PrefaceIn the following I will try to reflect my very personal impressions and experiences with/about Creed Aventus. I am currently concentrating on the Batch 19P11, because I am currently using it.
ScentCreed Aventus always opens in the top note with a great, sweet and pleasant pineapple, which then slowly recedes to make room for apple and bergamot. Unfortunately I don't smell currant here.
After a while the heart note begins, where I can easily smell the birch and something else, but I can't place it, does patchouli? Or juniper berry? I really don't know, because I have never smelled these notes separately. Unfortunately I don't smell jasmine and rose here.
After several hours the drydown begins, where slowly but surely the musk and ambergris take the lead. Unfortunately I don't smell oakmoss and vanilla here. But maybe the vanilla is worked in so tenderly that it is not perceptible for my nose
At the very end Aventus ends with musk.
Unfortunately, as you could read, I do not perceive all the notes, but this may be due to my skin and/or nose, since every person feels differently and perfume develops differently with each person.
SillageThe Sillage near Aventus is good, one can still smell it from a few metres distance. But here, as with all other perfumes, it depends on how much splash you use.
DurabilityDepending on the batch and probably skin type, the shelf life is sometimes good and sometimes less good. Unfortunately I can't name a time, because everybody just has to try it himself. On clothes Aventus lasts for days!
Fortunately or sometimes even to my regret, perfumes often last 8-16 hours on my skin, whereby MFK Grand Soir even makes it to 28 hours for me
FlaconThere's nothing to complain about, pretty and high-class. I also like the shape of a transparent flask made of crystal glass very much, which makes it stand out from other flacons. Whether leather wrapped or just a label, Creed flacons always look high quality and beautiful.
Final words! Final words! Creed Aventus smells very masculine, adult, high quality or expensive, sometimes a bit harsh (through musk and ambergris) but noble.
I see Aventus more in an adult man from 25 years of age with a suit or business casual.
But points are deducted from the price here in Germany. The current price (2020) is already 300€ for 100ml, but I think it is cheeky and unfair, because you can order or buy Aventus in France for 210€. 210€ is still a little bit too much but the price is more reasonable than the partly 300€.
I recommend Aventus to anyone who wants to smell high-quality and grown-up, or who works in an office or holds a management position. Creed Aventus m.M.n. is also very suitable for meetings or festivities such as weddings. For dates and dinners as well, if anyone wanted to know.
Small criticism besides the price: The meanwhile 10 official Dupes (unknown number).
