I think I have it figured out, but perhaps the reason why Kouros is so often over-applied (and thus despised) is that unlike other scents, the spray is such a non-event that people use more than is necessary. It is not even like a normal spray ("pssst" or "pffft"), but a "puh". Perhaps it should come with a sound effect or something--like a bomb going off, a shotgun, or a woman moaning--to signal that something major just happened.
The reason I write this is because Kouros is major juice--a rare example of an edt that contains edp power, sillage, and longevity--yet people mistakenly think that because so little emerged from the spray they'll need more. Big mistake. In reality, you only need about one to two.
Any thoughts on this?
I totally agree.
It's quality that counts, not quantity. Certainly if you overspray this, you're gonna be a walking bioweapon. I sometimes spritz 3 times, but that's waaay too much and very brash
Totally correct, the sprayer mechanism dispenses only a small amount of spray (about half of what some do - say Giorgio of Bevely Hills for Men). Three sprays last all day.
