[...] With this new version, Yves Saint Laurent aims to modernize the sensual man represented by its legendary fragrance. Between power, virility and style, the new Kouros man has a more contemporary identity, which is reflected both in the perfume's ingredients and in the design of the new flacon.
Developed for summer, the new fragrance is cooler than the original. Noses Michel Girard and Olivier Pescheux chose an apple accord accented with sage and underscored by sensual wood and amber base notes.
"The olfactory development of Kouros Silver reflects the evolution of men's perfume. Once all about 'hygiene,' it is now multifaceted: coolness, power, sensuality," explain the perfumers. "The challenge was respecting the original perfume's sensual and powerful identity while adding innovation and a modern vision in line with the expectations of today's men."
Yves Saint Laurent Kouros Silver will debut this spring; I'll update with sizes and concentration when I can.
Update: Kouros Silver is available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette.
