Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum Review-
Hey my lovelies!
You know the sort of fragrance for which you stop people in the street (I literally did) because of something delicious wafting to your nose without knowing the name of which you cannot sleep peacefully? Happens to me all the time being a perfume maniac 😛 I had gone to get my baby vaccinated & literally ran after a lady outside the clinic to ask her the perfume she was wearing which of course, turned out to be this 😀 I came back home, placed the order & finished this in 3 months 😐 (my perfumes usually last 3 years seeing that I have multiple & always rotate). So you do understand how special this is. Read on!
What Lancome Says-
La Vie est Belle is Lancôme’s best selling feminine fragrance that captures the luminosity of Magnolia Essence. It is inspired by the idea of natural and simple beauty, joy and pleasure in small things. Incarnated by Julia Roberts, this gourmand yet elegant composition is a universal declaration to the beauty of life. A unique olfactory signature perfume scent created by three of France’s leading perfumers.
Iris is the key ingredient of this floral Eau de Parfum, surrounded by orange blossoms and jasmine in the heart.
For a lighter scent, why not try La Vie Est Belle Eau De Toilette.
Share happiness with this majestic reinterpretation of a signature fragrance that now captures the luminosity of Magnolia Essence. The resplendent bottle, entitled “”le sourire de cristal”” (the “”crystal smile””) evokes the rounded imprint of a smile at the heart of the crystal square.
The finishing touch of refinement: a pearlescent grey organza ribbon is tied around its neck, forming the twin wings of freedom.

My take on the Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum-
The packaging is classy & lovely with a transparent crystal bottle & a matching crystal cap with a satin grey ribbon tied around the neck like a pair of wings. I love how even the empty bottle looks ^_^
At first sniff, I get the fresh, summery citrus burst of the pear & blackberry mingled with one of my favorite notes of all time- orange blossom ^_^ The combination is enough to earn you a truckload of compliments. The notes slowly settle down to iris & patchouli which blend in perfectly to lend sweet but not overwhelming notes to the perfume. The scent is perfectly balanced & can be worn by anybody, any age, any gender. It’s a beautiful, classic happy scent.
The lasting power is simply amazing, both on skin & on clothes & my entire wardrobe smells fresh & lovely if I have sprayed my jacket before going out 🙂 My skin retains the scent for hours & hours even the next day.
Pros of the Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum:
1> Beautiful crystal bottle with a grey satin ribbon.
2> Soft, fresh yet floral beautifully balanced fragrance for anyone & everyone.
3> Amazing lasting power both on skin & clothes.
4> Not at all cloying.
Cons of the Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum:
Unavailability in India 😡
My Rating: 5/5!
Do I recommend the Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum?
Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum is a scent I simply kept on wearing wherever I went out since the last 3-4 months & completely used it up which is totally unheard of me since I have a ton of perfumes & keep them all on rotation. Do get a whiff of this beauty wherever you can & grab a bottle I definitely recommend!! I am ordering a new bottle at this moment ^_^
