Summary: One evening I was visiting my stepfather, spending time with him as every stepson should do. Anyway I had to visit the bathroom as we were planning on going out. So I was in need of a shave and freshen up, upon finishing up, I wanted a fragrance to smell good and as I opened the bathroom cabinet I...
Summary: Kouros is still my favorite masculine on the market and, along with Yatagan, the best deal. If you love the smell, it becomes truly addictive, and the clean-dirty dichotomy present in all my favorites--Angel, Amouage Gold, Yatagan--is key to my continued fascination.
Summary: I used to hate this one. Now all I smell is Equipage by Hermes with a tiny animalic dose in the opening. My nose made a U turn on this fragrance! Genius composition! One of the few scents where I can detect cinammon and flowers and musk in a perfect harmony.

Summary: Cosonostra I own 4 versions of it and there is a massive difference in terms of depth and complexity with the vintage versions. The main difference is the strong deep musks, the resinous honey and smokey incense are gone , the civet is also toned down, I also do not detect any sandalwood.
