My husband Loves this perfume and in fact he insisted i buy it when he smelled it on my wrist, i do love the tuberose smell of the perfume but the fact that it costs over £130 quid and for a pure "perfume" lasts barely 2 hours made me really dislike it. I swear cheap body shop perfumes last longer than this.....If you love tuberose try bubblegum chic perfume which will last much much longer.

Of all of the perfumes I wear this is my fiancé's favorite. I dislike most tuberose fragrances because they smell like the air freshners in public restrooms & porta potty's. Fracas smell cheap & sweet to me. This scent is much heavier & richer & has a new dose of Jasmine. It has a very boosy quality to it that I love.

I've worn this several times, and wondered what it was that this reminded me of... then it suddenly hit me: AMARIGE!!!!
It is a powerful blast of neroli at the beginning, even though the note is not listed. The head is certainly NOT tuberose. It is DEVASTATINGLY feminine, and I do love feminine, but it is overpowering in the most womanly, full-grown, voluptuous sense, but there is something sophisticatingly high-class and reserved. Almost snobbish.
That part doesn't wow me, and it is so sharp and fills the room at the beginning, and makes my nose feel painfully dizzy. Like I am a drunken bee that can't fly. I just buzz down to the ground where I'm trying to get this awful synthetic scent, the very accord of 40-something womanity out of my nose.
I'm going to have to wash some of this off, because it is just wayyy too much. I always forget how strong and overpowering this scent is.
Notes as per Luckyscent: Tuberose, jasmin, lily, spices

This was made for tuberose lovers. It is beautiful and the scent seems to gather heat and get hotter and hotter until it catches fire on the skin!! Never have I had quite that experience with a fragrance before. It starts off rather innocent and pretty and grows into the vixen of all vixens!! Absolutely appropriately named, Narcotic Venus just might be sex in a bottle!! I strongly suggest you try before you buy. First, you must LOVE tuberose, and on top of that, as it evolves, some BO-ish moments can emerge. I am still undecided about purchasing this one again, but am very pleased to have a decant and to have experienced it.

I absolutely adore this perfume and so does my husband (on me-not him!).
To me it smells of sultry summer evenings in the tropics with the fragrance of exotic flowers on a gentle breeze. Sex in a bottle!
As for some comments that it doesn't have staying power-I sprayed some on 24 hours ago and I can still just catch a whiff of it on my wrist.
It is very expensive but a little goes a long way. I mistakenly sprayed TWO sprays instead of the usual one and my husband could smell it all the way down the stairs to the floor below!

Yes, it very simple. Nothing too complex or exotic about it but that's where its appeal lies. It's possibly one of the best florals I have tried, better than Child, Kai, Monyette, Fracas and even Malle's Carnal Rose This brings me back to my childhood days living in the islands..playing by the ocean, with the clean, crisp scent of island flowers around me. Completely transported me to a different time in a beautiful place from my childhood. And I would gladly pay this price just to experience that moment once more.

Wonderfully blended tuberose scent. It's warm, a touch spicy and it's very tropical and this is definitely a scent the men will love. The only problem I have with this is it does not last a long time and it's very similar to other tuberose scents on the market. I feel Beyond Love by Kilian is a much more superior tuberose scent then this one. It has warmth and lasts a long time. I agree with the reviwer below, it does fall flat. I recommend you try a sample, it's a pretty perfume, but I wish it was deeper.

I couldn't identify what it was but ever since I bought this there has been something about it that just seemed so familiar. I haven't even worn it yet! tonight before going to bed I sniffed and it just came to me ... college days, what was it? all of a sudden clear as a bell. Beverly Hills 273! this may be sacreligious but i really get 273 from this, at least from the top notes... The "original" version. According to some website the 273 was
Launched by Fred Hayman in 1989, 273 Beverly Hills perfume for women is a refined, flowery fragrance. This feminine scent possesses a blend of gardenia and exotic fruits along with soft amber and sandalwood and comes in a triangular-shaped gold bottle. Recommended for evening wear.
Notes include Gardenia, Exotic Fruits, Amber, Sandalwood.
Am I nuts?

I can smell my sample of this from ACROSS the room and it's tightly sealed. This is strong stuff. It is Fracas Squared. And yet it is wildly more alluring (to me) than Fracas. Fracas comes across kind of flat in some ways. Narcotic Venus seems alive-- and not just that it is seeping its way towards me from across the room. I would never wear this. It is too too much. But I can appreciate it from afar. ;)

INSIPID? are you kidding me? This stuff is potent and luxurious. I'm a gardenia and tuberose lover and this is even heavier and clearer than Fracas. You know how Fracas smells like grape? Well, this is even more so. I love it. I would love a decant, bottle or otherwise. Not unique but pumped up and not for shrinking violets....there is no creaminess to hide behind in this scent (like Marc Jacobs, etc.). Just pure high pitched topnotes of the white flowers I love. Amen.

phooooeeee! received this from the lovely folks at luckyscent as a gift w purchase (sample) and dabbed it on. I mean dab. Well, all of a sudden I was it with the gardenia equivalent of a Mack truck. And it JUST. DID. NOT. QUIT. yikes.
Now, in truth I'm not a huge fan of white flowers. can't really do them though i've wanted to (maybe Jo Malone Vintage Gardenia. Maybe). and it could be that on the right woman this would be intoxicating in a very very short-lived way (as in, smell it for a second or too, think "hmm. yummy. sexy" and move on. out of the room or wherever said woman happens to be). but definitely not on me. I'll say something for the juice though. That stuff has some kick *ss longevity. Completely linear, complete gardenia all the way. Thankfully, there was a shower and scrubby at the ready to deliver me from the grasp of that creation. Buyer beware. Definitely try before buying. and definitely go at it with a light hand.

I love it. Sexy, longlasting, unique. Smells like pure tuberose with just a hint of vanilla and it lasts and it lasts. A very modern in the same time classy floral perfume for smart and beautiful girls and ladies.

Intriguing and promising opening with intense and heavy sweet floral essences most prominently tuberose. Dries down rather soon to a very generic scent, most dominant becomes to me someting i would describe as a synthetic aquatic note which seems somewhat fasionable since i remember it from numerous far less expensive drug store scents and for which i really really dont feel any excitement.

I am a self-admitted tuberose lover and, to be frank, I found Narcotic Venus dull. I wanted to love it. The name is beautiful; the bottle is stunning. And the tuberose is blended with my two other favourite flowers, lily and jasmine, so I really should love it, right? But after those top notes disappear I am left with a sugared tuberose that does little to please my nose. I can think of many better tuberose scents to have in my collection.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Dry Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
This is overwhelming sweet, heavy fluid tuberose and gardenia on the opening and for a little while after--beautiful. But then it melts into softness. I prefer Amoureuse to this if I'm doing what I consider lush Southern Flowers. There isn't enough underpinning in this for a "5".
Age: 25-29 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
I was hoping to love this, both for the name and so I could justify owning one of the gorgeous modern looking bottles. However, while I really enjoy the top notes--a green explosion of jasmine and tuberose--after a few minutes the fragrance dries down to a shadow of its former glory, with a sharpness that I find distasteful. I find the price kind of distasteful as well, so this one will not be joining my collection.

A boring and rather insipid dupe of Fracas.Smooth slightly waxy and also a bit more tropical than the original.It's more about jasmine and something like Asian Lily than tuberose,also in my nose.I suppose it 's a nice scent to kiss in the candlelight but why offer something so close to a very famous classic perfume.Not to mention that Fracas is way way more complex(the kind of scent that changes it's identity recording to my mood,if it's night or day or my diet)and it's also a bit greener and the drydown is more dry.Overall i don't see anyreason for it.
