Just Landed: Shalimar Parfum Initial Eau de Parfum

 

This newest release from Guerlain is Shalimar Parfum Initial, a celebration of the legacy of Shalimar. The original Shalimar fragrance has seduced generations of women since its incarnation in 1925, and has become one of Guerlain’s most enduring and beloved scents.

Shalimar Parfum Initial serves as an introduction to that heady scent family for a new generation of women, those who favour modernity and a softer approach to fragrance. The juice is more delicate, yet it retains the hypnotic, oriental sensuality that marks Shalimar as a perfume great.

From the very first spray, the fragrance delves into a remarkable spiciness, which is tempered by the slight bitterness of Orange and the zestiness of Bergamot. Straight away the fragrance reveals its sensual character, which deepens further as the scent unfurls. Heady flora of Jasmine and Rose present themselves fully bloomed, supported by aromatic Balsamic Notes and creamy Vanilla in the dry down.

The ambery floral Shalimar Parfum Initial is supremely wearable, and its likeness to the original will delight Shalimar fans old and new. The beautiful flacon  is reworked with curvaceous glass and a rose pink juice. The stopper is finished in a beautiful translucent blue, while the traditional neck tie of the original Shalimar is replaced by a charming blue tassel that bears the crest of Guerlain.
