Four centuries ago, in India, Emperor Shah Jahan fell hopelessly in love with Princess Mumtaz Mahal and had the enchanting Gardens of Shalimar built for her. Inspired by this passionate love story, Jacques Guerlain created the legendary Shalimar in 1925.
85 years later, Shalimar Parfum Initial reinterprets the legend in a new modern and luminous creation. An initiation into voluptuousness, sensuality, an initiation into Shalimar. It is the moment when it all begins, like the freshness of the first time, like a captivating new emotion.
Shalimar Parfum Initial takes up the bottle with its sensual curves and the blue sapphire stopper inspired by the basins of the Gardens of Shalimar. Absolutely modern, it dresses up in a delicate tassel in capricious blue tones.
A luminous interpretation with ambery floral notes. The fresh burst of bergamot gives way to a delicate floral heart: an orchestrated overdose of rose, jasmine and iris. The vanilla and tonka bean base is just as addictive as its predecessor, Shalimar.
Shalimar Parfum Initial has been crafted on the basis of four ingredients particularly favoured by Guerlain creators: rose, iris, vanilla and tonka bean. These four ingredients are also inseparable from the legendary Guerlinade, the sensual seal of Guerlain creations, the je ne sais quoi that gives Guerlain fragrances this very identifiable style.
