Life is Beautiful with Lancome

It’s yet another week of fragrances. There are three this week, so here’s the first.

The beautiful Julia Roberts is the face of Lancome’s latest scent, La Vie Est Belle which means ‘life is beautiful’. Thankfully this version is much more cheerful than the movie! In fact, she did her own…

Based on the ideals of natural and simple beauty, this scent evokes your own sense of happiness. It sounds all light and carefree, but this final version we will smell is the result of 3 years and 5000 variations! Yikes!

Black currant and pear open, giving way to iris, orange blossom and jasmine. It finishes on a sultry accord of tonka bean, praline (yum), vanilla and patchouli.

The classic–looking bottle is just that. It’s a reincarnation of a 1949 Lancome bottle.

It’s in stores now in 2 sizes: 30ml EDP, R590 and 50ml EDP, R840.
