Most Helpful Positive Review So happy I tried this fragrance!
La Vie est belle Soleil Cristal. "Life is Beautiful" and it feels like it when you are wearing this fragrance. I received this complimentary fragrance and I'm in love. First, let's talk about packaging. The packaging it's just beautiful with reflective colors, but in a subtle manner and pink undertones, which makes you think of strong femininity and Old Hollywood vibe. Now the most important thing in a perfume of course is the scent, and La Vie est belle Soleil Cristal did not disappoint there either. At first I thought it was a soft floral without much presence, but a good perfume makes a statement after it develops with your body chemistry and that's exactly what I found. As the day went by I could feel all the notes developing and just had a clean, peaceful feeling all day. I don't think this is the kind of perfume you enter a room and everyone looks at you which is fine by me. This is the kind of scent that mixes perfectly with your body chemistry and you can enjoy it, as well as those close to you without overwhelming the room. Another of my favorite things while wearing this perfume was that after work, while working out, I felt the explosion of flowers, citrus and delicious hint of vanilla which were enhanced with my body heat. This perfume is appropriate for work during day time as well as during a night dinner date. I would recommend it and definitely would buy again.
Most Helpful Critical Review Horrible! Orange creamsicle
I love all scents I am not picky! This was one of my many blind buys. I thought the bottle was so cute and that's why I bought it. But this one was HORRIBLE. I could describe it as orange and cream. It smelled very marshmallowy. Very buttery and creamy like literal sweet cream. Just like an orange Creamsicle! Now I like that but NOT AS A PERFUME. Imagine that you mix the orange Creamsicle with a little bit of powder and musk. This is the exact fragrance. It was also super overpowering. I cannot wait to take my clothes off after I sprayed myself. I never get headaches from perfumes but this one gave me a headache and made me nauseous... it's definitely a daytime sent and it's not sexy at all. It also has a bit of maturity to it. Definitely for somebody over 30.. it has extreme staying power I can't stop smelling it even after my shower... that would be great if I liked the scent! But I don't. I do love the bottle though... I need to return this ASAP..

I wanted to love this perfume so bad! I sprayed on the tester strip and it smell amazing. However, once applying it to my skin no one could smell it but me. It did not smell good to me once I applied it. Overpowering smell so much so it made me nauseous throughout my day. I really was hoping to love this. I'll be sticking with my Jimmy Choo I Want Choo. 😪
In love with this scent
WhitneyNoHouston from Columbia, SC
This scent smells so good. I like it better than the original La Vie Est Belle personally. I've been waiting for a month to get my hands on it. I think for the price of this perfume it should last longer.
I get compliments all day long.
Schrodinger's Cat from Phoenix
Seriously - everywhere I go, men and women alike, think this is about the best perfume ever. I have to say I agree - its not too much, the smell is gorgeous, and you have got to try it. I can't speak for the other versions, but this one is spot on.
A perfect summer fragrance
Addy from Florida
This doesn't smell very much like LVEB, so don't buy this if you're looking to stay closely in that fragrance family. However, it's a fantastic light fragrance that wears for a surprisingly long time. I particularly enjoy how the vanilla and coconut pair together. It feels like the beach for me.
ChrissyJ from NYC
Bought this based off reviews and clearly it's a winner. Loved it I bought 6 perfumes in one order and this is the only one that's NOT counterfeit!
Just as amazing as the original!
Gillian from Houston, Texas
Love it! Light and pretty.
LIGHT AND FEMININE
katrinaraee from LA
I really wanted a lighter long lasting LVEB with BEACHY COCONUT NOTES, but thus Parfum was very subtle. The scent wasn't long lasting at all. I wanted a long lasting LVEB with summertime notes. I returned it….
Best scent I have found
Rachel from Illinois
I never ever write reviews, this perfume is worth it though. It smells soft and sweet the vanilla scent stays on your skin all day long. My only issue is there isn't a smaller purse sized spray bottle or roller. It is a newer scent so I am hoping eventually Lancôme makes a purse sized bottle.
sascia b from ny
Thought this was gonna be more of a vacation coconut creamy scent. but it was more floral, strong n mature. def not for the younger crowd. will be returning.
Nova7 from Texas
Love this perfume, summery and elegant, the coconut in this one smells very nice.
Very pretty summer scent
Erin7842 from Michigan
This is my new favorite scent from the la vie est belle line. The smell is so good and perfect for summer and a possible date night perfume. Lasts a few hours. Not overwhelmingly strong but packs enough scent to be noticeable. Gonna get the other 2 scents from this line to complete my collection (la vie est belle and la vie est belle intensement) definately by far the best scent.
Love this scent!
Carlyrichards from Pensacola, FL
This scent is lovely, bright and yet creamy. I tried it before going to the grocery store and someone stopped me to ask what I was wearing. It it literally like sunshine on your skin. I would describe it as the warmth you feel when you've been at the beach all day in the sun. Tropical, yet refined. I bought the biggest size they had!
TOO MANY COMPLEMENTS!
Corachony from Los Angeles
I can't say how many times I been asked mostly by men what perfume I'm wearing, JUST LOVE IT!!
lizburdiz from Indiana
I ordered this perfume online and honestly I was scared because you never know if you will like it going in blind BUT this scent is heavenly it smells so so good
A huge NO!!!!
Eliza888 from Indiana
This scent was not strong on me at all! No one could smell it. Huge disappointment. Staying with original!
Eliza888 from Indiana
I ordered this anticipating something similar to the original scent. The reviewers are saying this is too strong. IMO not string enough! I always get compliments on the original which I love. Could nit smell this on me at all...a huge disappointment. Went back to the original scent that I love!!!
The best perfum
Antonela Fontana from Homestead Florida
Is a scence perdurable all the day with great smell
Yes. I have bought this many times and will again
Karia from Apple valley ca
I wear it almost every day I love it and people always ask what I am wearing
smell so bad
lbw1 from cartersville, ga
smells terrible - and packaging is misleading. Be careful when you are trying to order the original La vie est belle!
MLS from New Jersey
i smelled this in the Ulta magazine on a little pullout card at first. it smells amazing so i tried to order thru lancome and it was such a headache i never got it and i would never use their site again. went to ulta and bought in person and they had a special going on where i got a cute bag too! so cute in fact, that i use it as a purse and get compliments all the time. super happy, smell beautiful, +Ulta saved the day
Just not like la vie est belle products
JudahsDarling from Wilder Idaho
I have been waiting for this. Something fresh and summery and beachy but it did not fit the bill. Also the fragrance is not the least bit long lasting. I have purchased over 8 bottles of LVEB and am constantly complimented in it. Went for Bobby Brown Beach which never disappoints for a summer scent. Will still continue to wear my LVEB when I go to work bc all the guys love it
My new fav scent!

Reminds me of Spring
judalicious from Texas
The scent in this perfume reminds me of springtime. The floral scent really brightens the senses. A little goes a long way!
This is a flop
al from new jersey
This is just an expensive version of bethany hamilton's stoked perfume that comes in the bottle shaped like a surfboard. It smells like play doh left in the sun all day at the beach. Very unpleasant, do not recommend. :( super disappointed because I love the original and this one sounds like it should smell great.
