Guerlain's most successful and enduring fragrance was created by Jacques Guerlain at a time when fascination with the Orient was sweeping Europe. Inspired by the love of an Indian Emperor for his magnificent wife, Mumtaz-Mahal—for whom the Taj Mahal was built—Shalimar is named after "The Gardens of Shalimar," where their love grew.
Thierry Wasser has breathed new life into this legendary perfume, taking it to the heights of sensuality in an entrancing, luminous creation to be worn like a precious jewel. Shalimar Souffle de Parfum, a gently perfumed caress.
Shalimar Souffle de Parfum unveils fresh and light citrus note of bergamot, lemon and mandarin.
The luminous heart gives way to an armful of jasmine Sambac from India combined with an unprecedented orange blossom water absolute note.
Deep inside, the vanilla from India and Tahiti exalts a delicate sensuality, whereas the overdose of white musk reveals its addictive and cocooning facet.
Adventurous and creative - the epitome of surprise - La Roue de la Fortune is governed by the roll of the dice. Its wearers are intrepid, experimental, players of life's game.
A lavish tuberose, gardenie, and jasmine heart set aloft a daring benzoin and patchouli base.
The heart of this fragrance is as feminine as it is opulent: a lush expanse of blooms that inspire only awe.
The womanliness of this core brilliantly juxtaposes with the virile woods at its roots.

Created in 1972, this floral-chypre scent is from the fragrance house of Jean Patou, which first discovered Osmanthus, a shrub originally from the Himalayas, China and Japan that only blossoms a few hours in spring, making it impossible to predict the annual production of the scent. It's called 1000 as it literally took 1000 attempts to find the perfect scent.
Top Note: Osmanthus Absolute of China, Violettes Leaves Absolute of France, Lily of the Valley Accord
Heart Note: Damascena Rose Oil, Rose Absolute of Grasse, Jasmine Absolute of Grasse
Base Note: Indonesian Patchouli Oil, Indian Sandalwood Oil

The impression channels a myserious, delicate character that is neither male, nor female, nor unisex, moving with dynamism to the free, edgy style that marks the D&G fashion empire.
