La Vie Est Belle EDP For Women Review - The Fragrance is Happiness
La Vie Est Belle is one of the most popular scents from the French house of Givenchy; like all perfumes from this line, it's a rich, elegant, sophisticated fragrance with a subtle touch of femininity.
With notes such as jasmine, gardenia, orange blossom, sandalwood and patchouli—as well as a dash of ambergris to add some mystery—the perfume manages to combine elegance and sensuality in perfect harmony. It's an ideal fragrance for women since it doesn't overpower but still leaves a lasting impression.
In fact, many people have called it the ultimate 'everyday' perfume. As the name suggests, the idea behind this fragrance was to create something beautiful that could be enjoyed throughout every day of our lives; like a piece of art that we'd want to keep looking at even after opening the box.
What Does La Vie Est Belle For Women Smell Like
When you first spray La Vie Est Belle you can detect notes of citrus and bergamot. There are hints of rose petals as well. The top note is very strong, but it fades away quickly. This fragrance is meant to be used sparingly because it can easily overwhelm someone nearby if sprayed too heavily. Once the initial burst has passed, you're left with a floral scent with accords of green tea, cedarwood and musk.
The drydown isn't particularly long—about 10-15 minutes. However, the scent lingers on your skin for quite awhile afterward; you'll definitely smell like flowers when you leave the room. The fragrance has a lightness to it as well. It's almost like a summer breeze or spring rain. A few drops will last about 5 hours on me.
One spray usually lasts around 6-7 hours. I've been told it can last up to 24 hours on some people. That's pretty impressive considering how potent this fragrance is. When you apply La Vie Est Belle, don't worry if you feel like you need more than one spray. I often find myself spraying multiple times just to make sure my clothes aren't going to stink afterwards.
La Vie Est Belle has average projection; it can reach a distance of 1-2 inches. This is fine if you're wearing it during the day, but it might not be enough if you plan to use it at night time or anywhere else where there may be a lot of activity happening.
Luckily, this fragrance is fairly versatile since it works well both in the morning and in the evening. You can wear it casually, but it also pairs nicely with formal clothing—especially suits or cocktail dresses.
