    Default Anyone watch the Bachelor?

    My g/f watches...in fact she's watching now...and I'm on my computer and it looks like the bachelor, Peter, rocks some sort of Kouros. Anyone else see that?

    (Yeah, I'm bored in front of the TV.)

    Not by choice. Thankfully, I've been moonlighting when I'm home from work now...so I sit on my computer and listen to the women cry all night on the show while my wife watches. Usually I can watch some pretty crappy reality TV but this show is my least favorite after the singing and dancing shows. Maybe I'll have to keep a blind eye on this new guy.

    My wife watches it. I'd be surprised that he wears Kouros. Where did you see that? My wife still has it recorded, I think. I can try to pull up the picture if you can remember when it was. It was 3 hours though, I'm not searching that blindly!
    Itís tragic to think that heroic manís great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    It was literally in the first few minutes. He was putting on his dress shirt and cuff links I think.

    I don't know the context of the scene, and I don't doubt the guy is sophisticated enough to use it, but it could have been placed there by the producers. Or maybe the costume designer or set decorator.
    Their wardrobes are provided and/or chosen for them, so it's safe to assume this would be the same deal.

    While having not watched this particular scene, though familiar with the show in at least two languages/national versions (possibly even more if zapping through more channels from different countries where this show is either aired, syndicated/adapted or all at once) did never associate the respective titular characters with Kouros-and this is not even a slight criticism towards Kouros.

    However would have imagined the fashionable, always perfectly styled and flawless looking, hip, attractive, fashion conscious single associated with something like Clive Christian, several Amouage or TF exclusive fragrances at least. Not because they are necessarily the best, while admittedly being very good, but simply because they seem to be and are heavily marketed among the likeliest choices for the young, hip, fashion conscious rich and famous demographics.

    I remember having seen an episode of the German Bachelor tv show years ago and there was an Invictus bottle in the bachelor's bathroom which (as you could imagine) was hard to overlook.

    I have the older body Kouros with the "non-Kouros" thin, tall, odd bottle. This looks like new Body Kouros or maybe Kouros Silver in bad lighting.

    I am thinking it’s Kouros Silver, not Kouros Body.

    Here's my bottle - bought it ~ 15 years ago.
    Is that what you consider as "vintage"?

    My bad. I think it’s the new bottle of Body Kouros.

    Totally an aside, now that we're talking Body Kouros: any significant difference from the original release bottle version? Other than concentrating/aging? New version is OK but was wondering if it would be worth seeking out the older one.

    I haven't tried the new Body Korous recently and can't comment on that.
    But I have tested the newer Opium Pour Homme EDT and compared it to my old mid 2000s bottle - and that was a difference. The older one smells just better and is more intense.
    So I guess it's the same with Body Korous.
