Walk of shame
I have that impression with Shalimar. What comes towards me reminds me very strongly of a lush full fragrance. The morning after. Yes.
Not unpleasant but somehow settled and weak.
I had to smile a lot because I can fully understand the "unventilated Christmas room" association of the previous speaker.
The remarkable, almost 20-minute top note of bergamot and flowers, which smells like lemon oil to me, blends beautifully into a small iris chord. Then Shalimar scurries very delicately towards his "puffed out vanilla scented candle" end. Moderate Sillage, rather very closely, durability with me maximally 4 hours.
I can't resist the impression that a beautiful old melody, which should have been played with awe-inspiring registration, has given way to a diplomatic flute. I'll wear it anyway. I also love it somehow ... but you like to listen to your favourite music a little louder?
