    Default Body Kouros.. arrived

    IMG_20191010_142422.jpg
    Today I recieved Body Kouros I ordered from Fragrance X they never disappointed me ..for very cheap..I first smelled Body Kouros just the other day at the mall , they was charging 99$ for a 100ml bottle..current version..I don't know what the vintage formula smells like, but this scent like always Yves Saint Laurent never fails..it's sweet and sexy..it does remind of Kouros but different, I think that stank in Kouros is in Body Kouros , I like this scent very very much, it's only been on my skin for 30min so it's just getting to the drydown, I'm hoping the longtivy is good , but with YSL I assume I'll be ok, all there stuff seems to last long good on my skin..this scent sort of reminds of LaNuitDe L Homme ysl idk what it is but both of them resembles eachother , maybe is the sweetness that's in it idk but I own both and like both alot ..but KOUROS is KING

    Ive never smelled it. So it smells like kouros AND la nuit? I cant marry the two in my head. I feel like the skank would overpower the mellow flavor. And longevity would then be somewhere between kouros forevor and la nuit 30 minutes.

    It just reminds me sort of some ppl may say something ,does la Nuit not last long on ya? The DNA of Kouros is definitely in this one not all the way but it has it..it's really really good , to your nose it may not smell like the two..Kouros the current version has a normal longtivy going 6 hours + same as LaNuit last long on me idk about you but it does to me .. u just gotta smell it to see for yourself if u like it

    Congratulations and enjoy, personally considering this one of the better Kouros flankers and affordable for a fairly good price while also fairly (or even entirely) unaffected by possible reformulations

    Congrats. I have the vintage... Like it quite a bit. I don't have any other eucalyptus-forward fragrance. Quite unique.

    I always mix this one up with silver in my head (the one with apple listed). This one is something id try if i saw it. Heck, might even have to sample and review.

    Body Kouros is very nice , I never smelled the Kouros silver so I did do a side by side test with LaNuit de homme , and no it don't smell alike but it just reminds of it for some reason , maybe it's the sweetness in them that does , and I'm not really into sweet colognes but Body K and LaNuit are very very good colognes with good longitvity on both

    I have this in vintage form and it smells nothing like Kouros to me. It couldíve been given another name completely. Also, the vintage version doesnít remind me of La Nuit. Itís a very unique combo though. The sum of things on my skin amount to incense and cotton candy (from the mix of clary sage and benzoin). Turns out to be a great fall fragrance for me. Happy I have it.

    Body Kouros smells nothing like Kouros to me. It’s on a different scale all together. It smelled very nice, but nothing special to me. Did not like it enough to get a bottle. Have never smelled the vintage version.

    Body Kouros smells nothing like Kouros to me either.
    A month ago I saw 100ml bottles of it being sold in a Douglas store in Lisbon for 92 Euros.

    No connection to me with Kouros other than the name.
    it struck me as just another candy bomb when I tested it years ago but I'd give it another try now that I could judge it without expectations.

    No it don't smell nothing like Kouros , but there something in both of them the connects not just the house and name but something in the smell the connects them both , maybe is the hint of stank thats in it I think , it's definitely not as strong as Kouros but it's pleasant scent that I would wear

    I'm interested in the current formula in Kouros I have the formula that was made I believe right after chrome shoulders , this the 2YF02-3 the one I have and the 2YF02-2 was the chrome shoulders...this is a 2007-8 bottle , but what's the 2019 version like, does it still have Oakmoss and treemoss?

    My least favorite Kouros flanker by a wide margin. Briefly: Metallic sweet fruit.

    I can't see any logic in your statements that those who like Kouros will like Body Kouros, especially when you admit that the two smell nothing alike.
    Kouros Silver is rubbish in my opinion. Nothing to differentiate it from scores of generic designer scents out there.

    As I recall, BK had a definite eucalyptus note, which was not a problem, but the performance was poor. Just checked at Fragrantica, and a substantial number of peeps rated it as being "long lasting." So maybe it was just me. But the scent was good.

    I recall lots of people validating that the newer versions are weaker. Similar smell, just not as strong as vintage. Personally I have only smelled the original.

    Benzoin heavy fragrance with incense and the aforementioned eucalyptus. Had an original release bottle years ago (I think it came out in 1999/2000) and it smelled really good, but haven't smelled any newer bottles in a long time. Givenchy Pi is another benzoin heavy fragrance that shares some similarities.

    Some logics aren't the same I guess , ur mind and mines aren't the same..from reading on BN Silver isn't really that good I'm not after that at all..I think I'll just stick with these two Kouros for now..I do want the vintage version on both , body Kouros isn't something like WOW. What unique smell, but it's nice and pretty differ compare to what's out there , I never tried the vintage I'm assuming it's really nice and longer lasting ..I sprayed Body Kouros lastnight after a shower around 9pm , and it's 12 hours later and right now I have only a skin scent ..I think it's alright the longtivy
