Dream garden
"Germany did not buy it", the nice gentleman at the Guerlain stand explained to me after he had improved my pronunciation. Suffle, like little Suffle, not Suuufleee.
I'm angry at myself. I had tested the perfume in Wroclaw (Wrots-uaw - the l spoken with the stick like a fast ua, like in English well - the English say Wrots-love).
There was the scent at D's. And here not at all? He cannot be found on the website, not even in the neighbouring country. Very, very annoying, I thought I could buy the scent at the airport in Wroclaw. I'm afraid they didn't have him there. And now it doesn't exist in all of Germany? Grumble.
If you look at the list of proud owners of the fragrance, they are scattered all over the world - Belgium, Romania and Latvia, from Vietnam via Hong Kong to Australia and the USA. Everywhere there seems to be this scent, only Guerlain-Germany didn't buy it? Why - I forgot to ask this question to the nice gentleman.

To the fragrance:
Start with green notes. Nothing special, I thought.
But then - it is as if it would become light on the wrist. The day breaks over Shalimar. White flowers unfold their scent. Indian jasmine bewitches the senses. The air is filled with orange blossoms. A dream of a garden. Intoxicated by this shining, glowing heart, it radiates into your own heart and conjures up a smile on your face. With an enraptured smile I walk through the world. No matter what unwillingness may come, in the garden of love it cannot harm me. The vanilla is wonderfully soft and benzoin makes the base round and creamy. A cuddly scent.

And what does that have to do with the original Shalimar?
The sapphire blue bottle takes up the shape of the bottle designed by Raymond Guerlain in 1925. The curves symbolize the water basins in the Shalimar Gardens, the fan-shaped stopper the eternal fountains.
Those who wear Shalimar succumb to their own sensuality - according to Jacques Guerlain about the Shalimar he created. The Souffle Intense is creamier, softer, greener and at least as enchanting.

I seriously considered going to Wroc?aw again. First, I love the city with its open, colorful atmosphere and second, there is Shalimar Souffle Intense.
I got the scent after all - in the souk, thanks to a lovely parfuma. My next trip to Wroclaw with a visit to the Botanical and Japanese Garden will take almost a year. Until then, thanks to Shalimar Souffle Intense, I travel to other realms, to the garden of my dreams.

The oriental scent is wearable on cool days, rather for ladies, but also for brave men. It lends style and elegance and a sense of well-being. Opulent sensuality with addictive factor.

... doch plötzlich scheint das Blau sich zu verneuen  in einer von den Dolden, und man sieht  ein rührend Blaues sich vor Grünem freuen. (Rainer Maria Rilke)

Ein Violett im kühlen Wind, unberührt, von Licht umspielt und süß beduftet, in Wärme gehüllt und doch vollkommen frei, so grenzenlos wie das Abenddunkel am Horizont (ich)
