About Aventus Cologne by Creed

People & Companies

Creed
Fragrance House

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.

Reviews of Aventus Cologne by Creed

The pineapple of the original has been given a makeover by the addition of some bergamot - it's a Cologne after all - with fresh green apples, a touch of mint and just a little bit of blackcurrant fruitiness - nice and quite refreshing.

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

A fresher zesty and more people pleasing version of Aventus. It has this Summery vacation in the sun vibe going on. If I was to go on a holiday and was looking for a beautiful luxury cologne to party on down in the hot tropical evenings, this would fit the bill. Very nice!

Generic citrus-woody scent.

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.

This is essentially the wood and ambrox heart of the original Aventus, but with fresh-squeezed orange juice and bits of other citrus on top instead of the pineapple. And for some reason, they added a pinch of cheap aquatic "woody amber" to the base (I guess in a failed attempt to make it more "sporty"?).

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...

The contrasts found in original Aventus are softer and more subtle for a quieter but still very crisp cologne version of the now classic Creed Aventus. The tart citrus opening is slightly softer and the dry ashen base is more transparent. Aventus Cologne is the probable successor /replacement for Pure White Cologne which has never really struck gold in the Creed line-up. I am surprised I like this as much as I do. It is not worth the price, yes, but its hard to find anything objectionable. There is nothing revolutionary or new with Aventus Cologne, but you get a well made, hot weather compatible, Aventus styled flanker that is a pleasure to wear especially in warm weather. Aventus Cologne follows Aventus original; just as Declaration Essence followed Cartier Declaration - 20 years earlier with improvements that will extend the audience, but also dilutes the personality of the original creation.

Personally, I find Aventus Cologne a fairly disappointing experience. After seeing other people's reviews my expectations had been managed but I still couldn't give more than a neutral for this.

It opens with a generic freshness that's followed up by a synthetic undercurrent of "nice smell". It's not unpleasant at all but it just isn't great. It puts me in mind of Prada Luna Rossa. I'm not saying that the notes are the same but the experience is very similar. Generic, fresh, synthetic.

I love the original but I do feel that it hasn't aged well due to the saturation of sauvage and others making it a cliché to smell so boldly "nice". Every other dude at work or in the supermarket now strongly smells great. This flanker just falls even more into that designer led cliché. It's just a "sport" version of aventus which has ripped the heart out the original by stripping away everything which isn't fresh.

Still, neutral cause it smells nice.
