Fragrance File: La vie est belle en rose by Lancôme

Today I’m sharing a brand new fragrance review with you as part of my Fragrance File

Spring may be a distant memory and Summer almost over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t carry the happiness of these seasons with you into the rest of the year…

The iconic La Vie est Belle Eau de Parfum is an ode to happiness and it has recently been reinterpreted into a luminous signature of a peony and roses heart that will allow happiness to linger longer.

La Vie Est Belle en Rose

The Bottle


The bottle of La vie est belle en rose is very similar to the original flacon with a slim, marquise-profiled shape. This incarnation has a tinted diagonal streak of pink running through the bottle. There is also a pretty, delicate tulle ribbon tied at the neck for a touch of whimsy.

The Scent

The Campaign

Who Wears La vie est belle en rose?

This is a very flirty floral scent that will suit someone who enjoys very sweet scents. I have always been a great fan of the original La vie est belle and wear it often. I find this particular version a bit too sweet for myself personally but someone who is ultra feminine, young and fresh may love this version. It will appeal to a woman who is vibrant and positive, seeing the world through rose-tinted glasses and spreading her joy with everyone she meets.


“La vie en rose” is a French expression that translates to life seen through pink tinted glasses.  La vie est belle En Rose paints your world in pink hues, inviting you to always see the brighter side of life. This colourful fragrance spreads optimism with every spritz, allowing those it reaches to experience “la vie en rose” in all its fullness.


See the world en Rose.
