This floral signature fragrance smells divine! La Vie Est Belle’ is a French expression meaning life is beautiful. And life is indeed beautiful if you walk around smelling like a million bucks!

This fragrance is an eau de parfum with ingredients – Concrete of Iris Pallida, Jasmine Sambac, Absolute Orange Blossom and Absolute Patchouli Essence.

 

PROS

CONS

None. I can’t fault this perfume at all.

 

Lacoste Touch of Pink – £29 – £55

This fragrance is a lot less serious than the Lancôme La Vie Est Belle and a lot cheaper. It is a vibrant and youthful fragrance worth trying. 

Lacoste Touch of Pink has both sweet and floral elements which make it a great perfume for young women. It features top notes of Orange, Coriander, Cardamom, Peach and Blood Orange, heart notes of Jasmine, Violet Leaf and Carrot Seeds and base notes of Sandalwood, Musk and Vanilla.

The Gift of a Scent

The gift of a scent is one of the best gifts you can give a perfume lover like me because you are not only giving me a perfect present I would love, you are also gifting me a memory. And since it is the season of giving, I have been thinking of various fragrances and perfumes and which scents I would love to give and receive this Christmas. Choosing the right scent for a loved one can be very tricky, you have to get it right which means you have to know what scents the person would like. It can’t be too strong or too mild, it can be a weak or an overpowering fragrance, it has to be just perfect. Which is why I won’t recommend you buy a perfume as a Christmas gift except you know the recipient of the gift inside out.

Here are a few perfume ideas you may find useful –

 

Estée Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge Eau De Parfum Spray

I love this fragrance. It smells amazing and stays on all day. The bottle is a beauty, and I think it would make a fabulous Christmas present. It may be pricey for many with prices ranging from £64 to £90, but I bet it would make that special person very happy.

 

Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau De Parfum

This is another great Christmas gift idea for a perfume lover. This YSL Black Opium is a lovely and fresh feminine fragrance. The packaging is so beautiful. And it stays on for ages too. Prices vary from £47 to £87.

 

Gucci Bamboo Eau De Parfum

Product Review: Thierry Mugler Womanity Eau de Parfum

DSCF2161

I am a perfume lover, it is a weakness of mine. However now that I work from home, I have cut back on the number of perfumes I have. I use to have about 10/12 bottles at once, but now I am quite happy with 5/6 bottles. I got the 10ml Thierry Mugler Womanity Eau de Parfum from Debenhams to try out some weeks ago and I have used quite a bit of it. Here are my thoughts:

DSCF2164

PROS

  • It comes in a cute refillable bottle.
  • It is small enough to fit into my smallest handbag.
  • I get a lot of positive compliments when I wear it.
  • It is quite affordable at £10 for the 10ml, I used the points on my Debenhams Beauty card to buy it, yea I am a point junkie, ha.

Womanity perfume

CONS

  • I am on the fence when it comes to the smell, I think it smells like a cigarette. Not sure if I like it or not but my hubby loves it.

Have you tried this perfume?
