Personally not a fan although others love it. I find it too sweet and cloying. It has really good sillage and lasting power. I'm not sure if it's been reformulated or watered down, I've read...

La Vie Est Belle is my favorite perfume. It has style and it lasts. I like a perfume that smells feminine, and this is it. There is nothing manly about this fragrance. It's all candy and flowers,...

The scent is nice with good longevity (4-6 hours). However, if you live in a very hot and humid area like me, you might want to think again before buying a full bottle. It gets a little cloying...

This perfume is a bit too strong and too sweet for me. Personally, I smell something peppery about it and others I have mentioned it to say they can smell it too. It has a really good staying power...

This review is based on a sample from Nordstrom. Although I like the concept of the notes in this scent, the actual execution of it reeks on me. Not sure if it's the patchouli or iris, but it...

I would definitely say this is a perfume you have to try on your skin, as I think it smells very different on the blotter. It really blooms on skin and smells really feminine and beautiful. I get...

Love/hate fragrance. It is very cloyingly sweet vanilla with strong fruity scent then dry down to spicy, musky, fruity-sweet ashtray scent on me. Vanilla is not so apparent but still there...

Would've been a great performance were it not for the overpowering sugary smell. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, unless of course the nouveau riche.

Gorgeous vanilla fragrance and beautiful bottle. I once went to see a popular band wearing this and the guitarist hugged me and raved how good I smelled. It costs an arm and a leg though so I keep...

Very pretty scent! I saw a lot of comparisons to Flowerbomb, which I also love. This reminds me more of one of the Miss Dior perfumes though. They change formulas so often I'm not entirely certain...

This perfume smells amazing. It has staying power like no other. It is a rather strong perfume so if you're not into that or have a sensitive nose you might want to stay away. It smells sweet and...

This perfume has lasting power and strength, second to none. Lasting power like no other perfume I’ve ever sampled. I love vanilla-like scents and I’m always a fan of that extra touch of patchouli...

Not a showstopping or especially unique fragrance. To me, it smells like V&R flowerbomb but more fruity. A fruity flowerbomb, if you will. I like that it’s feminine, pretty, and fairly strong. It’s...

Several months ago I wrote a scathing review of LVEB, accusing it of being the ultimate in generic, formulaic "mall" scents. I mean, how many candied fruitchouli scents do we need, especially for...

My sister purchased it several years ago simply because she loves every single perfume with sweet notes which is not my favorite at all. I sprayed a little bit on my wrist and once I sniffed I had...

I cannot stand this perfume, it is really cloying and sickening. Very strong and sweet - in a bad way. It make me nauseous.

In my opinion, La Vie Est Belle is Flowerbomb but better. Instead of Flowerbomb’s opening tea note, there’s a slight powdery note in LVEB (the iris??). And it’s sweet… Very sweet. I actually...
