Oh Yes.Yes!!! These are the best. When I have gone to Europe, I bring or slush around bottles in my suitcase, hoping they don't break. Go to wherever pharmacy is nearby-I have bought them in Paris. I love the lavender and rose myself.
I love the splash more than having a spray, since I wear after a shower. put pn my hair, is jut lovely
And although a pain to transport in suitcases, I love the glass container.
I have not seen them in Mexico or Puerto Rico or the Bahamas
UNFORTUNATELY not available in USA. :((((

* In French, "Bien-Être" means well-being. Launched in 1962, this simple, classic and affordable eau de cologne is a staple in many French bathrooms and vanity cabinets. This is quintessential classic French eau de cologne. It owes its fame to its light and delicate, all-natural fresh scent and its composition of 100% natural essences. It is soothing and refreshing without any fuss. Bien-Être reminds me of my childhood as it was the very first fragrance I ever wore. And even though I wear more sophisticated fragrances nowadays, this scent always brings me back to the good ole days! It's light, cheerful and clean-smelling. To me, this is the more elegant French version of Jean Naté After Bath Splash by Revlon that was ever popular in the US back in the 1970s and 1980s. Remember that? ;)

* I like to transfer some of the eau de cologne into an atomizer for easy spritzing because alas, this doesn't come in a spray format! A very versatile and light fragrance, it's perfect as an after-bath splash on the skin or a skin refresher in the warm, summer months. It's also great to use for lightly perfuming household linen. And sometimes I like to add a few drops of Bien-Être in my bathtub.

* Originally, there was only one scent and it was the original vetiver (green cap) but now there are several more varieties available including: natural (white cap), lavander (blue cap), rose (pink cap) and the newest, orange blossom (orange cap). As far as I can tell, the original vetiver scent has not changed at all This is good, since it seems that fragrances are reformulated all the time and often not for the better either unfortunately. The packaging is the same as it has always been, a simple 250 ml glass bottle with simple lettering and design. And amazingly enough, the price hasn't changed at all either! Still as affordable as ever at around only €5 and available at pretty much all large retail stores (aka: grand surface) and drugstores. My family and friends back home always ask me to bring them a bottle (or two or three . . . ) when I return home for the holidays. It's good stuff.

* "Bien-Être" is truly a French oldie but a goodie and a definite keeper for me always!
