Summary: Wow, I can't believe that Lancome would change the formula of a perfume that was perfect the way it was!! I've noticed a change in the aroma and wish they would go back to the original formula they used 30 years ago! PLEASE listen to what all of us are saying and do something about it!!
Summary: You are right. They are replacing natural ingredients with made in lab synthetics.I hate all the other Lancome fragrances. Magie Noire used to last on my skin a long hours, now it smells awful after a while. Sales people deny the changes, but they try to sell as much junk to you as posible. It is really too bad that many great perfumes are changed from the original.
Summary: Judy is positively correct. I just went back to the store to get a supply of Magie. I have been loyal to this fragrance for many years. It has indeed, without a doubt changed. I know Magie Noire. It smells as though it has been diluted. I can't tell you how disappointed I am. What used to be excellent, is now so-so. I won't settle for that. If they do not change it back, I will no longer buy Lancome products!
Summary: I agree with Julie. I bought a 1 oz. plastic bottle and the fragrance is powdery. Just the top notes are reminescent of the Magie Noire I knew. I decided to buy a big glass bottle but the this one has a nauseating sweet fragrance... What a mess Lancôme has made with what was a wonderful fragrance...
Summary: I first smelled this on some woman and thought how different and interesting the scent was. I wore it for a few years and moved on to something else. (This was about 12 years ago) I purchased a bottle recently and wheww..it smells different than the original, no doubt about it!! Not good anymore. Alot of the companies are changing formulas and using cheaper ingredients and IT SHOWS, YUCK!!!!
Summary: I wore Magie Noire for a very long time, then someone at Lancome decided to change the formula (I even contacted Lancome about this - of course they deny all accusations). Big idiot! Should be fired! Took a wonderful scent and turned it into a wimpy, powdery mess!!! Notice they don't sell the parfum or the EDP any longer. Sorry to see it go!
Excerpt: The Original Magie Noire formula was indeed a great fragrance! I started wearing this fragrance layered with the body products in the 70's. I was informed by a Lancome spokesperson the body products were discontinued and the original Magie Noire formula was changed to meet international standards.The current fragrance is lighter and does not last all day. I am not the only one who is not pleased with the new fragrance forumla!
Excerpt: Having worn this fragrance many years ago and loved it...I thought I would try it again...could it be there is a "sell by date" on these???...the color of the contents seemed way too darkened golden to be fresh...and the scent itself seemed a bit like a scent that was "forgotten" at the back of the display counter and then sent to me because I was the only one requesting it..... ?
Summary: Wie einige VorkommentatorInnen bereits bemerkt haben, empfinde ich, dass es dem neuen Magie Noire gegenüber dem alten an Tiefe und Geheimnis fehlt. Schade!! Wie gern möchte ich noch einmal an dem alten Magie Noire schnuppern.
