Creed Aventus Cologne was launched in 2018. The Aventus scent was inspired by the remarkable life of none other than Emperor Napoleon. An aromatic fruity fragrance with notes of mandarin orange, ginger, pink pepper, vetiver, patchouli, sandalwood, musk, birch, tonka bean and styrax.
Creed Mission statement - 'create highly original fragrances of extravagant quality". . .
From Basenotes - "Aventus is just too strong to wear in certain situations and also is sometimes a bit too strong when new customers are smelling it for the first time up close on skin or test strips. Aventus Cologne solves that problem by being lighter and more fresh than the original while still retaining much of the original DNA (minus any smokiness) and more importantly the legendary Aventus name to help lend instant credibility."
From Basenotes - "Truly a bright and spirited scent with an edge. It has lovely nods to the classic Aventus and the newer Aventus for Her, but feels like its own scent. Much more fresh, with gorgeous blends of woody notes, marine citrus, with distinct grassy Vetiver."
Fragrantica: "A CLEANER, FRESHER and FRUITIER version of the OG; more CITRUSY but less smoky."
