    The nose Annick Menardo, has a signature, rubber scent in most of her fragrances. If you smell bulgari black and fuel for life by diesel, and Lolita lempicka au Masculin, Jean paul's Kokorico, and boss bottled all her creations, they all have a dark Mystery burned rubber note. alone with a vanilla base synthetic vanilla base. This one Body Kouros is different it is Jean Paul Guiltier La Male with the Vanilla toned down.

    I think it has a lot of sex appeal and it goes on soft on the skin 2 foot silage and a 5 hour lasting power. Then re apply which isn't a bad thing you get to experience the notes in order again which i love the opening and mid on this one. My take after owing Kouros for so long i love reaching for the Flanker that smell totally different than the original. and the bottle warrants attention. nicely done Annick.

    a blind buy that ended in the trash can..too sweet and nauseating to me, maybe it was the reformulation..after using up more than half bottle could not stand it any longer!

    Sensual Masterpiece

    Very impressive ! I love Annick Menardo she is a true artist.

    A very deep and mysterious scent with a tip n touch of freshness.

    As said more here its not anything like the original! Its a totally new scent. I wish they named it : Taurus

    Where Kouros is Grey n white this is brown and a bit green of the fresh eucalyptus.

    This freshness is so distinct and little you barely notice it.

    Body Kouros has this extra lucious edge in it. Where LLAM is licorice and goumand, cosy and cuddly , BK is sensual and daring a bit edgy as a hot macho man.

    Wear it with confidence and women will pass you by with weakened knees ;-)

    Its a great warm glowing manly scent ... Alluring and romantic ... Great choice!

    5 stars!

    Pros: Alluring,sensual, exotic and erotic

    Muscular, sexual, animalistic heat, cooled down by eucalyptus.

    Not for kiddies. Body Kouros has an omni present and misty sillage in cooler weather. It's character suggests adult sensuality in those conditions: Winter air teams with the cool vapors of eucalyptus, to hold a brawny benzoin hostage...A touch kinky. But in warmer temperatures, the projection turns up the volume, provoking the beast, within. No longer suggesting... It goes Primal, with it's ardent, resiny sweetness.

    Either way, this one pushed one of my already favorite perfumers, Annick Menardo, to the TOP of my list.

    Provocative, and brilliant !

    ( and I'm not just talking about Annick. )

    Not what I was expecting

    BK is NOT what I was expecting. I was expecting a "fresher" more marine version of Kouros, with the old Kouros DNA still detectable. However, this is a completely new scent, not really a flanker. I am surprised I didn't read more of this in the other reviews, but to me it is very similar Bvlgari Black and JPG Le Male. Very sweet, androgynous, synthetic. I can see why people say dry (there is a woodsy freshness to it). Unlike comparing a sweet and dry wine (where the two terms are antonyms), it is possible in a fragrance (IMHO) to have both sweet and dry characteristics. I do not smell eucalyptus, although I do detect something mentholated. I gets woods, some incense, coumarin, vanillin, and some musk in the drydown (which I suppose is the link to the original Kouros). I find it quite linear, very good sillage, avg. longevity. The musk is clean, not animalic. There is no dirty civet here.

    The bottle is quite nice, though if the faux wood (like grey drift wood) were real, the bottle would have been a knock-out. And the price can't be beat.

    Pros: interesting, cool and sweet at same time, can't beat the price
    Cons: similar to some others done better"
