From the website parfums-jeancouturier.fr:
"First of all Coriandre is a Mediterranean flower. Once distilled, it is one of the components of Jacqueline COUTURIER's creation, and CORIANDRE becomes a famous name in the perfumery world. Born in 1973 for the active, attractive and modern woman, CORIANDRE, is going to become the forerunner of a new family of fragrances, the CHYPRÉ-FLORAL. An audacious creation which dares the contrast between fresh notes and hot notes. The essence gently spicy, develop the woody touch of Patchouli, Vetyver and Oak moss and brings out the harmony of Jasmine, of Rose and Ylang-Ylang. The sharpness of this scent made from 119 components constitute a first-class perfume. 36 years after its birth, CORIANDRE belongs to the timeless great classics."
