    Default Body Kouros (2000) vs Kouros (1981)

    My vote is for Kouros. Ir rocks !
    What's yours ? Please explain if you can.
    In terms of longevity, sillage and smell, of course.

    P.S. In longevity, surely Kouros is better.

    they both have their charms, BK is thick, sillage is mayhaps more moderate, but the scent itself is intimate, erotic - definitely for romantic encounter.

    Kouros is a potent monster that is more like - in your face. Nothing subtle about it, no hidden messages. It clearly states ˝I'm a guy with cojones del toro˝

    Well, to be frank, honest and apposite...I do prefer "Kouros" It's much more of a refined scent..in the fact that it's staple to it's own category. It has a radiance and sillage like none other...also, is proven to be evocative on ones skin, Ie; will differentiate different scents on each user of Kouros".


    Body Kouros is a great scent aswell..though stops at "Great". Is a nice incense frag...has minor flaws and can surely be appreciated by many!! Is a great night club scent aswell IMO!

    Though, another one for the Kouros-Kudo Meter!

    I've never sampled the original kouros and frankly I'm a little afraid to. Body Kouros on the other hand is in my rotation right now and I think it's really dope. It's sensual but refreshing and casual enough at the same time. Win-win.

    I still need to give Kouros another chance, I need to see how it develops on my skin for couple of more times before I decide if it'll be a part of my collection.

    Kouros is and always will be King. While Body Kouros is a good fragrance, it pales in comparison to the original - and really should not even share the name.

    I like them both.
    The original, created by Pierre Bourdon, stands tall; a giant, unrelenting, 80s masculine.
    Body Kouros from 2000, on the other hand, is more of a Metro-sexual type fragrance. Annick Menardo did an oriental, similar to her other creations: Hypnotic Poison, Ja´pur and Lolita Lempicka.
    The one thing they have in common, other than the incense note, is that they both smell very much of their time.

    I tried Kouros, but found it repulsive. It smelled of urinal cakes.

    I personally like Kouros more than Body Kouros.

    I like and own both, but if I had to choose between them I'd go with Kouros without a doubt.

    It's not one of my favorite fragrances but I respect it very much. For me its not the monster that it is made out to be. I don't find it overpowering or overly long lasting or all that animalic or urinous. Just a very fine, very dry, masculine chypre.

    Default Re: Body Kouros (2000) vs Kouros (1981)

    Each to its own. That would be a tough choice.
    Body Kouros is sensual, every woman loves it, no doubt about it.
    Kouros is a beast, it is like you are walking around with a whiplash and start whipping around, all will notice you.

    I choose Body Kouros only for the privilege that I could wear it almost every day safely.

    Body Kouros easily. Kouros reeked of urinal cakes when I smelled it while Body Kouros is sensual, sweet, incensey, unique and a great compliment getter. Kouros is very offensive and I can't understand why people would want to smell like a urinal cake. Maybe it smells differently from a urinal cake on some people.

    Well, as others have said, they are nothing alike and I enjoy them both, but if I had to pick one, it would be a very easy choice - KOUROS!!!

    In fairness, I've never tried Body Kouros, but the overwhelming sense I get is that there is little common ground if any between them. Body Kouros may be a fine scent, but if someone likes Kouros, there's no point in asking the question.

    There is no reason to compare the two, unless you believe that words can influence the smell of a frag. Kouros is a "power" frag, common for when it was released but "retro" now. It has a lot of notes, some of which you can detect, but gets it's "signature" from the blend.

    BK has a couple of strong notes, and less notes overall. It is a different kind of frag as well. Both are strong, which is the only major similarity.

    I haven't tried Kouros if I'm honest. But, in my opinion Body Kouros smells like warm sugary milk and Weetabix! Maybe I've got a dodgy bottle?

    They're very different frags to me, linked only by name and designer.

    If I could only have one, it would be Kouros.

    But I can have both and I do. I find them both excellent.

    Kouros...I can't stand the burnt sugar opening of Body Kouros, though the drydown is rather nice.

    My vote is definitely for Kouros.

    I cannot compare Kouros with anything, for it's such a beast! Look at the kind of controversy it's stirred up over the years (almost three decades up after the launch and people are still debating on it [rolling eyes] ).

    Body Kouros is a baby seal while Kouros is a salt water crocodile.

    Please make fair comparisons in the future. If you're pulling Kouros into a comparison, bring something substantial against it. In other words, never send a sheep to kill a wolf.
