Kouros is a perfume for men produced by Yves Saint Laurent.
The perfume was introduced in 1981. It was created by perfumer Pierre Bourdon.
The perfume was inspired by a trip to Greece Saint Laurent had taken. He was particularly impressed by the kouroi:
J’avais été fasciné par le bleu de la mer, le ciel, la fraîcheur intense qui émanait de cet univers voué à la beauté.
Dans le même temps, j’ai revu les statues de ces jeunes hommes qui sont la splendeur de la statuaire grecque. ... J’avais mon nouveau parfum. Et son nom.
(I had been fascinated by the blue of the sea, the sky, the intense freshness which emanated from this universe dedicated to beauty. At the same time, I saw the statues of these young men who are the splendor of Greek statuary . ... I had my new perfume. And its name.)
A spin-off fragrance Body Kouros was released in 2000, and Kouros Fraicheur by Yves Saint Laur
nt, a woody chypre fragrance was launched in 1993.
