Lancome La Vie Est Belle

Lancome La Vie Est Belle - eau de parfum for women

La Vie Est Belle by Lancome - "'La vie est belle', a French expression meaning 'Life is beautiful'; the manifesto of a new era. Universal yet personal, Lancôme's femininity is a choice embraced by women, not an imposed standard. The choice to live one's life and fill it with beauty. Your own way. Lancome has long fostered this conviction, and shares it today with all women in the form of an exceptional creation. The fragrance of joyful femininity and happiness. The fragrance that makes life more beautiful. La vie est belle introduces a new olfactive story, the first ever iris gourmand. The juice is made with the most precious natural ingredients, a modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance with a twist of gourmand. It entwines the elegance of iris with the strength of Patchouli and the sweetness of a gourmand blend; for an incredible scent with depth and complexity."  --lancome-usa.com

Notes
La vie est belle introduces a new olfactive story, the first ever iris gourmand. The juice is made with the most precious natural ingredients, a modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance with a twist of gourmand. It entwines the elegance of iris with the strength of Patchouli and the sweetness of a gourmand blend; for an incredible scent with depth and complexity.

Top Note: The elegance of Iris becomes the backbone of the fragrance. It blossoms from the first to the last note like never before.
Middle Note: The strength of Patchouli gives strength and depth.
Base Note: A sweet gourmand adds a burst of unexpected radiance.

Sweet Life
Lancome's La Vie Est Belle is a candied mix of iris, patchouli, and praline. We asked three women who personlify French elegance if La Vie actually is belle -- or if it's just comme ci, comme ca.

"It smells almost like candy. I would wear it in the morning if I wanted to feel very happy, to make the day sweeter." -- Garance Doré, photographer, illustrator, and writer

"The spices and coriander stand out. A strong, confident woman would wear this." -- Mireille Guilliano, author of French Women Don't Get Fat

"It's very sugary and girlie. It's a party perfume for a young, playful girl." -- Catherine Malandrino, fashion designer

Beauty Talk - Julia Roberts
The actress and supermom dishes on her new fragrance.
"In a world where everyone puts their name on everything, this huge company lauches this huge fragrance and packages it in this quiet, beautiful bottle."

Lancome La Vie Est Belle L'Eau de Parfum, $75/1.7 oz.; lancome-usa.com.

You're the face of Lancome's new fragrance, La Vie Est Belle. Since you've said that you'd never attach your name to a fragrance you wouldn't wear, what drew you to this particular scent? - "I have an aversion to perfumes that are too powdery-smelling, and this is the complete opposite. It's not too flowery or too girlie. It has earthy notes, like sandalwood, that ground the sweeter flavors. And it smells a bit different on everyone, which is nice."

Belle Epoque
"No fruity notes" was the only request Julia Roberts made to the perfume-world dream team (Dominique Ropion, Olivier Polge, and Anne Flipo) behind her first fragrance with Lancome. From Ropion came a white floral, Polge crafted a dry iris, and Flipo whipped in a lush vanilla. The result, La Vie Est Belle ("life is beautiful"), lives up to its name.

Seductively Juicy Spritzes
Of all the fall fragrances we studied and sprayed, these are most likely to send a guy into a slightly-obsessed-with-you state of mind.

If you want to smell all Girlie-Girlie
Historically, florals (these have hints of rose, tuberose, and honeysuckle) have been associated with femininity and romance.
