Creator Jean-Claude Ellena described it best: “To feel the earth, to lie on it, to look up at the sky.” It has a slightly citrusy, spicy, and earthy woody scent.


Creed Aventus

Creed Aventus

Publication year: 2010

The immense popularity of Aventus played a cruel joke on him. The aroma soon became a scent that every man passing by in clubs and restaurants smelled.

The dominant notes of pineapple, birch tar and musk inspired many copies, but none of them reached the status of Aventus.
