This is my favorite new perfume. I absolutely love it!!!! I also love the lotion (almost as much) and the shower gel.

I've had a sample of this for a while and avoided trying it, because the patchouli & praline made me think it would just be a disappointing Angel clone (I love Thierry Mugler's Angel, but the million fragrances made to somewhat copy it tend to be awful on me). Much to my surprise, I really like this and can't pick out the patchouli or praline at all. On me, this is mostly jasmine, iris, and vanilla with undertones of pear and currant. It's definitely a warm, sweet fragrance, but the jasmine and iris give it a sensual, perfumey feel that cuts through the sweetness nicely. A lot of floral blends tend to be too sharp and give me a headache, but I really like La Vie Est Belle. Sweet, vanilla-y floral. It's almost warm, sunny, and reminiscent of honeysuckle and golden sweetness on my skin (actually, it reminds me quite a bit of the sweet Miss Dior Cherie). I'm not sure if I'd ever purchase a full bottle, in part because I own a bottle of Miss Dior Cherie, but I do like this.

This fragrance contains: Patchouli, Orange Blossom, Gourmand, Jasmine, and Iris Palida. And in my opinion the marriage of these ingredients is absolutely phenomenal. Each component complements one another. It is strong, but not over-bearing. In fact, I think it is a bit intoxicating to the wearer and others.
Whenever I wear this fragrance, I feel sexy, pretty, and oh so feminine. It lingers a bit when I enter a room; but not in an obtrusive way. It simply envelopes your senses and that of others. This has become a Holy Grail fragrance for me because of the way it makes me feel. In every sense of the word--like a woman!

Nordstrom sent me a sample of this with some makeup I ordered. It is overbearing, cloying, way too sweet and headache inducing. Usually I give away sample vials I do not care for , but that I think my daughter or a friend might like. I actually put the vial of La Vie Est Belle in a ziplock so it would not stink up my garbage can. Yes, that is how godawful I thought this was.
I rated this a 3 on packaging and price because I have no idea what they are. I wish MUA would let us not rate those for fragrance, but I can never seem to post a review without having to do so.

Ah La vie belle. When I first smelled I fell in love and KNEW this would be my signature scent. After buying it I am kind of on the fence now. Dont get me wrong this scent smells great and unique but to much fruit for me. This fragrence is by far THE best out of all of the Lancome perfumes and if you want to smell elegant this perfume is the way to go. I do feel that the bottle is a little bit to much, and perfer something more simply

when you first sprits it on it is a blend of britney spears fantasia and escadas moon sparkle, other words- nice but generic. on the drydown it's smells beautiful floral and caramel, reminded me of ysl candy. I tested this in the store on my handwrist and my clothes. now the other day on the morning it's still on my wrists and i can smell it in my room it's smells sweet pear lol. Want the whole bottle for summer, makes you feel happy it's very summery.

I received a sample from Sephora, sprayed it on, and I wish I hadn't. It's just another sweet, sugary, vanilla-y fragrance that stops short of giving me a headache. I'm glad I didn't buy it. As the sweetness fades, an old-fashioned powdery scent emerges, which reminds me of inexpensive DS fragrances of long ago. I expected more from Lancome.

Ugh, this is so SWEET! :o( I just can't wear this or the very similar Flowerbomb (and I have both). La Vie Est Belle is a milder version of Flowerbomb to me -- but they're both just too candy syrupy sweet (and I generally like sweetness).
It gets compliments, however. I once wore it to work, and a coworker immediately said "You smell good!" when she came near me. I have a feeling people are really going to like La Vie Est Belle (Julia Roberts being the face doesn't hurt) -- and it's probably going to be hugely popular, and a big best-seller for Lancome.
I do consider this a crowd-pleaser. If I'm planning to be closely around people, I think wearing LVEB (or Light Blue, or Viva La Juicy) will get a big thumbs-up from anyone who smells it.

This perfume is housed in such a lovely bottle! So chic! At first, it is quite sweet, but then it dries down into a really lovely day scent. I was actually surprised at the complexity of it, and I think I go against all those who complain of its sweetness. It isn't cloying to me, despite the fact that I rarely like the very sweet fragrances. This one is feminine in every sense of the word. And I do think it'd be suitable for all ages.

In absolute love with this fragrance. A great perfume for the office that is not overpowering. :)
