    Default Experimenting on layering scents with vintage Kouros

    Hi.

    I'm planning on trying out some similar masculine scents to layer with vintage Kouros (1 light spray to the chest projects 8+ hours, and lasts all day, no kidding)

    What do you guys think will be the final olfactory result if I layer Kouros with either of these guys?

    Rive Gauche PH
    Azzaro PH
    Jovan Musk for Men
    Kiehl's Original Musk

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    IMHO, I think it would be scent overkill if coupled with Azzaro PH and the greatness of Rive Gauche would be lost if coupled with Kouros. The other two I have no opinion. All three of these are great scents, but each one on its own merits.

    Thanks. I have noticed that I have been experimenting and trying out Kouros a lot more than I originally thought I would.

    I've been using it and wearing in public, maybe twice a week now.

    The start is just a bit too loud for most, even with just 1 spray. I'm just thinking of something to soften the rough edges a little bit for a few hours.

    Our housekeeper says it smells of death and dead spirits. Hehe.


    It performs really well, man. Really good longevity and projection. And it's dry and sunny now, where I live, in the 80s F.
    So this will scream out in the mid day even with 1 spray.

    I agree with hednic, when perfumes are very good on their own, mixing them up can only worsen.
    Kouros is a sort of fougere, so perhaps it won't be too bad if layered with soapy RG - sounds almost like a fight between soap, sweat, and bathrooms. Who knows, it could be interesting.

    The Kiehl's is itself dirty, so I wonder whether it would be pushing it overboard.

    Let us know the results if you try.

    Thanks. I noticed just 1 spray to the chest gives off a "3 hardcore hours in the gym" kind of vibe. Caveman kind of stuff.

    "HULK SMASH!"

    Hah,

    The bloke who created Kouros knew what he was doing.

    It's fine as it is.

    Adding anything to it is like adding 'rims' to a Bentley.

    Pointless.

    Wouldn't do that if I were you!

    I mix reformulated Kouros with Muscs Kublai, but the vintage one is left unspoiled!
