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.
Jasmine floriental Warm, comforting, sensual. The top note of bergamot exhales a dazzling freshness. Giving way to a heart which blends enveloping jasmine with warm ylang-ylang. Base notes of Madagascan vanilla lend a delectable touch to this solar symphony.
