Here in Team Beauty, we love a fragrance with history. And they don’t come much more iconic than Guerlain's Shalimar, which successfully assimilated vanilla into the perfume world when it was created back in 1925 (that’s EIGHTY FIVE years ago, y’all!). So naturally we were over the moon to hear that the Parisian fragrance house is relaunching Shalimar with a little help from rock royalty. Yep, none other than Jade Jagger has lent her jewellery design skills to creating a fabulous new bottle, which pays homage to the original and also returns the signet of Guerlain to the bottle. Obviously, as self-confessed perfume addicts, we’re gagging to get our mitts on this highly collectable piece, so hooray for Harrods who are selling the fragrance from NEXT WEEK. Eeeep!
And we have more good news! To celebrate the launch of the new bottle, Jade is offering you lucky lot the chance to meet her in Harrods and WIN a piece of Jade Jagger Jewellery from the S/S ‘11 collection! We have a silver skull rosary with sapphire beads, worth a stonking £350 to give away! AND its the perfect compliment to the new bottle, which sports a navy leather tie around the neck (ooh, fancy!)
So before you get too excited, let’s get the facts straight - if you’re one of the first 100 Grazia readers to pre-order the bottle, you’ll meet the designer in Harrods at 12.30pm on Wednesday 8th September (the Perfume Diaries Exhibition, Fourth Floor), have the bottle signed AND be entered into a draw to win the gwageous rosary. All you need do is call the Guerlain counter at Harrods on 020 7730 1234 (ext 3020) to preorder your bottle and be entered into the draw. Simples!
