    I point the finger, as usual, at the IFRA. Much of Kouros's musky/sweaty/unwashed base came from costus oil, now totally banned.

    Those crazy 80's; only then could something like this be called "sport". Maybe what you smell like after you've actually finished playing a sport!

    question: has anyone tried the Kouros Deodorant spray? How does it project and how does it smell compared to the EDT?

    Kouros Fraicheur & Kouros Eau de Sport. Both of which are unfortunately discontinued.

    The KOUROS "Cologne Sport" eau de cologne is not discontinued - so you can still try that.


    And YSL often / usually release a summer fragrance, which the OP indicates seems to be the Energising Tonique in a different guise.

    Kouros Cologne Sport and Kouros Eau de Sport are two completely different animals...Eau de Sport is discontinued and very hard to find, though it is for sale on Basenotes.

    The deo spray is actually very good. It is only a little less stronger than the EdT upon initial application, it does not stick around as long either. It is perfect as a 're-spray' to the original or for an event that does not last all day. It is a faster route to the lovely dry down.

    Great review, don't forget about Body Kouros, which is amongst my faves (and I'm wearing today)!

    Body Kouros, as I think most would agree, is Kouros in name only. All of the other flankers have a "Kouros-y" undertone and dry down, but Body Kouros is simply awful and smells NOTHING like Kouros or any of the flankers. It's the only cologne to this day that I have returned to the store.

    Body Kouros is not a flanker, which is why it is not in this line-up.

    Gotcha. I've acquired samples of most of the Kouros line myself, though any review I do would pale in comparison.

    Funny how tastes differ, it is one of my go-to fragrances, and girlfriends I've had LOVED it.

    Kouros Plein Air i believe is from 1991, i have this too and at the bottom of the bottle you can see "Yves Saint Laurent Parfums Corp"

    Its not a bad scent, but not the best out of the Kouros flankers that i have tried. I probably rate the Plein Air last along with Body Kouros. But still a nice addition to have in any Kouros collection. Espcially considering the HUGE 200ML bottle it comes in.

    I received my 90s Kouros Tester and its wonderful! Its more musky and incensed. The civet is very prominent but blends well with the florals and artemisia.

    Kouros really ages well , I wore my 90s Kouros and I got compliments from 3 girls at work. They said it smells citrusy and smokey/musky.

    My Kouros dated 1983 is still hanging up to snuff, the opaque bottle & it's sealed designed top, probably helps in preserving the juice.

    I love those blue bottles! I gotta go out and try Kouros again. I had a bottle about 5 yrs ago, and I went through it in no time.
