This high-impact fragrance creates a multi-facetted signature of masculinity.

1 Million has the freshness of grapefruit and invites you into this audacious scent, combining in the top notes with mint and blood mandarin, with a refined yet virile combination of rose, cinnamon, and spicy notes.

The base notes remind you of the ultimate velvet harmony of leather, amber, Indonesian patchouli essences and white wood. Once combined, the result is not merely one fragrance but an elegant, one-of-a kind mix of essences.

For the iconic bottle, the house of Paco Rabanne tapped the famous industrial designer Noe Duchaufour-Lawrance. Referencing Rabanne's legendary use of metallic colors in fashion, this bottle reinterprets the simple yet breathtakingly beautiful bar of gold. Its Wild West type design is a masculine tribute to the pioneers of our childhood memories.

  • Blood Mandarin
  • Peppermint
  • Rose Absolute

La Vie Est Belle - Lancôme, perfume review (fall 2012)

La vie est belle or life is beautiful—the expression of a new era.

perfumes

perfumes

The concept of this fragrance is centered on the idea of natural and simple beauty, freedom from conventions and the choice of once own vision of happiness. The fragrance is a kind of outlook on life, inspired by joy and pleasure in small things.

This gourmand yet elegant composition is developed by perfumers Olivier Polge, Dominique Ropion and Anne Flipo. The final formula is the result achieved after three years of probation and 5000 versions. Iris is the key ingredient of the perfume, surrounded by orange blossoms and jasmine in the heart. The composition’s opening provides fruity flavors of black currant and pear, while the base is warm, gourmand and powdery due to almond-like accords of tonka bean, praline, patchouli and vanilla.

La vie est belle or ‘life is beautiful’ is the expression of a new era. It represents a choice; the choice to break free from convention, the choice to create your own path to happiness. La vie est belle introduces a new olfactive story, the first ever iris gourmand.

The juice is made with the most precious natural ingredients, a modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance with a twist of gourmand. It entwines the elegance of iris with the strength of patchouli and the sweetness of a gourmand blend for an incredible scent with depth and complexity.

"La vie est belle", a French expression meaning "Life is beautiful"; the manifesto of a new era. Universal yet personal, Lancome's femininity is a choice embraced by women, not an imposed standard. The choice to live one's life and fill it with beauty. Your own way.

TLa vie est belle introduces a new olfactive story, the first ever iris gourmand.
