    Default Aventus has turned sour!?

    Hello

    Has anybody experienced this before?
    Is it just a phase?

    I believe its a 2016, sweet, pineapple. Not much smoke, not much wood.
    (Which is too bad, as the sample i bought before orderibg the bottle had a deeper darker woodier tone that I really liked. The sample also lasted longer. And had perhaps more pear and apple than pineapple in the top.)

    Has it turned bad? Or is it maturing?

    I see People write about batches.. Is there an availiable batch out there, that matches the sample I describe above?

    Regards

    I have a 13ZZ01 that, on some days, smells sour. Then four days later I'll come back to it and it's just slightly tart.

    Noses can be unreliable things.

    Yeah, this is very true. Currently, my near-empty bottle of 17X has become incredibly bright and green. The bergamot seems to power through everything else in the opening or maybe it's very much a pineapple-rind accord. Either way I absolutely LOVE it.
