"La vie est belle" is a French expression that means "life is beautiful".

Lancome La Vie est Belle Soleil Cristal Reviews
Fragrantica: "This is a stunning coconut suntan-lotion fragrance. If you want a beachy coconut - this is it!! This is salty, sandy, naked skin lathered in coconut."
Fragrantica: "Soleil Cristal in the dry down focuses more on its tropical aspects with the coconut dampening the intensity of the sweetness."
Fragrantica: "Soleil Cristal is a much less sweet fragrance in this range, and the coconut is a timid note done beautifully here...Just enough of citrus to make the opening bright, the coconut is soft, yet inviting."
