La vie est belle – #MakeSomeoneHappy

La vie est belle – Life is beautiful I believe this to be true, sometimes life has it’s downs but so often we forget that we can in fact #MakeSomeoneHappy ; what does that mean? Well to me it means taking care of my circle, my network if someone close to me is in a bad way or having a hard time then it’s in my power to try and make them happy even if that’s just being there to listen and making them a cup of tea!

Obviously when Lancôme’s la vie est belle perfume launched I was right up in there giving it a sniff and falling for it. It’s the perfect Cara scent in that it is feminine, soft, floral and sweet notes. If you’re one for the official notes:

Top Note: The elegance of Iris becomes the backbone of the fragrance. It blossoms from the first to the last note like never before.
Middle Note: The strength of Patchouli gives strength and depth.
Base Note: A sweet gourmand adds a burst of unexpected radiance.

Isn’t that just the best video campaign? Well Lancôme gave me the opportunity to #MakeSomeoneHappy by giving me a bottle of La vie est belle for myself and an extra one to gift to someone. I chose to gift the second bottle to my mom and wow the look on her face when I gave her a brand new fragrance was priceless, the timing couldn’t have been any better to be honest as she has had a really rough couple of weeks and although a gift can’t fix all the tough things it definitely did spark some joy and she loves the scent!

Lancôme’s new campaign #MakeSomeoneHappy is just that a true manifesto of living a la vie est belle /a beautiful life by sharing and bringing someone joy even in the most simplest of ways.

who will you make happy today?

There are currently three different incarnations of La vie est belle available:

LANCÔME LA VIE EST BELLE EAU DE PARFUM 50ml      R1,440.00    50ml

La vie est belle is a French expression meaning “”life is beautiful””. Incarnated by Julia Roberts, La vie est belle is a universal declaration to the beauty of life. A unique olfactory signature with the noblest ingredients of Concrete of Iris Pallida, Jasmine Sambac, Orange Blossom and Patchouli Essence.


It took them two years to create a new Eau de Parfum, La vie est belle L’Éclat, that expresses how happiness is magnified the more widely it is shared. The fragrance unveils crisp head notes on a soft and generous base, bathed in the radiant freshness of orange blossom. This flower is at the heart of this particular story, both reminiscent of La vie est belle, and yet totally new.
