The Les Parisiennes collection rereleases the House’s most coveted creations in homage to its valued clients. Timeless olfactory jewels for lovers of exceptional fragrances. True to this vocation, the collection welcomes with L’Initial a dearly missed, much sought-after fragrance: Shalimar Parfum Initial, composed by Thierry Wasser. This fragrance is an airy version imbued with the lightness of the Guerlain legend created in 1925.

The thrill of discovery and the adrenaline of a first-time encounter, like an invitation to leap into the unknown and delve into new mystery. A stimulating fragrance in a luminous, fresh interpretation.  L’Initial sparkles with zesty citrus, just as a shower of petals appears through an intensely fragrant jasmine. The heart of the fragrance blooms around a Turkish rose absolute and an overdose of iris pallida. The deliciously tender base exudes a creamy vanilla, draped in caramel and the almondy notes of a delicately smooth tonka bean. And then, a misty cloud of white musks enters the fray. Pure and innocent, a sensation of airiness, a discreet outline of sensuality. A caress, a thrill, a fragrance of initiation.

Iris is the star here but this has pleasing, sweet tonka and vanilla in the base mixed with rose and dark caramel to make this more interesting and enjoyable for me. Very sexy and hard to stop sniffing.

The opening is pencil-shavings iris followed by light citrus and white florals. After that feminine opening settles, the base comes in to swing this back to unisex territory for me. I say that because this would smell great on anyone.

Very good performance as well with solid, noticeable projection and all-day longevity.
