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.

Fragrance Notes:
  • Top: Iris
  • Heart: Patchouli
  • Base: Gourmand

"La Vie est Belle" is my signature fragrance!

By Auburn Athena

from SoCal

Verified Buyer

Comments about Lancôme La vie est belle Eau de Parfum:

This fragrance is what I've found to be my signature fragrance! My mother's signature fragrance is Chanel #5 and I found it hard to find a fragrance that equates to Chanel #5 and have respect to new generation of women who are independent and strong, yet still feminine and fragile. Thanks to LVEB for conveying such complexity to 21st century USA!

  • Q:

    Could you tell me the difference in the original le vie est belle and le vie est belle legere? Is the legere a softer scent?
    Asked on 2/15/2018 by MSScarllettRN from Daphne,AL

    • Brand Expert

      A:

      Hi there! We are so happy to see you are interested in our La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum. Our Legere version is lighter yet equally chic and delightful as the classic Eau de Parfum. Iris becomes the backbone of the fragrance, Patchouli gives strength and depth, and sweet gourmand adds a burst of unexpected radiance. We hope you love it as much as we do!

  • Q:

    LANCŌME LA VIE EST BELLE LEGERE PARFUM IS MY FAVORITE OF THE LA VIE EST BELLE FRAGRANCES NOW. TO ME IT IS SOFTER AND LIGHTER. OTHER THAN THAT, COULD YOU TELL ME WHAT FORMULATION DIFFERENCE THERE IS BETWEEN THE ORIGINAL AND THIS. I ALSO NOTICED THE COLOR IS MORE APRICOT THAN PINK.
