Best of 2011 - Fragrance

Pretty clear winner for me this year. Guerlain's Shalimar Initial is a gorgeous take on the original. Lighter, fresher and cleaner. A wonderful modern version of a true classic.

An easy winner.


  1. Oooh I managed to get my hands on this in the Boots sale. It's always seemed like something I would like. Looking forward to giving it a whirl!

  2. I am so tempted to buy this in the Boots sale, naughty enabler Mrs Hirons! xx

  3. I'm wearing this today. It's what I imagine Catherine Deneuve's boudoir might have smelt like...


  4. Ahh I am in LOVE with this perfume. Ever since I saw the glorious ad in Red magazine, which I must say is the most beautiful perfume ad I've seen in a long time. I just loved the simple touch of a fragranced stick in it's own pocket, as opposed to the nasty samples you normally get to lift a seal & rub - ergh!
    I didn't know this was in the Boots sale though - I'm going to have to check this out now :D
