    Default Kouros day. June 1st ?

    Just bumping this for this year.


    Kouros Day June 1st

    senatus_xgmTLk.jpg



    After watching the movie about the life of Yves Saint Laurent, it got me thinking about Kouros and how I used to own a bottle back in the 80's.
    Since that though I've tracked down a bottle of Kouros Fraicheur and think its wonderful.

    So as a tribute to Yves Saint Laurent and Kouros, how about we all wear Kouros on the 1st June which was the day he died.


    Anyone interested ?

    Don't forget to add Kouros as your 'Scent of the day ' on June 1st

    I'll make a mental note of it.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I posted this now while it was in my mind, but I'll bump this thread as the date gets nearer.

    Why not August 1 instead? The day he was born.

    It was meant as a nod to him and kouros at the same time. I thought a tribute on the date of his death would be appropriate.

    Nah, here it's Elvis day or John Lennon death day. Not keen on those either. Much happier to think "Mozart was born on this day, 259 years ago..." etc.

    I've spent the last year or so tracking down vintage bottles of perfumes that i don't have in my collection, probably because i dont like them....And i just bought a bottle of 90's Kouros.

    I will gladly wear it June 1st

    June 1st? I'd think a date like March 1st would make more sense. Maybe even February 1st. I enjoy Kouros, but I'd struggle to wear it in June.

    I can't do it. I smelled the original (I think) smelled way too dated for me. Haven't smelled the others though.

    Go easy on the spray (singular). Should be fine in the warm weather, at least that's been my experience. Now if it happens to be 95 deg on designated day, that could be a different story.

    I gotta buy a bottle. I ran out long ago, but now regret not being more conservative with it. I wore it to bed, all the time!

    June 1st: World wide Kouros "stink out" Day ....I love it.

    Kouros people, unite!

    Sure! I shall use my Paris bottle, which is strangely more wearable to me than the ParfumsCorp.

    I'm in. I just got my first bottle of Kouros today. (Can I hear a mazel tov?) After wearing it for a couple of hours, it hit me: this smells a lot like the sample of MAAI that I have. Then I googled that and saw that, yes, others have noticed the similarity, too. I look forward to getting to know this legendary scent further!
