Guerlain Shalimar Eau de Parfum Serie Limitee, the promise of eternal love

 

taj-mahal-368_1920

Four centuries ago in India, the magic of a timeless love story happened and caused Jacques Guerlain to create the one-of-a-kind Shalimar in 1925. The original creation was inspired by the love story of Shah Jahan and his wife Mumtaz Mahal and means the ‘Jewel Of The Palace’, who adored the Gardens of Shalimar or ‘gardens of love’ by which the famous fragrance is named.

Shalimar which means ‘temple of love’ in Sanskrit, symbolises the promise of eternal love forevermore.

After the wedding, the prince and Mumtaz were inseparable, in war and in peace. She had given thirteen children to Shah Jahan and died in 1631 during the birth of their fourteenth child at the age of 39, a daughter named Gauhar Ara Begum. The death of Mumtaz Mahal devastated Shah Jahan, and he had the Taj Mahal built as a tomb of white marble for her, which is considered to be a monument of undying love, a wonder admired by the whole world.

In 1925, the Shalimar flacon designed by Raymond Guerlain won first prize at the Paris Decorative Arts Exhibition. Its curves were inspired by the basins of the famous Shalimar gardens. The fan stopper with its sapphire transparency recalls the garden’s eternally gushing water.

This year, French Maison Guerlain’s iconic Shalimar has got a truly wonderful and vivid design in Shalimar Eau de Parfum Serie Limitée. It was created in honor of the Gardens of Shalimar, inspired by one of the key accords of the composition.

As an ode to the beautiful gardends of Shalimar, this year’s edition is decorated with rich citrus fruits, flowers, and leaves, making the flacon and outer packaging really irresistible, especially for true fans of this iconic Shalimar creation.

Shalimar is the first oriental perfume in history. L’Eau de Parfum Shalimar is a mythic fragrance with bergamot, iris and vanilla notes ; an intense wake with a touch of impertinence, always glowing which embodies skin-caressing sensuality with a hint of the forbidden.

Voluptuous, sensual, spellbinding. A flight of flowers and bergamot whips up the top notes with a breeze of freshness. The heart is warmed by enveloping and delicately powdery notes of iris, jasmine and rose. To conclude, the presence of vanilla, rounded balmy notes and the gourmand warmth of tonka bean orchestrate a sensual symphony for the dry-down.

Guerlain Orchidée Impériale Black Eye & Lip Contour Cream

Guerlain-Orchidée-Impériale-Black-Eye-and-Lip-Contour-Cream-Visual-02

When it comes to decoding the ingredients in all the flacons and jars on our top shelf of beauty elixirs, even the help of a beauty glossary can leave us a little confused. But understanding the components in the products we religiously slather on our faces can’t hurt.

Native to the Peruvian Andes, the Black Orchid is very rare for its ebony colour and blooms for three weeks only, unlike similar breeds of its kind which flowers for months. This rare variety of orchid is incredibly valued for its ability to adapt its metabolism through understanding its environment and optimising its fertilisation and fruition.

Thankfully, French Maison Guerlain has done most of the homework for us. As one of the oldest cosmetics and skincare houses in the world with almost 200 years of experience, they know a thing or two about ingredients and how to engineer them in a way to create solutions that make us look and feel our best.

Guerlain-Orchidée-Impériale-Black-Eye-and-Lip-Contour-Cream-Visual-03

Specifically, Guerlain has dedicated its last 15 years into the study of orchids. Beyond interior floral décor, the flower has been the Maison’s key ingredient in its Orchidée Impériale Black collection. Native to the Peruvian Andes, the Black Orchid is rare for its ebony colour and blooms for three weeks only, unlike similar breeds of its kind which flowers for months. This rare variety of orchid is incredibly valued for its ability to adapt its metabolism through understanding its environment and optimising its fertilisation and fruition.

Today Guerlain introduces a new product to its Imperiale Black collection. Continuing in the vein of Orchidée Impériale Black The Cream, Guerlain’s skincare masterpiece, the famous upscale brand is launching the Orchidée Impériale Black Eye & Lip Contour Cream.

The entire Orchidée Imperiale Black range is based on rejuvenating powers of the Black Orchid, which is known for increasing its longevity by successfully adapting to any environment. Harnessing the powers of the precious orchid, Guerlain’s research and development team has developed the special Blackimmune technology, which targets 95% of cells involved in the skin’s defensive system.

Guerlain-Orchidée-Impériale-Black-Eye-and-Lip-Contour-Cream-Visual-05

The very same technology has been used in the production of the new Orchidee Impériale Black Eye & Lip Contour Cream, which is developed to target the visible signs of aging in areas around the lips and eyes. The Blackimmune technology helps to minimize the visible signs of aging, making the skin smoother, more defined, and better protected from environmental stressors.

Guerlain’s Blackimmune Technology, the precise extraction of these precious black orchid qualities is made possible, and is said to be the closest thing to a drink from the fabled fountain of youth.

The inclusion of Spilanthes Extract smooths the appearance of expression lines, while the genuine 24K Gold particles help to illuminate the skin. The skin around the eye and lip is left stronger, and more resilient, with minimized signs of aging, less pronounced signs of fatigue, the upper eyelids enhanced, and the lip contours sharply defined.

Guerlain-Orchidée-Impériale-Black-Eye-and-Lip-Contour-Cream-Visual-04

Directions for use: 

Take a dab of Orchidee Imperiale Black Eye & Lip Contour Cream with the small-tipped end of the applicator. Then, using its rounded part, apply to the undereye and lip contour areas.

The eye contour area
I. Smooth:
Trace a ‘figure eight’. To make the first loop, start applying at the inner corner of the eye, continue under the brow to the temple, then return – under the eye – to the starting point. Repeat for the other eye to complete the ‘figure eight’.
II. To help smooth the eye contour area:
Using the rounded end of the applicator, slowly and gradually apply firm pressure to each of the ‘acu-pressure points’ (see below) for 5 seconds, then release pressure for another 5 seconds.

To relax the entire eye contour area:
1. Apply pressure midway between the eyebrows.

To tone the skin:
2. Inner corner of the eye
3. Sweep from the ‘head’ to the ‘tail’ of the eyebrow.
4. ‘Tail’ of the eyebrow
5. Temples
6. Proceed from the ‘tail’ of the brow to the inner corner of the eye, patting gently under the eye. Repeat for the other eye.

Lip contour
III. Smooth:
Press firmly and smooth, sweeping along the natural lip contour line, first in one direction, then the other. Perform a similar maneuver, but replace the sweeping motion with gentle patting to plump up the lips.
IV. To gently stimulate the skin:
Apply pressure to a point between the Cupid’s bow and the nose.

Amazingly beautiful: Guerlain Météorites Perles de Satin

Guerlain-Météorites-Perles-de-Satin.jpg

Before glowing skin was even in, Guerlain was already all about giving skin a lit-from-within radiance. In 1987, the French Maison created Météorites, loose powder in the form of multi-coloured pearls to infuse skin with luminosity. And the story goes, the hand-crafted pearls have become an icon in its own right. A true Holy Grail.

For starters, they aren’t just pretty to look at. Its subtle blend of different colours and finishes meld perfectly together to colour correct and naturally illuminate. The pearls are also formulated with a technology that transforms light invisible to the naked eye into an endless glow on the skin. And with the opening of each box, you’ll be greeted by the familiar violet fragrance that’s been with the Météorites since the very beginning.

There are four permanent shade offerings (1 Blan de Perles, 2 Clair, 3 Medium and 4 Dore) and then there are limited-edition creations like the latest Perles de Satin, which is part of the brand’s Summer 2019 collection.

The Météorites Perles de Satin has two shimmering shades. Fuchsia to give skin a vibrant glow and orange for sun-kissed warmth. It also has beige and gold pearls to rid all hints of dullness with a golden beam. Apply a light veil all over to set makeup and naturally enhance skin’s aura or use on cheekbones to illuminate facial contours. And speaking from experience, one tub goes a long long way.
