Spray that chest 6 times and go out my friend, its not a crime to smell good.
My wife and I had a nice weekend break away in Scotland and I managed to buy 5 new fragrances. Nothing niche sadly. On our way home last night, she finally gave in and allowed me to buy Kouros. She had read the reviews here and had smelt it on a tester stripe. It was a big no no for her.
I love that she has given in and let me get it, just to shut me up about it
I put on 1 spray to the chest this morning after my shower and lotion and it is beyond powerful. I sat in my office and allowed it to dry down a bit before going near her. Her reaction has changed. She actually finds it rather sexual and raw. This is finally a hit with her and she seems to really like it on me.
She was until today a lover of Versace pour home and Dior Sport on me. The tables have turned and I really enjoy this scent. Very soapy and spicy. Although, I could not imagine how powerful this is beyond 1 spray. Wow is all i can say to the strength.
I am working from home today, really nervous to see how it works out wearing this one spray in public.
I do not get any of the negative comment smells from this scent. Although on a test strip, I was partially able to pick up a few notes that people were finding less appealing.

Also, your night will be amazing with the last smells of Kouros and the new smells of you and your wife mixed together.
It's a musky fougere, and a darn good one at that. It's truly a classy scent. People get hung up on the civet far too much.
1 spray of Kouros = Decent
2 sprays = Someone will say OHHH SHT!!!
3 sprays = Quick way to break up a relationship
4 sprays = Will cause eyes to water
5 sprays = Skunks run from you!
6 sprays = you will get you slapped repeatedly by random people
7 sprays = You > Bear Pepper Spray
8 sprays = Will trigger the fire alarms
9 sprays = You're considered a National threat, RUN!
10 sprays = You will be added to the periodic table next to Uranium

No apology necessary, always interested in hearing opinions on Kouros
many a woman will feign a faint to get you to stop and help ... don't do it !!! ... once in her clutches, you will not be released ... enjoy your fragrance !!! ... but be a little more daring, and add a spray on the back of your neck, near your hairline, to aid sillage ...
i went to a large department store here to test this out, they said Sorry We Only Have L'homme and La Nwee Deu Lome by Yves Saint Laurent.
Nice going. KOUROS IS KING !
I love it from start to finish, which means 12+ hours with 3-4 sprays on my body ...... Yeahhhhh

Thanks for the replies.
I put one spray on at about 9am or so and here I am just over 6 hours later enjoying a wonderful musky and some what yet green floral dry down. This is amazing. Right now, the dry down reminds me a bit of Paco Rabbane pour homme. Which I adore.
I felt such a rush of testosterone as I walked up to the sales counter to purchase Kouros. I bought the 100ml bottle. Something tells me this will last a long time. I just love it. Really really impressed.
I do not smell any urine or nasty scents at all from this. I loved the sample I got months back. Very glad I now own this and so is my wife. I have read tons of posts about this subject. I would tell people who are wishing to dip their feet into Kouros to just do it. It is a very refined and masculine fragrance. I love it.
Kouros is great but being easy on the trigger is a good advice. More than one spray and you will rapidly end up being "that guy" in the office.
Love it or hate it.
Nothing can be compared to Kouros.. That is just a big plus point for me.
Kouros is unique, special and smells good to me. I find it really fresh.
Kouros smells like I would come out of my bathroom. This freshness can never be beaten.
Agree or not: Kouros was, is and will be the king.
Again: Tons of niche products can be compared to designer fragrances or cheap fragrances, but I have never ever smelt other scents, which smell like Kouros.
I love it.
I see no similarities.

I wanted to like kouros. But each time I go to shopping and spray it on paper, I always have this disgusting urinal/horse smell that makes me sick, so I don't wanna spray this on my skin. If it was a real KING, this would not happen I think. Or maybe since I'm in mid 20's, and kouros is for "older/daddy/uncle" type of men, like 40-50 years old and up. Cause seriously, I don't imagine any of a mid 20 guy wearing this stuff...
Kouros has been on the market for over 30 years.
I cannot define what a KING should be, because it is my highly subjective opinion.
I get lots of compliments from women and men when wearing this on my skin.
Test it on your skin and not on paper.
As you mentioned: Who ever hates Kouros, has Aqua Di Gio.
You say that Aventus, GIT and Aqua Di Gio are beloved by most people? Come on.
I like Aventus and GIT, but these fragrances are also beloved and hated so much like Kouros.
If you put aqua di gio on a paper and you ask many random people (young) about their opinions, most will be like "oh, its fresh, smell good, kind of sexy/beach vibe, I like it". But if you try with kouros, people are not familiar to these strong 80's frag so they will be like "my god! what the hell is this! Its disgusting". Go to any bar, and most of the guy will be wearing LeMale, 1 million, aqua di gio, dior homme, and all those things. So, the girls are accustomed to these scent and start to like it. Then if a man comes in with Kouros, they will be shocked.
I don't know how to really explain what I'm thinking about kouros, but I hope you understand what I mean.
Oh, BTW, you said it was on the market for over 30 years. Yea, thats true. But during these years, most of the people that bought it was older guy, above 40. Kouros is the #1 for my 55 years old uncle. And my dad also really like it. I really think Kouros is not for young guys.
If you like Kouros, try MFK's Absolue Pour le Soir... they share a lot of the same notes.
I just turned 29 and I love Kouros and Paco Rabbane pour home. I like very masculine scents. I shudder at the thought of owning 1 million , aqua di gio etc. When I was 15 - 24, sure I wore things like that. Now I am near 30 and a father, I am drawn to real masculine scents. I do however enjoy fragrances like Le Male, which I do own along with Le Male Terrible. Just depends on the man, not the age. Age is just a number.
Yes, age is just a number. When I say that Kouros is for "older 40-50 and up" I'm talking more about the "person/look" than the "age".

Your argument sounds like that the consumption of younger people is more important.
Do you have a source where most people don´t hate Aventus´ scent?
Sorry again, but your argument is just hilarious and also ridiculous (Sorry to say that):
Why do you wear cologne or fragrances? To please yourself or to please other people?
If you just want to have an attention from young people, then go with Aqua Di Gio or Creed.
Even if you wear Aqua Di Gio or Creed to please yourself, then it´s fine.
But don´t argue that OTHER people will like it more or less.
That´s a little bit embarassing.
If lots of young people hate or don´t like Kouros around you, then you will be right.
I know tons of people around me, who really like and love Kouros.
I am 24 and lots of people I know are also between 20 and 27.
P.S. Anyway, a king can be also beloved or hated.
Yes, many young people around me really hate kouros. And its funny to see how, when I go to a friend's house with some kouros on a paper, my friend is like "erkk this shit really stink man, whats that called ? The Urinal cologne ?" and then his father comes and he is like "wow, whats that? This smell really good". Thats what I say. Young people don't like it and old people like it.
