Summary
very much an old school scent (I once saw it descibed as "...like a hairy-knuckled punch to the face..." but in fact it isn't that unsubtle. Nor is the description of it being like a mens locker room (I've never understood that one at all). But it is powerful and single minded (you really need to be gentle in it's application). Not one I would recommend but it can work for some men.

When I saw this listing it transported me straight back to the 90’s! My husband used to be a huge fan of this after shave (along with millions of others) especially when choices for men’s fragrances were a lot more limited than they are today. Kouros still stands alone with its scent and is easily recognised by many. It is a very earthy fragrance with top notes of fruits which are not at all feminine or sweet. The dry down and base notes are made up of ginger, amber, patchouli and vetiver which give the fragrance spice, warmth and masculinity. The longevity of this aftershave is excellent and it was so well designed with a man’s skin chemistry that makes this fragrance so appealing and sexy. I still think that the bottle has a unique and attractive design after all these years.
Although many would say that this fragrance is dated, I would defy you to smell it again say that it isn’t still sexy and appealing
