    Default suggestions for a kouros addicted boyfriend?

    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.

    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 :-)

    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 Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    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.

    I will go on a M7 sniffing mission. He is keen on sandalwood for sure.

    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 also agree with this one. It has some power, but very unique and interesting in these days of JPG Le Male overload.
    And perhaps check out the Bogart fragrances!

    He probably would like fahrenheit, it lacks sweetness though. Fahrenheit Absolute might be worth trying too.
