  43. I die a small death whenever I have to leave the store without the new fragrqnce La Vie Est Belle Eau De Parfum. The very first time I fell prey to this mesmerising bouquet of sheer feminine essence I fell in love with life all over again and I didn’t wash the tshirt for days… I let the smell linger in my cupboard so each time I opened it I smiled with sheer bliss…… now I cannot go by a shop without getting excited!
