The Les Parisiennes collection rereleases the House’s most coveted creations in homage to its valued clients. Timeless olfactory jewels for lovers of exceptional fragrances. True to this vocation, the collection welcomes with L’Initial a dearly missed, much sought-after fragrance: Shalimar Parfum Initial, composed by Thierry Wasser. This fragrance is an airy version imbued with the lightness of the Guerlain legend created in 1925.

The thrill of discovery and the adrenaline of a first-time encounter, like an invitation to leap into the unknown and delve into new mystery. A stimulating fragrance in a luminous, fresh interpretation.
L’Initial sparkles with zesty citrus, just as a shower of petals appears through an intensely fragrant jasmine. The heart of the fragrance blooms around a Turkish rose absolute and an overdose of iris pallida. The deliciously tender base exudes a creamy vanilla, draped in caramel and the almondy notes of a delicately smooth tonka bean. And then, a misty cloud of white musks enters the fray. Pure and innocent, a sensation of airiness, a discreet outline of sensuality. A caress, a thrill, a fragrance of initiation.

The fragrance is housed in the iconic Bee Bottle in an exclusive 125-ml format, nestled within a “leather-feel” amethyst case (which can be turned into a jewellery box whenever you wish).

perfumers secret

L’Initial offers to rediscover the trail of Shalimar without its opulent sensuality while keeping its spirit and unforgettable signature. In tribute to this masterpiece of perfumery, Thierry Wasser composed a new version. He explains: “I had to keep the alchemy that makes it so desirable. I had to shed new light without disavowing the essence, transpose the fragrance without betraying it and imagine the future by honouring the past.”
The exquisiteness and daring of meeting with an olfactory treasure.
