Lancôme La Vie Est Belle, yes life is beautiful with this scent!

I received a free sample of this perfume whilst buying another Lancôme product. A little 2ml sample lasted me a week maybe, the fragrance seemed really long lasting. Each time I used it I got a complement from someone about how nice it smells. Once, a stranger in Waitrose sniffed into me and said: “sorry, I couldn’t resist’. Gosh! I though, this fragrance must be really strong! My little sample has run out a week later but by then I knew that I will purchase the 100 ml bottle.


I was quite lucky as not long from then I was travelling to Budapest from Heathrow and I planned to purchase it at duty free. At that time the fragrance was on promotion and in the end I paid around £66 (RRP £82 for 100ml). I had a quick chat with the lady and she said that this scent in no 1 fragrance in France and no 4 best selling perfume at Heathrow (Chanel no 5 is the no 1 best seller but bear in mind that Lancôme La Vie Est Belle has been launched only in 2012!).

So what it is like on my skin? To me it is a luxurious, super feminine, every day fragrance, perfect for work wear. I tend to like sweet and woody smells, but this one isn’t sweet and woody it is just so elegant.

Top notes: Pear, black currant

Heart notes: Orange blossom, jasmine, iris

Base notes: Praline, vanilla, tonka bean, patchouli


I never had so many compliments about the fragrance I am wearing (except  Versace Crystal Noir but that’s for many more of an evening fragrance).

Try it and see how it boosts your confidence!

Hello, hi and czesc!


Welcome to my blog.  I thought a while whether to make and introduction or not, but in the end I thought I will. So here I am fulfilling my dream of having a blog. What you will find here is lots of tips, fashion advices, healthy recipes, and recommendations but hopefully plenty of inspirations.

This year I celebrated my 25th birthday and I could honestly say: ‘I am happy’ so I hope I can share my recipe with you on how to be happy and how to feel fulfilled by feeling good, looking good and eating good.

Also I would like to specify that I am Polish and therefore I was wondering for a while should I write on Polish or should I stick to English? England is where I currently live. I love English and this is the language that I use on a daily basis I thought I best stick to it!

Happy reading x
