Guerlain Shalimar

There is only one cricketer like Sachin Tendulkar, only one scientist like Einstein, only one show like f.r.i.e.n.d.s, only one writer like Shakespeare, only one painting like Monalisa, and only one perfume like Guerlain Shalimar….this is the stuff that legends are made of.

Guerlain Shalimar

I will not even try to review it, as I know attempting to review a legend is a folly. This post is only an ode to the beauty of Shalimar. Inspired by the gardens of Shalimar in Lahore, this perfume was originally created in 1921, as a tribute to the love story of ShahJehan and Mumtaj Mahal. Since then, numerous reformulations and flankers later, it still remains a piece of art.

The perfume is as beautiful as the bottle it comes in. Opens up with bergamot, sharp and strong, and then moves on to smoky vanilla. The first half hour can be too strong, or may smell off to someone who is not aquainted with the beauty of Shalimar, but give it time to blossom. This, by far, is the best perfume out of all that I have ever tried, and has remained a firm favourite ever since the day I first tested it on me. And am not the only person madly in love with it, but whoever I made to have a whiff of this, soon became a convert. Hats off to Guerlain.

In perfume terms, you are either a Guerlain girl or Chanel, and I firmly profess my love for Guerlain!!!

Go ahead, and try it out for yourself, and let me know about your olfactory journey with this, and if I am successful in making any more converts.
