La vie est belle, “a French expression meaning “life is beautiful,” is about choosing your own path to happiness and inspiring others.
Joyous femininity is expressed through this energizing women’s perfume.
La Vie Est Belle has fragrance notes of iris spring flowers and the intoxicating earthiness of patchouli. These are layered alongside perfume notes of delicious spun sugar and sensual warm vanilla. Plus, like a bright blooming bouquet, it also has other flowery hints of exotic Arabian jasmine sambac and sparkling Tunisian orange blossom.
Complex and modern, it is a unique take on a warm and spicy Oriental fragrance with a twist of florals, and sweet gourmand.
