The setting: Northern India, four centuries ago. His name was Shah Jahan. Hers was Mumtaz Mahal. Dazzled by her beauty, he idolized her; so madly in love was he that he wanted to make her life a perpetual garden of delights. And so sprang from the earth the Gardens of Shalimar.
The story of their boundless love fired the imagination of Jacques Guerlain who, in 1925, created the world's first oriental fragrance. A subtle mix of flowers and sensual amber-woody accents, Shalimar has become the eternal essence of love and radiant femininity.
Wildly Guerlain, marvelously classic, it continues to fascinate young women just as it conquered every generation that came before.
