    Default Kouros sanofi arrived today

    Just got in the mail , when I first squirt it on I was like wow , the sprayer isn't that strong , but cologne is powder , I see why, this a beautiful cologne nothing like the current formula yes , it does smell the same , but this sanofi Kouros is a animal on it own , all u need is 3 good sprays on your neck and your set , and this coming from a heavy sprayer , current Kouros I need 6-7 spray for a solid performance, but not this one , both good , but I can use current formula for reapplying if needed or other way around ...all this fuss that's almost the same thing , no is not Kouros is king, I wonder what other colognes are out there like Kouros , strong , unapologetic and your face kind of..what u guys think am I wrong ? That's Kouros defiantly a beastIMG_20191108_165843.jpg

    Lapidus Pour Homme (1987) is pretty unforgiving too.

    I too got a vintage 50ml bottle of Kouros today, I think it's an early 80's one according to https://raidersofthelostscent.blogsp...f-gods-12.html looks like it's a rare "Parfums Corp." bottle signed Paris-NewYork,
    and "Made in USA" with a round sticker on the underside of the bottle.

    That made me suspicious but at the end of page 1 of that blog post there are some pics of the made in USA box which is what I have. It says on the back of the box "Bottle and cap imported from France" so perhaps it's just the box that's made in USA.

    I thought it was really hard to wear as it lasts a very long time, one of the most longest lasting fragrances that I've smelled.

    ive only known Kouros charles of the ritz era from my youth. Now in the same line but also different i think YSL Opium, also vintage version (parfum corps) or Balanciaga PH can be in that same corner, diff smell but i mean heavy hitters.

    Furyo, Zino, Salvador Dali Pour Homme... at least vintage. Do some searching of the site for key words like sillage monsters.

    Kouros can last 24hours plus ,I was in the E.R for the whole day , and ppl would ask what cologne I'm wearing after 24 hours , I mean we talking going on day two no lie and I was still getting projection , this must be one of the strongest or strongest cologne ever made. I'm already arranging for a back up vintage and current , current version may not be near as strong as vintage but it has its purpose , I still love it
