Creed Aventus Formula

Clone Formula: Creed Aventus

Everyone loves Aventus by Creed. It is their number one best selling fragrance and probably the most cloned. Sauvage by Christian Dior and more recently Mont Blanc’s Explorer are very similar in style (Explorer being virtually a clone – and considered better than Aventus by some reviewers!)

When perfume reviewers and experts are asked “what fragrance most smells of money [in the metaphorical sense]”, Aventus is the immediate answer. It is sublime.

This formula is my own attempt to make a good clone of Aventus. It is based on GCMS data, inside information, and my own nose. Buy the formula here:

What Pineapple base did you use? Or do you have a formula for it aswell?
I cant seem to find one.
And would be Cassis Base 345F work too?
For Creosol i could use Guaiacol and for Costus root i would use Animalis 1745-03.
What do you think about that?

This is the Pina Colada Formula from Perfumers Apprentice.

Allyl Caproate – 10
Methyl Cinnamate – 10
Isopropyl Methyl 2 Butyrate – 10
Florhydral – 20
Vanillin @ 10% – 40
Galaxolide 50% – 50
Pharaone 10 – 50
Ethyl Maltol @ 1% – 70
Aldehyde C16 – 100
Aldehyde C18 – 130
Hedione – 250
Methyl Laitone 10 – 260

When i leave out Methyl Laitone and Aldehyde C18 would it work as a Pineapple base?

Sorry i dont know how to edit posts with the new commentar function.
For the Isobutyl Quinoline, Ive got CAS-NO: 68198-80-1
And i could get Cas-NO: 65442-31-1

Would one of them work?

Hi Jamie, how different is Neobutenone alpha from Dynascone as they both have same cas# and both are Firmenich products?

Can Spirogalbanone play any role here?

Thank you for the good suggestions.
The only thing left would be:
What could i do when i cant get my hands on Isobutyl Quinoline 2, the one with Cas-No:  93-19-6  even if its not as good then?

Hi Jamie,
Is there a something I could substitute for Coranol. I was ready to add it to an order at Pellwall but it’s out of stock, that’s most unfortunate… or maybe could I use tetrahydrolinalool and coriander seed?
Thanks!

Maybe Linalool leave natural isolate from Hermitage oils could be a good substitute, Reading the information it has very similar and powerful..

If U want to make this Formula, where did you get isobutyl quinoline with CAS: 93-19-6?
That isnt offered anywhere in small amounts i think.
I couldnt make it because of that, Just got a different isobutyl quinoline

Does it really depend on that Aroma chemical?
I am going to use pyralone I think because I couldn’t find it either.

Thanks, I am going to wait when Pell Wall has Coranol in stock again.
Vigon: If I buy something in weight of 1kg e.g. Hedione, maybe I could get a sample of 93-19-6…? Or do you need a business account for that?

I know you Said that you wouldnt substitute it but is there maybe a way even if it downgrades the scent a bit?
PellWall doesnt answer me when asking If they will Stock coranol again.
And Christine from PSH Said that she wont get it in the near future

I didn’t add Coranol to my order at Creating Perfume last time, I knew Pellwall had it but I forgot to check if it was in stock…, I found out the hard way when proceeding with an order at Pellwall: no Coranol in stock, that was pretty disappointing and I’d learned my lesson then…always check if the item you want is in stock.

Same issue here, I’ve emailed Pellwall and asked them friendly about my last order > they’ve delivered a wrong aroma chemical + I asked them about the restock of Coranol.. that was 2 weeks ago…I am not sure what’s going one but that’s certainly not the way to do business with frequent customers like me.

Allyl Caproate is which CAS number? There are many similar Ethyl / Allyl/ Caproate/ Ethyl and Allyl Hexanoate which are easily confused

Thanks for providing the Cas. It’s very confusing as you say Hexanoate and Caproate are the same however the issue is whether it is Ethyl or Allyl as there is an Ethyl Caproate and an Ethyl Hexanoate in additions to the Allyl’s.
There is an orchid like bordering pear or peach note that I detect IN SOME Aventus batches whereas others are Triplal dominant

This confuses me, since in your formula there is “Ethyl Caproate”, not “Allyl Caproate”. So, when you say “CAS 123-68-2″ (Allyl). Do you mean that’s the correct ingredient, and not what is in the original formula (Ethyl)??

Hm, I see, but Ethyl Caproate is Cas 123-66-0 not 123-68-2 http://www.thegoodscentscompany.com/data/rw1004811.html

Christine has sent me p-cresol and I bought isobutyl quinoline with CAS 93-19-16 its available at PSH! And I received Coranol, Creosol, Ambrox Super too, those where my missing ingredients for this formula ..It’s time to blend Clone Aventus !! I have to wait when I am back at work…that’s were I weigh and mix my ingredients on an analytical balance haha. I am at home for my holiday now.

I have Ambrox Super from liaision carbone and Ambroxan crystal from PSH (random supplier) that are big flakes. i personally like the ambroxan from PSH more when smelling need. its sweeter and projects more on its own. Its more like the Ambroxide by Sym

Hi Jamie, As I don’t have neobutenone alpha, you’ve told me in an email using spirogalbanone it’s ok.

My question is:

Would be even better using Galbascone IFF which is the same cas number than Neobutenone Alpha? I know you’ve not recommended using Dynascone

Thanks Jamie, As a Creed Aventus Lover, (in this moment I have 2 Bottles of the original: batches 2018 and 2019); I can tell you I have made my Aventus with your formula and I confirm it is truly faithful. Despite I’ve made it without some ingredients: Creosol, costus root, tobacarol, pink pepper co2, tropathiane, ethyl caproate and used galbascone instead of neobutenone. Thanks for all your atention. Just bought the Green Irtish Tweed, I’m sure it will be equaly good

Hi Jamie, in a few days I will have the missing materials to mix this formula, I can’t wait! I would like to ask you a question: I see a very high dose of Ambrox, in my little experience I have noticed that quite high doses of Ambrox make the perfume smell almost only of that. What makes the alchemy of the formula work without making it all smell like Ambrox? I have no doubts, your formulas are fantastic and I love them all, but I was wondering what makes such a high percentage of that material in the formula… Read more »

Fantastic! The comparison you made between Hedione and Ambrox really makes sense, thanks!
One last question: can I use real oakmoss instead of Evernyl? Evernyl has a more acidic and slightly aggressive character than oakmoss and is probably more appropriate to this scent, but I adore real oakmoss … You are the master, you decide! 😁

Your formula is helping me a lot in my studies.  
I’d like to ask you various questions.

Instead of comments, 
if there’s a comfortable way for you,
I will ask questions there from now on.

Please understand my poor English.

I am having a very difficult time finding Ambrox Super. Creating Perfume lists it, but it’s been out of stock for some time. Any other sources that are known? This is the only ingredient I am missing, and it seems like a pretty significant one.
