This literally has nothing to do with the original Shalimar, so why they would name is after Shalimar is astounding. This is a very sweet and light fragrance. I might give it a better review, but it's nothing special. It's cloying and unflattering. Stay away!

The previous poster is absolutely right. This has none of the mavgic of the original. It's just yet another aquatic, citrusy, boring juice that some people believe is obligatory for summer. Shalimar ozonic, laundry-like?! Sacrilege! Heresy!

Why, oh WHY, can't these companies leave classics well enough alone? Why can't they be honest and give new names to their creations when they cater to the "natural," girly, Eau de Mallrat contingent, instead of desecrating the old classics? Maybe because they need the reputation and the charm of the old classics to actually SELL the new mainstream stuff?

I knew Guerlain - as most other traditional designer companies - was going down the hill when they reformulated Mitsouko. I wrote them a terse letter and never forgave them for that.

And no, it's no good giving me excuses of any kind. That's like saying it would be ok to whitewash the Mona Lisa because it offends some bigoted cretin somewhere. It is simply NOT done. And I am adamant in my opinion.
