Excerpt: I have rediscovered Shalimar which I used to wear years ago. I began to pick more floral scents, so at first when I tried Shalimar again I thought it was too overpowering, but the more I wear it the more I love it. It is one of the very few oriental/spicy perfumes that I can wear which makes for a wonderful reunion with a timeless fragrance. I would suggest to many who think they do not care for oriental/spicy fragrance to give Shalimar a try. You will be intoxicated.
Pros: Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Great Value, Long-Lasting, Not Overpowering, Sensual, Sexy
Summary: I tried this at the store one day in a bid to see what this classic fragrance did for me. At first it has a medicinal smell and I thought to myself "why would anyone want this as a fragrance?". After about 30 minutes it dries down to a velvety, rich, delicious smell that lingers a long time on the skin. I will go back I think, to actually buy.
Summary: I'm wearing the 1990s EdT, the one in the very upright chiseled fan shape bottle with the comically huge blue plastic lid. Of all the Shalimars I own in different concentrations and vintages, this one is most bliss-some beginning to end. The rindy citrus tingle begins it, and it is my private pleasure, enough to energise and propel me into the Big World. Out there I ride the warm rich vanilla and smoky leather.
