I've always found it hard to write reviews on perfume... I mean, without getting someone to actually smell the bottle how are you supposed to get across the notes of a fragrance?! Lancome launched their newest perfume La Vie Est Belle last year and the scent is so delicious I wanted to share it with you!
Before picking up this bottle, one of my top 3 perfumes was Lancome Trésor Midnight Rose (the one in the purple bottle!) Just like Midnight Rose this perfume is very sweet but is a lot more citrusy, in particular orange blossom, so it's perfect for Spring/Summer!
This gorgeous scent was created by not just one perfumer... but 3 of France's top perfumers: Anne Flipo (creator of Lancôme Trésor Midnight Rose), Dominique Ropion (creator of Thierry Mugler Alien), Olivier Polge (creator of Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb). It's definitely not suprising that Le Vie Est Belle has been compared to Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb as Olivier Polge was bought on board!
The perfume comes in a spray glass bottle which has a square lid, it also has a cute little silver bow round the neck which reminds me of a neck scarf that a chic Parisian would wear!
This perfume has definitely stepped up to the favourites league. I've found I'm wearing it spray almost everyday (still saving the Chanel for nights out!) I spritz this around my hair, chest and wrists and it lasts all day. If you get a chance I would recommend giving it a spray at your local John Lewis/House of Fraser etc.. It's always good to keep an eye out for their gift sets too as you can usually get a body lotion chucked in for free!
