Lancôme will introduce Miracle Forever in Europe in September, in the United States in 2007. The fragrance is a "foody oriental" meant to attract a younger consumer to the Miracle line:
The scent, orchestrated by IFF star perfumers Dominique Ropion and Olivier Polge, in coordination with Lancôme fragrance creative director Pauline Zanoni, was built around three predominant notes: almond flower nectar, blackcurrant and star anis, not frequently used in women's fragrance, Polge explained.

Lancome Miracle Forever is an Eau de Parfum, and is available in 50 and 75 ml, and in Shower Gel and Perfumed Body Lotion.
