Hello and welcome! Please understand that this website is not affiliated with Guerlain in any way, it is only a reference page for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

The main objective of this website is to chronicle the history of the Guerlain fragrances and showcase the bottles and advertising used throughout the years.

However, one of the other goals of this website is to show the present owners of the Guerlain perfume company how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the current Guerlain brand might see it.

Eau de Shalimar by Guerlain: launched in 2008.  According to Guerlain's own information, it's only a repackaging of the successful Shalimar Eau Légère Parfumée, composed by Mathilde Laurent in 2003. Jean-Paul Guerlain reworked it slightly in 2004 and the fragrance was then attributed to him.


Fragrance Composition:



So what does it smell like? It is classified as an oriental vanilla fragrance for women.
  • Top notes: orange, bergamot and lime
  • Middle notes: rose and jasmine
  • Base notes: vanilla, iris and resin

Bottles:


The original Eau de Shalimar bottle was replaced with the new one created by Jade Jagger shown below in 2010.


Fate of the Fragrance:


In 2015, Guerlain stopped the production of Eau de Shalimar and it is now a discontinued scent.
