An edition to stop all others in their tracks (remember the Shalimar Fourreau du Soir we posted about the other day?). In deep blue and in no less than heavy, posh Baccarat crystal with a blue tassel and quadrilobe cap. Only 30 bottles will be put in circulation of Shalimar parfum in Baccarat, available at la Maison Guerlain.
Feast your eyes on it! (click to enlarge)
The ultra limited edition was presented during the mind-blowing Guerlain event "les journées particulières" (on 15th and 16th October) during which perfumer Thierry Wasser, makeup artistic director Olivier Echaudemaison and Sylvaine Delacourte opened the doors for the general public, to mystify them into the Guerlain cult.
Among the good news is that Liu (presented for the occasion in its chinese lacquer box from the Art Deco period) is and will still be part of Les Parisiennes line-up, staying in production after all.
For a chance of a comparable experience on US soil, check out the Guerlain Exclusives Experience.
