    Kouros Tattoo Edition by Yves Saint Laurent

    I find this to be the one version of Kouros that smells like Kouros and yet is not difficult for me to wear with confidence.

    Original Kouros can remind some of pee, Kouros Cologne Sport can remind some of poo (manure specifically), but this is the one that is "just right". It has the unmistakeable clovey, incensey, patchouli/fresh laundry Kouros signature. The animalic notes are dialed back quite a bit. The added fresh notes here are rather full bodied and fleshy-- not like the wan, screechiness of many modern clean scents.

    This one is very modern, yet still edgy with its retro overtones. It has all the best parts of Kouros, while being easier to wear.

    Put Kouros on a shelf; take the white bottle down occasionally to sniff and admire-- but this is the one to wear.
