    They are nearly identical so it doesn't matter much. Seriously, they are about as different as is possible, only sharing a bit of a musky quality. Just read the reviews and you should get a good idea of which one will work for you.

    Kouros by a mile, if we're talking about the vintage. No opinion on the reformulated version.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    I don't find these two fragrances all that different in smell. I am surprised no one else has mentioned this. I would choose Kouros just because it is a well known classic.
    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.

    What's ironic about that

    Kouros IS a very refreshing fragrance.

    Vintage Kouros...an epic masterpiece. Nothing against anyone who chose Mont Blanc Individuel.

    To each, their own. Being the most polarizing scent in the universe, you could have put Kouros against any scent to get the people who dislike it to chime in. To me, you cannot compare. The ultimate question is - are you masculine enough to wear Kouros, or would Kouros wear you?

    Cheers,

    Kouros will always have a place on the "mount Olympus" of all time classic masculine fragrances. MBI is a generic cookie cutter shelf filler which will be out of production in next to no time, to make way for the next "big release".

    I'll also add that there is too much estrogen in this thread
