Coriandre Eau de Toilette fragrance notes

Reviews of Coriandre Eau de Toilette

Spiced slightly on top. Sharp green. Very floral middle. Tart. All the flowers blend well into one bouquet of spring blooms; blooms that remain into the summer weather. Sunny. Very old-fashioned in its style and creation. No sickly sweetness here. I went through a big bottle of this in the early 90's. I had then, considered this a good, work-day perfume. My "sample" for this review wasn't from an older, vintage bottle. It might have been from the early 90's. It still smells great IMO.

The base is more alluring with its more rich, deep notes. An animalic vibe appears. Earthier, herbal notes, as well. Moss stands out. Sandalwood, also. It was great to revisit Coriandre. I would not seek out a newer version for fear of disappointment.

I was expecting a lot more after reading all the positive reviews about this one but i was not impressed ...at all....
A lot of reviewers describe it as "fresh" but i haven't detected the slightest freshness.
From a vintage lover like me maybe this will sound "inappropriate" but it is ....dated. Big time....
From the start to the end i couldn't sense any kind of evolution. All i was getting was an old fashioned rose that is not of my liking going hand in hand with boring, dated aldehydes and in the fern a hint of patchouli. Lasted about 5h, mediate silage.
Not for me.

Coriandre is the evening when love is revealed.one of the most sophisticated elegant and graceful chypre scent.it juxtaposes a sharp greenness against a rich creamy traid of rose and patchouli.this awesome fragrance reveals a strong personality and the woman who wears this is classy and respected and regardless of her age is still so sexy.excellent mixture of sweetness and bitterness.reminds me of palomo picasso.Earthy,Woody,Aromatic,Memorable,Classic, Strong,Herbal,Glamorous and Complex.


In the top note vibrant coriander is blended with bright aldehydes and fresh bergamot.the floral heart is abstract in spirit and rich in texture balancing the natural femininity of rose,granium with the more voluptuous powdery notes of iris and violet.then the rich exotic essences of patchouli,civet,vetiver and oakmoss quiver in the heat lingering on the skin that evokes an image of an evening tryst in the most beautiful secret garden.in fact it is divine in the evening after a day in the sun.the opening is strong bitter but after some time blends with the skin scent and becomes a deep sweet scent.

Sillage?Good.

Longevity?Very Good on my skin.

Bracing and fresh, dry and a little dirty, this is French perfumery at its best. A green, herbal chypre with enough florals in the heart to be very feminine although the sharp herbal opening is masculine in the way that Devin is. The civet and musk in the basenotes are superb and make a perfect counterpoint to the fresh, clean opening. The ad campaign for this was perfect--the beautifully dressed lady in the torn blouse says it all. If you like Cristalle, Alliage, Private Collection and Givenchy III, give this a try--you'll feelgrown up and French, pretty and just a little naughty.

Coriandre has been my daily scent for the last 15 years. I've been trying to branch out, but so much out there smells synthetic and generic in comparison. To me, Coriandre is reminiscent of wood and peat moss with spicy citrus notes. I wish those notes lasted longer, as my only complaint about this scent is that it's somewhat powdery after it's run its course.

Review for the vintage EdT...

What a surprise! This is the type of fragrance that I find so refreshing given today's market trends and current tastes!

<i>Coriandre</i> is a great example of a rich, heady chypre with just the right amount of dirtiness in a perfume. It is a very green and mossy fragrance (like all true "chypre" perfumes should be). It reminds me a lot of many other fragrances from it's era (<i>Jacomo - Silences</i>, <i>Chanel - Cristalle</i>), and even a little of <i>Eau de Patou</i> but what makes this one special for me is the inclusion of a honey-like sweet civet note. This is what gives it the "dirtiness" I mentioned, which can also be a very sensual and seductive note.

I agree that to many young people today, they would find <i>Coriandre</i> very different from modern tastes. But for uniqueness, I think this perfume is perfect in that respect. I find it a beautiful one because it reminds me of the gorgeous perfumes of the past, which were made at a very high level, even as designers. If this was released today it would be considered a "niche" scent. Thankfully, you can still buy this for a very cheap and reasonable price, and it's quality is much greater than that.

I would recommend to try if you like very mossy, "classic" chypre fragrances, and even stuff like <i>Shalimar</i> there is something about it which is unique and very interesting. Give it a try!
