I wear this often, including hot summer days... never get tired of it. On my third bottle. Numero uno, along with Kouros.

I let my curiosity get me once while browsing in Freddie's and opened one of these. Yea, my father had a bottle of the stuff (never wore it), and I recall I didn't even care for it then. But the...

Damian Bash: Lucifer no.!
point being no one has regular stock anymore...no one
don't get attached
Thanks for the helpful suggestions fellows...BUT...none of these outlets have K/cs. None. Just to be sure I checked Macy's, Nordies, Sephoria etc...only YSL carried in this town is...
So many creative and impressive bottles out there. I'm going the other way though. You say BEST, and dept store at that. I say AdG. Simple, elegent, modern and minimal.
Cannot find it. My bottle is in the red zone. I'm deprived due to conservation. It seems that the Kouros derivatives are fading. As long as the king is still available (replenished mine recently)...
...and i just got another bottle of the standard stuff. cannot image an improvement anyways.

Try Salvador Dali. It's tarry black with a big green punch and pops like a firecracker.
It was Magie Noir by Lancome. I just loved that stuff. I didn't realize it was a femme fragrance when I purchased it at TJM...curiosity. As soon as I opened it I realized my mistake. I'd spray my...
It was Kouros during the day and AdG in the evening.
While I agree Kouros can be very nice in summer...applied lightly...I concur with those above mentioning AdG. It is reliably comfortable in the most extreme heat and humidity. I go through a bottle a...
AdG...about time for another bottle
I don''t get leather either, not out front. Cuiron is the only one I know well that really smells like leather. Haven't tried the Creed though. I still like Bel Ami...not a favorite, but kept it as I...
While I cannot imagine acquiring a new fragrance after five years of anticipation and checking in here before actually using it, apparently you have done so. Asuming that is really the case...
I had a jug of Aqua Lavanda by Puig that I got in Spain in the early sixties. It was wraped in woven straw. I've heard this was Sinatra's signature stuff. All I remember is I cherished it while over...
Point well taken. Some fragrances do bring a Fear Factor to mind. Let me clarify:
All this "sea sickness' about me was observed while in the navy. The "jarheads" we carried seemed to be most...
None...no matter how bad. Haven't been seasick either even after weathering some demonic ocean storms. Tends to make me suspect the psychosomatic but I'm trying to keep an open mind. I've seen ship's...
PH and L'EP are not sweet. They are both aquatic (though different) and suitable for hot weather.
Hopefully it has. This is one of the few fragrances that soured on me. It went seriously bad. Not faded. It turned rank and musty. Don't buy the old bottle. If you get the new one at least you're...
The wearing longevity was more than adequate for a subtle fragrance, but I had the second bottle go badly off on me even though it was stored in the icebox. It developed into a rank musty product...
Wore it today for the first time this year and it was "fine and dandy". Then again, some people regard me as a "dandy" just because I always have fragrance.
Kouros. It reeks bohemia.

Reminded me of "perfume", hence the women's scent impression when I encountered it some ten years ago...but loved it, and ended up hating many of the "men's cologne" products I'd been using. Not...
Disregard the excremental opinions as this is probably limited to some, not all, Basenote denizens. No one out there in the real world will get that from Kouros. Definitely go with the original, the...

Might be a tester. Unless you are retentive concerning packaging...keep it..
I have both Avignon and MdM and they do not resemble one another. I would say that if you want Avignon then that is what you must get. Nothing else will do.

When I got to a hundred I choked on them. Now down to fifty, I don't really miss any of the goners and most I was relieved to get rid of. That was five years ago. I don't have a cooler (or a walk-in...

Le Parfum MEDITERRANEO Antica Farmacista
Don't get me started. Too many. I'll concur with already mentioned Pour Monsour, Eau Sauvage, GIT, RV, definitely Guerlain Vetiver, etc, etc, etc. Dior Homme, etc, HR, on and one all night. One note...
Sounds derogatory even though a sequel can surpass the original. Misleading.
Sampled 2man at Sephora too many years ago; already had CdG2, anticapating regrets, but the man was woody and less intense (interesting). No regrets.
Mugler lacks the deep rich sandal of OV. While OV retains the vetiver hour after hour, Mugler's seems to finish into a lackluster sweetish drydown rather soon. OV is worth the difference. They do...
Depends upon WHO you might be bedding down with. On a lucky night Kouros hits the mark! For others I might just settle for The Dreamer.
Still have over half a bottle of the old RdV which I cherish. Cannot afford any backups so I've learned to take changes in stride. I will, however, keep the original in cold storage and use it with...
BK has NO Kouros!
I got half a bottle left. Still smells OK (just sprayed it) but I know from experience that musty note is probably there. I'll try it again when I'm hanging around at home. No biggie though. I had my...
One of the all time great bottle designs. OK fragrance. I still have some but it has gone off and developed a nasty mustiness than ruins it. Too bad. Didn't just fade but turned sour on me.
Once upon a time while ruthlessly shedding away at a bloated collection I had to make many hard choices:
One such was between M7 and CdG 2. As much as I liked M7, only needed one agarwood. I kept...
Do what you will. I remember a girl friend telling me about a young lady working in the office with her who had been a model...until...she develped a chronic infection in her armpits.
She had to...

Never, not though due to irritation. I've learned that even getting some fragrances near enough to this area to mix with the pit perspiration ranks out the fragrance. Hence I avoid even the side...
Sparked my interest so I counted them. Fifty. All acquired new, no decants, not counting samples. About half niche. Some time back I went over 100 and found that unmanageable since I have them to...

Three bottles over the years and well, vanilla, leather and amber seem to describe it well enough...but, I can hear incense too. Not an archtypical incense note but there are so many innovative...
