Kouros is a steroided Leather , Honey and Civet sledgehammer that will force you to decide IMMEDIATELY whether you like it or not. It doesn't give you a choice to stay on the fence. Like the horrific beauty of a bodybuilder gone buck wild in his crazed quest for mass, Kouros is the aftermath of his workout and aglow with the insinuation of good, clean sweat.
Virility is the message Kouros attempts to send out. I get the message. I happen to like the message. I also have no problem whatsoever in sending the message. Kouros is MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE.
I've heard the stories. "It smells like cat piss". "It smells like urinal cakes".
What you're smelling is YSL's interpretation of male virility. If it's not for you, that's fine. You obviously have your own idea of what virility should smell like. Kouros is sensually dirty and clean at the same time. Deodorized arousal is the best way I can describe Kouros.
I have worn Kouros many times and there are some, of both genders, who are repelled by the smell and some who are compelled. I hold no angst for those who don't like it. Fragrance is simply that way. I do have disdain for absurd claims and the spouting of derogatory remarks which are the result of the power of suggestion.
Come to the Dark Side for a test ride. Kouros. Messenger of deodorized arousal for your enjoyment.....or your terror. An erect thumbs up from Aromi for the Beast in the bottle.
