This year Guerlain treats us to another exceptional collector's flacon just in time for the holidays. To celebrate the 90th anniversary of the birth of Shalimar, a gorgeous deep cobalt blue crystal flacon has been created by famed glass works Waltersperger. The flacon is adorned with a 22kt gilded branch which is attached around the neck of the bottle. Two blown glass birds, symbolizing the eternal love between Shah Jahan and Mumtaz Mahal, perched upon the branch are handmade by Maison Desrues and richly covered in silver, blue and gold enamel. The bottle holds an impressive 1.5 litres of Shalimar extrait. Only 17 of these limited edition flacons are available this year.

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.
