Lancome La Vie est Belle Fragrance Review

First impressions of this were good - a gold and white sparkly box containing a gorgeous, heavy glass bottle. 
La Vie est Belle's bottle is très chic indeed - all minimalist but beautifully designed, and wearing a jaunty neck scarf which makes me think of elegant French women. 

To be honest, I wasn't expecting to like this perfume at all, simply because I'm not a fan of any of Lancome's other perfumes. I feel that they're more suited to the more mature woman (I'm fooling no one, but I like to keep up the illusion, to myself at least, that I'm still a young one). However, I was pleasantly surprised. I really like this - it's fresh and fruity but also has some musky, powdery substance to it as well. 

Iris is described as the 'backbone' of this fragrance, and it's combined with jasmine, orange blossom, Patchouli, vanilla, praline and pear. Yum!

I've had so many compliments on this and one of the girls in work even bought it after smellling it on me.  It has great lasting power too, I've had comments on it hours after I've sprayed it and long after I've stopped smelling it on myself. 

La Vie Est Belle is available from Lancome counters nationwide - I recommend that you go and have a sniff - you may be pleasantly surprised like me. The RRP is €47 for 30ml. €65 for 50ml and €80 for 75ml. As Christmas is coming up there are some great value gift sets available, where you basically get some complimentary body products for free - score. 

I'm currently rotating this with Thierry Mugler's Angel which is my favourite Winter perfume OF ALL TIME. What's yours?
