Lancome La Vie est Belle Eau de Parfum ($55-$95) sounds like a fragrance that will make my head spin right round.
Inspired by the French expression, La vie est belle, meaning, life is beautiful this scent scent hopes to fill your life with beauty.
But it contains patchouli.
Housed in a cut crystal glass with a delicate silver ribbon tie and fragrance the color of a blushing rose, this perfume does indeed brings the beauty.
Lancome La Vie est Belle Eau de Parfum introduces the first ever iris gourmand, made with the most precious natural ingredients. The modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance with has a gourmand twist. Entwining the delicate iris with the strength of patchouli and the sweet edge of a gourmand blend for scent that promises depth and complexity.
They had me iris but they slayed the heart out of my chest with patchouli.
But sometimes, done right, I can get on board with patchouli. I do worry it’ll overtake the beautiful iris in the mix.
It’s on my sniff list.
On Lancome counters soon.
What do you think it’ll smell like?
