Sooner or later every reviewer worth his salt must try Kouros. I have, and I can say that this was an intriguing experience.
As many have noted, this is a very, very retro scent. Quinessentially macho 80's. Very spicy, sweet, rich, and heavy. The exuberant oakmoss gives it a leathery twang and the ambergris delivers an intense baby-powder sweetness. Yin-yang: tough guy with a sensitive side.
There is no doubt that this is an absolutely beautiful scent. I applied one little spritz and that was plenty!
Even a little too much and we could be in the gold chains, shirt open to the navel, leathery tan scenario. The coriander/clove could (in larger applications) suggest a sweaty body. If judiciously applied, they merely convey a barbershop.
This scent is not at all my style. I would never wear it. But I do recognize that it is a classic.
