Thread: Aventus for Her

    I have to say old chap's. I personally don't like this fragrance at all. And the majority of the females don't like it at all some do but most don't.

    The odd thing is they all like Princess Royal Oud better than Aventus for her. But would never pay that much for it.

    this stuff is like bubblegum candy to me! the fruity notes are great. *revs up the AFH hype engine - everyone should try it at least.

    in terms of the ambroxan/musk bombs it's being compared to like Sauvage or Light Blue for women i think i prefer it, has a nice candied vibe. no doubt the peach in the base is bringing that element out, probably why i am smelling bubblegum mixed with all the applelyness.

    Smelled it a week ago for the very first time, and I love it!

    Great scent.

    Don't like it either. I love Royal Princess Oud, though.

    Thanks, that's a good idea and I didn't think about it.

    I may want to get this as a gift though so I may just have to buy a full bottle, any ideas?

    got a decant of royal princess oud fellas. wow, this stuff is the real deal. goes in a different direction to AFH so i don't think you can fully compare, but do i think it's better? absolutely. and i like AFH too, the fruity notes are fantastic. but RPO smells so classy & feminine...and a little bit smoky. not as playful but totally wearable (for ladies), maybe the best woman's scent i've ever put my nose on. don't think a guy could pull it off as easily as AFH, something to do with the delicacy of the notes, but i'd sure as hell love my woman to smell like this

    First sniff today, call me crazy but I immediately drew comparisons to Paco Rabanne Black XS with the fruity note and the underlying very bitter smell that I don't like. I think the Sillage on Aventus for her smells really nice and can fill up a room fast but that bitter note whatever is causing it , ick. I have smelled it in many perfumes XS is one of those and I can probably list 4-5 more but it's a very bitter note that doesn't smell natural to me.

    Anyhow I like the smell from a distance just not up close after a spray.

    Edit now that it's way into the drydown it has that harsh bitter smell is about all that is left, totally smells like the drydown of the terrible aventus clone Zara Sprint 9.58 in a Gold cylinder bottle. Same with Paco Black XS that same smell.

    The couple of decants that I bought I gave them away to female coworkers since my daughter didn't like the scent at all. But she does love Royal princess oud. The feedback from my coworkers were not the great especially for retail price.

    And also, one of them had it in her desk. She never took it home. but she didn't know how to say no thanks. So she just took it when I gave it to her. Go figure.

    It definitely isn't getting the attention Creed thought it would by any means.

    I completely agree, the bitterness bothers me. But the peach note is just beautiful.

    Are there people who have tried several batches of Aventus for her? Does it also have differences per batch like Aventus for him?
    Do we have to hunt for batches or can we buy any batch (if we want to buy this one for a lady)?

    Very nice fragrance.. i don't like the beer opening... but after 2 seconds it is gone and it changes into a peachy, fresh, bubblegum fragrance.. but is it worth 180 euros for 75ml? I don't think soo.. maybe i would buy this for my mom or my GF if i had one.. but thats about it.

    My lady went gaga over this. I thought it was ok so I got her a 75 ml, and she just loves it. It really grew on me. 2 sprays on her just has insane longevity. I can smell her wake after 8 hours. Nice peach, then a musk combo, drydown has ridiculous sillage. She smells fantastic. We are digging this for sure. I honestly like it more than Princess Oud, and I didn't think that was possible. may not be for everyone, but just replace the pineapple of Aventus with peach and wala. Shes doing the Jowan wrist smelling in circles. I've caught her saying Oh My God as she smells herself at least 6 times now in a few days span. If shes happy, I'm happy. But this one surprised me.

    All the women that I have gave it to did not like it at all. Maybe it’s the Chanel connection who knows.

    It would be nice if the mens version performed like AFH does as its insanely beastly without becoming honking and induces no fatigue at all.

    It's weedy and snobby.
    Not a fan, nor is any girl I had smell it.

    Original Santal, VIW, SMW, and Acqua Fiorentina are the nearly universally successful creeds with girls 18-34

    I didn’t care for Aventus For Her. I tried several times. I have a reaction to it, so it smells very unlovely. I had the same, and lesser, reaction to Aventus, so I think there’s some common DNA that doesn’t sit well on my skin. From my reaction, it may be amped up in AFH. I can’t say if the fragrance itself is well-done, it may be. But it’s quite unwearable for me.
