Most often we come across sweet smelling fragrances that resemble flowers or fruits, but have you heard of a perfume that smells like … success? Well…this is the idea behind the Creed Aventus, as it was inspired by the remarkable life of none other than Emperor Napoleon. As is common knowledge, he embodied both success and vision, making an indelible mark in history books.
In the making of this perfume that tries to personify the emperor, Olivier Creed incorporated ingredients that had a connection to Napoleon. So he used the black currant from Corsica, the Mediterranean island where the legendary emperor was born, and blended it with birch from Louisiana, where he once ruled … and voila … thus was born this popular fragrance that has enjoyed a very loyal following since it was launched! If anything, it’s a testimony to one of the most commonly used adages, “Nothing succeeds like success.”
As Aventus belongs to the Chypre Fruity fragrance group, the Creed Aventus may start off with a fruitier scent than some may like, but you should give it some time. It soon dries down and emerges as a powerful but perfect combination of smoky and woody, reflecting the essence of its two main ingredients. Smoky and woody may seem like unusual traits for a perfume, but don’t be in a hurry to dismiss it - this scent is as refreshing as it is unique!
The Creed Aventus includes mainly citrus based top notes along with animalic base notes such as oak moss and musk. But Creed focuses on the base notes rather than top notes, so it may take a while for the base notes to come alive. And as they do, your olfactory senses will be rewarded with the most appealing blend of the notes of black currant, bergamot, apple, pineapple, rose, birch, jasmine, patchouli, oak moss, musk, ambergris, and vanilla.

Reviews of Creed Aventus from noses that may or may not sniff like your nose.
from whatmenshouldsmelllike - "Aventus Cologne opens with a fresh citrus note centered on mandarin. Apple and pineapple are key notes in the original. Creed don't list them as notes in Aventus Cologne but I still perceive something green and fruity in the opening along with spicy facets of pink pepper and ginger. As with so many fragrances, a list of olfactory notes does little to describe what I smell. For me the beauty of Aventus is the masterfully balanced composition of zest and unripe fruit with bleached woods and marine undertones."
from groomingwise - "As the perfumed dries on the skin, its scents remain linear and they make way for the base notes. Men enjoy the oakmoss base notes as they emerge together with the sweet pineapple notes. At this time, hints of vanilla should balance the sweetness of the fragrance. Those leaving Creed Aventus reviews show this fragrance is constant and it lasts for hours and hours without major changes."
