La vie est Belle, French for "life is beautiful," is a statement on the world around us, infused with meaning, with both a conscience and a soul. Le vie est Belle is for the woman who lives in the present, who is filled with honesty, truth and gratitude, and who is free of social constraint, to emblazon her own unique path.

La vie est Belle represents a choice-the choice to create your own path to happiness. La vie est Belle is the fragrance of joyful femininity that makes life more beautiful. Made with the most precious natural ingredients, La vie est Belle entwines the elegance of iris with the strength of patchouli and the sweetness of praline. Floral notes of sambac, jasmine and tunisian orange blossom are added in the form of sublime absolutes.

In 1949, Georges Delhomme set out to create a bottle to capture the aura of a charismatic woman who radiates that indefinable "je ne sais quoi." After many sketches, Delhomme finally struck the quintessence: the grace of a smile somehow cut into glass. This design, called The Crystal Smile, would long remain in the Lancôme archives. Now, 63 years later, Lancôme reinterprets the design, creating the rounded imprint of a smile at the heart of a crystal square. The finishing touch of refinement is a pearlescent grey organza ribbon tied at the neck, forming twin wings of freedom.

    Comments about Lancôme La vie est Belle Eau de Parfum:

    I'd never been a huge perfume user until I got this one. I'm very sensitive to smells (I can get headaches) but this does not give me headaches whatsoever. I only use one pump and that lasts all day. I also have the roller ball for when I want to refresh, but most of the time the perfume lasts all day. I get a ton of compliments and I can't recommend this enough. If you're debating whether or not to get it, just get it. You won't regret it!

    Comments about Lancôme La vie est Belle Eau de Parfum:

    I Am Not A Big Fan Of Changing Parfums. When I Find One I Like, I Usually Stay With It For A Long Time. When I Wear La Vie est Belle, The Compliment Start Flowing.........I Am A 58 Year Old Female. I Usually Only Keep One Or Two Different Parfums. I Like To Use Them And Make Sure They Never Last A Long Time Where The Smell Will Get Stiff Or Old. This One The Price Is A Little More, But In My Opinion It Is Well Worth It. I Don't Know Anyone Who Doesn't Like To Be Told, "Wow, What Are You Wearing, It Smells Wonderful". I Only Have One Negative With Ultra Regarding This Parfum. The Home Shopping Network Has It In A "Purse" Size Spray, Plus You Get 3 (larger) Refills For $88.00. I Hope Ultra Will Start Carring The Purse Size. It Is A Great Product With A Great Price For What You Get. Okay......Ultra!!!!! Try To Get It For Your Customers, A Purse Size Is Great For Every Woman!!!!

      I have been wearing this Lancôme purfume for as long as I can remember. It's definitely my signature. I have never loved any other purfume more. I feel is soft and subtle, not overpowering and gets you great compliments.
