Rated 5 out of 5 by Paqui Timeless; epitome of exquisite
Even young guys have pretended to swoon to the floor upon my passing whenever I wore this fragrance to work. Strange men have remarked on it in elevators. After 20 years of being my number one all time favorite and only fragrance, women still stop me in stores to ask what I am wearing and make expressions of ecstasy. Maybe it's just chemistry. Since favorite fragrances of other women do not work on me. None of the bestsellers do, I would wear no perfume (even the most expensive scents turn "metallic" when they get past my olfactory senses into my throat & nearly all perfume is repulsive to me) but Magie Noire gives me no adverse effects, and I never get tired of it. The kicker is I hate the smell of rose! One of its top notes. But sandalwood and patchouli are two favorite essential oils that work for me, and maybe that is the key to Magie Noire's harmonious chemistry with mine. I do miss the body cream greatly. Wish Lancome would bring it back.

Unbelievably beautiful, hypnotic, warm, cozy, mesmerizing fragrance. This is how fragrance compositions used to be made. Please bring back the original bottles and packaging. We want the original PERFUME in the original PERFUME BOTTLE as well. Can't forget the dusting powder. Bravo to Lancome for continuing to produce one of the all-time great fragrances. And to the esteemed marketing teams....although new is always fun and enticing.....don't forget the roots of a brand....just because it's been around a number of years does not mean a brand should abandon it and move on. This brand has such a wonderful and long heritage....please respect it.

My godmother who lived in Paris for some time introduced me to this fragrance and I use it now. It is a true classic but not like the old ladies fragrances. The name is so true as there is something dark, magical and sexy about it. This is not my every day fragrance but one that I really treasure like my dear Auntie.

I have been wearing Magie Noire for approx.20 years. I LOVE it. The comment I receive most often when hugging someone is how great I smell. My children and grandchildren always say they love the way I smell. I really regret that Lancome no longer carries the perfume; it was a favorite purchase for me. The colofne smells great but lacks the depth of the perfume. I do not like any other fragrance from Lancome as much as Magie Noire. I think that if it were to be discontinued I would also look for my facial products elsewhere.

Magie Noire has been a favorite of mine for 5 years. Not nearly as long as some of the reviewers noted here for this fragrance.
I need to add my 2 cents as I was not aware that Lancome is considering or is discontinuing this fragrance.
You simply cannot do that. Please do not deprive me of my 'feel good' Magie!
I also wanted to add that I noticed the change of bottle style from the black caped style that I have purchased in the past. I actually liked the black caped bottle which seemed to give Magie Noire the perfect branding. Without it, when I look at the bottle now, I think "huh, bland bottle, nothing terrific grabs my attention and makes me desire it or curious about it." However, because I know of Magie Noire's mysterious and exotic allure, I will buy it again and again. For those that don't know.... forget the look of the bland bottle and lavish in its contents. :)
Lancome: Keep Magie Noire around.
