Absolu Aventus: Did Creed lie about it being limited edition.




Discussion



I think Creed pulled a blatant lie to its customer with this newest release of Absolu Aventus. Some of the red flags I’ve gathered are:

  • None of the official statements has the number of bottles being produced. Most companies are very proud of their limited editions and would state the exact number being produced. In this case, it all rumor from influencers and people in the know hearing from Creed sources. I have seen 5000, 10,000, and even an annually re-release rumor. It’s all word of mouth spreading but Creed refused to put a number on their site.

  • The single batch rumor was a lie. At this point, we have 2 confirmed batch codes (F001389 and F001493). Again another rumor is there’re 4 batches out there. Please comment if you’ve seen them.

  • It’s not sold out after a month. For a name this hyped, I expected it to be sold out everywhere but here we are after 1 full month and it’s still available on Creed website and a few other retailers (I know Nordstrom still has it at the time of this post). In stores, Nordstrom, Saks and Neiman Marcus all still have stocks. Some stores even said they got additional shipments.

  • It’s available at discounters and grey market. In fact some reviews came out weeks before the release because people got their hands on through these channels.

I know Aventus is a controversial topic on its own but I’m interested in reading what others thoughts about this topic and Creed’s practice of manipulation.
