Fragrance Family:

Musky

Scent Type:

Aromatic

Notes:

Light scents such as bergamot and artemisia make up the top notes of Yves Saint Laurent Kouros Cologne, while middle notes contain spices and florals such as cinnamon and carnation. Base notes of this cologne include musk, leather and amber. The result is a seductive earthy fragrance with slight hints of spices.

Suggested Use

For long-lasting fragrance that you can carry throughout the day and to minimize the need for reapplying, focus on your pulse points behind your ears, at the base of your neck and on your wrists as well as warmer areas of the body, such as behind the knees and inside the elbow. These are the best places to apply your fragrance since the scent intensifies by the warmth of your body.

FAQ

What does Yves Saint Laurent Kouros Cologne smell like?

This musky fragrance is deeply masculine with its hints of leather, tonka bean and oakmoss. However, the middle notes of cinnamon and geranium, along with top notes like aldehydes and coriander ensure it's not an overpowering aroma.

What kind of scent is Yves Saint Laurent Kouros Cologne?

This musky fragrance is an EDT, which means up to 15% pure perfume. While these fragrances create a stronger scent, they typically only last about 2-3 hours.

What are the notes in Yves Saint Laurent Kouros Cologne?

  • Top Notes: aldehydes, clary sage, bergamot, coriander, artemisia
  • Heart Notes: patchouli, vetiver, cinnamon, orris root, carnation, geranium, jasmine
  • Base Notes: civet, leather, oakmoss, tonka bean, honey, musk, amber, vanilla

What season is Yves Saint Laurent Kouros Cologne best for?

The earthy base notes and spices in this fragrance make Yves Saint Laurent Kouros Cologne an excellent choice for wearing during the fall and winter months.

Is Yves Saint Laurent Kouros Cologne suitable for all occasions?

The ingredients in this cologne are stronger than many others when you consider it is an EDT. Typically, this scent has a longevity of 3-4 hours and is the perfect choice for a special evening out. However, when sprayed lightly, it is also a good choice for wearing to the office.

Can it be worn by both men and women?

Although Yves Saint Laurent Kouros Cologne is marketed to men, anyone who enjoys earthy and spicy fragrances can wear it.

Where do you apply Yves Saint Laurent Kouros Cologne?

If you want a longer-lasting fragrance, apply a bit of petroleum jelly to the pulse points on your wrists, inner elbows, neck and chest before spritzing on the cologne. You can also create a lighter fragrance by spraying it onto your clothing or hair.

How long does it last?

This cologne is an EDT, which means it typically lasts 3-4 hours. Remember, though, that the temperature outside and your own body chemistry determines how the fragrance smells and its longevity. Consider reapplying throughout the day as needed.

Where is the best place to buy Yves Saint Laurent Kouros Cologne?

Yves Saint Laurent Kouros Cologne can be purchased at major department stores, but FragranceX is a solid option for buying perfumes and colognes online. FragranceX sells authentic, quality fragrances at discount prices, allowing you to save up to 80% off.

I actually am revamping my original review lol

Umm lol. I originally left a good review cause I didn't want to offend this website which is AMAZING BTW! I love fragranceX bought lots always great service. Now...lol why I'm laughing. This cologne is brutal. Lol I sprayed it once before I went to the grocery store and I'm NOT JOKING people
...
actually got out of the same line up I was in cause they didn't want to smell me anymore lol!!! One lady said her eyes were starting to hurt!! Hahaha! Do NOT wear this stuff before a date or she'll hug you and continue walking right out the door. Lol. This is the strongest cologne I've ever seen/smelled in my life. Even after washing your clothes the smell is stuck on it lol so you're gonna have to throw your stuff away. In all seriousness though anyone seen the movie "Anchorman" when the guy get that Panther cologne and sprays himself and the entire building cleared out? Well that's this stuff in a nicer bottle lol. The bottle is beautiful and this is something that I'm again not kidding if you wear it to the movies you will literally have people saying "what the hells that smell". I actually started laughing so hard when the lady in the grocery store line up started complaining her eyes were hurting haha omg I still can't believe it. Anyway buy BODY KOUROS instead cause that stuff smells amazing!!! But this Kouros will remain on my shelf for my children's children's children's children. This stuff might be able to replace gasoline for running our cars. Lol. Anyway hope u have no sense of smell. Oh on an added note I LOVE FRAGRANCEX!! This website really is awesome!!! So no arguments at all about them cause they really are great.

Been buying this since a while

I live kouros a lot! I keep buying from fragrancex can they never disappoint. But this time when I got it it was watered down badly. Smell only lasted for about 10 mins. Otherwise it lasts for more than 4 hours. I guess this they got a fake batch or something

Bottom Line

Yes, I would recommend to a friend.

Fragrance doesn't last

The product is inferior to the previous kouros I bought at brick and mortar duty free shops for the last 19 years for my dad who lives in a foreign country. The scent barely lasts an hour. And for the price I expected a quality product as it was not significantly discounted.

Bottom Line

No, I would not recommend to a friend.

Strong!!

Use an extremely small amount- one SMALL spray! This is a great fragrance but it is beginning to border on being a hair too sweet for my tastes. As I get older, my nose has become more sensitive. This is definitely a night-time party scent. I discovered this in the late eighties and loved it, then. I could be wrong but the smell seems to have slightly changed since then. It could just be me, though.

Good only for certain places

You should only use kourous if your going our clubbing drinking and smoking the reason I say this that it's really strong for other things like work dating or daily wear but if your going to sweat and party it's perfect cause at the end of the night you'll still smell like the cologne

THE ONLY SCENT FOR ME!!

This is the only scent for me that my husband wears. I love when he first applies it in the morning, as the fragrance waffles through our home and it brings a smile to me. It lasts and lasts and I cannot imagine a different fragrance on my husband (he's tried, but he/we always return to Kouros). I would be quite disappointed if he weren't wearing this scent, and so many people - men and women - comment on how wonderful he 'smells':):):).
