Guerlain Shalimar - For Her

By: Guerlain   Released: 1925

Shalimar by Guerlain is a fresh and woody fragrance for women.

In homage to the legendary love story between Emperor Shahjahan and his wife Mumtaz Mahal, Jacques Guerlain created Shalimar in 1925. The fragrance is named after Mumtaz’s favourite garden, ‘The Gardens of Shalimar’, and has a huge following. It is a true vintage scent that’s still as good today as the day it was created.

Shalimar can be found in four different types, EDP, EDT, EDC and Parfum. They are all different from one another, but they all share the same complex shimmering blend of vanilla, bergamot, incense, amber, rose, leather, and musk.
To help you choose the right one we at Perfume-click have broken down the composition of the four Shalimar versions below.

Shalimar Eau de Parfum is a powerhouse scent with a sweet, sharp citrus, slightly chemical, vanilla opening that soon blends with the leather, incense and subtle hints of rose and iris. Shalimar EDP has great longevity and you’ll find that the vanilla notes are darker, denser and more rounded.

Shalimar Eau de Toilette is a less opulent, a softer take on this classic scent. You still get the citrus opening, but it quickly merges with the leather and vanilla. You are left with a powdery, sweeter, lighter vanilla version.

Shalimar Eau de Cologne is a dreamy vanilla haze; the florals come and go before settling into the woody notes. It is delicate, light and perfect if you want a scent just for you.

Shalimar Parfum is intense and beautiful. An opening with light citrus and cedar that’s blended perfectly with incense, smokey leathery, resin and of course the vanilla. A true gem that’s deeper, spicier and heavier in the animalistic aspect than any of the other versions.

Shalimar by Guerlain was launched 1925.

Marie Lynam,
Review for "Guerlain Shalimar Eau De Toilette 50ml Spray" version

I was looking for a spicy scent and I am trying this for the first time. It is quite a classic scent, mostly floral and only slightly spicy. Not as sweet as some other perfumes. It has an almost dusty smell when initially applied. I'm still not sure whether I love it or not. It reminds me of the scent of baby products - brings happy memories!
