Coriandre, created by Jean Couturier’s wife, Jacqueline, is (Jean Couturier 1973) opaque, utterly green, mysterious and stunning in its eau de parfum form. In its eau de toilette form it is a little lighter, less opaque and more floral at first and eventually much more citrusy. It has bright mossy notes that feel as profound as a fragrance could ever be… There are some scents that are romantic, some that are charming and many that are beautiful, but there are few as poetic as Coriandre. I think it’s the strong note of coriander – rarely used – that pulls at the florals, aldehydes and warm base notes to bring out something very poignant and yet graceful too.
Top notes: aldehydes, coriander, orange blossom, angelica and bergamot. Middle notes: violet root, lily, jasmine, rose, geranium, iris and ylang-ylang. Base notes: sandalwood, patchouli, musk, civet, oakmoss and vetiver.
It’s been a long weekend and it just started… It’s nice to see family, but there’s just been a lot going on lately and I’m starting to physically feel it a little. Although, the running helped I think. I need to do that again asap…
I hope your weekend is starting off nicely. Do you have any pleasant plans? I hope so. 🙂
At any rate, there’s a lot to be thankful for, as cliché as that sounds it’s true and good to remember.
