Fragrance Review

Introduced in 2007 as a flanker to the popular L’Instant de , this feminine fragrance was named L’Instant Magic and is the result of the efforts developed by perfumers and . Composed in antithesis with its predecessor, which was characterized as a luxurious oriental floral, this new re-interpretation comes as a soft and tender fragrance, aimed at a younger audience.

From the official website, I selected the following quote in which the fragrance appears as “The instant when a dream becomes suddenly possible.” On the occasion of testing L’Instant Magic, assisted by a precious help (my wife, as you expected!), I discovered an interesting combination of top, heart and base notes that lead to “a mist that caresses with a trail of flowers on a bed of wood and musk” (also excerpted from the above mentioned source).

The opening in L’Instant Magic is represented by bergamot, followed almost immediately by a musky heart, the effect of a blend between rose and freesia. After a couple of hours, the dry down reveals its woody character, in a combination of , white musk, cedar and almond.

The bottle that holds L’Instant Magic is a replica of its original from 2003, except this time the base and superior surface of the stopper were painted black. In the advertising video is featured the English actress in a fantastic story that is relevant for the magic facet of this perfume. Overall, L’Instant Magic is a refined perfume for a woman with class.
