The luminous heart of Shalimar Souffle perfume de Parfum
Thierry Wasser has chosen to start his composition with the lively and fresh notes of citrus fruits such as bergamot, lemon and tangerine. & nbsp; Mainly cultivated in Italy, in the province of Reggio di Calabria, bergamot is the fruit of the bergamot tree. Admittedly, little is known about bergamot, its botanical name or its exact origin. We know that it is a spherical citrus fruit that looks like an orange, but with the color of lemon. The skin is also rougher and thicker than other citrus fruits. Bergamot cannot be eaten, its essential oil is extracted, mainly for perfumery. It gives off fresh, sweet, sweet, floral and slightly peppery tones. Then, the heart of “Shalimar Souffle de Parfum” is filled with white flowers, more particularly sambac jasmine from India and orange blossom absolute. Along with the rose, jasmine is one of the most used flowers in perfumery. With its opulent scent, jasmine is a very feminine flower. Originally from the Himalayas, jasmine is now mainly cultivated in Grasse, but also in India and Italy. Its name comes from the Persian “Yasmin” which means “gift from God”. In perfumery, jasmine offers very floral, vanilla and sweet scents. Finally, the base of “Souffle de Shalimar” is sensual thanks to the presence of vanilla and white musks. The precious nectar is contained in the iconic bottle of “Shalimar”. It is tinted for the occasion with a gradient blue, a symbol of softness.
