    I've gotta give it to Opium (PH) on this one...But I haven't experienced much of the women's collection. All of their older scents (before 2004 or so) were very complex by my nose.

    I enjoy Opium PH very much, but I find the original YSL PH to be very complex; PH continually reveals different colors of lemon, green, and woodiness. (But I was expecting to see Live Jazz mentioned here in answer to the OP question.)

    Opium (women's), by far.

    YSL Pour Homme Haute Concentration. this one is even harder than Kouros to understand not to mention wear. I wore it countless times and still my feeling towards it were mixed. In the end I swapped it with another member because I knew he would be able to appreciate it more than me.

    I don't find any of the YSL fragrances particularly linear. In some cases, too sweet, and therefore not to my liking (i.e. La Nuit de L'Homme) But not linear.

    Some of my favorite scents come from this house. None of them are overly complex, nor simplistic. I would say Kouros is probably the most "complex" of the scents. It is a masterpiece that I can't stand smelling. Kouros is one of the very few fragrances that I get a true gag reflex from smelling at first sniff. It is also one of the most well-crafted scents I've ever smelled.

    Some YSL masculines are self assured, others are non-apologetic, but complex? That said, ...

    Kouros.

    Its evolution is the most noticeable of the YSLs, IMO. Many comments also indicate that the drydown is very good, compared with the howling-Banshee, men's-room opening. THAT is some progression. But then, Kouros is my favourite.

    Indeed. Kouros is an incredible journey from beginning to end.

    Another vote for Kouros, the opening still confuses me and the drydown is just wonderfull. It is however an aquired taste. I hated this the first time i smelled it, but somehow i kept coming back to it. Now it is one of my favorites

    Kouros scares me. I think I'll get a sample first.

    I tested it at perfumania and got that pink urinal cake note, lol. It was on a test strip. I should try it a few days on my skin.

    Kouros. i loved it since first sniff, 25 years ago, and it is still my all time favorite.

    Rive Gauche- for its subtle, timeless simplicity
    Oopium Eau d'Orient- some of the most lush, non-generic and daring Orientals around
    M7- not my favorite, yet I admire it for its extremely modern and non-generic harmonies

    For the love of God, don't make me come to each of your homes with a bottle of YSL's Opium homme eau de parfum to show you what is truly one of this house's best offerings especially with regards to complexity. I dare say that the difficulty in finding the Opium edp at fragrance stores in North America has kept this from being one of YSL's premier men's fragrances.

    This is what you wear when you grow up.

    The way it evolves on skin. The strong diffusion all around you when you wear it. The very long lasting and tenacious dry down.

    Sample the EdT and/or the parfum (the EdP is a bit too much for me).

    I would have to say Kouros, the development is just amazing. It transforms from a animalistic-dirty- gritty scent (yes it kinda smells like urinal cakes and sweaty sex too but not for the whole length of the scent) to a clean, soapy and incredibly pleasing aroma. I really can not think of a fragrance that changes so drastically. It is really a pretty amazing scent IMO.
