    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 :-)

    Body Kouros was also a nice sugestion, since it is sweet, and has the incense as well

    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.

    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!

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

    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!

    It smells great on my partner - sweet, sandalwoody and incensy. I don't think you can buy this blind judging by the reviews. It's a love or hate it frag!

    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!
