    Default Why is Creed Aventus so hyped up?

    I always hear great positive things about this stuff but i cant seem to get myself to like it. There are fragrances that i have tried and disliked but came back to them and smelt them a few times like bulgari black. Smelled like pure michelin tires. It may be odd but i enjoy the smell of fresh tires that you would smell in an auto store but i wouldnt like to smell like it all the time. Now i enjoy it a lot. The combination of the tire smell and vanilla is really something unique and i will be buying a bottle sooner or later. Now i have an aventus sample i have had for a while and multiple skin tests. I dont know if its the fact that i just like sweeter or i can say unisex frags because this stuff smells extremely masculine to me. I did do some research to see that the batch's are different as are most creed frags. The so called smokey batch and pineapple batch. All i smell even in the dry down is smoke like being in a smoke house for meats. I dont get any pineapple at all. Im trying to get myself to like this scent but i just cant.

    Its subjective. Buy what you like and you'll always be happy.

    Maybe the inordinate number of repeat threads are fuelling the fire

    You don't have to like it, because it's subjective.

    Hope this thread doesn't turn into a nother Creed Aventus bashing session. It is now their number one seller for a reason, people like it. Don't know where you get the Michelin tire vibe ... Birch note really makes this fragrance. It is part of my rotation and always will be.

    I was talking about bulgari black with the tire smell. I was using an example of how certain fragrances i dislike at first and give them a few chances and end up enjoying them.

    I wish more people didn't like it. I don't want to smell like other people.

    Ive only ever smelt one other person wearing Aventus in the last year apart from me, and I work in events with the public and get to meet many, like nightclubs with hundreds of people at a time.

    In fact the person who ive smelt it on actually bought it after smelling it on myself and demanding to no what it was... I dont doubt its a bestseller and popular but i think your slightly blowing it out of proportion to the reality lol.

    No - actually I very rarely smell any fragrance out in public. Unless I stop and turn around. Damn, who smells so good? Oh, that's me!

    So true. I rarely smell anything on other guys when I'm out. If I do it's Nautica Voyage, Fierce and Curve... that's it.

    I have yet to smell Aventus on anyone besides myself.

    Aventus is just hyped up in this online community and not in the mass market.

    Even if there are many members from any countries, they are just a fractional part of 7 bio. people.

    I have never ever smelt Aventus on other people up to now.

    Even if many people know Creed and Aventus outside of BN, most of them will stop sniffing and not purchase due to the price tag..

    Is it hyped up or do some simply enjoy it?
    With great smell comes great responsibility

    World changing super frag - masterpiece of pineapple - the stuff of legend - Amazing. Absolutely amazing - I love it! - The very best - this is ultimate stuff

    Yeah its absolute nonscence. Ive read alleged fragrance fanatic reviews online about it, chat on sites like here and fragantica, but thats about it. Creed DO NOT advertise... Oh, i think i read an article in mens Health magazine where it was listed as a must try amongst many mens fragrances to try. When ive been to selfridges to there counter never once has the SA reccomended or suggested "There latest blockbuster for men" or any of this other nonscence. Ive wanted to try VIW for example,. shes sprayed me with it, and then ive said thank you and carried on with my day.

    Sure if i worked in a high end boutique or department store im sure i may of recognised a few more men passing by wearing Aventus than just one in the last year, but this all very much exaggerated.

    My friend if you don't get smooky pineapple with birch, Jasmine etc...then your sample might have gone rancid!!! This stuff is superb!

    The same thing happened to me with Black. And I'm right there with you on Aventus. No matter how much I try it, I just don't like it.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    The "rubber" note in Bvlgari Black is actually a type of black tea, which is unique and blends beautifully with its vanilla note.

    So far, I've tried Aventus twice (from theperfumedcourt and official sample from Fragrancenet). And to me, it smells more like an air freshener. I've smelled it on someone from my workplace (I work with stock traders at a Swiss bank in NYC) and I find that person an attention-gabbing whore for wearing a perfume with a scent cloud of about 25 foot radius in a corporate environment.

    Love Aventus but after a while you get used to it. I rarely reach for it unless I have the need for a safe scent. There are much better quality fragrances than Aventus

    It seems like it's 10 or more Creed in general threads weekly..
    It is the most hyped house with the most hyped scent..
    I find it ok but not FB worthy..
