To say this is the greatest Creed Aventus review ever made is a tall order and Cologne Gurus will fill it. My name is Muks and I can’t wait to tell you all about Aventus by Creed.
Aventus is an EXTREMELY talked about fragrance for many reasons. If you head over to Basenotes.net and check out their forums, there is one topic that has been going strong for 13 years.
Men want to know which fragrance receives the most female compliments and why the heck not? One of the main purposes a dude wears fragrance is to impress the ladies and the best ways to figure out which cologne does the trick is to ask other MEN!
Ok Jason, where are you going with this…?
You guessed it, according to Basenotes and a few other sites, when men start giving other men advice on which fragrance to wear to receive compliments from the ladies, Aventus is #1 buy an ENORMOUS margin!
So you can understand why Cologne Gurus were so jacked out of their minds to write this review. Will we obtain the same results as everyone else? Let’s find out…

Aventus by Creed (2010) Thoughts by CologneMasters
With all the hype behind Aventus by Creed and how it is the closest fragrance to almost guarantee you a compliment, I was eager to see and smell the magical love juice when it arrived on my doorstep, straight from France.
Just like I’ve already mentioned, Aventus has an insane amount of hype to it because people have been saying they can’t stop receiving compliments from it, and in some instances have gotten lucky from wearing it.
The fragrance starts off with a light, fresh, fruity smell that most people translate into a pineapple. Although the initial smell is described as fruity, I love that it doesn’t have a “sweet” vibe to it that many teenagers would say they prefer.
As the fragrance continues, the words “smokey pineapple” has been thrown around and I have to say I agree. It smells like a manly pineapple.
The longevity of Aventus is pretty accurate. It’s not the longest lasting fragrance ever created, but it will certainly get you though a work day.
My Compliments – Most fragrances I only wear a few days before I write a review on it. Creed Aventus I wore for 3 weeks so I could really see if people really liked it or what the heck was going on.
There is a fairly attractive woman at work that knows I have a stupid amount of fragrances that I wear so she always asks and smells what I was wearing. I wore Creed Aventus everyday for 3 weeks straight but she seemed a little confused about what I was wearing. One day she would say she loved the smell, but on others she would say she liked what I was wearing the previous day which was EXACTLY the same thing. Maybe she was just being nice, or maybe her mood dictated whether she liked the fragrance or not.
We also have the workplace bitch at our store. I’m sorry but I couldn’t think of a better word to describe her. She happens to be attractive as well, but loves making people’s lives miserable and isn’t very pleasant to talk to. On one particular day, our water in our building was turned off without me knowing so I couldn’t take a shower before work… Great…
So I sprayed an extra 2 sprays before I left for work hoping to stay away from as many people as I could. Well as fate would have it, a situation arose where I was required to speak to the workplace grump in close quarters. When I left her bubble, she said… “You smell nice” and I almost passed out. For her to give a compliment to anyone was unheard of, but to tell me I smell nice meant that I actually smelled mind blowing and the world nice was the only thing she could think of.
Other women that I asked how they liked the scent replied with they “liked it”. Never really the axe body spray commercial responses I was expecting.
The Smell – I do like Aventus. Mentally the confidence a guy has wearing a $400 bottle of fragrance is worth it. You feel like the coolest dude in the room.
I also like the light, pineapple, fruity smell it has. Aventus makes you smell manly, sophisticated and confident. The smell without knowing it’s Creed is good, but perhaps the reason men receive so many compliments from it could possibly that they feel more confident while they wear it? Who knows…
If you’re looking for a fragrance for a date, night out, work or heading over to grandma’s house, Aventus will do the trick. It’s so versatile that I find myself picking up the bottle to wear in almost any situation.
Because it doesn’t have the “sweet” smell that many young men and their partners seem to enjoy, I’m going to have to say this fragrance should be worn by guys 25+.
The Bottle – The box, packaging, and spryer, all is at a premium. It just looks cool and like it should be worn by guys of a higher class.
Price – Depending on where you buy it, you may end up sending over $400 bucks for a bottle.
Longevity – 12 hours is almost a guarantee if you’re going to be indoors.
Projection – A pretty moderate projection. You don’t need to worry about attracting flies or filling up a room with this fragrance.
Manly – I get a manly fruity vibe from Aventus
Compliment Getter – I don’t typically receive compliments from my fragrances, but with this one I received several and from people I wouldn’t expect.
My final thoughts –
The question I keep asking myself is, does Aventus live up to the hype? Do people really get more compliments than normal wearing this fragrance? Based on my personal experience, I have to say yes. Of all the fragrances I’ve worn, Aventus has received the highest number of compliments.
With this in mind, Aventus is now added to my list of fragrances that I keep on speed dial when the situation presents where I need an extra boost of confidence.
However, Aventus isn’t something that I particularly “love” myself. It is pleasant, versatile, and nice but it lacks a punch that really blows my mind when it comes to picking out a smell that is the greatest of all time if that makes sense.
Alright, so who should buy Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier (1995)?
Age Group: Over 25
Not only is too expensive for most young bucks to afford, but it’s not a sweet smelling fragrance that most young ladies prefer.
With a strong pineapple note, Aventus smells a lot like warmer weather
