    I will never be without both....although my wife despises them equally.

    If you make me pick one? Kouraeus.

    Antaeus is very wearable versatile and manly elegant. Kouros smells good but it has the animalic aspect that I find to much when apply on me.
    Without hesitation I vote for Antaeus.

    I prefer Kouros because it is a unique fragrance.I like Antaeus but I don't consider that it is such an icon like Kouros.Moreover,I know a fragrance almost equal to Antaeus-Fendi.Admitedly,it is only a personal opinion.

    Antaeus is lovely, all plush rounded edges and that understated Chanel elegance. Kouros is about as understated as a 2x4 to the jaw. Of the two, Kouros actually lives up to its '80s-powerhouse rep and has apparently suffered less from the Reformulation Demon's wrath than Antaeus, which I've only smelled in its current iteration (although I generally take charges of reformulation with a grain of salt). Antaeus I'd wear to dinner with the parents or during a cozy evening at home in the dead of winter; Kouros I'd wear when I want to feel like a man-eating sex bomb driven mad by the summer heat. Antaeus sits flat on my skin and is content to rest on its good looks and charm; Kouros doesn't sit still and keeps talking back to me, always with something interesting to say. Antaeus is expensive, Kouros is cheap (well, comparatively). Antaeus I'd pack in my overnight bag in case we go someplace fancy; Kouros I'd take to a desert island, and beyond. Antaeus charms me, Kouros excites me. I voted Kouros.

    I also love both scents, and if we were comparing vintage versions of both I'd probably give the nod to Antaeus. But when comparing the versions now available I feel that Kouros is the far better reformulation.

    Many people may still find the new version of Antaeus more wearable and versatile than Kouros, despite, or perhaps even because of its reformulation which has removed much of its vitality.

    I have to vote for Kouros over the weakened Antaeus.

    I didn't feel them to be so different, not at least on my skin... I don't know which i prefer.
    I don't get any "urine note" neither: first time i tested kouros (untrained nose then) i hated it, then it felt like urine, some months later i tested it again and it smelled clean and glorious, and, in a way, similar to antaeus

    Antaeus is more wearable and agreeable to the public, so Antaeus.

    Woman butting in ... I love both - on men... but I think Anteaus wins over Kouros for general wearability.

    kouros is a masterpiece, an olfactory feast while antaeus seems just a tad messy, imo.

    While I find Kouros simply vile... I admit I like Antaeus a little bit. Chanel gets this 1!

    Antaeus i prefer,

    But Kouros last longer and has much more sillage.

    Antaeus - I find Kouros disgusting. I could see the case that Kouros has better sillage. Also, I could see both being a little scary to wear, but Antaeus is much safer IMO

    Antaeus is not as sickeningly sweet as Kouros on me. Also the lack of civet and the overall feel makes it very comforting. Don't get me wrong, I can tolerate civet - I just don't think Kouros does it adequately. Antaeus is warm, masculine, comforting and enjoyable.
