I almost purchased this without actually smelling it because I'm a fool for spicy heavy wintery scents. I was in Ulta and took a quick sniff before grabbing it and I stumbled back a few feet. Now,...

Warning: I never properly tried any vintage Shalimar, so this is a review on the current Shalimar (EDP and Parfum). If you want comparisons with pre-reform versions, please skip to another review....

My very first perfume, for my 16th birthday. Wore it through early college--soft, elegant, complex, a training ground for my nose. Made me feel so adult. Over the years Guerlain changed Shalimar,...
