Modern and timeless
Actually, I shouldn't like Absolu Aventus. After all, Ambroxan and Cashmeran are very high up in my profile under "I don't like". But it's different here. I like this base note in particular, despite two villains. This is because neither the dull woody impression of cashmeran nor the often pungent, chemical appeal of ambroxan come to the fore. Quite the opposite. A fine, classic patchouli note dominates, which reminds me of aftershave and perfumes from the 1980s. There is also vetiver, which is also wonderfully classic and - for me personally, the icing on the cake - a tiny bit of humanity through labdanum and musk. Yes, I like this limited edition newcomer from Creed.

But let's start from the beginning: The top note is quite sweet at first, which can be a little off-putting at first glance. The pineapple is there immediately, along with other fruits with sweet lemon and blackcurrant. My partner immediately thought of Black XS by Rabanne, which he had always loved so much. The sweet citrus is actually similar here. And for him, the opening smells neither like lemon nor pineapple. To his nose, it's all strawberries and I can even understand that in a way. The blackcurrants make me think a little of Hilde Soliani's Lambrosc. The creative and clever perfumer from Bella Italia had the idea of adding fruity berries to Aventus many years ago. Unfortunately, the fragrance, which we both also liked very much, never achieved the popularity of the Creed classic, which is still causing a real hype today.

I now actually understand the hype surrounding Aventus and its brothers and sisters a little. And when I sniff the limited edition Absolu, of which my husband has now treated himself to a bottle thanks to an irresistible offer in the souk, I also realize why this fragrance appeals to so many people. It combines a thoroughly modern top note with a heart and, above all, a base that we know and love from our classics. I think that's the secret of Aventus. And in this version, the knight is even darker, more grown-up and more masculine to match the color of the bottle.

I'm not at all surprised that I keep reading statements like "only for over 40s, suitable for men with chest hair and gold chains." I have to grin. This fragrance would probably have suited a Tom Selleck as Magnum. The fruity sweetness and, above all, the pineapple, which, believe it or not, I can still smell in his T-shirts when they come out of the dryer freshly washed, gives this fragrance a youthful charm. Yes, even the young Magnum, Jay Hernández, could wear Absolu Aventus. But then again, he's almost as old as me. I see the fragrance as timeless and see it on men and women, if they like, of all ages.

A word about the sillage and longevity. I can in no way understand how this fragrance can be perceived as weak and even watered down. This is a fragrance bomb that I, and my partner, can smell all over the house from early morning to late evening. His jackets smell intensely of Absolu Aventus and, as I wrote earlier, even his freshly laundered T-shirts. So if that's not a little sillage monster, albeit a beautiful one, then I don't know what is.

It's just a shame that it's limited. We almost like it a little better than the original.

First satisfied, then thrilled!
First of all ... By chance I had probably the luck that I stumbled at the right time on the page of a small perfumery from France, which had the fragrance just on sale. Have him of course immediately ordered and shortly thereafter he was already sold out. Just under a week later, the package with the bottle arrived with me and I have now been able to test the fragrance extensively for a few days and wear it in everyday life.

My impression during the first test reflected pretty much exactly what was already described in the first review below: Short Aventus-like start with grapefruit and relatively quickly the transition to a lighter or lighter Sauvage Elixir. I was satisfied for now, because I like Sauvage Elixir and I liked the combination with the Aventus vibes.

The more often I have worn the fragrance in recent days, however, the more a different picture has emerged for me: At the beginning clear similarity to the original Aventus and namely to the rather slightly darker and berry-heavy batches. In addition, however, a tart grapefruit, which brings a pleasant freshness with pure. The whole thing lasts about up to two hours, whereby a slight smokiness develops over time, as I know it from newer batches such as the 21N01 or from the Emperor Extrait. After two to three hours, the somewhat warmer and spicy notes are added more and more, which show a clear difference to the original. Here a comparison to the Sauvage Elixir is still quite appropriate in my perception. However, it is for me now rather slight similarities between the two fragrances and in no way they smell completely the same. Above all, the Aventus vibes remain quite in the background and everything fits together nicely.

To put it briefly in a nutshell, or at least to try.... A darker and spicy, somewhat warmer version of the Aventus, which is accompanied by a tart, citrusy freshness in the early stages and also reveals parallels to a Sauvage Elixir in the course.

Overall, it does not seem at all linear to me, but rather very multi-faceted and multi-layered with a varied scent progression. At the beginning I was satisfied with the new Absolu Aventus - meanwhile I am thrilled by him!

The involuntary saver is himself
"Hello there, where is the Aveeeentus ....

I fluted, leaping into the store like a gazelle.
The expectation, for some completely nonsensical reason I don't even know, was that Absolu Aventus was the original version of Aventus. With a shelf life until next week and sillage through three walls. Prominently present.

After inadvertently pushing aside a saleswoman who had rushed over in a frenzy of enthusiasm, I stood in front of it. The longed-for return of the fragrance of fragrances.

The good news: the opening roughly corresponded to what I had been longing for. The currant wafted through the grapefruit mist and then:
Not pineapple, no, an Aventus pineapple brass band.

I was moved and threw my arms around the neck of the sales clerk, who had just caught herself, and wiped the tears from my face with her scarf.
"It's him !!! [Pffffft SNIFF]

In anticipation of the holy smokiness and before I could blow my nose into the lady's silk scarf, it happened.

"Christmas tea ??? I announced irritably.

"Christmas tea! Replied the sales clerk, pulling her scarf out of my hand and pushing my nose off her shoulder.
"And if you could come in here just ONCE like a normal person instead of bursting in like a lunatic, you'd already know.

He's good. Clear Aventus DNA paired with, well, Christmas tea.
Opening fresh and fruity, fitting.
Interesting development, no question.
Somehow the Aventus Christmas edition. Incidentally, with an absolutely stable performance.
Smoky finish with clear oakmoss. Very round thing.
But heaven knows what they were expecting again.

I stared at the bottle in amazement.
I briefly hoped that I had picked up the wrong one and was holding the '75 ml' fragrance from 25FLOZ.
This information is at least the same size as the name on the bottle and seems to have been a matter close to the designer's heart.

"Burst into tears already, we were already expecting it. Moaned the patient saleswoman.

"He's okay. I announced, shrugging my shoulders.
But it's too expensive for okay.

Relieved, I pressed the bottle into her hand and said a friendly goodbye.

That could have been expensive, I thought to myself as I walked out.

"What's wrong with him now? No nervous breakdown?" asked the second sales clerk irritably.

I have no idea. He's probably just completely bonkers now.

Winter Aventus
First of all, I have to come out as an absolute Aventus fanboy so that you can better assess my rating here. For years, Aventus has been my most worn fragrance. I mainly wear it in fall and winter. In spring and summer, I also love Aventus Cologne. Of course, I had to have Absolu Aventus as the third fragrance in the series straight away and ordered it as a pre-order from Creed. It was released on November 1st and I was able to hold the bottle in my hands on November 3rd. Since then, I have worn it practically non-stop and can, I think, make an initial assessment. If you read here, the fragrance is obviously perceived very differently and even the "Aventus disciples" don't only have positive feedback. Does it smell like Sauvage Elixir or like a vintage Aventus? Neither for me! At first I thought it could also be due to the batch variation known from Aventus. But if there really are only 5000 bottles of this limited edition, I wonder how many batches there are. I know at least F001389 and F001493 and they are very comparable. If you have any other batches, please post them in the comments. In the meantime, however, I think it's down to personal preference, as the fragrance combines fresh and warm notes.
My personal impression of the fragrance in a nutshell, as in the title, is indeed Winter Aventus. The DNA is still recognizable, but for me it is clearly further away from Aventus than the Aventus Cologne. In the opening, you get a nice grapefruit with minimal pineapple. You can also sense ginger and currants. For me, the opening is a dream! Somehow fresh and fruity but still warm, slightly sweet and spicy. Cardamom, pepper and cinnamon blend in beautifully. I find the fragrance progression quite linear. The citrus recedes in the drydown and the base of woods, musk and a little smoke comes to the fore. On my skin, or even on textiles, the durability is relatively good. But the fragrance is certainly not Beastmode. With 5 sprays I perceive it well for about 8 hours, but it lasts for a while after that close to the skin. I find the sillage to be moderate, and it also subsides somewhat after about 3 hours. In my opinion, Creed has done a lot right here. You get a nice, mass-market fragrance for the colder days. For me, a nice addition to the range! It can certainly be worn at work without attracting negative attention. Those who are looking for something unusual, niche or want to stand out will probably be disappointed. I would rather recommend Hacivat.
Two more words about the bottle and price. The bottle is exactly to my taste! The 75 ml fits perfectly in the hand and the black bottle also fits the fragrance perfectly! It looks very high quality with the black full metal cap! I don't really want to say too much about the price. Too high, yes. But if you like the fragrance, you always have to decide for yourself whether it's worth it.

More....Unfortunately
Starts nice and fresh with grapefruit plus Aventus vibes,
however, this only lasts 5 minutes and then goes straight into the middle part where the hard disappointment came for me.
Sauvage Elixir 2.0 in light and aromatic.
Not as thick and dense as the original as the grapefruit brings in nice elegant freshness but in itself a lighter Sauvage Elixir with a nice aventus start This remains so linear in the first 7 hours with accompanying vetiver and earthy notes which gives the fragrance the gentleman like feeling and after 7 hours is closer to the skin but still slightly perceptible until 12 hours,
where I can say that Creed has done everything right with the performance of this fragrance.
For me personally, the fragrance is a collectable for Aventus freaks and fan boys like me and nothing more,
but form your own opinion. :)

Best Aventus in my opinion. Mature, thicker, more refined and sophisticated. Projection, silage and performance is excellent.

So much money for so little. Riding on Aventus' hype train won't pay off, Sprayed in a mall it was gone before I left the building.

Better quality than the standard Aventus. Feels more fresh and clean with the same DNA. Actually performance is rather decent on my skin.

Delicious opening of citrus fruits. The pineapple in the dry down is heavenly. Projection and longevity is rather poor. Not worth the cost.

Basically smells like Creed Aventus mixed with Dior Sauvage Elixir.
Nothing new, nothing ground breaking.
Creed lacks in creativity.
