Summary: Powerhouse fragrance of the 80`s that lasts all day long. I want to use it on me but unfortunately the Civit ( animal testicals or something like that) makes me smell like piss. So I had to go for something similar i.e. Aramis classic. I just think that I am one of them people who cannot wear Civit.
Summary: YSL should try to make Kouros EdP, more minimalistic, modern with hihger quality ingredients. Still very much masculine and rugged. In a round white/transparent glass bottle (think of Fahrenheit 32) this perfume wound be an instant hit!
Summary: I feel like many people shy away from this one because it lacks the foodsy sweet notes the most "modern" aromatic fougeres incorporate (I am looking at you, Fuel for Life). The top notes feel pungent and overbearing, but herbal in my opinion - almost like plants trying to imitate an animalic scent...
Summary: Great stuff - dirty smoky start, sweet florals and patchouli with a clean musky finish. All this happens over the course of a day, even in the latest incarnation. I've a small sample bottle from the early 90's, a bottle from '07 and a bottle from '12. They're all noticeably different.
Summary: Despite the reformulations, Kouros is still a powerhorse that retains all the spirit of the 80s. Incense, dirty musks and clean soap. The combination of dirtiness and cleanliness is what makes Kouros great. A classic.
Summary: I have just received a small sample of this juice. Whilst I have always thought this is amazing (and it is), I hate to say it, but I don't see myself wearing this. It would be redundant on me. This is the manliest fragrance I have ever smelled, and I'm more of an powdery-oriental fragrance guy.
