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 have bought La vie est belle few month ago and fell in love with its scent so deeply that no other perfume cannot ever take its place. I have enjoyed every drop of this perfume, it's personality is expressed with life and laughter, of love beyond measure and beauty beyond description. Nothing compares with it!

    My mother loved this.

    Comments about Lancôme La vie est Belle Eau de Parfum:

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my mother. She absolutely loves this scent and it smells wonderful on her. It's a classy ladylike smell. Slightly sweet, but not too much. It's one of the few scents that does not burn my nose or come across in an overpowering way. So glad I spent the money for Mom's gift.

        Comments about Lancôme La vie est Belle Eau de Parfum:

        This scent was too overpowering and loud.The smell made me sick after just applying a dabble on my wrist. I thought I would try it due to the high ratings it received and was highly disappointed. I believe if I can smell my perfume then it is too overpowering. This just didn't go with my chemistry but for others it maybe perfect.

        I received a product sample of this perfume and it smells amazing. Lightly floral, sort of sultry/musky, and it will stay with you all day.

          Gorgeous bottle but not sooo much on the fragrance

          Comments about Lancôme La vie est Belle Eau de Parfum:

          Wow on the bottle design but not so much on the smell. Way too floral. The fragrance keeps developing and it seams to me a lily note dominates this scent. I know lots of women love this but it IS NOT for me. Still waiting for a scent I like from Lancome. LOVE THE DESIGN of the bottle.

            • 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.
