Since 2012, Lancôme has been a brand that shines through one of the most famous smiles in the world. In this case, it is that of the very beautiful actress Julia Roberts. The latter is, in fact, the face of the Lancôme house for its fragrance La Vie Est Belle. This immediately met with great success and is one of the brand’s essential essences. Also, at the start of 2016, it has been revisited and offers us a concentrate of femininity. Prepare for its arrival, by the month of February, the new La Vie Est Belle L’Eau de Toilette Florale will appear in your perfumeries.
A revisit of the emblematic Lancôme bottle
The history of La Vie Est Belle perfume itself dates back to 2012. On the other hand, that of its bottle is much older. This was, in fact, imagined in 1949 by Armand Petitjean and Georges Delhomme, artistic director of the Lancôme house. Both then had the ambition to radiate the particular aura of women. They then created this bottle whose transparent base forms a radiant smile. However, the Lancôme house decided that it was necessary to insert a fragrance sticking to this image. However, none was convinced at that time.
This case nicknamed “the crystal smile” was therefore put away for many years. It was not until the release of La Vie Est Belle in 2012 that it was finally unveiled to the general public. Also, on the occasion of the release of L’Eau de Toilette Florale in 2016, it was slightly modified. Its design is notably elongated and it is seen with a white organza bow. The latter forms two limpid petals or two wings symbolizing freedom. La Vie Est Belle thus becomes a true concentrate of femininity and purity.
The scent of the new La Vie Est Belle L’Eau de Toilette Florale
Each of the versions of La Vie Est Belle highlights one of its original facets. Also, L’Eau de Toilette Florale highlights the femininity of this essence by delivering a huge bouquet of flowers. However, its scent does not lack vitality and dynamism.
This immediately appears from the top notes via bergamot, pink pepper and blackcurrant bud. Then, the essential element of this juice makes its appearance in its heart. These include osmanthus. This one is a rare shrub native to Asia whose flowers give off a floral and suave fragrance with fruity accents. Given its high cost, it is reserved exclusively for fine perfumery. In addition, it is known to enhance the femininity of the essences that contain it and give them an exotic touch tinged with apricot scents. It is then accompanied by jasmine, iris, orange blossom, mimosa, magnolia, violet and rose.
Finally, L’Eau de Toilette Florale ends with a more intense and deep wake. This one consists mainly of patchouli and musk.
