What it is

A timeless scent of triumphant masculinity, inspired by iconic Greek sculpture of ideal young manhood. First notes of chypre, coriander and cove exhibit an impetuous spirit yet reserved nature. Manly grace and maturity arrive with refined oakmoss and ambergris… for a warm, inviting presence and classic character.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lost A Lot It was MY SCENT. And it disappeared. Bought it now that it's back-- and nothing. It is NOT MY SCENT. Disappointed and wish I could get the original back. I've switched to a Dior scent that is different but get compliments. But not like the original used to.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weak compared to the original - disappointing. My grandfather wore Kouros. When he passed away, I bought a bottle to remember him. The scent of the original was amazing. The new bottle I received is weak in comparison. I did some research only to learn that the formula had changed. It is very disappointing. I had to go on eBay to buy a vintage bottle to experience those memories again. Please, re-release this in the original formula. It was the most unique and wonderful men’s fragrance. I would buy it at twice the current price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The reason for the weaker scent I bought my first bottle of Kouros when it first came out and fell in love with the powerful and seductive scent. It brought constant compliments from women and many guys asked what I was wearing. It became my scent. Kouros was me. The "new" reformulation is weak and sadly only a shadow of what it once was. The reason is obvious to me and I have to believe that those who make the decisions at YSL are fully aware. The perfume oil content was obviously very high for a listed eau de toilet cologne. Perfume oil content for eau de toilet is 4% to 9% and for eau de perfume it is 8% to (I believe) 14%. I am confident that the new iteration of Kouros has a perfume oil content that is close to or right at the low percentage mark, while originally it was probably at or above 9%. The higher the perfume oil level of content of the product, the more powerful and long lasting it will be. I am asking YSL to hear the voices of the people and change the formula to the higher perfume oil level that it once had. Many people heard the "name" Yves Saint Laurent from me, and very probably from all those who had purchased Kouros in the past. We, no doubt, collectively created a positive image to the Name Yves Saint Laurent and were ambassadors for that product name. If you can find someone who has some of the original Kouros, it would be very easy for your chemists to find the oil content and correct the "error". PLEASE!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I loved Kouros - I too wore it in the 80's and still have a bottle of the old formula. I heard rumors that Kouros was coming back. I got on this site, read the reviews and I'm leaving disappointed. Too bad that the quality went down. I'm avoiding this "timeless treasure" due to the bad reviews.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AGREE-NOT THE SAME I started wearing Kouros in 1988 and would constantly be getting compliments on it. While I continue to wear it, I'm paying more as time goes by for a weaker version of the original product. I agree that it changed when there started to be less silver on the bottle and I, too, thought I was getting a knock off so I started buying direct from YSL but it is the same weaker formula. I see that you appreciate our comments and will pass them on to others in the company but are you really?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Current formula is very weak After the silver shoulders were removed, the juice in Kouros from 2012-2013 is so weak, pale shadow of the vintage 10-15 years ago. I can't even imagine the difference from the absolute best 1981-1986 Yves Saint's original KOUROS masterpiece. Please L'Oreal make the KOUROS we love, again! Increase the price as much as you like, but please: bring bach at least a decent clone of the original formula!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I can not recall the original My father introduce me in the 80's as this was his one favorite fragrance collection, but after so many development, I can't barely recall the memories that used to be shared by my father with it. Totally changed.

Questions & Answers

1.Does this perfume(Kouros) contain phthalates? 2.I heard synthetic civet(musk) has a bad effect on hormones(Synthetic musk can cause cancer and infertility). And I also heard Kouros has a strong musk fragrance. Is it okay to use it every day?

Asked by: Jung
That is not true, and you can use it every day.

Ali mahmood.. Ive been using this for the last 15 years.. I want it back??
Asked by: AliM
The current Kouros has been reformulated and it's definitely not the same as Vintage Kouros from the 80s and early 90s and wished YSL could bring that back with original ingredients. They should of left it alone to begin with and if it's not broke don't fix it.
