Hey guys! I'm stuck trying to pick a new fragrance for my partner for Christmas. He likes woody/sweet scents. As a guide his favourites are Kouros, Obsession for Men and Euphoria Intense. Mainstream suggestions would be appreciated as in my city you can't get the more fancy boutique stuff! I have so many ladies fragrances but I am clueless about men's colognes.
Thanks in advance!
is it kouros or body kouros?
if it's kouros, get him body kouros. it has kouros in the name, and actually quite a good sweet spicy incense-y stuff.
also consider eau des baux and chanel egoiste. and dare I say armani code? I do dare say it.
YSL Opium PH
Current TOP 7 from my collection:
1. Gucci Pour Homme II
2. Chanel Coromandel
3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
4. Encre Noire
5. Dior Homme Intense
7. Dior Homme
I was wondering if body kouros was nice, I have not had a chance to sniff. It's hard to test as a fragrance for him as our chemistry is different.
Funny you mention opium pour homme - Lewis tried it but prefers opium fleur imperiale :-)
Chanel Egoiste (not Platinum Egoiste)

Chanel Egoiste all the way
Tom Ford Oud Wood
How about some Zino Davidoff. A bit dark ( indolic), a bit floral and the dry down is a bit sweet and creamy. I love this fragrance. Not the easiest to wear, but since your BF likes Kouros, that should not be an issue
Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...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.
Please PM me !
Dior Homme Intense.
Lapidus pour homme
M7, Body Kouros, Jaipur Homme, Opium Pour Homme, Chanel Non-Platinum Egoiste, Heritage de Guerlain. I'm thinking more sandalwood/incensey with some of them, but M7 is totally for people who like Kouros, as it is also one of those scents that infringes on other people's personal space in a completely unmistakable way.
+1 Lapidus Pour Homme
You guys are awesome! Thanks for all of your awesome suggestions. Do you think he would like Dior Farenheit?
he's already shown a proclivity for bold and different scents with his favorites, and Fahrenheit by Dior is, indeed, bold, unique, complex and dark ... has my vote!
I highly recommend Lapidus Pour Homme also--Van Cleef and Arpels Pour Homme too!!!
Gucci Pour Homme
+4 Lapidus Pour Homme
Kouros??? Umm, anything but...try Axe!
Looking to swap…look for my thread on the trade page. May be interested in buying Amouage. Having fun with shower gels. If you want to get rid of yours or swap for frags, give me a shout!
There are some great suggestions listed above. Fahrenheit is a great suggestion.
I was thinking of purchasing Kouros over the holidays. I was wondering what your own impression of Kouros is?
Thanks in advance
+1 for Zino and Fahrenheit.

I bought Joop! Homme for him already for Christmas which I think is a bit of a gamble. I want to buy him something else which I can be sure he will def enjoy. All of your suggestions have been so helpful I feel a bit informed now - yay!
