Kodak Endura paper has a history of good results when processed from 68 F to 100 F with compensation in time and color balance. Fuji CA has had a checkered response under these same conditions. However, even with the Kodak paper, you must use RA-RT developer Replenisher with no starter!

I may be insensitive, but I notice no severe odor to any of the chemistry except a mild aromatic odor to the developer due to the DEHAO used in it and the blix due to the ammonia. Other than the color developing agent, the developer is remarkably similar to Dektol with a few added ingredients such as an optical brightener.

You can lower contrast by the use of Sodium SUlfite at 0.5 - 1.0 g/L when using Kodak paper. IDK about Fuji paper.
