Lancome Miracle EDP Perfume Review

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

If there is one thing we should remember about the early 2000s and fragrance, it should be: it was all about the pink. Miracle is a pink perfume, but in comparison to all of the cupcake fodder that followed, Miracle isn’t sweet. Why did I remember it as so? Oh, because the juice is literally pink and I’ve been brainwashed to believe that all “pink” perfumes are sickly sweet. So, here I am. Trying Miracle over a decade after its initial release and here’s what I think:

Miracle opens up as a gingery magnolia. And then, BAM, I get black pepper. It’s spicy and well, pink. Way more spicy than I ever remember. Miracle is a spicy pink floral. I get the lychee candy after the pepper settles. Miracle smells like Japanese lychee candy with generic “pink” florals, a mix of magnolia, freesia, and a musky rose. This is some girly stuff. But, the base of Miracle keeps it “mature” with a warm musky amber. If this was truly “girly” stuff, then the base would be “cupcake musk” or something like that, wouldn’t it? Miracle lacks sweetness. It’s a more mature pink floral. It’s like a grown woman that is comfortable carrying around a Hello Kitty compact. I like those ladies.

Notes listed include lychee, freesia, magnolia, ginger, pepper, musk, amber, and jasmine. PERFUMER – Alberto Morillas

Give Miracle a try if you want a longer lasting pink floral or if you like girly florals like Clarins Par Amour Toujours, The Body Shop Lychee Blossom, Dior Addict II, Coach Poppy Flower, Burberry Brit Sheer, Ralph Lauren Romance, and/or YSL Young Sexy Lovely.

Miracle is really long wearing. One spray and I can smell it all day because of the long-lasting, synthetic amber-musk base (that isn’t masculine at all). When I think about it, Miracle shouldn’t be “pink” but more of a “rouge” because it’s so warm.

Sizes of Miracle vary with prices ranging from $57-$77. It is available at Nordstrom and Macy’s. It can also be found at discounters like

Victoria’s Final EauPINION – There are so many “pink” juices out there. It’s been a decade of “pink”, I feel many people are sick of them, me included. My favorite pink fruity-floral is Clarins Amour Toujours. That being said, I never wear it. Miracle isn’t bad, but it isn’t very memorable. But, I must admit that I’m happy that the base isn’t “cupcake” accord.

  1. I disagree on the memorability part: I haven’t worn it in years and still I can imagine how it smells and for my nose it is very distinctive. I’m not arguing that it’s good or worthy (as I said, I do not wear or want to wear it anymore) but I think its shrieking pinkness is unique.

    1. I didn’t wear it, so I didn’t really have experience with it. For some reason, I remember it being sweet and sugary. It isn’t at all.

      Yes, it’s shrieking pink, but spicy! I was surprised I didn’t remember it that way.
