    Default Kouros in Summer!

    Probably old news to many here but today I realized Kouros is actually a true summer scent (for me)! I came home from the beach, took a shower and decided to (boldly) go for 1 spray of Kouros to the chest right after and went out for dinner. The whole evening I got these nice whiffs of smell which complemented the summer evening in an excellent way! Just thougt I'd share for the people hesitating to wear this unique scent in summer. Don't.

    I feel it's an anytime scent.

    I'm wearing it in Cairo all the time, and this is easily the hottest place I've lived in ( as opposed to just visited ).

    Kouros smells best in hot weather, in my opinion.

    I'm glad Kouros is getting the recognition it deserves as a good summer option. Maybe all this good PR will make it seem less like the big, scary, white, boogey man scent!

    Yes, we oldtimers are in on that secret. It seems to go against the logic that the stronger a scent is, the better it is in cold weather and the more difficult it is to wear in heat. Kouros is the exact opposite - it truly blooms in heat (in a good way!). Another reason why I suspect some folks find Kouros so... unappealing. They really need to withhold judgement until they've tried it as it should be worn.

    OK, that's it! I'm ordering a sample of this ASAP! I'm tired of reading about it and not knowing what it smells like.

    I prefer in the warm weather. It turns veeery sweet, and reminds me fleur du male in the dry down.

    In the cold weather it turns very mossy and sharp on me

    Just make sure it's a spray sample/decant. Kouros works best when misted.

    I feel the same way. I'm a bit new to this species called Kouros. At first, I would just read about it in the encyclopedia. But lately, I've been sampling it. And I've come to appreciate it and would even say it wasn't as bombastic as I thought it would have been.

    And yes, much more of a sunny summer fragrance. Anytime I have sampled it in cloudy or cooler weather, Kouros upsets me.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Cacharel Nemo, Bijan for Men EDC, Lanvin for Men, Giorgio VIP, Il Lancetti and other old school frags ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    I like it at various times of the year but it's excellent in the summer. More lively. The same goes for a lot others when combined with a little heat and sweat. It creates a more natural, oozing from the pores feel and a completely different trajectory.

    I agree it's good in summer. There are strong frags like this that have civet or amber that you wouldn't think work well in summer but they do because they play so well on the skin and airs heat. Glad to see another K fan

    My thoughts exactly. Crazy longevity though. I can still smell the one spray/mist.
