Yves Saint Laurent - Kouros Fraicheur (1993)

Kouros Fraicheur is a fragrance that was introduced in early 1993 as a somewhat lighter version of the powerful original that had dominated the mens fragrance market in the 1980s. It was discontinued within a few years probably for marketing reasons. The comparative lightness is reflected by the decision to go with a frosted bottle.

In truth, I find this still incredible heavy compared to later 90s offerings from other fragrance houses - but that's no bad thing. Kouros was never known for its subtlety. Like the former original, it helped define an age.

It's quite hard to find nowadays but if you're lucky enough to see it, it's probably worth picking up.
