To celebrate this birthday, Guerlain pays tribute to its mythical fragrance and adorns the outerbox with an Art-Deco like pattern, symbolic of the 1920s.
A sophisticated and audacious limited edition, modeled on this iconic fragrance.
In 1925, inspired by a passionate Indian love story, Jacques Guerlain dares vanilla overdose: Shalimar is born. Presented at the Paris Decorative Arts Exhibition. its precious bottle, designed by Raymond Guerlain, wins first prize.
First Oriental fragrance, Shalimar is highly sensual, slightly provocative. To emphasize and give to the orange blossom its honeyed notes, Thierry Wasser used orange blossom water absolute. This absolute is the result of a very specific process. First step, distillation, to obtain the orange blossom water, then, extraction, to collect the precious absolute. This powerful absolute accentuates the floral trail of the fragrance.
