Shalimar was inspired by the legendary love story between Indian Emperor Shah Jahan and his cherished wife, Mumtaz. Their love flourished in the magnificent Gardens of Shalimar, meaning Temple of Love. Touched by their beautiful love story, Jacques Guerlain created Shalimar, a scent to last through the ages. Night blooming flowers, vanilla and mysterious musks are perfectly balanced to create one of the world's most famous sensual perfumes. Shalimar Eau de Toilette scent is lighter and fresher than the Eau de Parfum scent.
