Excerpt: I used Shalimar years ago for many years, but this time I could no recognize any scent at all.<br />This is NOT a reflection on FragranceX. I will take the bottle to a large retailer and check against their Shalimar perfume.
Excerpt: I have been wearing Shalimar for the last 35 years, but the Shalimar I received from Fragrancex did not smell like Shalimar at all. I can't use it, a the "scent" is more like an odor of something old and "gone bad."
Excerpt: I am using this product for years. Always buying in stores in Europe. This was my first time to order it online. Great disappointment - not the same fragrance and definitely not the same intense. This was my first and last purchase.
Summary: I have worn the Shalimar fragrance since 1974 when I discovered it at a discount store in a mall. My last purchase or gift was the refill for the gold canister from the 1980's until I recently discovered e-bay. I began searching online to buy more as my supply is nearly gone.
Summary: I bought this some time ago but just opened it and disappointed to discover that it is fake not the real perfume. I have been using shalimar for the past 30 years and this product is not the real thing
Summary: A lady in the hallway smelled so good I asked her what kind of perfume she was wearing. She told me Shalimar and that she had been wearing it for years. She smelled like soap (fresh out of the shower). When it arrived I put in on and YUCK! It smells like old woman...
Summary: This is the worst smelling perfume I have ever smelled. And, this is supposed to be a classic, good perfume. I ordered it because I live in a small town and there are no stores nearby that sell good perfumes so I was unable to sample it before bought it.
