#1 Creed Aventus Classic Version

Creed Aventus is a super star in the fragrance community, and for good reason.

Creed are a Niche fragrance house and they use hand-selected super high quality ingredients in their fragrances, but they are also super expensive.
A sweet and fruity masculine scent. Very unique smelling, but mass appealing.
Smells like a pineapple, blackcurrant and apple combo, with underlying woods and musk. Lasts for hours.
This can be used in all seasons and all occasions, day or night. Especially good for nights out and dates.
When it was released in 2010 it was super unique, but now other fragrance houses are trying to copy it with their own similar versions. But Aventus is still the original and the best.
