I have wanted to purchase this fragrance for some time now, ever since I tore a scent card of it from one of my magazines then tried a sample vial of it. La Vie est Belle is the French expression for life is beautiful, the scent reminiscent of sunny spring flowers.
The product’s packaging is truly pleasing to the eye. The set comes in a white box that has a metallic pink top with side panels that open from the middle to reveal an Eau de Parfum Spray – 2.5 oz, Nourishing Fragrance Body Lotion – 1.7 oz, and Invigorating Fragrance Shower Gel – 1.7 oz within. These three are set on top of a very pretty watercolored ballroom scene on the back panel of the box, complete with glittering chandeliers. The smooth clear glass bottle of the parfum, tapers on either side, creating graceful lines that reveal the delicate pink hue of its liquid center.
La Vie est Belle’s scent evokes white flowers, with a mix of Jasmin Sambac Absolute, Iris Gourmand, Orange Blossoms and Patchouli Essence. The Patchouli lends a complex layer to a perfume that beings floral and fruity sweet, then develops into a subtle oriental floral blend with just a note of spiciness. One spray of delicate rosy liquid from this stylish, cool bottle lasts for the whole day. I received compliments on it the first day I wore some of the sample!
La Vie est Belle is a truly gorgeous, feminine scent!
