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
TOP 3 hot weather:
1. Gucci Pour Homme II
2. Lalique Encre Noire
3. Creed Millesime Imperial
TOP 3 cold weather:
1. Dior Homme
2. Eau Des Baux
3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
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 Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage), Concentré D'Orange Verte...etc.

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!
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!
