Shalimar EdT

From the Guerlain website:

The setting: Northern India, four centuries ago. His name was Shah Jahan. Hers was Mumtaz Mahal. Dazzled by her beauty, he idolized her; so madly in love was he that he wanted to make her life a perpetual garden of delights. And so sprang from the earth the Gardens of Shalimar.
The story of their boundless love fired the imagination of Jacques Guerlain who, in 1925, created the world’s first oriental fragrance. A subtle mix of flowers and sensual amber-woody accents, Shalimar has become the eternal essence of love and radiant femininity.
Wildly Guerlain, marvelously classic, it continues to fascinate young women just as it conquered every generation that came before.


Elegance, sensuality, subtlety, feminine influence. Inspired by an oriental love story, Shalimar is the dazzling essence of a woman who is endlessly desirable and forever desired. Like her, Shalimar is at once sublime and intimate. Suave and luscious, this elegantly sensual and undeniably attractive perfume expresses itself in multiple and astonishing facets depending on the moment, the skin or the hour. Shalimar is the essence of femininity. Like all legendary elixirs, it springs from the basin of a magic fountain. The curves of the bottle evoke a gentle roundness while the transparent blue stopper recalls the eternal water fountains of the gardens of Shalimar. Inside the clear glass bottle emblazoned in gold, the mythic perfume glistens with a secret flame.


Soft oriental Voluptuous, sensual, spellbinding Tonic top notes of fresh flowers and bergamot are calmly intrepid. Like the savvy disorder of rumpled silk sheets, powdery notes of iris, jasmine and rose suggest or promise sensual embraces. The creamy softness of addictive vanilla, the penetrating charm of iris, the balmy roundness of opoponax and the gourmand warmth of Tonka bean orchestrate an intimate symphony of scent for languorous interludes.

The Parfum Extrait is available in a 30ml – 1oz, 15ml – 0.5oz and 7.5ml – 0.25oz bottles and 8ml – 0.3oz spray. The Eau de Parfume and Eau the Toilette are available in 30ml – 1oz, 50ml – 1.7oz and 90ml – 3oz  bottles.
