Shalimar is the first oriental in the history of perfumery. Inspired by the story of an intense love affair between Emperor Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal, Shalimar, which in Sanskrit means "Temple of Love", forever symbolizes the essence of desire, the promise of eternal love.
The myth continues with Shalimar Philtre de Parfum. An Eau de Parfum as the quintessence of sensuality associated with Shalimar.
A gentle variation thanks to the velvety, powdery notes, like a refined and addictive philter.
Oriental. Refined, sensual, addictive.
Philtre de Parfum extends the myth by magnifying the velvety facets of iris and the sensual facets of vanilla, for a trail that is as gentle as a refined and addictive philtre.
A surge of lavender, lemon and bergamot exhales a breath of freshness in the head. The floral heart is warmed up by enveloping, delicately powdery notes of iris, jasmine and rose. In the trail, patchouli and tolu balm bring a bewitching dimension to the gourmand warmth of vanilla, orchestrating an ultra-sensual symphony.
Four centuries ago in India, Emperor Shah Jahan fell madly in love with Princess Mumtaz Mahal. He created for her the marvellous Shalimar Gardens and then dedicated the Taj Mahal, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, to her. This incredible story ignited the imagination of Jacques Guerlain, who in 1925 created Shalimar, the first oriental fragrance in history.
