On my skin this is a bergamot-almond scent straight from the beginning, with the focus being on the almond. A pleasant almond, unidimensional and straight without any facets or change over time.

In the drydown a white musky impression is added, which blends in quite nicely with the rest but stays in the background.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and an excellent eleven hours of longevity on my skin.

This is quite a pleasant scent for warmer autumn days, whose strong point consists of the very good performance. Its drawback is the somewhat synthetic nature of the notes, as well as the fact that apart form the almond the rest is ultra-generic. 2.75/5

Banal and useless

Pale powdery unoriginal mediocrity at its best.

Pros: Any
Cons: Boring synthetic fruity/floral almondy powder."

l'Instant Magic has a pleasant and somewhat generic cosmetic smell. It doesn't really smell like a perfume, but like a luxurious body cream. This makes it intimate and suggestive of bare skin and sensual beauty habits.

I have trouble deciding between a neutral or thumbs up, but I will go for thumbs up since it's not bad at all and it can be pretty sexy.

Hmm, wanted to correct my first review,
but it got erased instead ...

Delish ... I love it!

Sweet light fragrance with an almond and baby powder dry down. Wears very close to the skin.

What is not to love about this perfume? From its fresh fruity-peppy start to its powdery-musky ending, it's a masterpiece on what I consider a "fragile beauty" perfume is, and should be.

It's quite unisex that I've gotten away wearing it and have it misidentified by women as a men's scent.

I'm surprised by all of the negative reviews, but I suppose chacun son gout.
