When I smell this perfume I think of autumn, when people gather piles of dry leaves and burn them, or of winter somewhere in a rural area, sitting in front of a fireplace with wood burning. That what is strange and nonclassical is mine - music, poetry, design, perfumes. I was afraid this would be some kind of civet reeking sex bomb after reading some of these reviews, but to me this is actually a safe, comforting scent- though funny enough my TF Noir (which I do consider pretty sexy) was mistaken for Shalimar by someone. Shalimar smells to me like vanilla extract and powder dusted leather upholstery. This was actually a blind buy for me- all that was available to test in my local stores was the edt but I found a ridiculous deal at fragrancenet on the edp and considered it a worthwhile gamble, even if it was just to further my olfactory education. It is just too much for me as I like fresh, gentle and light perfum (skin scent). However, the Shalimar Parfum Initial version (both perfume and L'eau eau de toilette) is TOTALLY different. Too bad they discontinued that INITIAL version of Shalimar. Golden coloured refillable canisters or clear glass with blue stopper (splash and atomizer) for Shalimar.
She had given 13 children to Shahjahan and died during the birth of their 14th child at the age of 39. Shalimar is one of the best selling perfumes ever and its magic is undeniable. Wear this when you are ready to awaken the divine Feminine within. The vintage formulation had an all-contained, "tighter" mousy smell to it.
Her death devastated Shah Jahan and had built Taj Mahal in memory of his wife and their undying love. Perfume is composed of citrus notes; lemon and bergamot, jasmine, may rose, opoponax, Tonka bean, vanilla, iris, Peru balsam and gray amber. It literally smelled like a little living brown mouse, whose shape you could discern from tiny beady nose to furry body to pink bare tail.
I’ll add that I came to original Shalimar through PI- I never would have tried it otherwise. I have been wearing Shalimar since the 1980's and I absolutely love it! That is why Joan Harris (aka Christina Hendricks) from Mad Men wears it. Before, you only had the choice between Perfume (extract), EDT and European's "eau de cologne", the most watered down version of a fragrance, not to compare with US men's Colognes. The vanilla is light, and the smoke is almost imperceptible.
It is hands down my husbands favorite fragrance in my collection. EDP were launched to compete with american frags and when people wanted extreme strength and projection. You have most certainly a well preserved and heavenly blended Perfume with quite original (compared to 1925 formula but far before EEC restrictions and IFRA non sense) and animilistic raw ingredients. No strength is given, but it’s in a baccarat bottle, so I assume it’s the highest quality. -There’s a very “old powder makeup” vibe to this version.
Coolness of the citrus notes leads to floral heart ending with a warm and luxurious trail. It was lovely and charming, and had a swoonworthy, narcotic quality to it... Shalimar reveals me everything that is hiding in this glamorous bottle: slightly bitter bergamot tea, bright and clear citruses notes, cold as a frozen glass, then the sharp juice is getting softer with buttery and creamy vanilla, tender leather & sweet tobacco with its intoxicating smoke, that slowly changes into smouldering incense, which is hiding warm jasmine and sweetly resinous opoponax.
Here you can watch an advertising video for Shalimar by Guerlain. One suddenly craves to wander the streets of the Johari Bazaar. like sniffing a liquid heroin that made your eyes roll up into the back of your head. The modern is still fantastic, I cannot fault it, but its notes seems to "sprawl" more... As for me, this perfume recalls the era in which perfumes represented a posh lifestyle, good taste, elegance & dignity.
Perhaps my nose was simply unaccustomed to this level of beauty, as every other time I have returned to smell Shalimar, I have been absolutely awestruck, as if meeting my lover from a past life.
I highly recommend you try the Shalimar Eau de Parfum, not the cologne version.
Only in the parfum versions of this fragrance does Shalimar truly smell like its true self. Another trick I like is to amplify it with real civet tincture, some authentic rosewater, and some droplets of Mexican vanilla, the kind that has a pronounced tonka bean's quasi- "cherry/vanilla/tobacco" coumarin quality to it.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
