    Kouros by Yves Saint Laurent

    Wow! I haven't smelled this since 1981 when it first came out. I bought this after high school graduation, my first cologne purchase. I thought the bottle was cool and didn't know a thing about fragrance (I don't know that much now either for that matter). My scent memory was immediate when I sampled this again. I barely applied any to my skin and it exploded in my face. What a composition! Intense, forward, unafraid, very little nuance. I appreciate the presence. What others smell as urine/urinal cake, I smell heavy, decaying vegetation. My wife actually doesn't turn her nose up to this one. Gotta appreciate that.
