Pretty Is as Pretty Does...More Perfume Bottles From My Collection

The bottle of Shalimar Parfum Initial is a jewel, and thus should be accompanied by jewels. The choice of pearls is not random at all, as the sheen of the vanilla powdery ambience of the scented liquid is gloriously feminine with that touch of elegance we dedicate to those beautiful globules. You can find a fragrance review of Guerlain Shalimar Parfum Initial here. 

Flankers/derivative versions of Shalimar by Guerlain (with linked reviews & comparison with original):
Limited editions of Shalimar (without change in the perfume formula itself):

The classic of classics and a scent redolent of women's emancipation, the eminable Tabac Blond (incidentally not a tobacco scent). You can find the fragrance review for Caron Tabac Blond here. The bottle is testament to the fact that I have exceedingly enjoyed the eau de perfume version, which is as good as possible. 
There are a lot of Caron fragrance reviews and news on PerfumeShrine: on the linked text. 


  1. Thank you so much! This is wonderful!

  2. These are beautiful. I love my Guerlain bottles as well, especially the bee bottle reproductions.

  3. Beautiful picture of the Shalimar bottle. I have more Shalimar (including flankers and vintage bottles) than any other fragrance.
