I already own Shalimar EDT, eau de Shalimar and Shalimar ode vanille and I didn't expect to like this but.......I absolutely adore it. Yes it has Shalimar in the name but as everyone has mentioned it has nothing in common with any Shalimar I have tried. It is less citrusy than eau de shalimar (which sometimes I find overpowering) and more floral. The opening is fresh and bright and the dry …Read more

I obtained a sample of this about a year ago and was so disappointed that although I loved the sample, there was no where to purchase this so had to file it away with the other unobtainable fragrances that I had sampled. But I was absolutely delighted to discover that escentual.com stock this and will ship to NZ! So I ordered it and anxiously awaited it's arrival, hoping it was as beautiful …Read more

I am trying this today and oh dear....it's another one for the want shelf! It is a beautiful mix of spice and wood, slightly masculine but I don't mind that. I am wearing the original sensuous on my other wrist and that is a pale whisper compared to the noir, even though the noir is heavier I actually find it more feminine and 100x sexier! I do get the comparisons to dior midnight …Read more

Oh......my......god. This is pure vanilla heaven. Just the right hint of booze and sweetness, smooth, warm and delectable. Do I need this? No. Do I want this? Hell yes. I would gladly trade most of my current collection for a FB of this beauty.

The first time I tried this I didn't really rate it highly, it smelt pretty but that was it. Today it is quite different, a fresh soft peony with just the smallest hint of leather, it really does make me think of a perfect velvety peony petal. The longevity is better than some other Jo Malone fragrances I have tried, it still smells lovely 5 hours after applying.

I tried this today and was pleasantly surprised. It is a beautiful light airy pear which dries down to a warm amber and is still detectable 6 hours after applying. Very feminine and so easy to wear, something you could reach for every day and know will suit whatever you are doing. It has been criticised for being 'boring' or safe but to me that's not necessarily a bad thing …Read more

This is probably the sweetest fragrance in my collection. I love the initial sweet notes but I love the dry down even more, it's warm, cozy and perfect for winter days. My husband loves it also which is an added bonus.

I have recently been exploring fragrances and trying to branch out from the usual mainstream perfumes. I read an article about this perfume and it really piqued my interest, I was lucky enough to manage to find a sample relatively easily. Well I have to say that this is the most exquisite scent I have ever worn. It is light but complex, delicate but with depth. It is absolutely gorgeous and the …Read more

This was a blind buy for me and I am so happy with it! It is a warm, woody delightfully cozy scent and I can see myself wearing this a lot now the weather is cooling down. It lasts for about 4-6 hours on my skin which is pretty good considering how cheap I picked it up for. I will consider buying a back up bottle also.

I have very sensitive/combination skin and have to be very careful about what I use as I tend to react to products that are too harsh or abrasive. This cleanser, whilst providing excellent exfoliation left my skin soft, hydrated and did not irritate it at all. I would definitely recommend and repurchase.
