Valentine’s Day Makeover for Guerlain’s Shalimar

Something beautiful is bound to happen.

Guerlain’s famous Shalimar, created in 1925 as a classic soft amber, defined the oriental blend with a heady mix of bergamot, lemon, iris, vanilla and exotic amber.

The formula has never changed but the bottle, on the other hand, just received a nip and tuck by artist and designer Jade Jagger, daughter of Mick and Bianca.

The subtle facelift elevates the bottle with a gentle pedestal and pays tribute to rock’n’roll with a dark blue leather scarf. And nothing could be more welcome for Valentine’s Day than a big bottle of eau de parfum in its newly-sculpted design.

Shalimar in its new bottle is available at Neiman Marcus stores or neimanmarcus.com and Saks Fifth Avenue stores or saksfifthavenue.com.
