It is on a commercial for the perfume brand, with the first spot launched back in 2011. I'm guessing that the inclusion of patchouli is meant to evoke the earthy quality of iris root, but instead it's essentially a gentle, warm patchouli married to some creamy jasmine and a hint of vanilla. It will also attract her fans and more than likely influence them to buy the perfume just because she wears it. The Pretty Woman actress told Hello! This almost gave off the idea that she was walking up to the light as you would going to heaven. She is very well known and considered very high in society.
The patch balances the fruity sweetness. The dry down was disappointing, though. Will try La Vie Est Belle for sure as I try all new releases. I kind of get Flowerbomb and I also get Miss Dior Cherie. The juice is made with the most precious natural ingredients, a modern interpretation of an oriental fragrance with a twist of gourmand. I do love Traversee du Bosphore! Not a huge fan of Lancome, I was recently gifted Tresor for my birthday, not sure if I like it before opening the box, I tried it at the store.
But it is mind-boggling to mix so many notes only to produce something that reminds consumers of something else. It was done by Publicis 133, Paris advertising agency. Over the years, I've had mixed reactions to Lancôme's perfumes: I enjoy Trésor and , but I was disappointed in and Miracle. These choices of attire gave off the sense that the guests at the ball had a considerably well amount of money and were highly ranked in their social circles. It wears so elegantly, and yet it has that sensual streak that makes it fun. That being said, I will reserve Lancome for the sexy nights…and Flowerbomb for my corporate days. She has beenn with them for a while.
You have to get close to figure out what you're dealing with. Rated 5 out of 5 by Mssouthernbelle from They always want to know what I'm wearing!! Mainstream perfumery is going down the drain. Lancôme La Vie Est Belleincludes notes of Florentine Iris pallida, iris aldehyde, jasmine sambac, black currant, pear Tunisian orange blossom, Indonesian patchouli, vanilla, tonka bean, and praline. They only serve to underpin and very feebly round out the sickly sugariness of it all. August 16, 2012 at 7:33am Anne Sheffield: Just re read me…. Constantly under fire for skin smoothing, Lancome is sticking by its spokesgirl.
Most celebrities seem the same to me, as do their perfumes. She provides the commercial with outstanding credibility because of her stats in her career. Oooh, you are going to love this! The perfume itself is made of just 63 subtle ingredients and was the creation of three French masters of perfumery; Olivier Polge, Dominique Ropion and Anne Flipo, who aimed to create 'the first ever feminine iris'. This big Lancôme launch takes a lesson from its flop Magnifique and does everything by the book: a fetching package check , something pink check and a safe, easy to like perfume check. From December 16, 2018 to December 22, 2018, Lancôme will donate 10% of 6.
Anyone else saw the ad? Even tho I hate this new Lancome, I think your review is very thoughtful and well done, Jessica. Hence the name of the perfume. The ballroom has very light deeming to it, giving off a very drawn out feeling of the atmosphere. DescriptionThis commercial begins at a fancy party in Paris. I was not left with the impression that it was some random bottle of trash to which a celebrity thoughtlessly lent his or her face. Franky September 1, 2013 at 2:38pm Patsy: I have worn this since its release … I get comments daily — fresh, clean. Once more, she strides through the room to touch another wall that crashes down, exposing a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower amid the Parisian skyline.
Grant always exhuded class and distinction, and that's probably the image they're trying to foreward for this product. Possibly of interest My fav sweet, wearable patchouli is Jessica Simpson Fancy Nights. Similar vibe to Sweet Redemption. Oh, Rubj is another top favorite. Thanks for the review, Victoria! August 15, 2012 at 2:07pm Wesley Parker: Thank you so much Victoria! Under the chandeliers, everyone is dressed in black which Julie Roberts walks in the room in a long, white dress. Regarding the ad, I am sorry to say, I will not buy a perfume to smell like Julia Roberts and the ad is quite ugly. In my little world I still like to believe that Chanel, Hermes, l artisan, guerlain… Etc, all still create in a small dark room, with magic books and wooden floor, and only a few people, surrounded by glass jars containing rare flowers, leaves and cristals and moon dust, all brought back after dangerous adventures round the world by indiana jones….
Or perhaps, my standards are so low for these big launches… August 15, 2012 at 1:58pm behemot: I absolutely agree with your remarks how Lancome has changed. Still — I did not detect any hint of iris, none. August 16, 2012 at 4:35am Austenfan: Gave this a sniff today. The idea behind La Vie Est Belle is not new as both and pointed out in their reviews. And I get a headache. But don't know what that has to do with Lanc? That Gucci one with Blake Lively looks uber silly too. All comments are positive and glowing.
The fragrance that makes life more beautiful. August 15, 2012 at 12:35pm : Vilette, thank you very much for your offer! The perfume has fruity flavour notes of blackcurrant and pear, with tones of tonka bean, praline, patchouli and vanilla. I get a leathery iris note in the heart, but mostly powdery-musky Turkish Delight in the drydown. The fragrance was still there. Positively the most magical commercial I have ever seen.
I do smell just a little iris in the top notes amidst fruit. I get a teeny bit of iris in Iris Ganache, but not much. Both the women and the men wore black attire which gives off the impression that they are all alike and that they are dull people. This commercial is basically saying that walking in the light God is freedom and makes life more beautiful than being a slave to the world no matter how glamorous it may seem therefore if you buy the perfume you will see that life is beautiful. However, I don't think he is supposed to be him in this commercial, or that there's really any implied connection with the name of the perfume and Cary Grant. Everything is too obvious predictable and therefore has absolutely no finesse. Any shot of Julia Roberts movie Eat, Pray, Love would have done.
