Previously I had tried a sample of Magnifique by Lancome and really liked the scent. I didn't end up buying a bottle but I did buy some of the shower gel which I've now used unfortunately but really liked it.
Lancome are a very well known brand and I in my opinion produce good quality products. According to an article I read Lancome began in 1935 and in that same year launched their first 5 fragrances at World's Fair in Brussels.
Lancome's tag line for the whole Magnifique range is, You are Unique, you are Magnifique. According to their website they market the fragrance as such, "For the first time, Lancôme is interpreting the colour red, from bottle to fragrance. This intense and deep colour is a symbol of passion and expresses an audacious woman. The fragrance is a perfect illustration of this ultra-femininity: rose is set alight by saffron and nagarmotâ."
The shower gel is part of their bath section. They call it a shower perfume caress. Upon application of this MAGNIFIQUE Shower Perfume Caress, your body is delicately wrapped with its audacious scent. The smell is lovely and was the reason why I decided to buy the shower gel after testing the perfume sample. The smell to me is quite sweet, even though it has a rose fragrance I would not say that this is the over lying fragrance, it is not like rosewater or anything like that. It is not overly flowerly, I would describe it as being heavier that that but fresh at the same time. I use this in the shower and I find the gel lathers up well. I think it also lasts on my skin for quite a long time too. I use it first thing in the morning and can smell it later in the day too.
The bottle is quite eye-catching and vibrant. It is a deep red colour and in a cylinder shape. The top is a chrome colour.
A 200ml costs £24 which I think is a little on the expensive side but in keeping with fragrance prices as a whole. This was definitely a treat purchase and I did try to use this sparingly in the shower. It lasted for quite a few weeks but obviously there are cheaper shower gels you can buy but for a bit of luxury now and again it's really nice.
