I too have the l'eau de toilette as well and I agree with the reviewer below to me it is just as strong as the bottles I used in the early 90's. I grew up in the 1990's and I wore this all the time...

Witchy! I have the version in the square bottle currently being sold by Lancôme, called “L’eau de toilette.” I’m sure it’s a lighter and more attenuated version of the ‘70s-‘80s original (which...

This review is for the product sold now and NOT the vintage scent (AKA when real ingredients were used instead of synthetics). I started wearing this scent in 1980 and loved it...along with the...

A majestic vintage power house. This perfume reads, to me, not so much dark, as it does sinister. To me, darkness needs more sumptuousness, more haze, more smoke. Like Jo Malone's smoky...

Iconoclast? Maybe this fragrance is for you. I suppose I must be in that group also. I adore Magie Noire. But then I am also a fan of fragrances like Emeraude by Coty and also of Tabu by...

Magie Noire is difficult to talk about for several reasons: 1) It's so weird that you're unsure if it's actually supposed to smell like that or if your sample has gone off. 2) There's a good...

Magie Noire was never a top fragrance choice for me. Through the years, it has become a cult classic, so I decided to revisit it and purchased a vintage bottle. I've worn it in two seasons before...

No, no, no, at least to the modern version of it! Having read some raving reviews about this classic, I ventured out to the loal drugstore with a well-composed perfume section and took a hopeful...

Oh Magie Noire what have they done to you? Every bit of gorgeous, sexy smokiness has gone - cheapened to the point of extinction. There is a trace of the old magic like a wisp from Gandalf's wand...

Magie Noire is discontinued!!! I will not buy any other products from Lancome - ever! Their line management are complete losers.

My Mum used to wear this in the 90s. I got a sample the other day, and they've changed the smell beyond recognition. This smells like either an ancient man or an animal fell asleep in my bed and...

This really needs two reviews: one for the vintage formulation (in the funny round bottle) and one for the current edt sold in stores. Vintage: starts out a bright raspberry and chocolate note...

Straight up Bánh mì. It sprays on a promising, yet vaguely astringent oriental, but within seconds it is the various components of a Vietnamese sandwich. Cilantro, daikon, pork belly, chiles,...

As far as I'm concerned, the true Magie Noire should be considered "discontinued." Lancome still produces something called Magie Noire, in a glass bottle. However, this is a pale and anemic distant...

I had no idea Lancome still sold this fragrance, that is how much I shop in department stores these days. Its a warm, slightly spicy sort of witchy ( in a good way ) scent... Very big back in...

A green chypre in the classic sense with a touch of sweetness in the florals. Well done, but a bit too classic for my personality.

There is something very cool in this fragrance- it reminds me of the first day of fall, the first day that the air turns crisp and cool, and what a relief it is, after all the steam heat of summer....

I don't wear this, but it's my mom's signature fragrance. I have never smelled anyone else wearing it, but when I do, I'm immediately reminded of her and my childhood (late 80s-early 90s). It's...
