Excerpt: I sampled Shalimar Parfum Initial in a store, and instantly liked it, thinking it was the parfum version of the original. However, I bought the original Shalimar, not realizing they were different scents. While I do like the original, I had to find this scent again. I had a hard time finding it in stores, again. Fortunately, I found it here. It's just as I remember in the store.
