Pros:Unusual, exotic fragrance which begins fresh and spicy with a warm finish.
Cons:None for me; might be too 'hippie chick' for some.
The Bottom Line: I absolutely recommend this perfume. It was my signature scent for many years. Try it on before you purchase; it might be a little too hippie-chick for some.
Magie Noir (Black Magic) is my favorite of all the Lancome fragrances for women. I have worn it on and off for years, and always receive compliments when I wear it.

The fragrance comes in a variety of options: perfume, cologne (like the spray tester I am reviewing), body lotion, and shower gel. The 3.4 ounce spray bottle costs around $55.00 to $60.00. Though I like the cologne, my favorite product is the body lotion as it releases the scent slowly, over a long period of time, as the body 'heats' the lotion.
The scent is based on the original Lancome fragrance called "Magie" (Magic), created by Gerard Coupy,a 'nose' who worked for Lancome in the 1940's. The design of the bottle is reminiscent of those used by medieval alchemists.
Magie Noir was originally released in 1978, and is classified as a spicy oriental fragrance (as opposed to a woodsy or floral scent). The perfume really is kind of hippie-girlish, with top notes of Bergamot oil, Cassis, Grass, Hyacinth, and Raspberry; middle notes of Honey, Jasmine, Lily of the Valley, Narcissus, Orris, Rose Oriental, and Tuberose; and base notes of Benzoin, Castoreum, Civet, Musk, Patchouli, and Vetiver. It combines fresh, natural scents with heady spicy-sweet notes, and ends with a 'warm' finish due to the Civet, musk, and patchouli it contains. It is OVERTLY SEXY, in my opinion. I am frankly surprised it did not enjoy a huge comback last season, with everyone doing the 'boho' look.
I personally love this fragrance, and even though I also wear others, I continue to go back to this one over and over again. It is PERFECT to wear on your shoulders, arms and legs on warm summer nights, or anytime you want to exude a sexy, natural feeling. It smells unusual and exotic. It is not overpowering and has a lingering scent. If you wear it, expect some attention.
