Fabulous Floral Leather...
Adjatay opens with smooth yellow floral ylang-ylang at the fore with a hard leather accord undertone before quickly moving to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart the moderately sweet banana-like ylang-ylang remains, now in support of indolic white floral tuberose that takes the fore, infused with significant rough leather rising from the base and a touch of indolic jasmine. During the late dry-down the white and yellow florals gradually dissipate then vacate, leaving remnants of of the rough leather, now softened by woody-leathery styrax and slightly sweet sandalwood smoothing it through the finish. Projection is very good and longevity excellent at well over 12 hours on skin.

Adjatay was love at first sniff for this writer. Tuberose, which is the focal note through most of the composition's development is usually a challenging one for me, but the leather balances the normally difficult white floral quite well, as does the soft leathery styrax and sandalwood in the base. The ylang-ylang also is quite prominent, playing a key role in adding a fruity floral banana aspect to the heart that melds perfectly with the tuberose. The late dry-down is probably the best part of the composition as the florals vacate to allow the now softened leather and smooth woods to sing. On the whole, the development is relatively linear (in a good way) and near-perfectly controlled. One non-perfume smell related comment is the solid metal cap on the 100 ml bottle at least is not particularly well-designed. It has a tall graduated structure that makes gripping it extremely difficult, and it snaps tightly and firmly into place to the bottle, making for quite the challenge in getting the darned thing off. Well-built, but *not* good. The bottom line is the possibly discontinued $119 per 100 ml bottle at discounters Adjatay is an "excellent" 4 stars out of 5 rated perfectly unisex floral leather perfume that is recommended to everyone, even those that usually disdain wearing white floral tuberose.

Moist heat that you can smell
A "bomb" scent, this Cuir Narcotique, it's a real knockout. From humid heat.
In and of itself a well implemented fragrance concept for lovers of powerful sweet-floral fragrances, which, as the name suggests, are almost narcotic.
The "Start" seems to be "harmless" at first, although something more "dangerous" lurks behind this facade of tangy citrus notes, the presence of which is almost perceptible.
It doesn't take long until it finally came out, to suddenly stand in front of you in full size:
Tuberose, jasmine, ylang ylang, heliotrope.
I remember the term "tropical" (almost all these flowers grow preferably in the tropics)
and a very humid hot atmosphere, in which they give off their scent.
Like in a greenhouse, plants freshly watered, the sun burns through the glass walls (I know that, am a gardener).
You almost lose your air when you enter before you slowly get used to it.
Such fragrances (not exactly like the Parfun, but similar), have accompanied me for over 30 years, but I personally do not want to "wear" them)
This "scent heart" remains so long, with smaller changes, until the "base" slowly comes to bear.
A "fine glove note" in the midst of woody, balsamic, deep-sounding aromas, which dampens the "flower sultriness" somewhat and almost evokes something androgynous.
The tropical heat has now become more bearable, it is approaching the "evening and the night".
"Cuir Narcotique" is for my nose a distinct evening and night scent, from the whole composition also for the cooler seasons.
I think this fragrance is comparable to "Fracas" by R. Piquet and similar creations. Or "Poison" by Dior.
They all have what it takes to "seduce" and "narcotize."

Opening strong flowers (ylang ylang and tuberose), later something between smell of sweet bubble gum and oil taning lotion (styrax).
