    Superb scent but not the "ultimate best male scent ever."

    For me it isn't. Kouros is a classic for sure, but I like very many fragrances far more.

    Not even usable as a bathroom deodorizer for me . . . I'd literally rather smell piss and shit. Polarizing is an understatement . . .

    Agreed. It's not even the bestest trolling scent. Aventus is rapidly becoming betterer.

    Every year I wear Kouros when my wife is out of town, and for about the first day, I think it's just the most amazing stuff. But it only takes a few days of actual Kouros to get that Kouros-mania out of my system.

    Kouros is good, and I think it's a 'gateway drug' to a lot of others, but the definitive men's cologne...definitely not.

    Perhaps somewhere in this region.
    I don't have a signature fragrance. My signature changes a little bit every day, why shouldn't my fragrance?

    Do you consider Kouros as the best and revolutionary male scent ever made compared to any niche or designer brands?
    YES!

    Nothing has yet beaten Kouros for me when you look at the overall package:

    Uniqueness of scent
    Brutality of smell
    Longevity & Projection combined
    Price
    Versatility - can be worn all year round, in summer it smells even better

    In short this fragrance is a mile mark in the history of male fragrances.

    I understand the guys who think this smells of urinal cake, hospital and dentist, they most likely will never whole hearted get to appreciate Kouros.
    For us fans - Kouros is what all niche frags only dream of being day in, day out - but will never be - NEVA' NEVER EVER !!

    Nicely put sir.

    Absolutely not. I did wear it back in the day like everyone else though. Quite embarrassing when you look back!

    I agree with hedonist above, but I will add that I smelled it for the first time about six weeks ago and my comment was: it took some big, sweaty balls to put that in a bottle. It is really something.

    Kouros first time smell 6 weeks ago !

    Thought you were in your 30-40's ?

    I smelled Kouros the first time 25 years ago and I'm in my late 30's and never looked back since smelling Kouros the first time

    Remember my teacher asking me if I have been to the dentist - Kouros smells of dentist and soap to my nose, not so much urinal cake like many suggests......

    I am so in the minority. I love Korous. Though I do love musky deep fragrances. My wife hated Korous at first. She was really against it. Even tried to stop me from buying it. Here we are nearly 2 months later and she actually enjoys it. I find the only way for me to wear it, is to spray on my lower chest area. 2 - 3 sprays and I am good for the day. I wait 15 mins to put my undershot on then put my shirt on and that really helps to stop the sheer power of Korous projecting far to much. I tried back of neck and upper chest once and near killed myself.

    Lower chest / stomach area is my perfect spot for wearing this. It is a great scent but not the " best " ever. I find I reach for Fahrenheit and Eau Sauvage more often. Just depends on my mood. I am still waiting to have the balls to wear Korous to work.
    Top 10 at the moment:

    1.Kouros
    2.Terre D'Hermes
    3.Fahrenheit
    4.Creed Royal Oud
    5.Eau Sauvage
    6.Dior Homme Sport
    7.Creed Bois du Portugal
    8.Givency PI
    9.Dior Homme
    10.Ralph Lauren Polo Blue

    For me, Kouros is like masturbation; something one enjoys alone, and in private.

    I simply cannot tolerate your attitude! Nobody is forcing you to like or appreciate something but the common sense should set some boundaries about what you should express or not!
    I've really enjoyed and appreciated all the knowledge shared here by so many dedicated persons but due to such "refined manners" I'm gonna leave off these forums!
