Magie Noire was a delightful surprise for me. First time I have ever purchased a fragrance on reviews alone and it does not disappoint! It has an intoxicating effect; lasts long on the skin and I am very drawn to the base notes of amber, sandalwood and patchouli. I can describe it as an alluring fragrance with a hint of mystery and spice. This is not sweet or floral and light but it is surprisingly soft and has a lot of depth. I have been reaching for this over the other perfumes I have; it is a signature scent for sure. i am very glad I purchased this and the value is outstanding.
Have been using Magie for so many nears I forgot how many. Since stores discontinued selling, I have been hoarding and using it sparingly to make it last. However, you don't need much to make your presence known and definitely not overpowering like some fragrances can be. Always, always get compliments when I wear it. And more importantly, my honey loves to snuggle to enjoy it. Happy to know it is still available through Lancôme website and pray it is not discontinued entirely. And don't change the formula.......
Magie Noire is in the category of perfumes that actually might scare romantic prospects away rather than attract them. But if you aspire to be a retro femme fatale rather than a fruit cocktail-scented Girl Gone Wild, add this to your arsenal to weed out the wusses from the keepers.
Since 1985, this has been the only fragrance I love to wear; it's my signature fragrance! I always get lots of compliments on it! It's gotten so difficult to find now! I DO hope they will not completely discontinue it! I love the way the sent lingers on my clothes (such as sweaters, scarves, etc.)
By far my favorite, and I too can not tell you how many people male and female who ask me the name.
My favorite thing about this product isThe woody smell.
I was afraid it was no longer being made. Could not find it in Bloomington Store. Thank you so much. I have not across any perfume I like as much as I do Magie Norte.

Review 6 for Magie Noire
Lancôme customer since:Long-Time Loyalist
I received free product:No
I've worn Magie Noir since the early 80s when a foreign exchange student from Paris gave me a tiny bottle. I don't understand why I can't find it in stores anymore. I've never found another scent that I love like this. It's a classic, and folks always have positive comments about it when I wear it.

My favorite thing about this product isLovely scent that doesn't overpower!
I have worn this scent for years and am so glad Lancôme continues to stock it! I am sensitive to so many new scents....but this one isn't one of them! I still get comments by people asking what I'm wearing because it smells so good...Please keep it available Lancôme!
My favorite thing about this product isThe most amazing scent
I have been wearing Magie Noire 25 years. Every single day for 25 years, someone will comment on the scent. I cannot even keep count how many men have asked me what the scent was called so they could buy it for their wife or girlfriend. I hope I can continue to buy it online at Lancôme forever because I will never wear a different scent.
My favorite thing about this product isThe unique fragrance.
I have been using Magie Noire fragrance for many years. It is consistent in quality for all these many years I have been using this product. It is very difficult to find and I'm so happy that Lancome continue to produce this quality product. Where ever I go, people comment "Are you wearing Magie Noire?"
My favorite thing about this product isIt's not over-powering.
I have worn this fragrance since it first came out. Tje bottle used to have a screw top and you could pour the perfume into a purse atomizer bottle that came with it. If this was still availabe, I know I would use more product as I could take it with me when I leave home. Also, I miss the cream lotion.. I think they should do a new market promotion on Magi and introduce it to a new audience. Half the time, it's not even in the store so I just order it on line now.I have never used any other fragrance since I first used this and even people that can't strand to be around any fragrance don't mind this at all. I always feel sad that there is never a Christmas special and I'll bet that Magi wearers are the m,ost loyal customers.
My favorite thing about this product isThe fragrance
I have worn this product for over 30 years and was heartbroken when Lancôme discontinued the line. I wish they would bring it back. I do continue to purchase the perfume but would love love love to be able to get the other products that accompany it. I have tried to find a similar scent but so far no luck. Every time I wear it someone comments on the fragrance and wants to know what it is. This scent is fabulous. Having the lotions, powders and creams would be awesome.
My favorite thing about this product isThe lingering smell of the fragrance.
Received my Magie Noire today and totally head over heels with it. Wore it to lunch and everyone wanted to know what it is was!!! It's really sexy fragrance especially when it gets down to base note and the amber 'headiness'. Really sultry and sexy!!
My favorite thing about this product isIt is unique.
I have been wearing Magie Noire since I was 17. I absolutely love it; however, with my last new bottle, I noticed a change in the scent. My daughter even commented that it didn't smell the same. I wish the company would bring back the scent I fell in love with over 30 years ago.
Magie Noire is the best fragrance on the American market.
I have been wearing Magie Noire exclusively for about 30 years, and frequently receive compliments and requests for the scent. It is my signature scent. Please do not ever stop producing this wonderful fragrance! I wish you would bring back the Magie Noire shower gel you made many years ago -- I would certainly buy it!
My favorite thing about this product isit is sexy and luxe
Magie Noire is my signature fragrance. I chose it because it smells amazing, slightly mysterious, a little sexy. It is a scent that a woman can wear, not a little girl, and it is unique. So many other fragrances all smell the same, the same top notes, the same base notes. Magie Noire is different and men in particular love the way it smells... it is instantly recognizable. It is probably one of Lancome's best kept secrets, and is probably approaching a cult following similar to another fragrance's No.5. What I would really love to see in the Magie Noire product line is a roller pen that I could put in my purse to refresh my pulse points, or a sachet that could be put in my lingerie drawer. Now THAT would be amazing! I did not like the lotion or the powder, I just don't wear my scent that way... I feel that is rather dated. Bringing Magie Noire into the new millennium would be a very fun campaign for Lancome, with some modern ways to use the fragrance!
