I’m a man and I’ve worn shalimar to work. Each time I wore it I received compliments. Strong citrus and leather notes. It is pure elegance in a bottle.

Prashant Khanolkar says:

Watching this masterclass on Guerlain on a lazy Sunday morning. Thank you Perfume guru for this gem.

Mike Bye says:

Couldn’t remember which video of yours I saw it on but thanks for introducing me to AKAF ,the scent is like finding something I’ve been searching for a lifetime .

Ayyaz Mohammad says:

Very nice review bro you are truly amazing.

Samuel Gustav says:

Gorgeous review of this historical masterpiece 🙂

E.J. Wells says:

Such an excellent, informative video. I was wearing Shalimar yesterday, and asking my wife if she found it to be too feminine for me. She doesn’t think so, and neither do I.
The opening, as so eloquently stated in the video, is nothing shy of magic. Bold, beautiful, intoxicating.
40 minutes after application, after the initial salvo has quieted, is where the craftsmanship of this masterpiece becomes undeniable.
I have NEVER had someone say that I smelled “feminine” wearing this, but have had both men and women ask what I was wearing, or say things like “you smell great”.
O go fairly light on this one, largely due to the quality of the perfume.
Two light sprays on the neck, one pn a wrist, then touch the other wrist.
At home, I spray a bit more. Love wearing this when I’m just hanging out at home, or spending time in my workshop.

abdul khadeer says:

Which is the best perfume for men from guerlain??

Dawood Shaik says:

As usual in depth analysis.. I learn something new every time I watch your video. Keep it up.

K Hidalgo says:

In this newish fragrance “collecting” pursuit of mine, my prerequisite in buying a fragrance–besides smelling good–is that it has to be unique. I’ve been hemming and hawing about whether or not I should buy Shalimar. Being a famous classic, it is hardly unique, but you’ve convinced me! This is going on my 2019 buy list. You’re such an influencer! (Good influence or bad influence..? Lol) Cheers!

Mr. Nitish Dixit says:

Video is Packed full of info. Very old pleasing kinda beautiful blend. It’s an good example of western perfumary. While I was learning perfumary this was given as the classic example of oriental spicy fragrance.


closer deeper says:

Sandeep Joshi says:

abdul khadeer says:

En Rico says:

It would be great if you could also do a review on Habit Rouge by Guerlain, which is often called the “Shalimar for men”. I really, really like and appreciate your Videos.

GP says:

Enjoyed your take on this Nikhil. Could make out the excitement in your eyes when you were in the perfume museum!

Swarup Samaddar says:

Very in depth review… Sir once you visited attar mohammad shop at Mumbai, it was a wonderful video.. But we the following people want a follow on video about the oud oil you collected from there…. Cambodian oud, ajraki, maliki, super, etc….

John Ward says:

Yes yes – and this is one case in which one of the greatest short film adverts of all time was made to go along with the modern ‘Shalimar’ – it was filmed by the great Bruno Aveillan, starring Willy Cartier and Natalia Vodianova, called ‘La Legende de Shalimar’ and it’s available on-line on YouTube and it is a MUST watch if you have not seen it.

Naeem Shaikh says:

Awesome review! Just got a bottle.

ComfortInScents says:

sorry, but the EdT was created 1925. the EdP – 1986! They are different. I like EdT more then EdP.
