This classic fragrance was inspired by the celebration of love triumphant, that of Shah Jehan for the dazzlingly beautiful Princess Mumtaz Mahal. Touched by their beautiful love story, Jacques Guerlain created Shalimar in 1925, a scent to last through the ages. Top notes of lemon and bergamot, middle notes of jasmine and may rose, and base notes of iris, incense, vanilla and tonka bean combine to create one of the world’s most famous perfumes. English artist Jade Jagger has reinterpreted the celebrated Shalimar Eau de Parfum bottle. She carves, as she would a precious stone, the upper part of the cap into a fan. It is a jewel-like stopper that she dresses in an elegant grey-blue. She brings back the signet, the hallmark of Guerlain’s grandest perfumes, and places it on a fine midnight-blue ribbon.
Shalimar, the most defiant of timeless fragrances, the perfume of temptation. Elegance, sensuality and subtlety are at the heart of Shalimar which is inspired by an oriental love story. Sublime and intimate, its soft voluptuous oriental floral notes are enveloped in a creamy vanilla embrace.
