What Does Magnolia Smell Like? The magnolia flower provides a deep citrus aroma of candied lemon that is sweet, fresh, and tart-like with spicy and musky undertones. When used in fragrance, magnolia produces a sweet floral aroma of light spiced lemon.

1. Lancôme – Magnolia Rosae

Lancôme Magnolia Rosae

Review

Lancôme Magnolia Rosae Eau de Parfum is an intoxicating combination of magnolia, rose and musk that is both feminine and beautiful. Perfumer Mathilde Bijaoui created this delightful fragrance in 2109 and was inspired by her childhood memories of her grandparents spectacular magnolia tree.

Magnolia Rosae opens with the sweet and lemony floral scent of magnolia that is entwined with soft, delicate, almost powdery rose. A lightly spiced musky base adds a sense of depth and mystery to this magnolia adventure. Not too heavy, not too light, this fragrance is absolutely beautiful.

As for when to wear, Magnolia Rosae is an enchanting spring/summer fragrance that can be worn day or night. This versatile fragrance suits both casual daytime-wear, elegant evening-wear, and everything in-between!

As for performance, you can expect 6+ hours of longevity with medium sillage and projection. The magnolia note lasts exceptionally well.

Presented in a charming sharp-edged glass bottle with engraved magnolia branches and flowers on the back that can be viewed through the front of the bottle. Completed with a gold cap. Lancôme really knows how to present a fragrance.

Overall, Lancôme Magnolia Rosae is a winning combination of magnolia and rose that oozes class. Highly recommended.

2. Acqua di Parma – Magnolia Nobile

Acqua di Parma - Magnolia Nobile

Review

Italian perfumers Acqua di Parma seem to have a knack of creating attention-grabbing floral fragrances. Magnolia Nobile Eau de Parfum is a glamorous and delicate white floral fragrance that seems crafted from pure petals. Antoine Maisondieu is the nose behind this fragrance that was launched in 2009.

A bright opening of crisp lemon and bergamot are met with a bouquet of white florals. Sweet jasmine is most noticeable initially but is soon overtaken by the zesty-sweetness of magnolia. Rose and tuberose are subtly present and add a powdery vibe. Upon dry-down, vanilla and woody notes creep in nicely to smooth the edges of this delightful fragrance. Personally could not detect patchouli.

As for when to wear, Magnolia Nobile is a fresh, sunny floral fragrance that is perfect for spring/summer, especially summer afternoon garden parties and al-fresco lunches.

As for performance, you can expect 6+ hours of longevity with excellent sillage and projection.

Presented in a striking, almost art-deco style bottle with a beautiful yellow glow and completed with a gold-coloured label and matching gold cap. A classy addition to your perfume table.

Overall, Acqua di Parma Magnolia Nobile is a refined and sophisticated magnolia focused fragrance that is both luxurious and captivating.

Top Notes:

3. Bvlgari – Magnolia Sensuel

Bvlgari - Magnolia Sensuel

Review

Magnolia Sensuel of the Bvlgari Splendida range is exactly that, a sensual and somewhat decadent magnolia focused white-floral affair that delights the senses. The nose behind the fragrance which was released in 2018 is Jacques Cavallier.

Opens with a delicious wave of juicy orange combines with sweet soapy notes of orange blossom—a vibrant, striking heart of lemony tart-like magnolia blooms with sweet and seductive jasmine. Once fully settled, a base of exotic musk with a nip of vanilla and earth patchouli adds a comforting sense of refinement.

As for when to wear, although Bvlgari Splendida Magnolia Sensuel is ideal for spring/summer late afternoon and evenings. The rather glamorous collection of base notes are equally well suited for autumn/winter daytime. Think of chilly strolls and afternoon lunches by the fire in a quiet, cosy pub.

As for performance, you can expect 5+ hours of longevity with reasonable sillage and projection.

Presented in true Bvlgari style, a classy deep burgundy bottle with gold neck and cab. Very classy indeed.

Overall, Magnolia Sensuel is a wonderfully seductive magnolia elixer which is luxurious, refined and compliment generating. Well worth at least grabbing a sample.

Tangerine, Orange Blossom

4. Guerlain – L’Instant de Guerlain

Guerlain - L'Instant de Guerlain

Review

L’Instant de Guerlain was released in 2003 and is a beautiful combination of refreshing citrus, fragrant magnolia and smooth honey.

The opening is fresh with clean notes of bergamot and orange. A blooming heart of lemon-scented magnolia and buttery ylang-ylang mingle with touches of honey and powder. Sweet vanilla and warming amber and musk provide an attractive base. Truly stunning.

L’Instant de Guerlain is a fragrance for cooler months of spring, autumn and winter. Perfect for daytime or evening wear.

Thanks to the magnificent performance of the magnolia and vanilla, this fragrance is very long-lasting at 5+ hours on the skin with decent sillage and projection.

Presented in one of the most beautiful bottles on the market. L’Instant sits gracefully within a bell-shaped bottle that is flanked by a glass bezel.

Overall, L’Instant de Guerlain is an incredibly pretty feminine fragrance. Not too sweet, not too floral, just perfect. Sounds a bit like Goldilocks choosing her breakfast!

5. Clive Christian – VIII Rococo Magnolia

Clive Christian - VIII Rococo Magnolia

Review

VIII Rococo Magnolia is a delightful feminine floral fragrance that was launched in 2017. The nose behind this rather grown-up Clive Christian fragrance is Angela Stavrevska.

A citrus opening of orange and bergamot are sweetened by fruity cassis. Soon, a heart of soft powdery rose and lemon-tart magnolia take centre-stage for an incredibly beautiful floral fanfare. Upon dry-down, woody notes and lightly damp moss create a sense of sophistication. Cinnamon dances in and out for a touch of sweet spice.

As for when to wear, VIII Rococo Magnolia is ideal for spring, summer and autumn. This is an extremely classy daytime feminine scent, so perfect for weddings, lunches and other formal engagements.

As for performance, you can expect 8+ hours of longevity with excellent sillage and projection. You get what you pay for.

Presented in a striking black bottle with red Clive Christian wording and gold lettering. The crowned cap completed the look of high-class opulence.

Overall, Two words can sum up VIII Rococo Magnolia by Clive Christian; Utterly Gorgeous. A classy combination of magnolia and rose is blended to perfection with citrus, woods and herbs.
