A white, gentle magnolia is the muse for this beautiful floral perfume created by Yves Rocher in 1983. Its intensive, intoxicating southern scent, apart from magnolia followed by apple notes at the very beginning, includes a whole range of white flowers: jasmine, tuberose, lily and gardenia. Patchouli, oakmoss, woody sandalwood and white cedar notes, vanilla and musk leave a trail. The production in France was stopped, unfortunately, but Magnolia produced in other countries with a licence can still be bought.

I have a small amount from original bottle made.
I dont detect magnolia flower on my skin ,yet denifetly i can say its classic. Reminds me of Knowing by Estee Lauder. But a light version if would exist. like L'eau de toilette Knowing.
Great mixed juice ,all ingredients together making a composition. not my style, long lasting.

I own a small bottle from back in time. It was perhaps a gift from a neighbour and at first I was not so happy about it because the bottle reminded me of Cacharel Anais Anais which I could not stand since the beginning. Silly girl I was! This one smells clean, simple and a good magnolia rendition, still perfumey but lovely and utterly feminine and got no pungent smell like Anais Anais that was so widespread around.
Old Yves Rocher Magnolia is relaxed yet knowing.
It is the smell of a feminine clean charme, but it is a dated scent. Not a bad thing in itself, rather nostalgic of times when women still smelled like flowers and not like bubble-gum.

This scent is the one of the scents of my youth. My mother used to wear this, and she gave me a bottle as as a present. The Yves Rocher shops nowadays don't sell it anymore. I only have a very small bottle left (a miniature) and I savour it (i.e. smell it one in a while, never use it).

Just bought it , at first spritz it was a bit sharp & reminded me of Anais Anais which I don't like at all !! but it setteled into something really "cleaner" as most people here would describe it... Very strong magnolia plus lots of oakmoss & no apples or vanilla at all ...Old school floral without any sweetness ..I love a bit of sweetness with my florals ,but this is a nice addition to my collection anyway , as it's so different from what we have now ...The bottle is sooooooo beautiful white ceramic & very well made ...I love a beautiful bottle can't deny
Update : I have tried it again and think I am really loving it , very unique :)
Another update : Loving it for the Summer (I live in a warm country ) clean , refreshing and still elegant ..MUCH better than Anais Anasis by Cacharel which I never loved its animalic notes ....

Wow! This was my very first perfume and first purchase from Yves Rocher back in 1983 or 1984. I was still in elementary grade school. I have great memories of owning this scent. All these years I could remember the white bottle, the light soft scent, but I couldn't remember the name. Nothing but happy memories.

I remember YR Magnolia as a feminine and soft white floral scent. I had a big bottle in my twenties that I enjoyed to the last drop. If I were to smell it again it would bring back happy memories.

I love this perfume. It's so feminine, sweet and summery. However it has no staying power. On me it lasts 2 hours, tops.

Pretty, nice, charming, feminine - these are the kind of words that spring to mind here.

It's the usual good-quality, well-crafted old style Rocher fragrance. I don't get much of particular notes, just a well-composed melange of white flowers, with maybe the jasmine slightly dominating. The drydown is mostly musk to me. No oakmoss, that's for sure.

The longevity is quite poor on me which is a surprise for a Yves Rocher composition. Usually the lasting power is spectacular from this house. Sillage is moderate.

You can see why these fragrances are no longer made. The presentation is irretrievably dated and mumsy. However, the juice is of high quality.

First I thought I'll buy Cacharel Anais Anais, but then I opted to buy Magnolia. To me they smell very alike, but Magnolia somehow smells "cleaner", if that makes any sense:) My Mom used to use it about 20 years ago, and I used to steel a little here and there:) I rememeber how much I liked it, and although my taste in parfumes changed a lot I am pretty sure I will still love this beauty once I receive it! Just ordered a 100ml, not many to find nowadays, so I thought I'd better grab one before they completely vanish...:/

OK, it actually managed to settle on the skin before vanishing into the unknown ( as opposed to Vie Privee that is definitely nothing but a ghost dissipating instantly into thin air ). It is a soapy floral, wearing which could actually be nice after a long bath, emerging all fresh and clean. BUT - the initial surge of floral powderness dries down to nothing, a faint soapy scent detected only with your nose buried tight in your skin and only for the first 15 minutes, after that - forget it. I got to give it to YR, it does have the loveliest bottle ever: so romantic, reminding me of vintage porcelain painted over flakons our grandmothers used to have.

It's a very clean, fresh floral scent. Definitely smells like something more popular in the 90's, and definitely reminiscent of the stuff my mom used to put on me when I was 4 (after all, scent is the strongest sense tied to memory).

Obviously, the strongest note in here is the magnolia. I do get some of the lily, tuberose, and jasmine... but it all mixes together to form this 90's era-like scent, if that makes any sense at all. Personally, I love it. I love clean soapy scents. It's something I'd splash on right after a shower on a warm day.

Soapy, peppery, clean white floral with a complex composition. I really, really like it - it's an instant mood uplifter!
It's very similar to Anais Anais, and I would say that they're close enough for me to not miss Magnolia, should I never find it again.

Magnolia reminds me of my most favourite fragrance Anais Anais, and feels almost the same, as in everytime i wore them, they made me feel like an Alabaster Greek Goddess in a crisp, gossamer white flowing gown with a bit of green gauze lattice-work. romance of Gods according to me :)

I recall getting a small bottle, just tad larger than your regular sample sizes, with my YR cosmetic order way back when.
This fragrance was pretty but too flowery-sweet for me. The name "magnolia" was right on, a very strong magnolia indeed. All I was getting on my skin was 80% magnolia + 20% vanilla. No real lasting power though.
I gifted the bottle to my friend and she loved it.

Well, Sherihan I do not know a perfume exactly the same as this one, but it is a 'cleaner' version of the perfume Anais Anais in the vintage formulation. It is like they cleaned AA from the animalic notes that went on too strong. Then you have somekind of Magnolia.
Magnolia is an extremely complex perfume that you wear like an aura, you cannot always see it, but it really imprints your mood and spirit!

It was my lovely Aysu that gifted me a big bottle of this perfume. I have been treasuring it ever since. I was able to buy one bottle of this gem later on and decided to offer that 2nd bottle to my sweetheart Persephone. It is like liquid gold to me, it is sheer heaven and one of the most beautiful perfumes ever. Thank you Aysu, your gift stayes with me always.
Love,

Was given this by a French family as a thank you gift for showing their son around the countryside in the states. I relished the combination pack, and used it sparingly. I'd love to get it added to my regular parfumes.

I had this in the 80s. Much too white for me, like Anais Anais and Lily of the Valley... a pity because I'm certain on others, the fragrance is lovely. But it did nothing for me. Too sweet, too strong.

One of YR's best fragrances. I wish it was still available. I remember it as being a soft, floral delicate scent. Hope YR makes it again.

If you are looking for a fragrance with pure light living magnolia, Magnolia by YR is not light floral.

This fragrance is created in the style of 1980-ties. Oily, fruity, intense heavy floral. Some perfumes of that time I can describe as mix of everything ;o)) When I was young, I didn't think so. This fragrance together with Creation by Ted Lapidus were my "light" florals ;o))

I like it.

Do they still make and sell this fragrance? Because the last time I sniffed it was probably in 1992 or so. A long time ago anyway! Brings back memories from my teenage years :)
