Kouros is a perfume for men produced by Yves Saint Laurent.[2] The perfume was introduced in 1981.[3] It was created by perfumer Pierre Bourdon.[2]

The perfume was inspired by a trip to Greece Saint Laurent had taken.[1] 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.[1]

A spin-off fragrance "Body Kouros" was released in 2000.[4]
