Creed Aventus is inspired by the life of Emperor Napoleon, signifying success and vision. Olivier Creed tried to use ingredients which had a connection to the emperor. Using birch from Louisiana, a state Napoleon once ruled and from Napoleon's birthplace the Mediterranean island of Corsica blackcurrant. This is a much beloved Creed fragrance since its release with a very loyal following. It's a wonder scent that starts off a little fruitier than some may like, but just wait! It dries down smoothly, not to subtleness, but to great power and projection, smoky and woody, but not in a way that will have people taking the long way around you at a gathering. Many report a lot of compliments because it does project and smell great.
Aventus is in the Chypre Fruity fragrance group. This fragrance features mainly Citrus based top notes and Animalic base notes such as Oak Moss and Musk. Unlike other perfume houses, Creed focuses more on the base notes rather on the top notes. So, take your time and wait for the dry down and the base notes to come alive. Notes of blackcurrant, bergamot, apple, pineapple, rose, birch, jasmine, patchouli, oak moss, musk, ambergris and vanilla.
Try this one in all seasons. You may be surprised how it will change with body warmth and like it year round, or not, but give it a season twirl.

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."
