Lancome La Vie Est Belle Eau de Toilette

Lancôme has launched La Vie Est Belle Eau de Toilette, a new fresher and lighter variation on 2012's La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum (and see also: La Vie Est Belle L’Eau de Parfum Légère).

The new version highlights the original's magnolia note, and was developed by perfumers Dominique Ropion and Anne Flipo. Other notes for the fruity floral fragrance include iris, white flowers, patchouli, vanilla, praline and tonka bean.

Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Eau de Toilette is available in 50 and 100 ml.

    I did not care for the original – I found it just the epitome of ‘meh’. I was surprised that it is so popular particularly in France – can it possibly be just be the name that carries it? I think there will be decades of flankers and editions of this thing.

    • Robin says:

      It’s likable…don’t think it’s just the name, but wouldn’t argue with the idea that it’s not an exciting scent. I might like it better with more magnolia, less sweet, so will give this one a shot.

  2. Omega says:

    I hate Le Vie and it is *such* a big seller where I am. ugh. Too dang sweet. Perhaps a fresher take will be better but Lancome sucks as of late, imo. What the heck did they do to Tresor? It’s all sweetened, Hello Kitty now. Gross.

    • Robin says:

      It’s pretty darned sweet. I didn’t try the Legere version though.
