I really love this fragrance!
Coriandre is a specific fragrance, so that or you love it, or you hate it! Fresh and spicy, not sweet at all (in my opinion could be an unisex fragrance). Strange that in the olfactory description is not mentioned leather in the base notes: I do smell leather. The heart notes remind me a little bit that of Jean louis Scherrer (only the heart notes)

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!

Coriandre 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 (Jacomo - Silences, Chanel - Cristalle), and even a little of Eau de Patou 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 Coriandre 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 Shalimar there is something about it which is unique and very interesting. Give it a try!

Light acacia honey, dove white soap, and a bit grassy-green. It's really 'basic' but I love it. The current version has almost no musk.
