Scent of desire
Inspired by the story of a mad love between an emperor and an Indian princess, Shalimar, which in Sanskrit means "Temple of love", forever symbolizes the essence of desire, the promise of eternal love. Oriental flagship in perfumery, a bit sulfurous, always incandescent, it embodies a sensuality on the skin, a hint of the forbidden. "Wearing Shalimar means letting your senses take power" said Jacques Guerlain.
In 1925, the Shalimar bottle, designed by Raymond Guerlain, won first prize at the Decorative Arts exhibition in Paris. Its coeurbes are inspired by the basins of the famous gardens of Shalimar. The fan cap, with sapphire transparency, recalls its eternal jets of water.
