For Coriolan, Jean-Paul Guerlain used plants and flowers from faraway lands. In the top note, a breath of freshness arises with lively bergamot combined with mischievous lemon leaf. Neroli and sage add a touch of cheerfulness and lightness. The heart features passionate and spicy notes of ginger and juniper berries garnished with nutmeg. The warm and bold end note exhales the rich woody and ambery scent of vetiver, patchouli, benzoin and immortelle.


A man of contrasts, Corolian was a hero of Antique Rome who boldly and resolutely imposed his power. In an eponymous overture, Beethoven celebrates his life, a combination of nobleness and pride, courage and love. A self-confident man, he enthralled the crowds with his eloquence and achieved his goals, not for glory but for the love of a woman. Corolian's character is what inspired Jean-Paul Guerlain when he composed the fragrance, which celebrates the pleasure of the body, the freedom of the spirit and seduction. The Coriolan man is a blessed man.

Jean-Paul Guerlain and Robert Granai imagined and designed the flacon: the roundness of glass vibrates under the metallic curves. The stopper, a combination of copper and silver evokes the lid of a powder horn. The snap-down stopper emphasizes the typical masculine gesture.

    Juillet 1998, début de carrière. Coriolan est un chef d'œuvre, tant par l'équilibre de ses touches boisée que par son flacon à la forme unique de poire avec des reflets cuivrés. Hélas, un an plus tard, Guerlain le juge trop féminin et décide de l'arrêter. Une réédition limitée verra le jour dans les années 2010 sous un autre nom... mais le flacon n'est pas là.

    Sounds very very sexy indeed. Ah to know Coriolan, the Roman, would also be inspiring.

    Un chef d'œuvre qui a disparu trop tôt et franchement, je n'ai pas compris pourquoi. Absence de succès ?

    Dommage qu'il ne soit plus en vente. je l'aurai porté certainement toute ma vie, et tout mon quotidien.
