Guerlain Shalimar Oiseau of Paradise


Jacques Guerlain’s ground-breaking, 1925 fragrance creation marked the first oriental scent in modern perfume making and heralded the greatest love story of all time. Shalimar is a symbol of the passionate love that the Indian Emperor Shah Jahan bore for his wife Muntaz Mahal. At her feet, he laid out a carpet of extraordinary flowers: the sumptuous Gardens of Shalimar. Clear springs were said to run through the heart of these gardens while fountains hummed, filling basins and fountain bowls with the crystalline murmur of water. It is also told that a pair of Birds of Paradise with magnificent plumage were the day-and-night guardians of a love potion in these gardens.

Now Maison Guerlain launched Shalimar Oiseau of Paradise for most elegant and confident women. Guerlain has imagined a legendary décor to accompany the new opus of Shalimar Eau de Parfum. The slender silhouette of the perfume’s two guardian angels throws a matte shadow outline against the night-blue backdrop of the box, illuminated by the gentle shimmer of the golden logo. The bottle’s feminine shoulders appear bathed in glossy moonlight, wearing a sophisticated silk feather draping around the neck, held in place by a blue satin ribbon. The Oiseau de Paradis signature is inscribed in golden ink with light, slender handwriting, resembling the creatures that have inspired it. A sort of invitation to a mirage, in which dreams could take flight into the evening light, rising towards other tales that Shalimar may soon whisper to us in our sleep…


Guerlain Shalimar Oiseau of Paradise is a limited-edition fragrance with a dark blue bottle that accentuates a woman’s certain desire and inner feelings. Shalimar Oiseau of Paradise, aka Shalimar Birds of Paradise, expresses a woman’s softness and femininity with its ultra sensual and alluring notes.
