    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    Tried this again. Maceration isn't doing its trick just yet. It smells really poor. Different to normal Aventus though, to my nose. Fruitier, more orange. Just such a poor base/drydown. Thin,...

    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    For owners of this, have you tried your bottle recently? Or do you wear it?

    Mine honestly smells pretty crap. Ambroxan and orange but in a really underwhelming way. It's Aventus, but...

    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    To my nose there's some of that going on. Lots of ambroxan, so it smells 'sporty'. I've said more in a review on fragrantica but it's definitely a more citric-centric Aventus with ambroxan very much...

    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    I would say if you're thinking about that you probably don't have too long to 'wait'. Probably not long enough for maceration to really give us a full picture of what this will become - given that I...

    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    Na not really. I get maybe an orange note in the very, very beginning. More florals, more leather and patchouli. But then the notes really die back quite quickly - like 10 minutes. I assume it's a...

    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    It's very much a glass bottle with a plastic matte black wrap around it. Not sure of the exact material, it's like a thick, tight plastic.

    I'll be honest the most disappointed part is the huge...

    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    Well I was fortunate enough to receive my bottle today, not Monday.

    The bottle is actually nicer 'in the flesh' that it appears in the graphic. It's a nice matte black finish and the...

    Mine is due to arrive on Monday. I assume many people will have received theirs by then.

    The written notes on fragrantica and nose were/are different, for starters, but as pointed out in earlier comments this is hardly reliable. It doen't seem...

    Out of interest, hednic, when did you place your order? And is it with noseparis?

    I've just had an email from nose informing me this is temporarily out of stock. What that means, I don't know. I hope my order is still going to be sent...

    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    I can't see this being a good 'investment'. Maybe in 20 years time perhaps but no moreso than regular Aventus. The real money seems to be in older batches. I still haven't read anything about this...

    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    My bottle hasn't arrived today. I was hoping it would but maybe it's for the best as I'm feeling incredibly ill and it would certainly 'taint' a first impression.

    Hoping it arrives early next...

    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    I doubt that. The original Aventus was released under similar sorts of claims (you can still find the comments on basenotes). It would seem odd they'd charge the exact same price as 'normal' Aventus...

    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    I'm not sure Sheikh. I suspect it's been tweaked. Not massively, but enough to justify what is ostensibly a cashgrab flanker-cum-special edition.

    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    It's certainly different to either Aventus or Aventus Cologne. It''s possibly a combination of both - melon? Orange? Aqueous? It sounds like it'll be a fruitier, pseudo-aquatic, and in that sense...

    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    If this is true and you've tried it to confirm that it's real then that that's absolutely horrendous.

    A bad photoshop doesn't discount the fact it's real - ofc. All marketing material is digitally...

    Re: Aventus 10 year anniversary bottle real ??

    I'd be amazed if that's the actual bottle. It looks awful and, to my mind, a pretty poor photoshop job.
