This is Angel, 20 years later. The fruit-patchouli accord that inspired a thousand imitators (earlier ones being Sonia Rykiel, Flowerbomb, Prada) has evolved into something smelling like a cross between Lanvin Rumeur and Coco Mademoiselle. It also, oddly enough, smells slightly like Narciso Rodriguez. Notice the trend? All new fragrance releases are starting to smell alike. La Vie Est Belle does not break any new ground, but if you're looking for a sweet, strong, rosy, yet youthful fragrance that has notes of fruit to make it more playful and patchouli to give it depth, you may want to give this a try.

I am lucky enough to live on the US/Canadian border so I buy my perfumes at the Duty Free Shops on both sides of the border at truly amazing prices. For example I purchased today Forbidden Euphoria /3.4 ounces/ by Calvin Klein for the unbelievable price of $64.50 and Eternity Summer/3.4 ounces/ by Calvin Klein for $ 49.60.Thus being said ,I was really looking forward to try on LVEB, as I was obsessed with the bottle. This is like, the prettiest perfume bottle I have ever seen, so classy and elegant. However, when I sniffed the tester card ,it felt like I've got a punch in the face........ I must have made an instant grimace of repulsion. This fragrance is so sickly sweet, sugary and cloying......I could not sense patchouli notes, just loudly pronounced burned sugar with a flowery twist. Some people here compared it to Flower Bomb by Victor & Rolf, so I sniffed the Flower Bomb too. Ouch! Too heavy, overpowering and powdery flowery. I don't think both fragrances are similar , their only similarity is that they are both nauseatingly strong and intense scents, almost suffocating. So if you like to make a statement by smelling like a woman from a Turkish harem or a Burlesque dancer, these both perfumes are the way to go. But not for me. I love beautifully made,elegant, understated scents that are pleasure to wear both for me and the people around me. So, Thumbs Down for LVEB. Too bad, I really wanted to like it , the bottle is gorgeous.

Have received also a sample and was quite curious as this perfume was in every magazine I looked. When I tried it on my hand, I couldn't believe this fragrance was so popular. One word: afwul! Will never purchase!

I got this as a sample from Ulta. When I sprayed this I thought, I have smelled this somewhere before. Now that I look at other reviews, it has to be Flowerbomb. It has the same sweet floral quality. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, check this out. I however, will not purchase.

It was love with the first... smell. Once I smelled it, I fell in love with this perfume. It is feminime, intense but sweet, girly but sexy... It reminds me of candy, so if you don't like sweet frangrances, it's not a god option for you, but if you do like them I think you will love it!!!!! It makes my day when I smell this perfume :)

This perfume smells like caramel, vanilla, and sugar - with some floral. I like it, but it's very mediocre. I feel boring when I wear it.
Sometimes, the smell is too girly for me... no intrigue. That said, I think this would be great for younger gals in their teens.

I am a signature fragrance person, I do not wear numerous perfumes. Until receiving La Vie Est Belle as a birthday gift I have been wearing La Chere which was purchased during a trip to France. Immediately with the first note I knew this was an amazing fragrance, it is soft but full of glorious scents. No one overwhelms the other, Iris, Patchouli, Vanilla , spun sugar and pecan are a few of the flavors used to create a beautiful aroma. Unfortunately I do not have the ability to describe how exotic, sensual, sophisticated and lingering this fragrance is. I never review fragrance as every female is different wanting for a scent uniquely suited to her. La Vie Est Belle is a signature fragrance, one that years from now someone will remember you by. I hope this helps anyone who is considering trying La Vie Est Belle
