    Default New Fragrance: Guerlain Shalimar Initial L'Eau

    From Perfume Shrine:

    Guerlain Shalimar Initial L'Eau

    The commercially successful experiment of Shalimar Parfum Initial (2011), an introductory Shalimar for those consumers who knew the brand through their cosmetics and skincare or for the young clientele that always associated the classic Shalimar with older generations and longed for a version to claim their own (see also Shalimar Eau Legere/Shalimar Light and Eau de Shalimar for previous efforts into this arena). For 2012 Guerlain is planning on launching a flanker to the modernised Shalimar Parfum Initial version, this time called Shalimar Initial L'Eau.

    Shalimar Initial L'Eau is both a lighter and drier new formula, not just a different concentration or bottle edition (Shalimar in general knows more limited editions than it can possibly count). It takes as a point of departure a spring bouquet, comprised of bright, green-smelling blossoms of lily of the valley, freesia and hyacinth, to accompany the familiar warmth of the modernised Shalimar Initial. The new spin boosts the green freshness (like that in Miss Dior Chérie L'Eau) which was already an element in the Initial.

    The new version offers a refreshing take for warmer weather, without the pitfall of too much sweetness. The composition was arrived at by in-house perfumer Thierry Wasser and is set to launch in early 2012.

    I've heard it said this smells the same as regular Parfum Initial and the only difference is a pink tassel!

    Has anyone tried this?

    I don't buy all the negative flanker hype since I tried Shalimar Initial, an excellent juice (which has admittedly limited relation to its classic namesake.)

    I would love an even drier, greener version of SI.
