    Default Shalimar Ode de la Vanille Limited Edition to launch this year

    I don't have a release date on this, but it's a Shalimar with vanilla.

    Shalimar with Vanilla- Ode a la Vanille in new bottle Limited Edition

    A unique composition of 2 types of vanilla Teinture de vanille from Mayotte
    and Absolute de vanille from Madagascar. Created by Thierry Wasser and the bottle
    designed by Jade Jagger 50ml 1.7Fl.Oz 110.00

    Thanks to the wonderful Guerlain boutique personnel at the Palazzo for this!

    I had problems with some Guerlains and too much vanilla as in Oriental Brulant, Cuir Beluga and Chypre Fatale. I like the more subtle vanilla in Mouchoir, Shalimar and Habit Rouge.

    I will have to try this.

    This new Shalimar flanker sounds good as I enjoy vanilla. Unfortunately I have more faith in the bottle designer than in the perfumer. Mr. Wasser still has not hit one out of the park, as they say in baseball, IMO. I hope it will be widely distributed. Still better, I hope it is a success.

    Now, see I would really like it if they would make a Shalimar spin-off with NO vanilla!

    I guess they are hopping on the current "gourmand" fad.

    Personally, I will always think of the early 21st century as the Dark Night of the Pastry-Scented Youth.

    Nick, although I am not a fan of some of Wasser's perfumes, Quand Vient la Pleuie is simply beautiful and I am enjoying his Cologne de Perfumeur.

    A lot of people were not impressed with Guerlain Homme, but Asha gave me a sample of the more concentrated version (I can't recall what the name is "Guerlain Homme something or other) and it was very beautiful. Of course this is only my humble opinion and of course I liked Guerlain Homme the original anyway.

    OOOOOOH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't.Wait.To.Try!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    WRT to Thierry Wasser's creations, I'm with Arwen Elf on Quand Vient la Pluie -- absolutely beautiful -- and I am loving Cologne du Parfumeur. The latter is a delight, IMO refreshing without being screechy or synthetic smelling, and is quite a departure for me as I favor mostly orientals and gourmands.

    Yet another one to buy un-sniffed! What could be more delicious, more GUERLAIN than a rendition of Shalimar with more-more-more vanilla? Can't wait 'till October now...

    I saw a visual of this today... we can expect a lovely presentation of the Jade Jagger bottle in a rather special box. I'm on the waiting list... will be on counter here in Aus November 7th.
    The notes accompanying the visual I've read mentions that the 'leather'(?) aspect has been reduced, and the 'gourmand' aspect amped up!

    Interesting...
    we'll have to wait and see how we'll compare it with other vanilla-centered fragrances.

    cheers

    So, since it is in the new EdP bottle, I guess we can assume that the new fragrance is EdP strength?

    Will this one be limited to Guerlain stores or will be more accessible?

    It will roll out to most stores Rick. Trust me, if Perth, Australia is getting it, practically everyone is getting it

    More vanilla???
    I already think Shalimar has way toooo much vanilla! (yes, I know it's sacrilege to say so)
    I think Cathodera has an intriguing idea... Shalimar without vanilla... hmmmm...

    Yes. I like Shalimar very much indeed, but I find it extremely vanillic as it is and wouldn't want more of that particular note. Oh well, one lemming less!

    Any news on when this will hit Canada? I think Shalimar with extra vanilla will be perfect & cannot wait to sniff it...

    Obviously, I'm aware that the creamy ethylvanillin is the star ingredient of Shalimar, but I have always associated it more with patchouli, opoponax, even clove. I immensely enjoyed Shalimar Light for making the vanilla itself stand more naked. I dream of a Shalimar with vanilla intensely highlighted, soft, strong and delectable.

    Totally agree. I love Shalimar, but I think a little more vanilla will make it even better. Can't wait to try this.
