Shalimar was named after the garden in Srinagar, built for Mumtaz Mahal, wife of Shah Jahan in honor of his wife.Before he became emperor his name was Prince Khurram. According to the legend, twenty- year-old Prince Khurram met a young girl, named Arjumand Banu at the bazaar where her family worked. Mesmerized by her beauty, after becoming emperor, he made her his wife as Mumtaz Mahal, meaning the "Jewel of the Palace". After the wedding ,the prince and Mumtaz were inseparable, in war and in peace. She had given 13 children to Shahjahan and died during the birth of their 14th child at the age of 39. Her death devastated Shah Jahan and had built Taj Mahal in memory of his wife and their undying love.Shalimaris named after ‘The Gardens ofShalimar’.It was Mumtaz’s favorite garden.
Guerlain filed a trademark for the name Shalimar on 8/24/1926, and noted that its first recorded use in commercewas 4/3/1926. The trademark was renewed in 1966 to include these Shalimar namedproducts: perfume, cologne, toilet water, dusting powder, talcum powder, skin lotion, hair spray and bath oil. The name was again renewed in 2006 and2009.
Michael Edwards' book Perfume Legends: French Feminine Fragrances notes that at the Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris in 1925, Guerlain received an award, but it didn't attract much attention. It wasnt until later when traveling to the United States, Madame Guerlain and her husband learned that Shalimar had already been desired by the American public before they stepped off the ship into New York.
