    Well, wasn't there someone on Ebay that paid like 1,500 bucks for a Corn Flake shaped like Illinois? So, why not put 99 bucks on there and see if anyone will buy it? LOL. What I think is funny, is that there will be auctions for a one dollar bill, and people bid over one dollar to win the auction! LOL. Hey look, I won a dollar! How much did it cost? Oh, $1.25. Makes sense. lol.

    Dont miss the point..... The point is not that its almost empty, the point is it smells good when you remove the cap.
    A new bottle is 200, an empty one is 100..... yep makes perfect sense.

    Bear in mind that

    "To mark the start of CREED's next 250 years, sixth-generation master perfumer Olivier CREED presents a unique new limited-edition fragrance hand blended with flowers, fruits, spices and woods from CREED scents worn by royal and famous women the CREED dynasty has served since 1760.

    Like the opening of a palace door, the top note is bergamot from CREE Fleurissimo, worn by the Monegasque princess on her wedding day. Next is fresh modernity: the orange zest of Love In White, the fragrance worn by First Ladies. To this bright, gala start Mr. CREED skillfully adds a hint of crisp Mediterranean citron and bergamot.

    The middle note is vanilla from the CREED of France's Empress Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III; her fragrance was Jasmine Imperatrice Eugenie. Alongside is rose, queen of all flowers, from the CREED of Empress Sisi of Austria-Hungary: her beloved Fantasia de Fleurs. Mr. CREED adds youth and a contemporary feel with gentle pear and daffodil, soothing vanilla and neroli.

    The royal base of the fragrance is the ambergris and musk of Queen Victoria's intoxicating CREED, the famed Fleur de Bulgarie, with a twist of sandalwood from India, part of Her Majesty's vast and legendary empire.
    Founded in 1760 and passed from father to son, Creed is the world's only privately held luxury fragrance dynasty. Based in Paris, the company today is led by Olivier Creed, a sixth-generation master perfumer. . Mr. Creed travels the globe searching for the purest essences to compose his masterpieces. Using the infusion technique (which has been abandoned by the modern industry), Creed weighs, mixes, macerates, and filters everything by hand."

    They get better every week..

    Well, he does have 100% positive feedback, so I'd be willing to bet that the bottle is legit. Not sure which batch it's from though.

    Maybe among basenoters, but this is hardly the case in the real world. 99.9% of people have never even heard of Aventus.

    99% of Aventus sellers on ebay are basenoters too.

    Glad i chose b2b over Aventus. Doesn't last enough on my skin nor project as much as i would want a fragrance with a serious pricetag as Aventus should.

    "Aventus Creed Eau De Parfum Millesime Spray 4 oz 120 ml Men's Fragrance cologne"

    The seller's heading is no doubt purposely misleading by indicating right there that the item is (contains) "4 oz. 120 ml Men's Fragance cologne". The seller is obviously hoping someone will buy the item without reading the full description.


    Also the seller's page displays a "Hassle-Free 14 days return" policy. When read in full it states that the item must "be new or unused" to qualify for that guarantee. That takes it out of the Hassle-Free return policy for this item in my opinion. So that is yet another purposely misleading part of this seller's offering.

    I think I will send an email to the seller offering him/her $0.99 for the bottle (with free shipping of course)

    no, i think you should offer him like 75 dollars. i bet he would try to squeeze more money out of you and counteroffer to you. haha

    I think it's interesting that it's listed under men's fragrances instead of the Collectibles - Vanity, Perfume & Shaving category with the other empty bottles.

    My thoughts as well. I hope Ebay would remove these types of listings. I'm surprised this guy has 100% positive feedback. For the past 12 months, he has 304 positive and only 2 neutral.

    Hype indeed. The most discussed fragrance (probably ever) and here is another thread dedicated to it. Hype happens before a product is launched. Marketing folks try to draw attention to something. Aventus has been out for a long time. It has plenty of negative/neutral feedback and it's not universally accepted as the greatest ever. If you are going to shake your head at hype, think of 2 things...you have it in your wardrobe and you posted in a thread about an empty bottle for $100.
