I bought this as a blind buy after listening to Emmy Ever After review it on Youtube. At first I really didn't like it. I've never liked vintage classic smelling perfumes in my teenage years.I've used this here and there and surprisingly it grew on me so much that I've decided to make this my 'signature scent'. I'm in my mid 20's now. I loove it! I would …Read more

I’m so late to the PI party and gosh I wish I would of found this sooner! I’ve always liked Shalimar but feel the Vintage is best but that’s pricey and the leather note I’m having a hard time liking. So when I got this and tried it I was like wow this is the one for me. It’s totally wearable on the daily. It lasts forever on my skin and the sillage is moderate. But I just love this I think …Read more

What I find interesting about Shalimar Parfum Initial is that it sits happily at the crossroads between classics and fruitchoulis. If Shalimar is an untamed tiger Parfum Initial is a kitten with bow which doesn't mean that it's not adorable on its own, just a different kind of animal.

The candied bergamot/licorice opening is especially fleeting and then comes my favourite …

I didn't purchase this, it was an early christmas present, but I've seen it in my local chemist at a very reasonable price. Even though it is discontinued, I have a feeling you'll be able to buy it with ease for a couple of years.

This is gourmand for grown ups. Shalimar plus Prada Candy = Shalimar Parfum Initial. Basically Guerlain have taken the original Shalimar …

I received this fragrance by accident and I'm so glad I did for it's just lovely. I purchased what I thought was the original edp from an ebay seller and received this instead. This is caramel/vanilla goodness that I can't seem to get enough of and you would know that it has been discontinued...boo!! My luck... It's not the original Shalimar at all and is much more …Read more

My heart is breaking learning that this scent is being discontinued! It was a version of Shalimar I could wear comfortably. I love the vanilla and tonka bean in it, and it just exudes sexiness. I think if Guerlain had launched this as a scent seperate from Shalimar, it would have done well. It really isn't like classic Shalimar that much to be honest. It's so sad it will be discontinued …Read more

I really enjoy wearing this when I want a cold-weather scent that's warm and comforting without screaming "vanilla!" A touch of sweetness and brightness but never straying into "baked goods," it's like a nice sweater in pale pink. One spray on your neck and you'll be smelling it all day, but it's definitely softer than Shalimar.

I adore this. I know people keep comparing this to Shalimar, but please judge this perfume on its own terms. I respect the original, it is well made and carries a lot of history but it is a harder fragrance for younger women to wear. I don't think it is a bad thing that they made a younger and modern version, if it gets the younger generation to discover the original, surely it isn't a …Read more

Some of the most beloved fragrances in my collection began with triggering mild disdain. I love it when a fragrance gets a grip on me and changes my mind. The first time I tried this odd beauty I detected the medicinal, powdery note you get from the inside of First Aid cupboards. A note that can't fail to be nostalgic for anyone who has cut their knee, but not something a sensual young woman …Read more

Nope. Smells like baby powder mixed with memories of no-nonsense church services in the 1970s... albeit the nicely-dressed middle-aged ladies back in the 1970s in the surrounding pews. Kind of chokes me and puts me on edge instead of putting me in a happy place. Funny how fragrance is so associated with mood and memory.
