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

      I love this perfume! It smells gorgeous and people give me compliments when I wear it! It lasts all day, and is perfect to wear to any occasion in my opinion. It is on the expensive side, but I also think it is worth it!

      My most complimented fragrance!

      Comments about Lancôme La vie est belle Eau de Parfum:

      This has been one of my favorite fragrances since the day it was released. I'm a perfume fanatic and probably own between 40 and 50 different fragrances. But I still wear this one frequently enough that I'm on my 4th 3.4 oz bottle. And of everything in my collection - this one gets the most compliments from strangers by a long shot. It's sweet, spicy, and feminine, and it lasts for a long time. Sort of a gourmand with a spicy patchouli drydown. I prefer to wear it in the fall and winter; it's a nice warm scent that makes me feel good when it's cold out.

          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!

        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.

      • Q:

        There are such mixed reviews - my question is - is this scent very strong when first applied then mellows? I want a fragrance that holds its scent but not because its overwhelming.
