    Default Which one, Versace The Dreamer or Body Kouros??

    Hey guys, I'm thinking about adding either The Dreamer or Body Kouros to my collection. I'm 20 and in college so I go out a lot, so it wouldn't hurt to know which one girls would probably like better too I'm sure most of you guys have these and have had some feedback from them, so which one do you guys recommend?

    Thanks!

    Body Kouros is better tailored for a party, Dreamer better for a one-on-one date I would say. Buy both, both are $30 a bottle, you won't regret it

    Body Kouros without hesitation.

    I could see the Dreamer working well in dates like you said Sidney. Which one do you say projects better/more though?

    I'll probably end up buying both eventually.

    are you the player type or romantic type?

    Haha I like your view of it, I would say neither but I'd rather be a romantic than a player so I'm guessing you're saying go with the Dreamer mate unless you say Kouros than that would be an unexpected twist...

    Didn't we just have this exact thread like 2 days ago?

    Anyways...Body Kouros is good for going out, but too sleazy for class. Dreamer would work better for both situations.
    What I've been wearing far too much of lately:

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

    Sorry if a similar thread was posted :\ didn't see it. But thanks for the advice, good to know that the Dreamer will do good in both situations

    Definitely Body Kouros for me. I just don't care for the tobacco note and strong opening of the Dreamer. To me, Body Kouros is sexier, sweeter, and more comfortable.

    I think Dreamer might work well for someone who smokes. (I know some don't get it, but I pick up a pretty strong tobacco note on my skin).

    I would say Body Kouros. As someone who has owned both at one time, I really don't see where people are coming from when they say Dreamer is a romantic/seductive type scent. To me, it's something I more wore to play cards or go to the track, not for a date. At least Body Kouros is sweet, which the younger women seem to like. I will say both are unique, so if that matters to you at all, you can't really go wrong with either.

    Dreamer is to my nose more versatile and easier to like by anyone, while Body Kouros is more love love/hate fragrance and it is the one as Jonny already posted, that player or man whore would wear.

    Versace The Dreamer is indeed a highly adaptable scent, more suitable both for romantic wear but at same time for semi-formal, smart-casual occasions

    Body Kouros projects much better, which is why I think it tailors itself far better to a party type atmosphere where you're surrounded by a number of people and you can create a certain air about you. Dreamer can be very close to the skin, especially in the latter parts of the drydown, so I think it works better in a date in that regard where it encourages your date to want to get closer to you to catch a whiff whereas with Body Kouros she can probably do so from across the table. I wouldn't really put these two in the same category, very different but both very well done

    Anything smells better (to me) than the dreamer...

    And I think body kouros smells good.

    Dreamer by a long shot. Le Male did what Body Kouros does, but better. And Le Male doesn't even hold a candle to The Dreamer.

    Default Re: Which one, Versace The Dreamer or Body Kouros??

    I can see now how each works best, I'll probably buy dreamer first. I heard its dry down is stands out pretty well. Gotta wear it more at night though it gets hot down here in Miami

    The opening was sweeter than I thought it would be, but it toned down quickly and became more subtle. I definitely got a woodsy feel from it as it started drying down with a little spiciness. And the project/longevity is above average first couple of hours then it starts to become closer to the skin. Its a great scent IMO and has a mysterious and exotic yet fresh feel to it.
