La Vie En Rose
For the first few hours this is straight intense candy cotton on me. After that it dries down to mostly Vanilla with some Patchouli. What I really love about this is how long it lasts and projects even in a hot tropical climate I live in Mumbai. It's so funny, most people seem to think that hot humid climates demand for lighter perfumes as heavy handed ones would be to 'cloying', but going back and forth between Germany and India frequently, I really never shared that experience. Light fragrances just vanish in extreme humidity at least on me. You might as well spritz water on you. Besides the fact that you're sweating more and nothing sticks quite as well to you, I also feel a higher concentration of humidity in the air doesn't allow the scent molecules to travel as easily. Everything gets kind of pressed down. So yeah, even if not super complex to my nose this is a performer in India as well as Europe. In Germany one-two spritz are plenty. In Mumbai I need easily 6 for the same effect, but then it's lovely pick that makes you instantly feel more feminine for the rest of the day. Not very sure yet if I'd repurchase once my bottle is over, but I would definitely always appreciate it as a gift any time. Jul Frogopolis This fragrance is okay, but not special. I mean, Lancome hyped it SO heavily in Three master perfumers and thousands of focus groups were involved in this "first-ever iris gourmand" It's got some pear, some blackcurrant, a metric ton of praline-caramel-vanilla, and a demure sneeze of patchouli. In other words, YAWN. I can't argue with its longevity or sillage it beats out Opium and Giorgio for sheer molecular concentration , and it's clearly made with quality ingredients. I also can't argue that it smells "good," in the same way that food court pizza tastes "good" ie, not the best of the genre but perfectly palatable. I only wish that Lancome had applied some of that quality to a different and more interesting sort of scent. I just don't end up wearing this much, even though the neck-tie bottle is super elegant. It just screams "mall" to me and I like more character in my perfumes. My mother, who hates perfume in general and complains rather than compliments when I'm wearing any fragrance, actually said I smelled nice the other day. I didn't know I'd be seeing her, as I would have skipped perfume. This might be the first time I'm able to purchase perfume for my mom Lol I wear this first of all because it's just beautiful I love a sweet fragrance that lasts, and this is one of the few that works with my chemistry. Yes it's extremely sweet, and packs a patchouli punch, but to me that's a good thing. Jun StrawberryX I can understand why this is popular, but on my skin is is just too much sweetness and patchouli. This was a scrubber. Jun FireFlySF Since I joined Fragranctica, I have read pages and pages of informations about fragrances, and countless helpful reviews from this website that tremendously have helped me understand fragrances and "scents" better in general, as well as "notes". Even though there have been many opposite opinions and experiences, just like many of you here, men and women, at some levels, I too share a passion for fragrance. So thank you Fragrantica. I have owned and worn LVEB for quite a long time. LVEB is among the group of my very first few perfumes that I bought to start my collection. I like it very much and I still don't quite have a specific reason why I never paid attention, nor bothered writing a review for it anywhere. I felt like I have taken it for granted. And now, from one fragrance lover to another, I think it is time for me to express my gratitude to it in return: LVEB is one of a very few fragrance lines that I truly enjoy the original version. With other lines, I tend to prefer their flankers better. I'm not a fan of patchouli in general, but by a miracle, it works here for me, especially when combined with tonka bean and vanilla in a particular ratio as they plan out in LVEB. The whole combination turns into something rather comforting, soothing and very enjoyable. Imagine this, after a long dreadful trip away from home, you return to your comfort zone in a warm evening, relaxing by the fire, on your favorite spot on the couch, wrapping yourself with a light throw on your shoulder, and a cup of hot cocoa, or hot chocolate on your hand. It is how LVEB starts out and always makes me feel that way. I have learnt that praline note performs differently on people. When combining with other fruit notes, it can multiply the sweetness of the composition and turn it into a sugar bomb. The praline here on me, I'm just lucky that I do not experience that magnification. In a contrary, it smells creamy, buttery delicious and has just a RIGHT amount of the bitterness and sweetness, enough to be like a yummy bar of smooth dark chocolate, without any "burnt", or "artificial", or "overly sweet" side effect. Again, it must have gotten the main help from vanilla and tonka bean, and maybe also with other less dominant fruit notes combined. When I first started wearing LVEB for few weeks, a friend of mine also tried it and ended up hating it. I thought because she did not like it, and of course I did not wanna offend her with this fragrance, so anytime we hung out, I wore something else. After awhile, just out of the blue, my friend asked me why I stopped wearing LVEB, as she noticed that I had changed my fragrance. She finally let me know that she missed smelling it on me, and she also "hated" me for the reason that I could pull it off nicely, while on her, the scent just turned into a sugar beast: And that is the "miracle" part and "beauty" of any fragrance. With so many scents, I just envy whoever can make them shine, while with some others, I'm happy making them mine: This perfume is made with precious natural ingredients, very impressive, different from all the other Lancome perfumes. This is the perfect fragrance for the woman who wants to smell classy and elegant. I recommend spraying it very lightly. It is long lasting and powerful scent. I get compliments every time I wear it.
