Launched in 2010 by the highly regarded cologne manufacturer “Creed”, Aventus (an archaic word for “success”) has been making waves in the men’s cologne community since it arrived on the scene. And for good reason: Aventus might be a little pricey, but it makes an amazing option for those seeking a brand of men’s cologne that is sure to turn heads and incite compliments like no other.
The inspiration for Aventus by Creed came from the French Emporer Napoleon himself, even down to the ingredients used to create it. Some of the primary fragrance notes utilized in its production include: bergamot from Italy, where many famous battles by the emperor were fought and won; blackcurrant from Corsica, the location of Napoleon’s birth; Louisiana birch, which is the wood his throne was crafted from, etc… you get the general idea.
When I was finally able to test this cologne for the first time, I have to admit that I was a little bit underwhelmed – after a cursory spray on the wrist to test it out, I found that it didn’t quite blow me away the way in which I expected it to based on what I had been hearing about this scent. Before drawing any conclusions I decided to give it a little time though, and that’s what really made me a believer.
Creed Aventus Review
Celebrating strength, power, vision, and success, Aventus was introduced in 2010.
Aventus is the most popular fragrance by Creed. The class of men that choose Aventus represents world class taste and luxury. The top, middle and base notes of Aventus are unique each tantalizing and magically refreshing in its own way. The best thing about wearing Aventus is the way it can go along any eve in your way. It is just as refreshing as you need it on a cool day and as rich and deep as the musky oak aroma it gives away.
Aventus comes in a classic packing that adds flavor to your collection along with the genteel sense of scent it gives to your personality. It can add just the right drama to steal the moment inspiring romance to it. It owes to the perfect blend of perfect ingredients making it all fruitful and rich.
It symbolizes the glee of victory in waged war. Of kings and queens and the royal class and stunning warriors adding class to your choice and vigor to your personality. Men’s Colognes change over time, some more than others, and Aventus is one which you definitely cannot judge right out of the bottle because it is highly layered and complex. Aventus shifts from quite an aquatic or fruity scent and settles down into a woodsy/leathery fragrance with a great blend of sweetness.
Creed Aventus Eau De Toilette is a long lasting fragrance which makes it even more suitable for wearing it in humid parts of the day.
After you give it 30 – 60 minutes to really “settle” on your skin, this mens cologne really shows its true colors. Once the initial blast of pineapple and “sweetness” dies down a little, its more woody and “fresh” base notes are revealed. This combines into an amazingly potent and magnificent smelling cologne for men that isn’t overpowering with its masculine characteristics, but are just there enough. When “rounded out” by the fresh and woody side, you have an almost perfect mix that people seem to go crazy over. I can seriously say that I’ve never gotten so many compliments from a specific brand of cologne, and that’s quite a feat considering how many I’ve tried out!
Aventus would make an appropriate brand of cologne for just about any occasion, but it truly stands out as more of a summer cologne for me. Creed themselves classify it as “Fruity/fresh”, which makes it non offensive enough to wear throughout the day at work as well as on a night on the town.
Although Creed Aventus might carry a bit of a higher price tag than some are comfortable with spending on even the best cologne for men, you might find that it makes up for it with its amazing projection and longevity. I learned early on to refrain from overdoing it with this one – aside from the fact that it projects much further than you might think (I’ve been found more than once in a large crowd across the room in an attempt to discover the location of “that amazing smell”!), it also tends to last a long time. With even just a few sprays, you’d be surprised to see how effectively it’s still working 10+ hours later!
If you’re looking for a bit of a higher end brand of cologne for men that is certain to get you a ton of compliments and praise from men and women alike, Aventus by Creed might be exactly what you’re looking for.
Top Notes: Italian bergamot, Pineapples, and Blackcurrant
Middle Notes: Roses. dry birch, Moroccan jasmine, Patchouli
Base Notes: Musk, Oak moss, Ambergris, Vanilla
Strength: Moderate to strong. Aventus (thankfully) doesn’t require more than a few sprays or so to have you projecting a pretty solid aura of the fragrance around you for most of the day.
Longevity: Excellent. One aspect of Creed cologne which I’ve noticed as standing out from the others is the fact that they last so long! While some brands of cologne might only last 4 – 6 hours or so if you’re lucky, people will still be complimenting me 8+ hours later when wearing Aventus. Quite a feat for any brand of mens cologne!
Occasion: Although I’d classify Aventus as more of a “summer cologne” if I had to choose, it’s definitely not one to restrict to a specific season. It’s also appropriate for any time and place, in my opinion.
Aventus by creed is the world class choice, uniquely known for its mesmerizing defines and adding individuality to your choice of wearing colognes. Thanks for stopping by and reading our Creed Aventus review.
