Customer Reviews

I have worn a combination of 3 Guerlain perfumes and toilettes for many years. I have been stopped by both men and women with compliments, several times by flight attendants, often in restaurants, and recently by a young man in a liquor store who turned around and walked back to say he just loved the scent of my perfume. That is a real compliment to a 78-year-old woman❣️ I don’t divulge the combination, but some have guessed at least one of the 3.

Not overly impressed with Shalimar. When I first sprayed it on, I tried running away from myself because of the scent. Luckily, once it dried down it was tolerable. It was a bit too light and powdery for my taste though. Will not buy it again.

Guerlain Shalimar partum initial l'eau smells amazing. It is the perfect size for your purse. No cap on vile but it is a sprayer non the less. The scent just warms your heart. So soft and suttle and musky. Beautiful scent

I have worn Shalimar since I was 14 years old and, since then, it has been my one and only. My husband gifted me with a bottle of Shalimar for Christmas, but he accidentally ordered Initial. It took me a couple of uses before I realized the fragrance was slightly different than my Shalimar, however, I absolutely love the smell of this fragrance and am so disappointed it has been discontinued.

Back in the 1950's my Mother wore this all the time, Dad would buy it for her on her birthday, Christmas and whenever she was running low, I always loved the scent, Since Mom passed away a few years ago I forgot what it smelled like, well after I put it on I cried and felt like my Mother was near, I will be buying this again.
