I just bought a vintage bottle of this on ebay, and I'm not sure I got the right perfume.  It's definitely an authentic etched crystal bottle of 1000 de Jean Patou, full of a dark red juice.  When I dab it I smell a potent, narcotic tuberose-dominant /jasmine/rose floral set off against warm coconut banana notes, a really elegant and beautiful example of the perfume genre I think of as 'night blooming flowers on a tropical island on soft skin moisturized from wearing lots of coconut oil sun lotion.'  It's clearly a great, strong perfume, but nothing like my more recent vintage (90s) of 1000 EDP.  Does anyone know anything about what this fragrance might be?  Could it be really old 1000 de Patou?

Thanks a million for your input!
