My Full Review

Before we get into my personal Review, let’s see what Lancôme has to lớn say about the perfume: “La vie est belle”, a French expression meaning “Life is beautiful”; the manifeskhổng lồ of a new era. Universal yet personal, Lancôme’s femininity is a choice embraced by women, not an imposed standard. The choice to lớn live sầu one’s life and fill it with beauty. Your own way. It introduces a new olfactory story, the first ever iris gourm&. The juice is made with the most precious natural ingredients, a modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance with a twist of gourm&.

La Vie Est Belle opens up with its fruity notes, taking center stage. Mainly, I pick up on the tart và somewhat sour blackberry note, which is joined by pear. When paired together (along with the other notes), it puts on a sweet, somewhat grape-like smell at first. Like, a candied grape scent, just more tart in the opening.

A few minutes after the initial spray, the patchouli begins khổng lồ draw away some of the energy of the fruity ingredients. With the iris note (plus a touch of jasmine), you vị get a more classic floral aroma in there.

Yet, it still remains a fruity gourm&, at this stage. This perfume gets compared to Flowerbomb a lot, & I can smell the similarities, but there’s less patchouli in La Vie.

This is really when the shift begins to occur, in this fragrance. The praline/vanilla/patchouli triumvirate, gains a svào foothold, and the blackberry note is just floating along the periphery of the aroma.

Initially, the patchouli is the strongest, then it is the praline/vanilla set. They become slightly stronger than the patchouli, the rest of the wear.

La Vie Est Belle isn’t a super complicated fragrance, but it does have sầu a nice little lifecycle of development.

Sillage, Longevity, & Versatility

The sillage isn’t huge, but it can fill a room, if over sprayed. You don’t need to go heavy on the trigger, for the scent khổng lồ project itself. In fact, it’ll probably make for an unpleasant wear.

The performance is great, in terms of how long it’ll go for, on the skin. You will definitely get a full workday, at least, possibly into lớn the double digit hours depending on the climate. 7.5 or 8 hours mostly, with some extra time, sometimes.

Is this a versatile fragrance? Yes. There’s a reason it is a best seller, La Vie Est Belle is a daily wear for a ton of women, out there. It is pretty và pleasant. Appropriate for the office, school, casual functions, formal wear, etc.

This is more of a cold khổng lồ moderate temperature wear. Mostly, autumn through mid-spring. When it gets hot, go with another option.

Is this a sexy perfume? Ehh, I don’t know that I’d call it ‘sexy’, it’s appealing. It’s attractive, but it doesn’t drive me wild. Though, I vày enjoy smelling this fragrance on a woman.

Overall Impression of La Vie Est Belle

Do I like La Vie Est Belle? I vị. I still think that this is a very good option for women looking for an all around daily wear. Yes, it is pretty commonplace. But, so what? It works.

The blackberry opening, while tart, is quite awesome. Some people don’t care for it, but it is a highlight for me. The dry down gets warmer & sweeter, with enough patchouli, khổng lồ keep it all in balance.

Add to that, the performance is worth the price of admission. It is svào and lasts for a long time, so, it’s actually not a bad value proposition for what you actually get.

La Vie Est Belle has been a massive sầu hit và will continue to lớn be so. It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but seems to lớn attract a lot of women to lớn wear it. I would recommkết thúc giving it a shot.
