La Vie Est Belle ~ Lancome

If you're a big gourmand perfume lover, La Vie Est Belle by the french fragrance house, Lancome should be on your top fragrance list to own.


Inspired by joy, happiness & taking pleasure in all the little things, Julia Roberts is the face behind the perfume campaign. A perfect choice as she does exudes a warm and charming aura. La Vie Est Belle is also inspired by natural and simplistic beauty which can be seen from the minimalist design of the bottle. It has a stunning modern design and I do love the sleek look of it.



La Vie Est Belle EDP 4ml

Top Notes : Blackcurrant & Pear
Middle Notes : Iris, Jasmine & Orange Blossom
Base Notes : Patchouli, Tonka bean, Vanilla, Praline.

On my skin, it opens up with a burst of blackcurrant & pear, before it starts to blend into the floral scent of iris, jasmine and orange blossom.The fruity floral notes last for hours before it starts to mellow into the warm, powdery scent of patchouli, tonka bean, vanilla and praline. This is a perfume where I could actually detect all the notes, which is a rarity in my previous experience.


For those who love sweet perfume scent, this should be right up your alley, as it stays sweet throughout the day I wore it. On my skin, the perfume last from the morning I dab it on till the time I took a shower. On my cardigan, the scent stays on longer and I could still smell a whiff of it's delicious scent even after laundry. This is a scent that has a strong silage, people could actually smell you from across the room, a few dabs of this is all I need to smell good the whole day, though I do avoid using this on days I wish to stay incognito, lol. For those who purchase the bottle spray, 1 or 2 spritz is all you need as it will definitely suffocate people around you especially those with a delicate nose.


Overall, I really do love this scent. It has a cheerful, uplifting vibe to it. Sweet but elegant. I find it to be suitable for day and night wear. It's a crowd favourite and children seems to love this scent as it does smell really sweet & delicious. If you're looking for a perfume that last hours and hours and hours....do try this and be amazed!
