    Frankenbatch Update ~

    Did a 50 / 50 ratio of 17Q11 & 10E01 (Newest & Oldest) . All kinds of notes whirling! Now it smells of Smokey vanilla with hints of pineapple and even tinier hints of vertiver-ish scent. Strength has noticeably gained. And stage 1 (scent emitted during Initial spray to drydown) pulled double time. And up till now the drydown scent is still kicking. I would have liked a bit more pineapple scent projection but both 17Q11 & 10E01 aren't pineapple heavy batches to start with. For my next frakenbatch, will do a 35% (10E01) + 45% (17Q11) + 20% (15U11). Think that will be a mind-blowing frankenbatch.

    Not bad a frankenbatch indeed!


    (Add..... Yup, this has some good longevity & silage going and can still smell it, no OD of the Olfactory... yet.)

    The frankenbatch I already made it and you need 4 batches : 15Y11 + 16D01 + 16K11 + 16L01 = ORGASM!
    I wanted to make a 100ml so I did 40ml of 15Y11 and 20ml of D, K and L batches. Wait 1-2 weeks and BAM!! HOLLY BATCH!!

    13zz01 is definitely not like 17q11. 13zz01 is a fruit bomb with no birch, 17q11 just straight up pineapple

    Those are the best batches IMO (if you prefer the syrupy/creamy pineapple and darker vibe with patchouli/moss/birch) so the mix of them is pure heaven!

    Today I met a friend and was assailed by a familiar pineapple scent, "Vintage?" I said as the mids were trumpeting loud and strong whilst being backed up by a booty shaking pineapple in a vanilla thong. "15U" he replied. Gob-smacked was I as I rememebered that one being a straight up top note heavy, linear experience and the way the mids were honking in this scent made me instantly think of vintage Aventus. Going to grab a sample and give it a try on my skin and see if I notice the same differences as this felt like a total change in the batches character as it was much deeper and more resinous now with a nice tangy element that was quite pronounced.

    In regards to popping off a cap of Aventus, well, what do you think my first question was in regards to Creed and what they were thinking when they decided not to have a sealed cap? My advice to anyone afraid of getting a tampered Aventus, is well.. Ya should probably know what Aventus smells like of your buying something that expensive that can have a cap removed so easily. How do you know your split is real? Trusted buyers, and familiarity with the scent. Why would they do that if they makes atomizer too?? People that don't know will.spend the money. We are here to help eachother. I've seen needles punctured and pliers taken to the stem of something that's removed with your fingers, and people are damaging their pretty bottles. I couldn't take it anymore.

    Best woody note ever -
    Creamiest batch ever -
    Greatest masterpiece batch (The Daddy batch) -
    Most intriguing/ moreish batch (that one you just couldn't stop sniffing) -
    All subjective so don't be shy

    As for u11, just killed off one of my decants.. stuff is totally different then where and how it started. One of the best heart beats I've ever smelled... others, many others agree thick deep beats from the base with this perfectly agged deep pine apple laying over the top. I think it's got 3 different pineapple molecule sizes.

    Boy O boy have there been a sudden hike in prices of old batches ! It used to be gradual. Pretty sure some of em have been snooping around here for pricing insiders or to find out what makes Aventus tick and replicate a copy/replica scent !
    The perfumes shop I bought some of my vintage lots from has gone on to hike the selling price by a hugh margin.
    Going to have to go covert now or risk paying premium in the future!

    Yes indeed true. Lately there's been lots of empty authentic bottle and flacons being put up for sales only and I can see many of them being bought up immediately. One can imagine what the buyers of the empty flasks/bottles and flacons are up to. Definitely not for using them as for flower pots or catch rainwater, I'm sure.
    I have come across some in authentic flacons but had the disclaimer (tiny wordings) that it contained alternative perfume which smelled like aventus too.
    Again, thread carefully my fellow Aventus enthusiasts. It ain't worth paying for a balony!


    *Update: My purchase of a 1oz bottle of 13z01 fell though due to shipping restrictions
    Seems that you can ship in a bottle of perfume into UK but you can't ship out from UK.
    Anyone based in UK and can assist me or keen to grab that 30ml bottle of authentic 13Z01 for yaself.. pm me. I'll point you in the right direction.
    Pretty bumped. So close yet peanuts!

    Hi everyone,

    I remember reading at the end of 2015 that Creed might be standardizing Aventus and there would be more consistency from batch to batch. Did that come to fruition or is it still volatile? Thanks.

    There's still variances. These days the batches are all to chirpy-fruity, at least with the 2016 and 2017 batches I've come across. I have not checked out 16D & 17N, maybe those might be odd balls.
    But if you're a regular smoker, you can offset the fruity wafts by blowing ya smoke in all directions (Que the drums)

    Hey Man, I did one time. I mixed 16K01 and 15Y11. I called it Y2K. Its legit. Ruined the opening of the Y11, but what a great drydown. It had my nose buried in my arm the entire day. Great longevity. 16K01 is a sleep batch that seems like a lot of vanilla nd fruit going on, but I had a friend put 2 sprays on without me knowing and about 12 hours later, he came over and it smelled like a badass Aventus does. Just pumping beast mode. He said he couldnt smell it. I was kinda taken off guard, but I remember somewhere in the thousands of post, and forum with over 1 million fiews, that this is not uncommon for Aventus. The wearer wont smell it, but others around you will. Sounds kinda familiar if you ask me.

    Forest Batch ?! Dusty Pineapples !? Out in the Woods !? Shit Bomb !? xxsjxx1 !? Oh wish you hadn't ...... Now I HAVE to get one of that too!
    But seriously, It was THE one batch from 2016 I've always wanted to have a bottle of.

    I'd recommend sampling since you have a 2010 batch, it's hard for any new batch to compete with the greatness
