Shalimar Souffle de Lumière, a new Eau de Parfum by Guerlain.
A luminous fragrance composed like an ode to light.
In this new interpretation, Souffle de Parfum, Thierry Wasser imbues Shalimar with an air of solar radiance.
Once upon a time, four centuries ago, in India, there was a love that knew no bounds. For his beloved wife, the princess Mumtaz Mahal, the emperor Shah Jahan ordered the creation of the most luxurious gardens of Shalimar as a setting for their love. Later, he erected the Taj Mahal, a marvel admired by the entire world. This fabulous story inspired Jacques Guerlain to create an exquisitely seductive scent, the world’s very first oriental fragrance: Shalimar.
