i disagree. i think kouros is great for young men. especially attractive ones, handsome and charming (what's attractive depends on who you ask anyway.)
it's just that this sort of thing isn't very in vogue with the young crowd. it was a hit with people who are 25 or so years older. thus it gets associated with people of that age. but to me, it's best
suited for a young man in the prime of his life. not to say you have to stop wearing it when you hair line starts to recede.
some people stay in the prime of their life till they reach true old age. just don't wear it when you feel tired and and have little sexual desire.
it is a scent that you have to know how/when to wear it.
as for attraction, women will only being attracted to you wearing kouros if they feel attracted to you anyway. you could compare it (metaphorically speaking) to whispering naughty things in her ear. most often, you'd have to win her first, to do that.
all that said; if you love kouros and you feel like wearing it, by all means do so. unless you apply too much, wear it to a funeral, etc, many ladies will think it smells good, too.
