Shiloh (meaning “his gift” in Hebrew) is the latest fragrance created by perfumer Michel Roudnitska. Collaborating with Symine Salimpour, he composed a fragrance that combines bergamot, rose, patchouli, and woods in a dramatic and ravishing manner. Hors là Monde, the company created by Salimpour, has witnessed a law suit from Angelina Jolie over the name Shiloh.
As Washington Post article mentions, “After a five-month legal battle with perhaps the most famous mother and child on the planet, Angelina Jolie and Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, Salimpour won the legal right to call her new perfume Shiloh.” Salimpour began developing the fragrance long before Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt was born on May 27, 2006. Please read the rest of the article in Washington Post, which also quotes Canadian expert Marian Bendeth. As Marian shared with me, the fragrance is truly outstanding, rich and seductive. I am yet to sample it, but anything described as a bombshell perfume is likely to pique my interest. (Thanks to Marian for the information about the perfume and the links).
