The Different Company


eau de parfum



Sensual, full and warm. Its undertitle ‘cuir narcotique’ (narcotic leather) is very suitable, it is a truly addictive and tempting scent.

Quote perfumer Monet: "For Adjatay, Cuir narcotique, I wanted to work on a full, dark and textured leather, a leather that squeaks in your hands, a leather with a debauchery sillage."

Cafleurebon: "And what do you get when you pair tuberose, a flower so potent that the Victorians believed it caused spontaneous orgasm, with an incredibly warm, animalic leather accord? You get a wild, sexy, shape-shifting beast of a fragrance. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!" 


Alexandra Monet


ylang-ylang, mandarine, tuberose, jasmine, heliotrope, leather, tonka beans, musk, sandalwood, styrax


The Different Company

An unclassifiable brand, essences immortelles

 An English name for a French company, it is clear that The Different Company strives for unconventionality. This is haute perfumery, not compromising and using high-quality materials yet remaining very comfortable and fresh. 
The Different Company was founded in 2000 by designer Thierry De Baschmakoff and perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena.
In 2004 Celine Ellena followed in the footsteps of her father, as the perfumer-creator of The Different Company. He left in 2004 to become the in-house perfumer at Hermès. Big footsteps to fill, one could argue, but Céline was fit for the challenge and left her signature on the brand. Her second creation, Sel de Vetiver, immediately received a 5 star rating (highest possible) by Chandler Burr, scent critic of The New York Times Magazine.
More recently, several guest perfumers were invited to use their creativity. Like Christine Nagel for Une Nuit Magnetique and Alexandra Monet for Le15, a limited edition released on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the brand.
