    Default YSL Body Kouros VS Burberry London or Burberry Brit

    Hey, I wanted to get a fragrance for the winter and I was thinking in between the three of them. The winter here is heavy so I wanted to get something that is going to last on my skin but also going to project around me ( is an attention wh*re ) for around 6 hours.
    I really loved the smell of London but I heard that it doesnt last much. Brit is similar to it but more powdery. Kouros is nice but really muscular.
    Anyways, I wanted to get an opinion from someone who has tried them all in the winter. Thanks.

    P.S. I am more interested on attracting male audiences too.

    Weclome!

    I prefer Burberry Brit of the three. I also prefer attracting male audiences also.

    Body Kouros... don't intend to attract the male audience, but it's my favourite of the three and on my to-buy list. Burberry... well i still have to find one i like...

    Brit, if you like powdery scents.

    My vote goes for Body Kouros.

    Have you sniffed M7 by YSL?

    If you want something more in tune with Kouros, try Body Kouros (though the two are quite different from each other)

    If you want something to stand out, project, impress not just through the powerhouse manliness of the notes, but also with a sense of style and elegance and which is also very suitable for winter wear, give Burberry London a try

    I will say Body Kouros but tough too choose. I really enjoy all three for what each brings to the table

    London Burberry is the best of those IMO. Unfortunately its longevity is so poor that its close to useless (at least to me it is). Body Kouros isnt bad either so I would pick that one if I was you.

    Body Kouros is the only one that fits all of your criteria. They're all good scents though...the only answer is to buy them all!
    What I've been wearing far too much of lately:

    -Amouage Lyric Man
    -Guerlain Gourmand Coquin
    -Creed Jardin d'Amalfi

    I think it depends on how you want to exude your image to others. If you want people to think you are

    A flamboyant guy who wear tight-jeans, neon color shirts ==> Brit
    A sexy, sensual guy with muscles and tight shirt with some opened buttons ==> Body Kouros
    A mature guy who has settled down ==> London (this one gives me the "married with kids" kind of vibe )

    I agree with Body Kouros, if it works for a girl why shouldn't it work for a guy as well ?
    Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.

    Welcome to Basenotes!!

    Very very close between London and Body Kouros, very evenly matched in my opinion (although completely different).

    As a man, I'd prefer to smell London on another man. My girlfriend, however, prefers Body Kouros.

    Kouros smelled to me like some cleaning product for the bathroom :/

    I did. Cant say I enjoyed it though.


    Well, so far Body Kouros has the most votes, and since it has the best longevity I guess I will get this one and see how things go.


    Thanks everyone for your suggestions!

    Yeah, all due respect to Ken_Russell - I don't find Kouros and Body Kouros similar in any way, shape or form.

    I have owned Body Kouros and Burberry London and I really like them both, but with your criteria the answer is Body Kouros. London indeed smells good, but in the long run you might bored with it. So Body Kouros it is.
    Please check out my selling list:

    YSL Opium homme EDP, Rive Gauche pour homme, Villoresi Uomo, Dior Homme vintage, Body Kouros, Guerlain homme intense etc.

    London would be my top choice here I didn't like body kouros that much. Although your criteria states "attention whore" so body kouros would fit that better IMO.
