Summary: Although I can clearly tell it is a high quality product, it is not for me. It smells like a mix of talc and wood and I found it to be more of a masculine, vintage scent. Since can not be returned I will gift it.
Summary: I am not sure this isn't counterfeit. It is not the same color nor does it seem to smell exactly like my previous bottle. This does not have the intensity of the older one and yes, they are both Eau de Toilette spray. Additionally, the bottle is a bit awkward to hold and spray.
Summary: My first job out of high school was selling cosmetics in a department store. I had the opportunity to experience a variety of fragrances, of which Shalimar became one of my temporary favorites. But, I must say...that first job was many years ago...and I'm not sure if it's me or the body powder...but, I was disappointed in the powder's scent...plus, I don't care to use products that contain talc. Oh, well...couldn't return it...but the container looks nice in my bathroom.

Summary: It's been around since the beginning of time and sells well so obviously it is a well-known and loved brand. The blend of notes just weren't to my personal preference. Not as "vanilla-y" as I wanted. Beautiful and classic package. I gave it to my Mom and she liked it. Came quickly and packaging was intact.
Summary: For whatever reason, Shalimar is hard to find here. So I resorted to the web for this present to my mom as it is her favorite. Upon receiving the box, I was disappointed to open the outer packaging only to find that the original Guerlain packaging of this product had been opened, the top flap removed, and then re-packaged, re-wrapped in celophane and then shipped to me.
Excerpt: V dnešní době opravdu již téměř nenositelná orientální vůně. Občas se s ní ještě setkám, ale spíš na tmavších cizinkách, které opravdu neváhají a polévají se mohutně:-) S kadidlem v Shalimaru nešetřily, což se na něčí kůži umí dost zle rozležet...výdrž vynikající.
Summary: Es macht mir schon ein wenig Angst, dass dieser beliebte Duft, der überall fast nur Lob erntet, mich auch nach mehrfachem Versuch so gar nicht überzeugen kann. Das erste Mal probierte ich ihn in einer kleineren Parfümerie, in der nur noch eine einsame Seife davon im Regal lag - und der Probierzerstäuber. Nach dem Aufsprühen dachte ich „Auweia, der ist um“ und gab das unvermittelt so an die Verkäuferin weiter. Die war recht jung und konnte das verkraften.
