A bergamot opening embedded in a white floral blend - I get peony and hints of of lily-of-the-valley above all. This is given a nice twist with an infusion of a fresh-peachy aroma that balances out the floral side very pleasantly.

In the drydown the white florals move into the foreground, with a subtle jasmine, orange blossoms and a creamy foundation underneath, but less intensive than the top notes. The base continues the same theme, with nonspecific woodsy and light musky aromas added to it.

I get moderate sillage, adequate projection and five hours of longevity on my skin.

A not very original but otherwise impeccable floral-fruity opening, delicate but smooth and slightly creamy, especially later in the drydown. Unfortunately, the later development on my skin is flatter, more colourless, and the base is disappointing. Overall I struggle to get this into the positive realm. 2.75/5.

In response to Darvant: I don't know if you are shining us on, pulling our leg or having a laugh---but if not, more beautiful phrases to describe a perfume have never been written or spoken. Unfortunately I am not familiar with the scent of muguet de bois, a rare find in the U.S. I have to agree with the "transparent floral tartness" of this juice because that is the first whiff. And indeed there is "soapiness" like Cabotine (not a compliment)--but: there is also an underlying moodiness that gives complexity (unlike Cabotine) which indeed might be like "a frosty tear under a Saint Petersburg's desolating street lantern". The jury is still out, but I am warming up to this Fleur Narcotique...

Ex Nihilo Fleur Narcotique introduces itself with a straightforward whiff of pure transparent floral tartness (deep, aqueous, spicy, herbal, leafy). Peony is surely (by soon and throughout) the standout note in its association with berrish/grassy lychee and classic bergamot. The latter provides gorgeous lemony sourness and elegant "vaguely cologney" bitterness. This peony is tremendously obsessive, languid, struggling, solitary and saturnine, like a frosty tear under a Saint Petersburg's desolating street lantern. Orange, peach and jasmine are nothing else that a support for the dominant peony's sharp hesperidic intensity. Jasmine in here is not typically "honeyed" but kind of deeper/drier and more "piquant" (you'd say there is some lily of the valley hidden somewhere). The fruity-floral sharpness holds on its beat throughout but never overflowing inside the boring areas of cosmetical soapiness. This juice is elegant, indipendent, moody and sophisticated, it possesses a dry-watery melancholic aura full of solitude and mystery. I see Fleur Narcotique frankly more oriented towards a masculine side but the right woman could gorgeously wear it in the sexiest of the ways. Try this scent if you appreciate creations a la Torre of Tuscany Muguetto Verde, Flora by Gucci, Van Cleef&Arpels Muguet Blanc but also the classic (hard to find) Mila Shon Uomo (Original). Dry down is gorgeous with its sharp kind of peppery/smoky impenetrable background. An apparently simplistic accord with plenty of complexity and a veil of courtier romantic sadness.
