    Think I'll commit Hari Kari if SMW loses this one.

    I just hope the anti Kouros brigade doesn't come out in full force and push this out of the game.

    Double smackdown for me in the last round, ouch. I went with BdP over M7 because I'm SO ready for spring and lighter scents, and MR over HR because Ubuandibeme likes it so much! Hi, Ubu! :wave:

    My Gators lost too.

    feels like Kouros is looking down at Eau noire like some tom of finland ad :P

    my vote goes to Kouros and SMW

    Thanks to a very kind Basenoter, I was able to sample Eau Noire and I really hope it wins this match ! The tops notes are a bit....spicy and peppery for me, but the dry down is really good. Go Dior !
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Concentré D'Orange Verte...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    More HERE
    Please PM me !

    It's not surprising to me that Kouros is beating Eau Noire, at least thus far. It's actually a pretty cool matchup between Eau Noire and Kouros when you think about it. Both are incredibly polarizing scents. On the one hand you have Kouros and Pee Group vs. The Pee-U group (). With Eau Noire you get the group that don't care for the immortelle, and then those that are deliriously in love with it. There doesn't seem to be any middle ground with either. Unfortunately for my choice, Eau Noire, I think the combination of relative obscurity plus the strength of the Kouros Fan Club are going to spell an exit for the great Eau Noire.

    Edit: Oh yea DOWN WITH KOUROS! We wash for a reason!

    This is going as expected and largely as predicted, many people are gonna get 4 points off of this one.

    I was hoping for an old favorite L'Eau d'Issey pH and the more obscure Dior Eau Noire to get through but there's no getting past the Kouros & Creed fan clubs...

    Ah, Silver Mountain Water. After trying what seems like 50 or so woody-fresh-aquatics very few, if any, come close to the successful best-in-class blend of trusty ol' SMW. Sorry L'eau d'Issey (and any other pretenders) SMW is just too slick for you all.

    No such floral language for Kouros...it will just manhandle Eau Noire.
