Aventus for Her
Aventus for Her
Launched in 2016 by French luxury fragrance line, CREED, Aventus for Her is part of the Aventus Trilogy and was designed to be the feminine counterpart to the iconic Aventus. I’ve coveted it since I first wore it.
Aventus for Her opens with nose-tingling bergamot, bitter and green, and fresh, juicy lemon. A note of tart green apple rounds out the citrus fruits, making the opening refreshing and elegant. Pink pepper adds a little warmth to the fruits as its rosy aspect links to a note of tender violet. Patchouli makes a surprise appearance, supporting the fruits and flowers with its sweet, earthy woodiness. At the heart, a blend of lush, opulent Bulgarian and Turkish roses bloom on my wrists as Mysore sandalwood, deep and woody, picks up the patchouli just as its floral accents brace the roses. Styrax adds resinous hints that flit throughout the fragrance, as musk keeps it smooth. The patchouli and sandalwood stay down to the base that's fruity from sweet, luscious peach tempered by tangy black currant. A note of sweet, fruity, heady ylang-ylang joins the fruit and mirrors the fruity/floral opening. At this stage, it gets powdery from lilac and amber, which also makes it warm and erotic.
The drydown is warm, sophisticated, and enticing.
Aventus for Her is an anytime/anywhere fragrance. Still, when I first smelled it, I saw myself walking to meet a friend for lunch on a warm summer's day. I feel confident and carefree in a loose cotton blouse, linen skirt swirling around my legs, strappy sandals on my feet, the heat of the sun on my skin and Aventus for Her in the air.
That’s the kind of feeling Aventus for Her evokes.
