Redefining the rules in perfumery, Aventus Cologne takes its inspiration from a refreshing & uplifting cologne. Exuding style, success, true grit and vigour, Olivier Creed provides a fresh burst of modernity to a classic Eau de Parfum whilst maintaining the utmost quality and longevity of this men’s scent.
“With Aventus Cologne, I was inspired to create a new legend—a fresher, modern complement that would provide an olfactive experience entirely of its own.” – Olivier Creed
The original Aventus fragrance was inspired by the dramatic life of historic French Emperor Napoleon who waged war, peace and romance on his terms, riding on horseback to victory, hence the bottle is emblazoned with the silver emblem of a man on horseback.
Made with ingredients hand-selected worldwide by Olivier Creed, along with his son, Erwin, seventh generation of Creed and its future chief. Essences he chose were shipped to Creed’s French workshop, where father and son created Aventus using hand production methods that date to the founding of the House of Creed in 1760. The result: a work of excellence fit for the most discerning clientele.

HOW IT WEARS
Aventus Cologne is a lot lighter and fresher than the original Aventus, opening with a burst of citrus and bright spice from the pepper and ginger. When it starts to settle is when you get that signature pinapple coming through, as well as the earthy patchouli and vetiver. The dry down is all about the birch, and that’s what makes this fragrance truly unique and compelling. Fantastic sillage, about 6-8 hours of power on the skin!
This is the version of Aventus for warmer weather, or when you want to feel a little lighter and more relaxed, perhaps holidaying somewhere in Europe. We love how this twist on the original Aventus delivers energy and uniqueness and interest while still being versatile – it makes sense that it’s a creation by perfume royalty.
