Reviews of Magic in the Air

There is one review of Magic in the Air.
Top Notes: Persimmon, Winter Water Lily, White Iris, Pear Blossom.

Heart Notes: Almond Blossom, Coconut Cream, Jasmine.

Base Notes: Vanilla, Sandalwood, Musk.

Magic in the Air, released in 2016, is a bit of chameleon. It starts off purely floral, but as it develops, it turns into a quite sweet gourmand and loses most of its floral character altogether, which in this case is a good thing for me. Usually, top notes are designed to immediately seduce, but I find the top notes here rather off-putting. It may be the combination of persimmon and water lily that bothers me. I am not really sure, but the top notes seem a bit piercing yet watery to my nose and do not seduce at all. I find myself suffering through them until the heart begins to develop.

Once the top notes disappear, the fragrance begins to take on its gourmand character and becomes much less floral and far more sweet and gooey as it were. Eventually, it settles into a quite sweet gourmand fragrance with pronounced notes of sweet coconut and vanilla. Coconut has always been a difficult note for me, but here its foodie character is tempered by the almond blossom and jasmine just enough to make it bearable. Gourmand lovers will surely enjoy this fragrance. Those who are not keen on gourmands will surely take a pass on this fragrance.

I own the shower gel, body spray, and body cream. As with a few of the other B&BW fragrances, the body creme is much better than both the shower gel, which is mainly floral, and the body spray which is fairly light, floral, and finally gourmand. The body creme has outstanding longevity. I get more than sixteen hours from the body spray-body creme combo. The body creme persists even after I have washed my hands.

I enjoy this fragrance some days more than others. I find I have to be in the mood to wear it because of the top notes. I think Magic in the Air wears better in cool to cold weather. In the heat and humidity of Summer, it can feel a bit too sweet and cloying, much like other very foodie offerings from B&BW, e.g. Golden Pear and Brown Sugar, and Vanilla Bean Noel. All three of these fragrances are unrelentingly sweet gourmands. I own all three, but it is highly unlikely I would purchase any of them again. I like some gourmands very much, but these three are all too foodie for me personally.

Magic in the Air is not a bad fragrance, but because of the top notes and the way it develops on my skin, I must give it a qualified thumbs up. Buy it only if the listed notes appeal to you and only if you are a gourmand lover. I find the bottle design quite attractive, though. B&BW seems to make more of an effort with packaging than many other brands do, and this bottle is pretty and very appealing to the eye. It says "pick me up and spray me!"

Fragrance: 5/10
Projection: 7/10
Sillage: 7/10
Longevity: 10/10 for the body creme, 6/10 for the body spray.
