Shalimar

The perfume of desire

Time to party! May the run-up to the end of the year be bright and cheerful! To mark this occasion, Guerlain presents its legendary fragrances in a radiant case adorned with a ribbon more festive than ever! This gift set contains a 50ML Shalimar Eau de Parfum and a 15ML Purse Spray.

Inspired by the passionate love story between an emperor and an Indian princess, Shalimar, which means ""temple of love"" in Sanskrit, symbolises the promise of eternal love forevermore. It is a fragrance of desire. With its smouldering and slightly impertinent character, the star oriental fragrance in perfumery embodies skin-caressing sensuality with a hint of the forbidden. ""Wearing Shalimar means letting your senses take over,"" Jacques Guerlain would say.

Oriental.
Voluptuous, sensual, spellbinding.

A flight of flowers and bergamot whips up the top notes with a breeze of freshness. The heart is warmed by enveloping and delicately powdery notes of iris, jasmine and rose. To conclude, the presence of vanilla, rounded balmy notes and the gourmand warmth of tonka bean orchestrate a sensual symphony for the dry-down.

Jacques Guerlain daringly used a completely new gourmand molecule, ethylvanillin, blended with the Jicky accord. Swept away by this deliciously carnal creation, which he worked on night and day, he knew that he was paving the way for a "small revolution": the first pure oriental fragrance.
