    Kouros by Yves Saint Laurent

    I can understand what people mean when they call this scent pornographic and also when they say things like it smells like an overcrowded men's room. it does have a sleazy "hanging out in the men's room for illicit purposes" quality. Several people have noted the combination of male body fluid smells and whatever scent some companies use to scent urinals. Both of those are definitely there to my nose, but there is also quite a dose of incense, which complicates matters. Yves must have gotten quite a kick out of this fragrance getting so popular. It's pretty subversive really. Kudos to him for that. I have a bottle, but I wear it selectively. Also, it's potent, so apply sparingly and the longevity is forever. You'll still smell it you on the subway after a long night. This one's a sleazy guilty pleasure for sure.
