Creed Aventus

Luxe perfume house Creed's newest men's scent is Aventus. Aventus is a tribute to Napoleon . Aventus means success and this fragrance will debut here in the US ( September) before Europe. Usually it is the other way round.

Aventus is citrus ( the bergamot) and lavender to my nose in the beginning. Mind you lavender is not one of the official notes . As it moves midway, the apple and patchouli come out but neither is strong, not is it fruity. I also smell oakmoss and the vanilla which are both listed as drydown notes.

This is a very English type scent I think and one that would easily appeal to women as well as men. When my friend Kathy aka the Minx smelled it , she immediately said " I would wear this".

Full note list :

Top - Blackcurrant, Bergamot, Calville Blanc Apples, Pineapple

Middle- Napoleon roses, Louisina Birch, Jasmine, Patchouli

Bottom- Oakmoss, Ambergris, Vanilla

Part of the proceeds from Aventus will will benefit American Rivers, a charity that tries to protect US waterways from harm. Nice cause and well needed.

Aventus is available now at and will debut in October at Bergdorfs, Saks, and Neimans( now on pre-order)

30ml is $140 or 75ml is $240.
