Shalimar perfume has been known for years as the forbidden fragrance, created in France by Guerlain. It was originally launched in the 1920s, and to this day remains almost as popular as Chanel No. 5.
The bottle is just as beautiful as the fragrance itself, with a blue topper and art deco style. For those of you who haven’t experienced Shalimar, the scent is strong but not over-powering. There are notes of bergamot and vanilla, and a little spice of amber.
Shalimar is the perfect juxtaposition of strong and subtle. Put it precisely where you wish to be kissed.
