Summary: As an amateur perfumist, working with civet is kind of a nightmare. In Kouros, the civet is dominant and strongly persisting, announcing it's presence from the initial spray until the very dry-down. This is a fragrance celebrating an image of a young Greek man, standing naked in his glory to be admired and celebrated. It's not for the faint-hearted, the feeble and the cowardly. Oh no!
Summary: This one gives me that rock star vibe. Not the Adam Levine, Bono type but the Jimmy Page, Mick Jagger, Jim Morrison type. Those who slither, sweat and moan onstage like its nobody's business. Dirty, soapy, and sweet all at the same time, Kouros is a real powerhouse and a fragrance on a level all its own. Rock on!
Summary: I am smelling the vintage and oh- what a stunner! So rich and opulent. I don't see why a vixen scene-stealer couldn't wear this as well as a sexy man- it is much more an oriental- dripping with amber- than it is a fougere. The dryness of that side of its genes comes through, don't get me wrong, but it basks in its own glory like only an oriental can... I swear I'd faint if the right person wore this and passed me by!
Summary: Well, i try Kouros and think "not bad, i could wear it". My wife smell the sample several feet away and say "mmm that fragance smell good". I smile and approached her, but when sniffed the fragrance close make a face and say "what is that smell in the background?". Yes the Civet note make her change is mind about Kouros and change from "i like" to "dislike". My young sister make faces also and dislike, my mom says that smell good.
Excerpt: I started using this in the 80's, and lost sight of it in the 90's. So glad I found it again. It will never leave my sight again. Compliments from the ladies of all ages, and even some men. Highly recommended.
Pros: Clean & Fresh, Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Long-Lasting, Sensual, Sexy
