    Nicely done, although to this day I've never understood the different pee-associations (cat pee, public restroom etc. etc.).

    I've never quite understood the pee thing either...IMO Mario Justiani still described it best: "This smells like the kind of soap I would expect THING to hand to me in The Addams Family bathroom."

    It smells like smelly, sweaty armpits smothered in talcum powder. But cat pee is good enough. Good observation

    If Kouros smells like cat pee, then I suggest taking the cat whose pee it resembles to the vet.

    Kouros is a fantastic fragrance - which smells NOTHING like cat, or any other animal's, urine.

    I second that, even though mine is far from empty.

    BTW, I get the animalic notes, but cat pee? Nope, so far.

    Maybe Pappy's body odour mixed with Kouros is a bad combination..which makes it smell of pee.

    Hm, debatable, but relatives and friends of mine suggest that Kouros would actually smell of... beer (beer as in cheap, yeasty-smelling, somewhat pungent and/or rancid), which is, by no means, my opinion, I just felt I had to mention it, since at least it stands out from most olfactory associations attributed to this frag.

    Kouros isn't for everyone......and that is apparent from the polarization it seems to cause.

    I happen to like Kouros. While not in my top 10, I find it wardrobe worthy especially for cool to cold weather. On me, it is feral, but not urinary like it seems to be on others. It may be skin PH that causes this, but that's just a personal guess.

    There is a fragrance that comes off on my skin smelling like a used litterbox ( literally), yet the other reviewers of this same scent never mention anything remotely similar to what I get from it. Most of them like it, but for me, it's putrid. I chalk it up to skin chemistry for this particular frag. I'm referring to Magazine Street by S.I.P.

    Try very small sprays. If it still isn't you, then it will never be you. It will always sell on the board.

    I'm convinced there needs to be some magical musk in Kouros, that half the people can smell and the others can't. I still remember the first time I sampled it, I knew its infamy, but I still kept an open mind. I put my nose to the card, and recoiled in pure disgust, I practically yelled, it's an uncleaned littler box! Why the hell would anyone wear this! I still don't get it, still think it smells like cat piss, but I've grown to accept that it's not as weird as I initially thought it was.

    I got hit by some cat pee a few weeks ago on the shoulder. I unknowingly thought it was rain water and u can imagine what happened next. Kouros doesn't smell anything like that.

    @Pappy, is your cat pee=Kouros conclusion based on the actual wearing of Kouros or based on the writings of a few Kouros haters on BN ? One or two sprays to the arm/wrist during a trip to the mall doesn't count as a "few wearings".

    Although I can understand why someone wouldn't like Kouros, I still think most people who think it smells like piss are those who've never actually WORN Kouros like a cologne should be worn. It's one of those you can't just spray on your hand to sample. My love of Kouros has always been well known here.

    I have just recently taken a liking to Kouros- I bought a sample, then a decant, and then finally swapped for a bottle. It is unique to say the least and a very wearable scent. I would not wear it to work or for a formal evening but I think it is otherwise very versatile and quite fascinating I don't find it loud, obnoxious, or extreme in any manner. I do smell the distinct "pee" for the first couple minutes then it just melds into a warm, dry wood, slightly soapy incense fragrance.

    True, this is not a scent you would want to overspray and/or use in very hot weather. Other than that I love it and I am sure it will always have some.

    Bigsly , is this a tabletop top experiment ?
    Or one of those other ones utilising your body fluids , karma sutra possies & strenous sweating & foot smelling ?
