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

    It's marketed as a limited edition, but so was Spiritueuse Double Vanille, and when it proved to be a big hit, Guerlain decided to keep its production going. So maybe it will depend on the sales?

    Gosh, I have to give this a big ol' proper review soon - I've been wearing this a lot recently. I agree with most of the comments above, except for the 'grapefruit' comments...I don't smell that one.

    For a Shalimar *hater* like me, I sampled this one yesterday and I loved it!!! That says a lot... :P

    I agree that it's about generation (epoch and human); at least that's how it comes across. I suppose having a flanker like this allows them to keep grandma in the rocking chair whilst playing with the young ones...

    It came to my mind today... who smuggled Armani Code into Ode?

    I can't believe as much chatter as this perfume generated including a home page story on Basenotes it is still not in the Fragrance Directory -- and it isn't because I haven't asked -- no begged.

    I have to say I really enjoy Ode de la Vanille so much more than Shalimar Parfum Initial, really why all the fuss over that timid flanker? I hope Vanille makes it out of the limited ed. category and becomes more widely available.

    And yes, this one is sorely missed in the directory.

    I love Shalimar in all its incarnations and especially love Ode.

    Does somebody somewhere have some influence with Grant to get this added to the fragrance directory? I will even take a picture for him. I've asked, begged and hinted to no avail. I've even used a bit of sarcasm in posting my scent of the day as Shalimar with a note that it is really Ode but it is not in the fragrance directory. How can you devote so much article space to this scent before it came out and then not put it in the fragrance directory?

    Does someone somewhere know how to make this happen?

    Betsy, last year Plus Members participated in a test where we could access a form and enter fragrances to the directory. I bet Ode was entered, but the data is awaiting approval by Grant before they become visible. The fragrances I added in May 2011 are slooowly trickling out now. I wish the process was more efficient, it IS frustrating to wait that long.

    I wish the moderators could be the ones to approve the entries, to take the burden off Grant, but maybe there are technical issues preventing that.

    I will try to be more patient. I notice Especially Escada is already there even though it came out after Ode. It is just very frustrating.
