    2 great scents. I voted BK . I don't think it smells better but it's better because it's not as common as JPG Le Male.

    can't understand the obsession with Le Male around here. I think it's an average scent at best.

    Body Kouros, however, is wonderful.

    I actually came across BK in a mall store today and got a chance to give it a sniff again. I liked it much better than the first time I smelled it which was quite a while ago. I think my nose could have been influenced by other things I was trying that day way back when in the store. I should have given my hand a spray though. Just to get an idea of what the dry down progresses like.

    I have BK, and find it interesting at first, but relentlessly linear. Seriously - does anyone find it evolving at all?
    I actually just received a sample of Body Kouros today, and its top and middle notes definitely reminds me of Lolita Lempicka AM's -- but Body Kouros' sillage is a little weaker. Also, Lolita Lempicka AM's base notes is very similar to Le Male's -- but less sweeter. So for me, Lolita Lempicka AM is almost like a crossbreed between Body Kouros and Le Male.

    Imagine my dismay when I figured out recently that every man I've ever fallen for has smelled of a version of Le Male (clean, masculine floral, a little bit of candle wax), and that this is the smell I find most irresistible, possibly in the whole world. Maybe it's by association then that for me Le Male holds an accord in its heart of sperm and clean sheets. And it's so delicious that I want to gulp it down in heady mouthfuls.

    After spending more time with Body Kouros, I would choose it over Le Male. It's really fantastic.

    Le Male has been pretty meh for me. I never got the hype.

    I have full bottles (both repeat purchases) of both, and like both... but wouldn't be without Body Kouros!

    They smell completely different to me and Le Male has a nicer smell.

    is suggesting neither an option? I think there are better ones out there.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    I own both....give me Le Male. Check the notes....they do not smell the same. The benzoin in Body Kouros makes me sick lol. That's personal though but it slaps me in the face at first spray.

    Big fan of Body Kouros, it got my vote. Scent aside, I find it admirable that it survived reformulation remarkably well. From what I read here, I know that's not the popular opinion, but I think it's great in it's current form.

    Body Kouros, without a doubt.

    This quote here sums up how I feel about BK and LM:
    Quote Originally Posted by Zgb View Post

    The 2nd reformulation of Body Kouros can get VERY cloying to me. That eucalyptus turns oil-y... like gasoline... and then rubber-y... like Bvlgari Black.

    I prefer the 3rd reformulation of Body Kouros. It's much more "likable", the sweetness has been ramped up and the industrial accord scaled way back. I have never been able to sample the original formulation. I can only imagine how beautiful it was.
    Never leave the house without six sprays.

    My Top 5:
    1. Xeryus Rouge (vintage)
    2. Womanity
    3. Perry Ellis "m"
    4. Truth or Dare by Madonna
    5. Alien Absolue

    I blind bought this around 6 months back and couldn't be happier ...as its quite deep / sexy & well rounded evening scent ....totally dig it ( in fact I find it more alluring than kouros )

    Vintage Body Kouros is killer.

    Newer formulation of both, I'd go with... Body Kouros...

    I've never cared for Le Male.
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
