This is my first oriental fragrance. I heard a lot about this fragrance, and finally decided to give it a try. I kinda have a love-hate relationship with it now. Initially, I didn't like it. It has a sharp leathery smell which is like burnt rubber, which made my nose itched. However, my opinion about this fragrance changed after a few hours, as the dry down is amazing, it smelled strongly of …Read more

I've recently gotten rid of all of my other perfumes and am focusing on only collecting Guerlain. Shalimar was one that I was sure I was NOT going to love. It just seemed so old lady-ish based on reviews Ive read. However, I decided to give it a try and now I LOVE it.

On first spray and wet there is something so strong that I dont like: maybe the leathery notes. I dont get the …

I have this in all versions (Parfum, EDP, and EDT) except EDC (which is also beautiful). This is truly a wonderful scent. You need to give it a chance though to develop. I find depending on what concentration you have, it can go many ways. The opening is harsh to me, with the bergamot so sharp. Out of the three, the EDT is my favorite. It has a warm character, and the dry down is to die for. The …Read more

Shalimar is one of a kind and she is BEAUTIFUL. But you know that ... unless you tried the EDP and got the burned rubber note that starts ( I am pretty sure it is the initial entrance of the “leather “ note ) and will DISAPPEAR if you are patient . Yes, it is very bad for a brief few seconds . I find it dissipates and the other notes prevail to perfection. Others may have a different experience …Read more

As much as I love the idea and history of Guerlain's classic scents, none of their fragrances really work well with my body chemistry. Still, when I found a bottle of this - the 50 ml spray bottle that sells for $122 in Canada - for under $70 at Costco, I grabbed it with both hands! The bottle is gorgeous - absolutely gorgeous - and I do really like the scent but it's not a …Read more

I am so sorry but this is a no no for me. Smells of baby powder and on my skin stays barely an hour. Is this really the most loved perfume around? ????

I fell in love with Shalimar Parfum Initial first which I think allowed me to love and appreciate Shalimar. At first I just thought it wouldn’t be for me. But how wrong was I. I kept having a hard time getting over the leather note. But as I wore this I noticed such wonderful scents like incense and vanilla. I also love the citrus in Shalimar I think they smell so good. But as this fragrance …Read more

Shalimar has a bit of a history in my family. I grew up with my paternal grandmother wearing this lovely scent and I have been told that my great grandmother also used to wear it as well. It was given to her as a gift from my great grandfather when he returned from Paris after WWII.

History aside, this is a lovely perfume. It is a warm winter scent with soft amber notes and rich …

Hands down and without hesitation, Shalimar is THE paramount of perfumes; the single greatest fragrance ever created.
