    Default Kouros

    Hi,I´m new here and my English is very poor.. I hope You can understand..
    I bought Kouros online from FragranceNet.com I´ve been buying from them for the last 2 years.. Today i received my package and when I opened my perfume´s box, I noticed something different in the bottle. (from the pictures and videos I´ve seen) My bottle doesn´t have the silver thing on the top & bottom. (only the cap has that silver thing) The bottle its suppose to look like this





    My bottle looks like this:


    So.. Is it fake? Why is the bottle different?

    Its the new bottle. I think the new design is to cut some costs and made more money.

    I smelled in the new bottle, without spra it, only put my nose to the sprayer. Its the same good old Kouros, but i dont know is it have the same strenght. Can you compare to us?

    Does it smell fake?

    I doubt it's fake. I don't think Kouros is a highly faked scent, and companies change bottle designs all the time.

    Kouros is a highly faked scent (it is very popular in Europe and parts of the world that are not the US) but fragrancenet is a very reliable website. I think it's just a new bottle / formula.

    Kouros........in any formulation.......is an animal that's ready to take your partner and ravage them.

    FragranceNet is reliable seller and it is hard to believe that your scent is fake.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    No fake guys, i smelled a tester at a store last sunday, and the bottle is pretty the same.

    I think its not glass, but a kinda plaster, or something like that. The smell is pretty the same, but i didnt sprayed, only sniffed the sprayer. Dont know about longevity, though

    Kouros must've been tweaked lots of times by now. It was launched in '81, which makes it 30 years old by now. The current version is slightly hollow, but in general it's true to its old self. The differences are quite subtle.

    My vintage bottles are pretty the same as the current ones, except for some rancid at the opening, wich i think its the time aging the juice, not the difference on the formulation.
    Great job from YSL to keep Kouros untouched for 30 years!!!
