Lancome La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum

I find perfume really difficult to review and write about, it's very much a personal thing and describing a smell is pretty tricky.  I received this for review.  The packaging is quite cute, it comes in a white glittery box (it's cute but I don't think the box really goes with the bottle or the perfume) and the bottle is a bit of an unusual shape but feels nice and sturdy.

Described as "an eau de parfum with the noblest ingredients combines concrete of iris pallida, jasmin sambac absolute, orange blossom absolute and patchouli essence, lain on a bed of fine delicacies."
I actually really liked this, and I didn't expect to, it's fresh and light without being too clean-smelling or floral despite the orange blossom and patchouli (not a huge fan of overly floral perfumes).  I've been using this every day since I received it as I find it really wearable and not at all heavy.  There's a bit of a sweetness to it which I personally really like.

I'd definitely give this a try if you're looking for a new every day perfume that's easy to wear or possibly if you're looking for a gift for someone as I honestly this is the type of perfume that a lot of people would like.  Lancome La Vie Est Belle available from Selfridges from £39.

Have you tried this perfume?  What did you think?  Any other recent perfumes you've tried and liked?


  1. Oh, I haven't tried this one but it does sound lovely!
    Just the other day I got Lancome's Tresor 'In Love' Eau De Parfum and it too is so light, and very fresh... I'm already almost addicted to it. Perhaps it's a Lancome thing? xx
