What if the rain clouds let out a burst of lemon and vanilla during the next summer storm? It's a random idea but that's where my mind goes when I smell Guerlain's Shalimar Souffle de Parfum.
The house of Guerlain describes Shalimar Souffle de Parfum as an unveiling fresh and light citrusy fragrance with opening notes of bergamot, lemon and mandarin. The middle notes open up to a playful combination of jasmine Sambac from India mixed with with a unique orange blossom water absolute note. Towards the bottom, the notes of the vanilla from India and Tahiti combined with white musk lets out a hidden sexuality of the fragrance which can become quite addicting.
Sure, Shalimar has seven other flankers that attempt to make its individuality known in the fragrance community so I had to make sure to give this one a try. Are you a Guerlain fragrance collector? What do you think about this Shalimar flanker?
