    Have you e-mailed them? Because I was checking their web site and haven't seen a thing. So I thought to e-mail them, but never bothered

    "Yes" I have. (More correctly, used Facebook messenger )

    I don't know when it will show up at their website though.

    Yeah, Nose have confirmed June 1st release for the fragrance. Having said that, there is no guarantee they (or other third party retailers) will have it on release or even for some time after. I think Hednic posted that Essenza Nobile will have it 5th June but in my experience Creed stock at European retailers is a lottery - I wouldn't be surprised if Nose and others didn't have it until a few weeks after release.

    Yeah and they didn't know how many bottles they would get in the first run either so the wait can be somewhat extended.

    I am of course hoping that I will be able to snag a bottle right away...

    first impression: sampled it a few times. its very refreshing in the opening with a good amount of mandarin. the amount of similarity to the original aventus is less than 50%

    Interesting, thanks for sharing!

    Tell us your impression about the drydown and development please.

    Does the fragrance remind you more about another fragrance than Aventus would you say?

    Here is my initial review

    Creed Aventus Cologne Initial Review.

    This starts of with a big sweet juicy burst of mandarin accompanied with an extra sweet peppery tinge from the rosebay (pink peppercorn) and just a hint of ginger. The smooth and clean vetiver and sandalwood start appearing. The original aventus DNA is there in the background. The base is somewhat woody musky.

    In terms of similarity to the original aventus it's certainly less than 50% maybe even 30%. No similarity at all to aventus for her. It does remind me in general of sporty fragrances.

    Performance seems to be in the average range . Close to modern Aventus.

    Initial Overall Score: 7.0/10 (subject to change over time)

    The base is somewhat musky/leathery with a slightly sweet/balsamic undertones from the tonka and styrax. Nothing really too sweet or gourmandish at all. It's just in the background.

    How does it dry down? Is it woody/sweet like MI and SMW?

    It sounds like it might be worth sampling once it's out, but the amount of noise Creed has done here in the UK about pre-sales is quite frankly over the top. It's not going to be as groundbreaking as the original 2010 release in my opinion, just a cash-cow flanker to make some good £$€ off the back of a well-selling number. But who knows, I could be wrong.

    Nose.fr pre-order opened.

    50ml € 144,00
    100 ml € 190.00

    Ever so slightly cheaper than regular Aventus.

    Expected delivery between 1'th and 7'th.

    I signed up for the free sample thing on Sunday...Didn't get any email/acknowledgement. Does anyone remember if they emailed people with the Viking samples, or if they just sent them?

    I didn't. But it's price on UK official web site is 215 GBP - the same as for VIW, for example, and VIW is sold at 156 EUR and up.
    So I assumed it's price will be 156.
    But as Sambuccashake pointed out - it's gonna be sold for 190 at nose.fr

    156 or slightly less is clearly the 50ml price.

    Interesting...Youtuber 'Fragrance bros' just destroyed this release. Said it reminded him of Allure Homme Sport.

    as soon as i saw tonka this became a probable but worst case scenario for the scent. still it's only one review.

    Someone else reported tonka and made the same comparison to Allure Homme Sport. My interest is only passing now. I'll buy a decant maybe down the road and that's about it. I'm officially off the hype train haha.

    I got some resemblance to the original allure homme sport and some dior homme sport in the first stages then some of the acqua di go family DNA in the drydown. however, tonka has nothing to do with that. its barely even there in aventus cologne. its just the combination of mandarin, pinkppercorn and vetiver/woods which tends to be used in sporty fragrances.
    after trying it for a couple more days, the performance seems slightly below average. it would be suitable for hot weather and work.
    im downgrading its rating to 7.0/10

    Aventus Cologne........woot!

    Decanting done.......I'm guessing this is the world's first Aventus Cologne Split!

    The verdict? Not bowled over but need more time. For all the chatter that it's nothing like Aventus, I find it similar, but lighter and fresher.....which is exactly what Creed said! Only gave it a quick spray an hour ago though.
