It's been over 7 years since my last Lancome perfume purchase. That is such a long time, now that I think about it! I am a huge fan of Lancome at it was the only brand that I ever purchased for many years. My favorite of their scents is Poeme, and that is the last perfume I bought from their counter ($98 for a 3.4 oz bottle way back then). The other day at Ulta I tested their newer scent La Vie Est Belle and OMG I fell in love with it. I tested it that day and for the rest of the day I could smell it on my wrist. Then we went again and I did the same thing, each time trying to talk myself into buying it but not really wanting to spend the $75 on it that it cost. As you can tell by the more than half full bottle of Poeme above, I don't really wear perfumes, I mostly buy them but then forget to put them on. That is why I was hesitant to spend so much on it, but it beat me in the end. When I got an email from HSN last week with a 20% off coupon, I went ahead and ordered it. With the coupon my bottle cost $63.64, which is not bad at all. I realized there was nothing wrong with buying myself a gift for the holidays, after all I already bought everyone else plenty of stuff. Today it arrived and it is heavenly!!!! It smells so amazing: warm, cozy, fruity and sexy all at once. And it's so beautiful to look at too. That is one of the many things I love about Lancome, their presentation is always on point!
I love this perfume and I am so happy I got it. I am going to make sure that I actually use it and not just let it sit there and get old. If you have been looking for a great signature scent, I really suggest testing this one out. I love it!
