Most Helpful Positive Review My all time favorite
This is the very first scent that I have ever purchased without trying it first. It was a leap of faith worth taking and I love this perfume. I truly enjoy perfume and have tried many different perfumes from many different categories and have found it very hard to settle on one that I really adore. I used to have a signature fragrance which I grew out of and I have been searching for a replacement for years now. La Vie Est Belle stands out as the most outstanding perfume I have tried, my favorite all time scent. This is the very first scent I have felt compelled to write a review about. It is a deep scent with many layers, so unique if you are one who notices the beautiful details in life. I have never smelled a perfume that subtly changed so much over the hours of wearing it. It has many different facets between hints of flowers, hints of fruit, hints of patchouli with the base being vanilla which continues throughout. The sweetness of praline and tonka bean just assist the vanilla scent but do not overpower the fragrance because the other notes balance the sweet base. Vanilla is definitely the main contributor to this scent. Yet it is not a sickeningly sweet scent- the vanilla that continues throughout is gentle and soft and the other notes ease the sweetness, making it very well balanced. It is not too sweet and the gourmand qualities are far from overpowering. This is the most delicate use of gourmand- made to increase the warmth of the scent, but not to overpower it. This scent blends with your skin to make it unique to you and does not simply sit on the surface. Yet this scent has staying power and it's wonderful to smell the multidimensional changes of the various notes over the hours. I cannot ever picture getting bored with this scent. It is complex and has such a unique composition of notes which are subtly detectable through the hours of wearing it, making this perfume completely different from any other perfume I've ever worn. If you are someone who notices the small but beautiful things in life, you will be able to detect the unique and subtle changes in the scent over the 10+ hours of wear you will get out of this perfume. I feel like a woman with a beautiful warm sensual scent to complement my radiant smile when wearing this perfume... and yes this scent does make me smile. I have never had a perfume that actually brought a smile to my face before, but this one does. I feel free, happy and beautiful when wearing it, enhancing my love for life. Indeed the saying "Life Is Beautiful" really does describe this fragrance. The bottle too. All of the marketing is completely on track with what is in the bottle. Beautiful overall, truly beautiful. Thanks to Lancome and the three master perfumers who have highlighted the beauty of each of the special notes in this perfume and reminded us of the gift of scent. What a stunning reminder of the beauty of the small things in life- those things which really make life even more beautiful. La vie est belle!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Formula Changed - Highly Dissapointed
Extremely loyal Lancôme customer that has been using this perfume for 10+ years and new, weaker formula is enough to make me change perfumes for good. You cannot justify spending a high dollar amount for this product when the staying power and weaker ingredients do not add up to the older scent. Extremely disappointed as this perfume was my favorite. Lancôme … I beg you to do better for your loyal customers.

I guess my tastes have changed…
lxoxo from CA
It's a spicy floral. It doesn't have enough sweetness for me anymore. I pick up a lot of patchouli, yearning for more of the vanilla note. There isn't a change in formula, just a change in personal taste. It wears well, though and smells great on many.
DoctorG from Shreveport
This is my third time purchasing this fragrance from three different places. I have been wearing it for over two years. It's light enough to wear in the summer time. But really great in the winter'
My mom loved it

This year, I've been trying to up my perfume game & this perfume did just that. This scent is very unique, sweet, & quite fancy to say the least. All in all it's a good quality perfume & I would recommend this product to a friend.

Velveeta from Pelham, Alabama
I love this parfum and have people ask what I am wearing as we pass. It is beautiful but not overwhelming. This is the only fragrance I wear. Too many are overwhelming.
It's such a radiant smell! I love it!!

Shaina from Brooklyn
It's a nice scent but it reminds me of a grandma. I returned it and got the Marc Jacobs intense instead!
Didn't like it
Linds from Florida
I ended up returning this. I wanted to love it since it is so popular but there was something about this fragrance that I did not like. I can't quite put my finger on what it was. To each their own I guess.
Jen from Florida
This is a gorgeous fragrance. I love sweet scents and this doesn't disappoint.
Pris from CA
Smells warm and powdery with hints of floral. A little too old for me being 23. It does smell good but just not my cup of tea. I prefer fresher/cleaner scents
Bibs from Houston tx
Just amazing my advice please use its a little it will stay longed for hours
Airam from Illinois
This perfume smelled really strong and nothing like others i have bought.i just couldn't stand the smell of the perfume it made my head hurt :(
smells different on everyone
love it from Oregon
Lots of compliments, ppl always ask me what it is. I spray on wrists and rub them together then pat wrists on neck. Too much of any purfume will make it smell and and it smells differently on clothing then it does on skin. I had my blood drawn and girl said she has smelled it before but liked how it smelled on me. Ur skin makes it unique
