Summary: When I ordered Kouros from Amazon I was not sure if I would be getting the new formulation. The picture advertising this fragrance was the bottle used for the old formulation. But I received the new formulation and it was in the new formulation bottle too. The seller should advertise this product in the new formulation bottle so customers will know which formulation they are getting. I am a little disappointed but I still like what I received in the mail from the seller.
Summary: I was expecting something that would bowl me over backwards like the dreaded Secretions Magnifique, but what I smelt was pure and utter bliss. The reason I enjoy Kouros so much is probably because I adore animalic and musky fragrances. I also don't mind the odd touch of patchouli every now and then in all its earthy glory. Kouros goes on strong and unforgiving. It's one of those fragrances that say, "here I am, deal with it!
Summary: Holy wow. I have read some reviews saying that Kouros has been reformulated and is weaker, or toned down from what it used to be. If this is the case, I can't imagine how potent it was before reformulation. Lordamercy. So anyways, on to the scent. The opening is funky and strange. Has some incense going on, and God knows what all. But it is loud, and funky. Just hold your horses, because this monster dries down to be one smooth, long lasting work of art.
