I will be the first to admit that I am a picky person when it comes to perfume. I don't mind what brand it comes from but if I'm not fully in love with the scent then I kjust won't bother with it. I was sent Lancome's La Vie est belle and I wasn't sure whether I would fall in love with it like so may people already have or if the mammy was going to be the one making the most of it.
The packaging is so well put together. They included the rose symbol on the inside and on the top of the perfume . My favourite part (aside from the holographic sparkles which cover the front and back of the box) is the bar code on the back which they adapted so it looked like the perfume bottle. Lancome really make the packaging reflect the quality of the product.
Now onto the product itself. La vie est belle is sweet but still a mature scent. It is a warm scent, so it would be perfect for winter. One spray of this will last the entire day. It's the longest wearing perfume I have ever had, it is incredible. Even now a day after spraying it on my clothes I can still smell it. You are getting great value for money with La vie est belle, which cannot be said about all perfumes. It feels like a "special" perfume. One you would reserve for particular occasions like graduations, birthday's, wedding's etc so when you smell it, it brings back memories of those days. It is beautiful.
A 30ml bottle costs €47 in Debenhams (Free shipping) or €50 in boots.
