Very few match the legacy of Shalimar, save perhaps Chanel’s very own No. 5. It was based off of history’s most celebrated romances that bore a beautiful landmark, the Taj Mahal. Shalimar takes its name after one of the gardens on the mausoleum, which is said to be the favorite of the royal’s beloved. Created accidentally by Jacques Guerlain in 1925, the scent boasts of lemon, jasmine, bergamot, rose, opoponax, vanilla, tonka bean, iris, gray amber and Peru balsam.
