Jean Couturier released the Coriandre in 1972. The scent was created by a team of three: Jacqueline Couturier, Gerard Pelpel and Jean-Louis Sieuzac. The top notes are listed as bergamot, orange blossom, aldehydes, angelica and coriander. Its middle notes are lily, geranium, ylang ylang, iris, jasmine and rose, while the base features musk, vetiver, oakmoss, patchouli and civet.
Coriandre by Jean Couturier Review
Coriandre is a gem from the past, and although some of us may feel that it is old-fashioned, it does not deserve being put at the back of your collection. It is floral and spicy, but also green, the combination feeling very apt for the summer. It is not cloyingly sweet, even with the abundance of blooms. The base is rich and even earthy. It does not pose much of a problem in wearing, but this is not your typical people pleaser.
We feel that this has the right mix of green, blooms and spice
Hints of sweetness are just moderate
The base is deep and animalic
Has a dirty touch that might alienate some
Might feel old-fashioned
