    Poll: Re: Kouros versus Aventus Poll

    Kouros all the way. To me Aventus is dull.
  94. Poll: Re: How many bottles of Kouros do you own, 50 or 100 ml? POLL.

    One 50ml bottle. It's a staple, so I'll restock. I also have 100 ml old bottle of Body Kouros.

    It's getting harder to find. Something tells me it's not discontinued yet, but I could be wrong.

    I detested it just like Fahrenheit. Today they're the staples of my collection.

    That one is occassionally on my mind, but never a part of the collection. Now that I see it's a subject here, I want it! :D
