SHALINI Parfum is an opulent bouquet of white flowers; tuberose, neroli and tiare in this precious fragrance invoke an intoxicating sensuality.
SHALINI Parfum is one of the rare fragrances in the world composed of the tuberose absolute, often referred to as “liquid gold”, and the purest extracts of neroli from the South of France and tiare, the flower of love from Tahiti.
The rare and pure scent of neroli (blossoms of the bitter orange tree) blooms over a heart of tuberose and tiare while the depth and mystery of sandalwood and musk permeate the senses.
Shalini created her parfum from childhood memories of the lingering fragrance of tuberose and dancing butterflies in the garden. This opulent, delicate scent embodies the lightness of flight. It is a celebration of the emergence of a woman’s inner butterfly – an internal metamorphosis where she embraces her own beauty.
Neroli represents memories upon arriving in the evening hours in Seville, the whole city permeated with orange blossoms…and the sounds of flamenco.
Tiare is the flower of love, worn in the hair of the beautiful Tahitian women… Shalini was fascinated by their feminine beauty.
Sandalwood , the exotic woody paste that Indian brides apply on their skin the night before their wedding.
Musk’s animalistic sensuality balances the white flowers.
A limited edition parfum created by master perfumer Maurice Roucel presented in an exquisite Lalique crystal flacon, “Le Coquillage”. The design reminiscent of a butterfly wing, echoes the preciousness of the fragrance.
There are only 900 bottles created. Each one is hand poured, numbered and includes a fragrance card personally signed by Shalini.
Shalini desires to create the most beautiful parfums using only the purest of oils and each one will be presented in Lalique crystal flacons which convey the inspiration of the parfum.
The motivation behind SHALINI Parfum is to create something of beauty, of lasting value and of the ethereal that will stand the test of time. Modern masterpieces.

Great selection, great service
This is an honest review. I misread the sample size when I placed my order. I thought it was 5ml instead of .5ml. I wouldn't have paid $15 for .5ml. I also thought $5.00 for shipping a tiny sample was unreasonable. As for the scent, itself, while I'm a tuberose lover, I don't care for the "green" opening.
