#SCENTED: KOUROS By YvesSaintLaurent


From the vanilla walls of Grecian Baths and Steam Houses comes inspiration for a men’s fragrance to rejuvenate the senses in a season set in stone to desire the notes of musk and cedar wood. Taking its cues of revitalising and purity from Greek traditions, YvesSaintLaurent’s Kouros presents an updated and limited edition version of its widely popular Kouros Original.

The 2014 Limited Edition Citrus Chypre Kouros by YSL comes in a see through glass bottle, taunting your senses with its enigmatic blue liquid. Its outer box uses a fresh white and silver look with Kouros engraved in blue in the middle of a column embellished with silver mosaic. Symbolizing luxury, this assists in the contrast of freshness and power of the fragrance.

The Citrus Chypre edition of Kouros is topped with Bergamot, lemon and Aldehyde. In its heart lay Geranium, Artemisia, Solar Accord and Ozonic Accord. All this, grounded by a base of leather Accord, Patchouli, Cedar wood and incense. What does this mean for your admirers’ noses? Simple really: A spicy punch to the nose followed by a settling of fruity fragrance which is then trailed by a fresh closing perfume, thanks to the Bergamot. It will captivate without demanding attention.






Kouros Energizing by YvesSaintLaurent is available in a 100ML bottle at a RRP of R949 at all leading retailers nationwide.
