La Vie est Belle "Life is Beautiful " some of you may remember I put this gift set to one side till my Debenhams points were added to my Beauty club card, so this was the weekend I brought my baby home as @Boss786 would say.
The main ingredient is the heart of the Iris which is one of the most precious & scarce ingredients of perfumery along with orange blossom & jasmine making it feminine. Then you also have vanilla, blackcurrant and pear .It took 3 years to develop this scent & over 5000 versions before the perfumers were satisfied.
I didnt realise that the bottle is designed like a lady's smile & has it's own name Le Sourire de Cristal ( Crystals smile ) which was initially created in 1949 and then adapted for La Vie est belle all these years later after looking at the archives.
Personally I feel this us sophisticated & feminine and all the ingredients blend together beautifully. Long lasting but not overpowering. I just used a couple of pumps & it lasted at least 4 hours but then I'd get a whiff of it when I least expected it ! Just "Belle "La Vie est Belle
This perfume sounds like something that I would really love too @Galara01 , strangely enough I have never smelt it, but after seeing this post I will make sure I do. Hope your baby is loving it's new home!
@Beauty1 Its taken me till now to give this a try , I saw it on offer so grabbed a sample from the SA to see how it was with me ,then she put it aside till my points went on so it's not been too expensive.
