Created by Olivier Polge, Dominique Ropion and Anne Flipo, La Vie est Belle was released in 2012 and consistently ranks in the top five best-selling fragrances. The story behind the creation of La Vie est Belle is that it took three years and 5,000 versions before they created this absolutely gorgeous fragrance.
"La vie est belle" is a French expression that means "life is beautiful". The fragrance is the first ever iris gourmand that is made with the most precious natural ingredients and is a modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance with a twist of gourmand. Lancome calls it "the fragrance of joyful femininity and happiness. The fragrance that makes life more beautiful."
This elegant, warm fragrance features top notes of blackcurrant and pear; middle notes of iris, Tunisian orange blossom and Sambac jasmine; and base notes of tonka bean, praline, patchouli and vanilla. La Vie est Belle is an eau de parfum, edp.
