Creed - Aventus for Her
Aventus for Her is the hotly-anticipated new release from Creed that takes a rib from its famous male counterpart, Aventus, and fashions it into a fully-fledged fragrance with its own definite and special character.Inspired by the power, beauty and mystery of the Amazons - legendary heroines who fought fearlessly on the back of their horses for freedom, cutting off their left breast in order to better draw a bow - Aventus for Her is both delicate and strong. There is a tribute to the strength of modern women in the invigorating fruit and pepper accords, but also references to the soft, tender side of women in the musky roses and creamy sandalwood. A true celebration of the complexity of womanhood, and a fragrance that stands firm in its own right - not a mere mirror image of her male counterpart, Aventus.
A beautiful mélange of green apples, lemon, and berries opens this fragrance, making for a striking and energizing start. The tart, sparkling fruits mingle joyously with dark, inky-sweet violets, and gain a hint of boozy heat from pink peppercorns. The heart mellows out into a sensual and creamy sandalwood and rose duet, with earthy patchouli contributing a dark cocoa note that is almost edible. Unusually, the fragrance pyramid upends itself with a salty, ambery floral base that sings of ambergris, fresh marine breezes, and ripe stone fruit wrapped up in the tender warmth of semi-tropical ylang ylang. Both mysterious and forthright, this is one fruity-floral that will surprise you as surely as one of those Amazons on horseback, striding towards you on an open plain.
