    Default Is it 'Ta Ta' to Shalimar Cologne 2015

    I've grown quite attached to Shalimar Cologne 2015. I accept that all the marketing has been directed at 'Souffle', but Cologne, released around the same time, is very difficult to find. Is it being culled?

    I'll bet so. Shalimar versions and flankers are always endangered.

    Looks like it's still available at fragrancenet.com, although that may not last long.

    I've got this one and love it. Not easy to find.

    I also liked Shalimar Parfum Initial, but that one is like hen's teeth to find now. The "Eau" of that one is still out there, however.

    Thanks Redneck, I will pick up a back up at FNet. I have two bottles of Eau de Shalimar, one from about 2008 and one from 2016. There may be batch variations but the newer one has a little less stridency to it. I like it well enough but I think I've been a bit hi-jacked by cologne.

    As a fan of Shalimar this one has always intrigued me. I've smelled all of the flankers of Shalimar except this one. How would you describe it Bal a Versailles?

    Most like Parfum Initial to my nose, but I was late to Guerlain and missed Eau Legere. Apparently it most resembles Eau Legere with the sparkle that Thierry Wasser is famous for. I'm hooked, even sneaking a little puff before bedtime, something I never do. I have the U.S. Eau de Cologne in the batwing bottle that must be having hissy fits of jealousy since I bought Cologne and have to reach over the vanquished one.
