    Here is a fake for everyone to steer clear from. Don't be fooled by the Z01 sticker. It's not a match to the real creed stickers on the bottom.

    The sprayer says 'CPEED' on the top.

    Was there a picture showing the sprayer top? Did you buy it before, figure it's a fake, and return it? or what?

    Edit: Did you post the wrong url/link?

    I went to the page while it was still up, but there was maybe 4 pictures with none showing the top of the actual sprayer head.

    I.. might not understand/get it, but how might this be blatantly fake? It doesn't show any pics of the cap/under the cap that I can tell.

    Edit: Was the perhaps first one that I commented about not the original eBay listing either? Has it been listed multiple times?

    Same seller, they took pics out of the listing each time they reposted.

    You can still tell from the pic of the box. Fakes have the hair really darkly colored in.

    I'll post pics, detailed pics, of the fake I got for everyone.

    Use it as a guide...

    The fake aventus is on the right side except for the pic with the lot number on the bottle...

    FYI, I just returned a fake bottle if GIT to a seller on ebay. 1st one I'd ever come across. It had that outer picture sleeve around the box which was not pictured with the item on the listing.

    EBay seems interested enough if a fragrance house complains to them that they are allowing fakes or even decants being sold there with the house's name on it. Also, considering they are ultimately on the hook to reimburse buyers via their Buyer Protection policy, you'd think they'd pay more heed to reports proving the item is a fake.

    EBay should ask adam1280 to write a guide on how to spot Aventus fakes. http://www.ebay.com/gds

    I like having the physical bottle of the fragrance and I currently own a 70ml decant of Aventus.

    Can you imagine how many fakes would be floating around eBay if the bottles could be opened?

    Default aventus decant started smelling like rotten fruit, anyone?

    Hi folks, i recently bought an aventus decant (3 weeks ago), it was good kinda smell like the sample i previously tested, i was quite enjoying it and i was already thinkin of buying a bottle, Today i wanted to spray some but i noticed a foul smell when i took the cap off, it smelled really bad it made me sick, im still trying to forget that smell. Has anyone had a similiar experience? the decant smelled good, and now its like rotten fruit or something, i sprayed it and noticed it doesnt have the same power as 3 days ago, what is going on? could it be the bottle? thoughts anyone? thank you

    Default Re: aventus decant started smelling like rotten fruit, anyone?

    I've had bad experiences with a few samples provided to me in small plastic spayers if not used within a day or two of being decanted—Aventus was one of them. I much prefer, and request, glass vials when sampling.

    Default Re: aventus decant started smelling like rotten fruit, anyone?

    this one is a glass vial tho, it smells awful friend. I dont think ill buy a bottle its scary spending 150+ on a fragrance that could end up smelling this way.

    Strange. I've never had anything go bad in a plastic atomizer.

    Hi edsex - we'll move this to the Creed Queries thread.
    Thanks!

    Default Re: aventus decant started smelling like rotten fruit, anyone?

    Perhaps the glass vial had a contaminant in it and the fragrance reacted with it. That might have been the same situation with my plastic samples. I have had three fragrances in plastic sour on me,whereas I've had none in glass take that route yet.

    I saw a video where a creed boutique associate said the 4oz bottles of GIT are polished with black sand from the beaches of Greece so if you hold the bottle at an angle in the light you should see a sparkle.. like a glittery affect. It was on an episodeof street scents.

    Default Longevity and sillage issues with Creed

    My apologies upfront if this topic has been covered at length before.

    I recently purchased a small bottle of Aventus and loved it. No complaints whatsoever with the scent. But the longevity and sillage are virtually nonexistent on my skin. After an hour, tops it's barely even a skin scent. I then decided to try some Creed decants. Green Irish Tweed worked a little better, but Silver Mountain Water and MI performed identically to Aventus. It's very frustrating, as I enjoyed all of them, especially Aventus. But when the smallest bottle costs $165 and I get zero performance, I can't justify the price. Had anyone else experienced the same?

    On a similar note, my recent purchase of Tobacco Vanille has proven just the opposite. It's a monster on my skin, and I think it's reasonably priced based on quality and performance.
