    Default Kouros Tattoo Edition (2007)

    Kouros Tattoo Edition (2007)

    Does anyone know which year this was discontinued? Was it only around for a year or two?

    Don't know the exact year it disappeared, but it wasn't out very long from what I can recall.

    I think I had among many Kourosses (? ;-) it and remember it as an orangey, lighter, less furry Eau de Sport thing. If I'm right, they did 2 or 3 of these tattoo versions ...

    I own one and like it a lot. I think Roky hit the nail on the head. I like it enough to have wondered why nobody seemed to jump on board with it. Maybe it was the corny package and design on the bottle? IDK but what's inside is what I like.

    Thanks, Hednic. This is also how my memory of it goes..

    Thanks. I think there was only one Tattoo, but I could be wrong. I think there were maybe 2 'versions' of it (EDT and Tonique maybe??). I'm not sure if there was any difference between them though. From one old thread I read, it appears the general consensus at the time was 'little or no difference'.

    Do you happen to remember which year you bought your bottle? I've got a new / sealed 100ml on its way. I'm pretty excited about trying it.

    I am not really sure exactly when I purchased my bottle but I would guess 2012-13. Bought it on Ebay. I get most of my stuff from Ebay. Hard to beat the value.

    It has been so long since I have worn it I honestly can't give you an answer but I don't remember being disappointed in the longevity. I remember being surprised this wasn't very popular but no negative thoughts come to mind. I will did it out and wear it tomorrow give my current thoughts

    That would be awesome- thanks! I'm getting about 3 hrs of decent projection, then it sits closer to the skin for another 3 or 4. Just about enough to get through a workday. I'm not sure if this is it, or if my bottle will 'open up' a little the more I use it. I've worn it 3 times so far and each time it seemed to perform a little better. It was a sealed box in mint condition and came with the 2 tattoos etc. Fantastic fragrance by the way!

    Yep I get about the same. It is pretty dry air here at work as I work in a factory. Probably about 5 hours then a skin scent for me at best today. For some reason I threw my box away but the tattoos are still taped to the back of the bottle lol

    It is a beautiful scent BTW I agree. I kept smelling my arm thinking...I really like this! No doubt!

    That's good to know. Thank you so much for digging it out and giving it a wear! BNers are so awesome!
