way better than the current version, its got this silver collar
    and is 1000 times better than the current one, worth paying the
    extra 200$ for.
    But hush, we cant let this get out.

    What am I missing here? Any particular reason people are replying so harshly to the OP?
    The post seems harmless enough to me.

    I have said it many times before - the Creed haters are more obsessed with Aventus than the fans are. No new Aventus threads for a while from a legitimate fan, and so the haters need to bring it up.

    Im quite surprised the "royal pineapple" thing still makes some of you chuckle. Time to get some new material. Or kick back with your Knize 10 or Sex Panther or whatever makes you feel good, and forget about Creed for a while.

    I hate to pour water on your obviously heartfelt enthusiasm, but it's the same old story from Creed.
    Paco Rabanne puts out XS, Creed put out an altered weaker version called Himalaya.
    Joop put out Joop Homme, Creed put out an altered weaker version called Original Santal.
    And now,
    Benetton put out Energy Pop, and Creed put out an altered weaker version called Aventus.
    I'll take the delightful pineapple note of Energy Pop over the Creed version any day.
    Cheers,
    Renato

    I don't get it what's so special in it. It's very loud (good thing) but heavily pineapple smelling (bad thing). There are worse and there are better frags... Didn't impress at all but as said there are worse frags than Aventus. Imo it doesn't live up to the hype at all. But i'm glad as many has found their holy grail in it.

    You forgot to mention the incident where, after you wore Aventus, girls flocked toward you helplessly and unconsciously with their eyes closed and their noses flared and pointing up, waving their arms as if they were swimming through the air. Then the sky opened and a school of rainbowed unicorns descended upon the scene and cold pineapple juice gushed from underground for all to drink on a hot summer day

    If I were Olivier Creed, I would send a serious request to BN to filter and remove Aventus threads as soon as they're formed.

    Harmless? Absolutely. Unless (and I'm certainly not saying this is the case) his intention was to irritate people sick of seeing Aventus dominate these fora, or start another argument between the pro-Aventus and anti-Aventus factions. Oh yes, there are factions

    I'm trying not to appear harsh to Attila, but this thread doesn't really contribute anything to the forum, does it? The rule of thumb I follow when starting a new thread (and to a lesser extent, posting on an existing thread), is "Would it make one lick of difference if I didn't post this?".

    I understood from the get-go that he was trying to have a laugh, but the 'joke' didn't really land. You can accuse me of not having a sense of humour, but we have so many people telling new members to use the search function, but then a search's efficiency is thrown off by threads like these.

    You cant appear harsh to me because you dont mean anything to me.
    If you dont like the thread, just ignore it. Its simple.
    as others said. its a harmless thread and you are waaaaay overreacting and giving waaay too much explanation for a silly thread.

    If Olivier Creed knew his Aventus was causing such a fuss on BN's he would discontinue it immediately.

    However dismal this thread is I wasn't going to bother commenting, at least the OP wasn't trying to promote it (unless there is some extremely weird psychology being employed ) but seem as you mentioned me I'll put the thread back at the top of the charts.
