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.

Shalimar Eau Legere Parfumee c2003

Shalimar Eau Legere Parfumee by Guerlain: launched in 2003, also known as Shalimar Light Fragrance. It was created by Mathilde Laurent, a young in-house Guerlain perfumer.

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a floral oriental fragrance for women, a lighter, summery version of Shalimar, it skips the musky accord and goes from the cool lemon top note into a warm vanilla heart.

  • Top notes: bergamot, lemon
  • Middle notes: orange, iris, jasmine
  • Base notes: amber, vanilla

In 2004, Jean Paul Guerlain slightly changed the composition and color of the perfume. It is lighter as the name suggests and less complex than the original Shalimar.

Shalimar Eau Legere Parfumee was discontinued and replaced by Eau de Shalimar in 2008.
