Shalimar Ode to Vanilla
A new tribute to the majestic vanilla of Shalimar. Explorer in search of the most beautiful scents, Thierry Wasser, Perfumer Guerlain, went to draw his inspiration in Mexico.
“No doubt Venus would be vanilla.” Thierry Wasser, Guerlain Perfumer.
For this 3rd opus, the perfumer went to look for the rarest vanilla in his land of origin, Mexico. He thus found the plants of Vanilla planifolia, discovered by the Aztecs more than 1000 years ago. Rare and confidential, this vanilla remains one of the most esteemed, subtle and refined in the world.
Its delicate fruity accents, its gourmet notes of caramel and chocolate, reveal a luminous and enveloping trail on the skin.
