Some scents fade quicker than you can say “eau de toilette,” but this one lasts all day. Master Perfumer Thierry Wasser was inspired by his young niece to create this modern interpretation of Guerlain’s classic scent — which debuted way back in 1925 — after she challenged him to create a Shalimar for her. The resulting fragrance is a gorgeous blend of amber and floral notes. Leave it to the French to create a perfume that lingers well past your evening commute.
My mother has worn Shalimar my whole life and while I love it on her I don't want to smell like my mother. This is my signature Shalimar scent. It's so divine. Two spritzes and I smell it on me all day. And although it's expensive this bottle will last me 3 years.5
I first started enjoying this fragrance in college when I received it as a birthday present. After decades of use, I still use it and still love it. It's sweet and spicy, without being overpowering. As advertised, although it does mellow as the day goes on, it lasts.5
This is a luxury brand for a reason, very high quality, this brand always hurts y pocket but it's always worth it :)5
I tend to be pretty fickle when it comes to scents... I'm a tomboy and don't like anything too flowery smelling - most perfumes are just too girly for me, and the "clean fresh!" perfumes for us "sporty" types are too citrus-y. This scent has a wonderful combo of musk and wood, with a very slight powder aftersmell. It's opulent without being overpowering. It reminds me of silk-padded wallpaper and ball gowns, but without being too old and fuddy-duddy. It's a winter or evening perfume - not sure I'd wear it just hanging around or on the day I wear jeans to the office.5
I like this perfume a lot - at first it reminds me a bit of lemon meringue, and then there is smooth iris and vanilla with a touch of biscuitty-nutty-yumminess that lasts all day. It's a bit gourmand and a bit oriental without being too in your face or too frou-frou. Would love more modern classics like this!5
I have been wearing this since I was a kid. I am allergic to most, so it's nice that this still works for me. It is weird, however, because it smells good on me (like warm cinnamon rolls), but doesn't smell good on some people. It's a body chemistry thing.4
The original Shalimar is too strong for me, it gives me a headache. This new version of Shalimar, Shalmiar Initial, has a cleaner more powdery smell. It is a modern remake of a classic and it is beautiful! Lasts all day. One of my favorites.4
I received a sample of the parfum . I totally loved it! I ordered a full size bottle and it smells completely different :(3
I have been addicted to Shalimar since I first smelled it on a Mother who I babysat for when I was 13! This scent is nothing like the original. You can't improve on perfection.3
Smells better then the original shalimar, but I just can not get over the dense powder and musk smell. I know it is a classic, but it just does not smell good to me no matter how many times I want it to. I do not understand the hype.1
