Mark G: The old was a different smell the second is close but when I use the old people always told me how great I smell. It says a lot when the dry cleaners say they love doing my shirts.since the early 80's I've used nothing but kouros it would great to see it back. Nov 11, 2013

Andrew T: I understand why a lot of perfume houses dialed down there formulas as tastes do change over time. I agree with you that the original formula was better, I would prefer a bottle of the old formulation as it had a much more "character". This new formulation is dialed down a lot, but is still good. I have always have a bottle around, but I am always on the lookout for one of the old formulations on ebay or whenever I go shopping.

All in all though, it's still a good purchase.

Urbano L: Dear customer
I had a similar issue when I purchased a bottle at a store at a mall and the product was a counter fit did not smell at all like it is suppose to, so I complaint to the mall's management office and got my money back so then proceeded to order directly on line from the Ives saint laurent oficial web site and was very happy I did! Product was wonderful as always. Hope this helps.

Jose A asked: hi i've heard about the so called reformulated Kouros. Is what they're selling here the reformulated ones?
These are supposedly the ones without the silver on the shoulder and bottom. And if these are the new version, how's the scent itself?

A shopper asked: Is the item sold in fact the 2YF02-2 formulation?
This "2YF02-2" would be listed at the end of the ingredients on the back of the box, following ISOEUGENOL.
It would also be distributed under the name "Yves Saint Laurent Parfums", & not "YSL Beaute"

Most importantly does the bottle itself look identical to the photo? Or is this the new L'Oreal formulation that is missing the chrome shoulders and base plate?

Thank you for your help!

Andrew T: The image is misleading, this isn't the original formulation.

I bought a bottle fairly recently and in my mind it's still the kouros I remember, although it's not as full bodied as it used to be and I would love to get an old bottle in, but if you love Kouros, its still a great scent.

Darren T: I've been wearing this cologne since I first purchased it in Turkey while in the military. There has never been a fragrance more distinct and pleasing to women.

Andrew T: It's still listed as an ingredient, it may be toned down due to the fact that it's commonly seen as a alergen. Most perfumes recomend toning it down to around 1% so it complies with IFRA regulations. If they use the synthetic version where the offending molecule is removed. Synthetic can go to 5% generally. Considering the ingredients say "extact" I would make the assumption it's not the synthetic and probably around the 1% mark.

However, I am no chemist and don't work for YSL, so this is a guess at best. Hope it answers your question though.

Martyns K: You could say that it smells more of A classic and funky work of art, actually long lasting work of ART…I am not good at describing things but can only say that it is a totally original smell depending on the person.…as to me it means CLASS, CONTROL and something that announces your presence. I have been sold since the 80’s…LOL…
One more thing, your body chemistry plays a huge factor in how a scent will smell on you. Just know that one scent does not always smell the same on everyone...

Good Luck...

Timeless although for a lot of people a forgotten classic. Kouros has been one of my main scents since it came out in the 80's. It has a powerful and distinctive scent. Ranging from animal musk to sweet incense. Don't miss out on this classic.
