I didn't want to believe it but we are obviously facing the end of an era. Guerlain is no random perfume house and Thierry Wasser is no random perfumer. And yet they released this one. Hard to believe.

I didn't have high hopes but tried Souffle de Parfum without prejustice. Didn't expect it to be very similar to the regular Shalimar either but that's about as related to Shalimar as L'eau d'Issey.

The top is all about sweet but ozonic mandarine, the middle is just sweet/clean orange blossom and the base is loaded with sweet laundry musk.
A simple composition indeed but not in a straightforward uplifting way such as in Acqua Allegorias. I'd like to elaborate more but there's simply nothing more to say.

If you think that Guerlain had started going downhill with La Petite Robe Noire wait to try this.
If you think that Shalimar Parfum Initial was far from Shalimar wait to try this.
If you think that the majority of celebrity fragrances are plain and boring wait to try this.

On the bright side:
A. I didn't have to suffer long since it vanished fairly quickly.
B. They probably can't do much worse than that ''reinventing'' Shalimar so there must not be much more disappointment in the future.

If this one comes from Guerlain I can't imagine what's to be expected from lesser perfume houses.

That's all folks!
