I've been 'Shalimar' for fifty years, thought I'd never find a refill for the decanter I love so much and here it is! Sometimes I also wear,Chanel No 5, or both in strategically different places, however...Shalimar is the all-time best on my body. My grown children still think of me when they smell this fragrance anyplace/anytime The cost at your site is amazingly within my social security means and I THANK YOU for making this possible for me. I enjoy being a girl . Nothing is better than having your own beautiful signature YOU!!!

I read just about every review and description before taking a risk and buying this. I am pleased to say I am down to my last few squirts when I can bear to wear. Never again feel totally let down. Nothing wrong with the product and a good price as I had a tester. I would definitely shop here again. However this perfume came across as Aquatic which I hate. It must be my unsuitability not the product itself. You live and learn!

    Comments about Shalimar By Guerlain:

    Shalimar by Guerlain transports me to places I've never been. And times I've never lived. A true paradox of a fragrance. Sweet but citrusy. Powdery but woody and leathery. And all these accords are enveloped by a glorious resinous harmony, which makes the whole scent profile smoky. Like burning tire in the heat of summer. Roasting sugar in the middle of winter. It's sensual but heavenly. It's splendid but unimposing. Sometimes it reminds me of my signature Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense—only Shalimar is the women's version that can easily be unisex. I don't mean to say they smell identical. It's just that at some point, their accords meet. That feeling when something that smells so divine is engulfed in fire and smoke.

    Shalimar by Guerlain is that scent I prefer to wear when writing fantasy fiction. As if Jacques Guerlain created Shalimar almost 100 years ago for the unreal. The everlasting.

      I've been addicted to this perfume for half a century, and although I've tried other ones, it remains my favorite. Difficult to say why. It's a mysterious relationship. I feel better with it than without !

      Comments about Shalimar By Guerlain:

      Shalimar is the only perfume I've worn consistently since I was 21; I'm 55 now and still love the smell. I occasionally dab on Channel #5, but Shalimar is intoxicating to me and I receive many compliments while wearing.

          I thought Shalimar Eau de Parfum would not suit my body chemistry, but it did! It's a beautiful fragrance with a history. I'd like to repurchase soon. Thank you, FragranceX! I've got an authentic one. < 3
