Best Batches For Creed Aventus

Aventus fanatics always argue over the best batches and the differences between each batch.

But are there even any noticeable differences between batches and is there really the one best batch that is better than all the other?

Fragrance maker usually guarantee that all batches smell the same with modern production processes and strict quality control. The usage of synthetic ingredients is essential to accomplish this.

It’s different for colognes mainly using natural ingredients like Creed Aventus. Even though Creed speaks about their strict quality control, it is highly probable that there are certain variations within batches for example if you have to source ingredients from a different region.

However, these variations are so small, the average nose won’t be able to notice it. So there is no reason to go batch hunting. Leave that to the fragrance snobs ;).

The sillage is phenomenal as well.

We give this scent a rating of 10/10. It deserves it.

But even though Creed Aventus is such a versatile scent, we still see it more as a special occasion fragrance. That way it will also keep its magical effect and you can also justify the expense as it will last you forever.

5. Versace Eros

Versace Eros is a very bold, sexy scent.

Girls go crazy about this fragrance. Like literally crazy. I am talking harassing you because you smell this good.

Versace Eros stands for being bold, confident and sexual. It is supposed to be a scent that awakens passion and desire – at least that is how Versace markets this fragrance … and we wholeheartedly agree.

This is definitely a scent that you wear if you want to stand out and get compliments.

Eros is a very youthful, energetic and outgoing fragrance. Something that you can perfectly see on younger guys.

How does Versace Eros smell like?

Well, let’s just say it is a sweet, godly fragrance.

You spray it on, and you get hit by beautiful freshness, coming from the apple and mint notes.

Then as time goes on, this cologne developes and becomes very sweet, sexy and seductive.

Now, the best thing about Versace Eros is its performance.

This cologne performs sooo well which also makes it the ultimate fragrance for the club. Just a couple of sprays will get you through the whole day. And not only that, it will project like a monster.

You’ll actually have to be careful to not spray too much of this, or else it is just too strong. But if you spray the right amount, you’ll be good to go for the whole day and night.

A nice extra is the beautiful bottle this fragrance comes in. In our opinion, Versace Eros has one of the best bottle designs of any cologne for men out there.

Versace Eros is one of those fragrances you just can’t go wrong with. You will be bold, you will be attractive and you will smell phenomenal. All women from young to old will be pleased and you will be able to pull this off especially well if you are younger. We see this mostly on guys anywhere from age 16 to their mid thirties.

6. Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male is an absolute classic.

This is a very sweet, classy, masculine scent.

Le Male is an absolute legend in the fragrance community. It has been out for over 20 years now and chances are you have smelled this on a couple of people before.

Back when it came out it was super popular and revolutionary, and the truth is, it still rocks.

To this day, you can wear Le Male and get compliments left and right. It is that good.

Ladies love it. They love it so much. In fact, one of my first girlfriends was obsessed with this fragrance, and didn’t want to smell anything else. I’ve seen similar reactions from lots of women in all age groups. They just love this scent. It is knee-weakening.

Le Male is sweet and seductive. When you spray this cologne on your skin, you can make out the vanilla and tonka bean note, and this is generally how this fragrance smells like.

Now, everything about Le Male is great.

Starting with the iconic bottle design, the unique, sweet scent DNA, and the compliments it gets. The only thing where Le Male falls short a little is the performance. Back in the days, it used to be a beast, but over the years it has been reformulated lots of times and has gotten weaker now. You’ll have to reapply it throughout the day if you want to keep this noticeable – we recommend using a portable travel atomizer.

There is also a newer version of this scent, which might be an even better choice for you. Ultra Male is a refined version of Le Male. It lasts longer, smells a little sweeter and more modern and has overall better performance. It works very well in the club and at parties.

While they are quite similar, they aren’t identical. All in all, we think Le Male is a little more versatile and low-key, which makes it more suitable for younger guys.

Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male is a scent that has stood the test of time. You really can’t go wrong with this fragrance if you are looking for a great cologne for teenagers.

The only downside? The price.

In typical Chanel fashion it is priced at the higher end range of designer fragrances.

However, this makes it not the best option for younger guys who often don’t have a lot of disposable income.
