    Default Kouros Tattoo Edition

    Does anyone own this? What are your thoughts? I was looking for a summer scent as my bottle of Kouros Fraicheur is starting to get low. Seeing how that will be difficult to replace, I figured that I'd ask about the Tattoo Edition.

    Thanks in advance.

    I own the EDT Tonique / Energizing EDT http://www.basenotes.net/ID26131646.html and as a big fan of Kouros am probably a bit disappointed by it. I wore the Fraîcheur when it first came out - but my memory of it has dimmed somewhat.

    I love the Tattoo edition ( I think supposedly the EDT Tonique is the same juice). It's the most wearable version of Kouros for me- it smells very Kouros-y, while still not venturing too far off like the Cologne Sport. It's not as old-school as Fraicheur, but rather a more modern, updated spin-off.

    I'd say try before you buy on this one. It doesn't smell much like Kouros to me and it has a big dose of aquatic cucumber/melon note. It's nothing like Kouros Fraicheur and you may find it disappointing.

    It was once in my wardrobe. It's a top-notch fragrance that I thoroughly enjoyed. It reminds me of a brief moment when I received one of the most positive, unsolicited compliments ever from a fragrance.

    I've already read all the threads and reviews pertaining to the fragrance. When you say you were disappointed by it, do you mean you were disappointed by the fragrance itself, or how it compares to the original Kouros? Since I'm one of the few people on here who merely shrug when smelling Kouros, I don't think I'm going to be affected by those who say it is nothing like the original...

    Interesting question - I think if I had never smelt Kouros I'd probably think the Energizing EDT was very good indeed, if I was after a 'light, clean' version of the original. But for me the comparison is inevitable because I have smelt and worn Kouros for years.

    Also - and subtlety isn't beyond me - but I don't think that I would ever choose a half-strength anything. Not a half-strength coffee or tea; not half-strength fuel in my car; not half-strength beer; and not half-strength fragrance. And that's how I feel about the Energizing EDT, it's half-strength Kouros.

    In that case, I want to track down a sample Kouros is a scrubber for me, but I like its flankers : Kouros Cologne Sport, Kouros Fraicheur.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Nicole Miller (vintage), Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Concentré D'Orange Verte...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.
