First Why are you post Kouros vs Joop and than your telling us no need to compare.
I like Kouros, because it is a real powerhouse fragrance and I think Kouros is King, but I dont like Joop,because it is not true powerhouse fragrance and Joop doesn't have attitude and swagger in it,Joop it's very synthetic, very sweet, very strong,Kouros have all qualities to be powerhouse fragrance,but Joop it is a very sweet.
I think Kouros is a mysterious fragrance,One of the best perfumes I have ever used, I am full of energy when I wear it.Kouros is strong incensed scent, with monster sillage and incredible longevity.Kouros can last 2 days, if you don't shower.It smells like a urinal cake, but it works.... but something about it is good.If you like Caron Yatagan, then Kouros might provide you with an alternative on the days when you want something a bit sweeter and more animalic.
If you like Chanel Antaeus, then you might like to try Kouros as an even more sophisticated and masculine fragrance.
If the star anise and synthetic note in Azzaro pour Homme are beginning to bother you, then Kouros might provide you with an equally masculine alternative.It is very powerful,Kouros is a love it or hate it frag....
Joop is a Love it or hate it frag,Smells sweet and nice.But to sweety for me, The longetivity and silliage is good,Like a girl of 17 who wore too much blusher to the ball, this is about as subtle as a Spice Girls song: it's a gaudy, sickly sweet, cherry thud. The horribly synthetic notes will make your toes curl, the mellower cinnamon and tomato undertones have announced many a gauche teenager at the disco up and down the land.A high school/ college cologne for me. Reminds me of those times, but wouldn't wear it now.king of the sweet gourmand fragrances.
