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 Parfum Initial c2011

Shalimar Parfum Initial by Guerlain: launched in 2011. Created by Thierry Wasser and meant to appeal to younger audiences who may find Shalimar to be too heavy and mature, but would still like to wear a form of Shalimar.

The pink hued fragrance is housed inside of a modified version of the Jade Jagger Shalimar flacon, the bottle stands taller and is of a sleeker shape than the previous. The blue cap is adorned with a blue tassel tied around the neck, decorated with the small gilded double G monogram seal.

So what does it smell like? It is classified as a floral chypre fragrance for women.
  • Top notes: bergamot, green notes and orange
