Review of Shalimar Millésime Tonka
Shalimar Millésime Tonka by Guerlain is a bold fragrance designed with a strong feminine touch. It's clear this perfume has an oriental heart, with a powdery undertone that gives a nostalgic nod to classic scents, yet it's balanced with a modern sweetness. There's a hint of spice that adds a bit of mystery, but the gourmand notes keep it grounded, almost comforting.

This perfume truly shines during the colder months, think winter and fall, where the warmth of its scent can be fully appreciated.

With a reasonable lasting power, this scent will carry you through the night, leaving an intimate trail behind. Shalimar Millésime Tonka has a high value, both in its scent quality and its lasting appeal.
