SHALIMAR by Guerlain is a women's "Eau de Parfum" belonging to the Oriental Spicy family. Monsieur Guerlain tells us the exciting love story between an emperor and a beautiful Indian princess.
Created in 1925 by Jean-Paul Guerlain himself, it is a myth in the world of perfumery, with a very passionate character and slight touches of insolence, tipping a wink towards ' the forbidden 'and transmitting the spirit of' eternal love '.
We are in the presence of a story dominated by desire, an infinite promise between two lovers who can never unite in body, but whose souls are intertwined for eternity.
Its stele, intense and penetrating, begins with a citrus burst of bergamot, lemon and tangerine, quickly eclipsed by the woody touch of cedar. Then the heart of the perfume exalts the femininity of every woman, thanks to the exquisite combination of jasmine, rose, vetiver and patchouli. Finally, its base is composed of sweet vanilla in combination with special notes such as incense, leather and musk.
EMBLEMATIC BOTTLE. The bottle was designed by the creator's brother, and thanks to its sumptuous curves and its fan-shaped, deep sapphire-blue stopper, was consecrated as winner of the Decorative Arts Exhibition in Paris. A very precious prize among art lovers.
TAJ MAHAL. The story goes that this sacred temple was built by the emperor to show his eternal love to the Indian princess after his death. This empowers the essence of eternity that the fragrance transmits.
TIMELESS ORIENTAL. As we have said, its notes are intense and deep, yet they maintain an ideal balance which makes Shalimar a timeless perfume, perfect for any season of the year, and an indispensable complement for special occasions.
