    It's actually pretty much on par with other overseas retailers that are licensed to ship dangerous/hazardous goods with DHL Express. I always meet the free shipping threshold as I always have large orders of multiple items. Otherwise, perhaps not cost effective.

    Anything you like - doesn't have to be Aventus to meet the threshold for free shipping.

    Very strange........

    The US Creed Boutique image above implies it's unisex (ForHimForHerForAll).

    The blurb from Essenza Nobile above (presumably copied directly from Creed) says it "presents a very special character for women and men".

    Yet, the UK Creed site says it's "the next legendary addition to the men’s fragrance collection" and refers to the "quality and longevity of this new men’s scent."


    So.......is it unisex or masculine??!!

    Of course it's unisex.
    Especially fragrances geared somewhat towards men are rather unisex.
    This one is probably no exception.

    (this logic doesn't apply exactly the same way the other way around)

    Guess that would depend on what those two other items are.

    I don't know what it is with BFL, he comes across as a bit of simpleton and minutes of a video go by and he's said nothing. He does that fixed grin at the end of takes too, sort of comes across a bit dim really. I do wonder if this release will stand alone as being good, it will be interesting as Aventus is has become a self-made boring cliché of a scent now.

    Ughhhh...You just knew it would happen (especially with the name they gave this). Called my local Neiman Marcus to ask if they had Aventus Cologne (or even just a tester, so I could try it out). They seemed to be very "confused," and insisted that they had "Aventus Cologne". I really had to spell out that it was a new 2019 release, before they understood me. Wish Creed named this something else (like Aventus fraiche, or whatever else) to avoid the confusion.

    How does buying from europe work? do you need to pay import taxes or anything on delivery?

    Just requested my free sample...Hopefully, its something more than the Viking paper samples that they gave out a few years ago.

    FWIW, Most YT reviewers have links you can use to get your own sample.

    New Dracdoc review just dropped...Looks like he's the first one to slow down the hype train a bit. Says it's good, but still not top-5 for him, and he prefers the original.

    If the amount is over $800, with DHL Express shipping the goods, usually a US customs duty is assessed (about 4.3%, but it varies)

    Got to try this one out from the Creed boutique in NYC, it's actually a pretty decent scent but my only issue is that it's too expensive for what you get. It starts off nice and fresh, has the orginal Aventus DNA, also I do get the Minty note in this. The best way to describe this is if someone took Tommy T with Aventus with a little hint of Jardan D'Malfi. I was trying this on Saturday and nice middle-aged gentlemen stopped me and kept on saying how good I smelled, so there! with the original Aventus, I've never ever gotten one darn compliment. (which I've owned 4 bottles off and from the Madison Ave boutique ) and This one the first time I try it, BAMM. Also, the lasting power on this is great, lasted on my skin for a good 8 hours. Also, they didn't have any samples in the store so didn't really get to try it after Saturday.
