    A lot of people find that they don't detect much when wearing Aventus, although others around them often do.

    We'll merge this with our Creed Queries thread.

    Thanks.

    Should the batch number not be engraved on the bottom of the bottle?...

    Default John Lewis - Fake Creed?

    Hi Guys,

    This is my first ever purchase of Creed - Aventus.

    I know many people who wear this and the smell holds for hours upon hours, but mine simply does not :\.
    The batch is - A42C14A01.

    I batch number is laser engraved on the back of the bottle, but it is so faint it's untrue, from what I've been reading the batch number is suppose to be on the bottom of the bottle.

    I've read many posts and many people are sayng the box should have like a sticker on it and the box should immediately smell of the aftershave, but mine does not.

    The box was easily openable i.e no method of ensuring the box will only be opened by the person who has purchased it...

    I am providing some pictures, can you guys help me?

    I have the manager ringinging me tomorrow so we can discuss this matter 1 to1.

    As you know,most Creeds have the lot number etched onto the bottom rim,equally they have the house name imprinted onto the atomiser. The last tell is the white housing ring.

    Well things have changed,and disappointingly it looks as if the house of creed are are opting for something less impressive. No more is the Creed name stamped onto the spray top,this has been replaced by a shorter version..more stubby in look.
    The lot number has also been moved from the bottom rim and relocated to the back of the bottle. And the white ring has been replaced with something more translucent. I have purchased two 200ml bottles in the last week as I wanted verification that my first bottle was ok,of course it turned out fine. The first was John Lewis and the second was the Creed Boutique.

    So,no need to panic,I've also spoken to the house direct and they confirm all of the above changes. I hope this is reassuring to all fragrance lovers that spend their hard earned money.

    @patel07 - Does this help?

    Why would John Lewis sell fakes... face palm.

    It's different because you have the redesigned version.

    You paid full retail at John Lewis and you are STILL questioning it??? What would make you people feel better? If you paid 10x retail and got the bottle bestowed directly upon you by Olivier Creed himself, you'd still question it.

    I don't know where you are gathering all your mis-information, but:
    1)the laser engraving is very frequently on the back rim
    2)it can be very faint
    3)no idea what sticker you are talking about
    4)the box should not immediately smell like the fragrance unless someone has already sprayed it
    5)of course it was 'easily openable' - Creeds do NOT come cellophane wrapped
    6)the manager is going to have a great time discussing this with you 1 on 1 tomorrow

    You're good bro.. creed recently redesigned their atomizers & box. The atomizers no longer have the bb in them and are shorter compared to the older ones. And the sticker they're talking about is the one on the bottom of the box with the lot#/batch code. And the batch code can either be on the lower rim/lip of the bottle or the bottom. Also the box shouldnt smell of aventus unless its been sprayed. So stop worrying & enjoy! ;-)

    Default Creed Green Irish Tweed. Real of fake?

    Hello gentlemen!

    (Please move if in wrong section)

    I am new to this forum! Been lurking in the shadows for a while...

    I bought this 4 fl.oz of Creed Green Irish Tweed from allbeauty.com... But i have some concernes..

    The lid is quite loose and doesnt fit well on the top of the bottle... And there is no "Creed" on the top of the sprayer. The sprayer itself looks alittle smaller than other I've seen on the net..

    The box it self is top quality and with that velvetish material on the front.

    The batchnr is : A32B13T01

    Is it a know batchnr? Good batch?

    I'm not sure of a change in design in the top of the nozzle, but the photos look OK to my eye. Over the years I have had a few Creeds with less than snug fitting caps. Does it smell like you know it to smell?

    So it suppose to be "creed" on the top of the nozzle? Hmm I don't know.. It was a blind-buy.. But it sure smells green and fresh . It was no plastic around the box when i got it.. Should it be that?

    The sprayer was redesigned, as noted in post #907 above.

    Creed caps are often loose, as noted previously in this thread.

    Your bottle is fine.

    Well that's a good sign then. Trust your nose. I don't remember any of my Creeds being blister wrapped, so perhaps another positive for you.

    More proof that it is real creed then... 2013-2014 GIT batches are junk as far as longevity and projection go. Some say that your T01 batch is probably the better of the recent batches but if you want a good GIT i'd recommend getting any 2012 batch. i have no idea what Creed and co. have done to this fine fragrance but i suspect it has been recently reformulated and the high quality ambergris that was once in it is no longer and the myosre sandalwood base might now be more of a vanilla base. its an atrocity!

    Yeah, its kinda disappointing... I thought it would be better projection and longevity on this expensive frag... Where can you get a 2012 batch GIT?

    There are some 12's & 11's testers for sale on ebay. I hear 2011 is even better than 2012. It's as if every year GIT gets weaker. i just don't know if I can trust getting a real one from ebay. It's almost worth the try though since the new bottles you get from any other trusted site will give you this authentic weak new batch anyways.

    I got this for around $140. Please notice the writing near the bottom of the box. Its different than some boxes that I have seen. It smells okay, but only lasts for about 3-4 hours. It also has an arabic insert instead of English.

    Default Possible Creed Aventus Fake

    I apologize for adding another one of these threads in but I really wanted to make sure.

    The wording on the box looks off, there is no "CREED" etched on the atomizer head, and the lot number is etched only very faintly on the back edge of the bottle's rim.

    What makes me think its real is the smell... It smells very similar to my testers although a little more pineapple smell. The lot is claimed to be (as it says on the bottle): A42B13X01

    Also more information, I purchased it from: ebay user: perfume-cali

    I would really appreciate confirmation!!

    Well, now I know what it's like to be chased down by a mesmerized woman asking what I was wearing. I know I don't have to mention what I was wearing. Anyways, it was nice to be complimented and also nice to know that it does project and have longevity.

    I have the 13X01 batch purchased from Liberty London. Yours looks identical to mine. 13X01 smells well-balanced between its pineapple and smoke accords. From your description and what you have posted, the bottle appears to be authentic.

    Default Creed Fragrance Authenticity

    Please forgive me if this is not the correct place to ask this, I spent a few minutes looking at the different sections on the main page and thought this best suited.

    I have recently acquired a bottle of Creed Green Valley which has been a very hard fragrance to track down, I did not acquire this from E-Bay and I currently have it incoming in the mail.

    How would I go about making sure its authentic, I will be able to upload some pictures once it arrives but I have been trying to do some research in the meantime.

    Thank you for your time.
