The company says:
The House of Creed introduces a new universal fragrance, based on its most iconic scent, Aventus. Introducing Aventus Cologne, the rebellious counterpart to the bestselling Aventus. Urban spirited, individualistic and fashion-forward, this aromatic fruity Eau de Parfum is inspired by a classic uplifting cologne for men and is as much surprising as it is the new classic in men's fragrance.

Latest Reviews of Aventus Cologne
Performance is not great at about 4-5 hours longevity,
The top notes are in contrast to quite a surprising arrival of touches of birch tar - quite un-Cologne-like - and a patchouli; a bit like echoes of Cuir de Russie of the same house 100-times diluted. A green jasmine lurks in the background, assisted by some - fairly bland - rose its attempt to bring in a floral turn, but the latter remains in the background on me until a bit later
The base, purportedly composed of musk, vanilla, oakmoss and ambergris, is nothing more than a nonspecific sweet concoction based on lots of white musks will some vanilla underlying it. The base is rather chemical - clearly a laboratory soup - and very similar to the bases in some other products.
I get moderate sillage very good projection, and four hours of longevity on my skin.
The promising start of this summer scent was, unfortunately, changed to the mediocrity of the somewhat unexciting heart notes, and the frankly disappointing base. Overall middle-of-the-road, too generic and synthetic in the second half without any redeeming creative features. 2.75/5
I will always have a bottle of regular Aventus in my rotation, but I don't understand the purpose of Aventus Cologne at all.
The past few years' Aventus batches are already super fruity - Aventus Cologne does not fill any new niche and is vastly overpriced even at the 100 ml/$200 price point that Facebook fragrance enthusiasts offer it for.
I also can't imagine Aventus Cologne garnering more compliments than the pineapple-heavy Aventus --- skip this and stick to the original.
If you love Aventus and Creed in general, I can't imagine you hating this, but it's not likely to win over Aventus's haters. I'm tempted to lower my vote to a neutral because of the "woody amber", but this smells so good on me in uncomfortably sweaty heat that I have to go for a thumbs-up...
