Happy Shalimar Friday! Our community project for today: wear Guerlain Shalimar, or a Shalimar flanker, or a perfume that is related to Shalimar in some way (it does not have to be by Guerlain!)
What fragrance did you pick? As always, do chime in with your scent of the day even if you’re not participating in the community project.
I meant to wear the 2010 version of Shalimar Ode à la Vanille but I could not find my sample and perhaps I used it up. So instead I'm wearing a tiny bit (I don't have much) of vintage Guerlain Shalimar Extrait on one wrist (it smells like luxury) and Shalimar Parfum Initial (with apologies to any fans, meh) on the other.
Reminder: on 2/1 we're doing 1 Star Friday: wear your favorite perfume ranked only one star by Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez in Perfumes: the Guide (if you don't own the book, you can find a compiled list at Basenotes) or in Luca Turin's Style Arabia columns. Partial credit for a two-star perfume! And if anyone knows where other lists can be found online, do comment. (suggested by Bastet) Update: you can download the index to the 2008 Hardcover version of Perfumes: the Guide here (thanks kpaint!)
And for those of you who like to plan ahead, see Scent of the day ~ Friday community projects 2016, where I'll try to always have the next five or six weeks mapped out in advance.
