[Costco] Creed Aventus is back @ Costco! (YMMV)

I just picked up one 120ml bottle of Creed Aventus at Costco in Calgary for $59. This is a big YMMV because of how rare it is. They go for $500 at most places.

Goodluck.

Wow, what a deal.

Sadly, never seen Creed in any Costco in the GTA.

Saw one in Burlington when the original thread first surfaced however it was already in someone's cart. Kept a look out for it with no luck. Bought one off kijiji for 200.. i googled the sellers name and he is a manager at Costco. Another kijiji seller who i messaged but already sold was also a Costco manager. It's a very unique scent and I'm happy with it for the price. If it's the 15x01 or 15x21 batch then it's a steal for $60. The batches from 2016 and on do not smell the same (not good).

What an idiot, if the wrong people knew that he was scooping up store inventory on the cheap and selling it off on kijiji he'd be fired on the spot.

You mean vomit?
When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

Based on the last thread, the quest for Aventus led to me discover some amazing gems such as Terre D'Hermes and forums like Basenotes and Fragrantica.

Since then I've given up on Aventus and now own more diverse and unique fragrances such as Faqat Lil Rijal, and Boruzz Indonesia from the house of Rasaasi which I picked up from Dubai last year. Amazing oud bombs.

I also own Aventus alternatives such as Club De Nuit Intense by Armaf and Avenue by AlRehab($5). Nothing but compliments.

There's a new Aventus alternative called Pineapple Vintage which is being widely reviewed on YouTube and highly recommended by fragheads.

Check out MrSmelly1977, Fragboy Stewie and Cuba Know on YouTube.

Dave, where did you get the info on what batch is good? A forum or something you can link? I got a 15x01

If someone finds one from Costco in Calgary and don't mind picking up an extra, I'll buy it off them at cost plus $20. I won't be going to costco today but tmr if I find one I'll pick up an extra for a fellow rfder at cost.
