    Default Pure Havane vs Kokorico

    well I went to check in scents yesterday and saw pure havane and tried it, not a fan of the opening but later on it became nice, and on my other wrist was kokorico, well that thing gave me a nice vibe with cocoa and woodiness. So unfortunately I have the budget to buy only one of them as I might be ordering Guerlain Heritage. So any suggestions ?

    Pure Havane is nice, not a fan of Kokorico...if you really want that one, it has been discounted at several online sites. Guerlain is solid and a good one.

    Only sampled Kokorico once or twice and certainly wasn't blown away. PH the winner here for me.

    None. Get another Guerlain - L Instant Extreme that has similiar vibe as Kokorico but higher quality ingredients.

    Though I like both, Pure Havane would be my clear favorite.

    A*Men Pure Havane by Thierry Mugler would be my default choice. I don't even like Kokorico when I sampled it.

    Pure Havane is better, but I didn't mind Kokorico when I tried it. It's nothing spectacular, but it's a solid scent.

    After having two bottles of Pure Havane the choice is clear.

    I own and like both but I prefer the former.

    Pure Havane will win because Kokorico is hard to find in the states, and not many people have tried it.

    Never tried Pure Havane but own Kokorico. I do enjoy the latter and it can be found fairly cheap. Horrendous bottle though.

    Kokorico is incredibly underrated IMO. Silly bottle but fantastic scent.

    Never come across Pure Havane. Is it discontunued?

    I've both and I prefer PH. I like the opening of Kokorico but the dry down is average and it kills the fragrance.
