Shalimar is a womanly scent, best worn by a confident, sensual woman. It is not a meek fragrance. While not strictly a romantic scent, it is the type of female fragrance one would use to fragrance correspondence to a lover. Men go nuts for it. While I've heard it called an "old lady" fragrance, I find it more rock and roll chic. It could be the perfect signature scent for a femme fatale.
I just got my Shalimar today and am so happy to have found it on this site at such a great price! It has been my signature fragrance since I was 14 and am 43 now. There's just no other scent like it, I always get compliments on it and I feel it's just a part of me, love it!!
