Fragrance Review: Guerlain's L'instant Magic

Fragrance Review: Guerlain's L'instant Magic

Last weekend I had to kill some time at the airport, so I spent almost an hour checking out holiday gift sets and fragrances at the duty-free beauty shop. L’instant Magic by Guerlain isn't totally brand new—it launched in September—but as soon as I smelled it, I was really taken in by its pleasant and warm subtlety.

It's something that I immediately thought would be a great gift for a young woman as well as someone older who is looking for a lighter woody and floral scent.

Apparently it's been getting confused a lot for its predecessor, L'Instant fragrance. This version is much softer than the strong and spicy original. Also, the bottles are slightly different — the L'instant Magic base and top are tinted black, while the original bottle is all pink.

L'instant Magic is made from bergamot, rose, freesia, sandalwood, cedar almond accord and musk. It's available in a 1.7 oz EDP for $74, a 2.7 oz EDP for $100, a .25 oz perfume for $115 and in a scented body lotion for $50.

I fell in love with it too, after receiving a little miniature tester the parfumerie ladies always add to my bag when I go shopping for make-up and parfum.

Ooh, this sounds perfect for me! Thank you so much! I've decided that what I've been wearing at the moment's a little bit too strong...so I'll check L'instant out the next time I'm in Myer :D
