In keeping with the theme of a fragrant fountain in the garden of Shalimar as embodied by one of the most immediately recognizable perfume flacons in the world, Guerlain will release a new lightened version of Shalimar called Eau de Shalimar this spring from April 1st, 2008. (The flacon is in fact inspired by Indian art and is a stylized bowl of fruits but it has always evoked more a fountain to us). It follows in the footsteps of two lighter formulations of Shalimar called Shalimar Light (Eau Légère Parfumée), which were issued in 2003 and 2004.......
The 2003 version was composed by Mathilde Laurent and it was re-worked by Jean-Paul Guerlain in 2004.
The new name and ad evoke an even fresher version than what was proposed in the past. "The new scent is described as a light yet sensual version of the famous oriental original. It is characterised by fresh citrus top notes, vanilla, and florals such as rose, jasmine and iris."
Eau de Shalimar will be available for 63 €.(The Moodie Report)
