    Default The Darkest Day In Fragrance History...

    What if...

    Creed has announced on April 1, 2015 it will no longer have Creed Aventus for sale and will be vaulted due to sourcing issues of royal pineapple.

    What are your thoughts...

    At least the upside would be everyone would stop f*cking talking about it.

    You'd think Aventus was the only perfume out there....

    I'm sure that the sun would turn into a black hole and swallow us all. Human existance would end...unless we enter a worm hole and come out into a creed universe where royal pineapple is the only thing there except for bar-b-ques.

    "Royal Pineapple" reminds me of "royal jelly". I envision it being fed to the queen of a hive that consisted of Carmen Mirandas.

    lol @ royal pineapple but I will say none of the clones I have encountered have much pineapple in them at all - if any. Maybe there is something to that claim??

    I didn't read the "What if" and my first thought was "Eh hell now I have to track down a z01 bottle for myself since all I got is my ~40mL left from a split."

    Glad I don't have to do that now!

    For me there would be no worry as I have a large full bottle in my collection to keep me happy

    If Clarins/Mugler merged with Creed we could get Pure Pineapple or Royal Pineapple Malt. Now that would probably make 99% of Basenoters very happy!

    I think I still haven't smelled this. Surely I'm missing a real ACE!

    Or if I did, it wasn't memorable.
    I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

    M7 says differently. The mystique around Aventus would only grow around here as people fight over the remaining good batch numbers.

    Don't worry - whatever bottles you already have of Aventus will soon turn anyway...
