Magic Nights by Marilyn Miglin
The mini I am sampling is an Eau de Parfum. I picked up this 11ml. splash locally along with 5 others in a Miglin set. They were all new and from what I can smell, completely intact and well kept. I can't say the "strength" is exactly in keeping of EDP's I normally encounter, but that may be me splitting hairs. The overall aroma is surprisingly good, feminine and fresh. It's not as spicy as I had anticipated and that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Magic Nights seems to be tuned for low impact, but it's still capable of making an impression. This is a floriental, with an emphasis on the floral components.
The floral quality of Magic Nights is the essence of the scent. The lack of presence from Amber and Vanilla in the base was a bit disappointing for me, but the totality is still acceptable. It could have been a very pleasant and fitting send off, but it simply doesn't transpire on my skin after multiple wearings. As such, Magic Nights feels "unfinished" and seems content to display its heart for the life of the scent.
Sillage is average with longevity approximately 3-4 hours, depending upon how heavily one applies it. Positive-Neutral rating from Aromi and a strong recommendation to sample before purchase.
