    Even my Santos Concentree smells WEAK. Weaker than Antaeus.

    Kouros is the king for me.

    Never smelled the vintage versions of any of them. If Santos Concentree would be much stronger i would like it most

    Antaeus. It just smells right and lasts forever.

    Antaeus just barely beats Kouros for me, for today anyway.

    Despite all of them being classics, it's all about the smell, and Antaeus just smells BEAUTIFUL, even in its current incarnation. Now that I am on my second bottle, I realize the folly of being without Antaeus for almost a year, a sin that I have since recently rectified. It's unique, and no, it's certainly NOT dated, not to me in any case! Wear it proudly, with the confidence that only such a beauty entails.

    If I could go santos concentree that would be the winner for me. Original version, I would go with Antaeus

    I think this is relatively easy to answer. Santos and preferably the Concentree version which is just a fantastic fragrance.

    Followed by Antaeus which although I think is a beautifully blended fragrance, lacks that final oomph that Santos brings.

    Kouros I used to wear when it first came out and I don't own a bottle of it now. Which I think says it all.

    Wow - tough call. I won't answer.

    They kind of all live in the same neighborhood to me.

    I love Antaeus but Kouros has ten times as much character as the other two combined. Santos Concentree is worthy. Regular Santos is as grating and unpleasant as they come.

    1. Kouros (vintage)
    2. Antaeus (vintage)
    3. Santos Concentree (vintage)

    Kouros
    IMO Santos has dark synthetic base which i don't like it, and Kouros is better than Santos by far. I have not tried Antaeus

    Easy choice for me as I have never liked/owned Kouros.....I have always liked and appreciated Santos but have never purchased...Which leaves Antaeus which I have owned in it's original formula and recently sampled and found that I liked it better in it's current reformulation...it is on my "to buy" list.....

    Kouros. Antaeus is easier to wear but less satisfying. Last time i smelt santos it's drydown was just "wrong"

    Antaeus Vintage or Antaeus Sport Cologne Vintage (now on e_Bay) as the latter retains the beeswax and leather of the original but has a more herbal feel.

    Well, I have to say Kouros in spite of my liking vintage Antaeus quite a bit. Kouros is nasty masculinity in a bottle and makes no apologies.

    It also has dramatic effects on women. They either can't stand the smell of it ( like alot of male members here) or are drawn to it without realizing why ( again....like alot of male members here). Kouros is the Mike Tyson of frags and even if you don't like it, you had better respect it.

    Used all three constantly from their launches. Tough call, but it would have to be Kouros. With the scarcity of Balenciaga pour Homme nowadays, there is not much that even smells like the big K. There are several alternatives to Antaeus and Santos though.

    Never enjoyed Kouros. I love Antaeus and Santos Concentrate and both are in my top 5 but I would choose Santos only because it's more versatile.

    Haven't tried Santos. Out of the two remaining, I'd vote for Kouros
