Rated 5 out of 5 by velama wow! lots of compliments!
I do not buy alot of perfume or fragrance. I was almost out of my last bottle of cheap stuff and saw the commercial for this. I had a coupon at Ulta, so I went and bought a bottle. I got 2 compliments within an hour of being at work. "What is that really good smell?" , "It smells so good in here." I was so pleased to tell them it was my new fragrance. I will definately recommend it to my friends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FreeAsAButterfly My all time favorite
This is the very first scent that I have ever purchased without trying it first. It was a leap of faith worth taking and I love this perfume.
I truly enjoy perfume and have tried many different perfumes from many different categories and have found it very hard to settle on one that I really adore. I used to have a signature fragrance which I grew out of and I have been searching for a replacement for years now. La Vie Est Belle stands out as the most outstanding perfume I have tried, my favorite all time scent. This is the very first scent I have felt compelled to write a review about.
It is a deep scent with many layers, so unique if you are one who notices the beautiful details in life. I have never smelled a perfume that subtly changed so much over the hours of wearing it. It has many different facets between hints of flowers, hints of fruit, hints of patchouli with the base being vanilla which continues throughout. The sweetness of praline and tonka bean just assist the vanilla scent but do not overpower the fragrance because the other notes balance the sweet base. Vanilla is definitely the main contributor to this scent. Yet it is not a sickeningly sweet scent- the vanilla that continues throughout is gentle and soft and the other notes ease the sweetness, making it very well balanced. It is not too sweet and the gourmand qualities are far from overpowering. This is the most delicate use of gourmand- made to increase the warmth of the scent, but not to overpower it.
This scent blends with your skin to make it unique to you and does not simply sit on the surface. Yet this scent has staying power and it's wonderful to smell the multidimensional changes of the various notes over the hours. I cannot ever picture getting bored with this scent. It is complex and has such a unique composition of notes which are subtly detectable through the hours of wearing it, making this perfume completely different from any other perfume I've ever worn. If you are someone who notices the small but beautiful things in life, you will be able to detect the unique and subtle changes in the scent over the 10+ hours of wear you will get out of this perfume.
I feel like a woman with a beautiful warm sensual scent to complement my radiant smile when wearing this perfume... and yes this scent does make me smile. I have never had a perfume that actually brought a smile to my face before, but this one does. I feel free, happy and beautiful when wearing it, enhancing my love for life. Indeed the saying "Life Is Beautiful" really does describe this fragrance. The bottle too. All of the marketing is completely on track with what is in the bottle. Beautiful overall, truly beautiful.
Thanks to Lancome and the three master perfumers who have highlighted the beauty of each of the special notes in this perfume and reminded us of the gift of scent. What a stunning reminder of the beauty of the small things in life- those things which really make life even more beautiful. La vie est belle!!

This parfum is the best. I love how it changes through out the day. I get so many compliments when I were this parfum. I've had a man come back and ask me what I'm wearing so that he could get it for his wife. THE BEST!

This is a rich, wonderful blend of beautiful scents. It is delicious when first applied, and leaves you smelling gorgeous throughout the evening. It lingers for hours, getting more subtle and yet remains complex. It's a heady fragrance, and I would recommend it to anyone.
