Winning Christmas 2011 Perfume for Women: Shalimar Parfum Initial (EDP)

My top recommended women's perfume for Christmas gift this year is: Shalimar Parfum Initial (EDP).

Shalimar Parfum Initial by Guerlain (EDP) was launched in 2011 and is a reinterpretation of the most iconic perfumes of all times, Shalimar, for younger generation and people who found the Icon too 'grandma-old'. The iconic perfume (launched in 1925) was inspired by the eternal love between Shah Jahan and his wife Mumtaz.

When his beloved Mumtaz died, Shah Jahan was so sad, that he had built the majestic Taj Mahal to honor her memory and their love. 'Shalimar' was the name of the gardens in Lahore built by Shah Jahan for Mumtaz and it means something like 'temple' or 'home of love' in Sanskrit.

Shalimar Parfum Initial, marketed as My First Shalimar, is an entrance to the Icon's world; an 'innocent', virginal initiation into the world of love and seduction as Thierry Wasser, the perfumer, said.

This soft, feminine chypre floral perfume includes top fresh citrusy notes (orange, bergamot), green notes, fruits, delicate floral heart (rose, jasmine, iris) and warm, oriental-woody base (vanilla, tonka bean and white musk; patchouli and vetiver). It is a beautiful, classy, soft, sensual perfume, virginal and voluptuous at the same time. It is more appropriate for colder days, special and romantic occasions, and for women of almost any age. It has an excellent sillage, staying power and development.

All of the above and the quality of production, close connection with the perfume icon, yet unique, new character, refreshed bottle design by Jada Jagger (daughter of Rolling Stone Mick Jagger) make Shalimar Parfum Initial the best Christmas 2011 perfume gift for women of any age.

This perfume perfectly conveys the Christmas spirit: innocence, new beginnings, love, cashmere softness and warmth...
